Watch: WH Spox Criticizes ‘Conservative’ ‘Clinton Cash’ Author Peter Schweizer

Friday at the White House press briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl about Hillary Clinton’s failure to live up to the Obama’s administration’s disclosure rules she agreed to.

Earnest labeled the allegations from “conservative author” Peter Schweizer, author of the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash,” as “accusations that are not rooted or accompanied by any evidence.”

Earnest said, “I think the point is, I have been in a position where there have been other, to put it mildly, conservative authors that have launched written books based on what they purport to be serious allegations against the president of the Untied States, and I’m often in a position of responding to those incidents and trying to defend the president from accusations that are not rooted or accompanied by any evidence. My point is that right now that’s what is happening to Secretary Clinton.”
