Over 50 Republican politicians came together on Tuesday to demand that Barack Obama’s Department of Justice begin an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
According to Truthfeed, the foundation has been heavily criticized this week after a newly discovered email revealed that Hillary ran a “pay to play” scam out of the State Department. Her scam reportedly gave Clinton Foundation DONORS special access to the Secretary of State, as well as special favors.
This effectively means that Hillary used her position in the government to accumulate more money for herself and gain favor.
Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), a former United States attorney, spearheaded a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday asking her to have her department follow up on an Associated Press report that found some of the private interests who secured meetings with Clinton had donated to her family’s foundation.
“All of this makes it very unclear where the State Department ended and where the Clinton Foundation began,” Ratcliffe wrote. “The facts as they have been reported surrounding the Clinton Foundation warrant an investigation that is beyond reproach and beyond any appearance of political favoritism. Appointing a special counsel is a necessary step at this juncture.”
The letter was signed by over 50 other GOP lawmakers. SHARE this story if you stand with them!
