BREAKING: Insiders Reveal Clinton Foundation To CLOSE DOWN
Hillary Clinton is still in shock from her loss to Donald Trump in the presidential election on Tuesday. Now, things have gotten even worse for her, as experts are saying that her beloved Clinton Foundation may soon be forced to close it’s doors.
Daily Caller reported that law enforcement and philanthropy regulation experts say that the Clinton Foundation is now facing a barrage of investigations by Congress, federal regulatory agencies, state attorneys general and perhaps a probe by a special prosecution. Both Hillary and Bill Clinton have been accused of repeatedly using the foundation as a tool to fill their own pockets by using it to market official government favors, access and influence to wealthy individuals, corporations and foreign governments.
Former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova, who has investigated many corruption cases, told reporters that “there is a mountain of credible evidence that the foundation was being improperly run, had not filed appropriate filings with the IRS and state agencies. It’s clearly involved in a bribery conspiracy scandal with the Department of State.”
He added that under Trump’s presidency, a special prosecutor could be appointed to investigate the foundation, saying “I don’t think there’s any doubt it should be shut down.”
Matthew Whitaker, another former U.S. Attorney, thinks that what Clinton did in the State Department on behalf of Clinton Foundation donors needs to be investigated thoroughly.
“I think we need to be concerned that between 2009 to 2013, it appears the Clinton Foundation donors were given special access to the State Department. Somebody needs to look at every transaction and see if it was used for an improper purpose and potentially illegal unethical purposes,” Whitaker said. “They obviously need to get their house in order, to be more transparent about where the money is coming from, where the money’s going, and not try to play shenanigans with their reporting to agencies.”
Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who launched a series of congressional inquiries into the foundation, is expecting multiple congressional hearings about the foundation.
“I think you’re going to see judiciary and government reform committees do their work on it,” she said, adding that state attorneys general should also be involved.
