So, you thought that it was only a matter of time until the FBI's investigation of the Clinton Foundation would come to light. Surprise. The investigation was quashed from the top down at the Department of Justice. While the FBI wanted to investigate, LawNewz reports, "Top officials at the Department of Justice reportedly denied the FBI's request to conduct an investigation into potential public corruption at the Clinton Foundation earlier this year."

CNN's Pamela Brown, reported, as seen in the video below, "So, what the FBI wanted to do, earlier this year, is open up a case and investigate whether there was a conflict of interest at the time that donor was making contributions to the Clinton Foundation, during [Hillary] Clinton's tenure at the State Department."

Brown reports that three DOJ field offices believed an investigation should be launched.


Apparently, in that same meeting, the top DOJ people, I think it's reasonable to assume, some who were appointed by Obama, decided that while protecting Clinton by quashing the investigation, it was okay to throw Virgina governor Terry McAuliffe under the bus, allowing investigations into his connections and donations to the Clinton Foundation to proceed.

Bottom line, against the judgement of three FBI field offices, people at the top of the DOJ hierarchy, presumably with ties directly to the White House, killed the investigation.

This reminds me of the time during George W. Bush's administration, where people kept waiting for whistleblowers to come out, exposing corruption and crimes by the Bush administration, only to find that the DOJ had ignored or silenced over 2000 whistleblowers.

If you think the system will work, if you believe that the answer to the problem of the corporate two party system will be solved by voting alone, you are intoxicated by the kool aid. The fish rots from the head down, and in the case of government, it is corrupted. This is why the investigation you thought would come out never did. So, if you think, by writing in Bernie's name or voting for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson is enough, you are deluding yourself. Get involved in other actions aiming at changing things outside of the electoral pathway. That's the only way things will be really changed.
