“… In his interview with Politico, Stephanopoulos apologized profusely for not disclosing his contributions, including during an interview last month with Peter Schweizer, whose book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich investigates donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign groups. Schweizer Thursday accused Stephanopoulos of a “massive breach of ethical standards,” according to an email he sent to Bloomberg.

Stephanopoulos said, “At the time I did not perceive the problem, but in retrospect, as much as I support the very good work that’s been done by the foundation, I should have gone above and beyond any guidelines to make sure that there wouldn’t be any appearance of any conflict.” He also told Politico that he now realizes he shouldn’t have donated money to the Clinton Foundation but did so “for the best reasons.”
