“Mr. Clinton and the Tycoon”

Here’s an editorial in the Washington Post that raises many of the same points made in our recent profile of the William J. Clinton Foundation. (An abridged version of our profile appears in this week’s Human Events.) An excerpt from the February 4 editorial:

Mr. Clinton may not be the only former president who’s engaged in cozy back-scratching with self-interested businessmen and distasteful regimes. But he’s the only former president who’s married to someone who wants to be the next president. The Times story underscores the potential problems this could create. Among others, Mr. Clinton has said he would continue raising money for his foundation if his wife were elected president. This strikes us as a bad idea, one fraught with possibilities for conflicts of interest and questionable efforts to curry favor.

Writer Deborah Corey Barnes discussed the Clintons’ well-documented legal and ethical slipperiness on our January 15 online radio show, which is available here. For more background, be sure to see Hillary: The Movie.
