Remember the rolling disclosures of the last presidency, when the Clintons would release just enough information after a scandal broke to placate the pliant media? Well, here they go again.
Only this time, they are telegraphing that they will keep certain things altogether secret should they return to the White House as co-presidents. And you thought they couldn't be more brazen.
Both Clintons, for example, have refused to disclose the names of donors to the William J. Clinton Foundation. Bill says he will remain mum about all past donors, though he didn't say that in so many words. As usual, you have to closely parse his words. Speaking of Hillary, he said, "If she gets elected president, I will disclose the contributions that people make from there going forward."
Catch that? He will let the public know about any donations going forward — that is, after January 2009 — but not one donation before then. The $100 million-plus in donations raised for his library, "global initiatives" and other Clinton activities until that point will remain anonymous. In short, he really doesn't plan to disclose a thing.
