President Bill Clinton Asked PM Tony Blair For a Political Favor Back in 2000 and No One Cared
Fox’s Tucker Carlson searched through former President Bill Clinton’s transcripts and found that back in 2000 Clinton asked Prime Minister Tony Blair directly “to take a look at it.” Clinton was referring to a problem in the election season.
Carlson told viewers on Monday night, “You’ve heard endlessly on cable news that it is unprecedented the president would seek political gain from a conversation with a foreign leader. Well, turns out, it has happened before.”
Carlson read the official transcript: “In a political season, it would be big over here to get this open sore resolved. If you could have somebody take a look at it.”
