    Experts Agree: The Clinton Foundation Won’t Survive

    Experts Agree: The Clinton Foundation Won’t Survive

    Hillary Clinton is the most corrupt politician in the history of America. It took the powerful political skills of a true outsider like Donald Trump to defeat her, along with the political establishment and biased mainstream media.

    But now, the question remains: What happens to the Clinton Foundation? It first received its nonprofit status when started during the fundraising efforts for President Bill Clinton’s presidential library in Little Rock, Arkansas. But the group quickly became the place for foreign dictators and despots to buy access to Hillary Clinton while serving as President Obama’s Secretary of State. The activities at the foundation are exactly why Clinton ran a private home email server- She didn’t want public record of the business deals she was making, which made her family wealthy.

    It was a money laundering operation which allowed unlimited foreign money into the American political process, and sold our government to the highest foreign bidder.

    Now, under a Trump administration, experts agree that the Foundation’s days are numbered:
    A former senior law enforcement official told The Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday that all 10 FBI agents in the Little Rock field office who are assigned to public corruption cases are working full-time on the foundation. The Clinton Foundation was founded in 1997 in the Arkansas capital for the sole purpose of building and operating the Clinton Presidential Library. New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Washington, D.C., are the other FBI offices in the probe.
    Former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova, who pursued many corruption cases, told TheDCNF, “there is a mountain of credible evidence that the foundation was being improperly run, had not filed appropriate filings with the IRS and state agencies. It’s clearly involved in a bribery conspiracy scandal with the Department of State.”
    DiGenova believes a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate the foundation, adding, “I don’t think there’s any doubt it should be shut down.”
    Matthew Whitaker, another former U.S. Attorney, thinks Clinton’s actions at the State Department on behalf of Clinton Foundation donors require close attention. Whitaker is executive director of the non-profit government watchdog, The Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust.
    “I think we need to be concerned that between 2009 to 2013, it appears the Clinton Foundation donors were given special access to the State Department. Somebody needs to look at every transaction and see if it was used for an improper purpose and potentially illegal unethical purposes,” Whitaker told TheDCNF. “They obviously need to get their house in order, to be more transparent about where the money is coming from, where the money’s going, and not try to play shenanigans with their reporting to agencies.”
    Rep. Marsha Blackburn expects multiple congressional hearings on the foundation. “I think you’re going to see judiciary and government reform committees do their work on it,” she told TheDCNF. Blackburn, who launched a series of congressional inquiries into the foundation, said state attorneys general should also be involved. State attorneys general typically have jurisdiction in any state where the Clinton Foundation solicited funds.
    Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican who is vice chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, said the Clinton Foundation should reform itself or go out of business.
    “The foundation should be given an opportunity to either to come into compliance with the law or shut their doors,” she said.
    Hillary Clinton broke America’s laws and threatened our national security. Outside of this election, it’s clear that she deserves to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Short of Presidential pardon, nothing should stop Hillary from Felony criminal convictions.

    Instead of putting her in prison, which they will never do, the settlement to the American people should be to seize those assets! If those funds were indeed intended for "charity"...then start by using it to send supplies and birth control to Haiti and send their illegals back. NO money into corrupt hands this time. 100% goes to the good of the people and audited for every penny!

    No US taxpayer funds! We have given them billions.

    Trump administration could mean new life for Clinton Foundation probe

    Posted: Nov 11, 2016 12:50 PM CETUpdated: Nov 11, 2016 2:21 PM CET

    By Evan Perez CNN Justice Correspondent

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The FBI has spent more than a year looking into the Clinton Foundation without getting beyond the starting gates. That could soon change.

    Investigators at the FBI's New York office, who unsuccessfully argued for months that they should be allowed to open a full-blown investigation of the foundation, could find a more friendly audience in a Donald Trump administration Justice Department.

    The President-elect railed during the closing weeks of the campaign against the relationship between foundation donors and Hillary Clinton's work in government as "corrupt."

    He promised there would more investigations of the Clintons if he were elected.

    Soon, top officials he appoints at the Justice Department will have the power make that happen.

    And the FBI investigators may have more ammunition to make their case with stolen emails from Clinton aides released in recent weeks by WikiLeaks.

    The emails showed internal fights over the foundation between Chelsea Clinton and a top aide to her father, Doug Band, who helped run the foundation. Chelsea Clinton, according to the emails, was concerned about possible conflicts of interest and problems related to Bill Clinton's paid speech-making business, dubbed "Bill Clinton Inc." The dispute prompted the foundation to conduct an internal audit of its activities. Band hit back at Chelsea Clinton, according to the emails, suggesting she used the foundation to pay for her wedding.

    Rudy Giuliani, considered a contender for attorney general or other top cabinet post, according to people familiar with Trump transition planning, said Thursday that the new president will have to make a decision on what to do about his promises to hire a special prosecutor to investigate matters related to Clinton.

    "It's been a tradition in our politics to put things behind us," Giuliani said on CNN's "New Day." "On the other hand, you have to look at how bad was it? Because suppose somebody comes along a year from now and is alleged to have stolen $50,000 from a charity -- and (Clinton) was never investigated for hundreds of millions."

    Messages left with the Clinton Foundation seeking comment were not returned.

    Career prosecutors at the Justice Department's criminal division and the public integrity section, as well as lawyers at the FBI, reviewed the requests earlier this year from FBI investigators to launch a full probe of the Clinton Foundation, according to law enforcement officials briefed on the discussions. The agents were told that they didn't have enough evidence to use more overt investigative methods, including seeking subpoenas, to open a full probe, the officials said. They were also told they could continue to gather information and revisit their requests if they found more evidence.

    The genesis of the FBI efforts date, in part, to allegations published in the 2015 book "Clinton Cash" by conservative writer Peter Schweizer.

    Agents were unhappy at being told they didn't have enough evidence, and that fed some of the tensions over Clinton-related matters inside the FBI in recent months between the New York field office and FBI headquarters, law enforcement officials say.

    Trump repeatedly referred to the WikiLeaks emails -- in particular the issues raised by Band -- as proof that investigators should take a deeper look.

    "Mr. Band called the arrangement unorthodox. The rest of us call it outright corrupt," Trump told an October campaign rally. "In fact, the Clinton Foundation even hired a law firm to find out if their pay to play scheme would jeopardize their charitable status with the IRS."

    Trying to use the stolen emails released by WikiLeaks to try to build probable cause for further investigation could present legal hurdles for the FBI and the Justice Department.

    At least some of the emails are labeled as "attorney-client privileged," meaning they have the legal protection of confidential communications between lawyer and client.

    And then there's the fact the US government has declared that the emails were stolen by Russian intelligence in a cyber-hack of the email account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

    Earlier this year, prosecutors in Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara's office used revelations from the Panama Papers, stolen and leaked legal documents from a law firm in that country that helped the rich create offshore financial shelters, as cause to issue subpoenas to individuals and firms named in the documents. Other lawyers at Justice Department headquarters debated whether the stolen materials could be used predicates for an investigation.

    CNN's Dan Merica contributed to this report.
