Catherine Herridge is reporting that the FBI has expanded its investigation into Hillary Clinton to include public corruption.
And the hits just keep on coming.
Looks like the book Clinton Cash was on to something.
From the Fox News report:
The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has expanded to look at whether the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News.
This track is in addition to the focus on classified material found on Clinton’s personal server.
“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” one source said.
The development follows press reports over the past year about the potential overlap of State Department and Clinton Foundation work, and questions over whether donors benefited from their contacts inside the administration.
Just yesterday, Hillary appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation where she hemmed and hawed and lied her way through a question from John Dickerson about if her instructing a staffer to send classified information through an unsecured email was violating the law.
Hillary: “No, not all, and as the State Department said just this week, that did not happen, and it never would have happened, because that’s just not the way I treated classified information. Headings are not classification notices, and so, oftentimes, we are trying to get the best information we can, and obviously what I’m asking for is whatever can be transmitted, if it doesn’t come through secure, to be transmitted on the unclassified systems. So, no, there is nothing to that, like so much else has been talked about in the last year.”
The more she spins, the more I just don’t believe her.
Listen, she can poo-poo this all she wants to. But the bottom line is, Hillary Clinton is actually facing prosecution.
Catherine Herridge’s report points out that sources within the FBI are demanding that Clinton be prosecuted.
Inside the FBI, pressure is growing to pursue the case.
One intelligence source told Fox News that FBI agents would be “screaming” if a prosecution is not pursued because “many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation.”
The FBI is particularly on edge in the wake of how the case of former CIA Director David Petraeus was handled.
I would love to be a fly on the wall of both the DNC and the Hillary Campaign today. My guess is all hell is breaking loose. Not only is the former Miss Rodham’s “inevitability” looking a little less inevitable, but the likelihood that she will be leaving the race, not for her home in Chappaqua, but for an 8×10 cell in Club Fed is looking a little more likely with each passing day.
