Senior Hillary Clinton aides agreed the campaign should accept political donations from lobbyists working on behalf of foreign governments, according to the latest batch of WikiLeaks emails released Sunday.
Campaign manager Robby Mook replied to an email chain discussing the campaign’s policy toward accepting contributions from foreign registered agents that he was “OK just taking the money and dealing with any attacks,” theNew York Post reported.
Clinton campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri responded, “Take the money!!”
Dennis Cheng, national finance director for the Clinton campaign, began the email thread on April 13, 2015, just one day after the former secretary of state announced her decision to run for the White House.
