In her article for Sputnik: "Clinton Foundation shenanigans: How Hillary may find her way to jail" Ekaterina Blinova writes: What Prevents IRS, FBI From Catching the Clintons Red-Handed
So, what prevented the IRS and FBI from catching the Clintons given their suspicious charity record?
"Normally, the IRS holds enormous power when it chooses to investigate a charity whose public filings seem suspect," Ortel noted, adding that, similarly, the FBI has enough sophisticated resources to "scan" a charity.
There were reports that the Clinton Foundation had been investigated by the IRS and FBI but, surprisingly, these inquiries have not borne any fruit.
"The first investigation of the Clinton Foundation that I find mentioned in the public domain was conducted by the FBI from 2001 through 2005. ... During this time, two gentlemen now in the news were involved: James Comey was US attorney and then deputy attorney general of the Justice Department, while Bob Mueller was head of the FBI," Ortel said.
Maybe here is the answer to the question.
"The Clintons have had decades to insert their allies into the IRS, the FBI and Justice, as well as into key state government positions," the analyst noted, "So, until now, the Clintons, the Obamas and others have been able to blunt comprehensive inquiries that likely will expose bipartisan wrongdoing."
In this light, Donald Trump's words that former FBI Director Comey was "the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton" acquires a new meaning.
That also means that the Clintons charity case could become especially explosive given the fact that so many operatives, trustees, donors, companies and even foreign government officials could have been involved in the suspected fraud.
O.K., with all that being said, why hasn't the Trump DoJ opened an investigation into the Clinton Foundation - and the actions of the two principles, Mueller and Comey's, in the previous investigation. White washing a criminal investigation of a democratic president is hardly a resume highlight for leading the investigation of a republican president.
