After nearly a year of President Trump being accused and investigated by every intelligence agency in America over imaginary Russian collusion, things have now come full circle, back to where they should have been.
Finding nothing to indicate Trump colluded with Russia, the trail of evidence has now boomeranged back toward Democrats, Obama, Hillary, Mueller and the Podesta brothers.
First, it’s now been shown that the FBI and friend of Hillary, James Comey, knew about a Russian bribery plot tied to nuclear energy interests in the U.S. well before the Obama administration OK’d a mining company sale to a Russian firm, giving it partial control over American uranium reserves.
Now, Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, finding nothing against President Trump has somehow turned the investigation toward the dealings of Tony Podesta, a powerful Democratic lobbyist and the brother of former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman, and friend, John Podesta.
While this is going on, Fusion GPS, the firm behind the debunked anti-Trump dossier, has gone to court to block Congress from getting its bank records after its representatives pleaded the Fifth in a Capitol Hill appearance last week.
One has to wonder, what are Democrats trying to hide? As Hillary liked to say during the campaign, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, pulling her best rendition of the Nazi mantra “accuse the other side of that which you do”, brushed off the revival of the uranium deal controversy as “baloney” meant to distract from GOP controversies.
You didn’t expect her to just admit she’s a traitor and will sell out to the highest bidder, did you?
But Republicans beg to differ on Hillary’s account of ‘baloney’.
“Now it’s the Democrats who have some explaining to do,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement overnight. “I hope they will cooperate with the investigation, be forthcoming with the American people and I expect the media to cover these new developments with the same breathless intensity that they have given to this investigation since day one.”
NBC News first reported early Monday that Tony Podesta and The Podesta Group are now subjects in the special counsel’s Russia investigation, following inquiries regarding former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s finances.
New details have emerged since last week on the 2010 approval of the sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom nuclear company. The U.S. was involved because the sale gave the Russians control of part of the uranium supply in the U.S.
The Hill reported, however, that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S., related to a subsidiary of the same Russia firm.
Several Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill are now asking questions about how the deal was approved the next year by an inter-agency committee. Among them, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo. – who has raised concerns about the Uranium One transaction since 2010 – wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Oct. 19 that he’s “extremely disheartened and disturbed” by reports indicating the government approved the deal despite the DOJ having “evidence of corruption by Russian nuclear energy officials in the United States.”
He asked for “all documents” disclosed by the department to the committee – of which the DOJ was a member – concerning the investigation prior to the approval.
The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said these issues are just part of the “distraction and diversion” from the investigation into Russian meddling and possible coordination with Trump associates in last year’s election.
“The closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians … the more they want to just throw mud on the wall,” Clinton said.
But White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told “Fox & Friends” that the only “collusion” is on the other side.
“If you want to see collusion with anyone and the Russians, look no further than the Democrats. Look no further than Tony Podesta and the Clinton crew,” she said.
