The unbridled arrogance of the left exposed once again
George Stephanopoulos, chief political correspondent and anchor for ABC News, as well as the co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America” and host of the Sunday show, “This Week,” has been exposed as a high dollar donor to the increasingly questionable Clinton Foundation.
Among the myriad revelations to emerge regarding the donor list is the relationship between the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, a former Canadian mining company that was taken over by Russia in 2013 with U.S. government approval. From 2009 through 2013, Uranium One’s chairman donated a whopping $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary Clinton claims that there is “not an inherent conflict of interest” between the foundation donations and her decisions at the State Department. Foreign governments with much to gain also contributed.
Stephanopoulos, who had not previously disclosed his own donations, has now admitted he has given a total of $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. That figure represents contributions of $25,000 each in three consecutive years. ABC News initially said that Stephanopoulos had given a total of $50,000 to the foundation —- which has raised nearly $2 billion since it was founded in 2001
“Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer rightly refers to Stephanopoulos’ donations as a “massive ethical breach.” After Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee joined the chorus for him recuse himself from all 2016 coverage, he has finally acquiesced and will step aside.
This man is not a political novice. Prior to joining the network, Stephanopoulos was communications director and senior adviser for policy and strategy to President Clinton. He was also communications director on Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign.
This video montage shows Stephanopoulos shamelessly acting as Clinton Defender-In Chief.
Stephanopoulos apologized for not making the contributions public knowledge. The left-of-center network issued a statement saying he was wrong not to disclose the contribution though calling it “an honest mistake.’
In an interview Stephanopoulos acknowledged that while he made the donations “for the best reasons,” he now realizes he “probably shouldn’t have” done so, even as he nobly characterized his “substantial donations” as given to “stop the spread of AIDS, help children and protect the environment in poor counties.”
Would this newly selfless and benevolent, longtime Clinton political strategist, have come to that conclusion had he not gotten caught?
