As Counsel to the President and a White House adviser on domestic policy during the Clinton Administration, William E. Curry got to know both members of Washington’s most famous power couple.
And what he saw has him firmly in the ranks of Bernie Sanders supporters.
He explains why in this RT America interview:
Hillary is ‘too close to Wall Street, a part of ‘soft-corruption’” – fmr advisor to Bill Clinton
While the residents of New Hampshire head to the Primary polls on Tuesday, the gap between the Democratic campaigns of underdog Bernie Sanders and presumed-annointee Hillary Clinton have been tightening, as was demonstrated in Iowa’s Caucus earlier in the month. A number of major roadblocks related to Clinton’s connections with the “political establishment” could be driving this. Former White House advisor to Bill Clinton, Bill Curry, joins RT to dissect what could hold back Hillary and propel Bernie in the Granite State.

Finally, a headline from the London Daily Mail:
EXCLUSIVE: How the Clintons embraced Wall Street and made $76,000 a DAY by cashing in with speech after speech – but now Hillary wants to fight to ‘rein in’ the money men
- Hillary and Bill Clinton have taken in a total of $150 MILLION since 2001, when he left office
- In 2015, at the height of their earning power, she and Bill made $27,946,490 in total – $76,565.72 every day
- They made speech after speech to Wall Street big names with 39 appearances for banks and other financial and legal institutions
- She refuses to release transcripts which she ordered to be made of the speeches unless every candidate does the same for all private sector talks
- Hillary spoke to series of other bodies, never for less than six figures, and even got $100,000 for a satellite appearance
- Now she says she wants to ‘rein in Wall Street’ and get ‘secret unaccountable money out of politics’
UPDATE: Another headline, this one from The Intercept:
Lobbyists, Consultants Fret Over Bernie Sanders Victory
Bernie Sanders won an overwhelming victory in the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary, capturing nearly every demographic group and 60 percent of the vote. The insurgent democratic socialist from Vermont, however, was not celebrated in some quarters of Washington, D.C., as a number of lobbyists and business political consultants took to Twitter to complain.
