Wikileaks has been steadily exposing the deep-seated corruption of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton campaign. In a normal, healthy, properly-functioning society, the mainstream media would be very interested in covering such a trove of information.
Alas, we do not live in a healthy, properly-functioning society. We know from analysis that major networks dedicated all of 57 seconds combined to covering the Hillary Clinton revelations, and that trend followed suit Thursday when Wikileaks released one of the most damning emails yet.
The newly released email provides further evidence that the Clinton Foundation is indeed a pay-for-play operation. We learned that Hillary Clinton was given a $12 million donation from King Mohammed the VI of Morocco in exchange for simply having the chance to meet her.
$12 million for a simple meeting? We think not.
Media Research Center provides a breakdown of the big three networks’ disinterest in what would otherwise be considered a bombshell:
And yet the “Big Three” networks ABC, CBS, and NBC pretended like it didn’t even happen. “New scrutiny tonight on the Clinton Foundation coming from what were supposed to be private e-mails,” stated Fox News Anchor Bret Baier on Special Report, moving on to ask, “How much money and how much influence were on the table in dealings involving the Clinton family charity?”
Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry noted that Bill Clinton once received criticism for negotiating a $1 million contribution to the Clinton Foundation, but what Hillary was able to lure out of donor was much greater. “A WikiLeaks e-mail surfaced showing the candidate herself lined up a $12 million commitment from the King Mohammed the VI of Morocco,” Henry reported.
The $12 million revelation was discussed in an e-mail chain between Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, Campaign Manager Robby Mook, and Campaign Chairman, John Podesta. The three were frantic by how shady the donation would look as they approached the date Clinton would announce her candidacy for president, with Abedin spitting, ‘She created this mess and she knows it.'”
According to Henry’s report the huge donation was so that the King of Morocco would be able to have a meeting with Clinton. And in an e-mail send by Mook it was clear that Clinton was very persistent in wanting the donation.
“The condition upon which the Moroccans agreed to host the meeting was her participation. This was HRC’s idea. Our office approached the Moroccans and they 100 percent believe they are doing this at her request. The King has personally committed approximately $12 million.”
Yes, Huma, Clinton created this mess — and she won’t pay a price for it, either.
