Hillary Clinton might still be wondering “What Happened” as far as losing the election goes, and now, her and former President Bill Clinton’s foundation is under investigation by the FBI.
As Clinton has been tweeting her concerns over families worrying about their children having health care, FBI agents in Little Rock, Arkansas, have been delving into the Clinton Foundation. So what’s going on?
The FBI is looking into whether the Clintons did any favors for donors who contributed to their organization.
On Thursday, The Hill reported:
The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.
FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in the coming weeks.
The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
Fox News confirmed the report from The Hill on Thursday evening, via the Twitter account of “Special Report”:
Fox News can confirm the Department of Justice has launched a new investigation into Hillary Clinton.

Clinton’s spokesperson, Nick Merrill, called the news a “sham” on Friday, adding that Republicans have tried to turn the foundation “into a political football.”
Clinton herself has yet to offer a comment about the investigation. However, this isn’t the former presidential nominee’s first time being investigated by the FBI.
