4/27/15 Podcast Steve Roberts

In Podcasts

A book coming out very soon called “Clinton Cash” has raised some questions regarding foreign donations made to the Clinton Foundation, and business being conducted by the State Department during the time Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Some of the revelations, following further investigation by others, have spawned additional questions. Of course the Clinton campaign has called it all a witch hunt, though the head of the Foundation over the weekend admitted it needs to be more transparent as to where its funds are coming from, and promised to start being so. In any case, Steve discusses what he makes out of the matter at this point, and whether there are any storm clouds forming that Clinton should be concerned about.

Shell-shocked and sleeping in the streets, tens of thousands of Nepalese braced against terrifying aftershocks Sunday while digging for survivors in the devastation wrought a day earlier by a massive earthquake that ripped across this Himalayan nation and killed more than 2,500 people. Aid groups received the first word from remote mountain villages — reports that suggested many communities perched on mountainsides were devastated or struggling to cope. Landslides hindered rescue teams that tried to use mountain trails to reach those in need. Right now communications are very bad from the affected area, so Tom will have the latest details on the devastation from London.

Over the weekend, some of those family members were relocated from a hotel they were staying at by the FBI, though no further details as to why have been released.
