The probe into the extremely shady dealings of the Clinton Foundation (CF) has expanded quickly to five offices including Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Little Rock, Ark. The field offices in New York, Little Rock and Washington, D.C. are coordinating with the US Attorneys in those cities. The CF has operations in Haiti, the Caribbean, Latin America and South America.
“Los Angeles agents had picked up information about the Clinton Foundation from an unrelated public corruption case and had issued some subpoenas for bank records related to the foundation” and described the unusual field office initiative as “at times a sprawling cross-country effort.”
Polls taken over the last several days shows Clinton’s support from the voters has fallen dramatically and the Trump campaign is pointing to the fact that early voting for Trump surpasses Romney in 2012. The polls suggest that voters are much more concerned about the emails than the Clinton campaign is willing to admit.
From The Daily Caller:
An unidentified senior Justice Department official “voice(d) his displeasure at finding that New York FBI agents were still openly pursuing the Clinton Foundation probe,” according to the WSJ.
The Justice Department official “was pissed off” that the Foundation investigation was ongoing.
“Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?” FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe asked the unidentified official, as quoted by WSJ. “Of course not,” the unnamed official reportedly replied.
Other agents “further down the FBI chain of command, however, said agents were given a much starker instruction on the case: ‘Stand down,’” WSJ reported.
The D.C. field office was “probing financial relationships involving [Terry] McAuliffe before he became a Clinton Foundation board member,” according to WSJ.
McAuliffe, who is now Virginia’s Democratic governor and is a former Democratic National Committee chairman, was one of the first members of the Clinton Foundation’s board of directors and is the longest-serving director.
McAuliffe is among the most effective Democratic Party fundraising agents and is a part of the Clinton’s inner circle. McAuliffe also gave the Clintons $1.3 million, enabling them to buy an 11-room mansion in New York.
