FBI Reportedly Investigating Clinton Foundation

Federal authorities are actively investigating allegations of corruption related to the Clinton Foundation, the charity of Bill and Hillary Clinton, according to a USA official briefed on the matter.

The Hill reported that the investigation was launched in Little Rock, Arkansas under the oversight of the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office.

It's unclear precisely what, if any, new evidence ignited the current federal investigation, after initial inquiries had stalled prior to the 2016 election.

Clinton's chief spokesman, Nick Merrill, on Friday morning excoriated the Federal Bureau of Investigation for re-opening the case, calling the probe "disgraceful" and suggesting it was nothing more than a political distraction from President Trump's Russian Federation controversies.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked prosecutors to determine if a separate special counsel is necessary.

A senior law enforcement official said the Justice Department was exploring whether any issues from that probe should be re-opened but cautioned the effort was not at the stage of a full investigation. It ended partly because Justice Department officials feared that it might appear investigators were trying to hurt Clinton's presidential bid, according to published reports.

By that time, according to the people familiar with the matter, agents were already investigating the Clinton Foundation.

Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd wrote that part of what the department would do was assess whether "any matters now under investigation require further resources", though he said his letter should not be construed as confirming or denying any probe. Also under review is whether "tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws", the report said.

Hillary Clinton might still be wondering "What Happened" as far as losing the election goes, and now, her and former President Bill Clinton's foundation is under investigation by the FBI.

Trump has been increasingly focused on Clinton as the investigation into his alleged ties with Russian Federation has heated up. The goal is to distract from the indictments, guilty pleas, and accusations of treason from Trump's own people at the expense of our justice system's integrity. On the campaign trail, Trump's supporters frequently chanted "Lock her up!" at the mention of Clinton's name, and Trump specifically called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Clinton Foundation.

The FBI is looking into whether the Clintons did any favors for donors who contributed to their organization.
