George Robert Stephanopoulos (born 1961) is a far-left American propagandist and former White House Communications Director involved in numerous liberal smear campaigns against victims of sexual assault. He served as a media adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential race and later as press secretary and communications director in the Clinton Administration. Prior to his work with Clinton, he served as Executive Floor Manager to then Democratic House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt.
After leaving the Clinton White House, Stephanopoulos was hired by ABC News as a supposed "unbiased journalist," Chief Washington Correspondent, co-host of Good Morning America and moderator of ABC's Sunday morning news show, This Week. When granted an interview, President Donald J. Trump called him as a "little wise guy" for his penchant to create and promote fake news narratives.
White House years
FBI special agent Gary Aldrich reported and Stephanopoulos confirmed, after the 1994 Republican takeover of the U.S. House of Representatives led by Newt Gingrich, the Clinton White House ran a dirt-digging operation out of the Office of the White House Chief of Staff. "They hired upwards of 36 lawyers to staff the operation to handle 40 different cases," Aldrich, who worked at the White House at the time, said. "Once it became known that they had such an operation, then the blackmail itself took place." Stephanopoulos publicly stated there would be a "scorched-earth policy" and everyone with "skeletons in their closet" would be exposed. CNN reported private divorce papers of Newt Gingrich were indeed removed from what was alleged sealed storage at the Carroll County, Georgia courthouse, "when he (Gingrich) became the center of attention" in 1994. The documents later were made public by CNN.
