Clinton Foundation President Struggles To Defend Inappropriate Favors

During an interview with CNN, Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala struggled to defend inappropriate favors that Clinton’s State Department granted to Clinton Foundation donors.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Shalala if she was “comfortable with the Clinton Foundation executives asking State Department for favors and access?”

“You know, no one should cross any line,” Shalala said.

“Requesting a courtesy meeting when I was Secretary of HHS, for instance, by a Republican Senator was not unusual” Shalala added as a bit of a nonsequiter.

But according to the New York Times, it appears like Clinton may have crossed the line Shalala:

“The documents raised new questions about whether the charitable foundation worked to reward its donors with access and influence at the State Department, a charge that Mrs. Clinton has faced in the past and has always denied.”
