Sharyl Attkisson: Hillary Should Have Focused on Appearances

Monday, 27 Apr 2015 04:28 PM

Hillary Clinton — embroiled in a scandal involving alleged improper donations to her nonprofit Clinton Foundation — should have been more concerned with appearances over the years, Emmy award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson says.

"There's a higher standard, obviously, for public officials who want to continue in public office," Attkisson said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV.

"I would just say they should be more concerned about appearances every step of the way. Clinton has known for decades that this was the path that she would ultimately take."

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.

But Attkisson said it will be hard for Republicans to prove wrongdoing by Clinton, who is running for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

"Republicans are having a hard time just as a group, maybe not individually, deciding what to do and what kind of strategy they want to have on all fronts, whether it's this or HealthCare.gov," she said.

"With all the stories I've covered over the years with Democrats and Republicans regarding campaign contributions and handing out earmarks to pet projects, in so many cases, you can draw a direct line from conversations they had to a project they founded, to a campaign contribution they got.

"Yet, in the end, you have to get inside their mind to be able to prove they say it's a quid pro quo. 'Well, in my mind, I was just helping somebody I would've helped anyway.' If that's your bar, that's going to be a really high bar to cross."
