Did George Stephanopoulos coordinate with the Clinton Foundation before conducting his interview with “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer?
Two things have happened in the 24 hours since it was disclosed that ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation before he conducted his interview.
1.) The donation increased by half again as much as originally disclosed, bringing the total to $75,000, and, 2.) Stephanopoulos — surprise! — still has his job as the venerable and trusted voice of ABC News.
“Over the last several years, I have made substantial donations to dozens of charities, including the Clinton Global Foundation. Those donations were a matter of public record. But I should have made additional disclosures on-air when we covered the foundation and I now believe directing personal donations to that foundation was a mistake. Even though I made them strictly to support work done to stop the spread of AIDS, help children and protect the environment in poor countries, I should have gone the extra mile to avoid even the appearance of a conflict. I apologize to all of you for failing to do that.”
Actually, it wasn’t a mile, George, it was more like an inch, and it would have taken about five seconds to disclose that you were still in the tank for the Clintons just like you have been since you left your job in the White House and joined ABC News.
Why was directing personal donations to that foundation a mistake? Did you forget you worked for ABC News? Wasn’t the real mistake pretending to be objective about the Clintons, after you made the first donation?
Was that a mistake at all?
Wasn’t it intentional?
1: to blunder in the choice of <mistook her way in the dark>
2 a : to misunderstand the meaning or intention of : misinterpret <don’t mistake me, I mean exactly what I said>
b : to make a wrong judgment of the character or ability of
3 : to identify wrongly : confuse with another <I mistook him for his brother>
Was donating to your former boss’s foundation a blunder? Did you intend to donate to The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation but inadvertently write the check to Clinton Global? Three times?
It is doubtful that George Stephanopoulos will make himself available to anyone in the media, or at least anyone who cares, to answer specific questions about his incestuous relationship with the Clintons, but there are more important question to ask, if does.
Was he personally in contact with anyone at the Clinton Foundation or Hillary 2016 prior to the Schweizer interview?
Did he speak with anyone in either organization before the interview?
Is he now in contact with anyone from either of those organizations?
But maybe I shouldn’t be so pessimistic.
Who knows? Maybe someone who still cares about the truth will ferret out the answers to these questions.

YET ANOTHER REASON TO OPPOSE HILLARY: Like her cohort Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton told a group of supporters on Thursday that she will have a “litmus test” for her Supreme Court nominees: They must agree to overturn Citizens United.
