Lawmaker demands FTC probe into Clintons' 'sham charity'

Lawmaker demands FTC probe into Clintons' 'sham charity': A House Republican lawmaker is planning to ask the Federal Trade Commission to take a cue from law enforcement by looking into the Clinton Foundation's nonprofit status, and is calling the foundation a sham charity.
The letter, which is being circulated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. and which was obtained by the Washington Examiner, asks the FTC to investigate the charitable status of the group, due mainly to the criminal probe announced by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in January. That agency is seeking to determine whether public corruption laws were violated when Hillary Clinton worked for the foundation at the same time she served as secretary of state.
