Myra Adams writes in National Review that the new documentary film “Clinton Cash,” based on Peter Schweizer’s bestselling book of the same name, removes all doubt that “the Clintons are greedy, corrupt, and morally reprehensible.”

In watching a review copy of the film, I was struck by the phrase, “follow the money,” which is woven like a thread throughout. Anyone who follows politics is familiar with that iconic phrase, but many may have forgotten that it was the creation of a Hollywood scriptwriter: It was popularized by the 1976 movie, All the President’s Men, itself a fictional adaptation of the famous book about how Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncovered the Watergate scandal.

To those who would uncover the truth about the Clinton Foundation, “follow the money” seems quaint advice, considering that billions of dollars were involved — making for a scandal ten-times the size of Watergate.

Back in February, Democrat pollster Pat Caddell proclaimed as much, arguing that the Clintons “were selling out the national interests of the United States directly to adversaries and others for money.” That assertion is the core of Clinton Cash, which makes clear that the “selling out” was actively facilitated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton while she held that esteemed title. The viewer is shown numerous examples of blatant pay-to-play schemes. These lucrative business deals illustrate the unofficial partnership between Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation. Every scheme is perpetrated to personally enrich the Clintons, their Foundation, or their high-powered cronies — in the name of “doing good” for the world’s poor, naturally.


Has our nation gone stark raving mad even considering allowing the Clintons back in the White House? Americans deserve the chance to see Clinton Cash and answer that question for themselves before November 8.
