Mark Cuban Attacks Jack Welch Over the Clinton Foundation by Ben Geier @FortuneMagazine August 23, 2016, 3:57 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Linkedin Share icons Mark Cuban has made no secret of his disdain for Republican nominee Donald Trump and support for Hillary Clinton. He’s questioned whether Trump is actually a billionaire, claimed that Clinton is a superior negotiator, and belittled Trump’s intelligence. On Tuesday, the billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner went after Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, for criticizing Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. It all started when Welch, a loyal Republican, tweeted allegations of “pay-to-play” politics involving the Clinton Foundation, the controversial philanthropic venture Clinton and her family have run. Hate to see my old acquaintance @Austan_Goolsbee having to defend illegal "pay to play" of ClintonStateDept/Foundation on @megynkelly — Jack Welch (@jack_welch) August 23, 2016 Austan Goolsbee, former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers for the Obama administration, had appeared on The Kelly File, a Fox News program hosted by Megyn Kelly. Goolsbee had debated another guest over whether Clinton emails had shown her aides were doing favors for Clinton Foundation donors. Cuban then came back with a series of tweets disparaging Welch’s accusations. .@jack_welch @Austan_Goolsbee @megynkelly You know what it's like to be falsely accused. Shouldn't you back up accusations with facts ? — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) August 23, 2016 .@jack_welch @Austan_Goolsbee @megynkelly You have money. Access. Give one example where you were able to buy "pay for play" from Clintons ? — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) August 23, 2016 Cuban apparently was making an allusion to the fact that when Welch was CEO, critics had accused him of manipulating numbers, Business Insider notes. Welch is no fan of the Democratic Party. He has accused President Barack Obama and his “Chicago guys” of cooking jobs numbers, making the numbers look better than they are. Welch never offered any evidence. Cuban also tweeted that “no lies” had been found in the thousands of Clinton e-mails and accused Trump of lying on Federal Elections Commission documents. We have seen 30k+ @HillaryClinton emails Not one has been highlighted as a lie. Trump lied on his FEC filing and lies every speech #helies — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) August 23, 2016 Cuban initially said he’d consider being a vice president running mate of Clinton or Trump. He’s more recently appeared on the campaign trail for Clinton in his hometown of Pittsburgh.
