HuffPo’s Stein: Clinton Foundation ‘Definitely’ Needs To Be Shut Down, It Did Influence Foreign Policy Because Donors Got Access
On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Huffington Post Senior Politics Editor Sam Stein stated that the Clinton Foundation “definitely” needs to be shut down or transferred to another foundation because there’s too much “ethical murkiness” and that the foundation did influence US foreign policy because donors to it gained access.
Stein said, “[T]hey definitely need to shut this thing down or transfer it to the — to some other foundation. … I mean, can you imagine, the people she’s going to have to meet with as president, assuming she wins, it’ just going overlap constantly. We’ll have stories like this nonstop. There’s too much ethical murkiness here.”
Later in the segment, co-host Willie Geist said that the Clinton campaign would respond to criticisms of the foundation by saying, “If you can show me where a donation to the Clinton Foundation influenced the United States foreign policy, go ahead.”
Stein responded, “But it did because it gained these people access.”
