Matt Lauer of the Today Show has been chosen to moderate a forum with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton which will focus on the U.S. Military next week.
One little problem… Lauer has been a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, an arm of the Clinton Foundation.
The Daily Caller reports:
Matt Lauer Will Moderate The First Forum Between Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton
Matt Lauer will moderate the first forum between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
On Wednesday, Sept. 7, NBC News and MSNBC — along with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America — will host the the Commander-in-Chief Forum in New York City.
It will be a one-hour forum where Clinton and Trump will answer questions about national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of members of the military. The two candidates will not be on the stage at the same time, but will instead go back to back.
It’s worth noting that Lauer is listed as a “notable past member” on the Clinton Global Initiative’s website — along with Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric.
Trump supporters have valid reasons to be concerned about this.
Lauer is not just part of the liberal media, he’s one of their poster children and his connection to the Clinton Foundation represents an obvious conflict of interests.
