Don't look now, but the IRS just launched an investigation into the Clinton Foundation

Timing is everything.

Hillary's having a rough week.  Not only are Trump's poll numbers climbing, the DNC email leak is overshadowing her convention and now she's going to have to deal with another investigation.  This time it's the IRS that's digging into the Clinton's affairs, by way of their shady slush fund charitable foundation.

As the Daily Caller reports in an exclusive:

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen referred congressional charges of corrupt Clinton Foundation “pay-to-play” activities to his tax agency’s exempt operations office for investigation, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

The request to investigate the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation on charges of “public corruption” was made in a by 64 House Republicans to the IRS, FBI and Federal Trade Commission (FTC). They charged the foundation is “lawless.”

The initiative is being led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican who serves as the vice chairwoman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which oversees FTC. The FTC regulates public charities alongside the IRS.

The lawmakers charged the Clinton Foundation is a “lawless ‘pay-to-play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years and should be investigated.”

Now, given what we know about the current set of left-wing sycophants running the Internal Revenue Service, I wouldn't run around assuming this will go anywhere. You're probably not going to see Bill and Hillary in cuffs for tax fraud any time soon. What you probably will see is a continuation of the steady "drip drip drip" that's already been haunting Hillary's presidential campaign.

A peek at the ways in which money changes hands within her totally-above-board philanthropic endeavor could do even more to cement the idea that "crooked Hillary" is every bit as "crooked" as Donald Trump says she is.

...and, as usual, it's all coming at the worst possible time.

Poor Hillary! Apparently the IRS is just another sexist cog in the vast right wing conspiracy.
