As stories of Hillary Clinton’s private email server continue to develop, it’s becoming more and more apparent that the former head of the State Department hid her emails to avoid scrutiny of a pay-to-play scheme she was operating through the Clinton Foundation.
Political analyst Charles Krauthammer explained that Clinton set up the server in 2009 before becoming Secretary of State because “she anticipated having exchanges that she would not want anyone to see” in an attempt to hide the “rank corruption” of the Clinton Foundation.
Two major stories broke this week that further unraveled the scheme and have landed Clinton and the Obama administration in some serious hot water.
The FBI’s corruption investigation of the Clinton Foundation, which had expanded to five field offices, was facing pressure from senior Justice Department officials who were “very pissed off” the probe was still ongoing.
So pissed off that they’re trying to stop the FBI from doing their job and investigating criminality at the foundation.
CNN has reported that agents working the Clinton Foundation corruption case are complaining about the Obama Justice Department putting up “roadblocks” that “are politically-driven” and preventing them from using additional tools to expand their investigation.
Meanwhile, Fox News is reporting that agents working on the Clinton Foundation case are treating it as a “very high priority,” have “interviewed and re-interviewed” witnesses, and that agents “had collected a great deal of evidence.”
Even more worrisome for Hillary Clinton?
Reports also indicate that the laptops belonging to Clinton lawyers Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson have NOT been destroyed under their immunity deals and presently reside in the FBI’s Washington, DC field office where they are being “exploited.”
So at least a pair of devices that the Clinton camp thought had been destroyed are still in the FBI’s hands and they are digging into them as we speak! That, along with Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner’s laptops being rummaged through, all spell serious trouble for everyone involved in this scandal.
Clinton has been trying to cover her pay-to-play interactions at the State Department from the onset. The Obama administration has been aiding her at every turn, even having current DOJ employees provide “heads up” on the status of her email investigation.

Let’s hope the FBI continues to “actively and aggressively” probe the Clinton Foundation and the white collar crimes they’ve allegedly engaged in.
And let’s hope they’re able to fend off the obstructionists in the Obama administration and investigate them after they’re done with the Clintons.
