Hillary Clinton has a long record of shady activity.
She has found herself in countless scandals during her time in office.
And she could be in jail right now if it weren’t for one shady thing Obama did.
For many years, the Clinton Foundation has been front-and-center in much of the scandals surrounding Hillary Clinton.
As Secretary of State, it is highly speculated that Hillary used the Clinton Foundation to accept massive amounts of money from the world’s elites in return for influence.
And the FBI was on her tail for this.
The Department of Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz contends that the Obama administration shut down FBI efforts to investigate the Clinton Foundation.
The investigation was being run because of “suspicious activity” between a foreign donor and the Clinton Foundation.
As the investigation was being conducted, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe received a phone call from someone in Obama’s Justice Department, who urged him to cancel the investigation.
It appears the phone call worked, and the investigation was shut down.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“The Department of Justice Inspector General report on the “lack of candor” by FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe also documents for the first time the Obama administration’s effort to shut down the bureau’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation, according to a review of the report by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.
The inspector general (IG) confirmed in its long-awaited report released Friday that in 2016 the FBI had ongoing field investigations of the Clinton Foundation in New York, Los Angeles, Little Rock, Arkansas and Washington, D.C. The multi-city investigation was launched when agents found “suspicious activity” between a foreign donor and Clinton Foundation activity in the Los Angeles area, as TheDCNF reported in August 2016.
The report, authored by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, an Obama appointee, chronicles the Justice Department’s effort to shut down the FBI’s investigation Aug. 12, 2016. The pressure allegedly came in the form of a phone call to McCabe from a Justice Department principal associate deputy attorney general (PADAG) who pressed McCabe on the continuing investigation. The IG did not identify which PADAG made the call.
It was important the pressure for ending the investigation was issued in a phone call and not in a written document, former FBI assistant Director Ronald Hosko told TheDCNF.
“They did it in a phone call, which is maybe a little more difficult to serve up as evidence,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. Hosko said that by giving a verbal order, the Justice Department “chose not to document it by design.”
“It makes it harder to reconstruct. But that might be part of the goal, right?” he noted.”
It is significant that the Justice Department contacted McCabe by phone.
If it had been done through email, it would be much easier to reconstruct the evidence, but phone calls are not as readily accessible.
