BREITBART — Clinton Cash author and Breitbart News senior editor Peter Schweizer addressed the criticism that his book plays a “guilt by association” game with the Clintons on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon.
“I didn’t have access to Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails,” he noted, looking back to a previous interview with Shepherd Smith of Fox News. “I don’t have a document that says, ‘We’ll give you money, and I’ll do this in return.’ What, clearly, the book shows is that the flow of money — particularly the flow of foreign funds — dramatically affected Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.”
“It is about ‘follow the money.’ That’s the greatest route in American politics, right? If you want to find out why a politician is doing something, don’t look at what they say. Look at what they do,” he advised.
Bannon agreed that “follow the money” has been a reliable strategy for uncovering many previous political scandals, ranging from Watergate and Abscam to Iran-Contra. It’s a methodology the media seems eager to employ with everyone except powerful Democratic politicians, especially the Clintons.
