    Three whistleblowers have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence suggesting wrongdoing at the Clinton Foundation, a Republican congressman says.
    Mark Meadows, head of the House Oversight Subcommittee, said the documents suggest misappropriation of funds and quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Hillary's time as secretary of state.
    Meadows spoke to Fox News about the documents ahead of an investigative hearing on the Clinton Foundation which is due to take place next week.

    The hearing will review evidence collected by U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tasked with investigating the Foundation by ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
    It comes after The Hill reported that 6,000 pages of evidence on the Clinton Foundation was secretly handed to the FBI and IRS last year.
    The papers allege that the Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

    The documents also showed commingling of personal and Foundation affairs, especially by former President Bill Clinton, according to The Hill.
    The evidence was compiled by a firm called MDA Analytics LLC and included a submission by another whistleblower.
    A spokesman for the Clinton Foundation said at the time: 'The Clinton Foundation has been one of the most heavily scrutinized charitable organizations in the world, and subjected to outrageous, politically motivated allegations that have been proven false time and time again.
    'Critics continue to resurrect these false claims to try to damage the reputation of the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation.
    'The fact is, the Clinton Foundation has demonstrably improved the lives of millions of people across America and around the world, while earning top ratings from charity watchdog groups in the process.'
    Meadows has previously raised questions about a large drop in funds donated to the Foundation after Hillary lost her 2016 presidential race to Donald Trump.
    Donations fell from $63 million in 2016 to $27 million in 2017.
    He said: 'The remarkable significance of the drop in Clinton foundation donations raises grave concerns their operations were not above board as the American people have been led to believe.
    'Whenever we look at the possibility of 'pay to play' by government officials, current or former, it demands answers--and anyone who uses public office to sell access for their own financial benefit must be held accountable.'
    Meadows is a close ally of Donald Trump who has called for investigations into his former Democrat opponent.
    The Clinton Foundation defended itself against the allegations, saying the fall in donations was due to the Clinton Global Initiative shutting down.

    CNN's interpretation: "Trump's really fucked now, the walls are closing in" (paraphrasing)
    "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter". "A rising tide raises all boats". "MAGA"

    So goes the conventional wisdom. And yet...

    John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

    [A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

    It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

    Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

    The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

    Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

    Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

    That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

    In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.

    Read the rest here.

    Oh goody, they're going to hold a hearing! Wonderful! Here's my thoughts, just take the rest
    of the year off and enjoy the holidays. Get used to hibernating because that's all you'll be
    doing for at least the next 2 years.

    You should be happy with the Clintons. Bill gave us all a surplus on the national debt(something republicans have always talked about but never ever never ever achieved)...which allowed Gore to talk about a lock box and for bush to talk about tax cuts(to make sure we went back into debt) during their debates.

    Investigating the Clintons is so juvenile. It's being done for the sole purpose of Trump being investigated so the republicans feel the pressure that they have to investigate something...so investigate 2 people that aren't even remotely in power. Any dollar spent is wasted money. But republican constituents get so excited every time they hear Clinton and investigation.
