Two[+] Decades of Clinton

Postby Curtis » Tue Dec 11, 2018 10:36 pm

"Following allegations of sloppy accounting, potential tax fraud and pay-to-play, the Clinton Foundation will be under a Congressional microscope this week after three whistleblowers have come forward and agreed to testify - one of whom secretly submitted 6,000 pages of documents to the IRS and FBI in August of 2017, and all three of whom have submitted various documents to Congressional investigators.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, told Fox News's Martha MacCallum on Monday night that there are three whistleblowers who have spent the past two years investigating the Clinton Foundation, and have "explosive" allegations which they will share during Thursday testimony on Capitol Hill.

MACCALLUM: OK. With regard to the investigation, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, into the Clinton foundation, the DOJ designated John Huber to look into this. They have 6,000 pages of evidence that they’ve gone through. The foundation raised $2.5 billion, and they’re looking into potential improprieties.

What’s next on this investigation?

MEADOWS: Well, I think for the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.

Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive, Martha. And as – we just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year. But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there.

And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing.



As we noted in late November, the Clinton Foundation has seen donations plummet approximately 90% over a three-year period between 2014 and 2017.

While Hillary Clinton was Obama's Secretary of State, however, the State Department authorized $151 billion in Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation - a 145% increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration, according to IBTimes.

Meanwhile, John Solomon of The Hill reported on Tuesday that one whistleblower who submitted 6,000 pages of evidence through a firm composed of former federal law enforcement investigators, MDA Analytics LLC., has provided evidence of potential tax crimes as well as a "culture of noncompliance."

That submission made with the IRS, and eventually provided to the Justice Department in Washington and to the FBI in Little Rock, Arkansas, alleges there is "probable cause" to believe the Clinton Foundation broke federal tax law and possibly owes millions of dollars in tax penalties. That submission and its supporting evidence will be one focus of a GOP-led congressional hearing Thursday in the House.

The foundation strongly denies any wrongdoing. But it acknowledges its own internal legal reviews in 2008 and 2011 cited employee concerns ranging from quid pro quo promises to donors, to improper commingling of personal and charity business. -The Hill

In some instances the Clinton Foundation appears to have misled the IRS, or lied when filling out forms. In one instance the Foundation even retracted a bid to conduct fundraising in Utah after they refused to correct a filing error which state officials would not allow. "

When contacted for comments, the Clinton Foundation admitted their errors, but told Solomon they were akin to "minor traffic violations."

Everyone has known it is pay to play and it has only gotten worse under Trump. Clinton's campaign should have ran with the slogan that getting 2.5B in donations makes her smart.

Trust Curtis to keep us on the straight and narrow. After all, what could be more important than the loser of the 2016 presidential election and her ex-president husband. If I didn't know any better I'd say this is a textbook case of whatabout-ism, straight from the Putin playbook.

Having said that, if the foundation is proven to have funneled donations into someone's pocket I would like to see heads roll. After all, it's kinda like using campaign contributions to pay off hookers and pornstars.

The Clintons can rot, but honestly I don't give a rats ass about them or their foundation when the sitting President has a list of crimes sitting under his feet.

I find this case to be far more interesting: https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/02/politics ... index.html

Same reason they're having hearings and trying to attack Comey right before the House switches hands. "Allegations of" works for pretty much any crime because Republicans have alleged the Clintons did it. I'm amazed this still works on anybody because it's sooo old.
