‘TAKE THE MONEY!’ How Clinton Campaign Sold Out To Lobbyists For Foreigners

How much more do we need to prove that Hillary Clinton and her campaign are all criminals with their grubby hands out for anything they can get in donations…Clinton’s Communications Director pushed for the campaign to take money from lobbyists of foreigners.
