[See NewsBusters for more.] A Boston law firm has been secretly funneling money to top Democrats in an effort to influence the 2016 elections. Yet, ABC and NBC have, thus far, skipped the revelation. Only CBS This Morning on Wednesday covered the story. Co-host Gayle King explained, “Hillary Clinton's campaign is returning thousands of dollars in donations tied to what may be one of largest straw donors schemes ever uncovered.” She added that the Thorton law firm has given thousands to Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren and Harry Reid, as well as President Obama. Hillary Clinton is giving back her donation. Reporter Tony Dokoupil told viewers, “According to the firm's own documents leaked by a whistle-blower, days or even hours after making these donations partners received money matching the amount they gave.”
