White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest did not give a definitive answer about whether Hillary Clinton gave special treatment to countries and organizations that donated to the Clinton Foundation during her time as secretary of state.
An upcoming book called Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich by Peter Schweizer, is an investigation into donations to the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments.
This book has returned attention as to whether Clinton gave special treatment to foreign countries that made donations to the Clinton Foundation.
ABC News White House correspondent Jon Karl asked Earnest, "Can you assure us that there was absolutely no favorable treatment given to donors of the Clinton Foundation?"
Earnest did not give a definitive answer and said there was no "tangible" evidence to indicate Clinton provided special treatment to donors.
"I’m not going to be in a position here where every time someone raises a spurious claim that I’m going to be the one to sit down here and say its not true," Earnest said.
