First they tell us the book is all lies. Then they claim it’s old news. Then when none of that works they launch a website to “refute” the facts that threatet to drag Grandma’s campaign down. Now normally a candidate would make media appearances and saturate the Sunday shows, but since the old lady is afraid to face the media, her minions will launch a website attacking the messenger. Sure, this should work.
Hillary Clinton’s (D) presidential campaign is launching a website to counter the release of Clinton Cash, new book that raises questions about donations to the family’s foundation while she was secretary of State.
Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta announced the effort — dubbed “The Briefing” — in apost to the publishing platform Medium.
Podesta linked the site to the release of “Clinton Cash,” a book that raises questions about the Clinton family’s finances but that critics say is a partisan strike against Clinton’s campaign.
“While we will not be consumed by these kinds of attacks, we will also not let them go unchallenged,” Podesta said. “That’s why we are building a new one-stop shop to provide the facts about Hillary Clinton’s positions and her record.”
“You will be able to find information and it will serve as a hub that allows Hillary for America to cut through the partisan noise over the next 18 months and directly communicate with voters,” he said.
As noted, candidates typically appeal to the voters through interviews and television appearances. But Grandma’s above all that. Here’s a snippet from this absurd website.
That book, titled Clinton Cash, is written by a Republican operative-turned-blogger. Before even hitting the bookshelves, it has been discredited far and wide by observers on both the left and the right. The book has zero evidence to back up its outlandish claims; a Fox News interviewer sharply questioned the author on this point, noting “the advance publicity … oversold what you actually had.”
Even worse than the book’s lack of evidence is its rash of errors. ABC News documented several, causing the author to admit his mistakes and say he would plan to issue corrections.
Of course they provide no links for these alleged errors. Meanwhile, the Clintons are refiling taxes after being exposed as tax cheats in the book. But it’s full of errors, or something.
So, while Clinton Cash has already been debunked, we are clear-eyed about the fact that this will not be the last false set of allegations flung our way. We will stand ready to fight for a better future for everyday Americans and to swat back these unfair attacks from those invested in protecting a status quo that is stacked in favor of those at the top.
It’s been debunked? That’s news to the world. Anyway, these clowns should bring it on. It’ll be crushed by massive ridicule, just like the ill-fated Obama Attack Watch.
