More Corruption from Clinton
) Just hours after Hillary Clinton dodged a question at the final presidential debate about charges of “pay to play” at the Clinton Foundation, a new batch of WikiLeaks emails surfaced with stunning charges that the candidate herself was at the center of negotiating a $12 million commitment from King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
One of the more remarkable parts of the charge is that the allegation came from Clinton’s loyal aide, Huma Abedin, who described the connection in a January 2015 email exchange with two top advisers to the candidate, John Podesta and Robby Mook.
Abedin wrote that “this was HRC’s idea” for her to speak at a meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative in Morocco in May 2015 as an explicit condition for the $12 million commitment from the king.
“She created this mess and she knows it,” Abedin wrote to Podesta and Mook.
WikiLeaks is a gift that keeps on giving.
But rampant election-related corruption and a State Department that was clearly for sale doesn’t seem to matter to the electorate. I guess that we will have to wait until November 8 to see how all that shakes out.
Thoughts on Trump
Donald J. Trump is not a good debater and his ego doesn’t allow him to take sound advice or to practice. Though with the shrill, unending attacks from the mainstream media, maybe it doesn’t matter how well he debates so long as he gets his point across?
Thoughts on Clinton
A Clinton presidency takes away all pretense at a Republic and we just need to do what we can to get by. Some of us will do better than others, but the federal government (which is already for sale to the highest bidder) will be openly so. The feds were Obama’s attack dog but it will be worse under a Clinton Administration. Count on it.
