Stephanopoulos Will Not Moderate Republican Debate

By Mark Joyella 

Amid criticism from some Republicans over donations to the Clinton Foundation that had not been previously disclosed, ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos said he would not moderate a New Hampshire Republican debate ABC will carry in February.

In an interview with Politico, Stephanopoulos said he was a fair moderator, but would step aside. “I won’t moderate that debate,” Stephanopoulos said. He also clarified the amount of money he’d donated:

Stephanopoulos also said that he has given a total of $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. That figure represents charitable contributions of $25,000 in 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively. ABC News initially said that Stephanopoulos had given a total of $50,000 to the foundation.
