WaPo‘s Ruth Marcus: Clintons’ ‘Sloppiness and Greed’ Are ‘Inexcusable’

Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus said on Sunday morning that the Clinton Foundation’s controversial donations amount to “sloppiness and greed” on the part of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and are “simply inexcusable.”

While she acknowledged that there has been no evidence thus far that Clinton’s government actions were influenced by “quid pro quo” donations to the foundation, Marcus said it’s an “inherent” problem that Bill Clinton is raising money for good causes while his wife is Secretary of State or a presidential candidate.

The “sloppiness” on the part of the Clinton Foundation, Marcus said, describes the failure to report donations or submit correct tax returns — for which the Clinton Foundation apologized on Sunday morning — and the “greed” refers to accepting donations from “particularly questionable people.” These are, according to Marcus, “simply inexcusable.”

Elsewhere on the Sunday shows, Newt Gingrich said on This Week that anyone other than Clinton would be indicted for the foreign donations, while Mark Halperin agreed, saying an assistant secretary of state would have been fired for similar practices.
