ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: The list that launched a few hundred stories during the Democratic primaries is finally out: The Clinton Foundation on Thursday posted its complete donor list on its Website, under an agreement that clears the way for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to become Secretary of State. In just a glimpse of the complicated Web of financial interests spun by former President Bill Clinton, the list spans 2,922 pages on the Website. The two biggest — in the “Greater than $25,000,000″ category — are The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and UNITAID. Foreign governments and interests are everywhere on the list, led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which donated between $10 million and $25 million. Also giving more than $10 million: Canadian businessman Frank Giustra, producer Steven Bing, billionaires Tom Golisano and Ted Waitt, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Other foreign governments that donated money include Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica, per the AP write-up.
