A spokeswoman for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s signaled Thursday that his impending presidential campaign isn’t prepared to make an issue out of George Stephanopoulos’s $50,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation.

“We’ve always found him to be fair,” Lis Smith told The Daily Caller, referring to the ABC News anchor and former Clinton White House spokesman.

According to The Washington Post, O’Malley will likely join the Democratic primary against Hillary Clinton on May 30. He’s reportedly set to make the announcement in Baltimore after having criss-crossed the early primary states since January.

Stephanopoulos did not tell viewers of the donation when he interviewed Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash,” which suggests donations to the Clinton Foundation and hefty speaking fees paid to Bill Clinton helped influence decisions made by Hillary Clinton during her tenure at the State Department.
