Watchdog: Hillary Clinton in ‘League of Her Own’ with Ethics Violations

BY: Morgan Chalfant for The Washington Free Beacon

A watchdog group that has asked the federal government to investigate a number of possible ethics violations involving Hillary Clinton has named the presidential candidate the worst ethics violator of 2015.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) released its list of worst ethics violators Tuesday, placing Clinton in a “league of her own” due to ongoing ethics scandals involving the former secretary of state.

The watchdog cited a number of examples as evidence Clinton abused her government position and violated ethics rules, including a recent report that then-secretary of state Clinton gave preferential treatment to a business associate of her son-in-law in 2012.

Last week, FACT filed a complaint with the Office of Government Ethics to investigate whether Clinton gave special government access to an investor at a deep-sea mining company because of his connection to her daughter’s husband, Mark Mezvinsky.

Revelations about Clinton’s intervention on behalf of her son-in-law, first reported by the Associated Press, were uncovered in the most recent batch of Clinton emails that the State Department has been vetting and releasing since it was discovered that the former secretary of state exclusively worked on a personal email account. The FBI is currently investigating Clinton’s email setup.
