It appears that the IRS is getting ready to open an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and their dirty dealings. Color me highly skeptical here, just as I was over the FBI looking into Clinton’s violations of the Espionage Act and her email scandal. I will say this is unexpected, but I suspect it is diversionary somehow in nature.
With the release of Clinton Cash and the widespread viewing of the movie, this has got to be a major thorn in the side of Clinton. I don’t however, think it will be her demise.
From The Federalist Papers Project:
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen referred congressional charges of corrupt Clinton Foundation “pay-to-play” activities to his tax agency’s exempt operations office for investigation, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
The request to investigate the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation on charges of “public corruption” was made in a July 15 letter by 64 House Republicans to the IRS, FBI and Federal Trade Commission (FTC). They charged the foundation is “lawless.”
The initiative is being led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican who serves as the vice chairwoman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which oversees FTC. The FTC regulates public charities alongside the IRS.
The lawmakers charged the Clinton Foundation is a “lawless ‘pay-to-play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years and should be investigated.”
The IRS’ July 22nd reply came only a week after the House Republicans contacted the tax agency. It arrived to their offices Monday, the first opening day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
“We have forwarded the information you have submitted to our Exempt Organizations Program in Dallas,” Koskinen told Republicans.
The Exempt Organization Program is the division of the IRS that regulates the operations of public foundations and charities. It’s the same division that was led by former IRS official Lois Lerner when hundreds of conservative, evangelical and tea party non-profit applicants were illegally targeted and harassed by tax officials. So, believing that they will do anything at all to really expose Clinton and prosecute her is laughable.
The Clinton Foundation is a massively corrupt pay-to-play entity. It is a money-laundering outfit that feeds the Clinton dynasty. It’s about as criminal as you can get and for the most part has been untouchable. If the IRS was truly non-partisan, the Clinton Foundation would be nailed and both Hillary and Bill Clinton would be in prison. But, since the IRS is basically an enforcement arm of the Progressives, look for all of this to be sanitized and swept under the White House rug.
