Subpoena for Clinton Foundation

Investigators ask for records.

The investigation against Bill and Hillary Clinton is getting serious. The Washington Post reports that subpoenas have been issued to the family foundation:

Investigators with the State Department issued a subpoena to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation last fall seeking documents about the charity’s projects that may have required approval from the federal government during Hillary Clinton’s term as secretary of state, according to people familiar with the subpoena and written correspondence about it.

The subpoena also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.

A state department spokesperson refused to comment to The Post on the documents that they have seen. The newspaper says that while they have seen some documents related to the investigation, they cannot describe the full extent of the investigation.
