Charles Ortel, a noted investment banker-turned-Clinton corruption investigator believes the walls may finally be closing in on two people he refers to as “America’s best-known crime family” — Bill and Hillary Clinton.
For years many have suspected that Hillary Clinton used her position as Barack Obama’s secretary of state to make sweetheart “pay-for-play” deals with key figures and foreign countries as a means of enriching her and her husband’s “foundation.”
But the proof always seemed elusive. And remember, Hillary herself attempted to cover her tracks during her State Department tenure by a) using an ‘off-the-government grid’ personal email server and b) deleting some 30,000 emails critics believe are incriminating.
Now, however, as the couple spent Memorial Day being feted at various public events near their home in Chappaqua, New York, it’s shaping up to be their last one breathing free air.
Ortel, writing for Lifezette, says that while Sen. Bernie Sanders declared during the 2016 Democratic nomination race that he didn’t care about “those damn emails,” Jay Sekulow, one of POTUS Trump’s personal lawyers and president of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), does care. Always did.
He’s been trying for years to pry Clinton’s emails from a recalcitrant State Department, and he’s finally managed to get them. Ortel writes of their importance:
These long-awaited and, until now, hidden documents are all but certain to make an ironclad case that the Bill, Hillary & Clinton Foundation went into high gear as a “pay-for-play corruption” and personal enrichment scheme through its various “initiatives” — while Hillary served as secretary of state and, later, as she sought the U.S. presidency for the second time.
More easily prosecutable
Ortel notes that Sekulow’s organization has been given 339 pages of email documents thus far and it already appears as though the State Department under Clinton was “a favor factory” — for the foundation and for others. (Related: Will 2018 FINALLY be the year Bill and Hillary are BUSTED? This expert says yes and COMEY will be key.)
The investigator noted that the first batch of emails include several emails and email chains pertaining to events prior to Sept. 4, 2009, when the Clinton Global Initiative — a.k.a. New CGI — was organized as a nonprofit corporation based in Arkansas. The emails indicate that Clinton Foundation employees and directors who were working with Hillary and using at least one personal email address as well as other State Dept. employees to wrest favors for the Clinton Foundation and associated political allies at the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting — held in August of that year in New York.
“Note carefully the September and August timeline because it shows multiple activities conducted even before New CGI was organized, which is a strict no-no under federal charitable laws and regulations,” Ortel writes. He added that another problem for the Clintons is that New CGI didn’t disclose those pre-formation activities in the organization’s application for federal tax exemption — which wasn’t submitted to the IRS until a year later, in August 2010.
There’s more. Ortel believes now that the State Dept. has been made to comply with the ACLJ’s Freedom of Information Act requests, the Clintons will become easier to prosecute. He notes that a legal analysis prepared in August 2015 by Cause of Action, which advocates for government accountability, suggests that Clinton’s efforts to conduct all of her State Dept. business via her home-brew unsecured server open her up to a series of federal crimes including “mishandling classified information,” “destruction of federal records,” and “obstruction of justice.”
Hillary was essentially protected from prosecution by President Obama and Obama’s politicized FBI and Justice Department under James Comey and Loretta Lynch, respectively.
She has no similar protection now. And the reality is, after all POTUS Trump has been put through by the Obama-aligned Deep State in order to protect Hillary — whom they thought would be the next president — he has more than enough justification to ensure justice is finally done against “America’s best-known crime family.”
