Hillary Clinton under fire after Boeing gave her foundation $900,000 weeks after she made 'shameless pitch' for company to a Russian airline
- While secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton asked Russia's state-owned airline Rosavia to buy Boeing planes
- Boeing won the multibillion-dollar contract, and then made a $900,000 donation to a Clinton Foundation program rebuilding schools in Haiti
- A conservative activist challenged Boeing's CEO during a shareholder meeting, saying the move could open the company to prosecution
- The apparent conflict-of-interest is a black eye for Mrs. Clinton as she prepares to enter the 2016 presidential race
'That said,' the strategist, concluded, 'Boeing will get a black eye out of this, and so will Hillary Clinton. It seems like the longer she waits to decide whether or not to run, the more baggage there will be clustered around her feet.'
