Apparently, FBI officials found enough evidence to warrant a direct request to the Obama DOJ asking that a full investigation be initiated into the Clinton Foundation.
That request has been denied.
For months there have been speculative rumors regarding a widening FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation’s murky, multi-million dollar operation that sees heavy investment via foreign interests – interests Hillary Clinton had direct ties to during her tenure as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. Last month, FBI Director James Comey refused to confirm or deny to members of Congress such an investigation was underway.
According to just-published reports (HERE) the FBI did in fact make a recent and direct request that the Department of Justice’s public integrity unit open a full investigation into allegations of collusion and/or influence peddling by Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. That investigation would undoubtedly then involve the Obama White House and quite possibly include a grand jury.
A Clinton Foundation official pressed Hillary Clinton's top aide Huma Abedin to give special State Department access to a major donor who was accused of laundering money from Nigeria, according to emails released on Tuesday.
Doug Band, a top official at the Clinton Foundation, emailed Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin in April 2009 and asked her to connect Gilbert Chagoury, a billionaire Lebanese businessman who pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative, with the U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Jeffrey Feltman.
Chagoury, a former confidante of brutal Nigerian dictator Sani Abacha, was convicted in 2000 of laundering Nigerian money to Switzerland in connection with the Abacha regime. Under a plea deal, he agreed to pay Nigeria $66 million, and the Swiss government later expunged his conviction.
A new batch of emails released Tuesday is raising fresh questions about whether Clinton Foundation donors got preferential treatment from the State Department during Hillary Clinton's tenure at the top.
Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch released 44 new email exchanges which it says were not in the original 30,000 handed over to the State Department, despite the Democratic presidential nominee's claims she turned over all work-related emails amid the now-closed probe into her private server use.
The documents, produced as a result of the group's FOIA lawsuit, appear to challenge Clinton's insistence that there is "no connection" between her family foundation and her work at the department.
The FBI went to Justice Department earlier this year asking for it to open a case into the foundation, but the public integrity unit declined.
Leadership Raymond Hulser Chief, Public Integrity Section

so if the Reps get hacked, their dirty laundry wont be exposed.
these arent partisan political corruption, its just political corruption.
if the RNC gets hacked today, you wont see similar emails dating back to god knows when for 'political' favors and contracts etc?
i dont nkow whats important here, politics which benefits the people, or politics which benefits a political party.
all your threads are the same , why?
is it about politics or who you like..?
back to topic...
i think the DOJ [minus obama appended] should investigate to the fullest and expose more corruption. imagine all the corruption we could potentially root out of the most prestigious seats of our government if all political parties were thoroughly investigated for corruption with equal threads 'pointing' to facts.... not just during election season
