Yes, it’s on! Nearly five months after the election, Hillary Clinton is finally being investigated by Congress for pay-for-play, while she was Secretary of State. It is believed that Clinton may have thwarted a Bangladesh government corruption investigation against Muhammad Yunus, in exchange for large donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, has officially opened an investigation. Here is the first page of his letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, dated June 1, 1017.
According to The Daily Caller:
The Iowa Republican’s effort is the first new official inquiry of Clinton since her unexpected loss in the 2016 presidential election to President Donald Trump. Trump’s supporters often chanted “lock her up” during his many boisterous campaign rallies.
But, upon assuming the presidency, Trump and leaders of the Republican-majority Congress displayed little appetite for reopening investigations of Clinton’s tenure as the chief U.S. diplomat and multiple persistent allegations of “pay-to-play” corruption involving the Clinton Foundation. Until now.
The Daily Caller News Foundation (TheDCNF) Investigative Group exclusively reported in May that Clinton sent top U.S. diplomats to pressure Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheik Hasina and her son Sajeeb Wazed in an effort to kill that country’s corruption investigation of Yunus and Grameen Bank. Yunus was then managing director of the state-owned Bangladesh bank.
In his letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Senator Grassley wrote:
“If the Secretary of State used her position to intervene in an independent investigation by a sovereign government simply because of a personal and financial relationship stemming from the Clinton Foundation rather than the legitimate foreign policy interests of the United States, then that would be unacceptable” and……
“Co-mingling her official position as Secretary of State with her family foundation would be similarly inappropriate. It is vital to determine whether the State Department had any role in the threat of an IRS audit against the son of the Prime Minister in retaliation for this investigation.”
