UNREAL: James Comey’s Brother Handles Clinton Foundation’s Taxes!

The deep-deep pit of D.C. corruption just keeps getting deeper…

Via The Gateway Pundit

“Ousted FBI Director James Comey’s ties to the Clinton Foundation and the conflicts of interest that lie there are too close to not raise red flags.”

Comey just so happened to have joined the board of the British bank HSBC Holdings in 2013, which just so happens to be a Clinton Foundation partner.

Noting all of this, one of the most important conflicts of interest is Comey’s brother Peter Comey’s role at the Washington law firm DLA Piper, where he serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas”.

DLA Piper is one of the top ten all-time career campaign donors for Hillary Clinton. On top of this, DLA Piper also happens to do the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. DLA Piper performed the 2015 audit of the Foundation when the scandal first broke.

BREAKING: Obama Administration Pressured Foreign Leaders To Support Clinton Foundation Donors

Once again the real news is being purposely ignored in favor of the fake and manufactured far left version. Breaking now are details put forth by the Prime Minister of Bangladesh that she received a personal call from then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton demanding the Prime Minister reinstate a Clinton Foundation donor as Chairman of that nation’s Grameen Bank.

That phone call by Mrs. Clinton was highly illegal. It was also likely known by others within the Obama administration whose silence on the matter is proof yet again that such behavior was the status-quo within the administration. 

See below for further details.

Via CircaNews

…While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business.

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank. The bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative.  Grameen Research, which is chaired by Yunus, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000, according to the Clinton Foundation website. 

All it took was $200,000 to $300,000 to have the U.S. Secretary of State apply pressure to world leaders on your behalf. That was Hillary Clinton’s primary purpose in becoming Secretary of State – to enrich the Clinton Machine, American security interests be damned. (Remember, it was Mrs. Clinton who oversaw the sale of a large share of North American uranium interests to Russian investors linked to Vladimir Putin. After which money flowed into the Clinton Foundation from those associated with that deal.)

A world leader is calling out Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration for illegality. Make no mistake, that same kind of illegality happened again and again and again during the eight years of the Obama presidency. And yet, there is no clamor by the media to share that truth. No calls from the D.C. Establishment for investigations.

Drudge on Twitter: "Bangladesh Prime Minister says Hillary personally pressured her to help Foundation donor."

As Trump Signals He Won’t Pursue Legal Charges Against Hillary Clinton, Clinton Foundation Shows Signs Of Collapsing

Team Trump announced the small-potatoes investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was not to be a critical component of the administration’s first one hundreds days. Instead, that focus is to be upon jobs/national security/immigration and healthcare.

It is believed Trump aide Kellyanne Conway was instrumental in laying out the pros and cons of President-Elect Trump pursuing an investigation against Mrs. Clinton. Conway wants the emerging Trump administration to “go big” and likely sees the Clintons as a matter that makes the presidency appear small and vindictive. In order for the Trump agenda to gain quick passage, a Trump White House will need the help of at least some Democrats to do so.

That does not mean the matter of the still-ongoing FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation is concluded, though.

In fact, that investigation is rumored to be far-reaching and will continue regardless of the Trump administration’s statements regarding Hillary Clinton’s private email server, though Conway wants to make certain the investigation maintains a the appearance of being entirely independent of any influence from a Trump White House.

A related story yesterday via Investors Business Daily titled, Is The Clinton Foundation Doomed? suggested the foundation’s future is indeed an uncertain one:

“…the signs aren’t good for the Clintons. Take as but one example the government of tiny but oil-rich Norway, which has one of the world’s largest sovereign investment funds. It will next year slash its giving to the Clintons by nearly 90% off the peak gift of $25 million last year.

No doubt, others are also sharply reducing their gifts to the Clintons — and will continue to do so in the coming years — now that Hillary won’t have an even bigger office from which to solicit “donations.” Without political clout to sell, the troubled Clinton Foundation has little if anything to offer.”

What Donald Trump has initiated is an epic Art of the Deal moment. He has defeated and humiliated the Clintons without the appearance of having personally done so. There will be a short-term political cost paid for that, given it lacks the “lock her up” moment many of Trump’s supporters wanted, but longer term, it sends a signal to both political friend and foe alike that a President Trump will be a far more politically capable institution than many thought likely.

The Clintons are fading into political insolvency. Barack Obama is packing his bags and preparing for his “don’t forget about me” tour. Republicans control both Congress and the White House, as well as a majority of state governors and legislative bodies.

The tide has turned.

The Age of Trump begins…

REPORT: With Hillary Defeated, Clinton Foundation Faces Increasingly Uncertain Future

A little more than a week ago, the Clinton Foundation was poised to significantly further its already considerable power and influence over government policy both in America, and abroad. With former president Bill Clinton remaining on as the face of the foundation, and soon-to-be president Hillary Clinton already measuring the drapes for a return to the White House, Team Clinton was going nowhere but up.

And then the voters brought all of those plans crashing down.

For those paying attention, there has been an omission of late that speaks volumes.

Following Hillary’s defeat, a slew of future donations suggestions from the far left were announced under the guise of “saving” the progressive movement in America.

None of those suggestions mentioned donating to the Clinton Foundation.

Not a single one.

It’s a telling sign given the months spent by the Mainstream Media defending the foundation from repeated pay-to-play criticisms and a still-ongoing FBI investigation into its potentially illegal dealings.

And with no direct connection to the present and future U.S. government, the money is said to be drying up, leaving the foundation a financial shell of its former self.

A just-release article from The Federalist had this to say on the subject:

“…The biggest lie about the foundation was that its donors gave out of devotion to the cause, not because they hoped to reap any benefit from the Clintons and the U.S. government. It never made much sense that this foundation, the aims of which overlapped with so many existing nonprofits, should have amassed so much wealth and power so quickly. But to a news media that sincerely believed Hillary Clinton’s speeches were worth $225,000 to Goldman Sachs with no strings attached, perhaps any suspension of disbelief is possible.”

With limited access to power, interest in continuing to make the Clintons increasingly wealthy via the Clinton Foundation, is on the decline, marking an abrupt end to what was a 25-year era of Clinton manipulations upon the national political stage.

The House of Clinton is no more.

Trump Signals To FBI On Clinton Foundation Investigation: JUST DO YOUR JOB

Over the weekend, Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes attempted to paint President-Elect Donald Trump into a corner regarding his oft-repeated campaign-trail promise to have a real investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal – one that could even include a Special Prosecutor. It was a promise that had Trump supporters chanting “Lock her up!” in the final months of the campaign. Trump shrugged off Stahl’s questioning on the subject, stating he didn’t wish to “hurt” the Clintons, but what was left unsaid actually spoke volumes.

It is the Clinton Foundation FBI investigation that remains very much ongoing, though given the absence of Mainstream Media coverage on that fact, many Americans might not realize that to be the case.

In her interview with Trump, Stahl’s questioning focused on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server – NOT the foundation. This was no accident, but had been most likely considered and perhaps even negotiated by Trump surrogates and CBS News prior to the 60 Minutes interview.

You see, it is the Clinton Foundation scandal that has the entirety of Washington D.C. whispering to itself. Will the FBI unleash hell upon the foundation and its multi-tentacled contacts both within the U.S. government and across the globe that had U.S. policy being illegally sold to the highest bidder?  That doomsday possibility is why current Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch had already attempted to terminate the investigation, even as Director Comey continues to proceed with it.

Lynch’s role remains that of an investigative firewall between the FBI and the Clintons. (and Barack Obama)

But with Donald Trump mere weeks away from assuming power, and a new Attorney General who will accompany that transition, that firewall will soon be no more. And though Mr. Trump’s first 100-days political priorities are clearly focused upon the economy, immigration/border security, and ISIS, his refusal to state Mr. Comey’s job at the FBI is secure is an equally clear signal from the President-Elect that he expects the FBI to do its job regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation.

If justice is to be served, so be it, and because such a move will be coming from the FBI and not the White House, Trump’s detractors will find it far more difficult to accuse him of unfairly “going after” the Clintons should the FBI ultimately recommend to the new Attorney General that charges be filed.

In other words, the Clinton Foundation issue is far from over, and Donald Trump is already proving himself capable of navigating that particularly pungent swamp with considerable skill.

Oh, Look, It’s Just Hillary Clinton’s $18 BILLION Payout To Clinton Foundation Donor

You won’t see this on CNN, that’s for sure. Watch as reporter James Rosen outlines the damning evidence of how Hillary Clinton turned the U.S. State Department into her own personal money laundering operation, using BILLIONS in taxpayer dollars to pay off those who in turn, earned her and her husband, tens of millions of dollars.

And watch too as Obama State Department spokesman John Kirby basically admit this is just how things are done in D.C.

And remember as well, this is but one example of many similar side deals Hillary Clinton was engaged in with her supporters. It’s why just this week, when asked about the Clinton Foundation, Watergate-era reporter Bob Woodward declared the foundation, “corrupt.”

REPORT: Clinton Foundation Pays Women Workers Far Less Than Men

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has been built largely upon her being a woman candidate for President of the United States. Mrs. Clinton has long described herself as a champion of women’s issues.

And yet, her own past which includes attacking women accusing her husband of wrongdoing, and now most recently, details that have emerged regarding the Clinton Foundation’s own seemingly biased pay scale, would say otherwise.

Do as I say not as I do-styled hypocrisy is nothing new for Hillary Clinton, but given this information is now coming out just weeks before Election Day, is no doubt causing a bit of heartburn for Team Clinton as this report outlines:

Leaked email exposes Hillary’s gender gap hypocrisy, pay disparity at family charity

“…Men earned $68,164 compared to $64,118 for women, on average. The median salary also was higher for men, $55,200 compared with $50,000…The lowest-paid employee was a female assistant making $18,000.”

For months, Hillary Clinton has promised voters she would eliminate the pay-gap between male and female workers across America. How are voters to believe such a promise when Mrs. Clinton seems unable to eliminate that same pay gap within her own Clinton Foundation?

Could it be another example of Mrs. Clinton’s say anything but change nothing persona, as outlined in 2008 by none other than Barack Obama?

APPALLING: Clinton Foundation Spent More On Travel Expenses Than Charity

The Clinton Machine takes other people’s money, including millions from oppressive Islamic regimes that sentence homosexuals to death and don’t allow women to vote, drive a car, or be out in public alone.

In 2014, the Clinton Foundation took in an astonishing $178 million dollars, according to IRS tax records.

$178 MILLION.

Estimates indicate the foundation is currently sitting on nearly $350 million dollars in total assets – assets accumulated under the guise of the foundation being a “charitable” organization.

And of that $178 million accumulated in 2014, less than 5.2 million was then given out by the Clinton Foundation in charitable donations not directly linked to the foundation. In fact, the foundation spent more on its own travel expenses (likely LOTS of private jet miles, first-class hotels, five-star restaurants, etc) than it did on actual charity. $8 million was spent on travel – far more than on charity.

In fact, the three greatest expenses the Clinton Foundation paid out, were to offshoot organizations directly linked to the Clinton Foundation:

“…The Clinton Foundation’s three largest charitable “program service accomplishments,” according to its tax reports, are the Clinton Global Initiative ($23.2 million), the Clinton Presidential Library ($12.3 million), and the Clinton Climate Initiative ($8.3 million).”

And all of those groups, among others linked to the foundation, are often staffed by high-paid supporters of the Clintons. When Clinton supporters boast of the millions the foundation gives to charity, what they are not saying is that the vast majority of those millions are actually being given to other charities controlled by the Clintons! This allows the Clinton Foundation to remain in compliance with IRS charity organization laws, while keeping all those millions “in-house” and directed by the Clintons.

The reality is that the Clinton Foundation has never been a charitable endeavor, but rather, a commercial one that has made Bill and Hillary Clinton very-very wealthy. The single most important charity the Clintons are involved with – are the Clintons.

Hillary Hides Out As Campaign Braces For Yet More Email Tremors

This past weekend, Clinton-friendly Democrats came out to provide campaign-directed spin on various Sunday news programs with sympathetic media in an attempt to spin the outpouring of information involving the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation even as more and more Americans finally begin to understand the term, “PAY TO PLAY” and how it is so pivotal in explaining how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being worth a few million dollars to more than 100 million dollars via the guise of “public service.”

“No evidence” is the mantra of Democrats at the moment – an indication they wish to have the American public believe allegations remain just that – allegations.

And yet, there is this leaked email showing a law firm affiliated with the DNC and the Clinton campaign actually uses the term “PAY TO PLAY” in their correspondence to the DNC regarding political donations to Mrs. Clinton:

“Can we set up a time for a very brief call to go over our process for handling donations from donors who have given us pay to play letters? Want to make sure we have a robust process in place to make sure that donations that come in from those donors, in any form, get put into the operating account.

Let me know when would be a good time for you all.

Thanks, Jackie”

dnc document release pay for play

Now with the above in mind, consider this list of top foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation, much of it taking place when Hillary Clinton was herself, the U.S. Secretary of State:

Does anyone with a shred of honest contemplation think that no “PAY TO PLAY” was underway as Hillary Clinton used her powers as Secretary of State to facilitate deals that would in turn keep the Clinton Foundation flush with cash?

And now this bit of information via FOX NEWS:

“A fresh report that federal prosecutors are probing the Clinton Foundation revived speculation Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may not be past her email problems.”

Which was then followed up by this outburst via Bill Clinton that has him directly attacking FBI Director, James Comey, calling the director’s assessment a, “load of bull.”

That is Clinton-speak for, “Uh-oh, we could be in trouble here.”

BREAKING: Obama DOJ Denied FBI Request For Full Investigation Into Clinton Foundation (UPDATED)

Apparently, FBI officials found enough evidence to warrant a direct request to the Obama DOJ asking that a full investigation be initiated into the Clinton Foundation.

That request has been denied.

For months there have been speculative rumors regarding a widening FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation’s murky, multi-million dollar operation that sees heavy investment via foreign interests – interests Hillary Clinton had direct ties to during her tenure as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. Last month, FBI Director James Comey refused to confirm or deny to members of Congress such an investigation was underway.

According to just-published reports (HERE), the FBI did in fact make a recent and direct request that the Department of Justice’s public integrity unit open a full investigation into allegations of collusion and/or influence peddling by Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. That investigation would undoubtedly then involve the Obama White House and quite possibly include a grand jury.

The Obama DOJ has subsequently (and quietly) denied the request, citing a “lack of evidence.” To date, the Mainstream Media has largely ignored what should be a significant development directly related the Clintons’ seeming penchant for illegal government activity.

So far, the Justice Department has refused multiple media requests to comment on the matter.

BREAKING: Bill Clinton Didn’t Meet Secretly W/AG Lynch About Hillary. It Was About HIM.

Apparently, it was over a month earlier that Bill Clinton received word the FBI had launched a full and separate investigation into Clinton Foundation dealings, an investigation that is an offshoot of the just-concluded one involving Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server that may have compromised national security.

It was that information that had the former president organizing a hush-hush sit down with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch in Phoenix last week. He was determined to find out if the noose was around his own neck and not just his wife’s, and if so, how tight AG Lynch intended to make it.

That supposed motivation was initially dismissed by various Alternative Media sites – including this one.

Then came THIS very odd exchange today between FBI Director James Comey and Congressman Jason Chaffetz:

Chaffetz: “Did you look at the Clinton Foundation?”

Comey: “I’m not going to comment on the existence or non-existince of any other investigations.”

That response is what is known as a non-response, response, indicating an answer without having to directly give one and complicating potential future legal proceedings.

If the FBI was not currently investigating the Clinton Foundation, Director Comey, who was under oath at the time of questioning, would have simply indicated so.

Breitbart News states the following on the matter:

“…That investigation involves suspicions that the former Secretary of State abused her role to solicit donations for her family’s private charity — including donations from some foreign governments…There is reason to believe Hillary Clinton set up her private email server in order to hide such transactions from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.”

There certainly appears to be something going on between the FBI and the Clinton Foundation.

MUST READ: How the Clintons Earned MILLIONS Via Fraudulent, Government-Funded University Program

Team Hillary, with a significant assist via the Mainstream Media, has been pushing the Trump University class action lawsuit story with increasing aggression as Mrs. Clinton faces yet further declining poll numbers and tepid support among even lifelong Democrat voters.

Amidst that would-be scandal, though, is something of far greater, albeit related, significance involving both Bill and Hillary Clinton and their multi-million dollar for-profit, Latin America university scam.

The operation goes by the name of Laureate Education, a multi-national for-profit enterprise primarily funded by the U.S. government and until very recently, had none other than Bill Clinton as its honorary Chancellor – a position which earned Mr. Clinton $16.5 million dollars over just a five-year period.

And most of that $16.5 million is said to have come from $55 million in U.S. State Department funding during the very time Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

Take a moment to let that one sink in.

Oh, and billionaire financier George Soros is also a big Laureate Education backer – the very same George Soros who is funding much of the anti-Trump protests in such places as San Jose, California that took place yesterday that had numerous Trump supporters assaulted:

The Washington Post described Laureate with the following:

“Laureate has stirred controversy throughout Latin America, where it derives two-thirds of its revenue.” During Bill Clinton’s tenure as Laureate’s chancellor, the school spent over $200 million a year on aggressive telemarketing, flashy Internet banner ads, and billboards designed to lure often unprepared students from impoverished countries to enroll in its for-profit classes. The goal: get as many students, regardless of skill level, signed up and paying tuition.”

It is in essence, a taxpayer-funded Ponzi scheme for the Clintons and their Clinton Initiative. Millions are spent advertising the university and signing up 3rd world nation students whose tuition is then paid for via Hillary Clinton State Department dollars after which a portion of those same State Department dollars are pocketed personally by Bill Clinton and/or “donated” to the Clinton Foundation.

Will the Mainstream Media more fully address this scandal?

That is up to you, the reader, to make it happen.
