Hey, they have to sell the Clinton Foundation somehow, right? The influence-peddling business model doesn’t function very well when there’s no influence to peddle. The original plan had Hillary Clinton as President with access to the broadest power of the federal government, and Chelsea Clinton at the foundation to coordinate the transactions.
