The IRS has announced that it has opened an investigation into the Clinton Foundation “pay to play” schemes:
The IRS confirmed in a letter it is looking into claims of “pay-to-play” practices at the Clinton Foundation, after dozens of Republican lawmakers requested a review of potential “criminal conduct” at the organization founded by the family at the center of this week’s Democratic National Convention.
Commissioner John Koskinen wrote in a July 22 letter to Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn that the issue has been “forwarded” to the IRS “Exempt Organizations Examinations” program in Dallas.
“This program considers all referrals and will send you a separate acknowledgement letter when it receives your information,” he wrote, in a letter first reported by The Daily Caller.
It’s unclear whether the agency might take any further action. The letter noted that, under the law, they could not reveal “any actions we may take on this information.”
There’s a lot of excitement from the right about this and I hate to rain on anyone’s parade but just forget this now. It’s not as if justice shouldn’t be served, it’s that it just won’t. This is going to go the way of the email scandal- that is to say, I suspect the IRS is opening an investigation as a means of exonerating the Clinton’s just as did Comey. The IRS is hopelessly corrupt and that brings me to the topic at hand.
The left is now lecturing us about how dangerous and reckless Donald Trump is. Really? Let’s review.

It wasn’t Trump who’s weaponized all of the government.
