Bill Clinton

Editor's note: The FBI has released 129 pages of redacted documents related to the William J. Clinton Foundation and a 2001 investigation into the pardon of Marc Rich. Clinton was criticized for pardoning Rich, who fled to Switzerland after being indicted for tax evasion, illegal trading with Iran and other charges. Rich's former wife had made large donations to the Democratic party and Clinton library, The New York Times reports. Funds for the library were raised through the William J. Clinton Foundation - not the more well-known nonprofit Clinton Foundation. The FBI investigated the pardon in 2001 and it was closed in 2005, according to the agency. NBC News reports the documents were released following a public records request related to the WJC Foundation, and notes that there is little information in these documents that wasn't reported on at the time. The FBI is currently being criticized for publicly announcing a review of emails that may be linked to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server use. - Stephanie
