Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the Earth Institute and a liberal professor at Columbia University, explained this morning on Morning Joe what's wrong with the Clinton Foundation:
"There is a lot of money sloshing around and everything is blurred and it's not good," said Sachs.
"And there is a lot here that is real, whether it's quid pro quos or not, who knows. But the amount of schmoozing involved and crossing lines and one person putting money in a foundation, and then Clinton getting unbelievable amounts for his speeches, and then contracts going one way or another, it's not good.
"Those blurry lines have been seen by many people over the years. This book [Clinton Cash] describes them."

In case you missed it, you still have 15 hours left to donate and be automatically entered for a special opportunity to attend our annual Clinton Foundation Gala on March 4," Chelsea Clinton writes in an email this morning from the foundation.

With the quiet announcement that the United States is earmarking $50 million from the defense budget immediately for France and Niger, two countries in the forefront of the battle for Mali against Islamist hordes and Tuareg secessionists, the Obama administration appears to be indicating that it views with a jaundiced eye the potential of our enemies to burst out of the Sahara, cross the Niger river, and wreak havoc throughout the Sahel and beyond.
