Gingrich: It’s “Dangerous” For Foreign Governments To Give To U.S. Officials & Candidates

Yesterday morning, former Speaker Newt Gingrich made the case for why Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the Russian/Uranium One deal deserves greater scrutiny:

“My point is they took money from foreign governments while she was Secretary of State. That is clearly illegal,” said Mr. Gingrich. “This is not about politics. It’s illegal. And it’s dangerous to America to have foreign governments get in the habit of bribing people who happen to be the husband of the secretary of state or the next president of the United States.”

“You had a sitting Secretary of State whose husband radically increased his speech fees, you have a whole series of dots on the wall now where people gave millions of dollars — oh, by the way, they happen to get taken care of by the State Department,” he said.
