Dr. Salomon Melgen made a name for himself as a major Democratic Party donor over the last several decades. His commitment to the cause has earned him a photo op with President Obama and various donations to candidates and causes. His repeated donations to Senator Robert Menendez also came with flights to the Caribbean that are now under federal investigations.
Turns out that Melgen and his wife Flor have funneled money to Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well. Even more alarming the Florida eye doctor also made several payments to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham. The record, spanning back about two decades shows a consistent record.

He was also involved in receiving $400,000 in contributions to influence the pardon process of the Clinton White House.
All of these issues also call into play Hillary's judgement following her email scandal.
