HuffPo Senior Editor: Leaked Emails Confirm the ‘Worst Portraits of the Clintons’

vlcsnap-2016-10-17-10h44m50s335Senior political editor at the Huffington Post Sam Stein said Monday morning that the hacked Hillary Clinton campaign emails released by Wikileaks confirm all the worst suspicions about how the political power couple acted out of office.

The panel of MSNBC’s Morning Joe in particular took aim at an email showing that the Qatari government gave the Clinton Foundation $1 million as a “birthday present” to Bill Clinton, and wanted to meet him in person in return. “I call the $1 million gift club the second-tier friends,” Stein joked to loud laughter. “This is how I grade my friends.”

“As [Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin] said, this confirms sort of the worst portraits of the Clintons and how they operated out of office,” he continued. “and it raises obvious questions about why they were accepting this money.”

“You know, there were charitable purposes that went along with the Clinton Foundation, but of course it came with a conflict of interest,” Stein said.
