According to a report by The Daily Caller's Richard Pollock, there was no order from FBI Headquarters to the New York field office to halt its investigation of corruption in the Clinton Foundation.
Quoting an unnamed source, the report states the field agents were given an order 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. The report states:
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 which source at FBI Headquarters issued the order.
The same source broke the news to The DCNF that the FBI was conducting a multi-city probe of the foundation in as many as five cities: New York, Little Rock, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Miami. The source did not know the status of the bureau's work in the four other cities.
President-elect Donald Trump has given what appear to be purposely contradictory statements about whether or not his Justice Department would pursue criminal prosecution of Clinton, her staffers or anyone tied to the widely reported pay-for-play schemes at the Clinton Foundation. It would appear the FBI is planning to proceed regardless of the message it may be getting from the president-elect.
