Tom Fitton, president at Judicial Watch, spoke to Fox News Friday and made withering remarks about the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation. He said it is now the duty of the Justice Department to take another stab at the investigation, in order to ensure justice is done.
Fitton asserts that the prior investigation undertaken by the FBI, lead by former director James Comey, was an “outrageous sham.” Fitton said it was “designed to mollify critics,” but that it lacked real work in the form of subpoenas and grand juries.
The Justice Department has announced that it has launched a new investigation into allegations that Clinton Foundation used “pay to play” politics while twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s was U.S. secretary of state, as DML News reported Friday. The investigation is reportedly being led by the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI in Little Rock, Ark.
Fox News reports that “[I]nvestigators are looking into whether the Clinton Foundation violated tax law. Accusers of ‘pay to play’ have claimed the foundation promised favors in exchange for donations or pledges of cash or gifts.”
“We know what a serious investigation looks like. We see that with [Mueller]. We didn’t see any of that last year,” he said, referring Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into allegations of Russian collusion.
Fitton says the FBI and DOJ leadership were “suppressing” investigators’ efforts.
