Former senior White House ethics officials have said a new Hillary Clinton administration would have to take careful steps to ensure that past foundation donors would not have the same access as she allowed at the State Department. Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon did not respond directly to the Associated Press’s questions recently about Clinton transition plans regarding ethics, but said in a statement Tuesday that the standard set by the Clinton Foundation's ethics restrictions was "unprecedented, even if it may never satisfy some critics." (Emphasis mine).
In one sense, he may be correct. What is unprecedented is the Foundation’s lack of ethics restrictions.
And its chutzpah.
