Halperin: ‘Bill Clinton, Doug Band, And Others Enriched Themselves’ ‘By Offering Access’ In Context of CGI

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Bloomberg Politics Managing Editor Mark Halperin stated, “if you’ve ever been to CGI, [the Clinton Global Initiative] you see business going on, and that Bill Clinton, Doug Band, and others enriched themselves by leveraging those relationships, and by offering access to people in the context of CGI.”

Halperin said, “There’s no question that, if you’ve ever been to CGI, you see business going on, and that Bill Clinton, Doug Band, and others enriched themselves by leveraging those relationships, and by offering access to people in the context of CGI.” Halperin continued that there was a “missing piece” of whether anyone got stuff from the government during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, but that we do know that some “got the ability to rub elbows with people in the Clinton orbit.”

He added that the Clinton Foundation “does do a lot of stuff that’s good around the world.”

Halperin later stated, “When she took the Secretary of State job, the Obama administration said, there are a lot of concerns here about this relationship. Let’s put some rules in place, and I think that a lot of this stuff we already know about, would not have been approved of, or looked kindly on by the White House or the State Department, in theory, the general counsel there, because it did not live up to the spirit, at a minimum, of trying to keep Hillary Clinton — the foundation’s activities from potentially creating a potential conflict with her formal governmental role.”
