In response to Hillary Clinton’s ongoing scandal regarding controversial donations made to her family’s nonprofit organization, dozens of GOP legislators have added their names to a letter to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.
Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn drafted the correspondence, which is intended to convince Koskinen to investigate the Clinton Foundation in light of allegations published in Peter Schweizer’s latest book, Clinton Cash.
The letter cited “recent media reports” which “revealed that the Foundation failed to report millions of dollars in grants from foreign governments that it accepted while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and that if facilitated private business transactions between foreign entities…”
Another aspect of the scandal addressed in the letter relates to allegations that a Canadian donor teamed up with the foundation to allow him “access to foreign individuals or entities with a stake in his private business interests.”
Based on these and other allegations related to the organization, Blackburn and the letter’s signatories are petitioning for “a prompt review of the Foundation’s tax-exempt status” in an effort to “determine whether it is acting within the scope of its charitable mission.”
Given the gravity of the accusations against them, the Clintons “have created an appearance of impropriety and go behind the Foundation’s pledge to act primarily in furtherance of charitable causes for which it was granted tax-exempt status,” the letter concludes.
Among the 51 others to sign Blackburn’s letter are several high-profile congressmen and committee leaders, including House Rules Committee Chair Pete Sessions, Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte, Budget Committee Chair Tom Price, and Homeland Security Chair Mike McCaul.
