There is a scandal involving Russia and the 2016 election.
And there is evidence of collusion.
Now one skeleton from Bill and Hillary Clinton’s closet just confirmed everyone’s worst fears.
A new bombshell report from The Hill revealed that the FBI uncovered a bribery scheme in the American energy sector that took place before the Obama administration’s controversial decision to allow Russia to purchase 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.
The Hill reports:
“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.
The story only gets worse from there.
The Hill reports there is evidence tying this scheme to Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation:
“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.
The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.”
Hillary Clinton claims she did not have veto power over the deal.
But the State Department did have the power to recommend that Obama ultimately reject the sale of a massive quantity of uranium to the Russians.
While she sat on her hands and allowed this purchase to move forward, Russian businessmen were stuffing the Clinton Foundation bank account with millions of dirty money.
Critics are accusing the Clintons of taking a bribe.
The only evidence of collusion with Russia and ties to Moscow reside in Bill and Hillary Clinton’s past.
Despite the best efforts of the Deep State, the Mueller investigation, and the media, no evidence of deals with Russia or collusion with Russia exists in regards to the Trump campaign.
The idea that Trump or his associates colluded with the Russians to rig the 2016 election is fake news.
Hillary is the one with financial ties to Russia through the alleged pay-to-play schemes being run through the Clinton Foundation.
Another interesting footnote in this story is that at the time this bribery scheme was discovered, the FBI was being run by none other than Robert Mueller.
The Department of Justice did not bring charges until after four years from the time the plot was uncovered, and after the Obama administration approved the uranium sale.
Did Robert Mueller recommend charges not be brought?
And how can he credibly investigate Trump, given the odd decision making surrounding the investigation into the Russian bribery scheme and its connections to the Clinton Foundation?
