Watergate's Bob Woodward: "Clinton Foundation Is Corrupt, It's A Scandal"

Tyler Durden's picture

It's one thing for the right-wing press to accuse the Clinton foundation of cronyism, corruption, and scandal (especially if the facts, and internal admissions by affiliated employees, confirm as much) - it tends to be generally ignored by the broader, if left-leaning, media. But when the Watergate scandal's Bob Woodward, associate editor at the liberal Washington Post, says very much the same, Hillary Clinton's campaign has no choice but to notice. This is precisely what happened today when journalist Bob Woodward told a Fox News Sunday panel that the Clinton Foundation is "corrupt" and that Hillary Clinton has not answered for it.

Here, courtesy of RealClearPolitics, is the transcript of today's exchange:

CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Then there are the allegations about the Clinton Foundation and pay to play, which I asked Secretary Clinton about in the debate, and she turned into an attack on the Trump Foundation.


But, Bob, I want to go back to the conversation I was having with Robby Mook before. When -- when you see what seems to be clear evidence that Clinton Foundation donors were being treated differently than non-donors in terms of access, when you see this new -- new revelations about the $12 million deal between Hillary Clinton, the foundation, and the king of Morocco, are voters right to be troubled by this?


BOB WOODWARD, THE WASHINGTON POST: I -- yes, it's a -- it’s corrupt. It's -- it’s a scandal. And she didn't answer your question at all. And she turned to embrace the good work that the Clinton Foundation has done. And she has a case there. But the mixing of speech fees, the Clinton Foundation, and actions by the State Department, which she ran, are all intertwined and it's corrupt. You know, I mean, you can't just say it's unsavory. But there's no formal investigation going on now, and there are outs that they have.


But the election isn't going to be decided on that. I mean Karl was making the point about this, I'm not going to observe the result of the election. I mean that's -- that’s absurd. I mean it has no consequence. If Trump loses, they're not going to let him in the White House. He’s not going to have a transition team. And -- and to focus on that, I think, is wrong. I think the issue is, what's going to be the aftermath of this campaign.

So it's corrupt, it's a scandal, and... it will have no consequences at all. It's time to look up the latest definition of Banana republic again.

Woodward: Washington Post Assigns 20 Reporters to Dig Into Trump's Past

How many reporters did they put onto the Clinton Crime Family?

This is one of those moments where you realize (again) that everything you thought you knew was a lie.  I remember thinking Woodward and Bernstein were champions of liberty.  Turns out they were champions of tyranny.

It seems only a few of us are having those moments, sadly.

Congrats, Bob, you are now a member of a club you never wanted to join.

You are so fucked, Bob.  And so well deserving of being fucked.  Say hi to Julian for us at the Ecuadorian Embassy.

You just fucked with the wrong family, Bobby Boy.  You better pray to God she loses because you're a man without a country if she doesn't.  NOBODY wants you around.

Cock sucker is just trying to avoid a lamp post.  Another related topic, WSJ covering Podesta stock ownership in Kremlin backed uranium company.  I bet the cocksucker got his laptop hacked when he was over fucking the US tax payer in Moscow. Stupid fuck probably did get hacked gettin rich quick.  I hope he and hillary share a cell they deserve each other.

Drudge showed the Marxist background of Obama and yet he was elected twice.


Drudge is showing the eyes of a psychopath and yet she was selected as the Democratic candidate for president.


No lessons learned.

All this shit is beyond corrupt and into flat-out EVIL.

Nobody with ANY brains remotely believes the system is valid.

Sad, sad, sad.

Let's just hope the swamp drainer gets the contract...

If Hillary wins and the people still don't take to the street by the millions to protest, it means there's really no hope for humanity.

fbazzrea's picture

there will be hope for humanity, just not America--as we know and love.

BUT... it ain't happening.

Trump 2016!!!

Ah, but you forgot what mess Hillary has created elsewhere and would continue doing so given the chance.

This will never be over from now on.  Every single corrupt elitist mouthpiece has shit their pants.  If you couldn't smell the shit in HilLiary's depends before, you can't avoid it now.

Thanks to Trump we all know straight up its Them or US. No middle ground. You are either on the Take or you are not on the Take.

Looks like lamp posts for the pair of them, given how utterly complicit they both are.

 To informed analysts, the Clinton Foundation appears to be a rogue charity that hasneither been organized nor operated lawfully from inception in October 1997 todate--as you will grow to realize, it is a case study in international charity fraud, ofmammoth proportions."

Lynch and Comey need to be arrested for the cover up of the Clinton crimes.

I agree, but I believe that if Trump wins, there is a better probability that the Hillary pukes will take to the streets proclaiming that Russia rigged the election. 

It's about to get real.

Tarzan's picture

Oh they will, and get payed for their bus trips too.

Even if Trump manages to squeak through their firewall, the collapse is still coming.  Math is stubborn like that. 

I can't find a link to it, yet.  But Duterte, speaking in China, let out a secret, that America is behind on it's payments to China for it's 1.8 Trilllllllllllllion dollars.  Now there is no mention of it anywhere that I can find.

This is why soldiers are being ordered to repay their signing bonuses, We're flat broke, and behind on our sovereign debts. 

It is the true reason we're going to war, an attempt to hide our default!

RiverRoad's picture

War always covers a multitude of sins especially the bankers'.

Bob Woodward, admitting that a banana republic-style justice system is Hillarys best defense because it really is a criminal act to use your public office for personal benefit & enrichment.

But we must respect the will of dead people stuffing ballot boxes at all costs!

lol...I swear to God it just doesn't get any better.

I've always heard Woodward was a CIA mouthpiece at WAPO, as are many other Post reporters.  Funny, that faction should want to damage Hitlery at this point. 

FlowerofLife's picture

Because it's becoming clear that Hillary is going down, and people are starting to distance themselves from her while they think there's still a chance.

Which I could give you 1000 up votes for that link.  I signed it.  Need to distribute widely.

Whiskey Badger's picture

Well I signed the petition.  I was probably already on a watchlist but if I wasn't I am now.  See you at the FEMA camps buddy.

Tarzan's picture

I signed it too.  I'm sure it puts us on a list somewhere, but frankly I don't give a shit anymore.  I used to fear replrisal.  I've shed those fears.  The freaking country is burning around us and most are still shouting from behind a bush. 

To hell with that, these pukes running things need us front and center in their face!  Shout it from the roof tops!

Hillary is not just a criminal, she's worse then your thinking, She's in bed with Satan and intends to start WWIII.  Even if Trump manages to overcome all the corruption against him, we're still doomed as a Country.  Collapse is coming, bank on it!

When they come to get you, Tell the Bastards that Bobby McKay said FUCK YOU!

We should attack the media everywhere they go like BLM did.

Make it so they can't go out and cover events, lock them in the tower.

They made this possible.

The Veritas video ends her, yet no one has seen it due to their censoring.

Attack Twitter and facebook too.

That should be #1.

Is the transcript at the link below in the Show More section what you speak of?



The following was taken from the transcript above, Hillary said: " If that f - - - ing bastard wins, we all hang from nooses!". If that is true, one can only hope that it will be the most accurate statement she has made this election cycle.

Perhaps Clinton and her crowd will hang from nooses?  From the horse's mouth.........no one knows better than she does.

Obama's Chicago mentor: Zbigniew Brzezinski, member, CFR and Bilderberg; co-founder of Trilateral Commission alongside David Rockefeller.

Obama was prepared for NWO by one of its principle architects.

Clintons, Bushes, all part of the club.

Brzezinski tutored him at Columbia privately.

Told him to go to Pakistan, got him ready to be his puppet.

Obama even said he was his mentor when he was there.

This is the Bush dynasty, since he got Reagan shot.

Everyone since that has been his pick.

Bill Clinton " George HW Bush is the father I never had, and I don't care how many Democrats don't like that. I love him."

What Woodward is saying is that even if Hillary is elected, impeachment proceedings will occur almost immediately. Where is congress and more importantly the FBI on this? 

matermaker's picture

I believe you are correct. If Clinton were to win, there has been so much truthiness come out that the damage has already been done.  George Carlin must be giggling somewhere.  In very rural towns of 5k or so I at saw at least some Bernie signs.  There are about a million or so people living around Northwest Arkansas/Walmart HQ.  I've not seen a single Hillary sign.  Not a one.  Even though I know quite a few poor souls will still vote for her.

I first started thinking that this was akin to the 1860 election.  However, this is truly different.  In 1860, Lincoln won mostly on a lark and the fact there were something like half a dozen candidates on the ticket.  The differences of 'opinion' were drawn mostly on geographical and geopolitcal lines.  If Trump looses, he's not going away.  What's come out isn't going away.  People literally being sick at what has become of what's left of television type news, sick of the political process and sick of how things are aren't going away.  In the very least, there will be a mighty third party established.

Where the political class.. the high priests fucked up is they failed to produce a proper enemy.  At the last minute they are attempting to make one out of Russia[after ISIL and terrorism failed to raise folks to muster].  Doesn't seem to be a Bernays among them.

It strikes me as if Trump has a better grasp on how to manipulate the masses.  ...The common psyche.    Come November 9, people will still be just as pissed off.  No matter who wins. I think this is partly because he is already sharpening his message that we need to be pissed off at the politcal class, the banking class..  the 'elites'.  History is constant with this scenario.  The little people rise up and throw off their chains.

Study your history.  You can only motivate the masses to quit infighting and/or questioning you when you give them a common enemy.  That's not the case this time.  Most aren't blaming the Jews[yes I know it's ZH] nor the Catholics or Protostents. It's not the Commies that are out to get and conquer us.  As a matter of fact, nobody is trying to conquer the US.  No truly organized nation state has come out and declared us their enemy.  The dichotomy of amity enemy has broken down as the two parties/sides have been shown as one, domesticly.

This is how Trump has already broken the system, won,  and why it matters not at this point who wins a silly election.  Power comes from the barrel of a gun.  It came from steel before lead.  However, you can't sit long on a throne made of swords.

Those in charge have been caught off gaurd.  They're not as good as so many of you give them credit for.  When this election circus is past, people will still be pissed and we so did the Russians for an entire generation, already.  I'm quite skeptical Oceanania can Make Eurasia strike even with the coveted false flag.  After all, there is another truth of history.  The next war is never fought with the same weapons as the last war.  I don't think it will be a nuclear thing.  We have had 70 years to think about that scenario.

No.  I think the preistly class is scared shitless at where they find themselves. ...Even to the point of sacrificing rooks and bishops like the MSM.  Unless there really is an alien invasion it's too late to point the finger at anyone else.

horseman's picture

I  drove from Spokane Wa to Lancaster Ca via us 95 last week.   Saw a bunch of Trump signs but not the usual every where you look like in past elections.  Saw one Hillary sign in Bishop and one Hillary bumper sticker in Lancaster.  People are really laying low this election.

So what does Woodward know and when did he know it?

"yet she was selected" --- I don't see it that way. There was no other choice, intentionally so.

O'Malley was recruited window-dressing and Bernie was her toy. She played him like a fiddle (he's stupid and was above his pay grade). And how about her magically winning ALL of those stupid coin tosses in the primaries in Midwestern states.

It's rigged in far more ways than Trump even means.

Marxists and psychopaths often give more and better free shit. Since stealing from honest productive neighbors is the essence of Marxism, and so much easier than working for a living, especially if you have no conscience, the two pathologies seem to be one and the same.

there's a great book out, Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer, explaining the whole Clinton cronies uranium deal with Russia, plus Haiti, Saudi Arabia, Iran...

i haven't received my copy yet from Amazon but I did receive the graphic novel version by Chuck Dixon w/ Brett R. Smith. 

scandalously criminal--five stars! sure to be collectible!!

Check out the 1 hour film of that book over at Breitbart.com.  It's good.

"It seems only a few of us are having those moments, sadly."

I disagree, many people are catching on.  Look at the 180 Hillary was forced to pull on her TPP.   That is because the people learned.  That's an example progress.  I think she'll still try to pass it if elected, of course, but the people are catching on and they are feeling it.

They are not champions of liberty, they are champions of ideology. Ultimately the only liberty for which they have concern, is their own.
