JOY REID: The quid here is to very wealthy people, give us money so we can give 11.5 million people AIDS drugs and the quo is Huma Abedin may call you back. That is not a quid pro quo in the sense. And I think we have to ask whether we've invented a new standard. The George Bush Foundation, which benefits him, it benefits his library which can accept foreign donations, existed all through the eight years of his son's presidency. I don't recall us asking whether people who might want to influence President George W. Bush could simply give to a foundation that benefited him. This foundation does not financially benefit the Clinton family at all.
