Senator Grassley Calls Out Clinton Foundation Corruption: Hillary Should be Implicated in Lawsuits
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is calling on plaintiffs of three lawsuits filed against President Trump who claim he violated the obscure ‘Emoluments Clause’ to also investigate Hillary Clinton since she received gifts and payment from foreign governments without consent of Congress.
The Emoluments Clause in the Constitution states: “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
Hillary Clinton has violated this clause in the Constitution for years yet nobody has launched an investigation. The Deep State continues to protect its own.
Via Circa News:
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley is demanding plaintiffs of three separate lawsuits filed against President Trump, who claim the president violated an obscure Constitutional provision known as the Emoluments Clause, should also consider investigating violations allegedly committed by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, since the basis of their lawsuits also implicate the former presidential candidate. The clause prohibits any person holding office from receiving gifts or payments from foreign governments without the consent of Congress and the chairman says the overwhelming evidence against Clinton should be made part of the ongoing lawsuits, which he says are both “partisan and narrow.”
The Republican senator from Iowa also urged members of Congress to work with his committee to determine “whether legislation may be necessary to force agencies to remedies when the Clause is violated” and provided a litany of evidence he suggests shows that joint tax returns filed by Hillary Clinton and her husband President Bill Clinton revealed millions of dollars in financial earnings from foreign governments and entities connected to foreign governments.
“The Clause must be enforced impartially, without regard for power, privilege, or party,” Grassley wrote. “Selective efforts to enforce the Clause smack of partisan political bias. A fair examination of Secretary Clinton’s financial benefits from foreign government entities and instrumentalities, by your reasoning, plainly shows that those benefits implicate the Clause. Yet your complaint[s] raised none of these concerns.”
$175,000 from a city government in Canada
$500,000 from the Abu Dhabi Global Environment Data Initiative
$500,000 from a Russian government-aligned investment bank
$200,000 speech allegedly supported by the Chinese government
Other examples of donations from foreign governments to Clinton Foundation, cited by Grassley
* Qatar donated $1 million to the Clinton Foundation on Bill Clinton’s birthday. While Clinton was secretary of state the nation was the recipient of approximately $4.3 billion – a 1,482 percent increase
* United Arab Emirates donated $1 million to the Foundation, and then saw approved military exports deals increase from $2.2 billion to $25 billion – a 1,005% increase.
*Saudi Arabia, Norway, and Australia each have donated $10 million, and received a 97% increase, 23% increase, and 198% increase, respectively.
