Justice inquiry into Hillary Clinton's business dealings languishes

A Justice Department review of business dealings tied to Hillary Clinton -- championed by President Donald Trump and his allies -- has wound down with officials not finding enough evidence to recommend the formal opening of a criminal investigation, according to current and former US officials.

The Justice Department has not formally closed the review, which was led by US Attorney John Huber of Utah, the officials told CNN.
A spokeswoman for Huber deferred comment to the Justice Department's spokeswoman, who declined to comment. The Department of Justice also declined to comment to the Washington Post, which first reported that Huber's review had essentially come to an end.
The probe, which launched in November 2017 under then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was given momentum by Trump and conservatives on Capitol Hill who pushed for greater scrutiny of the former Democratic presidential nominee.

Huber was said to be examining allegations that donors to the Clinton Foundation had been given special treatment by Clinton when she served as secretary of state in the first half of the Obama administration.
The allegations first were investigated in 2015-16 and were based at least in part on claims published in the 2015 opposition research book "Clinton Cash," which was written by conservative writer Peter Schweizer. Trump and his allies have criticized the Justice Department for using opposition research paid for by Democrats in the probe of ties between associates of the Trump campaign and Russia.

The review also explored allegations that a Russian nuclear energy agency donated to the Clinton Foundation in order to later secure her approval for its purchase of Uranium One, a uranium mining company, when Clinton led the State Department.

1. Does not matter . . .

Republicans will investigate HRC until the end days. That is how much they hate her.

3. Wonder how much taxpayer money was wasted on that investigation...

Repugs are notorious for wasting money on worthless investigations that discover nothing.

4. Especially when it comes to a Clinton. They feel a need to damage their historical

accomplishments.
