George Stephanopoulos, interviewing Peter Schwiezer, author of “Clinton Cash” on his ABC Sunday news show.
Stephanopoulos: As you know, the Democrats have said this is—this is an indication of your partisan interest. They say—
Stephanopoulos: —you used to work for President—President Bush as a speechwriter. You’re funded by the Koch brothers. How do you respond to that?
Schweizer: Well, George, what did I do when this book was completed? I went to the investigative unit at the New York Times, the investigative unit here at ABC. I went to the investigative unit at the Washington Post. And I shared with them my findings, OK. These are not cupcakes. These are serious researchers and investigators. And they are confirming what I’ve reported. So people can look at the facts and—
Stephanopoulos: They haven’t come—they haven’t confirmed any evidence of any crime.
First, few expect to find evidence of a crime. The Clintons are too clever. Does anyone believe Hillary violated State Department rules about private email just to keep her yoga appointments private?
Second, Stephanopoulos neglects to mention that he was Bill Clinton’s campaign communications director and then White House communications director. So who has the greater conflict of interest?
You may recall that during the phony scandal over Bush firing eight US Attorneys, Stephanopoulos was grilling Republicans on his show. Yet he neglected to mention that Bill Clinton fired all 93 US Attorneys upon taking office.
