TIME’s political columnist Joe Klein says the Clinton Foundation “is the Bain Capital of this cycle” for Hillary Clinton.

Klein, appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Tuesday, explained that “the activities of the Clinton Foundation are going to be far more damaging” to Clinton than her e-mail scandal.

“Bain didn’t hurt Romney during the primaries but it killed him during the general,” Klein insisted. “I think that the Clinton Foundation, the fact that he [Bill Clinton]  gave 12 speeches for more than $500,000 and nine of them were given while she was secretary of state, I think we’re going to hear more about that.”

Host Mika Brzezinski asked, “Were those speeches for other countries that she was dealing with?”

Klein replied immediately, “Yes.” Brzezinski admitted, “I don’t know how that happens.”

Klein also said that Bernie Sanders can not win the Democratic nomination and the only way for Joe Biden to have a chance is if “he came in with Elizabeth Warren as his running mate, maybe he could.”
