Listening to the ABC news radio on the way home is fraught with peril. Several motorists were this close from being rammed due to road rage. Today, ABC revealed that "some people" are questioning donations Hillary Clinton received from people who were granted a pardon in January 2001 by her husband. Then it was time for the big bombshell from ABC News' Jake Tapper to explode. Was there a quid pro quo? Is there a cabal of illegal donors fueling her money numbers?
Three recipients of controversial 11th-hour pardons issued by former President Bill Clinton in January 2001 have donated thousands of dollars to the presidential campaign of his wife, Democratic front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., according to campaign finance records examined by ABC News, in what some good government groups said created an appearance of impropriety.
Here is the real story. Of 177 people pardoned by Bill Clinton in 2001, 3 have donated a combined amount of $5,300 to Hillary's run. Perhaps Ken Starr can take a leave from Pepperdine to investigate this criminal activity that appears to be the Teapot Dome, Watergate, and Who shot JR all rolled up into one gigantic cesspool of muck that could shake the nation to it's very core. Clinton's team, after cowering under their desks for days, did respond to Jake "Morley Safer" Tapper from an undisclosed location.
"We have raised over $65 million from over 200,000 people," said Clinton campaign manager Howard Wolfson, adding sarcastically, "I appreciate your bringing the instance of this $5,300 and these three people to our attention."
Damn right he was sarcastic. This is pure bullshit. My question is why those ungrateful criminals aren't more appreciative. That's the scandal. 1 in 57 pardonees ponied up cash to Hillary. Unless that $5,300 bought Hillary a new pantsuit with super powers, Jake Tapper looks like a real asshole.
