This point in history serves as another example of how quid-pro-quo works in the Clinton world. The Clinton’s do not do anything for anybody unless there is something in it for them. That is not to say that Clinton violated any laws, rather it is yet another peg in the Clinton pattern of questionable and controversial acts. Although, some people have accused Hillary Clinton of playing a clandestine role in Rich’s pardon.
Regardless of the potential of criminal liability, the obvious implication is that if you donate or pay the Clintons, in one form or another, good things happen to you, such as a pardon for alleged criminal activities.
