A Gift for Hillary

The American Prospect quotes a foreign banker with U.S. clients who said tickets to the former president’s 60th birthday party in Toronto this weekend were sold with the possible future president in mind.

“Senator Clinton has no connection to her husband’s philanthropic operation. “But the message was pretty clear,” says an executive with a foreign-owned bank that does not operate in the U.S., but has clients in America. “If we wanted some access to Senator Clinton, the foundation would be a good way to facilitate some access for our issues.”
