"Unprecedented Disclosure"

All of the Democrats supporting Hillary Clinton's confirmation to become Secretary of State have been crowing about the "unprecedented amount of disclosure" the Clintons volunteered about Mr. Clinton's international fundraising.

Of course, lots of Republicans bought that line, too. She was confirmed today 94-2. The only ones who voted against the appointment were GOP Sens. Jim DeMint and David Vitter.

But unprecedented amount of disclosure? Without any specific dates or amounts of money donated? Please.

The only unprecedented thing about this mess is the fact the husband of our next Secretary of States is so tangled up in international donor networks this is even a problem.

I suspect it will continue to be down the road, too.
