There seems to be a common denominator with the FBI investigations.

And it relates to the Clinton Global initiative. Could this have been spawned as a result of their investigation of the unsecured server the Clintons set up in their NY home? Maybe Brian Pagliano can shed some light on it.

1. The common denominator

 

Is the investigations were launched by the Obama DOJ.

2. "There's no allegation that the foundation did anything improper"

 

So that doesn't appear to be the case.

3. Until the investigation is concluded, none of us know that.

6. But there's this tidbit

"As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe's time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton."

It's way to early to tell what's going on with Terry's case but the op does have a point.

16. An important tidbit to add is that CGI was actually the brainchild of

of Bill's "bagman and surrogate son" Doug Band who was it's managing director for the first 6 years. Band later established Teneo, the private consulting with heavyweights like Bill on the Board. Teneo was the company that hired Huma which caused all the ruckus awhile back.

18. I didn't know that he started that company.

Very interesting and maybe Teneo was the non charitable side of the business. I know Mills had a start up as well that's now in the cross hairs of the government.

8. Ummmmm...

I've been saying all along---follow the money.


Politics
Clinton Foundation received subpoena from State Department investigators.

Investigators with the State Department issued a subpoena to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation last fall seeking documents about the charity’s projects that may have required approval from the federal government during Hillary Clinton’s term as secretary of state, according to people familiar with the subpoena and written correspondence about it.

The subpoena also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.

19. Very interesting. I was unaware of that incestuous connection. It appears it may have been

a trial run for the CF. Check this out.

http://nypost.com/2016/05/22/how-corporate-america-bought-hillary-clinton-for-21m/

Bill Clinton’s speaking fees skyrocketed just days after Hillary’s nomination as secretary of state in 2009. Corporations, such as TD Bank, that had never paid a dime to hear him speak suddenly bellied up to the bar, waving fistfuls of cash. Coincidentally, TD Bank was the largest investor in the Keystone XL pipeline, which needed approval from the new secretary of state. Hillary dodged and weaved and Obama later nixed it — but the Clintons kept the cash. It makes sense to make friends with the woman who might just be the next president. But what does that say about what the office has become?

The OP never made it past "Clinton".

4. The common denominator is two failing & flailing campaigns trying to take Clinton down

with flimsy innuendo.

10. The FBI is just going through the motions of an investigation so this can be tamped down for good

Sorry, dear Bernster, there will be no 11th-hour paving-of-the-way for Sanders to get the nomination.

I do love watching you hope, though.

And the Foundation will be the gift that keeps on giving.

13. No one has explained if the "Foundation" can hire Bill and/or Hillary at any time as

 

paid board members. Looks like a great retirement plan to me.

14. If so, it would be stemming from the deleted emails, no?

That in and of itself could be an issue.
