FBI Launches New Investigation Into The Clinton Foundation

Exactly two weeks after we reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions instructed DOJ prosecutors to dig into the FBI's handling of the Uranium One investigation, we learn that the FBI has opened a new investigation of the Clinton Foundation launched by the DOJ - spearheaded by its Little Rock, Arkansas field office, according to John Solomon of The Hill

The probe will focus on pay-for-play schemes and tax code violations, according to law enforcement officials and a witness who wishes to remain anonymous. 

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. -The Hill

The witness who was interviewed by Little Rock FBI agents said that questions focused on "government decisions and discussions of donations to Clinton entities during the time Hillary Clinton led President Obama's State Department," and that the agents were "extremely professional and unquestionably thorough."

Also of note, as tweeted by WikiLeaks and reported by the Dallas Observer, the Clinton Foundation has been under investigation by the IRS since July, 2016 after 64 GOP members of congress received letters urging them to push for an investigation. The investigation is being handled by their Dallas office - far away from Washington insiders.

The Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas is an all purpose office complex, a bastion of federal bureaucracy located at 1100 Commerce St. Most people come for a passport or to get business done in front of a federal judge. But inside, a quiet review is underway that has direct ties to the raging presidential election: The local branch of the IRS' Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division is reviewing the tax status of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

A spokesman for both Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation did not return The Hill's calls or emails seeking comments, however they have previously maintained that the Clintons never traded government policy decisions for donations - calling recent focus on the issue a "conservative distraction" from President Trump's Russia probe.

Of primary interest to the FBI is likely the Uranium One deal, which would grant the Kremlin control over 20 percent of America’s uranium supply, as detailed by author Peter Schweitzer’s book Clinton Cash and the New York Times in 2015. The scheme allowed Russia to buy its way into the U.S. atomic energy business using the same Clinton Foundation pay-for-play relationship used by 16 countries, including Saudi Arabia – which received a 143% increase in weapons sales over the previous administration after donating to the foundation. 

A brief timeline of the Uranium One deal: 

  • Between 2008 – 2010, parties involved with Uranium One donated $145 Million to the Clinton Foundation. You can read more about the parties here.
  • June 2009, Russian State Nuclear Agency Rosatom (through a subsidiary) takes a 17% stake in Uranium One.
  • June 2010, Rosatom takes majority (51%) ownership of Uranium One, granting the Kremlin control over 20 percent of U.S. uranium – which Hillary Clinton’s State Department signed off on. The FBI uncovers massive bribery scheme before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approves deal.
  • June 29th, 2010, Bill Clinton meets with Vladimir Putin at his home in Russia. Later that day Clinton earns $500,000 for a Moscow speech to Kremlin-linked investment bank Renaissance Capital, which assigned a “buy” rating to Uranium One stock.
  • January 2013,  Rosatom State Nuclear Agency acquires the remainder of Uranium one and takes it private.

Also of interest in relation to the Uranium One deal is the fact that weeks after the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's email began, the FBI issued notices to every agency in the CFIUS to preserve recordsas discovered by Twitter researcher Katica while looking at FOIA-requested documents.

a

The agencies which received the request included the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Dept. of Treasury, the Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI James Clapper), The National Counter Terrorism Center, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Five days after the initial request, the same FBI agent sent another round of notifications to the same agencies, adding the National Security Agency (NSA) and the U.S. Secret Service (USSS). The next day, September 3rd, 2015, three more agencies were added to the preservation request: The CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Department of Defense (DOD)

At this point, every single member of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) which signed off on the Uranium One deal was served with a notice to preserve records.

Another report by The Hill from November reveals that an undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.

The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer. 

As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.

The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. –The Hill

Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.

WikiLeaks also revealed that the house of Saud heavily contributed to the Clinton Foundation, and reports surfaced that they funded 20% of Clinton's campaign.

a

Indeed, it appears that the Saudis - the old "pre-crackdown" Saudis of course, who wouldn't let women drive cars, were hoping for a significant return on their investment under a Hillary Clinton White House with John Podesta ostensibly in the Secretary of State role - similar to the 143% increase in weapons sales granted to the Kingdom and other Clinton-foundation friendly governments while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. 

As reported by International Business Times

The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration.

It's clear they had a lot riding on Hillary, some say in the hopes of co-opting the US military into an intervention in Syria to topple President Bashar al-Assad. The plan was regime change - with the goal of installing yet another Western friendly puppet government which would rubber-stamp a lucrative Saudi/Qatar pipeline through the country, exiting into the Mediterranean through Turkey - as opposed to a competing Russian / Iranian / Syrian pipeline.

a

Moreover, WikiLeaks exposed the fact that Saudi Arabia and Qatar funded ISIS - which then invaded Syria in an effort to co-opt the Arab spring and topple Assad. Recall that Hillary's plan was to join ISIS in this fight, starting with the institution of a "no fly" zone which would have put the United States in direct conflict with Russia.

There was also, of course, the $1 million check Qatar gave to Bill Clinton on his birthday, as disclosed by WikiLeaks, in which Amitabh Desai, the Clinton Foundation’s director of foreign policy, writes to senior Clinton Foundation officials explaining the “summary of key points” from his meetings with the “Ambassadors from Qatar, Brazil, Peru, Malawi, and Rwanda, in Washington, DC.”

Describing his meeting with the ambassador of Qatar, Desai wrote, “Would like to see WJC [William Jefferson Clinton] ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011.”

It gradually becomes clear that Hillary Clinton was set to use United States military assets at the behest of Saudi Arabia - first for regime change in Syria, and then in Saudi Arabia's confict with Yemen as the next logical target. It also emerged that Hillary's right hand woman Huma Abedin has had alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood which still haven't been investigated. John McCain, interestingly enough, chastised Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN) for pointing this out. In addition, a former Muslim Brotherhood member turned peace activist, Walid Shoebat said in an interview with Front Page Magazine:

The Abedins for decades were actually serving a foreign entity, the government of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs, and not American Democracy as President Obama stated. -FrontPage

With all that said, and there is much more (to scrape the surface read "Clinton Foundation Is Charity Fraud Of Epic Proportions", Analyst Charges In Stunning Takedown", it appears that the FBI should have its hands full re-investigating the Clinton Foundation. Perhaps Attorney General Sessions will even ensure that Clinton loyalists within the organization aren't responsible for things such as; reaching conclusions, recommending charges, closing investigations and changing language which would exonerate otherwise very illegal behavior.

Is that the reason that the fire department had to be called to the Clinton's house the other day....the oven furnace in their basement Chappaqua home overheated due to the sheer amount paperwork stuffed into it in a short period of time, having first been treated with a generous amount of incendiary propellant???

That would be Clinton Corruption Central .... likely everyone in that office owes their job to the Soros-Clinton-Obama Machine.  

I’m guessing that Sessions was too busy fussing about State marijuana laws to be interested in this sort of thing so the Little Rock office was chosen by the Mueller-Rosenstein duet.

 

 

Corruption!  It's what's for breakfast.

I'm having a problem believing in any real FBI reform and/or honest action so long as Sessions is still around as AG. Any look at the Clinton Foundation needs to be accompanied by a full forensic audit to look at all funds in versus out and compare funds in to those declared by foreign Governments and other overseas Legal Entities.

Before it even begins, this has the stench of a politically expedient cover-up by the Elites.

so much talk from the powerless point of view. like it's all the choice of the politicians. they wouldn't spend such relative fortunes seducing, propagandizing, focus grouping and polling us if we weren't, in some sense, important.

chances like this don't come every day, year or administration. hillary clinton didn't have a permanent inspector general during her entire tenure at the state department. may have been a part of taking the job. that she feels the need to burn down her outbuildings is, imo, a positive sign.

Those in the Deep State look at it (and themselves) as something separate, apart, a higher class & order of beings, something that must survive at any cost.

If it takes the Klintons in chains (minus the whips...lol), Strzok splitting rocks in a leper colony and Mrs.Sunstein stripped nekid and dropped head first onto BritishBob's pet rock of Gibraltar on live pay-per-view TeeeVeee, thats exactly what they will do.

Mark my words.

Bonus!

Senator Grassley gets his WTF! on over butt hurt Comey and "collusion" with Rosenstein ;-)

January 3, 2018

 

The Honorable Rod J. Rosenstein

Deputy Attorney General

U.S. Department of Justice

950 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.

Washington, D.C. 20530

 

Dear Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein:

 

            This Committee has previously written to the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the memoranda that former Director Comey created purportedly memorializing his interactions with President Trump.[1]  My staff has since reviewed these memoranda in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) at the FBI, and I reviewed them in a SCIF at the Office of Senate Security.  The FBI insisted that these reviews take place in a SCIF because the majority of the memos are classified."

https://www.grassley.senate.gov/news/news-releases/grassley-presses-jus…

In other words, Mr.Comey created classified government documents, then stole classified government documents, then compounded that by giving classified government documents to a friend (Professor Richman) for the expressed purpose of...having those classified government documents published...in order to...have a special prosecutor (Mueller) appointed.

Comey has already admitted to all of this, under oath.

More tax money wasted by the FBI.

The Clintons have a lot of wet workers on payroll, and until they can be identified and collared they will continue protecting their paymasters.

Has the FBI solved Seth Rich's murder yet?

There had to have been a group around that murder and they would prefer to avoid arrest. 

It must be awful cozy in all the rat nests now, but they will plan evasion and escape.

They must have been building nice fat bankbooks all this time and the money will be put to good use.

Look for them in some faraway place under a palm tree on the beach and sipping a pina colada.

Steady income, decent pension, and unrivaled job security for starters? The fact they get a badge, gun, and maybe the title of 'agent' is all extra awesome-sauce.

Basically more of the same reason why 'good' cops keep being cops even when they KNOW a big chunk of their coworkers and superiors are armed school-yard bullies who occasionally kill innocent people for the sheer rush of it.

Jail and the law is for little people according to the Clintons. Maybe Cancles is little after all. Still she moved her over 1 billion dollars clinton foundation bribe money offshore to the UAE shortly after she lost the election. These investigations are not going away.

FBI Launches New Investigation Into The Clinton Foundation

My response: The FBI "RANK and FILE" have had enough of the 7th floor shenanigans by the CLOWN BRIGADE (COMEY, MACABE, STROZCK, PAGE, etc..).

Go get them and lock them up!! We have now entered the ANGER phase.

It is time to restore the reputation of the FBI and make it better than ever before.

The Clinton Foundation is perhaps the world's largest money laundering operation operating under the guise of a charitable organization.

The tax records alone indicate the level of disgracefulness and undoubtedly criminal behavior. For instance, in 2013 they took in 143,000,000, but only paid out 9,000,000 in grants (of which 2,000,000 was simply transferred to the Clinton Global Health initiative while a drop in the bucket 150,000 went to the Mission of Hope Haiti), and 30,000,000 in salaries were paid out to guess who? 

In 2013 alone, four individual donors each paid the Clintons more than they paid out in all the grants for the year. What was all that extra money for?

I prefer to tune into "Sunday with Charles"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXu-LbgbByI

Charles Ortel and Jason Goodman have compiled an incredible amount of dirt on the Clintons.  More importantly, their compilation is organized and accessible in an easy-to-obtain fashion that is intended to help investigations like the ones going on by the FBI.  

Ortel reminds his listeners that there is a new sheriff on the block in the form of the new IRS head.  No Clinton holdover.

I'm a 'blackpilled tool' because I can see things as they are, not as I wish them to be? There has been plenty to go after most of these fuckers for years, and nothing has been done. The most likely outcome of this is for the same thing to occur that has occurred every other time we've seen a similar headline: nothing but hot air. You sound like a chump with your "this time is different" nonsense, because thats all you're saying.
