Dept. Of Justice Refused FBI’s Request To Investigate Clinton Foundation

A newly released report by CNN reveals that the Justice Department refused a request from the FBI to launch an investigation into the Clinton Foundation amid allegations of corruption during Hillary Clintons time as Secretary of State.
According to the report, the DOJs public integrity unit declined to pursue the FBI request citing that they had “insufficient evidence” to launch an investigation.

A batch of emails released just this week reignites skepticism that, during her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton and her top aides catered to the interests of the Clinton Foundations top donors despite conflict of interest concerns at the State Department.

The latest probe brought to light 296 never publicly seen emails from Clinton’s private server, including 44 emails that Judicial Watch, the conservative watchdog group who issued the FOA, says Clinton failed to turn over to the State Department. The heavily redacted emails show her top aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, working very closely with top Clinton officials such as Doug Band.

Clinton calls for higher taxes, more regulations, new phase of Obamacare

Hillary Clinton vowed Thursday to kill the Pacific trade deal that she helped push just a few years ago as President Obama’s top diplomat, hoping to win over wavering liberals and steal some of the anti-trade thunder from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Mrs. Clinton also promised an expansive role for the government in managing the U.S. economy, calling for higher taxes to fund more infrastructure, more regulations to rein in Wall Street, a new phase of Obamacare, a round of school construction and incentives to get businesses to hire blue-collar workers and do more manufacturing in the U.S.

The Democratic presidential nominee took pages from Mr. Obama’s economic plans, echoing his calls for an infrastructure bank and a clean energy surge. Still, she kept the president at arm’s length by acknowledging “very real economic challenges” throughout his eight years in office.

“There is too much inequality, too little upward mobility. It is just too hard to get ahead today,” she said. “But there are common-sense things that your government could do that would give Americans more opportunities to succeed.”

Her solutions also borrowed from Sen. Bernard Sanders, big-business advocates and even her husband, former President Bill Clinton, resulting in an economic plan that tried to offer a little of something to everyone.
The DOJ Is Funneling Tons of Money to Sanctuary CitiesThe conservative legal group Judicial Watch has uncovered yet another government scandal. In a new report, the team has found that the Department of Justice has funneled millions of dollars to America's sanctuary cities - localities that house illegal immigrants.
The U.S. Department of Justice gave $342,168,401 in grant money to 10 “sanctuary” states and cities that shield illegal aliens, even violent ones, from deportation by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials, according to a Judicial Watch report.
Anyone who is familiar with Kate Steinle should be incensed by this report. Steinle, a 32-year-old woman, was murdered by an illegal immigrant last summer in the sanctuary city of San Francisco. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had requested to detain the killer, who had been deported five times previously, but were denied after he was sent to a detention center in the sanctuary city.

Now the government is awarding California and other states and cities with the same policies.
