State Department Refuses to Investigate Clinton

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And even though the smoke is billowing out of the Clinton Foundation, the State Department says it won’t dig further into Hillary Clinton’s actions as secretary of state. “The State Department has not and does not intend to initiate a formal review, or to make a retroactive judgment about items that were not submitted during Secretary Clinton’s tenure,” spokesman Jeff Rathke said. State has the most information on Clinton’s actions — more than Congress — because she dumped 30,000 of her emails on the department before wiping her private hard drive clean. But it refuses to look deeper or give the emails to someone who will.

It’s common sense to be suspicious of the Clinton Foundation, given the kinds of reports coming out about the “charity.” According to the book “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer, at least four members of the Clinton Foundation board were charged with financial crimes, including fraud and bribery. As for the uranium deal the State Department approved under Clinton’s leadership (the one that gave Russia control over much of the U.S.‘s uranium reserves) the Kazakh official who helped broker the deal is serving a 14-year sentence for making corrupt uranium deals with foreign governments. Furthermore, the Clinton Foundation is unlikely to disappear if Clinton becomes president. After all, what’s first swinger Bill to do? The Washington Post reports that Bill Clinton will not recuse himself of the foundation, even during Clinton’s presidential campaign. And so, the corrupt money continues to flow.

Update: Then again, The Washington Times reports, “A federal judge has reopened an open-records case trying to pry loose some of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails, marking the first time a court has taken action on the email scandal. Judge Reggie B. Walton agreed Friday to a joint request by the State Department and Judicial Watch, which sued in 2012 to get a look at some of Mrs. Clinton’s documents concerning a public relations push.”
