The FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation struck at the heart of Bill and Hillary’s corrupt dealings.

But many thought comments made by President-elect Donald Trump after the election implied federal agents were going to stand down.

However a new report reveals just how much Bill and Hillary Clinton have to fear from this investigation.

Officials at the FBI field office in New York have been told to proceed with the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Officials at FBI headquarters instructed its New York field office to continue its corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation following the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump, according to a former senior law enforcement official.

The instructions ordered agents to “go forward” with their ongoing inquiry into the Clinton Foundation which is focusing on issues of corruption and money laundering, according to the source.

“There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work,” the former official told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview.

He said he received this information about a week ago and that the order originated from the bureau’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. well after the November 8 election.  He did not know who at FBI Headquarters issued the order.”

Some Trump supporters were concerned when Trump made comments during a meeting with New York Times reporters and editors indicating an investigation into the Clintons would fall off his list of priorities.

The media took it to mean Trump was backing off his campaign trail promise.

But was that all he actually said?

Not by a long shot.

Trump followed up by saying he was not taking an investigation of the Clintons off the table.

And it’s clear from the reports that, since the FBI field office in New York is continuing their corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation, Trump may have just been trying to be magnanimous in victory.

Do you believe the Clintons still face legal jeopardy?
