Former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton gave a lengthy interview broadcast on C-SPAN on Monday during which she claimed the renewed focus on the Obama-era Russian uranium deals approved as she was Secretary of State is basically fake news and debunked “baloney”.
Moreover, in Hilary Clinton’s view, the Russian uranium deal scandal is a clear sign of Republicans getting increasingly nervous on Mueller’s Russia probe into Kremlin’s efforts to interfere with last year’s presidential election. Hillary Clinton told C-SPAN:
“I think the real story is how nervous they are about these continuing investigations,”
Here’s how the renewed interest in the Russia-Uranium One extravaganza begun: Clinton Cash Confirmed: FBI Uncovers Hillary’s Corrupt Uranium Deal with Russia.
There is solid evidence gathered by the FBI, proving that Russian nuclear industry government officials were engaged in schemes of extortion and bribery prior to Barack Obama’s administration approving the sale of Uranium One to Russia, thus ceding control of 20% of America’s uranium supply to Kremlin. All these stories are based on declassified law enforcement memos, court documents and interviews with career officials. However, Hillary Clinton claims that any accusations of wrongdoing on her part are partisan in nature:
“I would say it’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.
But here is what they are doing, and I have to give them credit. [President] Trump and his allies, including Fox News, are really experts at distraction and diversion.
So the closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians, as we heard [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions finally admit to in his testimony the other day, the more they want to just throw mud on the wall.
I’m their favorite target. Me and President Obama, we are the ones they like to put in the crosshairs.”
Given that the reports are generated by the paperwork from Obama’s FBI overseen by Justice, which is staffed with a slew of senior bureaucrats appointed in her husband’s administration, this is hardly coming from the Republicans.
Accuse your enemies of what you do.– Karl Marx. Every democrat has read his books. Even the failing New York Times agrees:
NY Times confirms: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal
“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….”
“the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors….”
Her next story will be she can’t remember due to a head injury. Just wait and see.
