    Sorry. I meant to put in title "while Hillary was SOS".

    The point is, there are claims that Hillary did political favors in return for paying Bill for speeches. I've just never heard what the specific favors were. I'm curious if anyone knows what they might be.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Judicial Watch is partisan. They say she ok'd the Uranium One deal, which isn't true of course.

    Yea, I know. Does that mean anything and everything they say is erroneous?

    I never use them as a reference, they are ultra bias. They exist for the GOP.

    I agree and that's why I posed the question here.

    On another note, Judicial Watch has been effective at getting government agencies to release information to the public via their Freedom of Information requests, some of which they've gone to court to obtain.

    Let me ask you a question. Are there any political organizations that are "partisans" for the Democratic Party?

    i doubt hillary.... as SOS....was able to 'sign off' on any 'favors' by herself...
    you know - having checks & balances 'n all....

    like uranium one... it has been debunked 6 ways to sunday, but the rwnjs need to believe the pablum they are spoon fed to help justify their all consuming hatred of her.

    Dark money manages the mind of the right in America, money and corporate power have always fought honest reporting. Focusing on the Clintons keeps the partisan busy looking in the wrong direction. Nothing new here. I'm already getting Trump social media BS.
