Shocker: Turns Out Clinton Scandal Author Isn't Publishing A Jeb Bush Book!
April 25, 2015

See what chumps the New York Times editors are? "This guy's the real thing, he's going after both sides!" How's that working out for you, guys? As the nuns used to say: Lie down with dogs, rise up with fleas:

Journalists have suggested that conservative author Peter Schweizer's forthcoming book attacking Hillary Clinton is more credible because he will follow it up with a similar book examining Jeb Bush. But according to his publisher, no such book is in the works: Schweizer's reporting on Bush will be published on the website of his non-profit organization.

Over the past few days numerous media outlets have begun reporting on allegations Schweizer makes in his forthcoming book Clinton Cash about allegedly unethical ties between the Clinton Foundation and actions Hillary Clinton purportedly made as secretary of state.

Critics -- including Media Matters -- have noted that Schweizer is a Republican activist and strategist with a history of reporting errors. Pushing back against this narrative, Bloomberg Politics reported on April 23 that in contrast to the "left-wing clamor that Schweizer is simply out to get Hillary Clinton," "Schweizer is working on a similar investigation of Jeb Bush's finances that he expects to publish this summer."

Picking up the story, Politico reported that Schweizer "is reportedly working on another book that he expects to release in the summer. Only this time, he'll be writing about Jeb Bush." CNN likewise reported that the "book on Bush... would be published this summer."

But HarperCollins, the publisher of Clinton Cash, denies that any such book is in the works.
