Liberal economist Jeffrey Sachs remarked Bill and Hillary Clinton are in "utter pursuit of money" practically "all the time" Thursday night on MSNBC's The Last Word during a discussion of dark money politics.
"They are the ultimate schmoozers," he said. "Bill Clinton's the one that opened the Democratic Party to Wall Street, really wrecked the party in ideological terms, I would say, and created a lot of the mischief that led here. Now we see how just frankly in utter pursuit of money they are all the time, so they're vulnerable."
