Fox News’ Tucker Carlson had Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on his show Friday to discuss the multiple investigations surrounding former Secretary of State state Hillary Clinton.
Fox News’ Trace Gallagher reported that the U.S. Attorney’s office and FBI have actually been looking into the Clinton Foundation for months. Additionally, the Department of Justice is exploring the Clinton email probe, the Uranium One investigation, and the allegation that the Obama administration quashed a DEA investigation into Hezbollah narco-terror activities in order to smooth the way for the Iran nuclear deal.
“There may have been acts that occurred at the State Department as a consequence of bribes paid to the Clinton Foundation, which are creating an ongoing security concern for the United States of America,” Gaetz said. “Take, for example, the Hezbollah story you just mentioned. It’s not just the cocaine that’s being trafficked — you’ve got Hezbollah acting in common cause with narco-traffickers in South America to move opium, to move heroin, to move people into the United States.”
Gaetz said the accusation against the Clinton Foundation is that it “was just a money laundering operation where people paid in order to have access to the State Department.” He added that there “were notations on particular documents and bids where people would write F.O.B. (friend of Bill) which means those were donors to the Clinton Foundation and as a consequence they were given special treatment.”
He told Carlson that it is important to investigate the matter because “we don’t have people right now acting as vendors on behalf of the United States of America — not as a consequence of their merit or what they can do, but because they’re friends and potentially donors to the Clinton Foundation.”
Gaetz explained that 20 members of the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions months ago, saying that they have to look into these matters because of the ongoing security concerns.
“Finally now, we have Hillary Clinton dealing with investigations cascading down on her like it’s a bomb cyclone. I think the day’s coming soon, Tucker, when we’ll be sending an ‘I’m with her’ t-shirt to Hillary Clinton’s cellmate.”
