I did some research on my own to check on thesr donations and came up with the following April 2015 statements from the The Washington Free Beacon:
"Few corporate entities have managed to entwine themselves in the Clinton financial empire more thoroughly than Microsoft, a 20th century technology company that presumably feels great affinity toward a couple of 20th century politicians trying to recapture past glory.
"The feeling is apparently mutual. Hillary used Microsoft software, for example, to operate her now-deleted private email server.
"Microsoft has been supporting the Clintons years. When Hillary Clinton ran for president in 2008, Microsoft was one of her top campaign contributors: the company’s employees and political action committees donated $184,119.
"Microsoft is a regular sponsor of the Clinton Global Initiative, and has donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which also sponsors CGI events, has donated more than $25 million to the foundation."Coincidence, perhaps, but the ties that bind have a funny way of ending up tipping the scales in a favored direction.
