FBI Now Investigating the Clinton Foundation

The FBI has revived an investigation into the Clinton Foundation that was scaled back during the 2016 election, according to multiple reports. The probe, which reportedly seeks to determine whether any donations made to the foundation were linked to Hillary Clinton’s official capacity as secretary of state, is currently being operated out of the bureau’s field office in the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. In deflecting from the FBI investigation of his campaign’s ties to Russia, President Trump has repeatedly and publicly encouraged the Department of Justice to prosecute Clinton and her aides, including Huma Abedin. On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported that Justice had begun looking into Clinton’s use of a private email server—a probe President Trump for which the president has repeatedly agitated.
