No, we already know she made a deal with Russia. Bill met with Putin. Case Closed.


She sold out all our domestic uranium to Russia.


Nobody has anything to refute this?

She did. Bill finalized the deal with Putin.

www.breitbart.com...




–Bill and Hillary Clinton had helped a Canadian financier named Frank Giustra and a small Canadian company obtain a lucrative uranium mining concession from the dictator in Kazakhstan;

–The same Canadian company, renamed Uranium One, bought uranium concessions in the United States;

–The Russian government came calling and sought to buy that Canadian company for a price that would mean big profits for the Canadian investors;

–For the Russians to buy that Canadian company, it would require the approval of the Obama administration, including Hillary’s State Department, because uranium is a strategically important commodity;

–Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval;

–Some of the donations, including those from the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Teler, were kept secret, even though the Clintons promised to disclose all donations;

–Hillary’s State Department approved the deal; –The Russian government now owns 20 percent of U.S. uranium assets.

Is this a defense mechanism? When the topic is Trump and his questionable ties to Russia... the discussion turns to Clinton.

It's.... almost like... they ignore it... when it's... about... Trump? Could it be?

Nope only things to back it up:




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.

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.

The Hillary supporters literally don't care about her corruption and lies.

Yet they cling desperately trying to tie Trump to Russia.

Wasn't Manafort's business there legal?
People can speculate all they want about Trump working for Russia'a interest(lol) all they want, but Manafort was not hired by the Russian gov't, correct? It was a private company, I thought. (as private as a big company in Russia could be, anyway)

Anyway, the way I see it, Russia would make a better ally than enemy.

Second time now I see you posting this garbage. How about you present the whole picture of the gala instead of just cherry picking one person, because you give an impression that only Flynn was honored to meet Putin. Jill Stein is sitting there on the table too with them.

RT to mark its 10 year anniversary with international conference on media and politics


The conference, titled “Information, messages, politics: the shape-shifting powers of today’s world,” will explore a wide range of pressing international issues, including Middle East security, the state of today’s geopolitical balance of power, the battle of media narratives, Russia’s role on the world stage, tradeoffs between information privacy and security under a global terrorist threat, the evolution of the international news landscape over the past decade, and the role of media in addressing the challenges facing the world today.

Among the speakers and panelists will be Ken Livingstone, mayor of London during the 2005 terrorist attacks and recently appointed co-chair for the UK’s opposition defense review; Cyril Svoboda, former- deputy prime minister, minister of foreign affairs, and interior minister of the Czech Republic, who led the negotiations on Czech accession to the EU; Jill Stein, a US politician and the Green Party’s 2012 presidential candidate; Willy Wimmer, German statesman and ex-VP of the OSCE; Patricia Villegas, president of pan-Latin American news network teleSUR; Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, former head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency, the country’s main foreign military espionage organization; noted CIA whistleblower Raymond McGovern, and RT’s own editor in chief, Margarita Simonyan.


All those people must be in Putin's pocket!

Oh no! Jill Stein was there too, sitting on the same table with Putin and Flynn. Now people will think she works for Putin!

Oh wait, that already happened...

Red Scare 2016: As Green Party Power Grows, Jill Stein Accused Of Ties To Putin

It's actually good Trump has people on his side who don't see Russia as the enemy. Good relations between USA and Russia is far much better than cold war bull#.

But they lose the power over the people if we are not in fear of being nuked by the Big Bad Russians.

I have NEVER understood how THIS is against Trump. It is LONG past time for us to leave the cold war behind us and start working to fix our broken relationships. If Trump is able to do this I see it as a good thing!

His work supposedly was legal but a ledger showing Manafort received 12M in cash payments raises questions about other activities.

It was legal. What seems to not be is that the money he was raising was routed to a lobbyist group in the US. It is owned by HIllarys Campaign Chairman and his brother. The Podesta brothers. The Clintons bag man as they say. Even the HuffPo seems clueless.

Just yesterday they were both in China....hmmm....

Let's see what Flynn says about his departure from the DIA:


Flynn maintains President Obama fired him from the Defense Intelligence Agency two years ago because he took a stand against “radical Islamism,” and claimed Al-Qaeda was expanding its ranks around the globe.



Flynn says all kinds of stupid things and that is why the Defense Intelligence Agency fired him.

Lets see what people who aren't Flynn say about his departure. AT THE TIME HE LEFT vs. now as Trumps Aid/Russian connection.

2014


Critics said that his management style could be chaotic and that the scope of his plans met resistance from both superiors and subordinates. At the same time, his tenure was marked by significant turbulence, including the fallout from the classified intelligence files leaked by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, as well as other emerging crises.

“His vision in DIA was seen as disruptive,” said a former Pentagon official who worked closely with Flynn.

Flynn clashed with other high-ranking officials, including Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Michael G. Vickers.

In 2010, Flynn rankled many of his counterparts in the intelligence community when he published an article that was sharply critical of the information that spy agencies were assembling in Afghanistan.

www.washingtonpost.com... 5-188ebe1fa93b_story.html

Nobody in the intelligence community liked him and they like him less now that he is besties with Vladimir Putin.

And before that dinner in December??...He gave a private paid talk to a Russian Government "Think Tank"...

He will be lucky to avoid espionage charges before the bright lights of being Trumps goto man fade.

I mean if one were so inclined to be suspicious, there is a decent collective there to be suspicious right?

His double agent / spy wife aside...

-Trump admitted to having a relationship with Putin, then later denied it.
-Trump praises Putin; Putin praises Trump...
-Trump called on Russia to help *find* Hillary's missing emails and eluded to some kind of reward if released to the press.
-Trump has expressed interest in pulling out of NATO, which was formed as a defense against Russia.
-One of Trump’s top advisers, Carter Page, visited Moscow in July to deliver speeches criticizing decades of U.S. foreign policy.
-Corruption investigators in Ukraine say an illegal, off-the-books payment network earmarked 12.7 million in cash payments in 2007-2012 for Paul Manafort.

I'm all for peace with Russia... but is there more to it here? Putin is ex-KGB... Not a good guy... Is Trump and his campaign a little too cozy with Putin?

Not to sideline, but i would be more worried about Huma in HIllary's ear. I mean, I would think she will have Valarie Jarrett's position if CLinton was elected. That is a spooky thought....

Love your post because it represents the very kind of desperation many people see as the very reason why there is a need for true change. You can slime the man all you want and continue the paint-by-numbers political dribble you offer, but more and more people see it for what it truly is...intentional misrepresentation. Even your own article, as well as many others, laud this man's distinguished career prior to Trump's candidacy.

But keep grasping at straws and going off the rails....it only helps bring about the demise of the criminal and duplicitous system of people you appear to support.

Meanwhile, for others more interested in Flynn, watch him here:



Frankly, after spending the time today researching this guy, my view of Trump's selection of Flynn as an advisor greatly improves my view of Trump himself. Thanks for that.

Thanks for your permission, but I will let Flynn's former colleagues asses his actions and character..



Like Trump, Flynn has advocated forging closer ties with Russia. In interviews with The Washington Post, Flynn acknowledged being paid to give a speech and attend a lavish anniversary party for the Kremlin-controlled RT television network in Moscow last year, where he was seated next to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin.

“People went crazy,” said retired Brig. Gen. Peter B. Zwack, a former U.S. military attache in Moscow. “They thought it was so out of bounds, so unusual.”




Dismayed by Flynn’s behavior since he left the military, former colleagues have contacted him to urge him to show more restraint. Among them are retired Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, who relied heavily on Flynn in Iraq and Afghanistan, and retired Adm. Michael Mullen, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. McChrystal declined to comment for this article.




Some of Flynn’s other moves angered superiors. Former U.S. officials said he was scolded after traveling to Pakistan in 2009 or early 2010 and revealing to Pakistani officials sensitive U.S. intelligence on the militant Haqqani network




Flynn also came under investigation by the Pentagon because of an allegation that he had inappropriately shared highly classified intelligence with Australian and British forces.




Former subordinates at the DIA said Flynn was so prone to dubious pronouncements that senior aides coined a term — “Flynn facts” — for assertions that seemed questionable or inaccurate.




The decision to remove Flynn was “about turbulence and a destructive climate,” said a former senior U.S. intelligence official. “I don’t think anybody in the administration was even aware of his views” on radical Islam.

He's leaky with intelligence, disgruntled at the US Intelligence community and cozying up to Putin..

Perfect advisor for Trump..
