Clinton Foundation Investigation

Always slipping from my hands
Sand's a time of its own
Take your seaside arms and write the next line
Oh, I want the truth to be known
--Spandau Ballet

Multiple sources are reporting that the real elephant in the room for Hillary Clinton is the FBI investigation into possible improprieties of the Clinton Foundation. This investigation is separate from but related to the Bureau's investigation into Clinton's email improprieties while secretary of state.

Momentum of the Clinton Foundation investigation is building due to the Wikileaks publication of thousands of hacked emails including those from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, and possibility of new evidence found on on Anthony Weiner's laptop.

The primary focus of the investigation is the possibility of 'pay-for-play'--i.e., donors such as foreign dignitaries paying the Foundation in exchange for inner access to US foreign policy information and favors via Clinton's State Dept. Stated differently, the investigation is trying to determine whether Hillary Clinton put US foreign affairs on sale.

Sources suggest that evidence that implicates the Clinton Foundation is mounting at a rapid pace and that, barring obstruction from, for example, Obama's Dept of Justice, that an indictment is likely pending.
