Wow, that’s a hell of a one-two punch for the ‘lock her up’ crowd.
First, Justice Department officials announced they would be taking “a fresh look” into Hillary Clinton’s illegal home private email server, which was definitely hacked by foreign agents.
Now, the Justice Department has said they’ll be taking another fresh look, this time at the Clinton Foundation and whether or not it was engaged in ‘pay to play’ schemes or other illegal activities during her time at the State Department.
“The probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes,” according to a report by The Hill.
Justice Department officials will also be looking into whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use, along with how and if the Foundation adhered to applicable tax laws.
I need to sit down for a minute:

The probe is being led by the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI in Little Rock, Arkansas, with accusers claiming the Foundation promised favors in exchange for donations or pledges of cash or gifts.

Some of the seedy allegations against the Clinton Foundation include a $12 million donation from the King of Morocco in exchange for a meeting, a $1 million ‘gift’ from Qatar, and special consideration for “Friends of Bill” after a devastating earthquake in Haiti.
President Trump repeatedly called the Clinton Foundation out as a ‘pay to play’ scheme during the 2016 campaign.
“Now from WikiLeaks, we just learned she tried to get 12 million (dollars) from the king of Morocco for an appearance,” Trump said at a rally in October of 2016. “More pay for play.”
“She put her emails on a secret server to cover up her pay for play scandals in the State Department,” Trump also claimed. “Nothing threatens the integrity of our democracy more than when government officials put their public office up for sale.”
Will the Justice Department find any illegal activities at the Clinton Foundation? Make your predictions below!
