If it wasn’t bad enough that the Clinton Foundation got its financial teeth kicked in almost as soon as Hillary lost power, the news just got worse.
Hillary likes to remind the world that she was part of the Nixon investigation, doesn’t she? And in the Nixon investigation, it was those infamous missing minutes of tape that became the big problem for him.
Hillary doesn’t have the same problem, exactly. But she does have a similar one.
She may have thought the Clinton Foundation was ‘out of the woods’ with respect to the IRS investigation. She and Bill both have, after all, had very *ahem* favorable treatment in investigations into criminal wrongdoing for decades.
But the judge, in this case, isn’t letting the Clintons off the hook so easily.
AU.S. Tax Court judge has ordered the Internal Revenue Service to reveal if it criminally investigated the Clinton Foundation, directing the agency to cure a mysterious “gap” in its records in the case.
…In it, Gustafson remanded the case back to the IRS Whistleblower Office (WO), saying the agency’s claim there was no criminal investigation against the Clinton Foundation “was not supported by the administrative record and thus constituted an abuse of discretion.”
“The WO must further investigate to determine whether CI [criminal investigative division] proceeded with an investigation based on petitioners’ information and collected proceeds,” the judge ruled. “… It seems clear we should remand the case to the WO so that it can explore this gap.” –JustTheNews
Why is this significant?
It is significant because of what is being alleged about the Clinton Foundation. Moynihan and Doyle testified before a Congressional Committee in 2018 that the Clinton Foundation was functioning as an unregistered foreign lobbyist.
The Clintons’ situation is been further complicated by the Durham investigation.
More recently, reports have emerged that Special Counsel John Durham is investigating whether an FBI effort to investigate the Clinton charity was wrongly thwarted by politics.
In his latest ruling, Gustafson suggested that the IRS whistleblower office was withholding important information for the case.
“There are facts and information, uniquely within the knowledge of the Whistleblower Office that need to be considered in connection with the resolution of the petitioner’s claim,” he wrote. –JustTheNews
