Clinton Spokesman Learns From the Master

So the New York Times published its first big Clinton Cash story today, which was about how Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company.

Immediately, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said this:
"[No one] has produced a shred of evidence supporting the theory that Hillary Clinton ever took action as Secretary of State to support the interests of donors to the Clinton Foundation," Fallon told The Times."

That statement sounds familiar. So slippery and equivocating, and it has the distinctive sound of Clintonian Denial. Where have we heard that statement before?

Why, from none other than Bill Clinton himself when he denied similar, albeit less lucrative, charges of corruption at a 1996 press conference:
“But I can tell you this: I don’t believe you can find any evidence of the fact that I had changed government policy solely because of a contribution.”

Has Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon been studying Bill's old playbook?

Pull the ring you find at their back and hear them talk. This is excruciating.
