“Most transparent transparent adminstration ever”… he said. “Not a smidgen of corruption” .. he said. Oh, sure.
The Obama administration can rush to judgement, and find wrongdoing absolutely everywhere. Except where it is obvious.Ferguson? We want JUSTICE! Trayvon? “If I had a son…” Beer summit? Bad Cop, no donut!
But when source after source gives credible evidence pointing to corruption in the Clinton Foundation? Nope. Nothing to see here.
Not that this should surprise us. Some of their own appointees dodged taxes.
But it’s gotten so bad that even CNN is forced to report it:
CNN reports that three FBI field offices were in agreement and wanted an investigation launched earlier this year, but the Loretta Lynch-led DOJ pushed back pointing to a preliminary investigation done on the Clinton Foundation a year before, after the book ‘Clinton Cash’ was released.
At that point, not enough evidence was there to launch a case, and some at the Justice Department feared the request for a fresh investigation would look politically-motivated, especially in light of the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
The FBI wanted to pursue a lead from a bank that tipped them off to suspicious activity from a foreigner who had donated to the Clinton Foundation.
These new conversations shed light on how intertwined Clinton’s State Department was with her family foundation.
In one highly-cited example, the now-former head of the Clinton Foundation, Doug Band, reaches out to Clinton’s top State Department aides, including Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, in April 2009 and notes that it’s ‘important to take care of’ a particular person whose name has been redacted.
In another exchange that year Band requests that Abedin and Mills put Gilbert Chagoury, a longtime buddy of Bill Clinton’s who donated millions to the Clinton Foundation, in touch with ‘the substance person re Lebanon’ at the State Department.
‘It’s jeff feltman,’ Abedin replied, according to the emails. She was referring to Jeffrey Feltman, who was then the U.S. ambassador to Lebanon. ‘I’m sure he know him. I’ll talk to jeff,’ she said, seemingly following orders.
