Karl to Earnest: Can You At Least Acknowledge That Hillary Didn't Live Up To Memorandum Of Understanding?


ABC news reporter Jonathan Karl pushes WH press secretary Josh Earnest on Hillary Clinton rumors.

JONATHAN KARL, ABC NEWS: We now know that some $2 million in donations that came essentially from Uranium One to the Clinton Foundation that were not disclosed at the time.

Can you acknowledge that that did not live up to the standards that were expected based on the Memorandum of Understanding between Hillary Clinton and the administration?

JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE: In terms of compliance with the Memorandum of Understanding, I would refer you to the State Dept.

Or to Sec. Clinton's team who I'm sure would be happy to talk to you about this.

JONATHAN KARL: But you made it clear at the time that donations were going to be made public, this is not some promise that Hillary Clinton made off to the side, this is an agreement with the White House, the president, so I'm just saying we now know $2 million in donations from Uranium One while this transaction, even aside the approval of the transaction, the fact that you had such a large donation that was not disclosed, that lived up to the standards? Forget Hillary Clinton, for the president?

JOSH EARNEST: What is clear, as is noted in the New York there is no evidence to indicate that donations had any impact on this particular policy.
