This was sort of inevitable. No sentient being ever saw the Clinton Foundation as anything other than a way to provide the Clintons with tax free income. No one ever thought that the Clintons and their inner circle were not enriching themselves by trading on Hillary's position as Secretary of State. In fact, it is my contention that a significant number of the 1300+ classified emails held on Hillary Clinton's private email server were US government information that was being used as currency to enrich Sid Blumenthal, his deceased crony Tyler Drumheller, and others.
Now FoxNews' Catherine Herridge has a lot more:
EXCLUSIVE: The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has expanded to look at whether the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News.
This new investigative track is in addition to the focus on classified material found on Clinton’s personal server.
"The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed," one source said.
The development follows press reports over the past year about the potential overlap of State Department and Clinton Foundation work, and questions over whether donors benefited from their contacts inside the administration.
The Clinton Foundation is a public charity, known as a 501(c)(3). It had grants and contributions in excess of $144 million in 2013, the most current available data.
Fox News is told that about 100 special agents assigned to the investigations also were asked to sign non-disclosure agreements, with as many as 50 additional agents on “temporary duty assignment,” or TDY. The request to sign a new NDA could reflect that agents are handling the highly classified material in the emails, or serve as a reminder not to leak about the case, or both.
This, if true, is non-trivial. First and foremost, no one in the State Department can contest public corruption in the way they have fought tooth and nail to protect Hillary from the effects of her duplicity. Second, where they might claim the email scandal was a partisan nothingburger, no one is going to defend a crook. What is an indication of how serious this is, is the virtual absence of Hillary defenders from the fray over the last email revelations. Even Media Matters manages only one article in defense.
Despite the claims by the FBI director that he will follow the evidence wherever it leads, I'm too old and too well-used to continue to believe in leprechauns. I can't imagine this lawless regime allowing an indictment of Hillary Clinton to even be considered given that all the US Attorneys are Democrat political appointees. I can, however, see Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills and the flouncing herd of grifters that follows Hillary like stench follows a honey-wagon
