Hillary won't diminish connections to Foundation as POTUS

Rachel's last question to Hillary was about the appearance of possible impropriety when the Foundation recruits (large) donors from foreign countries and U.S. who might appear to be seeking favors or connections from her position as nominee or POTUS. (Such as the Saudis getting arms deals after donating money.)

Answer: We will just continue to be transparent, as we have been for years.

Hmmmmm. I guess it means a full casino of pay to play.

1. Transparent because we saw the emails about the pay-for-play arms deals, etc...

 

Wow. So removed from things she can't even see the problem.

6. Being transparent is certainly not a reason for a cabinet head to set up their own private server.

This is especially troublesome for a high ranking one; Secretary of State to do so, it shows no respect for transparency.

Thanks for the thread, grasswire.

7. Of course not. She's not loyal to the people, she's loyal to herself. Period.

 

That's all she'll ever be.

11. She's as transparent as Al Capone.

If there was ever just 1 reason for there to ever be an FBI investigation started, this would be it!!

12. Whoa!

That is frightening.

Good catch, grasswire. Can you find a transcript or something? We should document that for posterity.

I assumed that she would say something along the lines of if she was elected president, she and Bill would break all ties with the Clinton Foundation to avoid any possible appearance of conflict of interest. The fact she wouldn't say that shows incredible hubris.

The mind boggles with the possilibities of quid pro quo corruption!

15. Rachel specifically asked her if the Foundation would divest or dissolve..

...can't remember which word she used. Hillary said nope. She doesn't want to lose all the opportunities for doing good in the world that the Foundation provides, and all the creativity of the staff yada yada.

I will look for video Thursday, Paul.
