On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor,” host Bill O’Reilly used his “Talking Points Memo” segment to challenge dishonest politicians with regards to a number of current issues in the news.
However, when he addressed the controversy surrounding former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and their foundation, O’Reilly suggested it would be a FBI investigation.
“[N]ow, there is no way on earth that Bill and Hillary Clinton are going to admit to any wrongdoing,” O’Reilly said. But they have to know that the whole foundation thing is unethical to say the least. But as long as it’s not illegal, apparently they are fine with it. So the question becomes what about the legality of the foundation? Shouldn’t the Clinton Foundation be investigated? Of course it should. And I’m not on a witch hunt here. But there is big money involved in foreign countries, a secretary of state and a former president. The FBI can start that investigation tomorrow. It doesn’t need President Obama’s approval and it doesn’t need Attorney General [Loretta] Lynch’s approval. So my question tonight is for FBI director James Comey: Will you start an investigation? Today we presented that question formally to the FBI. We’ll let you know what the agency says.”
