Clinton says she gave $100K to vets groups in 6 years

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton donated $105,000 to veterans’ groups from 2006 to 2012, her campaign said Wednesday.

The Clinton family’s personal charity donated to eight groups across the country in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 during that time period, The New York Times reported.

The disclosure comes as presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump faces questions about his donations to veterans groups.

Trump on Tuesday released a full list of veterans groups he said received $5.6 million in cash from a fundraiser he held in Iowa earlier this year.

But critics, including Clinton, said Trump was shamed into making the contributions by the media pressure.

Several of the groups reached by The Hill, including the Bob Woodruff Foundation, said they were only contacted by Trump’s camp within the last week.

Trump, in a combative press conference Tuesday at Trump Tower in Manhattan, said he had raised “close to 6 million dollars” for veterans groups, four months after making the pledge in late January.
