6 Things to Know About the New Rash of Clinton Revelations, Including
Ties to Russia
Apr. 23, 2015
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 White House campaign took several major hits in
the press Thursday morning, as reports surfaced about damaging new links
between the Clinton Foundation and Clinton’s tenure as secretary of
Many of these revelations are from Peter Schweizer’s new book “Clinton
Cash,” but other details were fleshed out further by other reporters.

Here’s a round up of the top six things to take away from Thursday
morning’s rush of news:
1) The Clintons Failed to Report Millions of Dollars in Contributions
>From a Uranium Company Linked to Russia
The New York Times reported early Thursday morning that while Clinton
was secretary of state, a Russian energy company called Rosatom was
working to take over a Canadian company, Uranium One, that had stakes to
uranium around the world, including some in America.
“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,” the Times wrote.
“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,” the Times added.
The Times noted the Obama administration was making promises that it
would be no problem selling the uranium stakes to Russia. Additionally,
Bill Clinton was then paid $500,000 for a speech in Moscow, which was
paid by “a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was
promoting Uranium One stock.”
2) The State Department Helped Approve the Sale of Uranium One When It
was Led by Clinton
According to the Wall Street Journal, the State Department plays a role
on the government committee that examines whether the sale of a company
to a foreign company has an impact on U.S. national security. That
committee approved the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom in 2010, when
Clinton was secretary of State.
3) Clinton’s Camp Is Denying Any Wrongdoing
While the uranium deal looks like a possible deal in which Rosatom gave
money to the Clintons in exchange for allowing the sale of Uranium One,
Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Clinton, said no one has produced “a shred
of evidence” that this is the case.
“To suggest the State Department, under then-Secretary Clinton, exerted
undue influence in the U.S. government’s review of the sale of Uranium
One is utterly baseless,” he said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
4) The Clinton Foundation Is Redoing Its Tax Returns
Reuters reported Thursday that based on its own review of the Clinton
Foundation, several tax errors are apparent, that that news is forcing
the foundation to refile “at least five annual tax returns.”
For example, the foundation had said that from 2010 to 2012, it received
no funds at all from any government. But those claims were “errors.”
“[S]everal foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of
dollars toward the foundation’s work on climate change and economic
development through this three-year period,” Reuters wrote.
A spokesman for the foundation told Reuters that they were “prioritizing
an external review” of its tax forms, and said it’s possible returns
from the last 15 years might have to be corrected.
The Clinton Health Access Initiative is also refiling tax returns from
2012 and 2012 after finding “typographical errors.”
5) Companies Lobbying State Department While They Donate to the Clinton
These facts are in addition to ongoing reports that dozens of companies
were lobbying the State Department for various reasons while Clinton was
in office, and were giving money to the Clinton Foundation at the same
The Wall Street Journal reported that “at least 60 companies” were doing
this, and gave the foundation “more than $26 million.”
6) Companies Paying Speaking Fees to the Clintons While They Donate to
the Clinton Foundation
According to the Washington Post, Bill Clinton was paid $26 million in
speaking fees by companies that were also donating to the Clinton
“The amount, about one-quarter of Clinton’s overall speaking income
between 2001 and 2013, demonstrates how closely intertwined Bill and
Hillary Clinton’s charitable work has become with their growing personal
wealth,” it said.
And one more point #7 nominating a RINO will grease the skids for this
witch to become President.
But at least she is a citizen unlike the Resident Marxist.
