Clintons And Their Foundation Received Millions From Russians While State Department Green-Lit Uranium Project
Charitable donations and speaking fees in exchange for project approval by the State Department.
That’s what the New York Times is reporting about unreported donations to the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton collecting speaking fees in Russia, and a Russian company obtaining “one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.” That deal was signed off upon by Hillary Clinton’s State Department:
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.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
While Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign denies any pay-to-play accusations, others are deeply suspicious:
A person with knowledge of the Clinton Foundation’s fund-raising operation, who requested anonymity to speak candidly about it, said that for many people, the hope is that money will in fact buy influence: “Why do you think they are doing it — because they love them?”
