House GOP 'Working With Whistleblowers' In Clinton Foundation Investigation
Republicans will hear testimony on December 5 by the prosecutor designated by Sessions
The investigation into the wrongdoing of the Clinton Foundation has taken another step forward as House Republicans will hear testimony on December 5 by the prosecutor designated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) has confirmed.
Meadows, who is the chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations, said they are ready to "circle back" to former Utah Attorney General John Huber's investigation with the DOJ to determine whether the Clinton foundation committed crimes, according to the Hill.
"Mr. Huber with the Department of Justice and the FBI has been having an investigation – at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th," Meadows said on Hill.TV.
Meadows reveals that the invitations will include whether any tax-exempt proceeds where utilized for 'personal gain' and whether IRS laws were adhered to by the Foundation.
Huber was appointed by Sessions in 2017 to work in tandem with the Justice Department to investigate conservative allegations of misconduct at the FBI, including reviewing several issues surrounding the Clintons themselves.
The probe will also include Hillary Clinton's links to a Russian nuclear agency and concerns about the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation has already been under an investigation by the IRS since July 2016, according to a report from the Dallas Observer.
Meadows says it is now time for Huber to reveal to Congress what he has found, and "expects him to be one of the witnesses at the hearing," per The Hill.
The committee is now working to secure testimonies from whistleblowers able to present further information on the depths of the criminal activity of the Clinton Foundation.
"We’re just now starting to work with a couple of whistleblowers that would indicate that there is a great probability, of significant improper activity that’s happening in and around the Clinton Foundation," he added.
The Clinton Foundation still denies any wrongdoing despite also being under FBI investigation from the Arkansas field office.
The Arkansas FBI investigation was launched in January, and directed its probe into the pay-for-play schemes and tax code violations, the Hill reports.
Law officials and witnesses providing information wish to remain anonymous.
Officials who would only speak under the condition of anonymity, states the investigation is considering whether the Clintons contracted or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their 'charitable efforts' - or whether donors engaged in commitments of donations expecting to secure a government outcome - The Hill.
Little Rock FBI agents who interviewed the witness said that were informed that that questions focused on "government decisions and discussions of donations to Clinton entities during the time Hillary Clinton led President Obama's State Department," and that agents were "extremely professional and unquestionably thorough."
