So, remember when Guy Benson (second link below) wrote about how people were saying that the Clinton Foundation is a “slush fund?”
Do you remember when the Clinton Foundation had to re-file its taxes due to glaring mistakes, like claiming they had received zero donations from foreign and U.S. governments since 2010 when they indeed received tens of millions of dollars?
Well, a Wall Street analyst that helped General Electric with their financial pickle in 2008 alleges that the Foundation’s books are fraught with so many errors that it could constitute fraud.
A Pennsylvania appeals court on Monday cleared the way for the first and only criminal case against Bill Cosby (pictured) to proceed, rejecting the comedian's attempt to have the charges thrown out due to a deal he contends was reached with prosecutors a decade ago.
The state Superior Court had put the case on hold while it considered whether to take up Cosby's unusual pretrial appeal.

A Louisiana man accused of stuffing $31 worth of candy bars into his pockets faces a possible sentence of 20 years to life in prison, prompting a judge to question whether the sentence was "over the top."
Orleans Parish prosecutors chose to charge Jacobia Grimes, 34, under a statute that boosts the alleged candy theft to a felony.

The law applies to people who have been convicted of "theft of goods" at least twice. Grimes has five prior theft convictions, making him a "quad" offender under the state's habitual-offender law.
The case appears to be an extreme example of a widespread practice in Louisiana, which criminal justice reform advocates say has one of the toughest habitual offender laws in the country.
Alex Demetro (pictured) of Union City, California allegedly crashed into a tree during a test drive in Ontario. The crash killed 43-year-old Warren Smale of Montclair, a CarMax employee.
Witnesses told KTLA the sports car was going at least 70 mph.
Demetro was charged March 7 with one count each of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, driving while under the influence of a drug causing injury, and driving when privilege suspended or revoked with priors.
Austin “Chumlee” Russell (mug shot shown at right) from the popular History Channel TV series “Pawn Stars” was arrested Wednesday on felony weapon and drug charges during a sexual assault raid at his Las Vegas home.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department showed up at Austin Lee Russells home Wednesday afternoon with a search warrant in connection with a sexual assault case.
Chumlee’s southwest Las Vegas home where the raid took place is shown above. Three cars from his extensive vehicle collection are parked in the driveway.
Austin “Chumlee” Russell earns $25,000 per episode of Pawn Stares and has a net worth of $5,000,000.
Russell was arrested when officers found methamphetamine, marijuana and at least one gun at his home. He was taken into custody and booked for drug and weapon possession.
He was not booked on a sex-crime allegation, but the sexual assault investigation is ongoing, Officer Larry Hadfield told the Associated Press.
The FBI probe of Hillary Clinton took a major step forward this week with news that the guy who ran her illicit home-brew email has been granted immunity.
Clinton aide Bryan Pagliano had invoked his Fifth Amendment rights in refusing to testify or cooperate with investigators.
A tech with the 2008 Clinton campaign, he got hired for related duties when she took over at State — then won the nearly $140,000-a-year side job of setting up and maintaining her private email system.
The FBI almost never grants immunity unless that testimony is crucial in a case that is nearing conclusion.
