WikiLeaks spells out the latest bombshell about the Clinton Foundation in the form of a memo written by Doug Band, the longtime errand boy of the Clintons, writes Kimberely A. Strassel in the WSJ. “The memo removes any doubt that the foundation is little more than an unregistered super PAC working on the Clintons’ behalf.”
Here’s the lasting takeaway: The Clintons spent their White House years explaining endless sleazy financial deals, and even capping their exit with a scandal over whether Bill was paid to pardon financier Marc Rich. They know the risks. And yet they geared up the foundation and these seedy practices even as Mrs. Clinton was making her first bid for the presidency. They continued them as she sat as secretary of state. They continue them still, as she nears the White House.
This is how the Clintons operate. They don’t change. Any one who pulls the lever for Mrs. Clinton takes responsibility for setting up the nation for all the blatant corruption that will follow.
