The IRS Will Finally Investigate the Clinton Foundation

Better late than never, I guess.

The IRS is finally investigating the “pay to play” suspicions surrounding the Clinton Foundation.

According to the Washington Free Beacon:

The IRS confirmed it would investigate accusations of corrupt “pay-to-play” practices at the Clinton Foundation brought by over 60 Republican lawmakers who asked the agency to review potential “public corruption” in the organization. In a July 22 letter, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen wrote to Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.), who is leading the probe, saying he had referred the congressional charges to the agency’s Exempt Organizations Program based in Dallas, the Daily Caller first reported this week.

Blackburn joined 63 other Republican House members demanding in a letter to Koskinen, FBI leaders, and the Federal Trade Commission earlier this month that the agencies probe the Clinton Foundation. The lawmakers charged that IRS filings “portray a lawless ‘pay-to-play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years and should be investigated.”

“The Clintons have used their foundation to personally enrich themselves at the expense of American foreign policy,” Blackburn said in a statement Tuesday. “At a minimum, the Foundation’s tax-exempt status needs to be reviewed and revoked immediately.”

Of course, the IRS has been caught abusing its power as a political weapon (remember the IRS targeting scandal?). So, there’s a chance this is just a half-hearted effort to appease House Republicans.

Do you think the IRS will hold the Foundation accountable, or give the Clinton’s yet another “Get Out Of Jail Free” card? Let us know in the comments!
