What argument was used to support the accusation of a corrupt bargain between John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay?

The House of Representatives chose the president in early 1825, since no one got a majority of the electoral votes. Henry Clay had won three states: Kentucky, Missouri and Ohio which placed him 4th and removed him from consideration as president. He was speaker of the House and so was influential there. His views seemed closer to Jackson's than to Adams', but his three states all voted for Adams. After Adams won and appointed Clay as his secretary of state, jackson supporters believed that Clay had made a deal, making Adams president in exchange for his becoming secretary of state. In those days, secretary of state was considered to be a stepping stone to the presidency and Clay clearly wanted very much to be president.
