ABC / World News With Charles Gibson
"Hillary Documents: Many Overseas Trips Just Standard First Lady Tourist Fare: But Docs Fail to Give Details on Hillary's Last Days in the White House," by Brian Ross and the ABC News Investigative Unit. Ross interviews Sally Bedell Smith about the release of 17,000 pages of Hillary Clinton's White House daily schedule. Smith comments that "they need to be a lot more open. We need to see memoranda of conversations; we need to see decision memos." Smith adds that the documents only tell a small part of the story: "We're not seeing the dark side of the moon," Smith says. "We're not seeing those meetings that she had in private with key people, with contributors, with people that were seeking to influence certain policies. That seems to be entirely absent."
