The FBI Launches New Clinton Foundation Investigation Into Any Pay-to-Play Politics or Other Illegal Activities (VIDEO)
NOW FOR THE REAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO CORRUPTION …
The shoe might finally have dropped on the Clintons’. The Hill is reporting that the Justice Department has launched a new into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. A spokesperson for the Clinton’s has called the investigation a sham. However, as John Solomon writes, for years, “news media from the New York Times to The Daily Caller have reported countless stories on donations to the Clinton Foundation or speech fees that closely fell around the time of favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” It is obvious from the Hillary Clinton email investigations that the Clinton’s received preferential treatment from the Obama DOJ and FBI in how that was handled. Why wouldn’t we think the same of this? What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose as well. Let’s have an independent prosecutor investigate the Clinton Foundation and her private email server and have it be an unlimited budget, open ended investigation while having all of the investigative team be Trump supporters and anti-Clinton folks. Go for it.

The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.
FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.
The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.
One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.
HA, ARE THEY NOW BURNING THE EVIDENCE?
According to reports, a fire was reported about 2:50 p.m. at 15 Old House Lane, the residence where former President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton live in Chappaqua, NY. The Secret Service stated that the small fire started in the second-floor ceiling of a facility used by the Secret Service It is a detached structure behind the Clintons’ home. For all those who have are speculating that the fire was a result of the Clinton’s burning evidence, it appears that they were not at home at the time of the fire. Also, they have already destroyed the emails and evidence they were supposed to turn over to the FBI.
Burning Down the House

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Considering Second Special Counsel to investigate wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial Sale of a Uranium Company to Russia
WHATS GOOD FOR INVESTIGATIONS OF DONALD TRUMP AND THE RUSSIANS SHOULD BE GOOD FOR THE GANDER AND THE CLINTON’S AND THE RUSSIANS AS WELL …
Fox News is reporting that Attorney Jeff Sessions directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” requested by congressional Republicans, involving the sale of Uranium One and alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation, leaving the door open for an appointment of another special counsel. The Democrats can whine all they want, the questions is, why wouldn’t he? Why are the Clinton’s, Democrats and the Obama administration exempt from scrutiny? The questions is, who colluded with who? After a year of special counsel investigations by Mueller, there is nothing that ties the Trump campaign with Russia in some type of collusion during the election. But what if the Trump Foundation received $150 million form the Russian or one of Donald trump’s sons got speaking fees of $150,000 from the Russians? Think that would be big news? But that’s right, that was the Clinton’s who received such things from the Russians.
In a letter first obtained by Fox News, the Justice Department responded to July 27 and September 26 requests from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and other committee members, who called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the matters in question.
The letter comes on the eve of Sessions’ testimony before the same committee, scheduled for Tuesday.
“The Attorney General has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote.
“These senior prosecutors will report directly to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General [Rod Rosenstein], as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel,” Boyd wrote.
The Justice Department does not ordinarily confirm or deny investigations, and Boyd wrote that “this letter should not be construed to do so.”
The Justice Department’s letter specifically said that some of the topics requested by Goodlatte and other committee members were already being investigated by the department’s Inspector General’s office.
The letter specifically mentioned allegations related to the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe, including allegations that DOJ and FBI “policies or procedures” were “not followed in connection with, or in actions leading up to or related to” then-FBI Director James Comey’s public announcement to close the Clinton email “matter” on July 5, 2016, or the letter he sent lawmakers on October 28, 2016, about newly discovered Clinton emails, and that those “investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns — including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia — and has directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of the matters and report back to him and his top deputy, according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post.
The revelation came in a response by the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who in July and again in September called for Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate concerns he had related to the 2016 election and its aftermath.
The list of matters he wanted probed was wide ranging but included the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, various dealings of the Clinton Foundation and several matters connected to the purchase of the Canadian mining company Uranium One by Russia’s nuclear energy agency. Goodlatte took particular aim at former FBI director James B. Comey, asking for the second special counsel to evaluate the leaks he directed about his conversations with President Trump, among other things.
The definition of Irony …
The investigation was designed to be a political witch hunt against Donald Trump and that he was colluding with the Russians. It turns out that it is Hillary Clinton and everyone else that is colluding with the Russians, except Trump.
Bill Clinton Asked for State Department Permission to Meet with Russian Nuclear Official During Obama Uranium Decision
I AM SURE BILL CLINTON JUST WANTED TO DISCUSS HIS GRANDCHILDREN WITH THE RUSSIANS …
We have a Russian collusion scandal, but it is not what you have been lead to believe … There is yet more eye opening reporting from The Hill with regards to the real Russian corruption, bribery and interference with regards to the Clinton’s and the Obama-Russian uranium deal. As Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State during this deal, $235 million was so generously donated to the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One, former president Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock. Hmm, yeah, no quid pro quo, collusion, bribery or corruption here. Move along. Are you serious? The federal government has spend over a year looking into some Russian-Trump collusion scandal with the willing liberal media reporting at nauseam only to find there is not there, there. But there is a Russian corruption and bribery scandal with evidence, it just happens to involve Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton. Imagine that. Too bad this does not fit the liberals, LEFT’s, Hate-Trumpers and MSM’s agenda, otherwise we would have a scandal that dwarfs Watergate actually reported.
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.
The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.
Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.
“Requests of this type were run by the State Department as a matter of course. This was yet another one of those instances. Ultimately, President Clinton did not meet with these people,” Angel Urena, the official spokesperson for the former president, told The Hill.
Aides to the ex-president, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation said Bill Clinton did not have any conversations about Rosatom or the Uranium One deal while in Russia, and that no one connected to the deal was involved in the trip.
