In the moments following the 2016 election, and the inevitable loss of doomed candidate Hillary Clinton, the American people were aching for justice.
They had learned far too much about “crooked” Hillary during the contest, not the least of which was damning information gleaned from the disclosures made by Wikileaks. These revelations exposed a series of corrupt dealings that spanned both the State Department and the Clinton Foundation, with schemes and scams capable of completely undermining our basic trust in government. Again.
Now, two years removed from the election, and just hours away from congressional testimony being provided by James Comey on the subject, a number of whistleblowers from inside the Clinton Foundation are speaking out, detailing a number of wrongdoings that they witnessed over the course of their time there.
Three people have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence of potential wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, including misappropriation of funds and allegations of quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Fox News on Thursday.
Meadows, the leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is also the chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations. The panel is set to hold an investigative hearing next week on the status of the Foundation case.Trending:U.S. Attorney John Huber was tasked to investigate the foundation last year by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The Clinton Foundation consistently has maintained that it is a charity, and never traded on Hillary Clinton’s position as America’s top diplomat, which she held from 2009-2013. The organization has a four-star rating from the watchdog site Charity Navigator and has touted its mission “to create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service.”
But that certainly hasn’t been the case when examining the organization more thoroughly.
However, The Hill reported Thursday that prosecutors working for Huber recently requested documents from a private investigative firm that also has been looking into the foundation. The firm, MDA Analytics LLC, reportedly has contacted the IRS, the Justice Department and the FBI’s Little Rock office with evidence from its own investigation.
Whether or not the truth ever emerges about the corruption within the Clinton Foundation has yet to be seen, but with Comey in the hot seat later today and whistleblowers finally finding the courage to come forward, it seems that we could be on the precipice of true revelation.
