Hillary in denial as FBI expands probe to include Clinton Foundation

The FBI is reportedly expanding its criminal investigation into Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton. In addition to its probe of her use of a private email server for official business, the agency is looking for any correlation between her role as secretary of state and donations made to the Clinton Foundation.

“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” an unnamed source told Fox News.

Clinton denied the claims to Des Moines Register chief politics correspondent Jennifer Jacobs.

Clinton slighting the FBI’s delving has little relevance — the agency is not required to inform anyone that they may be the target of an investigation.

Fox News reported:

The development follows press reports over the past year about the potential overlap of State Department and Clinton Foundation work, and questions over whether donors benefited from their contacts inside the administration.

The Clinton Foundation is a public charity, known as a 501(c)(3). It had grants and contributions in excess of $144 million in 2013, the most current available data.

Inside the FBI, pressure is growing to pursue the case.

 

“Many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation,” an intelligence source told Fox News, and FBI agents would be “screaming” if a prosecution is not pursued in this case.
