ANOTHER Obama Agency Caught Protecting Hillary

Crime doesn’t pay.

Unless you have the power of the White House behind you.

Barack Obama doesn’t want a Republican to win in 2016 and undo his insane power grabs.

So his cronies in the federal government are using any means necessary to stop Hillary Clinton from being held accountable for rampant criminal and unethical behavior.

The latest goon squad with federal ID badges? The usually-boring Federal Trade Commission.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The agency, which is charged with ensuring consumer protection, rejected a request to investigate the nonprofit Clinton Foundation despite “serious and well-documented” concerns from lawmakers, said Matthew Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney who serves as executive director for the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), an ethics watchdog group.

The FTC penned a letter to Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.) this week rejecting a request from she and 21 members of Congress that the FTC review the nonprofit status of the Clinton Foundation after reports raised questions about the charity’s transparency and possible deception.

...“It’s shameful that a federal agency, which prides itself on exposing deceptive practices and advocating for a level playing field, has turned into a partisan defender of the Clintons and their family business interests,” Whitaker stated Friday.

“Last year, I expressed similar concerns when I asked the IRS to investigate the Clinton Foundation for making improper payments of nearly $350,000 to erase campaign debt from Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign,” he continued. “As a nonprofit organization, Clinton Foundation income cannot be used to benefit a private individual.”
