Oh. My. Word.
The folks on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, were just ruthless Thursday morning as they discussed the most recently released leaked memo from WikiLeaks. (The full download is available at WikiLeaks.)
When top Bill Clinton aide Douglas Band wrote the memo, he was a central player at the Clinton Foundation and president of his own corporate consulting firm. Over the course of 13 pages, he made a case that his multiple roles had served the interests of the Clinton family and its charity.
In doing so, Band also detailed a circle of enrichment in which he raised money for the Clinton Foundation from top-tier corporations such as Dow Chemical and Coca-Cola that were clients of his firm, Teneo, while pressing many of those same donors to provide personal income to the former president…
The memo, made public Wednesday by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, lays out the aggressive strategy behind lining up the consulting contracts and paid speaking engagements for Bill Clinton that added tens of millions of dollars to the family’s fortune, including during the years that Hillary Clinton led the State Department. It describes how Band helped run what he called “Bill Clinton Inc.,” obtaining “in-kind services for the President and his family — for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like.”
Hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent roughly 20 minutes hammering Bill and Hillary Clinton as well as their closest allies and aides for their despicably corrupt and immoral behavior. What’s even better is that barring a few weak attempts at softening the blow from “journalist” Mark Halperin, even the devout liberals on the panel took turns bemoaning the desperate straits our nation is in when we are actually considering someone as awful as Hillary Clinton for President.
Grab a tub of popcorn, pull up a comfy chair, enjoy the mayhem and then share it with all your friends.
