Hillary under fire after Boeing gave her foundation $900,000 weeks after she made 'shameless pitch'

"During a Boeing shareholder meeting on Monday,a conservative activist accused the aircraft company's CEO of buying then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 'commercial advocacy' in Russia by making a $900,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation.
The money was earmarked for rebuilding schools in Haiti in the wake of a devastating 2010 earthquake.
But the contribution came just months after Mrs. Clinton traveled to Moscow where she made what she called a 'shameless pitch' to ask a newly formed state-owned airline 'to buy Boeing aircraft.' It's not clear whether there was a quid-pro-quo promise of the donation in exchange for Mrs. Clinton's cheerleading."

Why does it always come back to the foundation.

Also note that I realize that this was brought up by a conservative activist and that is fair to point out but that doesn't change the meat of the story.

"It's not clear whether there was a quid-pro-quo promise of the donation in exchange for Mrs. Clinton's cheerleading."

We can bet our lives there was.

6. Why does this garbage come out so late in the game?

What else is to come? I'm so sick of the 'too late to digest' news. This whole election makes me sick. I support Bernie because all the alternatives, in my opinion, reek of 'payola', ignorance or bias. Phooey!

PS, glad I'm not a 'r' and have to cope with that mess.
