The Clinton Foundation acknowledged Sunday that it made “mistakes” on tax forms, but denied allegations of cronyism sparked by a new book.

The charity founded by former president Bill Clinton has been under fire this month thanks to allegations made in the book “Clinton Cash” and related news reports alleging that donors to the foundation received special treatment from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

“[Y]es, we made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do,” Acting CEO Maura Pally wrote in a blog post Sunday. “But we are acting quickly to remedy them, and have taken steps to ensure they don’t happen in the future.”

The mistakes made involve tax filings, which the foundation decided to resubmit to the IRS after Reuters raised questions about discrepancies. “Our total revenue was accurately reported on each year’s form – our error was that government grants were mistakenly combined with other donations,” Pally explained.

“Clinton Clash,” premiering at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16, is a “devastating” documentary, according to MSNBC, alleging Bill and Hillary Clinton used the Clinton Foundation to “help billionaires make shady deals around the world with corrupt dictators, all while enriching themselves to the tune of millions.”

The film, written and produced by Breitbart News executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon and directed by M.A. Taylor, is based on the New York Times bestselling book of the same name (subtitled “The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich”) by Peter Schweizer.

MSNBC got an “exclusive first look” at the documentary, which is strategically set to hit U.S. theaters on July 24, one day before the start of the Democratic National Convention:

“The movie alleges that Bill Clinton cut a wide swathe through some of the most impoverished and corrupt areas of the world — the South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia, India and Haiti among others — riding in on private jets with billionaires who called themselves philanthropists but were actually bent on plundering the countries and lining their own pockets.

“In return, billionaire pals like Frank Giustra and Gilbert Chagoury, or high-tech companies like Swedish telecom giant Ericsson or Indian nuclear energy officials — to name just a few mentioned in the film — hired Clinton to speak at often $750,000 a pop …”
