It turns out that FBI Director Comey may be connected to the Clinton Foundation and House Republicans want to know exactly what that connection is.
House Republicans sent a letter to Comey yesterday, demanding to know why he didn’t recommend federal charges against Hillary Clinton over her use of private email servers.
The letter, sent by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, and Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina states:
“[Clinton] clearly placed our nation’s secrets in peril. No one is above the law, and the American people deserve a more robust explanation for your decision to not recommend criminal charges.”
The letter mentions emails deleted by Clinton, but forensically recovered by the FBI and asks if they had any connection to the Clinton Foundation.
Recent revelations have shown, however, that Comey still sits as a Director of the Swiss mega-bank, HSBC Holdings, as a member of their Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee.
Wealthy HSBC clients have donated mightily to the Clinton Foundation, including convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein.
According to Judicial Watch, the Clintons may be guilty of 200 incidents of conflict of interest as they amassed at least $48 million dollars in speaking fees while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State and hiding all email traffic through her illegal home server.
Although Comey’s connection to the Clinton Foundation is probably tenuous at best, no one knows for sure. Any sort of connection to one of the world’s biggest banks would be enough to cause Clinton to receive kid glove treatment while others accused of lesser crimes paid the full penalty.
According to Rep. Matt Salmon of Arizona, Comey’s connections to HSBC should be investigated by a special prosecutor.
Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio seems to agree as today, he accused the FBI of being “steeped in political bias” and also said there should be an “independent and impartial” investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s abuse of classified emails.
