Trump Asks House To Investigate Clintons’ Russian Ties

In a series of tweets on Monday, President Trump asked why the House Intelligence Committee, who is investigating Russian interference in the presidential election, isn’t investigating former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s connections to Russia.

“Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech,” Trump’s tweeted, followed by, “…money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!”

Both the uranium deal and the Moscow speech by Mr. Clinton were reported in an explosive New York Times article. According to the NY Times, four donations worth $2.35 million were made to the Clinton foundation from the Russian controlled company Uranium One, which controls 20 percent of uranium production capacity in the United States.

Because of the strategic importance of uranium resources, multiple agencies needed to sign off and approve the deal. As Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton provided the Department’s approval.

However, the donations from Uranium One were never disclosed by Mrs. Clinton despite an agreement with then President Obama to publicly disclose all donors.

For his part, Mr. Clinton was paid $500,000 by a Russian bank for a speech delivered in Moscow after the uranium agreement was approved, according to The New Yorker.

Breitbart Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer further detailed the revelations in the book Clinton Cash.

    A true leader would have properly recognized threats and gone through with his promise to investigate and prosecute Hillary. Why did Trump make it a point to publicly back off his threats immediately after being elected? His hollow promise and obvious campaign bluster was nothing more than a strategy to get votes. It was never real. It was just political leverage. What else wasn’t real or was stated with tepid enthusiasm because he knew that’s what people wanted to hear? Would someone who was really attempting to Drain the Swamp support and endorse people like Paul Ryan and John McCain?

    In many ways, Trump is just another puppet in the American Dream bullshit story. He’s political theater for a Reality Show generation. I know to some it might not seem like he’s being controlled, but just because you can’t see the strings doesn’t mean there’s no influence or manipulation.

    Donald Trump is the head of the executive branch, which has a Justice Department, not to mention a Federal Bureau of Investigation. They’re better investigators that House staff people. if Trump thinks that the Clintons need to be investigated (a conclusion with which I am complete agreement), the investigation should be an executive branch operation.

    The Clintons started up their influence peddling racket before Bill even left office. It has often been pointed out that the Clinton Foundation (hereinafter, and rather fittingly too, just CF) was accepting money from people, and governments who had business before the US Government while HIllary was Secretary of State. But she was a Senator for eight years before that, and the CF was taking in money during that entire time too, as was Bill through speaking fees, etc. Perhaps the Senate should open up an investigation as to how that corrupted the deliberations of that august body.

      Two reasons. I’m trying to use free use photos and the Kazakhs were apart of the uranium deal (not mentioned in the article admittedly) also first reason. 🙂
