>Multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation, according to a former senior law enforcement official.
>The investigation centers on New York City where the Clinton Foundation has its main offices, according to the former official who has direct knowledge of the activities.
>Prosecutorial support will come from various U.S. Attorneys Offices — a major departure from other centralized FBI investigations.
>The New York-based probe is being led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s prosecutorial aggressiveness has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street insiders.
Colin Powell blamed:
>Her story to the FBI, according to notes turned over the Congress this week, was that former Secretary of State Colin Powell advised her to do so.
>But that, too, was a fib.
>It seems another email from 2009 recovered by the FBI reveals she had already decided to use a private email account when she asked Powell about his own practices, the New York Times reports today.
>Powell did not use a private, insecure email server during his tenure at the head of the State Department.
>Report: FBI Email Probe Now Investigating Potential Clinton Foundation Corruption
>The FBI is reportedly investigating the “intersection” of Clinton Foundation donations and State Department decisions during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State violated corruption laws.
>Three sources from the intelligence community confirmed the probe’s expansion to Fox’s Catherine Herridge. “The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” one source told Fox.
>Another intelligence source told Fox News that there was strong internal pressure from within the FBI to investigate the possibility of corruption. “…Many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation,” the source said.
>While Fox’s report doesn’t make clear exactly which “intersections” are being investigated, the details of the case bear a striking resemblance to allegations put forward in the 2014 book Clinton Cash. In the book, conservative author Peter Schweizer noted that foreign government donations to the nonprofit Clinton Foundation often coincided with positive State Department decisions in favor of those governments. Clinton herself has strongly denied that Clinton Foundation business had any effect on her decision-making
as Secretary of State.
