More trouble ahead for Jeb?

As everyone knows, it’s been a tough ten days for Jeb Bush, and not just regarding his bumbling response to Megyn Kelly’s rather straightforward “If you knew then what you know now…” question.  The revelation today that a company whose board Jeb served on and in which he invested paid $225K to Hillary for a speech raises all sorts of uncomfortable questions.  And the very man who made Clinton speeches a political issue for Hillary, Peter Schweizer, is dropping some pretty broad hints that he has troubling information coming on Jeb’s financial ties.

Ian Hanchett of Breitbart:

“Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer said that he is ” finding some interesting, compelling things” in his investigation of Jeb Bush on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

Schweizer reported, “We’re about four months into the research project, obviously not as global in scope as the Clintons, but you know, as governor of the state of Florida, you have a lot of things that you can do. So we’re following the money. We’re looking at land deals. We’re looking at an airport deal. We are looking at some of the educational reforms that were instituted, and some of the big corporate winners there, and the flow of funds to foundation. And we expect, Hugh, to have something on that in early September. And I’d love to come back and talk about it.”

He added, “And look, we are in the middle of the investigation. I would tell you that if there was nothing there, we would have stopped the investigation. I think we’re finding some interesting, compelling things. But I don’t want to create the impression that we have decided that we know what we’ve found. This is very much an active inquiry.”

Sure, it might be hype.  But Schweizer has a lot of cred right now.  If he digs up dirt on Jeb, it can only enhance his credibility with both the MSM and the GOP base.  A handy trick, that.

Jeb still hasn't committed to running.  Something to keep in mind.
