The Clinton family, is now actively being investigated by the FBI. Now, the Justice Department has initiated a new inquiry regarding the workings of The Clinton Foundation. This foundation, has since become questionable, to where the foundations financial acquisitions are going.
Many have wondered about this, for quite some time now. Allegedly, The Clinton Foundation has 85.8% programs being made with 11% towards management and general, 2.7% towards fundraising and 0.5% for provision for uncollectible pledges. Money is believed to have been funneled through the foundation and later used for alternative purposes.
It was announced on Friday, by the Trump administration, that the Clinton Foundation has been ongoing for months now. A newspaper (The Hill) reported that agents located in Little Rock, Arkansas, have recently conducted interviews there, while looking for potential witnesses. It was later announced that the Justice Department “has launched a new inquiry” into The Clinton Foundation. Administration announced that this was quietly re-opened several months previously.
The Republican party in Congress, have consistently nudged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to re-examine numerous issues related to Hillary Clinton. This includes her private email server, among other shady questionable practices. Republicans, have also stated that the Justice Department should use other counsel to complete these inquiries.
There also was the matter of a letter written on November 13th, to the members of Congress by Stephen Boyd who is a Department of Justice attorney for congressional affairs. This letter, was aimed at senior prosecutors, to further examine the current status of several different issues. Some of the inquiries included if any current matters required further resources. This may well include human resources and/or funding for further findings from The Clinton Foundation scandal.
Also, prosecutors would examine allegations that donations to the Clinton Foundation were tied to a 2010 decision by the Obama administration. This pertains to the administration allowing Russian nuclear agency to buy Uranium One, a company that deals with uranium in the United States.
The letter released, appears to be a response towards President Trump’s statements made days earlier, stating that he was disappointed with Mr. Sessions for not investigating Mrs. Clinton. It is now unclear, whether or not the F.B.I. and their renewed interest in the Clinton Foundation, would be activated for investigation once again by officials located in Washington.
With the F.B.I.’s decision to take these additional steps forward, it is sure to outrage some Democrats, who consider the investigation an attempt, to cater towards President Trump and his administration by the hand of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
