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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
