Bill Clinton Asked UK’S Tony Blair To ‘Take A Look At’ Fixing Problem During 2000 ‘Political Season’ Paper

October 8, 2019

Democrats have been calling on President Trump to bomb his so-called foreign aid before the 2020 election, but a comment published in February 2000 may indicate that stones are being thrown in the glass house.

On Monday, Tucker Carlson discussed the call history between former President Bill Clinton and the then British. Prime Minister Tony Blair, in the same year as Clinton Vice President Al Gore, met with George W. Bush – during this period, the former president Ask his British president to give political support.

“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 said.

“Back in 2000, President Bill Clinton had a conversation with Tony Blair of the U.K. and asked him to intercede in a dispute between British Airways and two carriers. The president, at the time, was much more direct than President Trump was in his conversation.

“This is Bill Clinton, and I’m quoting: ‘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.’ Tony Blair responded that he would.”

Carlson continued: “Now, is this a big deal? Not really. Is it nakedly political? Is it an attempt to use a foreign country to influence the outcome of an election in a presidential year? Yes it is, obviously.

“Incidentally, it didn’t take long for us to find that, we only had to dig through old Clinton transcripts for about 15 minutes… there are probably a lot more examples, and if we find them we will bring them to you.”
