ABC News anchor failed to disclose $75,000 donation to Clinton Foundation

If you needed any proof of the cronyism that follows the Clinton family and their friends, look no further than ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos.

When Stephanopoulos interviewed Peter Schweizer about how donors to the Clinton Foundation may have influenced Hillary while she served as Secretary of State, the anchor failed to disclose that he had donated tens of thousands of dollars to the charity.

"So news broke yesterday that George Stephanopoulos wasn't exactly forthright in his conflict of interest when he was interviewing Peter Schweizer a couple of weeks ago," Glenn said.

Here's how that interview went down:

GEORGE: Do you know the Clinton campaign says you haven't produced a shred of evidence that there was any official action as secretary that supported the interest of donors? We've done investigative work here at ABC, found no proof of any kind of direct action. And an independent government -- Bill Allison, the Sunlight Foundation wrote this: He said, there's no smoking gun. No evidence that she changed a policy based on donations to the foundation. No smoking gun. Is there a smoking gun?

PETER: Yes, the smoking gun is in the pattern of behavior. Here's the analogy I would give you. It's a little bit like insider trader. I wrote a book on congressional insider trading a couple years ago and talked with prosecutors. Most people that engage in criminal insider trading don't send an email that says, I've got inside information. Buy this stock. The way they look at it is they look at a pattern of stock trades. If the person has access to that information, and they do a series of well-timed trades, that warrants investigation. I think the same thing applies here.

By the way, what's important to note is, it was confirmed on Thursday both by the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal that there are multimillion-dollar nondisclosed donations that were made to the Clinton Foundation that were never disclosed by the Clintons. This is a direct breach of an agreement they signed with the White House.

Stephanopoulos apologized this week for failing to disclose a donation of $75,000.

"I made charitable donations to the Foundation in support of the work they’re doing on global AIDS prevention and deforestation, causes I care about deeply," he said. "I thought that my contributions were a matter of public record. However, in hindsight, I should have taken the extra step of personally disclosing my donations to my employer and to the viewers on air during the recent news stories about the Foundation. I apologize."

"This is the pattern of deceit that is a problem for the Clintons," Glenn said on radio.

Glenn interviewed Peter Schweizer Friday morning about the pattern of corruption surrounding the Clintons, including ABC's seeming disinterest in their anchor's involvement.

"It goes to sort of the heart of what they profess, which is that they are these disinterested broadcasters who are trying to search for the truth. It's also coming out. I don't have all the details yet. It's also coming out that Stephanopoulos was a regular attender at Clinton events as well. It begs this question. How do they expect any level of partiality in covering something, especially like a presidential campaign if you're engaged socially with the people. You're sending money to the foundation. Because the subject of my interview with George Stephanopoulos was in part the Clinton Foundation. The very institution he was giving the money to," Schweizer told Glenn.

"To me, this is sort of the core of the problem in which the way Clintons operate. Which is this sort of blurring of roles. You don't have clear lines. And, you know, there's this sense of, everybody they get involved with ends up getting wrapped up in this same kind of conduct," he added.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
