Well, what would we do without HuffPo?
Twitchy alerted me to this.
Well, Schweizer never said he did brief Dim on the content of the book.
The author of an upcoming book examining foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation admitted on Sunday that he has informed congressional Republicans about the book’s contents, but has not, to date, discussed the contents with congressional Democrats.
The book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, suggests that the Clintons traded political favors for donations during Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state. The Clinton camp has tried to discredit the book as a partisan attack, in part by casting doubt on the credibility of its author, Peter Schweizer, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush.
While The New York Times reported earlier this week that Schweizer had briefed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the book, Democrats on the committee told The Huffington Post that they had not met with Schweizer. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the committee’s chairman, also told HuffPost that he had discussed the book with Schweizer, but that the committee had not received a formal briefing.
During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Schweizer confirmed that he had not met with Democrats on the committee. He offered on Sunday to do so before the book is released next week.
Schweizer denied that his book is partisan.
“I went to the investigative unit at The New York Times, the investigative unit here at ABC. I went to the investigative unit at The Washington Post. And I shared with them my findings,” Schweizer said. “These are not cupcakes. These are serious researchers and investigators. And they are confirming what I’ve reported.” …..
As pointed out in the Twitchy post, why would he brief Dims? Dims would do exactly what HuffPo is doing ….. casting shade on the messenger, because they hate the message.
What I found more depressingly interesting was the comments on the HuffPo piece. I would highlight some of the more ignorant comments, but, they’re mostly the same. Attack the messenger, deny the message, and deflect to some idiocy about the Repubs or the Koch brothers ….
Yes, I’m still keeping up, just not writing. Rumor has it that I might get a day off this weekend!
