If, as reported, Donald Trump paid a large personal debt with funds from the Trump Foundation, he would have committed both tax fraud and felony embezzlement. No one in government has said a word about what, I assume, is a pending investigation.
Under the circumstances, the Herald’s article headlined “FBI agents sought Clinton Foundation probe,” following on the heels of a very dubious connection between Anthony Weiner’s computer and the closed Clinton email investigation, certainly leads to the impression that the FBI is trying to affect the coming election in violation of the Hatch Act and the customary 60-day moratorium on releasing such information.
The Herald and/or the Associated Press are also complicit in trying to sway the election.
The last two paragraphs of the article state that it is unclear if the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation is still under way and that the FBI may or may not be looking into certain Trump campaign irregularities.
Never miss a local story.
For readers who just glance at the headlines of an article appearing on page 14 of a newspaper and for those who don’t read articles in their entirety, once they feel they have the gist of the material, this information never existed.
