Bill Clinton 'shocked' Hillary donor was a fugitive

Newsday reported Former President Bill Clinton said he was "shocked" by revelations that a top fundraiser for his wife is a fugitive from justice and claimed he didn't even know what "HillRaiser" Norman Hsu did for a living.
You mean there is gambling, right here in River CIty, in the pool hall.
"You could have knocked me over with a straw, especially when I heard the L.A. people had been allegedly looking for him for 15 years when he was in plain view," he told Newsday while touring a county fair in rural New Hampshire Sunday.
If Bill had known he was a fugitive he would have pardoned him, like all of the other donors he pardoned.
"I never knew how he made a living or anything, but I was shocked," said Clinton of Hsu, who has made millions as an investor in tetxtile and other businesses.
