Schiff: Justice Dept investigating Clinton Foundation because they're being 'badgered by the White House' to do it

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, claimed that the Justice Department isn't investigating the Clinton Foundation because of new evidence, but because "they're being badgered by the White House to do it."

"If they are investigating Hillary Clinton, it doesn't take a genius, let alone a stable genius, to see why," Schiff told host Jake Tapper on CNN’s "State of the Union," referencing Donald Trump.

"It's not because there is some new evidence that has come to light," Adam Schiff added. "It's because they're being badgered by the White House to do it. You simply cannot explain it, I think, any other way."

"And I think that these cracks that we're seeing in the independence of the Justice Department ought to concern every American," the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said.

"That ought to be far more important than any party concerns. But, right now, it certainly doesn't look that way,” Schiff added.

The Department of Justice 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, according to the hill.
