Clinton Foundation Spox: New FBI Investigation and Allegations Are “Politically Motivated”
The Justice Department launched an investigation into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, John Solomon reported.
Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State from January of 2009 to February of 2013.
Hillary Clinton’s spox Nick Merrill called the investigation a “sham” via CBS news:
Nick Merrill, spokesperson for Hillary Clinton, called the probe a “sham.”
“Let’s call this what it is: A sham,” Merrill said in a statement. “This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football. It began with a long-debunked project spearheaded by Steve Bannon during the presidential campaign. It continues with Jeff Sessions doing Trump’s bidding by heeding his calls to meddle with a department that is supposed to function independently. 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. It’s disgraceful, and should be concerning to all Americans.”
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton ripped the Clinton Foundation as being one big money laundering scam while Hillary Clinton was head of the State Department.
Fitton said the Clintons received over $48 million dollars for Bill Clinton’s speaking fees from foreign leaders and entities while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Fitton asked, “What were these entities seeking that they gave so much money to the Clintons?”
