During his epic press conference, yesterday President Donald Trump bashed the media for not properly covering a 2015 report about then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Russia.
The report suggested that Secretary Clinton allowed 20% of the United States’ Uranium production to be acquired by a Russian company at the same time millions of dollars were flowing to both the Clinton foundation and directly into the pockets of Bill and Hillary.
“We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country, you know what uranium is, right? It’s a thing called nuclear weapons and other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things.”
The New York Times initially broke the story but as per usual any story showing Hillary in a negative light quickly got buried.
So now that it’s back in the news, let’s take a look at what really happened.
The times article was titled “Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.” The paper documents the events surrounding the U.S. State Department under Secretary Clinton signing off on a deal that allowed the state-owned Russian atomic energy corporation, Rosatom, to acquire a Canadian-based uranium mining company called “Uranium One.”
The Times wrote:
“Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”
Let’s let Sean Hannity recap this scandal: “Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved a deal that handed over 20% of all uranium production capacity in the United States to the Russian state, while at the same time Clinton’s personal interests received close to $3 million from Moscow and the chairman of Uranium One.”
This deal also gave Russia control over 1/5 the world’s production of this critical resource. That’s important too.
Trump’s right – does anyone really think Hillary would be tougher on Russia than Trump? With this scandalous record?
If anyone is on Putin’s payroll is it Bill and Hillary. They have shown they will do anything for cash.
