Hillary Clinton’s Pastor Plagiarized Portion of New Book

posted on August 15, 2017

CNN’s Daniel Burke reports, “Hillary Clinton’s longtime pastor plagiarized the writings of another minister in a new book scheduled to be released on Tuesday.” The Rev. Bill Shillady’s Strong for a Moment Like This, which is based on messages that the United Methodist minister wrote to Clinton from April 2015 through December 2016, features emails that take paragraphs from the Rev. Matthew Deuel’s blog. Deuel said, “If my blog then, in turn, inspired Rev. Shillady and it was used to encourage Hillary Clinton, then praise God for that! Could it have been done differently? Probably.”
