Rightwing Fired Up About "Clinton Cash" Book: Hoax & Hooey Crap

Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash and Backed by Koch Cash 

Give Schweizer a couple of butts to calm him down
(grabbed from ABC News - source unknown)

This headline from Think Progress kinda sets the tone:

Think Progress Report: “Schweizer Admits He Cannot Prove Allegations in Clinton Cash”

As they say, “No shit, Sherlock.” Or maybe like Gomer Pyle: “Surprise, surprise, surprise.”

Either way, Schweizer's own words pretty much say it all:

Schweizer makes clear that he does not intend to present a smoking gun, despite the media speculation. The book relies heavily on timing, stitching together the dates of donations to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton's speaking fees with actions by the State Department.  He explains that he cannot prove the allegations, leaving that up to investigative journalists and possibly law enforcement.” 

Schweizer: “Short of someone involved coming forward to give sworn testimony, we don't know what might or might not have been said in private conversations, the exact nature of the transition, or why people in power make the decision they do. We cannot ultimately know what goes on in their minds and ultimately provide the links between the money they took and the benefits that subsequently accrued to themselves, their friends, and their associates.”

Well, hell, case closed, then. Or maybe not - we outta maybe perhaps stay tuned. There might be rough roads ahead before November 2016, so caution is advised (smile).
