Paul Begala and Randi Weingarten need to come clean with the American people about their relationship and how the attack ad they released yesterday against  Donald Trump was actually funded.... 

Begala's pro-Hillary Clinton Super Political Action Committee called Priority USA in conjunction with EMILY'S LIST Women's Vote! Joint Fundraising Committee took a $500,000 contribution on March 16, 2016 at 1:19 p.m. EST from the American Federation of Teachers "American Federation of Teachers Solidarity 527" to help fund this Anti-Trump ad that his You Tube yesterday entitled "Speak!"


Randi Weingarten who according to filings with the Federal Elections Committee sits on the Board of Directors of  "Priorities USA Action" that was founded in 2012 and Paul Begala is the the "Senior Advisor/Principal" with that super pac.

The political operative behind "Priorities USA" is CNN's Paul Begala.

So, my question is.  

Why is Paul Begala NOT disclosing his financial arrangement with Randi Weingarten and the American Federation of Teachers to the audience who watch CNN's political coverage day in and day out.  

Second of all, why is CNN allowing Begala a platform during this campaign?

He is using CNN to pad his wallet....just like their other "contributor" Van Jones.

Here is the link to the details of the contribution.....
