Fox News’ Chris Wallace Crushes Author Trying to Slander Hillary Clinton: You Have ‘No Hard Evidence’ (Video)

chris-wallace-clinton-cashBefore it’s all said and done, Hillary Clinton is going to go down as one of the most scrutinized presidential candidates in American history. And it’s not because she’s some shady, deceitful character who “has a lot of baggage” as many conservatives claim, it’s because she’s a polarizing figure who can make many of those in and around the media a whole lot of money.


Couple that with the fact that Republicans are absolutely terrified of her, and you have the perfect storm.

On most conservative websites and blogs her name draws as much, if not more, attention than President Obama’s. Heck, even on far-left leaning liberal websites (those who actually believe Elizabeth Warren is running or that Bernie Sanders stands a chance at becoming president), any mention of something relating to her I can assure you gets more “clicks” than the average article.

The bottom line is, finding any and every reason to try to criticize and scrutinize Hillary for the next year and a half is going to be extremely profitable for many people. So, naturally, that’s what a lot of people are going to do – even if most of what they’re saying is based on pure bullcrap.

Take for instance conservative author Peter Schweizer who came out with a book called Clinton Cash that tries to link speaking fees paid to Bill Clinton to policies supported by Hillary while she served as secretary of state.

There’s just one problem – he has absolutely no evidence to support key accusations made in his book. It’s just based on partisan assumptions from someone who clearly had an agenda when writing it.

That’s a fact that Chris Wallace slammed him with on Fox News Sunday morning.

After Schweizer insisted that Hillary Clinton approved a deal that allowed the Russian government to control some U.S. uranium mines, Wallace pointed out the fact that the proposal he was referencing was, in fact, approved by nine separate agencies – not Hillary Clinton.

“It’s not just the State Department,” Wallace said. “It’s nine separate agencies. There is no hard evidence, and you don’t cite any in the book, that Hillary Clinton took direct action, was involved in any way in approving, as one nine agencies, the sale of the company.”

“You don’t have a single piece of evidence that she was involved in this deal, that she sent a memo to the State Department person that was on this committee and said, ‘Hey, we want to approve the uranium sale,’” he continued.


You know you’re full of crap when you’re a conservative author of a book meant to do nothing more than slander Hillary Clinton, at a time when practically everyone on the right is trying to bring her down, and even somebody on Fox News is calling you out.

“I am a journalist,” Schweizer insisted. “I don’t have access to government records. I certainly don’t have access to her emails, which it doesn’t seem like anybody does. But the fundamental question is, with this deal and with the others we cite in the book, is it coincidence in a pattern that we see repeated dozens of times where large Clinton supporters have business before the State Department, they make large payments and favorable actions are taken?”

In other words, despite the fact that he has no evidence to support key accusations he makes in the book, as Wallace pointed out, he just went ahead and guessed what happened.

But this is what we can expect for the next 18 months or so from the conservative media, a seemingly endless stream of anti-Hillary Clinton propaganda. Because they know it doesn’t matter if any of it is real, they’re just trying to creation the irrational conclusion that “there’s just something Americans shouldn’t trust about her.”

Hopefully most Americans won’t be stupid enough to fall for it.

    When it comes to how money has taken precedence in politics there are more burning questions in need of answers about how it is used by so many instead of hitting a dead horse

    • Creeayshun Sighuntist

      you can thank Citizens United and the conservative supreme court for the amount of money being pumped into our politcal system.

  • Clintoris

    No the hard evidence was deleted along with the rest of her emails.

    • strayaway

      Hillary is in so deep with Goldman Sachs and the those who invested in her foundation or the Clintons’ speeches that it is more prudent to suggest that the emperor has no clothes than to deny the mountain of circumstantial evidence suggesting improprieties. What we are dealing with is the difference between her admitting guilt or actually being filmed with all the documented coincidental deals.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        you might want to loosen your tinfoil hat a bit as it seems like you are restricting blood flow to your brain at this point

      • strayaway

        You might want to have some facts at your disposal when you want to be an apologist for your corporatist super heroine. You might begin by explaining Frank Giusta’s $31.1M contribution to Hillary’s foundation. You know, the fellow made his donation to the Clinton Foundation after a 2005 uranium-mine deal he made in Kazakhstan, with former President Clinton at his side. More coincidence right? Or you could help us out with Frank’s record as a philanthropist.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        are you really outraged about something in 2005 and Kasakhstan? Is this really what Glenn Beck and Rush are telling you te be outraged about today? wow, you are gullible

      • strayaway

        No, I’m not really outraged about something in 2005 and Kasakhstan. I am probably too numb from enduring the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations’ assaults on our Country and Constitution to make this one thing stand out enough to outrage me. I was actually more outraged to find out a couple of weeks ago that Hillary had accepted $8.3M from a Ukraine oligarch while she was conducting Ukraine policy as Secretary of State. However, it is enough to disqualify Hillary as a crook who should not be let near the Oval Office. It looks and smells like a conflict of interest and a violation of Article 1, Section 9. She should have been imprisoned.

        But my request was that you somehow work your way above name calling and changing the subject to perhaps explain just this one little Clinton foundation transaction. Explain how it qualifies Hillary to be president. So far, you have failed. You only tried to change the subject by intoning the names of Glenn Beck and Rush. Really, you probably can do better than that.So how about Frank Giusta? He is after all big contributor to the Clinton Foundation.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        what is wrong with you? Why should I explain how some conspiracy theory about donations 10 years ago to the Clinton Foundation qualifies Hillary to be President???? Seriously, you should up the meds….I’m not joking. You make no sense. And lay off the RWNJ for a bit and try reality.

      • strayaway

        You should explain because you are contending that Hillary is somehow above reproach. Chris Wallace told the author he had no hard evidence, Yet, donations to the Clinton Foundation are hard evidence of having received millions of dollars. It’s when Frank Giusta, Goldman Sachs, or a Ukraine oligarch have wonderful things happen to them after contributing to the Clinton Foundation that, in my opinion, questions should be asked.That wasn’t just a donation to the Clinton Foundation. It was a $31.3M donation. That is a donation over 31 times larger than Goldman Sachs gave to Bill Clinton in 2008 as his second largest contributor. It’s not hard evidence like admission of guilt but it’s pretty good circumstantial evidence that the Clintons are crooks. You are in denial. You are a supporter of corruption.

        Not too related but remember when “In 1978 and 1979, lawyer and First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Rodham engaged in a series of trades of cattle futures contracts. Her initial $1,000 investment had generated nearly $100,000 when she stopped trading after ten months.” -wikipedia Now it’s $200,000 speeches by Bill and $31M contributions by a foreign businessman dabbling in uranium mines and millions from Ukraine and Saudi leaders that find their way into her foundation. This woman is as crooked as they come.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        you whine about literally everything that she does. It really is a mental disorder you share with Glenn Beck and other half-wit people

      • strayaway

        I only whine about the crooked and destructive stuff she does but that’s enough to keep me busy. I guess you still can’t muster any sort of defense for Hillary’s foundation or her support of so many wars or her support of TPP or the expanding corporatist police state. You better stick to your lame mentions of Beck, Rush, Bush, and the Koch Brothers but give Faux News a pass on this one.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        BTW, I hope you are whining on your right wing sites about how Ted Cruz just received $31 million from one single, two weeks ago. Really, go to breitbart and start lashing out….

      • strayaway

        Do tell. What single donor did Ted Cruz receive $31M from? Was this donor foreign and did he get something in return like Frank Giusta did ? Start with his mame. i am interested.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Haahaa….your Hillary goggles have blinded you.

        Robert Mercer, billionaire hedge fund manager. One time donation, $31 million, roughly two or three weeks ago. That is just the beginning. I’m shocked that you don’t follow the flow of money into your own party….I wonder why that is. Maybe because right wing nutjob sites don’t repeat it over and over.

      • strayaway

        I realize that you are trying to divert attention away from Hillary to random Republican candidate whose interventionist foreign policies are almost as bad as Hilary’s but but I’ll play along. I looked up Robert Mercer and yes he was prominent in raising money toward $31M Ted Cruz raised. He seems to have had a hand in and been a prominent contributor toward that amount although no one is claiming, as you suggested, it was all his own money. I think it’s a worthy concern to bring in to a thread here about Ted Cruz but this one is still about Hillary. I guess that you are trying to say is that Hillary can be as evil as she wants as long as one Republican does something similar. She can be the Democrat of two evils and you are ok with her.

        Unlike much of the money being dumped into the Clinton foundation, however, the Mercer associated donations did not come from foreigners whose donations seem to have secured blessings from the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State; an act, according to Article 1, Section 9 that is punishable with imprisonment. I didn’t read anything about Robert Mercer suggesting that he had ever done anything like secure US uranium supplies for Russia as did Mrs. Clinton’s contributor. he might be greedy but wasn’t promoting treason.

        Goldman Sachs is Mrs. Clinton’s biggest lifetime contributor. Her campaign finance head is even associated with Goldman Sachs. Here I am giving you a break in a way. Ted Cruz’s wife is on leave from her job at GS. Definitely bring that up the next time there is a thread here assailing Ted Cruz. That concerns me too. I don’t like it when politicians’ wives are given wonderful jobs (Hillary, Michelle, Mrs. Cruz) at the moment their husbands win a big election.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        well, I’m glad that you are now concerned about Ted Cruz now. Now please, continue your whine….

        Again, you have no evidence against Hillary. This is just right wing feces slinging. Rush and Beck tell you to be outraged, and right on cue, you are. You are a tremendous follower of the scandal-mongering outrage machine.

      • strayaway

        State Department blessings bestowed on Clinton Foundation contributors while Hilary was SOS is either wild coincidence or a crime punishable with imprisonment according to Article 1, Section 9. I guess that I am less willing to believe in magical coincidence then you are. Those contributions from foreign nations would anywhere else at least sound conflict of interest alarms. Hillary is a war hawk, a corporatist, and a crook by any neutral measure. I don’t think I have heard Rush or Beck for over a year even when turning the dial so you can take that lame diversion and stuff it. It just lowers your status as a poster to constantly make up things and try to divert the conversation to irrelevancies and bad guesses.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        you are a right wing nut job who hates Hillary and would never hold any GOP candidate to the same standard you hold her to. We got it. SSDD.

      • strayaway

        CS, Good news! Bernie Sander has officially announced he is running for president. You no longer have to support your nasty corporatist, criminal war hawk . Sure, Sanders is more socialist but at least he isn’t a flaming crook. Also, in today’s news, Hillary’s foundation forgot to name 1,100 mostly foreign contributors that it had agreed to name. Whoops…Sort of like accidentally wiping out all the emails. Hillary’s crime stream continues. That is why you should welcome the opportunity to vote fore Sanders in the primary. You won’t come out of a voting booth feeling so dirty. Which GOP candidate accepted millions from thousands of foreigners by the way. I want to know so I can cross them off my list.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        it is good news, I agree. Bernie is just not electable and will never be able to beat the GOP ATM machine. Love the guy, but Hillary will be the candidate.

      • strayaway

        Bush isn’t my candidate. As I’ve written over and over, I’ve voted third party 6 of the last 8 times in presidential elections rather than vote for evil. Hillary is however hooked up to the same ATM machine as Bush so the corporate takeover of our government with the expanding police state and unending wars won’t be jeopardized in either case. At least you now have the option of voting for someone else in the primary even though you will probably have to support the Democratic front person for corporatist evil in the general election.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        The corporatists of both wings of the corporate party are glad to accept your surrender, even if it comes with a rationale attached.

      • Flat Banana

        Really not hard to find, but when you live in the right wing bubble, some things pass you by….

      • Flat Banana

        How is this any different than Hillary taking foreign donations from questionable countries?

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        your hypocrisy is the problem, as it always is. Don’t come whining here if you aren’t whining on right wing sites about Cruz’s mysterious benefactors and Jeb’s estimated 100 million he is projected to raise by the end of May.

      • Flat Banana

        I could care less about Jeb. You cant accuse me of hypocrisy when you are doing the same. I didn’t say Cruz getting mysterious amount of money equaling up to $31M is right but I have more of an issue with someone receiving money from countries that don’t support US ideals and the humane treatment of humans.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        how about GW Bush and his daddy’s partnership with Saudi Arabia. Did that bother you at all? Or the Bush’s and Bin Ladens….did that bother you at all? I would bet not

      • Flat Banana

        That relationship started before GW with Reagan in order to contain and push back the expansion of the Soviet Union and that relationship went further into the 90s. This moved in on to Bill Clinton with unexplainable ties to Saudi/China/Iran.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Daddy Bush was Reagan’s VP. I’m sure you aren’t old enough to know this, but now you do…..

      • Flat Banana

        Great.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        And just so you are aware, from 1952 to 2009, obviously the bulk of our modern age, there has been a Bush in a governor’s mansion (in Texas / Florida), on Capitol Hill or in the White House – and usually more than one at a time. And now, we get to look forward to Jeb. Right? Is that really what you want? One family…..57 years straight.

      • Flat Banana

        I no way or form do I want another Bush in the Oval Office. There were things I liked about GW and things I didn’t. For me it is hard to turn my back completely on GW because I am a Vet and he has done a lot for our community. I think the consensus is the US wants new faces to lead the country, hence why Obama won his bid and why Congress has changed a lot recently.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Thank you for what you’ve done for this country. As of this Friday, I will also be a Vet with a wife who is still on active duty and will be for at least the next decade or more, and I have no problem turning my back on any Bush. W Bush is the single worst thing that ever happened to this country. Regardless if this country wants new faces, Bushs just keep popping up and it is going to take another Clinton to beat Jeb. Jeb will be the candidate and there is little doubt after a cursory look at his competition.

      • Flat Banana

        I agree that no other Bush needs to be in office but I would rather not have Hillary, not just because she is a dem but because of her last name. We need to get away from having the “safe route” and elect someone on the qualities they bring not the amount of money they can spend or their “promises”.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        At least we agree that no other Bush needs to be in office, but the reality is that he is the likely candidate. If he wasn’t and there could be a fair election with totally new faces who weren’t bat guano crazy (like many current GOP candidates), I would happily support another democratic candidate. But until the Bushs fade away, the democrats need a battle tested fighter, and that is Hillary.

        The GOP cannot have total control of the Congress, Senate, Presidency and supreme court. We saw what happened when that took place from 2001-2007

      • Flat Banana

        Agreed and O’Malley’s track record in MD will keep him from the nomination.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Like turn a bunch of healthy military into physically or mentally disabled vets for petro interests and Haliburton.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        You seem to be arguing with everybody, just to argue. Are you one of these hipster contrarians? Or you somehow want to prove you are the most ‘left’ person on the internet?

      • Joe Bialobreski

        That you are a simpleminded follower of the Democratic party does not mean that others are not simple minded followers of other dogmas that do not even reach the level of being political ideologies.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        I am no such thing, and you know zero about me or what I have done for this country.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        I do know what your position is now, you have stated it. Please note your statements regarding me, made long before I made this statement.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        You are just simply mad at everyone. I don’t get people like you.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        So as I suspected, nothing to say. I am frequently mad, not to the point of irrational. Get along well with family, friends, and those that I have just met. When people cross lines or offer lame arguments (like yourself) I let them know. How about you my friend? You just kinda put up with others ignorant and hurtful statements and vote every few years. That is a pretty lame excuse of participation by one who holds the highest office in the land, citizen. I get angry when I think of the lives my younger friends and their children will live in. Doesn’t that kinda piss you off? If not, why not?

      • Joe Bialobreski

        I only read about half the comments in this little run but it appears to be a bunch of people, mostly two, arguing about which corporatist should be in the White House. We are so screwed.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        College is just so nice, isn’t it? You can be all idealistic without knowing how things actually function, let along adding in a human element to a complex system.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        I’m 62 years old, got my first job at 15, live in a culturally divers, and class diverse neighborhood. Gee, I guess we should just use our gut rather than actually analyzing the events of the past 30 years. No one is wearing a white hat here.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        White hat? Who in the world are you mad at today? Your anger at Democrats serves no purpose other than helping Republicans gain more power. If that is your intent, well congratulations. It seems like you did a good job in 2010 and 2012.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        all due respect but you are another POS rebublican.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        You are a useful tool Democrat, corporatists love you as much as they love the useful tools of the Republicans.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        When did the humane treatment of humans become a US ideal?

      • strayaway

        Quote form CS’s NY Times article: “He is believed to be the main donor behind a network of four “super PACs” supporting Mr. Cruz that reported raising $31 million just a few weeks into his campaign.”

        Although an intended diversion from this article about Hillary’s corruption, CS translates “is believed” “to be the main donor” into “Ted Cruz just received $31 million from ONE SINGLE donor”. Does being the main donor mean the largest donor, the guy who donated over half the money, or what? I’m not sure but CS translates that into meaning “one single donor”.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Because it is an example of a documented and long lived MO.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Your defending the corporatist princess and calling others gullible? At least the author of the article was willing to admit she is a dirty piece of crap but she is all we’ve got. Please put your efforts into getting Ms. Warren to run.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        I remember my first beer…. I hope yours was good.

        If you have nothing to say, why do you type?

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        why do you troll old comments? Who are you trying to impress? Yourself? If so, you’ve probably done a fine job.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        You were posting here, some addressed to my old comments, about two hours ago. So are you a liar or a hypocrite?

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        why do you pretend to be liberal? Just admit you are GOP and go back to Breitbart and Glenn Beck. It’s OK, there are quite a few like you

      • Joe Bialobreski

        I never said I was a liberal jackwad. I am a Marxist and have been one for over 40 years. Your argumentum ad hominem belies your inability to refute my critique.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        So you are just angry at the entire political system because nobody is as left as you. Got it.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Boy that was a dumb comment. Are you saying you aren’t angry at the entire political system and the economic system it supports? You must be kidding if that is what you are saying. When will you be pissed off, when we go to assigned franchise by skin in the game?

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        hi poser

  • Creeayshun Sighuntist

    What are the conspiracy theorists accusing her of this time? That she should have unilaterally vetoed something that 9 other US government agencies approved? Really? HAHAHAH….oh baggers….when will you ever learn

    • Frank DiChutney

      Creeayshun thinks that if he keeps shilling for the corrupt Clintons long enough, Bill might ask him to come along with him to Jeffrey Epstein’s orgy island.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        you are going to throw your shoulder out of socket with that reach…..

  • Clintoris

    Funny the Clinton Foundation came out and said they “misfiled” their taxes.Just like Hilllary “misplaced” her emails and “mispoke” about coming under sniper fire in Bosnia.This women is a crook.How can you support her?Find another candidate.

    • The Reader

      Clintoris, you offer as much clear evidence as Schweizer – none. You don’t like Hillary, okay. We get it, but why show your ignorance by posting comments you can’t defend. If you are for women, education and the country, it is reason enough to support her. You, however, are for anything Republican or the Tea Party politics so likely can’t imagine a woman in the WH. I have no proof of that either. Can only draw from your comments.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        I am way far left of you Reader, and if this corporatist is the best that Democrats can come up with then liberals may be blowing an unblowable election. There are enough people who would love to vote for a Democrat but don’t want to have to go home and shower as quickly as possible after.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        The problem with Democrats is that we tend to eat our own. I get it. You want a pure Democrat and are willing to lose to a Republican just to prove some point. Some Democrats don’t want to hand over the reigns of our Government to the GOP one more time, who already control both Houses, the Supreme Court, and they have their sites set on the Presidency. Is that really what you want if your scorched earth strategy doesn’t succeed? We saw that unfold from 2001-2007. At least I saw that unfold. How did you like that outcome? Don’t you wish the Democrats had won either of those elections? Or were you old enough to know what was going on at that point.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        I see you didn’t answer my questions….why is that?

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Because there wasn’t a question.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        see the post directly below. Those are the questions I was referring to. Do you want the GOP to have total control once again if you can’t have your perfect candidate?

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Nope, I don’t. It is a long time until the nomination. Are you willing to admit that Hillary is the best that the Democratic party branch of the one corporate party can come up with? Oh wait. Bernie is in the race. Are you saying that we can’t go nominating somebody who actually wants to stop the slow motion coup, that would be crazy? Elizabeth Warren says she ain’t running. Are you saying that if the people begged her to run she would say no? I think not. Remember, putting Hillary up for Prez is at least raising the possibility of blowing an unblowable election.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

      Clintoris, provide a better candidate and we will gladly vote for her or him. So far, no better candidate has come forward.

      • Joe Bialobreski

        Bernie, LIz, or dig a little further into the more left elements of your party. Are you saying that your party is so lame that this thing is the best you have to offer. If that is what you are saying, say it right now.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        “your” party? OK…so you are just a poser….just go away

      • Joe Bialobreski

        I am an American citizen who votes in Presidential elections. I am not a Democrat. Had I stated I was, I would be a poser. Are you saying only Democrats are allowed to comment on Presidential candidates?
