As Twitchy reported Sunday, a new book by Peter Schweizer entitled “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” is on the way.

Because the book covers Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest addressed it this afternoon at the White House press briefing, saying that there is “not a lot of evidence” supporting Schweizer’s allegations. More or less than a smidgen? That has yet to be determined.

Hillary Clinton herself has now acknowledged the book’s existence, falling back on the old reliable claim that it’s nothing more than a distraction.

Well, it wasn’t a distraction for long, at least not today.
