The Clintons just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
With claims of pay-for-play looming, a US Tax Court judge has ordered the Internal Revenue Service to reveal whether the Clinton Foundation was the subject of a criminal investigation for fraud.

According to an April 22 decision obtained by Just The News, the tax agency’s Whistleblower Office previously stated that no such investigation was undertaken by the Criminal Investigation division, but Judge David Gustafson insisted that the assertion “was not backed by the administrative record and therefore constituted an abuse of power.”
Gustafson referred the complaint to the IRS Whistleblower Office, which would “investigate” a “void” in the agency’s records.
The judge said, “The WO [Whistleblower Office] must further investigate to decide if the CI [Criminal Investigation division] continued with an investigation based on petitioners’ knowledge and gathered proceeds.” “It is clear that we should remand the case to the WO to investigate this gap.”
A prosecution for “IRS dereliction of duty” will not take place, according to Gustafson.
“Petitioners evidently anticipate a trial in which they intend to establish wrongdoing and tax evasion by the target organizations, as well as IRS dereliction of duty,” he said. “In this scenario, there will be no such trial.”
In 2018, two financial analysts, John Moynihan and Larry Doyle, claimed to have discovered proof of pay-to-play and financial crimes in the Clinton Foundation, which is run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her husband Bill Clinton, and their daughter Chelsea Clinton.
In December of that year, the two whistleblowers were placed before the House Oversight Committee.
Moynihan and Doyle testified that they conducted a thorough forensic investigation focused on public documents, tax filings, and private interviews with Clinton Foundation officials.
Clinton Foundation CFO Andrew Kessel admitted to investigators in a taped conversation that Bill Clinton used the foundation’s bank accounts for personal expenses, according to the investigators.
Moynihan and Doyle have claimed to have seen emails from the foundation from 2002 negotiating agreements with the Mozambique government.
Even though the Clinton Foundation’s reported goal in IRS filings at the time was to create Bill Clinton’s presidential library, Moynihan said this was proof that the foundation was operating on behalf of foreign governments.
