Clinton Foundation Responds to Resuscitated 'Investigation'

As the Gray Lady noted earlier, career prosecutors shut this down in 2016 over lack of evidence, but new interest comes as Donald has taken the highly unusual step of calling for investigations of political rivals. Normally I'm tickled to pull out this gif -- but it's really gotten to the point that I can't even believe this is the country I once was very proud to call home. #benghazi #butheremails

Clinton Foundation Statement from Craig Minassian:
"Time after time, the Clinton Foundation has been subjected to politically motivated allegations, and time after time these allegations have been proven false. None of this has made us waver in our mission to help people. The Clinton Foundation has demonstrably improved the lives of millions of people across America and around the world, while earning top ratings from charity watchdog groups in the process. There are real issues in our society needing attention that the Clinton Foundation works hard to solve every day. So we're going to stay focused on what really matters."
Office of Secretary Clinton Statement from Nick Merrill:
“Let’s call this what it is: a sham. This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football. It began with a long-debunked project spearheaded by (former Trump adviser) 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. The goal is to distract from the indictments, guilty pleas, and accusations of treason from Trump’s own people at the expense of our justice system’s integrity. It’s disgraceful, and should be concerning to all Americans.”
