Democrats, led by the Clinton campaign, have doubled -- even tripled-down -- on peddling the Trump-Putin-Russia conspiracy theory in order to deflect attention away from Hillary Clinton's myriad transgressions -- not least of which is the fact that it is she who has more dubious ties to Russia than anyone else.
For some reason, even too many Republicans have been reticent about the UraniumOne deal, which ultimately saw then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approve the sale of 20 percent (and slated to grow to 50 percent) of our nation's uranium production to Russia.
During a recent Special Report, Bret Baier interviewed New York Times reporter Jo Becker, who actually first broke the story about how the Clintons, through mega-donor Frank Giustra, played a role in selling-out our nation's uranium production to the Russia-owned firm, UraniumOne.
The video report featured above explains how Frank Giustra, a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, was interested in purchasing uranium mines in Kazakhstan. In order to help his friend, Bill met with the country's president and publicly praised his record on human rights (a joke considering this is Kazakhstan). In return for Bill's PR-plug, Kazakhstan approved the sale of uranium mines to Giustra, who in turn turned an "worthless shell company" into a lucrative one. Giustra in return donated $31 million to the Clinton foundation and pledged $100 million more.
In 2007, Giustra's company merged with a company dubbed UraiumOne, which went on a "buying spree" of uranium stores in the U.S. Well, UraiumOne was then bought out by the Russian government.
The key here is that this deal required the approval of the Secretary of State. There are many different ties that go deep and link directly to the Clintons, who did not disclose the hefty donations from Giustra nor their affilations with UraniumOne, to the State Department (even though they were required by law to do so).
Peter Schweizer, author of the book, Clinton Cash, also makes an appearance to discuss the findings of his investigation. It was also refreshing to see a reporter with the New York Times display journalistic integrity for once, and Jo Becker certainly does that here in the interview, as she did when she first reported the story.
The video segment above is well worth watching and sharing, as I believe this is one of the most underreported stories in this entire election season. The crux of this story should also be the first-line response to any Democrat peddling the "Trump-is-a-Putin-puppet" routine.
