Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is very busy these days.
In the midst of investigations into then-FBI Director James Comey and hearings into the leaks and “unmasking” scandal that rocked the State Department, Grassley has another one lined up.
This one might come as a surprise…or maybe not, if you’re familiar with Hillary Clinton’s past.
Clinton, during her stint as Secretary of State, apparently pressured the Bangladesh Prime Minister to allow one of her Foundation donors remain in his position at the largest bank in that country and drop government investigations into his private investments.
And that pressure was significant, which has now led to a very big investigation.
“The Daily Caller News Foundation (TheDCNF) Investigative Group exclusively reported in May that Clinton sent top U.S. diplomats to pressure Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheik Hasina and her son Sajeeb Wazed in an effort to kill that country’s corruption investigation of Yunus and Grameen Bank.
Yunus was then managing director of the state-owned Bangladesh bank.
In a June 1, 2017, letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Grassley repeated TheDCNF charge that Clinton threatened Wazed with an IRS tax audit if his mother did not back away from the corruption probe. Wazed has lived in the U.S. for 17 years.
‘Co-mingling her official position as Secretary of State with her family foundation would be similarly inappropriate.
It is vital to determine whether the State Department had any role in the threat of an IRS audit against the son of the Prime Minister in retaliation for this investigation,’ Grassley continued.

Wazed told TheDCNF it was ‘astounding and mind boggling’ to him that between 2010 and 2012 senior State Department officials repeatedly pressured him to influence his mother to drop the Grameen Bank investigation.
‘They threatened me with the possibility of an audit by the Internal Revenue Service,’ Wazed said.
‘They would say over and over again, ‘Yunus has powerful friends’ and we all knew they were talking of Secretary Clinton. Everybody knew it was Mrs. Clinton.’”
What HASN’T this woman done? Her shocking political record reads like a career criminal’s rap sheet.
This case is important, but I almost feel that if they couldn’t get her on exposing classified documents, she will certainly skate on this one.
