Clinton foundation slush fund article from 2001 scrubbed, Rush Limbaugh quotes NY Times August 2013 article, NewsMax articles prior to 2007 scrubbed, Citizen Wells retrieved from Wayback, Dick Morris called it a slush fund
“If the guilty and unrepentant get off easy, what type of
prosecution is this. It’s not time to blame the Independent
Counsel Law; blame the prosecutor who wouldn’t do his job.
Because of Kenneth W. Starr’s complicity, the most corrupt
administration in the history of the country continues with
no end in sight. God save us all.”…Christopher Ruddy, NewsMax July 1, 1999
“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”…Bob Herbert, NY Times February 26, 2001
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
I don’t get to listen to Rush Limbaugh as much as I want but I caught part of his show today.
This was fortuitous.
He was addressing the media exposing Hillary Clinton.
He then stated this:
“I went back and actually looked. The first story on this about the Clinton Family Foundation and it being a slush fund, started in August of 2013. If the truth be known, the New York Times actually led the way on all of this. They had a very long and detailed article on the Clinton Family Slush Fund Foundation way back in August of 2013. It was called “Unease at Clinton Foundation Over Finances and Ambitions.” We spoke about it at length when it came out in August of 2013. ”
Perhaps the reason Rush Limbaugh thought this was the first article about the Clinton Foundation being a slush fund was because a much earlier one, from February 9, 2001 was scrubbed by NewsMax. You know, the NewsMax owned by Christopher Ruddy who became friends with the Clintons in 2007.
“The following article can no longer be found at NewsMax. Apparently their archives only go back to 2007.

“Morris: Clinton Library Foundation Is a ‘Slush Fund’
“The William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation, which reportedly expects to raise $200 million to build a library to help memorialize the ex-president’s legacy, is nothing more than a ‘slush fund,’” says one-time Clinton confidant Dick Morris.
“First, let’s understand what the word ‘library’ means,” Morris told Fox News Channel’s Paula Zahn Thursday night.
“This is not a fund that will go for brick and mortar to build a building – and the contractors will spend the money and that’s it. It’s been rumored and reported that the amount that they have raised substantially, if not vastly, exceeds the amount needed to build the building.”
“This is a fund – in effect, a foundation, a kind of slush fund that Clinton will have for the rest of his life,” Morris charged.
“He’ll use [the money] for staff, he’ll use it for transportation, he’ll use it for all kinds of things that could be loosely identified as foundation business,” Morris explained.
“And basically, when you’re paying money to this foundation, you’re not just paying it for brick and mortar, you’re paying it for Bill Clinton’s upkeep.”
“This is going to be Clinton’s private, personal slush fund,” Morris told Zahn.
Last Friday Clinton told reporters that his foundation would contribute $300,000 to offset an anticipated $800,000 annual rent for his post-presidential office space, after Congress complained about the sky-high costs.”
Now do you understand why I have been resurrecting these scrubbed articles from the Wayback Machine?
Feel free to inform Rush.
