I'm hearing a pained Senator Lugar on C-Span right now, trying to help Hillary sound more sensitive about the appearance of corruption--but she can't give a straight answer, just talking points and self-justification. Awful. Embarrassing. If the Senate consents to Hillary as Secretary of State, it looks like no end of problems in sight.
Hillary actually called the Clinton Global Initiative "a pass-through." She promised more "conflicts."
IMHO, grounds for her rejection. But I suppose no-one in the Senate is brave enough to stand up for what's right.
Poor Senator Lugar, apparently willing to sacrifice his reputation for honesty and sober judgement by running interference for the Clintons...
