The Clinton Foundation took donations from the family that made a fortune off OxyContin — one of the opioids fueling an addiction epidemic former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now campaigning to fix.
The presumptive Democratic nominee has a $10 billion plan to deal with the nationwide addiction problem driven by these opioids, and recently embraced the idea of a federal tax on the drugs. But what she’s leaving out on the campaign trail is that the man who made billions off OxyContin’s invention donated to the Clinton Foundation, reports The Washington Free Beacon.
“We’re not just now ‘discovering’ this problem,” Clinton says on her campaign website in reference to the addiction epidemic. “But we should be saying enough is enough.”
