Indictment(s) Likely from FBI's Clinton Foundation Probe


Indictment(s) Likely from FBI’s Clinton Foundation Probe

by Stephen Lendman

On November 2, Fox News anchor Bret Baier said two sources, reportedly with “intimate knowledge” of the FBI’s Clinton Foundation probe, indicated one or more indictments are likely ahead - claiming “a lot of evidence.”

Whether Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are vulnerable remains to be seen.The FBI’s White Collar Crime Division is handling the investigation, with lots of indictable evidence aside from what WikiLeaks revealed.

According to one unnamed source, “(t)here is an avalanche of new information coming in every day.” FBI agents are “actively and aggressively pursuing this case,” conducting extensive interviews.

According to Baier, barring obstruction, one or more indictments are likely. Ongoing for around a year, Attorney General Loretta Lynch reportedly tried shutting the probe down.

Deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe refused, calling it a “validly predicted investigation.” Senior Trump communications advisor Jason Miller issued a statement, saying:

“Today’s reports that the FBI has an open investigation into the Clinton Foundation shows the true extent of the corrupt Clinton cash machine.” 

“Even more concerning than that is the fact that the Obama Department of Justice is refusing to allow an overt investigation until after the election.” 

“Not only is it completely disqualifying for a candidate for president to be facing two separate FBI investigations less than a week before the election, but the fact that the Obama Administration is so blatantly trying to tip the scales of justice toward Clinton should give every American pause.”

On November 2, the Wall Street Journal said “(a)gents, using informants and recordings from unrelated corruption investigations, thought they had found enough material to merit aggressively pursuing the investigation into the (Clinton) foundation that started in summer 2015 based on claims made in a book by a conservative author called ‘Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.’ “

Days ahead of November 8, little more is likely to come out until after Obama’s successor is known. If Hillary, as seems likely, it’ll be the first time a president-elect, shortly to be inaugurated, will be facing multiple investigations for criminal wrongdoing, subject to possible indictment.

What does that say about America’s political system too debauched to fix.

Wednesday on my blog site, I posted images of Richard Nixon and Hillary Clinton - with attribution to others for posting it on my Facebook page. It states the following:

Nixon: I deleted 18 minutes of recordings and had to resign as president.

Hillary: I deleted 30,000 e-mails and I’m running for president.
