It’s long been common knowledge that the Clinton Foundation was a pay-for-play racket where foreign governments and corrupt politicians traded donations for influence with the supposed next president of the United States, Hillary Clinton. But for years, everyone was too scared, or too compromised to conduct a full investigation.
That has finally ended. House Republicans are in full truth-finding mode.
Fox has the story:
North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations, opened Thursday’s hearing by expressing concern over recently reported tax documents showing donations to the Clinton Foundation plunged in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
The filings showed that the foundation took in $26.6 million in 2017, a 58 percent drop from the $62.9 million it received the previous year.
“Now several reports suggest that the decrease in donations could reflect a ‘pay to play’ activity in the years prior to the decline in donations,” Meadows said.
