I am trying to dampen my enthusiasm for this embryonic scandal, lest we just turn it into the same sort of nonsense that the Trump Russian collusion is.
However already the evidence seems to be a lot more concrete than anything about Trump and Russia.
Over half the people/organisations that made donations to the Clinton foundation ended up getting one on one meeting s with Clinton whilst she was secretary of state. Kinda a side issue and proves nothing more than Clinton was neck deep in cash for access.
Lobbyists for the Russians who wanted to purchase the Uranium rights paid 150 million dollars to the Clinton foundation. The deal then got approved by Clintons state department.
Questions were asked by concerned congressman at the time.. but were stonewalled.
The FBI had an investigation into bribery and corruption over the whole deal before it was completed, including an informer who was ready to testify.
The FBI dragged it feet and ultimately did nothing except make the informer sign a non disclosure agreement. Effectively not only stopping the investigation but limiting anyone else from investigating by gagging a key witness.
Muller and Comey were in charge during this time.
When this witness came forward again, he got threatened with jail time by the FBI, despite the FBI never letting him have a copy fo the NDA he signed, and still refusing to. Just telling him that if he talks to anyone including lawmakers and law enforcement he would be jailed. Nobody has EVER heard of jail time being a threat over and NDA. It is incredibly unusual, the FBI did not claim there was any classified material, just did not let him speak.
The chairman of the Russian company that bought the uranium rights.. also on the board of the Clinton foundation.
I will be interested to see where this goes, but compared to the complete nothing they have over Trump and Russia, this seems a lot more significant.
Can you imagine the furore if Trump had received 150 million form Russia?
MSM are a sad joke.
