Incredulous reporter pushes State Dept. on why Hillary’s breach won’t be investigated

Despite the fact that the State Department acknowledges that Hillary Clinton breached her agreement with the White House to name all donors her family foundation received while she served as secretary of state, the agency will nonetheless not review or investigate the matter.

In addition to her promise to annually report all foundation donors, Clinton promised to allow the Department of State’s ethics office to review any proposed foreign donors for possible conflict of interest issues, according to Reuters.

The question is, if the State Department knows she violated the agreement she made in order to become secretary of state, why won’t it investigate further to determine if any of those donations had an effect on her official decision making?

That was Associated Press’ Matt Lee’s concerns also during Thursday’s press briefing.

State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said that there was no evidence that donations to the Clinton charities had any effect on Clinton’s decisions.

“We’re not going to make a retroactive review on these cases and we will not make a retroactive judgment,” he said.

Lee didn’t let him go unchallenged.

“The reason you are not aware of anything is because the building is refusing to go back and look at it to see if there is anything that might raise a flag,” he told Rathke.

The spokesman said the Clinton is no longer secretary of state and referred him to the Clinton campaign team for further inquiries.

This ploy has become all to familiar in the Obama administration. If a spokesman doesn’t want to answer a question, he refers the reporter to another source.

“It’s almost as if they had an agreement that they didn’t follow through on but since she is no longer the secretary of state you’re saying—well, that doesn’t apply anymore and so it just doesn’t matter,” Lee said.

Other reporters opined that the State Department’s decision was politically-motivated because Clinton is the Democratic front-runner for president.

“The fact of the matter is that they didn’t publish those donors so you don’t know,” Lee said.
