Bernie Sanders calls out Hillary Clinton’s conflict of interest over The Clinton Foundation

June 5, 2016

 When those of us on the right call out the conflict of interest between Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State and The Clinton Foundation the left leaps to her defense by claiming this is nothing but part of the vast right-wing conspiracy and is nothing more than her opponents trying to find an issue where there is none.

  That is to be expected and it is all very well and good but what will the left say now that one of their own–or perhaps more accurately, their darling Bernie Sanders–has waded into the controversy confirming what we have been saying?

  Here is what the upstart socialist Senator from Vermont had to say when asked about the potential conflict of interest:

“If you asked me about the Clinton Foundation, do I have a problem when a sitting secretary of state and a foundation run by her husband collects many millions of dollars from foreign governments, governments which are dictatorships … yeah I do,” Sanders said in an interview Sunday morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Sanders cited Saudi Arabia, a contributor to the foundation, which he notes restricts civil liberties. “You don’t have a lot of respect there for opposition points of view for gay rights or women’s rights,” he said.

Asked by host Jake Tapper whether that presents a conflict of interest for Clinton, he responded, “I do.”

  I guess that means Hillary Clinton and her supporters will claim this makes Bernie Sanders part of the vast right-wing conspiracy…

      Yeah, it looks like it will be all over after tonight but here is to hoping he will make good on his promise to fight all the way to the convention.

        They are planning for thousands to show up at the convention. Permits were given out for every single space the city owns for protests.
