The Justice Department has initiated a new inquiry into the Clinton Foundation to determine whether the organization participated in pay-to-play schemes or other prohibited behavior during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.
The investigation is evaluating whether the Clintons agreed or followed through with policy favors in exchange for donations to the foundation, and conversely, if donors agreed to give charitable gifts in an attempt to receive certain government outcomes.
The probe may also look into whether any tax-exempt assets were altered for personal and political use and if the foundation abided by applicable tax laws, the Hill reported Thursday.

Unlikely anything will come of this, remember that the statute of limitations for most felonies is 5 years and, didn't she leave the State Department in 2013? Better that they investigate the Seth Rich murder (no limit there)!
Anyway.... it's about time!!
Limitation - related constitutional challenges arise most often under the Constitution’s ex post facto and due process clauses. The federal courts have long held that a statute of limitations may be enlarged retroactively as long as the previously applicable period of limitation has not expired. The Supreme Court recently confirmed that view; the ex post facto proscription precludes legislative revival of an expired period of limitation. Due process condemns pre-
indictment delays even when permitted by the statute of limitations if the prosecution wrongfully caused the delay and the accused’s defense suffered actual, substantial harm as a consequence.
