Judge Reinstates Tax Evasion Case Against Clinton Foundation
A former DEA official and corporate tax expert blew the whistle on Bill and Hillary last year. Now they face tax evasion charges despite the best efforts from deep state Democrats to have the allegations dismissed.
It’s a long-standing open secret that Bill and Hillary Clinton used their so-called charitable foundation like a personal slush fund. Hillary also misused her position as Secretary of State to prompt foreign entities and special interests groups to make large donations to the Clinton Foundation. They included a $1 million gift from Qatar and upwards of $21 million raised in conjunction with Bill Clinton’s 65th birthday.
“At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars,” the Associated Press reported in 2016. “Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.”
Hillary may have gotten away with gross misconduct while working with Obama and Joe Biden, but whistleblowers Lawrence Doyle and John Moynihan put her on the criminal hot seat. The pair conducted an audit and investigation into the ways Clinton Foundation money was misappropriated by Bill and Hillary. Based on their research, the Clintons allegedly evaded taxes on between $400 million and $2.5 billion.
After Doyle and Moynihan filed a whistleblower complaint regarding tax evasion, Bill and Hillary moved to have the complaint vacated. That’s not surprising considering the Obama-Biden administration’s IRS chief, Lois Lerner, faced contempt of Congress for her refusal to come clean about obstructing conservative PACs before the 2012 elections. Democrat holdovers tried to rescue Hillary from charges that carry real jail time.
After IRS officials asked for a summary judgment to vacate the complaint, U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson tapped the brakes. It appears the Democrats at the IRS forgot to go judge shopping because Gustafson was appointed by President George W. Bush, not Obama.
The smokescreen Hillary’s cohorts fabricated “fails to support the (Whistleblower Office) conclusion that (Criminal Investigation) had not proceeded with any action based on petitioners’ information. Accordingly, we deny the motion on the grounds that the WBO abused its discretion in reaching its conclusion, because not all of its factual determinations underlying that conclusion are supported by that record,” Judge Gustafson wrote in his denial to let Bill and Hillary off the hook.
The tax judge also pointed out that Doyle and Moynihan had enjoined impartial investigators at the FBI during the process, a fact deep state operatives tried to hide.
“The FBI in (redacted) has thanked us profusely and praised our report excessively. As one individual close to the investigation commented to me, ‘you and your colleagues have saved numerous federal agents thousands of hours of work,’” Judge Gustafson reportedly quoted a document that was kept secret from the public.
Doyle and Moynihan concluded that the Clintons pilfered off upwards of 60 percent of the charity’s money on lavish travel, inflated salaries, and grants doled out to personal friends. By comparison, a legitimate charity uses 15 percent or less on salaries and travel.
Tax evasion may not have the sex appeal of political corruption, but it carries real jail time, and the case against the Clintons moves forward. There’s more than one way to skin a cat.
