ELDER PATRIOT – Almost everybody knows by now that in 2010 Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a speech he gave to the Russia-based finance company Renaissance Capital that was double his normal speaking fee. Then Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was so pleased with Clinton’s words that he personally expressed his appreciation to the former U.S. president. Now we know why.
At that time, Renaissance Capital was the reason Congress was debating the Magnitsky Act a bill written to designate Russia as human-rights abusers and that sough to impose sanctions on the already economically strapped nuclear power in an attempt to bring them into line.
Now new evidence has surfaced via WikiLeaks that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was actively engaged in trying to hide the $500K emolument her husband received for his speech opposing the Magnitsky Act.
Hillary’s efforts to block the legislation from passing tat only further fuels charges against her – that disgraced former F.B.I. Director James Comey refused to bring – that she used her position as Secretary of State to sell access and influence to foreign governments in exchange for cash.
Recall this New York Times headline: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal. The article details how “the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton” approved the sale of Uranium One that “gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”
Given that “uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security” it’s hard to see how this served the interests of the United States. It is, however, easy to see how this benefitted Bill and Hillary. Their foundation ultimately received upwards of $140 million due to the generosity of Uranium One’s investors.
From the NY Times:
Finally there’s this potentially damning little ditty: Natalia Velenitskaya – the honey pot at the center of the Donald Trump Jr. uproar – was working with Hillary to defeat the Magnitsky Act. In fact that was ultimately the reason she asked for the meeting with the younger Trump.
It should be clear to everyone by now that there’s very little interest among Washington’s ruling elites to root out corruption. The fact is they are actively engaged in blocking President Trump from draining their swamp by tying him up with unsubstantiated claims against him that is becoming a glaring embarrassment to our once highly respected intelligence agencies.
It’s time for the Department of Justice to do what Loretta Lynch wouldn’t do – empanel a grand jury and seek the indictment of William Jefferson and Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton.
