Investigation into Clinton Foundation launched – and it is getting serious

The walls are starting to close in on the Clinton family.

Now, more than one government, including the United States, is looking into the dealings of the Clinton Foundation and its possible criminal activities.

A New Investigation
In January, The Hill reported that the Justice Department had opened a new investigation into whether the Foundation engaged in any quid pro quo when Hillary Clinton served as the Secretary of State.

“The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes,” The Hill wrote.

“The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports,” it said.

Spokesmen for Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation derided the new investigation.

“Let’s call this what it is: a sham,” Hillary Clinton’s spokesman Nick Merrill said. “This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football. It began with a now long-debunked project spearheaded by Steve Bannon during the presidential campaign. It continues with Jeff Sessions doing Trump’s bidding by heeding his calls to meddle with a department that is supposed to function independently.”

“Time after time, the Clinton Foundation has been subjected to politically motivated allegations, and time after time these allegations have been proven false. None of this has made us waver in our mission to help people,” foundation spokesman Craig Minassian said. “The Clinton Foundation has demonstrably improved the lives of millions of people across America and around the world while earning top ratings from charity watchdog groups in the process.”

Some watchdog groups have given the Foundation a clean bill of health, but other investigators contend it is a pay-for-play scheme and critical part of Clinton empire.

National Review writes:

The Clintons get nothing from the foundation except free travel on chartered jets and first-class airline seats and hotel stays and, oh yes, control over a giant operating budget to steer to the charities and good causes that they prefer. Practically nothing!

The International Connection

First, multiple investigations have been launched into the Foundation because of the many indications that the organization operates primarily to benefit the Clintons. France, for instance, conducted an investigation between 2009-2011 that attempted to determine where millions of dollars of HIV/Aids assistance money (a good portion of which was given to the Clinton Foundation) was spent.

The Clinton Foundation has its tentacles in several nations, including Columbia and Haiti, and during the transition from the Obama administration to President Trump’s administration, it was reported that the new president wanted to pressure foreign governments to investigate.

“A source close to President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team told The Post that the new administration plans to pressure the US ambassadors it will name to bring up the foundation with foreign governments — and suggest they probe its ­financial dealings,” The New York Post reported.

“Haiti and Colombia will be key diplomatic posts for this ­because of all the money ­involved,” a source told The Post.

“In Haiti, recently leaked ­e-mails indicate “Friends of Bill” Clinton may have been given priority by the State Department as it prepared to spend some $10 billion in aid after a devastating earthquake hit the country in 2010. The State Department has denied any special treatment,” The Post reported.

“In Colombia, Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s philanthropic work in the country, where he acquired large parcels of land and set up an oil business, ­according to watchdog groups,” it said.

There are simply too many examples of corruption and the buying of favors to believe that the Clintons were merely operating a good-natured charity.
