It’s another exciting episode of everyone’s favorite fake internet game show — Name That Pundit! Today’s mystery writer has been a defender, a fan, and perhaps even a friend of Hillary Clinton’s for more than two decades. And yet, when this longtime Washington insider got a hold of Peter Schweizer’s new book, Clinton Cash, here’s what they had to say:
If the data in Schweizer’s upcoming book, Clinton Cash, survives the vetting it will get from the mainstream media, Clinton will have to clean up her act. Aside from actual wrongdoing, and there’s no evidence of that, this is about the appearance of conflicts of interest, and in politics, appearances are everything.
The most damaging concerns have to do with foreign money seeping into the Clinton family foundation and whether any of that money found its way to her campaign. Should she become president, would these foreign friends that have enriched the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons themselves through exorbitant speaking fees receive preferential treatment?
“If I were a foreign government, I know which horse I would back,” says Craig Holman, public affairs lobbyist for Public Citizen.
Can you Name That Pundit?
Would you believe…
That’s right, folks, Eleanor Clift.
Et tu, Eleanor?
Maybe this has something to do with Clift’s turnaround:
The Clinton Foundation has been added to a charity watchlist that includes the American Red Cross and the Breast Cancer Society, Inc. The Charity Navigator website aggregates several instances of misconduct over time, before officially adding charities to its watch list.
As far as why the Clinton Foundation was added to the list, Charity Navigator cites several instances from reputable sources.
Keep in mind also that the Foundation has given only 15% of its donations to actual charities. The rest has gone… where, exactly?
That’s the next big story I’d like Clift to look into.
Until then, thanks for playing Name That Pundit, and remember — Hillary Clinton belongs in jail.
