Real estate loan controversy

According to columnist Jack Anderson, in 1994, Stephanopoulos agreed to a $835,000 commercial real estate deal. This included a two-story apartment with an eyewear store. The loan came from a bank run by Hugh McColl. President Clinton once referred to as “the most enlightened banker in America,” at a below-market interest rate. According to a NationsBank commercial loan officer, this loan “did not fit our product matrix”. This is because banks normally only issue such loans on a short-term adjustable rate basis to customers with substantial financial resources.

The real estate agent for Stephanopoulos stated that “nobody making $125,000 could qualify for the property without the commercial property (lease).” If his name were George Smith and he didn’t work for the White House, according to a former top bank regulator who spoke to Anderson. Stephanopoulos’ realtor claims that without the rent from the commercial property, he would not have been eligible for the loan. One NationsBank source claims that because residential loans for mixed-use properties are so uncommon, neither the “NationsBank Mortgage Corporation’s Program Summary” nor its “Credit Policy Manual” address this topic.

Even on April 26, 2015, when interviewing Peter Schweizer, the author of the book Clinton Cash, which contends that contributions to the Foundation influenced some of Hillary Clinton’s decisions as Secretary of State. Stephanopoulos omitted to mention the donations. After the funds were made public by Politico on May 14, 2015, Stephanopoulos apologized and acknowledged he should have told ABC News and its viewers about the donations. The Washington Free Beacon, which had questioned ABC News about the situation, broke the story. The Clinton Foundation, which Stephanopoulos mentioned, had disclosed the donations as “an honest mistake”.

Jeffrey Epstein Association.

In 2010, Stephanopoulos joined Chelsea Handler, Woody Allen, Katie Couric, Prince Andrew, Charlie Rose, and Eva Andersson-Dubin at a dinner party hosted by convicted sex offender socialite Jeffrey Epstein. In response to outrage directed at people who attended the party after Epstein’s arrest in July 2019, Stephanopoulos denied being friends with Epstein and said that the party was their sole interaction. The New York Times quoted Stephanopoulos as saying: “That dinner was the first and last time I’ve seen him; I should have done more research. Going was a mistake.
