Jack Abramoff thinks Hillary Clinton should be in prison.
The former super lobbyist, who spent nearly four years in prison himself for fraud and corruption, explained why on the latest episode of “The Jamie Weinstein Show” podcast, where he also discussed the 2016 presidential race, how to fix Washington corruption and the lessons he learned over his infamous career.
Speaking of Hillary Clinton’s role in the Clinton Foundation, Abramoff said she “is the most corrupt person in the history of the United States to get this close to the presidency, including by leaps and bounds Warren Harding.”
“She’s been involved in activities that frankly I was put in prison for and that I was in prison with other people who did other things that she did,” he said.
Abramoff said Clinton was clearly “selling special access” with her and her husband’s charitable foundation.
“Her staff — Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin — were very involved in facilitating donors getting special access,” he said. “Forget about whether they got results, because that’s not really the metric. The metric is are you using your public service to do something for somebody in exchange for a quid pro quo and there seems to be very little doubt there is.”
