DOJ Investigating Clinton Foundation for Pay-To-Play

The Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into the “pay-to-play” allegations about the Clinton Foundation during Hillary’s term as Secretary of State. The investigation is not being led by the DC ‘gang,’ but by the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI in Little Rock, Ark, according to Fox News. Whether that will help or hurt remains to be seen.

Numerous damning emails regarding the Clinton Global initiative/Clinton Foundation were published by various places during the Presidential campaign. The so-called “charity” allegedly was used to further Clinton friends and donors rather than act for the needy.

Furthering the DNC by granting favors

Hillary Clinton herself reportedly used the White House during the Bill’s term  to give people overnight stays in the Lincoln Room in exchange for donations to the DNC.  The ‘people’s house’ became a cash cow.

“The CNN study found 24 overnight White House guests who gave $100,000 or more to the DNC. CNN’s $5.4 million figure does not include money given to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, or any state party committees.”

Secretary of State

When she became Secretary of State, it was clear that access to Hillary was given to wealthy donors like the King of Bahrain, not to ordinary citizens. We wrote about that back in 2016.

Hillary’s Politics- Pay to Play

Judicial Watch listed a few email examples, (excerpt in part):

  • On Monday, July 6, 2009, Maureen White wrote to Abedin, “I am going to be in DC on Thursday. Would she have any time to spare?” Abedin responded, “Yes I’ll make it work.” White donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
  • In June 2009, prominent St. Louis political power broker Joyce Aboussie exchanged a series of insistent emails with Abedin concerning Aboussie’s efforts to set up a meeting between Clinton and Peabody Energy VP Cartan Sumner. Aboussie wrote, “Huma, I need your help now to intervene please. We need this meeting with Secretary Clinton, who has been there now for nearly six months. This is, by the way, my first request. I really would appreciate your help on this. It should go without saying that the Peabody folks came to Dick [Gephardt] and I because of our relationship with the Clinton’s.” After further notes from Aboussie, Abedin responded, “We are working on it and I hope we can make something work… we have to work through the beauracracy [sic] here.” Aboussie donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
  • On Saturday, May 16, 2009, mobile communications executive and political activist Jill Iscol wrote to Clinton, “Please advise to whom I should forward Jacqueline Novogratz’s request [for a meeting with the secretary of state]. I know you know her, but honestly, she is so far ahead of the curve and brilliant I believe she could be enormously helpful to your work.” Clinton subsequently sent an email to Abedin saying, “Pls print.” Jill and husband Ken Iscol donated between $500,000 and $1 million to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton subsequently appointed Novogratz to the State Department’s Foreign Affairs Policy Board.

CGI also was accused of operating for the benefit of private investors rather than ordinary people in a Wikileaks email release.

Clinton routinely met with foreign investors and even intervened on their behalf on occasion.  Whether or not their actions were actually illegal remains to be seen, but the perception is one of corruption. Will the DOJ actually dig deep enough? A little tour through the Guccifer 2.0  and Wikileaks email releases should do the trick.
