Breaking: IRS Launches Investigation Into Clinton Foundation

Breaking this evening, according to reports:

“Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen has forwarded House Republicans’ allegations against the Clinton Foundation to the agency’s exempt organizations office for its consideration.

“This program considers all referrals and will send you a separate acknowledgement letter when it receives your information,” Koskinen said last week in a letter to Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.).

Blackburn and dozens of other Republican House members sent a letter to Koskinen and the heads of the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission earlier this month asking the agencies to investigate the Clinton Foundation. The lawmakers said that media reports and IRS filings “portray a lawless ‘Pay to Play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years and should be investigated.”
