The vote on his confirmation has already been delayed because of his failure to turn over documents. Now, with this document drop on a Friday, he still hasn’t complied. Most transparent administration in history strikes again!
The Atlantic Council, chaired by former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), released a list late Friday evening of corporate donors as well as foreign governments that had funded it over the past five years.
The list did not shed light on individuals such as Saad Hariri, whose family has given generously to the Atlantic Council and who has supported the Hamas terror organization publicly, as well as offering financial support to Syrian rebels.
On Jan. 29, Senators on the Armed Services Committee requested information on donors to the Atlantic Council and several other organizations with which Hagel is affiliated, as well as additional information about past speeches he delivered and other compensation he received. Hagel failed to meet the committee’s 5 p.m. deadline on Feb. 4 and wrote to the committee on Feb. 5 to say he would not comply.
