Dick Morris, in his book “Rewriting History”, addresses the Marc Rich pardon and large donations to the Clintons and Democratic Party from the exwife of Marc Rich, Denise. Here are some excerpts:
“Of course, that was not Clinton’s only problematic pardon. The most controversial went to Mark Rich, a fugitive who fled the United States, renounced his American citizenship, and settled in Switzerland to avoid answering federal fraud charges. National anger over pardoning a man who wouldn’t appear in court and was no longer even an American citizen-and still won’t come back to the United States as of this writing-was long and loud.
Rich’s estranged wife, songwriter and Clinton supporter Denise Rich, fought hard for the pardon, and distributed her financial largesse far and wide to win favorable consideration. Among her donations to Clinton-related funds was $ 450,000 to the Clinton Library, $10,000 to the Clinton’s legal defense fund, $ 70,000 to the Hillary Clinton campaign or committees that suppported her campaign, as well as a gift of $ 7,000 worth of furniture to the Clintons. Rich also gave $ 1 million to the Democratic Party and other Democratic candidates.”
“Rewriting History” by Dick Morris is a must read.
