You’ll Never Guess Who Ran the Investigation Into Whether ‘Slick Willie’ (Bill Clinton) Got Paid for Pardoning Marc Rich

You won’t be surprised to learn who investigated Bill Clinton for the corrupt act of getting paid for pardons – hint – he got off.

President Trump shared this morning that the story in Big Media about there being a pardon investigation into President Trump is fake news. President Trump is not Slick Willie.

President Trump is not being investigated but former President Bill Clinton was investigated by the FBI for receiving money for pardons. 

The FBI released a number of documents related to the William J. Clinton Foundation. The bulk of these records come from a 2001 FBI investigation into the pardon of Marc Rich, aka Marcell David Reich, by President Clinton in 2001.  The FBI’s investigation was closed in 2005.   (Of course most of the material is heavily redacted due to personal privacy protections and grand jury secrecy rules says the FBI.)

Reuters reported on Mr. Rich upon his death:

To his critics, he was a white-collar criminal, a serial sanctions breaker, whom they accused of building a fortune trading with revolutionary Iran, Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya, apartheid-era South Africa, Nicolae Ceausescu’s Romania, Fidel Castro’s Cuba and Augusto Pinochet’s Chile.

In interviews with journalist Daniel Ammann for his biography, “The King of Oil”, the normally obsessively secretive Rich admitted to bribing officials in countries such as Nigeria and to assisting the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad.
