Senate Committee to Investigate Hillary Clinton

Of course we loath Hillary and all that she represents. Politics is a means of feeding her enormous ego, and a tool for gaining power that she can use to her own financial benefit, personal aggrandizement, and to destroy those who get in her way. That she does this with such an “in your face” attitude just makes the woman’s presence even more intolerable. And we haven’t even yet mentioned the corruption in which she revels.

That she lost the election for president almost takes things to a spiritual level. There might be hope for life in America after all.

Returning back to Earth, we understand that the Senate might finally take a serious look at Hillary. The question in her case would be where to begin. She offers a dizzying array of scandals to probe.

Senate Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has launched a new investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s effort to thwart a Bangladesh government corruption probe of Muhammad Yunus, a Clinton Foundation donor and close friend of the Clintons.

The Iowa Republican’s effort is the first new official inquiry of Clinton since her unexpected loss in the 2016 presidential election to President Donald Trump. Trump’s supporters often chanted “lock her up” during his many boisterous campaign rallies.

But upon assuming the presidency, Trump and leaders of the Republican-majority Congress displayed little appetite for reopening investigations of Clinton’s tenure as the chief U.S. diplomat and multiple persistent allegations of “pay-to-play” corruption involving the Clinton Foundation. Until now.

And this is a problem that perhaps the Republicans have yet to figure out that they have. A sizeable part of those who voted for President Trump and who returned the Republicans to power in both houses of Congress expect “business as usual,” where crooks like Hillary walk, to come to an end. In other words, they best get their “appetite” back for conducting some real and aggressive investigations.

One place to start would be an investigation into multiple allegations that Hillary used the Clinton Foundation during her time as secretary of state to receive “donations” from foreign interests in return for her using her office as secretary of state to perform favors for those foreign interests. This is called “illegal,” and is punishable by law.

The Daily Caller News Foundation (TheDCNF) Investigative Group exclusively reported in May that Clinton sent top U.S. diplomats to pressure Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheik Hasina and her son Sajeeb Wazed in an effort to kill that country’s corruption investigation of Yunus and Grameen Bank. Yunus was then managing director of the state-owned Bangladesh bank.

The matter continues:

In a June 1, 2017, letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Grassley repeated TheDCNF charge that Clinton threatened Wazed with an IRS tax audit if his mother did not back away from the corruption probe. Wazed has lived in the U.S. for 17 years.

“If the Secretary of State used her position to intervene in an independent investigation by a sovereign government simply because of a personal and financial relationship stemming from the Clinton Foundation rather than the legitimate foreign policy interests of the United States, then that would be unacceptable,” Grassley told Tillerson. [Note in the margin: Wrong. It is not “unacceptable,” Mr. Grassley, it is “illegal.” It’s this dancing around with words you people engage in that frustrates your supporters.]

“Co-mingling her official position as Secretary of State with her family foundation would be similarly inappropriate. [Same note in the margin as above.] It is vital to determine whether the State Department had any role in the threat of an IRS audit against the son of the Prime Minister in retaliation for this investigation,” Grassley continued.

Like so much that surrounds Hillary Clinton, this corruption seemingly has no end.

Grassley described how U.S. ambassadors James Moriarty and Dan Mozena, as well as Jon Danilowica, the Deputy Chief of Mission, met with Wazed in the U.S. Embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, on numerous occasions while the corruption investigation was underway. All three are career diplomats.

Another official, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Rajiv Shah also met with Wazed. Shah’s agency awarded $13 million to Yunus organizations and another $11 million to allied Yunus organizations during Clinton’s tenure. The Department of State oversees USAID programs.

As TheDCNF previously reported, Clinton’s aid to Yunus included 18 grants, contracts and loans awarded to two of his America-based foundations, the Grameen Foundation USA and Grameen America, according to

Yunus was stripped of his directorship of the state owned Grameen Bank in 2011 as a result of the Bangladesh government’s review of his financial mismanagement of the bank and its “micro-credit” loan program for poor peasants, mainly women.

A Norwegian documentary charging Yunus personally diverted $100 million intended for Grameen Bank and for the poor to his other organizations triggered the initial investigation against him. The pocketing of funds shocked many in poverty-stricken Bangladesh where the annual per capita income is about $3,600, according to the World Bank.

There’s more, but the point has been made. If the Republicans cannot make a case here for a devastating investigation of Hillary, what chance is there of matters such as Benghazi, compromising of classified documents, and the use of the Clinton Foundation as her personal slush fund while secretary of state will ever get investigated?

Senator Grassley, this is your chance to prove whether Hillary Clinton is above the law or not. Don’t blow it.
