Wall Street Analyst on ‘Explosive Evidence’ Against the Clintons, FBI Probe by Ekaterina Blinova – Sputnik News
Portions of the recent House hearing into the Clinton Foundation’s alleged fraud and pay-to-play schemes were really riveting, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel told Sputnik. He expressed hope that the hearing may lead to a reform of legislation on charities, to ensure transparency and credibility of their operation.
“I hope the FBI, finally, is engaged in a comprehensive investigationinto all elements of the Clinton charity network, and into past failures to prosecute Clinton Foundation frauds, particularly in the 1997 through 2005 period, but also from 2015 forward,” said Wall Street analyst and investigative journalist Charles Ortel, commenting on the recent hearing concerning the Clinton Foundation at the Subcommittee on Government Operations of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
During the hearing, which took place on 13 December 2018, financial investigators Lawerence W. Doyle and John Moynihan, with MDA Analytics, told Chairman Mark Meadows, R-NC, that FBI agents told Doyle that there is “an open and ongoing investigation” into the Clinton Foundation.

The financial experts, who have been conducting a private inquiry into the charity both nationally and internationally for the last two years, came to the conclusion that “the foundation was not a charitable organization per se, but in point of fact was a closely held family partnership.”
The Clinton Foundation “began acting as an agent of foreign governments ‘early in its life’ and throughout its existence,” Moynihan insisted, adding that as such, the organization should have been registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
Furthermore, Doyle specified that the Clinton Foundation owes from $400 million to $2.5 billion in taxes as it was actually “not entitled to its 501c3 tax-exempt privileges as outlined in IRS 170 (c)2.”
Commenting on the supposed FBI probe into the Clinton charity’s wrongdoings. Ortel stressed that “portions of the recent hearing before the House subcommittee… were, indeed, riveting and a resounding success.”
“Moynihan and Doyle are professional investigators and analysts who are not political partisans”, the investigative journalist highlighted. “At their own expense, these gentlemen and others working with them have taken the time to review substantial portions of a massive set of public filings submitted by the Clinton Foundation and/or by their agents in numerous jurisdictions, inside and outside the United States”.
The Wall Street analyst who has been carrying out a separate investigation into the Clinton Foundation‘s alleged fraud for the past three years, underscored that “numerous Clinton Foundation filings circulating in the public domain are false and materially misleading even as the Clintons and their allies and agents solicit and receive donations across state lines and across national boundaries”.
FBI Digging Into the Clinton Foundation
Referring to Doyle’s remark about the probe into the charity, Ortel recalled that “from the Inspector General (Justice Department) report of June 2018, we know ‘the FBI opened Clinton Foundation investigations’ in January 2016″.
“Early in 2018, we know that famed Australian investigative journalist Michael Smith (a former detective) pushed the FBI to investigate possible abuses arising from Australian government financial support for certain international initiatives of the Clinton Foundation,” the Wall Street analyst continued.
It is also known that the FBI mounted an investigation into the Clinton Foundation between 2001 and 2005. “yet failed to spot obvious frauds that are evident in public records still available readily”, he emphasised.
In addition, the FBI and others “did examine some of Hillary Clinton’s email traffic while she was secretary of state [2009 — 2013], yet seemingly were not curious enough why so few of the emails that she reluctantly turned over actually dealt with Clinton Foundation matters — a topic that should have given rise to many emails during her four years as US Secretary of State”, Ortel pointed out.
First Step in Long Overdue Process
According to the analyst, the reported FBI probe into the Clintons may lead to an indictment. He referred to two recent cases which ended up with convictions.
“In two recent cases, prosecutors won convictions against former US congressmen for fraudulent activities that seem to me far less serious than the long record of Clinton Foundation and Clinton Family abuses begun 23 October 1997 and still ongoing now”, he said citing the case of Steve Stockman who was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison and Corrine Brown, who is now in Federal prison for five years.
