PRESSURE GROWS FOR PUBLIC CORRUPTION PROBE OF “LAWLESS, PAY-TO-PLAY” CLINTON FOUNDATION: Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is circulating a draft letter from GOP colleagues in the House of Representative to investigate a “pattern of dealing that personally enriched the Clintons at the expense of American foreign policy,” according to Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.

The letter will go when completed to FBI Director James Comey, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and Federal Trade Commission Chairman Edith Ramirez. A major focus of the letter is the relationship of the Foundation to for-profit giant Laureate Education.

“Laureate paid Bill Clinton $16.5 million for a part-time job as ‘honorary chancellor’ beginning in 2010, a year after Hillary Clinton joined the Department of State. Laureate also contributed between $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to the foundation’s web site.

“During that same time, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded $55 million to the International Youth Foundation, a unit run by David Becker, Laureate’s founder. The USAID is part of the State Department,” Pollock reports.

Blackburn’s effort comes hard on the heels of another House GOP missive in which 200 signers demand that Comey explain why he opted not to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton for violating anti-espionage and classification security laws by using a private email and server to conduct official U.S. government business while Secretary of State.
