'Scandal' as stars from TV show do fund-raiser with Clinton staffers at center of email probe

Reaction from Fox News Radio's Alan Colmes and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce

 

The cast of Scandal, including President Fitzgerald Grant, will host a fundraiser with Hillary Clinton in DC next week, and it will feature the cast of Hillary Clinton’s own top scandal: her Chappaqua bathroom email server.

According to Variety, the fundraiser will take place next Wednesday, and tickets range from $250 for a single attendee to $1,000 for a “friend.” If Hillary’s bundlers wrangle more than $5,000 in donations for the event, they are designated as “co-hosts” and get to attend a special meet and greet with the Scandal cast.

It’s not unusual for Shonda Rhimes, Scandal‘s creator, to be raising money for a Democratic candidate. She’s starred in Clinton campaign ads, she’s raised plenty of money for Democrats, and she even invited Clinton to spend a day on the set of Scandal in February.

What is unusual, is that the self-indulgent Clinton campaign failed to recognize the implications of having their scandal-ridden aides appear alongside Scandal stars. Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan are the two highest-placed Clinton aides connected to her email scandal.

Huma Abedin, Clinton’s right-hand woman, sent and received classified information through the Clinton Chappaqua server, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch. The emails show Clinton asking Abedin to print a classified email from Tony Blair to her top national security staffer Jacob Sullivan. The request passed through both Clinton’s and Sullivan’s non-state.gov email accounts.
