You’re probably sick of hearing about Russia (see Jeff Sessions Spanks Democrat Senator on Russia Collusion [Video] and Video: Tucker Carlson Shreds Rob Reiner Over Russia Hacking Hypocrisy), but the FBI has uncovered news about a Russian bribery plot. Oh, with Donald Trump? Nope.
This plot involves Russia, Secretary Clinton, and the Obama Administration. And not in a good way:
Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.
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 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
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, sources told The Hill.
Donald Trump’s is Twitter account is going to be LIT this week!
You should really read the entire report from The Hill.
Here’s what this means: Russians were essentially engaging in espionage under Obama’s nose. Meanwhile, the Russians were padding the bank accounts of the Clintons in order to “buy them off” and secure themselves a “favorable decision” for Moscow. So when Hillary says “Trump is in bed with Russians” she’s likely projecting.
Let’s pull back even more, get the bigger picture: if there is any Russian collusion with the American government, it was done in the previous administration under both Obama and Hillary Clinton. I’ll say “allegedly” for the attorneys. This is either an act of straight up incompetence, or collusion on the part of Obama and/or Hillary. Russia gained access to nuclear information. Under Obama and Hillary Clinton. And donated money to the Clintons. I’m restating this on purpose. It’s a big damn deal.
Which begs the question: where’s the mass media coverage? THIS is the Russian-American connection. But since it didn’t happen under Trump, it’s being swept under a rug? Even though uranium is at stake?
