FBI Revives Clinton Foundation Probe Amid Politically Charged Claims

The FBI has revived a dormant investigation into the Clinton Foundation following politically charged accusations of corruption.

Agents at the FBI’s field office in Little Rock, where the foundation has offices in the William J. Clinton Presidential Center, is focused on whether donors received favors or special treatment when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state from 2009-13, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Hill, report.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office is overseeing the investigation, which quietly became active again a few weeks ago after it stalled before the November 2016 presidential election.

What’s unclear is what prompted investigators to revisit the case.

The Gazette: Feds Must Investigate Clinton’s Potential Pay-to-Play

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been our neighbor since 2012. He’s lives at the Federal Correctional Institution in Englewood, where he will stay for at least eight more years.

Blagojevich traded in his government job. Six of his 17 felony convictions involve asking a campaign worker to pressure a hospital executive for a donation. The governor had arranged a health care grant for the hospital and prosecutors proved he wanted quid pro quo for his re-election campaign.

Throughout much of Hillary Clinton’s boring email scandal, Americans have lacked a clear motive for the former secretary of state’s extraordinary measures to hide government emails. Her lawyers deleted tens of thousands of conversations as an FBI investigation commenced.

Suddenly, the email scheme seems less mysterious. The legal foundation Judicial Watch claims deleted emails reveal quid pro quo arrangements linked to donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Wall Street Journal last month detailed a possible quid pro quo arrangement with a Swiss bank that paid money directly to the Clinton household.

The Washington Post summarized a few of the email revelations:

“A sports executive who was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation and whose firm paid Bill Clinton millions of dollars in consulting fees wanted help getting a visa for a British soccer player with a criminal past.

“The crown prince of Bahrain, whose government gave more than $50,000 to the Clintons’ charity and who participated in its glitzy annual conference, wanted a last-minute meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

FBI Expands Investigation of Hillary Clinton Over Her Public Charity

The FBI is expanding its investigation of Hillary Clinton to determine whether her use of a private email account amounted to public corruption, Fox News reports.

The FBI has been focusing on the mishandling of classified information, but three intelligence sources said the investigation now includes whether there’s an “intersection” between the Clinton Foundation work and State Department business.

“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” one source said.

Clinton said she was not aware of an expanded investigation.

The Clinton Foundation, a public charity that raised $144 million in 2013, may have benefited from her work when she was secretary of state, the sources said.

“Many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation,” an intelligence source told Fox News.
