Here’s the front-page headline from Monday’s Washington Post:
Inside Bill Clinton’s nearly $18 million job as ‘honorary chancellor’ of a for-profit college
And here’s the first sentence of the fifth paragraph:
There is no evidence that Laureate received special favors from the State Department in direct exchange for hiring Bill Clinton….
And this from the 26th paragraph:
Clinton’s contract with Laureate was approved by the State Department’s ethics office….An ethics official wrote that he saw “no conflict of interest with Laureate or any of their partners,” according to a letter recently released by the conservative group Citizens United, which received it through a public-records request.
Roger that. I hope everyone will excuse me if I ignore this entire story until there’s even the slightest hint of some kind of wrongdoing or corruption.
