Donald Trump is starting his attack on the revolving door of influence peddling that is the Clinton Foundation as detailed in the blockbuster book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.
So what is Hillary’s response? Here’s what she told Anderson Cooper as reported at Politico:
The Clinton Foundation had “overwhelming disclosure” regarding its donations, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday, defending herself against Donald Trump’s latest attacks on the nonprofit while also acknowledging that “one or two instances” may have “slipped through the cracks.”
Trump on Tuesday accused the former secretary of state of turning the State Department into a private hedge fund, arguing that “the Russians, the Saudis and the Chinese all gave money to Bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return.”
Asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper whether Bill Clinton would divest the Clinton Foundation should the former first lady win the White House, Hillary Clinton demurred.
“We’ll cross that bridge if and when we come to it, but let me just try to set the record straight. We had absolutely overwhelming disclosure,” she said. “Were there, you know, one or two instances that slipped through the cracks? Yes. But was the overwhelming amount of anything that anybody gave the foundation disclosed? Absolutely.”
Well that’s settled, right?
