• Clinton’s candidacy in danger as investigation headed by aggressive prosecutor.
By the Staff at AFP —
The online news and opinion site The Daily Caller is reporting that a joint Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)-United States Attorney probe of the Clinton Foundation is underway, although an FBI spokesperson told FoxNews.com, “We’re declining to comment.”
AMERICAN FREE PRESS’s Victor Thorn, who was found dead on his birthday August 1, has written extensively on the Clinton Foundation, which was founded in 1997 as the William J. Clinton Foundation, and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with offices in New York City and Little Rock, Arkansas. According to The Washington Post, the Foundation has raised more than $2 billion from “a wide range of the world’s wealthiest people: Eastern European tycoons, Arab Sheiks, African mining magnates, hedge fund billionaires and Wall Street firms.”
When campaign contributions are included in the total, wrote the Post, the total is closer to $3 billion.
“The Clintons’ fundraising operation—$3 billion amassed by one couple, working in tandem for more than four decades—has no equal,” the Post reported.
In his last known work, CROWNING CLINTON: Why Hillary Shouldn’t Be in the White House, Thorn discussed how Hillary Clinton “illegally maintained a private email server to conceal how the Clinton Foundation acted as a vast multi-million dollar private slush fund.”
He also touches upon in the book “how much money flows into the Clinton Foundation from places that horribly oppress women.”
The New York Times reported on August 14, 2013, that “the Clinton Foundation raised at least $46 million from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman and other foreign governments.”
In fact, one whole chapter in the book, “Clinton Foundation Jeopardizes U.S. National Security?” is dedicated to this shady enterprise, which has been under a cloud of suspicion since at least 2007, when questions were raised about its transparency.

According to a former senior law enforcement official, potential corruption charges are being spearheaded by Preetinder Singh “Preet” Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
Bharara is an aggressive prosecutor who has won convictions against banks, hedge funds, Wall Street insiders, and powerful New York state politicians, most notably former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon “Shelly” Silver, who was convicted of taking “$4 million in exchange for helping a cancer researcher and two real estate developers.”
“Prosecutorial support will come from various U.S. Attorneys Offices—a major departure from other centralized FBI investigations,” reports The Daily Caller.
“The reliance on U.S. attorneys would be a significant departure from the centralized manner in which the FBI managed the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server and email addresses,” the source told The Daily Caller.
