Virginia Gov. on CNN: CNN ‘Owes Me an Apology’ for Inaccurate Reporting

mcauliffeDuring an interview on CNN this afternoon, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe scolded CNN and said they owe him an apology for what he called false reporting.

See, back in May, CNN was first to report on news that McAuliffe was being scrutinized by the DOJ and FBI for a donation he received from a Chinese businessman––a businessman who pledged $2 million to the Clinton Foundation a few years back.

At the time, people speaking for both McAuliffe and this other individual said they hadn’t been contacted. McAuliffe himself insisted the contributions were legitimate, and when CNN’s Erin Burnett brought the report up today, he said, “That story’s totally false. CNN was 100 percent wrong and they owe me an apology. This gentleman has never been under investigation.”

He said that news outlets should “get your facts right before you report them.”

McAuliffe went on to defend the good works of the Clinton Foundation.
