While the decision by Donald Trump, or more correctly his Attorney General, has not yet become known, and the AG’s position won’t even be filled for a couple months or so, one Clinton option that wasn’t previously on most of our radar is emerging. It’s got the added benefit of being immune to the granting of pardons by a pretend ‘president.’
A source close to the Trump transition team has told the New York Post that the administration intends to “pressure” some future ambassadors to discuss potential wrongdoing by the Clinton foundation and the Clintons personally within their nations, with an eye towards conducting criminal investigations.
Mr. Trump has indicated his position on prosecuting Clinton may be softening although that does not necessarily mean that his Attorney General would share that same perspective. Senator Jeff Sessions, if approved, is a strong law and order guy, unlike anyone to occupy that position during the past 8 years.
Two nations that were identified as being key diplomatic posts where that type of investigation is expected to be significant are Haiti and Colombia, “because of all the money involved,” according to the source. WikiLeaks emails indicated that in Haiti, Clinton foundation donors, known as “Friends of Bill,” were given priority in the State Department and other favors. There are also charges of widespread fraud in the Haiti earthquake relief efforts which became a cash cow for the Clintons, their friends, their associates.
In Colombia the funny business involved Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra. He was also a participant in the fraud and influence peddling in which Clinton sold American uranium rights to Russia for personal profit. In return for a pledge of $100 million to the Clinton Foundation in 2005 he later was able to use connections to the foundation’s “philanthropic” work to acquire large pieces of land where he established an oil business.
According to a document reviewed by the New York Post, just days after Clinton lost the election and was safely out of power, French federal comptrollers began tracking tens of millions in government money that had found its way into Clinton Foundation coffers.
The Australian government announced last week announced that it would end its ten-year relationship with the Clinton Foundation, thus far totaling $25 million, though no investigation was announced. Norway is also limiting their own $25 million association.
Investigations by other nations might also free the Trump administration up politically, making it less toxic for a domestic investigation to be conducted or reveal new lawbreaking that was not covered in a potential Obama pardon. There’s so much illegality, it would be easy to miss something and leave her exposed. What kind of language would be required to specify offenses without leaving others uncovered or bringing new possible offenses and charges to light.
