Just went we all thought Hillary Clinton would get away with being “above the law,” the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) just gave her the worst news possible… The IRS is now auditing the Clinton Foundation’s illegal activities as a non-profit organization.
This news comes right in the middle of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Philadelphia, and could change everything for the 2016 presidential campaign:
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen referred congressional charges of corrupt Clinton Foundation “pay-to-play” activities to his tax agency’s exempt operations office for investigation, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
The request to investigate the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation on charges of “public corruption” was made in a July 15 letter by 64 House Republicans to the IRS, FBI and Federal Trade Commission (FTC). They charged the foundation is “lawless.”
The initiative is being led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican who serves as the vice chairwoman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which oversees FTC. The FTC regulates public charities alongside the IRS.
Blackburn said she and her colleagues will “continue to push” for answers on the Clinton Foundation’s governing policies, including its insular board of directors. She said they also will examine conflicts of interest and “follow the money trail.”
“In my opinion, there’s a lack of good governance, there is the appearance of conflicts of interest, and there are continued questions about the financial dealings,” she told TheDCNF.
House Republicans singled out Laureate Education and Uranium One as two companies that seemed to have paid lavish sums to the Clintons and later received official government benefits.
Laureate hired former President Bill Clinton as “honorary chancellor,” paying him $16.5 million over five years. The Baltimore-based company, which operates for-profit universities in 28 countries, also donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to the foundation’s web site.

There is no question the Clinton Foundation exists for Hillary Clinton and her family to become wealthy from massive donations from foreign governments and questionable investors. It is the ultimate pay-for-play operation, which operates on a scale never before seen in American politics.
The Clinton family cashed out after President Bill Clinton’s 8 years in the White House, but now they may be taking their illegal activities so far that even Obama’s IRS has to crack down on them.
This is a breaking news story. We will share more details as they become available.
