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.

We all know that the very foundation of American democracy is at risk because Russia has been moving in to destroy it and the proof is in the pudding: Russia worked hard at throwing the last U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump, because they have dirt on him and they know if they use it against him, they can get sanctions against them lifted.

Every American should take a step back, because when we do, it is clear that Congressional Republicans are on the wrong side of history.
