Charles Ortel: Pardons Won't Save Clintons From Clinton Foundation Crimes?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St welcomed back returning guest, respected former value investor on Wall St and one of the top forensic accountants on Wall St, Charles Ortel

Charles was warning people about accounting problems in GE, GM and the large Wall St banks well in advance of the 2008 financial crisis and his warnings proved prescient. Charles has been on a long and time consuming crusade for the truth about the Clinton Foundation and exposing the "largest ever charity fraud" in world history in excess of $100 billion.

During this 50+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Charles about the news today how Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said that the Trump administration won't pursue additional investigations about the Clinton private email server/Clinton Foundation. Links to stories:


Charles thinks Trump is playing poker, doing a rouse or intentionally doing a head fake. Notice how the Trump camp didn't say the FBI, DOJ and IRS have stopped current investigations of the Clinton Foundation?

Next, Jason asks if/when Obama and/or Trump pardon Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton if the pardon will cover all the crimes from the Clinton Foundation? Charles says absolutely not. He says the Clinton Foundation is most likely being investigated by state tax agencies in the US, foreign tax agencies (for setting up unregistered Clinton Foundation subsidiaries) and the Clinton Foundation has so many potential counts of wire fraud, mail fraud and solicitation (more than Corrine Brown received over 300 years in prison for!) that a blanket pardon can't cover everything.

Jason also asks Charles about any additional information that came out about the Clinton Foundation when Julian Assange and Wikileaks released the 36 batches of Podesta Emails?

It appears that the accounting firm for the Clinton Foundation has acted like Arthur Anderson did in covering up the massive accounting fraud at Enron.
