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.

“To me, those would be the three most logical cities,” Ron Hosko told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Discrete information has made its way to local field offices and is being shared with their counterparts at the U.S. Attorney offices.”
Hosko is a 30-year veteran of the FBI and was the second highest ranking official behind director James Comey when he left the bureau in 2014.
Hosko was responding to TheDCNF report Friday that multiple FBI field offices and U.S. Attorneys in various cities are leading investigations about possible corrupt practices among Clinton Foundation officials, foundation donors, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and inner circle of aides during her years as America’s chief international diplomat.


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.

The United States Attorneys serve as the nation's principal litigators under the direction of the Attorney General. There are 93 United States Attorneys stationed throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. United States Attorneys are appointed by, and serve at the discretion of, the President of the United States, with the advice and consent of the United States Senate. One United States Attorney is assigned to each of the 94 judicial districts, with the exception of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands where a single United States Attorney serves in both districts. Each United States Attorney is the chief federal law enforcement officer of the United States within his or her particular jurisdiction.
United States Attorneys conduct most of the trial work in which the United States is a party. The United States Attorneys have three statutory responsibilities under Title 28, Section 547 of the United States Code:
  • the prosecution of criminal cases brought by the Federal Government;
  • the prosecution and defense of civil cases in which the United States is a party; and
  • the collection of debts owed the Federal Government which are administratively uncollectible.
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.
