Leftmedia Circle the Wagons
Influence peddling and money laundering? Nary a peep.
Hillary Clinton is the Leftmedia’s candidate. This was made clear yet again when they declared her primary victory a day early. But it’s also painfully clear when it comes to the Clinton Foundation. As readers of these pages will recall, Bill and Hillary Clinton, supposedly “dead broke” upon leaving the White House in 2001, soon began the Clinton Foundation to do philanthropic work around the world. Or so they said. In reality, of course, it was nothing more than a slush fund for the two to enrich themselves and avoid the inconvenience of paying so much in taxes.
Worse, the former first couple used the Foundation to peddle influence with foreign governments while Hillary was secretary of state. More than a dozen nations secured approval from Clinton’s State Department for major arms deals — after donating to the Clinton Foundation. No doubt that was mere coincidence…
Put another way, the nation’s top diplomat took money under the table in exchange for favors for other governments and influential people. To say that’s not how U.S. foreign policy should work is a gross understatement.
In fact, we believe the Clinton Foundation was a primary consideration for Hillary when she chose to operate a private email server instead of a State Department account. What better way to hide her utterly corrupt money laundering operation?
But is any mainstream media outlet talking about this? Are any reporters asking Hillary about anything other than what it feels like to make history — or “herstory” as one outlet put it? No, nothing but softball questions for Clinton. Instead, the 24-hour talkingheads would rather bloviate about Trump University. Trump’s no innocent bystander, but the bias is incredible, even if it’s something by which we’ve never been surprised.
