Rep. Blackburn: Media Not Giving Clintons a Pass This Time

Monday, 27 Apr 2015 04:58 PM

Rep. Marsha Blackburn says Hillary and Bill Clinton will not get a free pass from the media this time around as revelations about alleged improper donations to their Clinton Foundation and alleged collusion with the White House emerge.

"You are seeing the media go, now wait a minute, wait a minute guys, this is just a little bit too much for even us," Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"And when you look at the fact that they cut a deal basically with her as secretary of state so that the Clinton Foundation could continue to accept some of these contributions, but would have to practice full disclosure …"

A new book, "Clinton Cash" by Peter Schweizer, alleges the State Department under Hillary Clinton approved of the sale of one of America's largest uranium mines at the same time a charity supported by the Clinton Foundation received a donation from the seller's charitable foundation.

The book is also said to outline a number of potential conflicts of interest between Clinton's work at the State Department and her charitable work. One involves alleged money funneling involving Haiti relief.

"It is just amazing when you look at this tangled web they have woven. The State Department, with Secretary Clinton in charge, decides they're going to embark on what is termed Operation Gold Rush. They put money in there though U.S. aid to help with having Haiti stand up on their own two feet," Blackburn said.

"Bill Clinton comes in to serve as co-chair of the IHRC, which is the Haiti Relief Corporation, and all of a sudden what do you have? You have all of these companies with Clinton ties that are getting these very lucrative contracts.

But, you had people that were also members of the IHRC writing the U.S. government saying, look, the needs of the people of Haiti are not being met and talking about the … corruption and it would appear from what we have read and heard that really basically nothing much was done about it."

But Blackburn believes the public is wise to what was really going on.

"David Remnick wrote in the New Yorker magazine a couple of weeks ago, related to Hillary's email issue … [that] it's one thing for politicians to do stupid things, it's another for them to think that we're stupid and that we're going to believe this or fall for this, but they do," she said.

"As I have said many times, Slick Willy did not get his name for no reason and that is when Bill Clinton was termed Slick Willy."

The Clinton Foundation scandal, Blackburn said, "is going to bite [Hillary Clinton] in the end because she is upside down on her trustworthiness numbers and the American people don't believe her."
