John Halperin of Bloomberg, hardly a left-wing radical, said Sunday that senior State Department officials would have been fired for the things Hillary Clinton is already known to have done.
Honestly, it’s hard to even believe Hillary is still taken seriously as a candidate at this point. But then again, she’s Hillary. No Republican could survive this.
I mean, get Elizabeth Warren in there. At least she seems to have principles, even if I don’t agree with them.
From Halperin’s appearance on ABC’s This Week:
HALPERIN: The Clinton Foundation does great work. Some of the charges against her are overstated. That’s on one side of the ledger.
On the other side of the ledger, it’s extraordinarily serious. Imagine if an assistant secretary of State had done what Hillary Clinton — we know that she did. They’d be out of the State Department.
STEPHANOPOULOS: They with which things?
HALPERIN: Co-mingling a family foundation, donations from foreign governments, increased speech fees and government actions. We don’t know that…
STEPHANOPOULOS: But we have no evidence of government action.
HALPERIN: Well, there were government actions taken. What we don’t know — and this goes to the — to the deleted e-mails — is what kind of communication did Hillary Clinton have on her private e-mail account regarding her husband’s speeches and regarding the foundation activities that involved foreign donations.
