On this day, the Wall Street Journal reports that FBI field offices in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC. and Little Rock, Arkansas, have been investigating the Clinton Foundation for possible financial and political corruption. All the offices have been involved since at least February 2016, though there was a reorganization in mid-July 2016, with the New York office taking the lead.
Later on the same day, the Daily Caller reports that at some point the FBI field office in Miami, Florida, has also joined the investigation. Further details are not given except that “The Clinton Foundation has numerous programs operating in Haiti, the Caribbean, Latin America, and South America.” The Miami office would be the closest to all those locations.

The Daily Caller’s claim is given additional credence because the author of the article, Richard Pollock, also wrote an article in August 2016 claiming the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation was in existence at a time when nearly all other media outlets failed to report that. That article mentioned details, such as the investigation was being led by the FBI’s New York field office in conjunction with Preet Bharara, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York, that have since been reported elsewhere.
