Once again, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest referred to the State Department and Clinton Foundation to answer any questions about recent allegations that Hillary Clinton approved of a massive uranium transfer to Russia in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees for Bill Clinton.
When reporters ask the White House about the Clinton Foundation’s scandals, they refer them to the State Department. When the State Department is asked about Clinton’s apparent conflict of interest, they refer the media to the Clinton Foundation. And when the press makes its way over to the Clinton Foundation, the office refers them back to the White House. Throw in the Clinton campaign pointing in all directions and reporters are caught in a game of government hot potato.
Earnest played the same song and dance for ABC’s Job Karl when he directed a line of questions towards a memorandum the Clinton Foundation was forced to sign before Clinton could become Obama’s Secretary of State.
