Posted on 04/26/2017 5:22:39 AM PDT by Enlightened1
Hillary Clinton’s Department of State aides threatened a South Asian prime minister’s son with an IRS audit in an attempt to stop a Bangladesh government investigation of a close friend and donor of Clinton’s, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group learned.
A Bangladesh government commission was investigating multiple charges of financial mismanagement at Grameen Bank, beginning in May 2012. Muhammad Yunus, a major Clinton Foundation donor, served as managing director of the bank.
Sajeeb Wazed Joy, son of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and permanent U.S. resident, recalled the account of the threatened IRS audit to TheDCNF. The allegations mark the first known instance in the U.S. that Clinton’s Department of State used IRS power to intimidate a close relative of a friendly nation’s head of state on behalf of a Clinton Foundation donor.
Joy told TheDCNF it was “astounding and mind boggling” that senior State Department officials between 2010 and 2012 repeatedly pressured him to influence his mother to drop the commission investigation.
The commission report was released in early 2013.
“They threatened me with the possibility of an audit by the Internal Revenue Service,” he said. “I have been here legally for 17 years and never had a problem. But they said, ‘well, you know, you might get audited.’”
“They would say over and over again, ‘Yunus has powerful friends’ and we all knew they were talking of Secretary Clinton. Everybody knew it was Mrs. Clinton,” Joy told TheDCNF.

Don’t put yourself in a position where your opponent can use leverage. Don’t expect a “comfortable” opponent to “look askance” of your situation.
All 4th and 5th Amendment considerations aside...Muhammad Yunus, you brought this $h!t on yourself.
Nothing to see here, move on.
Meanwhile, in Jacksonville, a black congresswoman, Corrine Brown, in on trial for a misappropriation from a tax free foundation. The money is in the realm of 30K. During jury seating, one potential juror when asked if they could be impartial asked: why is she on trial when others in DC, like the Clintons, go free of investigation? She was removed from the pool. Frankly, the thought her attorney should raise that question during her trial in arguments has passed my mind too. I hope it gets raised.
An IRS audit is only a threat if you have something to hide.
Back in 1978, I received a “random” IRS audit even though I only earned $3.60 an hour in full time wages. You do the math. This is less than $7500 a year. I filed using the 1040 EZ form. Took me less than 10 minutes to return all the information to the idiot IRS hacks that decided I needed an audit.
Now a days, I an audit sends shivers to everyone that receives one. As I said, it’s only a threat of you are hiding something.
Actually, you are wrong. The IRS is a terrorist organization - much like the KKK was - and you can be completely innocent and have your life turned upside down. That Clinton used this against someone either innocent or guilty should send shock waves.
The IRS Tax Code is enormous---think of a battleship---nobody really knows whats in it.
Remember.....if you get audited....the IRS cannot ask you about your previous tax returns....only the return of the audit year.
I’ve been audited. It is NOT pleasant and they are not a nice government outfit. They are out to intimidate and steal. Lois Lerner, anyone? Henry Waxman, anyone?
If you are targeted, all they have to do is "allege" fraud and they can go back as far as they want.
They can and do turn your life upside down.
Using the power of the federal government for personal reasons is illegal, and deserving of jail. Obviously, certain well-placed individuals have nothing to worry about, as they are above the law.
They certainly can ask for other years. I was audited back in 1991 for 1989. I had a small side business and a full time job paying about $30K/year. At the end of the audit I was assessed an additional $500 on the basis of a mis-allocated business expense.
Feeling lucky they then went for my 1990 taxes and told me I'd be audited as a follow on to the 1989. Meanwhile, I moved from CT to VA, and as often happens, audits that transfer get lost in the shuffle when you move and they are typically assigned a lower priority in the stack. Sometimes statute of limitations kicks in (3 years for taxes) and the audit ends by default. I wasn't that lucky. They found me in VA.
Happy ending to the story is that the audit for 1990 resulted in a $3000 refund to me.
I have not heard from them since. For all I know I have a flag next to my SSN that says, if we audit this guy it will cost us BIGLY!
They cant just arbitrarily allege “fraud”.
A “mistake” might be made when filing taxes......very easy to do.
A “mistake” cannot be construed as fraud.
Not sure when it did....but I think the law has changed since your 1990’s experience.
I think many taxpayers get intimidated in these situations and don’t defend themselves properly.
They can if the Democrats control the IRS...
Thank God this woman did not become president. She would have made Nixon look like a saint.
Used to be from Jacksonville and met her when she was campaigning on the street one day. Typical dimbulb Dem..................
Back in the days they sent checks IRS twice sent me two. I sent the other back return receipt and called to make sure they got it!
Once you pay the IRS off, they know they have a sucker, unfortunately. And they let the state in on it too. We had a situation where a deduction was nixed, waited four years to tell us and two years after that, the state came after us.
Sen. Jesse Helms helped us straighten our facts with IRS. That was back in the day.
hmmmm. makes one wonder if the xlintonista/obammy regime ordered the IRS to audit trump?
