According to financial statements, The Clinton Foundation saw their contributions dry up a staggering 90% over a three-year period between 2014 and 2017.
The Clinton Foundation charity is currently under investigation for a variety of allegations by the DOJ, FBI, and IRS – including whether favors were handed out while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, also known as “pay for play.”
The Clinton-led State Department authorized $151 billion in Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation – a 145% increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration, according to IBTimes.
According to the IBTimes:“American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and also made personal payments to Bill Clinton for ‘speaking engagements.’ Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.”
Then there was that $1 million check Qatar reportedly gave Bill Clinton for his birthday back in 2012, in which the Clinton Foundation confirmed that it had accepted.
“The committee almost never met, and when it deliberated it was usually at a fairly low bureaucratic level,” Richard Perle said. Perle, who has worked for the Reagan, Clinton and both Bush administrations added, “I think it’s a bit of a joke.”
According to a November 2016 report by the Dallas Observer, the Clinton Foundation has been under investigation by the IRS since July, 2016,
Meanwhile, according to The Hill, the Arkansas FBI field office has been investigating allegations of pay-for-play and tax code violations:
The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said. –The Hill
According to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), House Republicans will hear testimony on December 5 from the prosecutor appointed by now former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate allegations of wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation.
Meadows told Hill.TV on Wednesday:
“Mr. [John] Huber with the Department of Justice and the FBI has been having an investigation – at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th.”
Meadows also told The Hill that the committee is “just now starting to work with a couple of whistleblowers that would indicate that there is a great probability, of significant improper activity that’s happening in and around the Clinton Foundation.”
