“President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has informed the Senate Armed Services Committee that he will not provide foreign financial details for the corporate and nonprofit organizations he was affiliated with since he left the Senate in 2009,” reports BuzzFeed.

Hagel maintains that he has a “fiduciary duty” to keep “confidentiality” of his and his organization’s donors.

A Senate aide tells BuzzFeed, “Senators are not reacting well to [Hagel’s] response.”

The aide details, “Committee members have specific concerns with regard to foreign contributions to the Atlantic Council by Saad Hariri (or the Hariri family), Dinu Patriciu, Kazakhstan, Bidzina Ivanishvili (his supporters/network) – and the nexus between Chevron’s investments in Kazakhstan and their involvement with Hagel at the Atlantic Council.”
