“it’s a whole other thing when somebody is the president of the United States”
The fact that Russ Feingold is even running for Senate is proof that the Democratic Party has no back bench. Feingold is a re-run who served in the Senate from 1993 to 2011.
He is a big fan of Hillary, too. He even thinks she’s trustworthy.
The Journal Sentinel reports:
Russ Feingold calls Hillary Clinton ‘trustworthy’
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold called Hillary Clinton “reliable and trustworthy” Monday but reaffirmed his stance that if she’s elected president she should consider shutting down the Clinton Foundation.
“What I’m saying is, it’s a whole other thing when somebody is the president of the United States. And that the highest level of scrutiny should be applied to something like that when somebody becomes president,” Feingold said after a campaign appearance.
The Clinton Foundation has emerged as an issue in the presidential race between Clinton, the Democratic nominee, and Republican Donald Trump. Locally, Trump’s state campaign has called for Feingold to weigh in on Clinton’s ethics as secretary of state.
Last week, The Associated Press reported that “more than half the people outside government” who met with Clinton while she was secretary of state “gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation.” Clinton and her supporters have said the AP analysis was flawed.
The comment wasn’t lost on Republican incumbent Ron Johnson:
Try not to laugh – Senator Feingold thinks Hillary Clinton is trustworthy https://t.co/9w3ppEnQGQ

Johnson and Feingold recently faced off in a debate.
Here’s a video via WKTB News in Wisconsin:
Republicans would be wise to ask all Democrat candidates if they agree with Feingold.
It’s a no win question.
