Stephanopoulos Recuses Himself From GOP Debate

by John Nolte
May 15, 2015

In frantic damage control mode, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos ran to the safe zone of the left-wing Politico to announce the he will recuse himself from ABC’s February GOP debate in New Hampshire. He also admitted that the total amount he contributed to the Clinton Foundation was a whopping $75,000, not the $50,000, as originally reported.

The chief anchor and political correspondent at ABC News now admits he should never have donated money to the Clinton Foundation, and that he should have disclosed his donations to ABC News viewers.

As of now, probably as they gauge the fallout, ABC News stands by Stephanopoulos. He told Politico he intends to go back to business as usual, co-anchoring “Good Morning America” and hosting the Sunday news show ‘This Week.”

Stephanopoulos also said he would continue to cover the 2016 presidential election.

The seediness of everyone’s behavior in this matter — Stephanopoulos and ABC News — goes way beyond what unraveled the career of NBC News anchor Brian Williams.

    Shrillery’s shady, secretive e-mail account, her e-mail dumping, refusal to answer questions except for a few select softballs gently tossed underhanded, the secretive Clinton Foundation deposits from foreign
    Investors while and after Shrillery was head of the State Department.
    Now it comes out that Stephanopoulos, a lib-dem, who was going to moderate the primary debates (bad decision by the RNC, AGAIN!),
    Before the secret was out he donated big $ to the Clintons. He first says $50K, but then he’s outted that it was actually $75K.
    Oh sure, but its the tip of a huge iceberg.
    Lies, shady dealings, suspicious deaths all surround the Clinton Soviet Machine. Its a very dangerous, criminal dynesty.
    I pray America has awakened, and things aren’t SO rigged again that
    We have the repeat democrats stealing the election by voter fraud.
    (110% voter turnout in some counties. All votes counting democrat in others, ballot boxes missing, military votes not counted, etc.

    The three that began this comment forum talked about “The Steph” having “rights” to do what he wanted with his money. The following is a “right” that liberals, democrats, progressives and other “left-wingers” also have, but; never use until they’re arrested: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”

    This guy always has been a jerk and always will be. I place no value in anything he says because he is so biased and corrupt just like the Clinton’s.

  • Bob Stewart says:

    I wouldn’t let George within 100 miles of a debate nor would I respond to the media’s gotcha questions.

  • John VanderKelen says:

    Knowing George’s background why would Republicans agree to let Stepalloverus moderate in the first place. I would propose that Republicans who do so are either masochists or egomaniacs.

  • I Seigel says:

    We know that FOX is completely Fair & Balanced, and that NONE of their “newspeople” have any bias. If they were known to have any biases, what would Roger Ailes, the news CEO, do? Fire them, I hope.

    Is it a surprise that George S, the former press spokesman for the Clinton White House, would support his former employer? Doesn’t he have any Constitutional rights to donate money as he chooses? It’s his money, right? He’s not being accused of embezzling ABC’s money.

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

    SO those that run around screaming it is my right under the Constittuion do not think others may have rights as well? Does the Constittuion say no rights for Liberals? If so please indicate where that is stated.

      He only has one right under the new tea party republican party, he can own a gun. All other rights are subject to approval of the conservative pretend christian right.

    Stephanopoulos has always been a drag queen for the liberal left Clinton machine, nothing new here, just shows you the talent in the pool of ABC ‘s editorial staff.
    Look at the liar in the whitehouse who lies and lies, and lies, and they keep covering up for him and their own staff of liars, they all need asbestos pants to prevent the fires.
    “Liar, liar, pants on fire”…Ironically from a children’s book
