Uncommon Commentary #458: A Foundation of Lies

The author of Clinton Cash will deserve a medal if his exposé causes Hillary [sic] to lose next year’s presidential election.  He has found a pattern of donations to the quasi-charity called the Clinton Foundation, and/or payment of absurdly high speaking-fees to Bill Clinton, by foreign entities that had dealings with the US Department of State during Mrs. Clinton’s reign over Foggy Bottom.  These correlations don’t prove corruption, but there’s clearly enough evidence to warrant a government investigation; anyway—this is my snide remark for today—, the mere fact that Bill received such exorbitant remunerations for his addresses suggests that those remunerations equated to bribes of his wife as Secretary of State.  How much money would you pay for a speech by a blathering windbag like Bill Clinton?
