As the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit activities while serving as Secretary of State continues, the nation waits in suspense to see whether or not she’ll actually be indicted by the Department of Justice. However, a new report spells serious trouble for the Democrat front-runner, and if it’s true could be a turning point for politics in our nation.
Over the weekend, the Huffington Post first published, then deleted a lengthy article stating that an indictment is coming for Clinton. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the story only add to the speculation that reporters at HuffPo know more than they’re letting on, and should terrify anyone working with the Clinton Foundation during the time for which it’s being investigated.
As we all know, the investigation itself should have been wrapped up in late 2015, but as more evidence has been uncovered, the criminal case into Clinton has been growing and has expanded far beyond its original charge. Now charges such as espionage, perjury, and influence peddling have been added to the mix, and should FBI Director Comey be able to prove the allegations, Clinton is going to be in some serious hot water.
The HuffPo report had the following to say about the current investigation:
Tens of millions of dollars donated to the Clinton Foundation was funneled to the organization through a Canadian shell company which has made tracing the donors nearly impossible. Less than 10% of donations to the Foundation has actually been released to charitable organizations and $2M that has been traced back to long time Bill Clinton friend Julie McMahon (aka The Energizer). When the official investigation into Hillary’s email server began, she instructed her IT professional to delete over 30,000 emails and cloud backups of her emails older than 30 days at both Platte River Networks and Datto, Inc. The FBI has subsequently recovered the majority, if not all, of Hillary’s deleted emails and are putting together a strong case against her for attempting to cover up her illegal and illicit activities.
A conviction under RICO comes when the Department of Justice proves that the defendant has engaged in two or more examples of racketeering and that the defendant maintained an interest in, participated in or invested in a criminal enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce. There is ample evidence already in the public record that the Clinton Foundation qualifies as a criminal enterprise and there’s no doubt that the FBI is privy to significantly more evidence than has already been made public.
It is a Federal Crime to negligently handle classified information under United States Code (USC) 18 section 1924. It is a Federal Class A Felony under USC 18 section 798. Hillary certified under oath to a federal judge that she had handed over to the state department all of her emails, which she clearly did not. In spite of her repeated statements to the effect that everything that she did with her home brewed email server as Secretary of State was above-board and approved by the State Department, the Inspector General Report vehemently refutes this claim. Hillary refused to be interview by the Inspector General’s office in their investigation, claiming that her upcoming FBI interview took precedent but it seems more likely that Hillary is more concerned about committing perjury or admitting to anything that can be used against her in a court of law.

One other thing to consider in all of this is that the FBI is also looking into whether or not the Clinton Foundation worked with The Hillary Victory Fund. If it’s found that it did, then the DNC itself could also be in jeopardy of accusations of either being an accomplice or being complicit in racketeering.
That’s some serious stuff right there, and if it’s all able to be proven by the FBI, there’s no possible way the Justice Department would be able to ignore it. Besides, anonymous agents with the FBI have threatened to leak details of their investigation to the public if Loretta Lynch tries to provide cover for Clinton by refusing to indict, which means that regardless of what happens legally with Clinton, her political career will be all but over with.
In other words, this entire situation is a complete mess brought on by Clinton believing she’s above the law, and there’s a good chance she’s going to end up taking a bunch of people down with her. Oh well, couldn’t have happened to a better person (sarcasm).
