This past Sunday we saw another determined “journalist” attempting to get to the truth about the Clinton Foundation’s fundraising and Hillary’s rogue and now vanished email server. On ABC’s This Week, George Stephanopoulos interviewed Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash,” and it was epic — and by “epic” I mean “embarrassing” (transcript from ABC News via American Thinker):

STEPHANOPOULOS: As you know, the Democrats have said this is — this is an indication of your partisan interest. They say…

SCHWEIZER: Well…

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. [Check the trunk of your car, George… the email server might be there – DP]

SCHWEIZER: Well, but — but it’s not up to an author to prove crime. I mean do you think that when people first started looking at Governor McConnell or they started looking at Menendez, that they immediately had evidence?

You need subpoena power. You need access to records and information. You need access to e-mails.

There’s all sorts of things that you can do. You can’t leave it up to an author to say that an author has to prove a criminal case.

Yep, ABC News’ chief political correspondent — who spent years as a Clinton staffer — questioned the objectivity of the author of a book about the Clintons because he used to work for Bush. Stephanopoulos had to willfully bury so much self-awareness before conducting the interview that he was still covered in dirt and holding the shovel.
