To Russia with love.
That was, apparently, the sentiment of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton back in 2010, when the Obama administration approved a deal giving Moscow control of a vast swath of American uranium. This is more than ironic considering that Democrats and conspiracy buffs have long been accusing President Trump and his administration of playing footsy with Ivan under the sheets. It likely became criminal when, as is now known, the FBI had already gathered substantial evidence that officials in the Russian nuclear industry were engaged in bribery, extortion, money laundering, and kickback schemes designed to grow Russia’s atomic energy business inside the United States. Evidence to which the Obama administration would probably have been privy.
Moreover, according to U.S. government sources and documents, federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings, and intercept emails as early as 2009. The information this person collected showed that Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in direct violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
What’s more, a report published earlier today in The Hill stated: “They also obtained an eyewitness account- backed by documents- indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow.” (Emphasis mine). That is a nuclear bombshell, the kind of revelation that would necessarily provoke a “nuclear reaction”- figuratively speaking- in a sane and unbiased world. Millions of dollars’ worth of Russian bribe money funneled into the Clinton Family Foundation? I guess the Clintons are the very definition of a “nuclear family.” I’m not sure how this aligns with the foundation’s stated goals of improving health and wellness and increasing opportunity for women and girls…unless perhaps they are working in the Russian nuclear industry.
The decision on the part of the Obama-Clinton Syndicate to turn over a significant portion of America’s uranium to Russia- despite ample evidence of
Russian nefariousness- borders on treason.
This is a scandal of far greater magnitude- and import- than anything the mainstream media can dream of pinning on the Trump administration.
Trust me, though, they will ignore this story like they have countless others that would shed a bad light on Democrats. Hypocrisy? Heavens no! They’re just still too busy investigating the remote possibility that the Trump administration colluded with the Russians to steal the election away from Hillary Clinton…and her nuclear family.
