Did Clinton Foundation and State Violate Corruption Laws?

In the 1776 Declaration of Independence, our forefathers “let Facts be submitted to a candid World.” They also set forth American principles as timely now as they were back then.

The facts back then started with an arrogant king of England who had “refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good.” Moreover, that king “obstructed the Administration of Justice . . . erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent forth hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People and eat out their Substance.”

Recent events on both sides of the Atlantic hearken back to those “bad old days.”

Let’s start with former President Bill Clinton’s meeting with the attorney general days before his wife is interviewed by the FBI, followed by the FBI director’s factual finding that Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless in . . . handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

The FBI director, in a shockingly inappropriate public statement for the head of a fact-finding agency, concluded that, “Our judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring [a criminal] case” against Hillary Clinton.

More important than the shock of an FBI fact-finder opining on prosecutorial “judgment,” many Americans are wondering why the FBI director failed even to mention the continuing corruption investigations by both the FBI and the State Department Inspector General into what Fox News reported as a much more important issue for the average American voter: “whether the possible ‘intersection’ of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws.”

The State Department Inspector General recently explained in a report titled, “Evaluation of Email Records Management and Cybersecurity Requirements,” that his Office of Inspector General “interviewed Secretary Kerry and former Secretaries Albright, Powell, and Rice. Through her counsel, Secretary Clinton declined OIG’s request for an interview . . . In addition to Secretary Clinton, eight former Department employees declined OIG requests for interviews.”

Joseph E. Schmitz served as inspector general of the Dept. of Defense from 2002-2005 and is a Partner in the law firm of Schmitz & Socarras LLP. Read more reports from Joseph E. Schmitz — Click Here Now.
