CLINTON HEARING FLOPS: Two Random Guys Say The IRS Should Decide What Happens

Published

on

Forensic investigators John Moynihan and Larry Doyle performed an independent audit of the Clinton Foundation and testified Thursday to the House Oversight Committee that the Foundation has some problems.

U.S. Attorney John Huber, who lots of people hope is more seriously investigating the Clintons, did not show up to the hearing and another witness could not make it due to a “death in the family.” It is possible, according to the witnesses, that there is an FBI investigation based out of Little Rock, Arkansas into the Clinton Foundation, but the FBI is historically corrupt.

Moynihan and Doyle stated under oath some things that close observers have already known for a long time. They would not hand over their documents to the Committee, even though they handed them over to the IRS and FBI. Moynihan said the IRS should determine what happens to the Clinton Foundation.

“We have a submission of probable cause to the IRS,” Moynihan said.

“It is a claim of probable cause that the Foundation operated outside of the bounds of their approval by the IRS. That is our claim,” Moynihan said. He said the Foundation “far exceeded the purposes” of its non-profit status.

“The Foundation was not a charitable foundation per say, but was in fact a closely held family partnership…sought in large measure to advance the personal interests” of its members, said Larry Doyle.

The investigators also said that the Clinton Foundation should have registered under FARA because the organization was clearly operating as an agent of foreign governments.

Doyle noted that the Clinton Foundation was operating as a foreign agent of the government of Mozambique in 2002.

“It was plainly obvious, based on emails we reviewed, that this was not a Clinton Foundation program per se…They were brokering money, and they were brokering pharmaceuticals…They were an agent of money through these donors…They negotiated these relationships with the pharmaceutical companies. By the same token, they were brokering the pharmaceuticals and taking the vig.”

“Less than one tenth of one percent of the donors gave 80 percent of the money,” Doyle noted about the Foundation.

This is all well and good, but the IRS is obviously never going to investigate the Clintons and this is all pretty tame information for people who have been following this interminable Deep State fact-finding grind over the last two years.

Oh well.

BEWARE: New ‘Conservative Economics’ Think Tank by National Review Hack is Another #NeverTrump Grift

Columnist Oren Cass has a history of opposing Trump and denigrating his supporters.

Published

on

Public policy analyst and conservative author Oren Cass announced today that he would be establishing American Compass, a thinktank with a focus on populist economics that is set to open in May.

“Delighted to announce the formation of American Compass, whose mission is to restore an economic consensus that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity,” Cass wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

While Cass may act like he wants to offer an “America First” vision for conservatism, his history of writings at National Review indicate that he is another Never Trumper attempting to reinvent himself in order to grift or co-opt the movement Trump is responsible for creating.

“Keeping any distance in the public mind between conservatism and Trumpism — not just checking his executive power, but continually repudiating his demagoguery and standing beside its targets — will require a Herculean effort in the coming years. Perhaps it will be impossible. But we should try, most importantly because it is the right thing to do,” Cass wrote in an article just days after Trump was elected President.

“Conservatives cannot afford to have their long-standing agenda become indistinguishable from the noxious elements of Trumpism… But to be viable (or deserving of respect) in the long term, Republicans will have to sustain that coalition independent of the antidemocratic and intolerant aspects that Trump leveraged. Some will smirk that this is impossible and guts the core appeal of Trumpism, but if that’s true, then we’ll have to ensure its gutting anyway,” he added.

In a previous op/ed, Cass lauded Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as the paragon of virtue while denigrating Trump’s brand of politics and insulting his fans.

“The real difference is that Romney held himself each day to the highest standards of decency and felt keenly the burdens of leadership, while Trump is an entertainer committed to delivering whatever irrational blather of insults, threats, and lies will earn the most retweets,” Cass wrote.

“The Trump phenomenon does not deserve elevation to the level of some reasonable response, needed movement, or well-earned comeuppance. It is best regarded as some combination of nihilistic joke and authoritarian fantasy,” he added.

In his latest screed laying out the philosophical basis for his new thinktank, Cass never mentions Trump, or even Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, even once. He instead name drops Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as the model for his brand of conservatism.

“The problems animating America’s resurgent populism are very real. They will be solved neither by the ideological alignments that governed us into the crisis nor by that populism itself, which has demonstrated no ability to formulate or implement a coherent response,” he wrote.

Cass’ new project will create a “coherent response” to mounting societal problems that fits neatly within the parameters of globalism and politics-as-usual. Similar to National Review editor Rich Lowry with his book “The Case for Nationalism,” Cass is another establishment Republican attempting to make himself relevant in a political landscape that has passed him by.
