A whistleblower case against former first couple Bill and Hillary Clinton will now proceed after special counsel John Durham’s report revealed some new information regarding a prior federal investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

According to Just the News, U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson on Monday turned down an IRS motion to dismiss a case first opened in 2017 after two agency whistleblowers told Congress about suspected wrongdoing at the foundation.

He called “for new arguments in light of three recent precedent-setting court rulings, once again frustrating IRS efforts to make the case go away,” the outlet reported.

The three recent rulings in other tax cases “may affect the parties’ positions as to the pending motions,” the judge wrote. “We will order further filings so that the parties may address those recent opinions.”

The judge granted whistleblowers John Moynihan, a former federal agent, and Larry Doyle, a corporate tax compliance expert, an extension until June 30 to provide updates to their arguments. The IRS, on the other hand, has been given until July 28 to respond. As a result, it is highly likely that the case will continue for several more months, the outlet reported.

In his final ‘Russiagate’ report, Durham revealed in his comprehensive 306-page final report that the FBI was conducting four separate investigations into the business and philanthropic endeavors of Bill and Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

These investigations were being carried out by the bureau’s field offices in Washington, New York, and Little Rock, Arkansas.

Three of the probes began during the 2016 election cycle and were honed in on allegations that the foundation was in the middle of “criminal activity” that included “fraud and corruption allegations.”

One of the more serious allegations was that a corporate entity “likely engaged a federal public official in a flow of benefits scheme, namely, large monetary contributions were made to a non-profit, under both direct and indirect control of the federal public official, in exchange for favorable government action and/or influence,” Durham wrote in his report.

“Beginning in late 2014, before Clinton formally declared her presidential candidacy, the FBI learned from a well-placed [source] that a foreign government was planning to send an individual to contribute to Clinton’s anticipated presidential campaign, as a way to gain influence with her should she win the presidency,” he also said.

As the 2016 presidential election approached its conclusion, all four investigations were terminated, according to Durham’s report. He further stated that senior officials from the FBI and the Justice Department played a role in deliberately impeding or halting these probes.

His conclusion was drawn based on evidence collected from FBI agents who cooperated with the probe.

“Both senior FBI and department officials placed restrictions on how those matters were to be handled such that essentially no investigative activities occurred for months,” he noted.

Just the News added: “Judge Gustafson’s new request gives Moynihan and Doyle a fresh opening to incorporate Durham’s bombshell allegations in their court filings due next month.”
