Sanders Attacks Clinton’s Corruption, Round Two

Yes, Clinton has changed her positions because of money.

Was it Groundhog Day? Thursday night, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders took the stage for a debate ahead of the New Hampshire primary next week. The two covered much of the same ground they did the night before at a forum hosted by CNN: Sanders attacked Clinton’s Wall Street connections and Clinton once again tried to defend herself.

“I just absolutely reject that, Senator,” Clinton said to Sanders regarding his claim that special interest groups corrupted her, “and I don’t think these attacks by insinuations are worthy of you. … But you will never find that I’ve changed my view or my vote because of any donation I ever received. And I’ve stood up and I’ve represented my constituents to the best of my ability. … I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks.”

This is part of the tussle the two have been having on who is the most progressive. Sanders is most ideologically pure. Clinton says she is a pragmatic and realistic progressive. But there are several instances where Clinton has changed her vote because of money. In 2004, then-professor Elizabeth Warren said that, at the end of Bill Clinton’s term, she met with the then-first lady to discuss a bill that would have reformed bankruptcy law. After her talk with Warren, Clinton got her husband to defeat the law. But when she turned senator, Clinton voted for the law. Warren said Clinton was swayed by money. And let’s not forget the pay-to-play culture fostered by the Clinton Foundation. Thanks to a donation to the Clinton Foundation, this is probably why Russia controls 20% of uranium production in the United States. Both candidates would damage the nation. Clinton would do it through corruption.
