During the 2016 campaign, many voters rightfully wondered about Hillary Clinton’s trustworthiness. From her botched handling of Benghazi, to her shady home-brewed email server, it seemed like Clinton’s previous transgressions were sure to haunt her come November. Despite all of this, the media did the best they could to brush those concerns aside, and push her over the top.
Of course, the media’s treatment of Donald Trump has been the exact opposite. While there was ample evidence to give voters pause about Clinton, liberal pundits spent months trying to create evidence that proved their theory that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election. Almost a year later, still no proof has emerged to implicate the Trump campaign.
Meanwhile, a different investigation into Russia has been playing out behind the scenes. While the evidence does show that a 2016 presidential candidate had improper dealings with Russia, it isn’t the candidate liberals were hoping. In fact, what the FBI has uncovered proves once again that the voters were right to doubt Clinton.
New evidence has emerged to confirm Peter Schweizer’s account in his bestselling book Clinton Cash about the corrupt tactics behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s approval of Russia’s purchase of 20 percent of U.S. uranium.
Josh Solomon and Alison Spann report in The Hill:
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.
At the time of the deal, Hillary Clinton was at the helm of the State Department. Coincidentally, her foundation received received millions of dollars from donors involved in the deal:
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.
The news comes as the FBI also confirmed that former Director James Comey decided to clear Clinton of charges relating to her email server months before the investigation had concluded, casting doubt on the motivation for his bizarre press conference that eventually cleared the candidate of criminal charges.
While the media continues to obsess over delegitimizing Trump’s presidency, it has become clear that his opponent was never fit for the job.
Thankfully, the voters saw right through the charade.
