Lock her up.
The mainstream media pulled out all stops on Tuesday to make this story go away.
It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks.
Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval.
The New York Times confirmed and followed up on Schweizer’s reporting — all of it denounced by Hillary as a partisan hit job.
But now The Hill reports that the FBI in 2009 had collected substantial evidence — eyewitnesses backed by documents — of money-laundering, blackmail and bribery by Russian nuclear officials, all aimed at growing “Vladimir Putin’s atomic-energy business inside the United States” in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
The bureau even flagged the routing of millions from Russian nuclear officials to cutouts and on to Clinton, Inc.
Hillary Clinton, again, sat on a key government body that had to approve the deal — though she now claims she had no role in a deal with profound national-security implications, and during the campaign called the payments a coincidence.
The Obama administration — anxious to “reset” US-Russian relations — kept it all under wraps, refusing to tell even top congressional intelligence figures.
And when the Obamaites in 2014 filed low-level criminal charges against a single individual over what the FBI found, they did so with little public fanfare.
“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national-security concerns,” one veteran of the case told The Hill.
Yet the administration let Moscow move ahead — publicly insisting that there were no national-security worries — and no evidence of Russian interference, despite many lawmakers’ concern at the time.
There’s more: Until September 2013, the FBI director was Robert Mueller — who’s now the special counsel probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It’s hard to see how he can be trusted in that job unless he explains what he knew about this Obama-era coverup.
The Hill offers the full, detailed story, explaining why Hillary reeks of corruption.
One more thing. You might have seen the news that Hillary Clinton broke her toe and cancelled her interviews.
Did she really?
There were hints that something big was breaking on Tuesday. Could she be faking a broken toe in order to give herself an excuse for hiding out from the questions that would be forthcoming about her collusion with the (((Russian mafia?)))
“Uranium One will be one of the biggest scandals this country has ever seen,” he said.
“Hillary Clinton and her husband sold out America to the Russians as [money] flowed to the Clinton Foundation,” he added.
He said that, for the “liberal ideologues” who are “screaming Russia” and looking for collusion, “we’ve got it for them.”
Hannity said Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller should “stop wasting time” with Trump and turn their attention to the Uranium One deal.
