Where’s the News about the FBI’s Investigation of the Clinton Foundation

With Hillary Clinton making the news again, with claims that she is thinking of becoming a preacher following her 2016 election defeat, it should remind Americans of one scandal that has not been resolved since the 2016 election: the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

During the 2016 election, the Clinton Foundation was the target of the Right due to lack of transparency and accusations that it was a charity bank for the Clinton family. Some of the more notable news about the foundation was that Clinton Foundation staffers linked donors to then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton, a Clinton Foundation donor obtained uranium preferences from the Clinton-run Department of State, and how the foundation accepted tens millions of dollars from countries such as Morocco, Saudi Arabia (reportedly between $10 to $25 million) and Algeria. Many of these foreign donating countries have poor human rights records, which was a focus of Clinton’s tenure at the Department of State.

The attention was so intense on the foundation’s foreign donations that Bill Clinton, in August 2016, announced that the foundation will no longer accept foreign donations if Hillary Clinton was elected president.

The FBI began investigating the foundation in the summer of 2015 and this continued through the 2016 election cycle. Understandably, investigations take significant amounts of time.

But, there has not been an update on the FBI investigation since last fall, with updates in October, November and December. Why is the FBI silent on the investigation over the past seven months?

Here’s what a Google search brings up from the liberal mainstream media outlets when you type in “FBI investigation of Clinton Foundation.” Notice the dates of this reporting:

NPR: Calls to Investigate Clinton Pose a Challenge to US Political Norms (August 3, 2017) · The Atlantic: But What About Hillary Clinton? (July 24, 2017) · McClatchy DC: House Republicans want a new, sweeping probe of Clinton (July 28, 2017)

Notice that The Washington Post, New York Times and major media outlets have not published any recent articles or editorials on the subject since the election, other than House Republicans asking for an investigation of the Clinton Foundation and former FBI director James Comey. Now, if the shoe were on the other foot, would the liberal media be this silent?

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
