The Founding Fathers weren’t professional politicians.
They admired the ancient Greek hero Cincinnatus, who was also George Washington’s role model: Once their time in elected office came to an end, men were expected to quietly return to humble civilian life.
What would they make of the Clinton Foundation, which has made former president Bill Clinton and his wife multi-millionaires, giving high prices “speeches” that can’t possibly be the only thing clients are getting for their money.
Of course, the mainstream media doesn’t care to investigate the Foundation. Instead, they’re focusing on one of Donald Trump’s enterprises, a business school called Trump University that’s being sued by some dissatisfied students.
Will they continue to do so, however, now that the American Spectator has brought this to light?
[T]he law firm Robbins Geller appointed by Judge Gonzalo Curiel to represent a plaintiff in the Trump University class action suits has another connection to Hillary Clinton beyond a $2700 campaign contribution from firm chairman Darren Robbins. LawNewz did not mention the firm’s connection to the Trump University case. The information was apparently retrieved from a Washington Post data base with the Clinton financial filings on file. (The Post itself has not reported on this connection.)
It seems that Robbins Geller “paid the Clintons nearly half a million dollars in less than a year.” Why? Speeches of course.
That’s right. One of the law firms picked by the Judge in the Trump University case — the very Judge Donald Trump accuses by name of anti-Trump bias — awarded this firm the case after — say again after — Hillary and Bill Clinton had been paid a cool $450,000 for two speeches by the firm.
The Spectator goes on to point out that many of the key players in the Trump University case have close ties to the Democratic Party.
As well, Judge Gonzalo Curiel has reportedly given his “leadership and support” to the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association — “La Raza” being Spanish for “The Race,” of course.
Kudos to the Spectator for turning over all these rocks. Now let’s see how much longer Trump University stays in the headlines.
