Report: FBI Investigating Clinton Foundation Amid Corruption Allegations

The FBI opened a new investigation into the dealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, government sources told The Hill in a report released Friday.

The Clinton Foundation came under intense scrutiny during the 2016 election, with implications of corruption following Hillary Clinton’s campaign throughout the cycle. Now the FBI is giving its full attention to the allegations, interviewing people around Little Rock, Arkansas, the site of the foundation’s start:

The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.

Spokespeople for both Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation slammed the new investigation as “politically motivated.”

Perhaps the Department of Justice has rediscovered interest in the Clinton Foundation after earlier reports from The Hill indicated that Russians may have attempted to influence the Clintons with donations to their organization.
