Over the weekend Peter Schweizer, author of the new book Clinton Cash, sat down for a series of interviews about allegations Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations and expensive speaking fees during her time as Secretary of State.
In an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, who used to work inside the Bill Clinton White House and who regularly speaks to Rahm Emanuel and James Carville about strategy, Schweizer cited former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez as doing similar things to the Clintons and faced prosecution.
"When you ever have an issue of the flow of funds to political candidates, whether that's to their campaigns, whether that's to private foundations, whether that's to their spouse, is there evidence of a pattern of favorable decisions being made by those individuals and I think the point that we make in the book is that there is a troubling pattern. There are dozens of examples of that occurring. Some people, I think in particular the Clinton camp, might say these are all coincidence. I don't think when you're talking about 12 instances you're talking coincidence, I think you're talking trend," Schweizer said. "If you look at a couple of recent examples, for example Governor McDonnell down in Virginia or you look at Senator Menendez, in these cases you didn't have evidence of a quid pro quo, what you had was funds flowing to elected officials, some of them gifts, some of them campaign contributions, and actions that were being taken by those public officials that seemed to benefit the contributors. Certainly I think it [Clintons] warrants investigation...The evidence here is far more wide spread in terms of repeated action."
Naturally Stephanopoulos, a strong Clinton ally, said ABC News hasn't found any "direct" proof to show Clinton traded political favor for donations. It's too bad Clinton erased 50,000 emails from her personal server.
Schweizer also sat down on Fox News Sunday to talk about the book.
This isn't over.
