The Clintons certainly aren’t strangers to corruption and controversy. Beginning in the 1970s and 1980s, they were accused of running the Whitewater real estate investment scandal as governor of Arkansas. Bill allegedly pressured banker David Hale to provide an illegal $300,000 loan to Susan McDougal, the partner of the Clintons in the Whitewater deal.
Once they arrived at the White House, the Clintons were accused of illegally firing White House travel office employees and replacing them with friends. In 1996, the Clintons were accused of illegally obtaining FBI files on political opponents. It became known as “Filegate,” but they were never charged with any crimes.
Fast-forwarding to 2016, the Clintons were still exploiting the politicization and corruption within the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ). The bombshell “Durham Report” found that the FBI and DOJ relied on the lies fed to them by a Democrat-hired law firm in order to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign, which continued even after Trump was elected president. The federal agencies falsely told Americans there was evidence that President Trump’s 2016 campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the election.

Making matters worse, top leaders at the FBI shut down four criminal investigations into Hillary and Bill Clinton. The FBI did not dispute the findings in the Durham report. In 2014, a reliable source told the FBI that a foreign government planned to support and “contribute” to Hillary Clinton’s anticipated presidential campaign as a way to “gain influence with Clinton should she win the presidency,” the Durham report found.
An FBI field office began investigating this claim and sought a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant. The Durham report found that the FBI was hesitant and “more careful” to proceed with the investigation because agents were “scared with the big name [Clinton]” involved. “They were pretty “tippy-toeing’ around HRC because there was a chance she would be the next President,” the report found.
“Beginning in January 2016, three different FBI field offices, the New York Field Office (“NYFO*), the Washington Field Office (“WFO*), and the Little Rock Field Office (“LRFO**), opened investigations into possible criminal activity involving the Clinton Foundation,” the Durham report reads.

“The IRFO case opening communication referred to an intelligence product and corroborating financial reporting that a particular commercial ‘industry likely engaged a federal public official in a flow of benefits scheme, namely, large monetary contributions were made to a non-profit, under both direct and indirect control of the federal public official, in exchange for favorable government action and/or influence,'” the report said.
“The WFO investigation was opened as a preliminary investigation, because the Case Agent wanted to determine if he could develop additional information to corroborate the allegations in a recently-published book, Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer, before seeking to convert the matter to a full investigation. Additionally, the LRFO and NYFO investigations included predication based on source reporting that identified foreign governments that had made, or offered to make, contributions to the Foundation in exchange for favorable or preferential treatment from Clinton,” the report added.
Despite three separate FBI field offices receiving reliable information about “possibly criminal activity involving the Clinton Foundation,” these investigations were shut down less than one year before the November 2016 presidential election.
