    Actually, they used Penguin Random House for their book deal which doesn't seem to match, however Pearson is the parent company of PRH, they are slippery like a snake. https://www.pearson.com/news-and-research/announce...

    No quid pro quo. Just simple political corruption. Move along nothing to see here.

    It's possible. But it's too late to impeach President Obama.

    People that write best selling books make money. Hope that cleared this up for you. PS: Obama doesn't decide where the department of education spends its money.

    Obama personally did that?  Link please, and not to a Russian bot's twitter feed.

    Yeah, but it's not a foreign government, it wasn't Quid Pro Quo for help in an election, and he's not PRESIDENT anymore.  Not all Quid Pro Quo is illegal. It happens every day in business and the real world. It's WHAT the quid pro quo is that makes it illegal or not.

    No. The timing is all wrong. Ask your supervisor for better questions.

    Pearson Publishing has nothing to do with the government or working with a foreign nation trying to get dirt on an American citizen for political gain.

    That was awarded in 2006, three years before Obama took office.
