    Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company

    This is the second story like this I've come across this morning... At this rate, I don't think Hillary will ever make it to election day.


    Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company
    By JO BECKER and MIKE McINTIRE APRIL 23, 2015
    The New York Times

    Excerpt


    At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

    Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.


    As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

    The most significant part of that story is that it is printed in the New York Times. Hillary's defenders have abandoned her.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    The other one was from Newsweek... That's sure going to make it difficult for Hillary and those on the left to write these scandals off as right-wing attacks.

    More from the story:

    Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown.

    it didn't stop them before, claiming that the servergate story was right-wing-rubbish coming from.... the WaPo and NYTimes.....

    The willingness to be blinded is strong in those who feel that they have no choice but Hillary. I just hope that OMalley doesn't win without coming out too scarred.

    And if it did what difference does it make.

    I just wanted to add this article to yours:

    "....What's more troubling about the situation is that Clinton failed to disclose, as she had promised to do when she joined the State Department, a number of big contributions to Bill Clinton's foundation. New York Times reporters Jo Becker and Mike McIntire had to go through Canadian tax records to track down these donations from a number of Uranium One investors.

    One can only guess at the reasons the contributions, totaling millions of dollars, were kept quiet, but perhaps the idea was to avoid precisely the kind of story the New York Times produced, hinting at a Clinton family interest in helping a businessman friend. Frank Giustra, a founder of the company that became Uranium One and a big donor to the foundation, is indeed friendly with Bill Clinton. They even traveled to Kazakhstan together when Giustra's company acquired its interest in uranium mines there. And Rosatom did pay a 30 percent premium to the market price of Uranium One shares....."

    I would advise reading the whole article.

    The major problem to me is the failure to be open and transparent. We do not need a cover-up President and that is how the Missus has acted since she was a lawyer back home on the range.
