It’s already been established that the Clinton Foundation has some shady donors on their books – perhaps the most prominent being the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
It’s not just her Foundation that has some questionable donors – her campaign finances are stuffed with dirty money as well.
Nobody in America is surprised to learn the FBI is investigating Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, D, over campaign contributions. Disregard for rules is part of who McAuliffe is, and it is typical of the Clinton fundraising world.
But don’t confuse cause for effect: McAuliffe isn’t shady because he’s a Clinton fundraiser. He’s a cherished Clinton fundraiser becausehe’s shady.
Terry McAuliffe, Marc Rich, Mikal Watts, Arthur Coia, Rahm Emanuel, Hassan Namazee, Norman Hsu, Johnny Chung, Charlie Trie, Jim McDougal, Mark Middleton, Maria Tsia, Antonio Pan — these are all Clinton fundraisers who have been indicted, investigated, or caught up in shady fundraising.
This isn’t a coincidence. Shadiness in fundraisers is a virtue to politicians who are comfortable with vice.
And that’s just surrounding her 2016 Presidential Campaign. This isn’t the first time one of Hillary’s campaigns for public office has had some shady fundraising practices going on. You can read more about it in a great piece from the Washington Examiner.
As for her competition, nearly 70% of Trump’s campaign is funded by himself. Twenty-five percent of his financing comes from minor individual contributions. It’s pretty obvious that he’s not beholden to any special interests.
