Thanks to reporting by the Wall Street Journal and others, we now know that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has undertaken an investigation into the Clinton Foundation, and has based part of its initial approach on the reporting in the book. If so many other media outlets have been able to build upon the book’s reporting, doesn’t it stand to reason that federal law enforcement officials might be able to as well?

Even the Clinton Foundation’s own internal audit revealed that some donors “may have an expectation of quid pro quo benefits in return for gifts.” That hasn’t stopped some from trying to smear the FBI investigation as a partisan witch hunt. But to do so ignores serious, independent reporting by major media outlets, publicly available documents, and, it seems, the truth.
