The Daily Caller reports that there is indeed an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. A probe is underway in three cities, Little Rock, Arkansas, New York City, and Washington, DC. At the heart of these probes is whether or not there were any illegal, or unethical, activities between the Clinton Foundation and employees of the Department of State. At least two of then Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton′s top staffers, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, were essentially ′double-dipping′, working both for the State Department and doing consulting work indirectly for the Clinton Foundation through a third-party contractor. Emails from both Mills and Abedin recently obtained by Judicial Watch by way of a Freedom of Information Act request show that they did work to provide special services and favors on behalf of the Clinton Foundation as part of their duties to the State Department.
At least one of the 44 emails obtained by the Judicial Watch FIOA request shows that Hillary Clinton was aware of the activity. The Daily Caller story indicates that three federal prosecutors and agents of the FBI in the cities mentioned above are investigating possible violations of federal laws and regulations. Officially, neither the FBI nor the DOJ would confirm that there are any criminal probes into the Clinton Foundation. But, given the revelations from Judicial Watch, it would seem that such investigations are warranted.
In New York City, the investigation is being led by U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara. He has a record of many convictions involving Wall Street, banks and hedge fund firms. Bharara took down two prominent New York politicians, State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, a Democrat, and Republican Majority Leader for NY, Dean Skelos. However, Bill and Hillary Clinton are two very large fish when it comes to political power. Indicting them will not be easy, let alone convicting either. Especially as Hillary is running for president.
This is just one more reason why we must elect Donald J. Trump in November. Not just to keep Hillary Rodham Clinton out of the White House, but to enable a proper, unobstructed investigation, and if needed, indictment and prosecution of anyone involved in graft and corruption. America is languishing in the stench of decades of corrupt politics. The Clintons are creatures of corruption. They have a long history of lies, schemes and abuses of power. If we are to ever make America great again, and have real justice, we need a demonstration of will to no longer tolerate nor accept criminality at any level. Especially at the White House. The Clinton Foundation scandal may be just the tip of a giant, nasty iceberg.
