The publisher for the controversial book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer issued a handful of corrections to its e-book on Tuesday.

HarperCollins, the book’s publisher, said in a statement that it corrected “seven or eight” passages that have since been proven inaccurate. 

Politico first reported that Amazon emailed those who already purchased the e-book to tell them "significant revisions" had been made to their copy.

The news site's analysis of the book found that those passages include Schweizer quoting a fake press release and that some imply former President Bill Clinton was paid to speak by an Irish billionaire who worked with the State Department.

“This is a routine notification that Amazon sends to previous version purchasers whenever there is an updated file,” a HarperCollins official told The Hill in a statement.

“The changes that Amazon is referring to as significant are actually quite minor. We made 7-8 factual corrections after the first printing and fixed a technical issue regarding the endnotes. This global fix may have made the changes appear more extensive than they were.”

Clinton Cash prompted a slew of questions regarding Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonThe road not taken: Another FBI failure involving the Clintons surfaces DHS cyber agency to prioritize election security, Chinese threats ABC chose a debate moderator who hates Trump MORE’s conduct as secretary of State, implying that she worked to benefit Clinton Foundation donors from her official perch at the department. A number of Republican presidential candidates have criticized Clinton over those accusations, and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who is also running for president, has called for an investigation.

But Clinton allies have pushed back, with Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon arguing on the campaign’s rapid response site that the book is “full of sloppy research and attacks pulled out of thin air with no actual evidence."
