Same New York Attorney, Preet Bharara, Investigating Anthony Weiner Has Launched A Joint FBI/U.S. Investigation Into The CLINTON FOUNDATION. He Wants The CLINTONS!
by Pamela Williams
The same tough crime fighting US Attorney for the State of New York, PREET BHARARA, who is investigating Anthony Weiner’s sex scandal, has also launched a joint U.S./FBI Investigation into the CLINTON FOUNDATION. BHARARA is known for going after the bad guys and winning. I believe is going after Weiner to get to the Clintons and their Foundation. This man gets what he goes after, and it is said that the Clintons fear him.
Hillary Clinton escaped prosecution for her conduct during her tenure at the State Department – her family’s foundation may not be so fortunate.The FBI has multiple investigations on the books involving the Clinton Foundation. The one in New York City, where the charity is based, is reportedly headed by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, a prosecutor who made a name for himself in the midst of the the financial crisis by acting on fraud and public corruption cases.
FBI Director James Comey would not confirm the existence of any investigations into the Clinton Foundation when he testified last month before Congress on the bureau’s investigation into the former secretary of state’s emails.
‘I’m not going to comment on the existence or nonexistence of other investigations,’ he said at the time.
Now we know that not only is Preet Bharara investigating Anthony Weiner, he is also investigating the Clinton Foundation along with the FBI. I remember reading that when the FBI asked the DOJ if they could launch an investigation into the Clinton Foundation, Loretta Lynch said, “no”. I wonder just what changed that situation for the FBI to move ahead. Could it have been pressure from Preet Bharara?
Multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation, according to a former senior law enforcement official.
The investigation centers on New York City where the Clinton Foundation has its main offices, according to the former official who has direct knowledge of the activities.
Prosecutorial support will come from various U.S. Attorneys Offices — a major departure from other centralized FBI investigations.
The New York-based probe is being led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s prosecutorial aggressiveness has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street insiders.
The official said involvement of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York “would be seen by agents as a positive development as prosecutors there are generally thought to be more aggressive than the career lawyers within the DOJ.”
