The Clinton Foundation Shakedown Racket Didn’t Have Enough Buffers to Shield Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton never expected the incriminating Clinton Foundation e-mails to come to light. They show that her subordinates or associates in the Foundation, Huma Abedin and Doug Band, sold access to the Secretary of State, a clear offense. That’s my reading. There’s enough evidence there to have experienced and unbiased lawyers question them under oath. If this doesn’t come to pass, I’ll take it as one more nail in the rule-of-law coffin in this country.

On an investigation, I support the following:

“These new emails confirm that Hillary Clinton abused her office by selling favors to Clinton Foundation donors,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “There needs to be a serious, independent investigation to determine whether Clinton and others broke the law.”

These two Foundation functionaries were very close to Hillary Clinton. “She [Huma Abedin] has been a long-time aide to Hillary Clinton, and was U.S. Secretary of State Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff at the State Department.” Band advised Clinton during his presidency and thereafter.

Although they may have operated the racket on their own, I am certain that Hillary granted access to those whom she knew to be donors and I’m sure that she relied upon Abedin and Band to filter people who gained access to her, giving preference to donors. The donors expected this and got it. However, my judgment is just that. We really need an investigation. Hillary is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. But is there such a court prepared to charge and try her?

The question before us is whether there is any institution within the justice system to test the innocence of a major candidate for the presidency. The FBI has already shown its cowardice and so has the U.S. Department of Justice under Ms. Lynch, who, by the way, met inappropriately (or worse) with Bill Clinton.

I refer to the Godfather’s buffers in Godfather 2.
