Scarborough Rips Clintons on Foundation: ‘This Is Sleazy and Everybody Knows It’s Sleazy’

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough reacted to a story published late Wednesday in The Washington Post that delves into the operation labeled “Bill Clinton, Inc.”

“The Washington Post article is absolutely fascinating on ‘Bill Clinton Inc.,'” Scarborough said. “Sixty-six million dollars to him personally and they’re bragging. They’re bragging at the memo that they can shake down the same corporations that they’re taking donation money for, that they can shake them down for $66 million for ‘Bill Clinton Inc.'”

“They’re bragging about using this foundation to make the Clintons hundreds of millions of dollars,” he added. “Shouldn’t the Attorney General for the state of New York launch an investigation? And at least shut down the foundation like they did with the Trump Foundation? Because there is so much more money involved here.”

Later in the segment, Scarborough acknowledged it was sleazy and that “everybody” knew it.

“This is sleazy and everybody knows it’s sleazy,” Scarborough said. “You’re trading in public service while somebody is secretary of state.”
