Yesterday on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC show she spoke with Chris Chilla on Hillary's Money trail problem with the expected cover.
ANDREA MITCHELL: Hillary Clinton wrapping up a week that started in New Hampshire and ended at Tina Brown's Women in the World. But ended also fending off attacks from the Benghazi Select Committee and that new book, Clinton Cash.- See more at:http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2015/04/24/msnbc-lot-holes-clinton-cash-hard-prove-without-e-mail-trail
Joining me now to sort it all out for our Daily Fix, Chris Cillizza, MSNBC contributor, founder of Washington Post's Fix blog, and New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters, right here.
Well, Chris Cillizza, it's been the week that was and Hillary Clinton had a tough time with the Cash book. But truth be told, having gone through it last night once we got the book yesterday, there are a lot of holes. There is the question of, how do you connect the policy that she was pursuing as a secretary of state with the allegation that money was being contributed to the charity or speeches were being booked for Bill Clinton that wouldn't have otherwise been booked? You know, the timing may be fortuitous or suspicious or coincidental, but you can't make that connection in a lot of cases.
CHRIS CILLIZZA: Proving a political prid – quid pro quo – it's hard to say, it's hard to prove, Andrea. It's just very difficult, because as you say, a donation coming in and the State Department saying something or Bill Clinton giving a speech or whatever it may be, unless you can prove in an e-mail, in a text, in a phone call that it was directly linked one to the other, it's just tough. My guess with the book is if you like Hillary Clinton, you're going to largely dismiss it. If you don't like Hillary Clinton, you're going to see lots of things in there that deserve more reporting. Like most things with Hillary Clinton, sort of, people divide along their preconceived opinions about her.
Well Andrea couldn't make a connection to truth if it bit her in the fanny. The laughable part is about the "email trail". I mean seriously?
One has to wonder why Hillary is running yet again when it would appear everything - age, scandals, Bill Clinton as first man, are against her.
Face it, the democrats thought they had found their messiah in Barack Obama only to have him to be a version of deceased mayor Marion Berry - without the crack (although a case could be made for that).
Obama has been a complete disaster for Democrats, his approval ratings still reasonable, but nevertheless the "thrill is gone" from the leg of Chris Matthews. So why Hillary, why now?
Well most of it is simply Clinton audacity and pride. After all she's still smarting from being chumped by Obama in 2008. I mean she was a shew in for the nomination until Obama came in from left field and stole the show.
Yeah she got a consolation prize in getting the SOS job, but look at the disaster that was. Democrats seem to be punting at this point, much like they did with John Kerry in 2004. What I mean is they would seem to allow the GOP to take the presidency so they can switch the house and senate back to them in the years to come. After all that's how much of this mess that Obama created started. Remember 2006?
It's done, We need more Colburns in the Party:
"Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) has made a deal with Senate Democrats to allow the 9/11 first responders bill to go forward to the House today, assuming it passes the Senate as expected. In exchange for Coburn’s agreement to forgo the usual debate period, the bill’s price tag will decrease from $6.2 billion to $4.2 billion. “I’m standing for us as America, the realization that we have to do things efficiently and economically,” Coburn told ABC’s Jonathan Karl. “We’ve worked out a deal now that spends a whole lot less money, accomplishes exactly the same thing, and does it in a way that protects our future. Every bill should have to go through that — and the fact that they don’t is a problem. That’s why we’re $14 trillion in debt.” “So I don’t mind taking the heat,” Coburn added, referring to the criticism about his opposition to the legislation. “You know, as a physician I care about those people. As a citizen, I care about the firefighters of my own city and every other city. The fact is you can still do it right. So you take all the heat, but you still it get done. So what we need is more people taking more heat so we get the right things done.” According to ABC, changes in the legislation include closing the Victims Compensation fund in five (instead of twenty) years, and setting caps on lawyers’ fees."More to come on this.
