Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday dodged a question about whether the Clinton Foundation has been "100 percent ethical."

"I think the Clinton Foundation, like all foundations, has found themselves in a position where things are changing," Biden told MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt.

The vice president added that he thinks the Democratic presidential candidate will "change to the realities of how complicated it's all become," referring to the ongoing controversy regarding "pay to play" allegations and lingering questions over whether foundation donors were given special access to Clinton when she was secretary of state.

Pressed on whether the Clinton Foundation should stop accepting money from foreign governments, Biden responded, "I think you'll see them stop taking foreign donations." The Clintons have said that they will continue accepting foreign donations until the election, should she win.

Asked about the controversy last week, Clinton called recent allegations made by her GOP rival, Donald Trump, "ridiculous." She also dismissed as "absurd" a recent AP report that found at least 85 people who had private conversations with Clinton while she served as the nation's top diplomat also donated to the family's charity.

“I know there’s a lot of smoke and there’s no fire," Clinton told CNN's Anderson Cooper.
