Hillary Clinton's Press Secretary Brian Fallon on Wednesday tweeted that one of the Clinton Foundation's donors was GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

 

 

Trump had called for an investigation into donations to the Clinton Foundation, claiming it sold access and political favors. "I say shut it down," Trump said in a statement Monday.

An editorial by Caleb Howe for Red State said that Trump is calling for the Foundation to be investigated after he said in January he donated to politicians in order for them to carry out his wishes.

In January, the Washington Examiner reported that Trump said, "I've got to give to them, because when I want something, I get it. When I call, they kiss my [expletive]." Trump said about his then-opponents for the Republican presidential nomination, "I was looking at the ones I'm running against. I've contributed to most of them — can you believe it?"

Howe said in his Red State article that the situation should be investigated and everyone who participated should be denounced. "One of the candidates for President is demanding the other be condemned and investigated criminally for participation in a mutual transaction between the two of them."

The situation is endemic of the current election cycle, Howe added. "It really is an absurd situation. Very 2016."

Howe also noted that Trump said he believed Clinton should get the "benefit of the doubt" when it comes to millions of foreign dollars the Clinton Foundation received.

"Isn't that interesting?" Howe asked.

Fallon on Wednesday slammed a report by The Associated Press which claimed more than half of non-government individuals Clinton met while she was secretary of state were Clinton Foundation donors.

"This story relies on utterly flawed data," Fallon said.
