Turns out, Hillary Clinton may still be prosecuted after all.
FBI HQ reportedly instructed New York Field Office to continue with Clinton Foundation for corruption and money laundering.
The Daily Caller reported:
Officials at FBI headquarters instructed its New York field office to continue its corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation following the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump, according to a former senior law enforcement official.
The instructions ordered agents to “go forward” with their ongoing inquiry into the Clinton Foundation which is focusing on issues of corruption and money laundering, according to the source.
“There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work,” the former official told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview.
He said he received this information about a week ago and that the order originated from the bureau’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. well after the November 8 election. He did not know who at FBI Headquarters issued the order.
The same source broke the news to TheDCNF that the FBI was conducting a multi-city probe of the foundation in as many as five cities: New York, Little Rock, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Miami. The source did not know the status of the bureau’s work in the four other cities.
In an interview with the New York Times on November 21, he said, “I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t.”
But he didn’t rule out a continuing probe of the foundation, saying, “we’ll have people that do things,” on the foundation, which the Times wrote was, “perhaps a reference to the F.B.I. or Republicans who might continue to press for prosecutions in the email or foundation cases.”
The Clinton Foundation originally started in Little Rock, Arkansas as the main nonprofit entity to build and maintain the presidential library for former President Bill Clinton.
As its activities exploded in the United States and overseas, its operations migrated to New York City.
Other FBI bureaus also opened probes of the foundation in other cities.
On numerous occasions bureau agents also conferred with Peter Schweizer, who chronicled the money flows into the charity from influential and wealthy people and foreign governments and wrote about it in his book titled, “Clinton Cash.”
