Trump may not personally order an investigation into Clintons e-mail and foundation scandals but, according to a source close to the Trump transition team, “foreign governments will be encouraged to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s finances.”

A source of the New York Post said, “the new administration plans to pressure the US ambassadors it will name to bring up the foundation with foreign governments and suggest they probe its ­financial dealings.

In Haiti, according to The Post,  recently leaked ­e-mails indicate “Friends of Bill” Clinton may have been given priority from the State Department as it prepared to spend some $10 billion in aid after a devastating earthquake hit the country in 2010.

In another example of  a country involved, Colombia, it turns out Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s philanthropic work in the country, where he acquired large parcels of land and set up an oil business, ­according to watchdog groups.

The Clinton Foundation has received millions from dozens of foreign governments including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Ireland.
