Fournier: WH Officials Say They’re ‘Disgusted’ With Clinton Emails, Donation Disclosure

National Journal Senior Political Columnist and Editorial Director Ron Fournier said that White House officials tell him they’re “disgusted with the fact that Hillary Clinton violated their rules on donations — foreign donations, violated their rules on email,” but the White House is “complicit” in Clinton’s lack of transparency on Monday’s broadcast on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Fournier stated, “Look, the big — the single biggest issue we have in politics right now is the public doesn’t trust politicians, doesn’t trust government. And it’s incumbent on our leaders, whether they’re Democrats, Republicans, Independents, to make sure they earn that trust, and Hillary Clinton, for all her strengths, is really undermining the trust, not just in her but — and not just in the Democratic Party, but in politics in general. My view on all of these kind of stories is, you know, don’t presume guilt, don’t assume innocence, and follow the money. So, I would really like to know whether or not, and I don’t know, but I would love to know whether or not there’s in those emails, that we know we don’t have all of, that we know weren’t fully vetted, whether there’s any communications about the donors to the Clinton Foundation. And, you know, until we see — until we know there’s been an independent vetting of her server, we’re always going to wonder whether or not there was a blur.”

He added, “White House officials tell me too they’re disgusted with the fact that Hillary Clinton violated their rules on donations — foreign donations, violated their rules on email. Well, I haven’t heard the president rebuke her. I haven’t seen his State Department investigate this. So, I got to assume that the Obama White House is complicit in this lack of transparency and in this rule-breaking and whatever else might be going on that we don’t know about yet.”
