|

At Thursday's press briefing, Major Garrett of CBS News asked White House's Josh Earnest if President Obama is satisfied and comfortable with what has been revealed about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation in the past week. Earnest said President Obama "continues to be very proud" of her service as Secretary of State.

"At this point there has not been any evidence presented that would prompt the president or anybody at the White House to be unsettled by Secretary Clinton's conduct as Secretary of State," Earnest said. "In fact, everyone here at the White House including the President continues to be very proud of her service to this country as Secretary of State of the United States."

MAJOR GARRETT, CBS NEWS: To follow up on Jonathan [Karl]'s question about the Clinton revelations [in regard to Kazakhstan], you seemed very nonchalant about them. And I'm just curious if you believe the president is comfortable everything he has learned in the past couple of days? And that to his satisfaction -- I'm not talking about the Secretary of State's compliance, this was an agreement with the President of the United States. To his satisfaction, do you believe that this administration, the President of the United States, is comfortable and satisfied with what's happened, what's been revealed and what the Secretary of State did in accordance to her agreement with him?

JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE: At this point there has not been any evidence presented that would prompt the president or anybody at the White House to be unsettled by Secretary Clinton's conduct as Secretary of State. In fact, everyone here at the White House including the President continues to be very proud of her service to this country as Secretary of State of the United States.
