    I guess, Pete, that you are all in favor of supporting a presidential candidate that's pretty ugly on all fronts. Well, there's no accounting for taste, I guess.

    Makes me wonder if you'd just as easily accept an equal level of stink from a more conservative candidate that Media Matter is trying to character assassinate rather than to protect. My money is on that you wouldn't.

    Ak shucks I guess the right will have to try again to find something that sticks. Looks like their latest attempt at trashing Clinton has been debunked.

    I did. My take away was that he was raising reasonable questions as to conflict of interests and questionable money flow, which, if memory serves, your Media Matters article in defense didn't address at all, other than a timeline that I'm rather suspicious about.

    I'm ambivalent about all this now, to the point that I want to see some court quality evidence for or against in support of these questions. Of course, given the present media reportage, I doubt that I'll see it. It's also without a doubt that you'll see that vindication that you seek, and also without a doubt that it'll remain remain less than convincing to others.

    Frankly, if you are in high office, and seeking higher office, it would be reasonable to expect that you'd steer clear of any possible conflict of interest allegations (shouldn't the leader of the free world be above reproach? A position of strength?), but also inevitable, that the Clintons don't believe that they have to play by these rules.

    The one thing I wonder Monte, is if this isn't in some part coming also from the far left progressive wing trying to take Hillary out so that Warren can be conscripted.

    Re: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

    Looks to me like a slush-fund under the guise of a charity.

    There are two components to the Clinton Foundation, one is US based and the other is Canadian based. However, the component finances are so intermingled that they are essentially one entity. The donor rules are different in each country though. Clinton's promise of Foundation transparency apparently doesn't apply to the Canadian component. Of $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013, just $9 million went to charity work. This is far below the 75% rate that non-profit charities should spend on missions. $86 million went to "administrative costs" such as first-class air tickets for the Clinton's and the salary of the Foundation CEO Eric Braverman ... who is a friend of Chelsea's and both worked together at McKinsey & Co. Braverman left the Clinton Foundation earlier this year due to arguments about reforms he wanted to impose on the charity. He was replaced by Donna Shalala, the former Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Bill Clinton. The charity watchdog Charity Navigator placed the Clinton Foundation on its Watch List.

    Between 2001 and 2012, Bill Clinton gave 13 speeches which earned him $500,000 or more. 11 of those 13 speeches came after Hillary was SoS. The cynical among us might view this as influence peddling.

    While the State Department headed by Hillary was involved with the uranium deal with Russia, investors in Uranium One gave millions to the Clinton Foundation. While his wife was US Secretary of State, Bill Clinton accepted $500,000 in 2010 from a Russian bank (Renaissance Capital) with close ties to the Kremlin.

    The Clinton Foundation received millions from Uranium One investers, Bill received $500,000 from a Russian bank with ties to the Kremlin, and a Russian company now controls 20% of the US uranium market.

    And "just providentially" we are asked to believe ... Hillary elected to delete all of her private emails spanning the time frame above.

    Good summation there.

    Yeah, it definitely doesn't look good. In fact, it looks really ugly. It looks corrupt, and smells of bribes and as you said, influence pedaling.

    Given the politically and ideologically driven DOJ that we have, there'll never be any sort of investigation on this. Hill & Bill knew this to be the case when they did these things. As always, Hill & Bill push it right up to the edge of what they can get away with, disregarding both the spirit of law and letter of the law, as well as what best for anyone but themselves. They then have the gall to present themselves as some sort of public servants.

    What utter BS they ply, and what utter BS their eager supports lap up.

    One can only hope that their Karma will actually catch up with them one day.

    Maybe, I've no doubt such things happen within the internal workings of both parties.
