Paul: ‘Clinton Cash’ Allegations ‘Unseemly,’ ‘Real Sense of Impropriety’

On Tuesday’s “America’s Newsroom” on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted to the allegations that have surfaced in recent days said to be included in the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash” that the Clinton Foundation took money from foreign government while Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.

Paul quipped about all the controversies Clinton was facing, including Benghazi, her deleted emails and now these allegations. He told host Bill Hemmer he viewed it as improper on constitutional and legal grounds.

“It’s unseemly,” Paul said. “The Constitution specifically says you can’t take gifts from foreign governments. Is it somehow skirting or going around the law to accept them through your foundation? I think it is and it has a real sense of impropriety and it needs to stop.”
