CNN’s David Gergen Embarrasses Himself: Falsely Claims Clinton Cash ‘Discredited’
CNN’s David Gergen, a former aide to former President Bill Clinton who also worked for three GOP administrations prior to that, embarrassed himself on live television on Wednesday by claiming falsely that Peter Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash has been “basically discredited.”
Gergen, who was on a CNN panel to analyze presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump’s Wednesday speech on Hillary Clinton and the stakes of the 2016 presidential election, said he was “surprised” that Trump used Schweizer’s book because in his view the media has “basically discredited” it.
“I was really surprised he leaned as heavily as he did upon the Schweizer book, Clinton Cash—that book has been basically discredited,” Gergen said. “Other news organizations have looked at it and said he has no evidence, he has no evidence that shows money given by donors to the Clinton Foundation then resulted in actions by the State Department that favored those donors.”
Gergen also claimed later on CNN that the speech was “slanderous” and again claimed that the book has been “widely discredited.”
Gergen’s claim couldn’t be further from the truth and proves he clearly has not read the following mainstream publications that have confirmed key details in Clinton Cash: The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Reuters, CBS News, ABC News, and Politico. – READ MORE
