The pot calling the kettle?

Henry Hyde’s Republican Policy Committee released this family tree that illustrates the “connections” from the Clintons to failed S&L Madison Guaranty and its Whitewater investments.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
