Fox News: FBI ‘Actively and Aggressively’ Probing Clinton Foundation Corruption, ‘A Lot’ of Evidence


The FBI has been investigating a possible pay-to-play interaction between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department during Hillary Clinton's time as secretary of state for over a year, Fox News host Bret Baier reported Wednesday night.

"There's an avalanche of new information coming in every day, some of it from WikiLeaks, some from emails," Baier said. "The agents are actively and aggressively pursuing this case."

Baier said that the investigation is being led by the white collar crime division, the public corruption branch of the criminal investigative division of the FBI.

Sources told Fox News that the investigation is a "high priority" and was based off interviews with people related to the case. The FBI amassed a "great deal of evidence," even before the ongoing WikiLeaks releases of hacked emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta's account.

The investigation into emails found on disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner's computer is being run by the national security division of the FBI. The FBI believes that some of the emails on the laptop came from Clinton's private server. Weiner is the stranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The emails that were found on Weiner's laptop appear to be new and not duplicates. It is not yet known if the emails contain classified information.
