FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot
before Obama administration approved
controversial nuclear deal with Moscow

The Hill, by John Solomon and Alison Spann

Original Article

Posted By:steveW, 10/17/2017 9:19:09 AM

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

The reasons the FBI hid this from their own people are obvious enough. Hillary would be exposed with her hand in the same till.

Real Russian collusion, bribery and corruption by Clinton and Obama is ignored while this phony nothing about Trump is endlessly "investigated".

At least the top, political parts of the FBI are totally corrupted, and somehow Sessions at DoJ cannot manage to get this obvious criminal conspiracy to sell our uranium to Putin into the serious fast lane where it needs to be.

Once again, the Clintons are obviously, glaringly corrupt and nothing is done whatsoever by the Swamp Creatures.

This is a candidate for must-read status! As others have said, the accusations against Mr. Trump and company are projections of what Team Clinton-Obama-Holder-DNC-you-name-it did. Had Clinton become president, all this would have been swept under the rug. That is why, in part, the Trump presidency is so disturbing to the Left.

This article explains why we have this feeling that everything is rigged in this country to benefit the elite few! The insight into the musical chairs at the State Dept. and FBI in positions that can give the green light to corruption, just explains why we needed Trump so badly.
When it is just money it is bad enough, but when the democrats will sit back and allow the Clintons to compromise the security of this country, it is clear that there are two countries within our non-borders.

Do you notice the headline DOESN´T say, FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Mr G2P approved a nuclear deal with Moscow? Do you ever wonder why it is when you or I do so much as accidently park in an unmarked yet reserved spot there is absolutely ZERO delay in getting caught and having to pay for our crime, yet whenever certain Marxists knowingly commit felonies out in the open, they get away with it AND get rewarded for their crimes BY people like Jeff Sessions and James Comey? Gosh, I wonder why that is since we´re all told that we´re all equal under the law.

I think the field is being plowed to expose the trash and muck underneath. Given the reality of the Deep State, the Uniparty and the enemedia, along with half the population still under the influence of the Cult, it would have been impossible for Trump and Sessions to indict Hillary! or any other major player in the Obamanation immediately after inauguration.

President Trump is an astute judge of character and possesses a superb understanding of human nature. He knows his/our enemies better than they know themselves, and anyone who has any insight into the Progressive Socialist Globalist criminal mind knows exactly how they will react to any stimulus. I submit the Sessions’ recusal and the appointments of Rosenstein and Mueller were feints to lull the Deep State into false confidence so that they would “do that voodoo they do so well.” Instead of President Trump being paralyzed by their investigation he begins the systematic dismantling of the Obama Legacy while simultaneously winning every Culture War battle they instigate.

In less than a year President Trump has exposed the Leftist rot of Fake News, the self-serving Congress, the fascist Antifa, and the racist NFL. In this same year Hillary! has become a caricature of her caricature self with Bill shrinking into the shadows, while the Democratic Party octogenarian establishment fights back their insurgent minorities. The Hollywood morality brigade has been breached. Trump is the master of timing. I believe when the time is right, when the public opinion tipping point has been reached, Attorney General Sessions and President Trump will announce the return of justice for all to America.

MAGA – Plowing comes before planting.

Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, said it "is a little bit too late" for Democratic women to come out against the former president. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and a number of others said Clinton should have resigned under the specter of sexual misconduct allegations in the 1990s. "We were not believed," Jones said. "[We] did not get any kind of help whatsoever from any of those liberal women." Broaddrick said it was "absolutely disgusting" to see the backlash come against Clinton after they exited electoral politics.

It was the cackle that cost her an election. The time was the 80s and the First Lady of Arkansas was chatting with Roy Reed. Reed was a New York Times bigwig, a civil rights hero and is currently a speaker for the Clinton School of Public Service. Back then, Reed was working on a profile of the Clintons for Esquire. The profile was never published. The tapes of the interviews were stowed at the University of Arkansas until they were dug up in ’14. And there’s Hillary Clinton laughing on tape about how she saved a 12-year-old girl’s rapist. Kathy Shelton had been

Things could get a whole lot more interesting if Kimberley Strassel is correct in her research and analysis of how the Clinton Campaign paid for the creation of the “Steele Dossier”, pushed it to the FBI, and then used their influence to generate media coverage of it. There’s a lot more questions to be asked; a lot more. The basic outline as it appears is: Clinton paid for the sketchy dossier to be put together; then pushed it to the FBI (Sally Yates); who then used it to open a counter-intelligence investigation; which was then used to begin wiretaps etc.

Remember ISIS? When Obama left office, it was still a growing network of eager sadistic killers, with secret sponsorship by Turkey, by some Gulf Arab regimes, the Wahhabi radicals, and by the Iranians. Today a lot of those boastful YouTube killers are just smoking splotches in the sand. A single MOAB bomb was dropped on a mountain tunnel complex in Afghanistan, apparently a clean target with no "weddings" going on. The day afterwards the media said that 94 ISIS killers died, but that assumes that somebody had already cleaned up that collapsed tunnel structure; not a chance. So a hundred or

Bravo, Charles Grassley! The Iowa senator has turned into something of an aging Mr. Smith taking on corruption in the Obama administration (and its Justice Department) and calling for a special investigator for the metastasizing Uranium One Scandal. But is it enough? As has been reported, this 2010 deal was made despite a hitherto unknown FBI investigation that exposed bribery, kickbacks, etc. on the part of the Russian company involved. The pact resulted in 20% of U.S. uranium in Putin´s hands (some of whic, in lethal yellow cake form, has already disappeared into the ether) and millions of dollars in the

The major developing stories this week have been so scantily and poorly covered in the mainstream press that you may want an easy primer. To fully understand it you have to look at alternative media because just as Harvey Weinstein counted on complicit enablers -- his colleagues, victims and the press -- Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller and a cast of characters, including a press determined to cover for them have hidden what occurred. It’s taken some time, to be sure, but the evidence of their wrongdoing is becoming harder and harder to hide. Stalling and misdirection are their last redoubt.

Perhaps as startling as the revelation that the FBI was investigating the Hillary Clinton/Russia/Uranium One collusion and that key figures like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe knew about it and said nothing, is the refusal by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove the non-disclosure agreement gag order on the FBI informant who arguably could put Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few others in federal prison. It was said the Jeff Sessions recused himself from all things Russian because of election campaign conflicts but is it really because he thought it

Blame Sean Hannity. Or give him all the credit. The intrepid talk show host has been claiming for months that there is nothing to the Trump-Russia allegations, that the real tale of Russian collusion is linked to Hillary Clinton. The fact that very few people have taken this seriously has only caused the firebrand conservative to dig in deeper and repeat his talking points both more often and more fervently. His insistence the Russian story would “boomerang” against the Democrats has been largely based on his communications (both on- and off-air) with Julian Assange and investigative reporters John Solomon and

Hillary is demanding to know the truth about Trump and Russia. The truth is that every accusation about Russian ties that Hillary and her associates have hurled at President Trump is really true of the Clintons. In ’14, Hillary Clinton made headlines by comparing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to Hitler. But if the Russian strongman really was ‘Hitler’, what did that make stooges like Hillary, Bill and Barack Obama? Five years earlier, Hillary had been posing with a ‘Reset Button” with one of Putin’s henchmen. But Hillary was bringing a lot more to the meeting than a mislabeled button pilfered from a swimming

Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy.

In a textbook example of why Facebook users should pause for a moment of reflection before they post, a Democratic candidate for Ohio governor sought Friday to get ahead of any potential sex scandals by announcing the details of his relationships with 50 women. The sexcapade diary was in response to the Al Franken scandal, and included a hayloft romp with a "gorgeous blonde" and a fling with a "red head from Cleveland." “Now that the dogs of war are calling for the head of Senator Al Franken I believe it is time to speak up on behalf of all heterosexual males,”

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown asked for leniency from a federal judge in Florida on Friday. She faces a lengthy prison term after being convicted of stealing thousands of dollars that were meant to go to charity. In May, a jury convicted Brown of 18 felony counts, including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, and working with others to run a fake non-profit group. Her conviction represents a major fall from political grace. Brown was one of the first black elected officials to be elected to federal office in Florida in 1992.

Gov. Chris Christie refrained from saying "I told you so" when he introduced Ivanka Trump at an appearance in Bayville earlier this week. But he had every right to, especially when it comes to the recent developments concerning his old rival Jeff Sessions. During the presidential campaign last year, the governor of New Jersey and the then-Senator from Alabama were among the first prominent Republicans to come out for Donald Trump. At one point in that campaign, Trump said Christie would make "a great attorney general" in the event he won the election. Trump went on to win, but Christie lost
