The made-up Trump-Russia collusion scandal was a huge point of the 2016 election.
Hillary Clinton made the anti-Trump conspiracy theory a staple of her campaign.
But now there is evidence linking Bill Clinton to Russia, and he doesn’t want you to know about it.
Newly released emails show former President Bill Clinton attempted to meet with an official who was a part of a Russian state-run company seeking approval to purchase a uranium company with holdings in the United States.
This was in 2010 while then-President Obama was negotiating a controversial uranium deal with Russia.
While former President Clinton did not meet with the official, he did end up meeting with Vladimir Putin.
The deal gave the Russian company control of 20 percent of the United States’ uranium and ended up winning approval despite the FBI discovering Russian officials were bribing an American uranium trucking company.
As reported by The Hill:
“As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.”
Despite the evidence presented, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton stated that the story is nothing more than partisan politics aimed at President Trump.
Again reported by The Hill:
“At every turn this storyline has been debunked on the merits. Its roots are with a project shepherded by Steve Bannon, which should tell you all you need to know,” said Nick Merrill. “This latest iteration is simply more of the right doing Trump’s bidding for him to distract from his own Russia problems, which are real and a grave threat to our national security.”
Hillary Clinton blaming legitimate concerns on President Trump is nothing new.
During the 2016 Presidential election, she used that same excuse to ignore concerns about her use of a private email server to send and receive classified emails.
If the Clinton machine has their way, this entire story will be swept under the rug and ignored.
Do you think this deal reeks of corruption?
