Access to Secretary Clinton: State Department Stonewalled; Google News Ignores Story
The big story on Drudge's site on the evening of August 23 was this one: the records of Hillary Clinton's meetings as Secretary of State reveal that half of the non-government people she met with gave donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Here is what the Associated Press article announced:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money -- either personally or through companies or groups -- to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.
We also learn this:
The AP sought Clinton's calendar and schedules three years ago, but delays led the AP to sue the State Department last year in federal court for those materials and other records.
If this was not stonewalling, then perhaps it was a modified limited hang out.
I checked to see if Google News reported this story. It did not. I have prepared a short video on this. View it here:
