Early in the week, Special Counsel John Durham released a report that revealed the Federal Bureau of Investigation took action to close down four criminal investigations into twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her non-profit organization just ahead of the 2016 election. The request to shut down these probes was made by top agency officials who are closely connected to the Clinton family.
In other words, we have even more evidence revealing corruption and political bias over at the FBI, which is now being used as a weapon against the American people to try and silence any voices of dissent against the current administration and the progressive agenda as a whole. We either need to give the bureau a deep cleaning or shut it down for good. I’m okay with either of those options.
“The bombshell 316-page report showed that one of the investigations was launched in late 2014 before Clinton announced her presidential candidacy. The bureau received information from ‘a well-placed [source] that a foreign government was planning to send an individual to contribute to Clinton’s anticipated presidential campaign, as a way to gain influence with Clinton should she win the presidency,'” TheBlaze said in its report on the findings.
“FBI investigators obtained a document containing evidence of one alleged $2,700 illegal contribution that subsequently led to another ‘contribution of a significant sum of money.’ At the time of the alleged initial contribution, it was the maximum amount allowed for an individual donation,” TheBlaze continued.
Back in 2016, field offices located in our nation’s capital, Little Rock, Arkansas, and New York launched several criminal probes into the Clinton Foundation for “possible criminal activity.”
“The FBI’s Little Rock field office revealed in a January 2016 report regarding the Clinton Foundation that it found evidence that ‘large monetary contributions were made to a non-profit, under both direct and indirect control of [a] federal public official, in exchange for favorable government action and/or influence,'” the report explained.
A source, who wished to have their identity concealed, spoke with the agency and said that staff members employed by the Clinton campaign “were fully aware from the start” of the foreign contributions and “were okay with it.”
Check out more details from TheBlaze:
An anonymous FBI agent reported that the investigation was “in limbo” for several months because “everyone was ‘super more careful'” and “scared with the big name [Clinton]” involved. In addition, the agent described colleagues’ behavior around Clinton as “tippy-toeing” because “there was a chance she would be the next President.”
Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, all four FBI investigations were shut down, several at the request of top FBI officials with close ties to the Clinton family. During an FBI meeting in early 2016, former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe “initially directed the field offices” investigating the Clinton Foundation “to close their cases.” McCabe was described as being “negative,” “annoyed,” and “angry” about the probes.
The New York field office was directed to “cease and desist” its investigation “due to some undisclosed counterintelligence concern,” the report stated. The directive to drop the investigation was reportedly delivered to the field office on behalf of former FBI Director James Comey.
A Clinton Foundation spokesperson spoke with the Daily Mail, concerning the Durham report, saying, “emphasized what’s been clear for many years – there’s never been any wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation.”
“None of the Clintons have ever taken any money from the Clinton Foundation — in fact, the Clintons themselves are major donors to the Clinton Foundation,” the spokesperson continued.
Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz weighed in on the matter saying, “The Clintons had a team of people at the FBI running interference for them to avoid criminal culpability. These matters absolutely warrant additional exposure and review.”
The corruption of the Clintons truly knows no bounds, does it?
