The House Minority Leader heaped praise on Donald Sussman, who has faced scrutiny over offshore tax havens.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) heaped praise on and asked the audience to clap for Democratic mega donor Donald Sussman at the Center for American Progress Ideas Conference on Tuesday.
“May I just say, many honors are afforded a member of Congress, but being introduced by Donald Sussman is high among them,” Pelosi said.
“Where is he? Did he leave?” Pelosi asked before giggling on stage.
“That’s an applause line – Donald Sussman, by the way,” Pelosi said, imploring the crowd to clap.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Sussman was implicated in a “massive leak of information on foreign corporations used by the world’s wealthiest people to shield their assets.”
At the time of the leak, according to the WFB, Sussman had donated over $7 million to the effort to elect Hillary Clinton in the 2016 cycle.
