Leslie Gelb Allowed Hillary Clinton to Read Story Before Publishing

By    |   Wednesday, 01 Jul 2015 07:22 PM

Pulitzer Prize winner Leslie Gelb admits he allowed Hillary Clinton's team to read a profile he wrote on the then-secretary of state, but says it was only for fact-checking, Politico reports.

Among the batch of 3,000 Clinton emails released Tuesday by the State Department is a note fundraiser  Lynn Forester de Rothschild who told Clinton that Gelb wanted to do a profile on her featuring "a day in your life, when you meet with members of Congress and international figures. He wants to show the impact you are having domestically and internationally."

Rothschild said Gelb would give Clinton a veto over content and "looked me in the eye and said, 'she will like it'."

Gelb denied Rothschild's characterization, telling Politico, "Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn't say such things — and never did. This was a piece for Parade. Parade has never done a hit job on anyone. My piece was to be a day in the life ... not likely to go into in-depth evaluations. And the piece didn't go much beyond Parade papp."

Gelb said the "veto power" line was "bull****," but he did let them look at it for fact checking.

"But as I remember, I made no changes," Gelb said. "Only changes were from Parade editors, all modest and forgettable."
