Peter Schweizer author of Clinton Cash appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, and argued that Hillary Clinton exchanged favourable treatment from the U.S. State Department for multimillion dollar donations to the Clinton Foundation were unsubstantiated.
The most significant of the allegations center on a Russian company that was approved by the State Department to purchase a Canadian uranium company. Stephanopoulos pointed out that the State Department was one of nine agencies that signed off on the deal, and that “there’s no evidence at all that Hillary Clinton got directly involved at all in this decision.” (A smiliar argument was made by Clinton surrogate Lanny Davis over on Fox News Sunday.)
“There were nine different agencies who approved it,” Stephanopoulos said. “Doesn’t that suggest that that was because there was no national security concern, not because of some nefarious influence by Hillary Clinton?”
“We don’t have direct evidence,” Schweizer said. “But it warrants further investigation because, again, this is part of the broader pattern. You either have to come to the conclusion that these are all coincidences, or something else is afoot.”
