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?

ALERT ALERT

 Gun Control Crowd Silent After Black Female
 Kills Three In Maryland Shooting 

A 26-year-old female stormed a RiteAid distribution center with a pistol this morning in Aberdeen, MD, killing three before turning the weapon on herself, according to police.

“Our suspect is a lone female suspect, age 26, who had a last known address in Baltimore County. She has died at the hospital from fatal injury, a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said.

The shooter has been identified by multiple news outlets as Snochia Moseley, a disgruntled temporary employee who also happens to be a black female.

Normally in the case of a mass shooting incident like this, Twitter would be ablaze with calls for gun control measures, inane nonsense about terrorism, labels of toxic masculinity and dismantling gun rights groups like the NRA.

But something is different about today’s shooting: it was not carried out by a white male, leading to deafening silence from the usual suspects in the anti-gun world.

Moms Demand Action, a gun control group partnered with far left Everytown for Gun Safety, has been silent except for a generic “condolences” message posted to its Twitter page.

The group’s founder, ever-outspoken Shannon Watts, has not said a word about the shooting on her active Twitter feed.

There has been nothing but silence from petulant David Hogg, face of the Hitler youth pre-pubescent gun control crowd, who rose to national prominence after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February which killed 17.

Leftist activist Michael Moore has not weighed in, either (literally or figuratively).

Nor is cable news playing the story on repeat with live coverage, a “BREAKING NEWS” chyron, and gun-control activists on call as guests during every segment.

If all of these “activists” truly believed in the cause, shouldn’t the standard be the same regardless of the ethnicity and gender of the shooter?

Big League Politics reached out to Shannon Watts to ask her just that. She did not return our request for comment.

The FBI, the DEA, the ATF, the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police and the local municipal departments of Aberdeen, Havre de Grace and Bel Air are all investigating the incident.
