Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s brother, who once boasted of his use of the Clinton Foundation to further a multimillion-dollar scheme in Haiti, appears likely to skirt an ethics investigation into preferential treatment given by administration officials to a company he founded.
The Daily Caller reported that the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Government Ethics have declined to investigate the Tony Rodham case even though the preferential treatment had already been established.
Last year, the DHS inspector general condemned Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for activities that “created an appearance of favoritism and special access.”
Mayorkas oversaw a program called EB-5, which offered a fast track to a green card for foreign investors who put $500,000 into a job-creating American business. The program’s popularity exploded under his stewardship.
He drew the wrath of the inspector general for fast-tracking visa applications for a company called GreenTech Automotive, run by Rodham and former Virginia Gov. Terry McAullife.
However, despite the findings of the inspector general, nothing happened.
