Posted on 05/16/2015 5:26:27 AM PDT by Liz
Clinton Global Initiative archives lists ABC's Stephanopoulos as a notable member 2010-11. Breitbart News contacted The Clinton Foundation about Stephanopoulos membership, but the organization did not offer a response in time to be included in this story.
A FAQ explaining CGI membership states: Participation is by invitation only, limited to a select and diverse group of heads of state, CEOs, media voices, philanthropists and foundation heads, religious leaders, original thinkers, and those who run highly effective non-profit organizations. Membership usually costs $20,000 per year; however, the FAQ indicates that some complimentary memberships are available. ABC News told Breitbart Stephanopoulos did not pay a membership fee...because he moderated a panel for CGI events in 2010-11b.
.....according to publicly available sources, Stephanopoulos also participated in CGI events in 2005, in 2006, in 2007 and in 2009. Therefore, its possible he was considered a member for every year between 2005-2011, with the possible exception of 2008, when he does not appear to have taken part in any CGI event.
Stephanopoulos failure to disclose those donations when interviewing Peter Schweizer, author of "Clinton Cash," a book critical of the Clinton Foundation, has led to complaints about biased ABC coverage of the Clintons. ABC News continues to stand by him and will allow him to lead its political coverage in 2016.

So what's going in the world of politics that's not being reported right now?
This proves that the Fourth Estate are in reality the fifth column.
Noticed that PBS anchor Judy Woodruff tried to get ahead of the story by admitting to donating $250 cloaked in the same manner as Stephanoupolis, “for the poor children”.
Hoping to avoid revelation of her more active participation in this huge Soros like scheme.
Is any news agency represented by two contributor ?
Any direct contributions from the news agency itself?
Greta contributes through Samara Purse to Haiti did she also give to Clinton/Bush group? Waiting for her comments.
Typical.....when a liberal is in deep-doodoo, they always use "poor children" to save their sorry ***es.
Steffie's belated apology was a belly-laugher....apologizing b/c he was committed to HIV and deforestation.
DEREK HUNTER ASKED ON TOWNHALL.COM Why do the worlds wealthiest people and foreign govts feel compelled to give the Clinton Foundation hundreds of millions of dollars to do "charity"...... which the do-good Clintons constantly brag about.....that are in reality innocuous activities that thousands of charities already do......
These "Foundations" have become little more than political extortion.....shakedowns....prolly money laundering, tax evasion havens, as well.
Taxpayers MUST demand laws prohibiting public official and ex-presidents from forming foundations that are little more than personal ATM's. Opportunistic pols use con artist-type "shakedowns" to personally profit by selling access and favorable public policy "for a price."
Seems to me these ego-driven media types had to sign off.......to let their names and pics go public as members of “the club.”
Also allowed the “tolerant and compassionate” self-absorbed Clinton to brag about his exclusive members-only club.
Vote for no incumbent -— ever.
What these media types should say to save face, and possibly to tell their true intentions:
- We thought it was a legitimate charity.
But saying that is admitting the Clintons are crooks. And they still need ACCESS.

“Membership in CGI usually costs $20,000 per year; however, the FAQ indicates that some complimentary memberships are available.”
_______________________Question for FReepers_________________
If these media people were comped a $20K membership, isn’t that worse than paying into CGI? Ethically speaking, they accepted a valuable gift, which compromises any reporting on the Clintons, right?
THE DIZZYING FLOW OF MONEY THROUGH THE CLINTON FOUNDATION The Buckraking Clinton Foundation sucking up foreign donations is morally reprehensible----but the real crimes are what they do with the corporate/foreign monies once its in their Foundation's tax-exempt coffers.
When L/E scrutinized Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein's documents in the pedophile case, they found Bill Clinton and Doug Band listed with 21 phone numbers and emails.
Why does Clinton need 21 phone nos and emails? L/E recognizes multiple phone nos as the MO for tax fraud and money laundering.
NOTE: Doug Band is the head honcho of Teneo--one of Huma Abedin's clients AT THE SAME TIME she worked for Hillary at the State Dept. At one time, Teneo also employed Bill for $50,000 a month when Teneo was retained by Goldman Sachs'er Jon Corzine's MF Global....the firm where $1.5 billion went missing.
Then-Secy of State Hillary gave her close aide, Huma Abedin, State Dept special status" Abedin, reportedly had private email addresses on the Clinton email server system (underlining Democrats' greatest fear: the intersection of undisclosed foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clintons secret email address. Huma Abedin's sweetheart deal: (1) an outside private six-figure consultant at the State Department, and, (2) special government employee status, and worked a sideline---as a private contractor.
One of Huma's clients was Bill Clinton's Company----Teneo Holdings----self-described as a dual-track political/banking consulting firm that calls itself the next chapter in strategic advisory.
Here's then-US Sen Hillary cozying up to then-US Sen Corzine.
Jon Corzine was fresh out of Goldman Sachs executive suite, buying his NJ Senate
seat for $65 million; hen buying the NJ governorship. Out of office, Corzine ran a
hedge fund where $1.5 B went missing: he hired Abedin (and Bill Clinton
for $50,000 month).
Madoff got away with his scheme for some 25 years. Although he was jailed for running a Ponzi, Madoff's main purpose was helping billionaire tax-exempt foundations launder money and evade taxes.
Clinton's MO is to travel the globe..... his secret accounts are everywhere.
At $100 million, and more, Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra is one of the Clinton Foundations largest (cough) donors. Giustra's contributions go directly (1) to the tax-exempt Clinton Foundation, and, (2) to the Canada-based "Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership," which in turn sends money to the Clinton Foundation......(according to Canadian tax records researched by Clinton Cash author Schweizer).
Where else does Giustra send money?

You have compiled an enormous. Amount of material. Think what the FBI should have at their disposal with information from other investigations etc. All with the secret service looking over the Clinton’s shoulders
WIKI--Saban became involved in politics in the mid-1990s when he felt that support for Israel was slipping in the United States.
Saban has been a generous and consistent donor to the United States Democratic Party according to his mandatory Federal Election Commission filings.
Mother Jones, in an analysis of the major donors to the campaigns of 1998 election cycle, ranked Saban 155th among individual donors. Amy Paris noted that Saban's Clinton-era "generosity did not go unrewarded. During the Clinton administration, the entertainment executive served on the President's Export Council, advising the White House on trade issues."
The New York Times reported that Haim and his wife "slept in the White House several times during President Clinton's two terms." Saban remains close friends with the former President. Clinton described Saban as a "very good friend and supporter."
Saban contributed between $5 million to $10 million to the William J. Clinton Foundation.
During the 2000 presidential election, Saban increased his rank to 5th among individual donors with a combined contribution of $1,250,500. Matthew Yglesias wrote that "Saban was the largest overall contributor to the Democratic National Committee during the 20012002 cycle."  Saban's donations during that 20012002 period exceeded $10 million, the largest donation the DNC has received from a single source up to that time.
In September 2004, Hillary Clinton described Saban as a very good friend, supporter and adviser: "I am grateful for his commitment to Israel, to a just and lasting peace in the Middle East and to my foundation's work, particularly on reconciliation issues." In May 2007, Haim publicly declared his support for Clinton in 2008 presidential election.
In June 2007, Saban and Steven Spielberg co-hosted a Hillary Clinton fundraiser at the house of Peter Chernin, the President of News Corporation. According to the Los Angeles Times, the fundraiser brought in over $850,000.
In March 2008, Saban was among a group of major Jewish donors to sign a letter to Democratic Party house leader Nancy Pelosi warning her to "keep out of the Democratic presidential primaries." The donors, who "were strong supporters of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign", "were incensed by a March 16 interview in which Pelosi said that party 'superdelegates' should heed the will of the majority in selecting a candidate." The letter to Pelosi stated the donors "have been strong supporters of the DCCC" and implied, according to The Jewish Telegraphic Agency, that Pelosi could lose their financial support in important upcoming congressional elections.
On May 19, 2008, it was reported that Haim Saban had "offered $1 million to the Young Democrats of America during a phone conversation in which he also pressed for the organization's two uncommitted superdelegates to endorse the New York Democrat."
Saban, a long-time supporter and donor of many pro-Jewish and Israel causes, has stated his main goal in multiple interviews: "I'm a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel."
Haim Saban, a worldwide pioneer and leader in the
entertainment industry, is the Chairman and CEO of
Saban Capital Group, Inc.
