    Giuliani: 'Nixon did a lot of bad things, but it wasn't raking in millions and millions of dollars through phony charity'

    A commentator on Wednesday suggested that the real solution to the “pay for play” scandal involving Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation would have been to shut down the non-profit in 2009, when she became secretary of state.

    Too late.

    Now, with Clinton campaign staff on the defensive, New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is forecasting it will end up being one of the biggest political scandals in America.

    Ever.

    “I am more than willing to predict, when the history of our day is written, the scandal you are watching unfold is going to be like the Teapot Dome scandal in the 1920s and maybe bigger. It’s going to be bigger than Watergate,” he said at a campaign rally for GOP nominee Donald Trump in Tampa, Florida.

    “Nixon had to leave office, and he did a lot of bad things, but it wasn’t raking in millions and millions of dollars through a phony charity,” he said. “I’m not sure how much money was involved in the Teapot Dome, but I bet it could not have been much more than the hundreds of millions of dollars the Clintons have been getting and turning the State Department into a pay-for-play operation.”

    The Daily Caller reported Giuliani was “outraged” at the “numerous, numerous serious federal felonies” Clinton committed.

    Now more than ever, Bill and Hill are “Partners in Crime.” Jerome Corsi reveals “The Clintons’ scheme to monetize the White House for personal profit.”

    It was John Cassidy in the New Yorker who suggested the closure should have happened eight years ago.

    “It’s getting hard to keep track of all the developments in the story of the Clinton Foundation and Clinton emails,” he wrote.

    But he cited an opinion from the Boston Globe regarding the controversy.

    “Even if they’ve done nothing illegal, the foundation will always look too much like a conflict of interest for comfort,” the paper said.



    And the progressive Huffington Post ran a headline on its homepage that blared “JUST SHUT IT DOWN,” as WND reported.

    “At this stage, many Democrats (including, I’d guess, some members of the Clinton campaign) just want the Clinton Foundation to go away. But that won’t happen. … A strong argument can be made that the Clinton Foundation should have been closed, or at least thoroughly overhauled, before Clinton became secretary of state, at the start of 2009. But to shut down the foundation now, when it is under severe attack, would only give credence to Trump’s claims that it was never more than a corrupt scheme to enrich its founders and their cronies,” he wrote.

    In a commentary at Fox News, Newt Gingrich, who was speaker of the U.S. House from 1995 to 1999, suggested correcting that error now.

    He pointed out that’s not just his opinion, but also that of former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who also was the Democratic National Committee chief.

    “I definitely think if she wins the presidency they have to disband it,” Rendell said.

    Gingrich said the same sentiment is coming from the San Diego Union-Tribune, which said, “These special interests are not giving money because the foundation is such an effective charitable organization; a 2013 New York Times investigation made it seem chaotic. They are not paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to hear shopworn speeches because they expect to obtain profound insights. They want the Clintons’ help, and they’re willing to pay for it.”

    Gingrich cited the “appearance of corruption, the obvious and inevitable conflicts of interests, and the unseemly arrangements” that have surrounded the foundation.

    “The Clintons didn’t care. They repeatedly violated their ethics agreement with the Obama administration to disclose and seek approval for foreign donors and speech clients,” he said. “Now they are making similar promise to the American people in order to ease Hillary’s path to the presidency. But just as the Obama administration was foolish to take them at their word, so would be the American people today.”

    The “only acceptable action,” he concluded, is for the foundation to be shut down “right now.”

    Clinton late Wednesday called in to Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN, Real Clear Politics reported, to admit there was a controversy about the foundation.

    The ALL have phony charities. That includes Giuliani. Lawmakers gave themselves a really sweet deal with that. They start a phony charity that gives a very small percentage of what they rake in to any cause. Instead of bribes, people donate to their charities. There's no law about how much charity executives make or who runs them. The politician simply has their family members rake in big bucks to run them. Then they'll have "fundraisers" which are really just elaborate parties and vacations. It's disgusting what's going on there.

    He's a turd. I think it's funny that right wing news outlets still use him as some sort of go-to. He failed miserably in his attempt to run for president.

    Followed by the words "daily caller"

    Tucker Carlson has been the chief Hillary whiner for over a decade.

    Hey, I'm just passing along what your heroes at the NY Post are saying. And, as conservative heroes Glenn Beck and Alex Jones would say, "I'm just asking questions. Isn't that ok? Isn't this America, where I still have freedom, or not?"

    But I suppose only Palinists and Trumpites are allowed to "just ask questions", judging by Shed Politics logic.

    Hillary Clinton might be corrupt--I can admit that and still vote for her. It's not like she invented corruption in politics. No politician is 100% pure of heart. To maintain that kind of expectation is insane.

    Who do we, as American people, trust more? The guy who made NYC a livable city or a woman who survived under brutal sniper fire in Yugoslavia?

    I'm always shocked when someone who can write a complete sentence, stands upright, and doesn't throw their feces, can vote for hillary. Just curious, how far off that 100% pure of heart do you think she is?o_O
