According to emails released by WikiLeaks yesterday, which came from a hack of the email account of John Podesta, a co-chair of Obama’s 2008 Transition Team, we learn that despite the obvious fact that Citigroup was both corrupt and derelict in handling its own financial affairs, Barack Obama gave executives of that bank an outsized role in shaping and staffing his first term.…Because Robert Rubin did so well for Bill Clinton.
Conflict of interest if not outright corruption even though technically no cash was passed under the table. Absent quid pro quo, it all legal, and in the world of liberalism, if it is legal it also moral.
