“I Know Where All The Bodies Are Buried”: Clinton Foundation CFO Spills Beans To Investigators

12141

The CFO of the Clinton Foundation, thinking he was “meeting an old professional acquaintance,” admitted to investigators that the charity had widespread problems with governance, accounting and conflicts of interest, and that Bill Clinton has been commingling business and personal expenses for a long time, reports The Hill‘s John Solomon.

Clinton Foundation CFO Andrew Kessel made the admissions to investigators from MDA Analytics LLC – a firm run by “accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators,” who have been probing the Clinton Foundation for some time.

Kessel told MDA “There is no controlling Bill Clinton. He does whatever he wants and runs up incredible expenses with foundation funds, according to MDA’s account of the interview. “Bill Clinton mixes and matches his personal business with that of the foundation. Many people within the foundation have tried to caution him about this but he does not listen, and there really is no talking to him.”

MDA compiled Kessel’s statements, as well as over 6,000 pages of evidence from a whistleblower they had been working with separately, and which they filed secretly over a year ago with the FBI and IRS. MDA has alleged that the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities, and may owe millions in unpaid taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark. And last week, a federal prosecutor suddenly asked for documents from their private investigation.

The memo also claims Kessel confirmed to the private investigators that private lawyers reviewed the foundation’s practices — once in 2008 and the other in 2011 — and each found widespread problems with governance, accounting and conflicts of interest.

“I have addressed it before and, let me tell you, I know where all the bodies are buried in this place,” the memo alleges Kessel said.

The 48-page submission, dated Aug. 11, 2017, supports its claims with 95 exhibits, including internal legal reviews that the foundation conducted on itself in 2008 and 2011. –The Hill

“There is probable cause that the Clinton Foundation has run afoul of IRS rules regarding tax-exempt charitable organizations and has acted inconsistently with its stated purpose,” MDA alleged in its memo, adding “The Foundation should be investigated for all of the above-mentioned improprieties. The tax rules, codes, statutes and the rule of law should and must be applied in this case.”

Foundation officials confirmed that Kessel met with MDA investigators, but said that he “strongly denies that he said or suggested hat the Clinton Foundation or President Clinton engaged in inappropriate or illegal activities.”

“Mr. Kessel believed he was meeting an old professional acquaintance who was looking for business from the Foundation,” the foundation added in a statement.

MDA was specifically created to investigate 501c3 charities, and researched the Clinton Foundation at its own expense in the hope that the whistleblower submission they compiled might result in a government reward if the IRS was able to corroborate wrongdoing and recover tax dollars.

The IRS sent multiple letters in 2017 and 2018 to MDA Analytics, confirming it had received the submission and it was “still open and under active investigation.” But, shortly before last month’s election, the agency sent a preliminary denial letter indicating it did not pursue the allegations for reasons that ranged from a lack of resources to possible expiration of the statute of limitations on some allegations.

I asked a half-dozen former federal investigators to review the submission and key evidence; all said the firm’s analysis of tax-exempt compliance issues would not be that useful to federal agencies that have their own legal experts for that. But they stressed the evidence of potential criminality was strong and warranted opening an FBI or IRS probe. –The Hill

According to retired FBI supervisory agent Jeffrey Danik, MDA’s work is “a very good roadmap for investigation, adding “When you have the organization’s own lawyers using words like ‘quid pro quo,’ ‘conflicts of interest’ and ‘whistleblower protections,’ you have enough to get permission to start interviewing and asking questions.”

While some of the documents MDA submitted were marked as attorney-client privileged, Danik doesn’t think that should be an issue for federal investigators – given that since special counsel Robert Mueller “got the OK to investigate Michael Cohen and his attorney-client communications with President Trump, I imagine that hurdle could be overcome under the crime-fraud exception.”

Meanwhile, next week a GOP Congressional subcommittee led by Rep. Mark Meadows (NC) will review the work of John Huber – the US attorney designated a year ago by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate “all things Clinton.” The hearing will establish how much money and resources Huber has dedicated, and whether we can expect to see any recommendations regarding Hillary Clinton’s transfer of classified information from her insecure private server, along with the foundation’s activities.

To that end, a prosecutor working under Huber called MDA analytics last week and requested copies of their Clinton Foundation evidence, according to Solomon.

A prosecutor working for Huber called MDA Analytics last week, seeking copies of their evidence, according to sources. The firm told the prosecutor that the FBI has possessed the evidence in its Little Rock office since early 2018, the sources said.

Some evidence that MDA investigators cited is public source, such as internal foundation reviews hacked in 2016 and given to WikiLeaks. Other materials were provided to the investigators by foreign governments that have done business with the charity, or by foundation insiders.

One of the nonpublic documents is an interview memo the MDA Analytics investigators penned after meeting with Kessel in late November 2016 at the Princeton Club in New York City. –The Hill

Kessel’s inadvertent admissions, meanwhile, track closely with comments made in 2008 written by a private lawyer named Kumiki Gibson – who the Clinton Foundation hired to study its governance. Gibson flagged concerns over improper commingling of charitable and private business.

“The work of the Foundation and the President are intertwined in a way that creates confusion at, and undermines the work of, the Foundation at virtually every level,” he wrote, warning that such actions pose “reputational and legal challenges, and with confusion, inefficiencies and waste.”

Specifically, the memo warned the foundation had not created policies and procedures “required by law” and that some of its leaders “appear to have interests that do not always align with those of the Foundation.”

It also raised the possibility of illegal activities, saying the foundation and its managers held an “anti-compliance attitude” and that there were lower-level employees who “begged” for whistleblower protections after witnessing “less than fully compliant behavior or even worse are asked to participate in or condone it.” –The Hill

Meanwhile, a 2011 review by the law firm Simpson Thatcher noted “material weaknesses” found by auditors in 2009 and 2010, such as a lack of board meetings and unsigned board minutes – and also found that some foundation employees “abuse expense privileges,” while others had conflicts of interest.

We look forward to hearing anything further from Solomon and The Hill on whatever Huber has been up to.

  1. Gillibrand the mermaid, sexy kamala and now we have Abrams and Gillum, how worse can it get about candidates for president.

    • They will both testify, eventually, and both will repeat variations, again, of, “I don’t recall,” “I don’t remember,” “I have no recollection of that,” and Dems will brag they “testified for hours and answered all the questions. Liberal Dem lovers in FBI and “Justice” will find “…no evidence of wrongdoing…” and we will move on. As before. Must be nice to have a charmed life and friends terrified of your ability to extract revenge.

      • Yeah and if a Republican lies its jail time or fails to remember its a crime. When or when will this stop this is a scary time in our country its not a party issue its a country issue.

    • I agree. I’ll believe it when I see both Bubba and the HillBitch in orange. Or at least when I see the investigation and questioning on TV. What ratings as people watch to see if the Clintons catch their asses! Of course, they’ll both just lie thru their teeth.

  2. He might know where the bodies are . But if he’s not careful he will be one of the bodies . With the corruption in the DOJ and FBI And CIA and the entire judicial system . All I can say is I will be praying for you .

  3. If this is true, this guy needs to be highly protected. Far too many others tied to the Clinton’s nefarious conduct have suddenly turned up dead. Wouldn’t it be nice if this got the same DOJ and media attention as the Trump witch-hunt!

  4. Those two are a real couple of criminals!!!! I wonder if she still has balls enough to run for President again, I would guess she would, even with all this BAD publicity they are getting, they have to know and read about it, I don’t see how they can show their faces in public, but that’s just how gutsy they are, in this case gutsy doesn’t mean courageous.

    • They’re not gutsy, nor are they in anyway embarrassed or ashamed. The clintons don’t care what any body thinks and will do whatever they want. WHY? Because Ex-Presidents always get a pass! Washington is corrupt to the core and if they take down the clintons it will take them down too. This is why they are so adamant about attacking everything that Trump does, because he is exposing them, left and right! I’m betting this guy will shoot himself in the back of the head or accidentally drown in a kiddie pool.

  5. Watch out – people are going to be suicided by the Clinton’s over this. What’s the body count around them of suspicious deaths? 80 and counting

  6. You can keep telling us what criminal acts these people commit and make us sick to our stomachs. But who is it that is supposed to do anything about this. Why are there endless investigations on both sides and yet nothing has ever been done to hold anyone high up accountable….Will that ever happen. If you tell me the left has put in place massive walls and judges and lawyers and laws to keep themselves from going down….you may as well stop telling us right now. Because there will be no end. If that is not true….why is it that whoever is given the authority to bring them down is not being badgered and harrassed. Why does media on neither side go after those people….Why does no one talk about it….what can be done to stop them , instead of what they do….WE know what they do….over and over and over.

  7. LOCK THEM BOTH UP, until they died in the BIG HOUSE SLAMMER, and freeze all of their money and use it to do some pay backing, to those they have screwed over, and then while they are locked up, investigate the long list of suspicious suicides

  8. Bill Clinton is no stranger to conflicts of interest:

    ” By James Langton in Washington12:00AM GMT 21 Jan 2001
    IN his final executive act as president, Bill Clinton yesterday dramatically pardoned more than 100 Americans including Susan McDougal, his former Whitewater business partner, and Patty Hearst, the former terrorist.

    Miss Hearst, the granddaughter of the newspaper baron, William Randolph Hearst, had served three years in prison after joining the left-wing Symbionese Liberation Army that kidnapped her in 1974. Mr Clinton also pardoned his own brother, Roger, who was convicted for cocaine possession in Arkansas and who was among a number of drug offenders that Mr Clinton believed had been punished too harshly.

    There was, however, no reprieve for Webster Hubbell, a former partner in Mrs Clinton’s Little Rock law firm who was convicted as a result of the Whitewater investigation.”

    Web Hubbell – Hillary’s boy toy and most likely Chelsea’s real father a DNA test would easily prove or disprove this but don’t ever expect to see one. The same goes for Barry whoever the hell he really is. The Obama’s in Kenya would love to see a DNA/paternity test preformed as they no longer believe they are related by blood. There is also the claim of Danny Williams who claims to be Bill Clintons son. Look at pictures of Chelsea and Web – then pictures af Bill and Danny determine for yourself who looks like who.

  9. look at the high waste, and pollution our cars are producing, a 200 mpg Porge vapor carburetor sitting in the patient office collecting dust, liquid gas does not burn, Volkswagen has a 264 mpg diesel not coming here, boycott the oil company owned auto company’s, spread the word.
    The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, have this as your debate, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, tell every one not buy a new car / truck, to boycott the auto company’s, when they can’t sell their pieces of junk low mileage vehicles, they will have to bring out water to hydrogen powered vehicles, and kits to change the vehicles now that we have, just think what our world would be like with free energy. Do you want your world back? spread the word boycott the auto company’s that are destroying our world. the inventor of the water to hydrogen auto was murdered by our Democrat Government, get mad get real mad of the Democrats. Also audit all the Senator’s and representatives, they have wasted, and stole our money, make them repay all, and tax them. Do these 2 things, and the Demo rats will be finished, don’t do this and the civil war, will escalate, and the economy will collapse, get this out all over the USA. this is the only thing that will bring the economy around.put this out , and spread the word to boycott the auto company’s don’t buy a new car/ or truck. do this Trump, and we will have our dreams back again.

    • It will never happen! WHY? Because the majority of the people are possessed with needing to “keep up with the Jones'”. Americans can’t fathom the idea of driving a car older than 10 years old and “God forbid” one that is 20 tears old. They can’t do without cell phones, tablets/laptops, and they can’t do without most other modern conveniences. You’ll NEVER get a sizable number of them to NO buy a new car. As well you will never get them to switch to free energy because all they want to do is flip a switch and have shit work. The war is coming, and it will likely start in 2020 when Trump loses the election due to MASSIVE voting irregularities.

  10. With all of the books that have and are being written, Why doesn’t someone write a book about the “Clinton Death List” ? The Clintons truly believe that “DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES” !

  11. FYI folks, John Huber is a US attorney with the full authority to indite and prosecute. He is not like Muller who can only offer suggestions and recommendations. I fully expect Clinton and her ilk will be brought to justice soon. New sheriff in town, remember? Huber and Horowitz, the IG, have been investigating Clinton for over a year. Also, there are many others that will go down when the timing is right.

  12. They may beat our legal system but you would not want to peek into their eternal abode for just one second.
    God never loss, God is not losing and God will never lose

  13. The simple fact is that the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, John Kerry, and all the other bottom feeding swamp dwellers in Washington will never be brought to justice in this life. That would put at risk the State Department, the Justice Department, and members of Congress who are complicit in the crimes of the Clintons. In addition it would probably endanger foreign under the table deals this country has made through agents and CIA operatives. The swamp is so deep, and the muck so pervasive, no one will do anything except begin investigation after investigation, to satisfy the outcry of the American people-with little to show for it but the claim of “doing something.” A distraction, nothing more. We are whistling in the wind when we insist some one look into it. That is why the Clintons do not hide away in shame-they have no shame.

  14. The Clintons are SO EVIL! I will be surprised, if Andrew Kessel does not end up mysteriously dead! DRAIN THE STINKING SWAMP, TRUMP! If Hillary had been elected, all of this would have been forever buried! Nothing ever sticks to these corrupt, evil creeps! No wonder, the American people, have such a depressed, sad, negative attitude, about politics! Look at how much trouble I have had, getting these comments and information, to “post!” A lion was walking through the jungle, eating elephant droppings. One native asked another: ?Why would that lion do that?” The other native said: “because he just ate a politician and is trying to get the taste out of his mouth! Need I say any more?…..Paul A. Bullock

  15. That Foundation was nothing but a criminal enterprise from the day it started. What saddens me, is the individuals who truly believed in it and it’s mission to help people. Those individuals who gave of their hard earned paychecks, who really thought the money was going to help people, like the Haitian people and the African people. They are the ones who were truly wronged by the deceit of the Clinton cartel. And I know that some people (myself included) have said you have to be a complete and utter moron to give money to the Clintons. But I think that there were some people who thought that there was no way she could actually be as corrupt as she is. And I think that they are going to be very disappointed in the Clintons. Personally I think that they should hang (which is the appropriate punishment for treason).

  16. Jail is the one place Bill and Hillary will never go. It should be obvious to everyone why they are above the law. They know whose closets have skeletons. If they go down, a boat load of people along with many members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, could go down with them.

    The only people that will be prosecuted will be the scapegoats forced to take the rap for them. As long as the people allow it, they will continue to be above the law and will keep thumbing their noses at all of us. I would be pleasantly surprised to see them in orange jump suits and handcuffs. Not going to happen.

  17. So given what Americans have witnessed regarding both Clintons for the past 30 years, does news about the operation of their charity surprise ANYONE. Of course not. But what has apparently been known about the charity for many years, at the very least, the ears of the IRS should have perked up and wondered if there was a BIG fish to catch to send a message to other high rollers using foundation charities as income and tax shelters. Just about every high income professional athlete uses the foundation scheme as a tool to manage their wealth. The major difference is that their charities actually provide charity to the under privileged. I’ve seen reports that the Clinton charity only 10% of donations is used for actual charity activities. That alone should have been a red flag for the IRS to investigate to ensure the foundation should retain it’s tax exempt status. But then, it’s the Clintons isn’t it. But there are signs that the Clinton armor has chinks in it and their attacking personalities are not keeping opponents and critics at arms length any more.

  18. It is my hope that they get Hillary and Bill into prison forever for there evilness and all involve go down with her!!!! The sad thing is that these Democrats have brainwashed so many Americans and they to will do everything to protect their party candidates, and no investigation is going to matter to them no matter how much proof they find because they will never believe it until they all have lost their freedom and the country they once new is no longer a great one but a country that will be completely government controlled and the people will no longer have a voice!!! I suggest that all the young millennials or just all the kids in this country talk with your parents your grandparents and learn from them for these are the people that you know you can trust to give you the truth about what our country’s history is and are the ones that will give guidance!!! For all the young should be communicating with their parents on what they are learning in school and listen to the advise that your parents and grandparents give to you, for they are not going to try and brainwash you they will give more truths then what a teacher will ever give you or what some radical movement will give you!!! I don’t know if it is too late in getting back to the rule of law and believing in our Constitution and Capitalistic society and in all the freedom that we have, but we are losing it all at a rapid pace!!! For everyone is being lead down a path that has no common sense for we should all know that you can’t please everyone for everyone doesn’t think the same and it will always be like that!!! But if we all live by the laws and Constitution that we have been given we can not fail as a country for we became a great country because of our Constitution and laws and we are letting these Democrats take everything away for their ideology is never going to work and that is a fact of life!!!!

  19. This is why they want Chelsea to get into government so she can protect them. She must know what’s going on. The Clinton family is almost as corrupt as the Kennedy family.
