Clinton Foundation President Contradicts Herself on Courtesy Appointments for Donors!

From Jeff Dunetz at the Lid…

Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala needs to make up her mind whether or not foundation donors were able to trade their donations for access to Hillary when she ran the state department.

Never happened, I don’t care who asked for what. It never happened. It just did not happen.”

As you know he’s a key guy there, and to us, and is loved in Lebanon, very important. Huma Abedin at State Department says it’s Jeff Feltman, I’m sure he knows him. I’ll talk to Jeff. Doug Band says better if you call him, now preferable. This is very important.”
