Washington AC/DC - (Ponzi Scam Mess): The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has grilled Obama Secretary of State-nominee Hillary Clinton over the size of Bernie Madoff's 'charitable' donations to her husband's presidential library.
"I'm guessing it's between £25 and $30 million," Senator Richard Lugar (R. Ind.) chuckled as a beetroot-faced Hillary denied feckless hedge fund trickser Madoff had "ever" tried to curry favor with the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton, 69, also played down reports that Brunei fugitive from justice Prince Jefri Archer had bunged her presidential campaign £2 million, siphoned off from accounts in the Brunei Crude Slush Fund.
In September last year the former Senator for New York amused millions of Americans by vowuing to "nuke the shit" out of Iran if elected to the ultimate seat of power.
The casual remark cost her husband a hefty $35 million after the Iranian Daughters of the Revolution demanded their donation back from the Arkansas charity.
