Clinton Foundation Whistleblown Apart
New insider information about the Clinton Foundation has been submitted to the IRS as evidence of illegal activities. Former President Bill Clinton comingled his personal and business funds – a big legal no-no – and was reportedly out of control where finances were concerned.
Now, a mountain of exclusive proof exists showing that the Clintons broke multiple laws and funded a corrupt, pay-to-play political organization in the guise of a charity.
Most provocative is the statement made by the Clinton family business whistleblower – who says he “knows where all the bodies are buried.” If this is literal rather than figurative, that could amount to a lot of corpses.
Andrew Kessel is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) once employed by the Clinton Foundation who spilled his guts to investigators from MDA Analytics LLC. The company’s seasoned ex-federal staff have been making continuing inquiries into the Clinton Foundation.
It looks like MDA Analytics team hit pay dirt. In late 2016, the organization collected damnatory testimony directly from Kessel who now says he got mixed up about the nature of his interview. According to a statement released by the Clinton Foundation:
“Mr. Kessel believed he was meeting an old professional acquaintance who was looking for business from the Foundation.”
FBI agents interrogated Kessel in 2017 but said the Clinton Foundation CFO said nothing incriminatory about Bill Clinton or the charity.
MDA Analytics investigators submitted a 48-page document dated August 11, 2017, with 95 exhibits attached to support their accusations. There are even self-conducted internal Clinton Foundation legal reviews from 2008 and 2011.
The self-scrutinizing audits raised questions about “legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and ‘quid pro quo’ promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.”
Lawyers representing MDA Analytics have contacted not only the IRS about possible financial violations but also federal prosecutors in the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI agents in Little Rock, Arkansas. The latter group has been looking into possible tax code violations and pay-for-play political trickery while Hillary Clinton was former President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.
The Little Rock FBI inquiry is focusing on “whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws.”
The growing Clinton scandal is rising above the state level. “Last week, a federal prosecutor suddenly asked for documents from their private investigation,” according to Zero Hedge.
MDA Analytics stated with its evidentiary document submission:
“There is probable cause that the Clinton Foundation has run afoul of IRS rules regarding tax-exempt charitable organizations and has acted inconsistently with its stated purpose. The Foundation should be investigated for all of the above-mentioned improprieties. The tax rules, codes, statutes and the rule of law should and must be applied in this case.”
Kessel was candid with MDA investigators about Bill’s illicit fiduciary mismanagement, saying that “one of the biggest problems was Mr. Clinton’s commingling and use of business and donated funds and his personal expenses.”
An interview memo attached as an exhibit to the submission revealed:
“There is no controlling Bill Clinton. He does whatever he wants and runs up incredible expenses with foundation funds.”
The memo went on to explain the problem and how foundation staffers were unable to stop the train:
“Bill Clinton mixes and matches his personal business with that of the foundation. Many people within the foundation have tried to caution him about this but he does not listen, and there really is no talking to him.”
In an about-face public relations move – and perhaps realizing his tremendous gaffe – Kessel “strongly denies that he said or suggested that the Clinton Foundation or President Clinton engaged in inappropriate or illegal activities.”
The Clinton Foundation employed Kumiki Gibson, a private lawyer, to scrutinize the charity’s governance. The attorney found plenty to report to the Department of Waste, Fraud and Abuse:
“The work of the Foundation and the President are intertwined in a way that creates confusion at, and undermines the work of, the Foundation at virtually every level,” and was the source of “reputational and legal challenges, and…confusion, inefficiencies and waste.”
In addition to Kessel’s admissions, MDA Analytics has assembled in excess of 6,000 pages of comparable evidence from a different insider source. The watchdog organization claims that it is possible that the Clintons owe millions of dollars in unpaid taxes and penalties.
The IRS has been checking up on the Clinton Foundation since July 2016, “after 64 GOP members of congress received letters urging them to push for an investigation.” That close scrutiny is underway at the IRS facility in Dallas, Texas.
In 2011, the legal firm Simpson Thatcher reviewed Clinton Foundation audits from 2009 and 2010. The analysts found “material weaknesses” such as no required board meetings and board meeting minutes that lacked proper signatures. Some charity employees had conflicts of interest and others abused expense privileges.
Representative Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) leads a congressional subcommittee that held a hearing with U.S. Attorney John Huber on December 5, 2018. Prosecutor Huber was appointed a year ago to investigate the Clinton Foundation.
The political soup is thickening as accusations and allegations mount up against the Democratic Clinton dynasty. Many Americans are eager to see justice served so we can move on and leave the troubled past behind.
