“Somebody is going to hell over this,” declared longtime Clinton associate James Carville, denouncing those who dared to criticize the Clinton Foundation.
He claimed his concern was because of all the “good” that the foundation has done, through its charitable contributions, saying if the Clinton Foundation is shut down, “people are going to die.”
“What the Clinton Foundation does, it takes money from rich people and gives it to poor people. Most people think that’s a pretty good idea,” Carville said.
Asked Tuesday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” if the Clinton Foundation should have stopped taking foreign donations before Clinton became secretary of state, Carville responded, “If you ask me as a political adviser, of course.”
“If you ask me as a human being, eh, I’m not too sure. As a human being I think the foundation does an enormous amount of good. From a strictly political standpoint, yeah,” Carville said. “Somebody is going to hell over this. Because somebody, now I’m not saying here—or somewhere is. This is saving people’s lives.”
Co-host Joe Scarborough did not take kindly to the sentiment.
“I wish I could say the word I want to say. I’ll just say that’s BS,” Scarborough remarked. “You know the fact is if it’s a great charity and it’s a five-star rated charity, guess what, other people can raise the money. It doesn’t have to be Bill Clinton calling somebody up making people think, if I give him money it could help me out. If it’s a great charity, it can stand on its own and other people can raise money for it. It’s not a zero-sum game. It’s not having Bill Clinton raise money while his wife is running for president or else we’re all going to hell and little kids are going to die across the planet.”
“They’re gonna,” Carville shot back. “The other thing is, Bill Clinton has more charm and people around the world have an enormous amount of faith in him. I’ve traveled with him. I’ve seen it myself. There are not many people that have the relationships and are held in the affection around the world as Bill Clinton.”
Judicial Watch just released another 725 additional pages of documents and emails Monday that reveal serious conflicts of interest where top executives with the Foundation and State Department executives worked together to arrange favors and meetings with Clinton and top donors during her term as Secretary of State.
