- August 16, 2016

The Washington Post Editorial Headline: "A Pourous Ethical Wall Between The Clinton Foundation And The State Department" (Editorial Board, A Pourous Ethical Wall Between The Clinton Foundation And The State Department," The Washington Post , 8/14/16)

  • The Washington Post : "The Latest Unearthed Emails From The Clinton State Department Nevertheless Reveal That The Ethical Wall She Was Supposed To Have Built Between Herself And Her Family's Organization Was Not Impermeable Enough." "Though it is an exaggeration to claim that Ms. Clinton ran her agency as a pay-to-play operation, the latest unearthed emails from the Clinton State Department nevertheless reveal that the ethical wall she was supposed to have built between herself and her family's organization was not impermeable enough." (Editorial Board, A Pourous Ethical Wall Between The Clinton Foundation And The State Department," The Washington Post , 8/14/16)
  • The Washington Post : "Should Ms. Clinton Win In November, She Will Bring To The Oval Office A Web Of Connections And Potential Conflicts Of Interest, Developed Over Decades In Private, Public And, In The Case Of Her Family's Philanthropic Work, Quasi-Public Activities."

The latest new-old news comes in the release by Judicial Watch of 44 emails from her personal server that Mrs. Clinton failed to turn over in the batch she told the State Department included everything that was work-related. The emails paint a picture of top Clinton aides at State eager to do favors for Clinton Foundation donors." (Editorial Board, "Hillary's Latest 'Old News,'" The Wall Street Journal, 8/10/16)
  • The Wall Street Journal : "Does Anyone Think Mr. Chagoury Would Get A Meeting With A Senior State Department Official If Mrs. Clinton Wasn't Secretary Or He Hadn't Given To The Clinton Foundation?" "Does anyone think Mr. Chagoury would get a meeting with a senior State Department official if Mrs. Clinton wasn't Secretary, or if he hadn't given to the Clinton Foundation? This is another example of the Clinton business model of using political influence to get rich and further advance their political careers." (Editorial Board, "Hillary's Latest 'Old News,'" The Wall Street Journal, 8/10/16)

The Chicago Tribune Editorial Headline: "Conflict Of Interest Was Obvious" (Editorial Board, "Conflict Of Interest Was Obvious," The Chicago Tribune , 8/16/16)

  • The Chicago Tribune : "What We Have Is A Foundation Official Pushing For Access On Behalf Of A Donor, And A Top State Aide Who Should Say 'Buzz Off' Instead Offering To Help."

  • The Albuquerque Journal : "This Latest Dump Makes It Clear Some Of Those Deleted Emails Dealt With Matters Completely Unrelated To Innocuous Topics Like Yoga Pants Or Her Daughter's Wedding." "It's no wonder Clinton had her attorneys delete and remove all traces of some 30,000 other emails. This latest dump makes it clear some of those deleted emails dealt with matters completely unrelated to innocuous topics like yoga pants or her daughter's wedding." (Editorial Board, "New Clinton Emails Show Quid Pro Quo Alive And Well," The Albuquerque Journal, 8/15/16)

While most of the media has been preoccupied with hammering the easy target presented by Donald Trump, a few reporters have remembered that there's a second candidate in this race who merits scrutiny, and have been uncovering some concerning conflicts." (Editorial Board, "Questions Remain About Clinton Conflicts," The Detroit News , 8/13/16)
  • The Detroit News : "Clinton Should At Least Be Asked Tough Questions About The Cozy Relationship Between Her State Department And Her Family's Foundation…And She Shouldn't Be Allowed To Get Away With Brushing Them Off As A Right Wing Hatchet Job." "Clinton should at least be asked tough questions about the cozy relationship between her State Department and her family's foundation on the campaign trail and in upcoming presidential debates.
