The Key is What Did Bill Clinton Spend the Money On?

According to this article in The Washington Post the Clinton Presidential Library has raised millions from foreign countries and donors. See Clinton Library Got Funds From Abroad. The key is not that he got money from those sources but how he used it. If Bill and Hillary were taking these non-profit donations and funding their lifestyle out of it, then that is probably bad. For Hillary, it might even be a violation of campaign finance rules. There is no way of knowing without figuring out what they spent it on. The Post got the info mainly by just asking people, the Library won't release its donor list. More to come I am sure, as Barack Obama has already raised this issue. To be fair, the George H. Bush Library also took money from overseas.
