Right now of the power of money should government employees.
Be able to work full time on the taxpayer's dime and have another highly paid gig.
On the side.
Hillary Clinton's top State Department -- -- will not -- to dean.
Who's married to former congressman Anthony -- sign on for outside consulting -- -- working at the agency is -- a backdoor way for companies to buy government implements.
Joining me now -- former -- Senator Fox News contributor Scott Brown look back to the show.
When you drill on the details of this story.
It in my opinion looks this year and this year because here she is with a full time job working for the State Department she takes on this other job as a consultant.
But it pays more than double what her main job does she's making a 150 working for statement it you know something like 350 during this consulting job -- the side.
It seems like how could this part time job he's so much more than her full time job.
If there wasn't something to it I don't am -- making too much of it.
Well I think listen you she was the -- Hillary Clinton's top advisors top.
Assistance and there is a tremendous amount of work being.
Needed at the State Department obviously would -- you guys in everything that happened.
You would think that that will be enough.
But then that's just like Washington is this lack of trust between.
Not only Washington and the workers in Washington the American people only in Washington you get a great gig like that.
And there about a hundred other people doing these so called consulting jobs in there is a process to get the approval but.
Like senator Grassley said he's wondering is that if there's more to -- just like you are asking.
Right is there more to it and I wonder what could she possibly do that would be worth 300 -- -- 355000.
Dollars and in researching.
This company that she's going to work for is working where is doing -- consulting to nail holdings is a consulting firm that was founded by Bill Clinton aide Doug bear arms.
And if you look at just what they say in their mission statement.
It gives you some insight into what she could be doing that would be worth so much more money -- -- regular job it says our team's deep collective experience.
Working at the highest echelons of public and private sector.
Forms a rich knowledge base and a global network of relationships.
That we bring to bear on behalf of our clients every day so they had their workers heavy global network of relationships.
That they bring to bear for their clients every day to many that sounds like I'm buying influence.
-- -- to read.
And at that level when you.
-- and when you when you're at -- -- and you're working for the secretary of state and you're heard top advisor and top assistant.
To think then you're also going to be working for a consulting company that.
Allows -- provides access pursuant to the web site.
It just doesn't pass the smell test is something that senator Grassley is has noted do it with a three page letter.
He's asking for for answers -- is very real questions.
I know senator Grassley star always methodical.
And he just doesn't go Willy Nilly just because he wants to make sure that there's no.
-- conflict or impropriety or the appearance of undue influence if and if there is a problem and they should fix it.
This and this is another example I -- insider trading bell was my bill.
In the middle and the middle -- day and above fourteen seconds I think in the senate.
Twenty seconds and -- house they reversed and they -- it so it doesn't apply to employees or the executive branch is just another way we're you know hey listen American public.
You do everything that we pass the laws -- but we don't have to -- exempt.
Now we can anyone tell me money of the zionist is other stuff is what it feels like and senator you know you mentioned the fact that she said that she went through the proper channels.
And got the right approval for this and secured that.
Which to me means that if there is a proper channel to go through in order to get this done that there must be an awful lot of people out there who are asking for permission.
Do you do this sort of thing on the side and if she was given approval.
Then there must be a lot more people out there who were also given approval and are working at the State Department or wherever outside our dime.
But are earning much more for their influence on the side of my rate to assume that maybe there's a lot more at that she is just the tip of the iceberg.
-- yeah I would assume I understood that there was -- least another hundred that have been approved.
-- bottom line is they need to review this process and shut in shut it down especially when you're working for the secretary of state and you -- you.
Pleased with everything that happened don't you think there were busy enough what can -- do to make another 350000.
It it's gonna -- a lot of money senator Grassley is going to be all over this and rightly so in and if there's a process we should shut down.
The process and make sure that -- they're working for the American taxpayer then they gonna get a good value for that dollar we are going to get a good value for those dollars.
And they can work after they're done.
-- you know when I was look at my dad used to say I wonder how you know people go to Washington without any money they make 100000 dollars a year and they leave and suddenly they're rich it's something you should keep your -- I think that's absolutely true senator thank you so much for coming on the show.
-- to -- -- thank you coming.
