Buchanan: Clintons’ ‘Buck-Raking’ Is ‘Sleaze’

Columnist Pat Buchanan denounced the Clintons’ speaking fees as “sleaze” and “buck-raking” on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group”

Buchanan said of the Clintons’ speaking fees, “it may not be illegal, but this is sleaze. This is classic liberalism, come to town to do good and do very well indeed. A few years back, they had — they were checking out columnists and commentators where they were getting 5,000 or 10,000 a speech and they denounced it as buck-raking. What do you think this is? This is the biggest example buck-raking I’ve ever seen — $100 million.”

He added, “Bill is cashing in on the presidency of the United States.”
