A resurgence of law and order and justice may be on the horizon if a judge investigates the highly suspect nonprofit founded by two prominent Democrats 20 years ago, former President Bill Clinton and veteran politician Hillary Clinton.
The initial scandalous allegation of financial corruption against the political power couple was brought by whistleblowers, presented to the IRS, and investigated in Dallas in 2016.
The case has been revived by a U.S. tax magistrate following the conclusion of special counsel John Durham’s ‘Russiagate’ investigation, which uncovered additional indications of corruption within the foundation’s activities.
During the time that Hillary Clinton was the Democratic nominee for president, The Dallas Review reported on the IRS investigation.
Here’s what they wrote at that time:
“Earlier this year, 64 GOP members of Congress asked the IRS to investigate why the foundation can keep its nonprofit status. The letter includes “media reports” claiming pay-to-play relationships between former President Bill Clinton, who received hefty speaking fees, and decisions made by Hillary Clinton to approve choices that benefited foundation donors. The sources of these reports range from The New York Times to hit-piece investigative books.
In July, the IRS informed Congress members that the review had begun via letters. The letter also indicated that the evaluation would be conducted by the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division (TE/GE) office in Dallas.
IRS spokespersons in Dallas and Washington refuse to comment on why the audit is being conducted in Dallas. Even this information, according to the spokespersons, would violate Code 6103, which prohibits them from discussing ongoing examinations. IRS officials declined to comment on the Dallas office, including its capacity, or the TE/GE program in general.
On its website, the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division refers to the operators of nonprofits as “customers.” Their mission statement is: “To provide our customers top quality service by helping them understand and comply with applicable tax laws and to protect the public interest by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.”
But nothing happened to the foundation, which continues to operate and accept donations.
A judge has decided to revisit the details of the Clinton Foundation in light of the recent Special Counsel report by John Durham, which found “significant failures to investigate allegations against” the Clinton charity.
The original complainants, John Moynihan, a former federal agent, and Larry Doyle, a corporate tax compliance expert, were granted an extension and given a deadline to present new evidence to the court.
Late in the month of May, the two posted a status update with a link to the court documents:

We are not displeased.

“Previously, U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson had refused an IRS request to dismiss the whistleblower case, which was initially filed in 2017. Notably, three years ago, he instructed the tax agency to disclose whether it had conducted a criminal investigation into the foundation. His request was prompted by a puzzling “gap” found in the IRS’s records, raising suspicions and prompting further inquiry; the outlet noted further,” Jon Doughtery reported on more of the details of the situation for Conservative Brief, adding:
“Following the IRS’s filing of a new motion to dismiss, all parties involved in the case presented their arguments over the course of the past year. However, on Monday, Gustafson decided to delay ruling on those motions and instead requested new arguments considering three recent court rulings that have set important precedents.”
Two whistleblowers posted additional information about the case on Twitter:

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has attempted to close the Clinton Corruption case for years and has been thwarted each time, frustrating the agency and leaving the case in purgatory with no real justice for the American people. However, this may soon change.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
“U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson has already once before denied an IRS request to dismiss the whistleblower case, first brought in 2017. And three years ago, he ordered the tax agency to reveal whether it criminally investigated the foundation, citing a mysterious “gap” in its records,” according to media reports. CONTINUE READING…
