The Justice Department has opened a new investigation of the Clinton Foundation over “pay to play” allegations during Hilary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, it’s been confirmed by multiple outlets.
The investigation is being led by the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI in Little Rock, Arkansas, which is where the Foundation started. That field office has already interviewed one witness in the last month, with more to come in the near future, according to law enforcement officials, reports The Hill.
Clinton’s chief spokesman Nick Merrill slammed the reopening of the investigation, calling it “disgraceful” and a political stunt.
"Let’s call this what it is: a sham," Merrill said. "This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football. It began with a now long-debunked project spearheaded by Steve Bannon during the presidential campaign. It continues with Jeff Sessions doing Trump’s bidding by heeding his calls to meddle with a department that is supposed to function independently."
