The Gazette: Feds Must Investigate Clinton’s Potential Pay-to-Play

The Gazette 

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been our neighbor since 2012. He’s lives at the Federal Correctional Institution in Englewood, where he will stay for at least eight more years.

Blagojevich traded in his government job. Six of his 17 felony convictions involve asking a campaign worker to pressure a hospital executive for a donation. The governor had arranged a health care grant for the hospital and prosecutors proved he wanted quid pro quo for his re-election campaign.

Throughout much of Hillary Clinton’s boring email scandal, Americans have lacked a clear motive for the former secretary of state’s extraordinary measures to hide government emails. Her lawyers deleted tens of thousands of conversations as an FBI investigation commenced.

Suddenly, the email scheme seems less mysterious. The legal foundation Judicial Watch claims deleted emails reveal quid pro quo arrangements linked to donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Wall Street Journal last month detailed a possible quid pro quo arrangement with a Swiss bank that paid money directly to the Clinton household.

The Washington Post summarized a few of the email revelations:

“A sports executive who was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation and whose firm paid Bill Clinton millions of dollars in consulting fees wanted help getting a visa for a British soccer player with a criminal past.

“The crown prince of Bahrain, whose government gave more than $50,000 to the Clintons’ charity and who participated in its glitzy annual conference, wanted a last-minute meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
