The video was released by Future 45, a super-PAC founded by the Adelson and Ricketts families, both of them major GOP donors.
 
The clip, called “Crook,” tears into Clinton for her email scandal and accuses her of political favors for donors.
 
"At least Nixon was right about one thing," the narrator says, before showing footage of Nixon saying “People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook.”
 
Future 45 is aiming to raise $25 million, according to CNN. The Ricketts family has donated $1 million, and the Adelsons are expected to pitch in $5 million.
