Mitt Romney Says on Hugh Hewitt Show Regarding Clinton Foundation Uranium Payments … “It Looks Like Bribery”
Mitt Romney says, “It Looks Like Bribery.”
Yesterday on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, Mitt Romney was asked what his reaction was of the New York Times article report documenting cash flowing from the Russians amid a uranium deal to the Clinton Foundation. Romney, the former 2012 GOP presidential nominee, said that he was stunned and “it looked like bribery”. Romney went on to say that it looks like bribery and a cover up on behalf of Hillary Clinton and had she not wiped out thousands of emails, we might know more.
“You know, I’ve got to tell you, I was stunned by it. I mean, it looks like bribery.”
“I mean, there is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of, what, 20% of America’s uranium production to Russia, and then it was covered up by lying about a meeting at her home with the principals, and by erasing emails. And you know, I presume we might know for sure whether there was or was not bribery if she hadn’t wiped out thousands of emails.”
“But this is a very, very serious series of facts, and it looks like bribery.”
It is too bad that Mitt Romney did not go after Barack Obama like he is now Hillary during the 2012 presidential election. Had he done so and kept his foot on Obama’s neck following the 1st Presidential debate instead of coating and playing a prevent defense, he probably would have won.
Sec. of State Hillary Clinton & the Real Russian Reset … Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal
CAN YOU SAY OBSCENE CONFLICT OF INTEREST …
UNBELIEVABLE, From the New York Times comes the following connect the dots story that looks way to fishy and convenient of an incestuous relationship between then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, The Clinton Foundation and the Russians. How in the hell can Hillary Clinton be trusted to be President of the United States? Forget email and server-gate and Benghazi-gate while she was Secretary of State and all the previous scandals that she was a part of, we need to only look at what she did as Secretary of State and the relationships that can be best be described as suspect. As Red State opines, Bill Clinton sold us to the ChiComs; Hillary sold us to the Russians. And this individual wants to be president. America, wake the hell up.
The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.
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.
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.
Please read the entire article at the NY Times as there is too much incredible stuff in it to do in any justice with block quotes. It is time for America and especially Democrats to say enough is enough. Obviously Democrats are not going to vote for a Republican for president, but if you actually pull the lever for Hillary, you would have sold your soul, as there has never been a more corrupt person running for president that had no business doing so. If these kind of stories of scandals, corruption, influence and conspiracy were about any one else, they would have been politically destroyed. Sorry, but so should Hillary.
Clinton Foundation To Refile Tax Returns … For 3 Years in a Row the Clinton Foundation Reported to the IRS It Received ZERO Funds From Foreign & U.S. Governments
Hmm, the IRS was too busy going after and attacking Conservative non-profits and the Tea Party as they missed The Clinton Foundation filings … Imagine that.
As reported by Reuters, The Clinton Foundation will have to refile at lest 5 years of tax returns to the IRS after a Reuters review found errors in how the Foundation reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors. As referenced at Breitbart, the errors, which have not been previously reported, appear on the form 990s that all non-profit organizations must file annually with the Internal Revenue Service to maintain their tax-exempt status. But what would you expect from Hillary Clinton, an individual who thinks she is above the law, conducted State Department business with her own personal email and stored on her own private server, and then scrubbed the server hard drives clean.
Remember, Ron Fournier said weeks back to keep your eye on the Clinton Foundation, that was the bigger controversy.
Scouts honor, I am not a liar
Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.
The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks. Republican critics say the foundation makes Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, vulnerable to undue influence. Her campaign team calls these claims “absurd conspiracy theories.”
The charities’ errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.
The errors, which have not been previously reported, appear on the form 990s that all non-profit organizations must file annually with the Internal Revenue Service to maintain their tax-exempt status. A charity must show copies of the forms to anyone who wants to see them to understand how the charity raises and spends money.
The unsettled numbers on the tax returns are not evidence of wrongdoing but tend to undermine the 990s role as a form of public accountability, experts in charity law and transparency advocates interview told Reuters.
“If those numbers keep changing – well, actually, we spent this on this, not that on that – it really defeats the purpose,” said Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, a government transparency advocacy group.
For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.
Hillary Clinton Claims She Wants to Listen to the People and is Accessible as She Avoids Them in Keene, NH
ARE HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTERS REALLY THAT GULLIBLE … DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK SHE WANTS TO CHAMPION THE LITTLE PEOPLE?
Her tour was billed as conversations with every day Granite-stater’s as it turned out to be quite the opposite. As her adoring fans waited in the rain in Keene, NH to hopefully see and maybe even have a chance to say something to the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee for 2016, all they got was a brief glimpse of blond hair. What is most interesting about this was that even her fans were a bit miffed at being blown off my Hillary. Her own fans who waited for Hillary were skeptical of her saying, “I mean, we’re standing out in the rain waiting for her and then all of a sudden, she’s just running from us.” America, namely those that are enamored with Hillary Clinton, she could care less about you, she is about Hillary. All the populist, common folk, champion of the little people is just BS.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who has vowed to be ?“accessible” to New Hampshire voters, left many of her rain-soaked supporters here high and dry when she sped in and out of a public meeting without so much as a hello.
“It should have been ?advertised that we’re not allowed to see her,” said Keene resident Michelle Isabelle.
“People are the ones that are voting for her, so if she’s running and not meeting people, then what’s the sense of coming here?” Isabelle said. “I really believe in her but I’m … actually perturbed right now.”
Clinton came here for her first stop in the Granite State since announcing her 2016 Oval Office campaign. The former U.S. secretary of state toured Whitney Brothers, a family-owned children’s furniture business, and huddled with employees for a much-publicized roundtable — but never pressed the flesh with several dozen people huddled outside.
Most of the ignored backers were also young — a key demographic for the former first lady.
“If I was running, I would want to meet the people that I’m going to be supporting and serving, get their input on what they would like to see personally. She’s running for president. She should be able to want to meet the people themselves,” said Kammara Gagne, 20, of Keene.
“I mean, we’re standing out in the rain waiting for her and then all of a sudden, she’s just running from us,” Gagne said. “It’s like, why are you running?”
This was not the first time that Hillary Clinton raced past people that were waiting to see her since she declared that she was running for president to champion the little people. As the American Spectator opines, Hillary Clinton is no Bubba … “Say what you will about Bill Clinton. He knew how to work a room & wouldn’t have kept his supporters waiting outside in the rain. He’d have taken the time to say hello and make their wait worth the while.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Not Categorically Denying Clinton Foundation Donors Received Special Treatment From Sec. of State Hillary Clinton
HMM … OBAMA WHITE HOUSE NOT CATEGORICALLY DENYING CLINTON FOUNDATION DONOR AND FORMER SEC. OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON QUID PRO DOUGH SPECIAL TREATMENT …
Why would it be difficult for Barack Obama’s White House press secretary Josh Earnest to say categorically that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not provide special treatment for those who were donors of the Clinton Foundation? One would think that would be a straight forward response of, absolutely not. However, not with the most transparent presidency in history. The Obama White House does not seem to have an answer to the accusations made from the recent book by Peter Schweizer, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” otherwise known as Quid Pro Dough.
The new book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” by Peter Schweizer, lays out the case that contributions to the foundation influenced State Department policy from 2009 to 2013, during Clinton’s tenure.
ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked Earnest Monday, “Can you say categorically that no donors to the Clinton Foundation – nobody paying any honoraria to former President Clinton – received any favorable treatment from this administration or from the State Department?”
Earnest talked at length about the memorandum of understanding Clinton signed when she joined the Obama administration, saying that it went above and beyond ethical guidelines, given her unique circumstances.
“I know there have been a lot of accusations made about this but not a lot of evidence,” Earnest said. “So, the president continues to be extraordinarily proud of the work Secretary Clinton did as secretary of state. For the details of some of those accusations, I’d refer you to Secretary Clinton’s campaign.”
Karl pressed, “Can you assure us absolutely no favorable treatment given to donors of the Clinton Foundation?”
Earnest repeated, “There are lots of accusations. There is no one who is marshaling the evidence for this. I don’t want to be in a position.”
Hillary Clinton’s Scooby Van Clocked at 92 MPH in New Hampshire in a Driving Rainstorm on Interstate 89
LIKE SAMMY HAGAR, HILLARY CLINTON CAN’T DRIVE 55 …
Yup, she is one of us … first Hillary Clinton’s Scooby van is caught parking in a handicap spot in Iowa, now it is reported that the Mystery Machine was clocked at doing 92 mph in New Hampshire on Interstate 89 in a driving rainstorm as she was being rushed to meet
the little people one Granite state political big-wig to the next. REALLY? Having driven that highway hundreds of times and being pulled over by New Hampshire’s finest for going a much less speed, I think I might have to retroactively contest that ticket. I wonder if the Scooby van had its lights on in the inclement weather, that also would be a ticketable offense. Maybe for their next act the Scooby van will perform a hit and run.
Hmm, what happened to Hillary meeting and being the champion on the commoners?
- Motorcade raced from Keene to Claremont to Concord, obliterating speed limits as Hillary kept a tight schedule of off-the-books events
- Claremont party at the home of an aide to Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen included messaging about income inequality, despite Clinton’s own wealth
- Event was reportedly scheduled to test the waters for a Shaheen endorsement for Clinton
- Evening dinner party was at the sprawling home of the former New Hampshire state Senate president, Sylvia Larsen
Democratic Presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s security detail led a handful of journalists on two lengthy high-speed chases to homes of influential Democrats on Monday.
Her lone official appearance on her first day in New Hampshire was a carefully stage-managed small-business roundtable in Keene.
But a lunchtime visit to a main-street bakery and two more appointments later in the day were off-the-books and under the public’s radar.
If police radar had been engaged, however, it would have clocked Hillary’s signature black conversion van – ‘Scooby’, for the uninitiated – hitting 92 mph in a driving rainstorm on Interstate 89, where the top speed limit is 65.
After Clinton emerged from Whitney Brothers, a children’s furniture manufacturer, her black Chevy conversion van raced an hour north to the town of Claremont, hitting 73 in a 55 mph zone.
Bombshell Book … “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer
HILLARY CLINTON’S QUID PRO CASH …
The New York Times is reporting on a bombshell book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer, that even Democrats are going to find shocking and possibly question her run for the presidency. Let’s see Hillary Clinton try and scrub this one from the public’s awareness or dodge questions regarding cash for favors while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. The book asserts that foreign entities made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return. Hmm, isn’t this called a bribe? It was not too long ago that Ron Fournier stated that the Clinton email controversy was a scandal for “Anybody With A Brain” … but stressed that the Clinton Foundation taking foreign money when she was Secretary of State was an even bigger controversy.
The book does not hit shelves until May 5, but already the Republican Rand Paul has called its findings “big news” that will “shock people” and make voters “question” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.
The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.
“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes.
If was recently that Rand Paul said there was ‘big news coming’ in weeks that will take Hillary down. I guess this was it, as opposed to all the other lies and misrepresentations from Hillary. I guess we know why Hillary scrubbed her private server that contained her emails while she was Secretary of State.
The money line comes out at the 9:00 minute mark of the video below
Sen. Rand Paul keeps referring to “big news coming” about Hillary Clinton’s foreign donations, and now it appears the big secret will be revealed in May.
Last week, in a speech to the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the Kentucky Republican and presidential candidate said, “There’s going to be stuff coming out about the Clinton Foundation and their donations from different companies that get special approval from the secretary of state. Coming out in the next couple of weeks,” Bloomberg reported.
According to The New York Times, that “stuff” is a book titled “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer.
Schweizer investigated donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities.
Megan Murphy on MSNBC … Hillary Clinton “Cruised Right On By” Everyday Iowans Waiting To Meet Her” Including Elderly People in Wheel Chairs
WHAT DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE AGAINST PEOPLE IN WHEEL CHAIRS?
First the Hillary Clinton’s Scoobie van is parked in a handicapped parking spot illegally and now she cruises right past people, some in wheelchairs that were there to meet her in Iowa. Hillary’s meet and greet the little people turns out to be total BS as she wound up driving right by the so-called every day Americans that she told us all that she wanted to meet on this van tour. Imagine that, Hillary lied again. Just curious, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to be the champion of the common folk if she cant find time to meet with them?
Washington Free Beacon – Reporter: Hillary’s Van Drove Past Elderly People in Wheelchairs Waiting to Talk to Her.
Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa.
In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate.
“I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly people in wheelchairs, there were people — and they just cruised right on by to the back.”
The news that Clinton symbolically drove past ordinary voters while driving their own “everyday Americans” to the event will certainly reflect poorly on the campaign. The incident draws parallels to the man Clinton hopes to succeed in the Oval Office when he drove past disabled veterans in Phoenix.
ABOVE THE LAW: Hillary Clinton’s Mystery Machine Scooby Van Illegally Parked in Handicap Parking Spot … But What Difference Does It Make?
ARE REAL AMERICANS ALLOWED TO PARK IN HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOTS WITHOUT HANDICAPPED STICKERS … IF HILLARY WAS A REPUBLICAN THE MSM WOULD BE ASKING … WHY DOES HILLARY CLINTON THINK SO LITTLE OF THE HANDICAPPED?
Add another black mark to the Hillary Clinton roll out of her 2016 presidential run. This time it was in Council Bluffs, Iowa where Hillary’s Scooby Doo van parked in a handicapped parking spot. Remember, the rules really don’t apply to Democrat politicians, especially Hillary Clinton. So this is how she shows she is one of us? Do any of you think that there would not be a ticket on your vehicle if you had done the same? That’s because you are not entitled and above the law. How about a comment from Team Hillary where they they are asked whether they think its OK to park in a handicap spot and why they think so little of the handicapped that they would illegally park in a spot?
Hillary Clinton’s now-famous Scooby Doo van made an appearance in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday for a closed-door meeting with state Democratic Party officials – and it idled in a handicapped parking space from beginning to end.
Footage broadcast by KETV-7 in the nearby city of Omaha, Nebraska, showed the presidential nominee emerging from a cafe, greeting onlookers and walking past the blue handicapped-parking sign to climb into the vehicle.
