August 15, 2015
On August 11th, it became publicly known that the FBI and US Attorneys were conducting an active probe into the Clinton Foundation and its known associated organizations. This news grabbed a hold quickly based off of first hand knowledge of the probe by Law Enforcement in the New York Southern District, led by US Attorney Preet Bharar.
According to the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) an experienced law enforcement contact advised DCNF of the probe on background (providing factual information without disclosing his/her name publicly). The information was also reported by Allen B. West. Both organizations tend to provide news that is generally under-reported, and Flash News Network (FNN) monitors such agencies and organizations for updates on a regular basis.
At the time of reporting on August 11th, there was a reasonable basis for reporting the investigation / probe as the source was documented as reliable. The articles remain on those two sites of origin, as well as on FNN, and will remain so long as the information remains factual.
On August 12th, DCNF added additional information, in another article, this time naming the law enforcement source. In part:
"Joint investigations by the FBI and various U.S. Attorneys of Clinton Foundation activities are most likely underway in Little Rock, Arkansas, Washington, D.C. and New York, according to a former assistant director of the FBI.
CONGRESS REQUESTING FBI INVESTIGATION
That isn't all however. This week, we learned that Congress will be provided the FBI "302" sheets, which essentially outline the interview they held with Hillary Clinton during the E-Mail investigation. FBI Director Comey insists that he wants to provide the American public with as much transparency into that investigation as possible, especially due to the high-profile status of the investigation, as well as the "no prosecution" recommendation following on July 6, 2016.
The State Department, in it's own investigation into the email situation with then Sec. Clinton, also is requesting to see the interviews with the FBI. As of now, the Department's Office of Inspector General is looking into any potential wrong-doings by either Sec. Clinton, or her underlings.
The "302" information is being provided as a result of the House Oversight Committee's request for "completing the investigative record" on the matter; closely related is the House Select Committee on Benghazi where they actually discovered the private email server where classified emails were sent and received in an unauthorized, non-secure location by Hillary Clinton.
Because of the testimony given by Hillary R. Clinton under oath at the Benghazi Hearings on October 22, 2015, Sec. Clinton was clear that she was not in possession of, nor sent, nor received any classified information on that private email server. We know at this time, that statement under oath was not factual. Therefore, members of Congress are now officially requesting that the FBI / Department of Justice look into the matter of whether Sec. Clinton committed "perjury" while giving false testimony under oath.
As it stands, we know as fact, Secretary Clinton did not testify honestly before Congress, nor was she honest during debates against then-opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
That leads us to another area of concern, which may be the issue of potential elections fraud against both Bernie Sanders and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) at large. Whether or not "Primary" elections fall within the scope of anything the FBI investigates remains a question we do not have the answer to just yet. However, with the amount of information flowing out from various sources, including the valiant work by Judicial Watch and the multiple Freedom of Information Act requests resulting in very damaging emails, as well as some such as "Wikileaks" that don't follow "US Laws" we may find out more information regarding the shady dealings at the DNC, as well as the Clinton Foundation.
If the reporting from DCNF and Judicial Watch is accurate, then there may be a real possibility that either Sec. Clinton, Former President Bill Clinton, or both, including associates that worked for Hillary Clinton at the State Department such as Cheryl Mills (Sec. Clinton's Chief of Staff / Attorney) and Huma Abedin (Sec. Clinton's go-to person for everything it would seem), may wind up being interviewed by the Justice Department once again, this time for either civil or criminal activities that have nothing to do with the Benghazi situation.
While the Justice Department has officially provided at least one statement that the Clinton Foundation is "off limits" to yet another investigation, it would seem that some within the FBI may not be satisfied with that approach. We agree.
Given the above, it seems more than reasonable, that if the paper trail that is being laid out in what appears to be a weekly basis due to the Judicial Watch FOIA requests (or the WikiLeaks email releases), then the US Attorney has an ethical obligation to follow those facts where they lead.
The facts, with regards to the Clinton Foundation, are very clearly outlined on the Judicial Watch website, and you can view it here.
On the surface, and at a minimum, there is what appears to be ample evidence tying the Clinton Foundation and the US State Department under the direction of Hillary Clinton in a "pay to play" scenario. This type of situation, depending on the facts, can lead to either criminal charges, civil litigation, or both. Therefore, given what we know at this time, and given that Congress is also making a request for the FBI to investigate Hillary Clinton on grounds of perjury, there does in fact appear to be the makings of a fairly solid case of fraud or at the very least, obstruction of justice. Recall that Hillary Clinton and her attorneys scrubbed her unsecured, unauthorized server of it's emails, 30,000 of which were kept out of reach of the FBI, Congress and the American Public as allowed by Federal Law.
