Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ronan Farrow said in an interview with Fox News that Hillary Clinton's staff attempted to withdraw her from an interview for a book on his foreign policy over concerns over his coverage of Harvey Weinstein.
Farrow, who worked for Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State, told Bret Baier Wednesday on "Special Report" that he wanted to interview her when he had other top American diplomats for the book.
"Like everything in the book, Bret, this is handled very modestly," said Farrow, who is now applying for his latest work, Catch and Kill.
