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.
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.”
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.
REALLY, THE ONLY REASON WHY PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR HILLARY CLINTON IS BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN …
Just curious, would it be okay to say that you are voting for an individual because they were a man? And that being their only qualification? Face it America, Hillary Clinton after all her years in the public eye, after all her years in government as a US Senator and Secretary of State has accomplished nothing of accomplishment. In fact, the things she has done, like the Russian reset, Benghazi-gate and her private email server scandal have probably been more of a detriment than help.
Is America really going to vote an unqualified individual who cannot seem to tell the truth President of the United States just because she is a woman? Just how ignorant and foolish has this country become? When you think about the social experiment of voting in the first woman as president, just because she is a woman ask yourself … how did that social experiment work of voting for Barack Obama, the first black one? Enough said.
It seems many students at the University of Washington can’t think of any reason why they should vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — other than her gender.
Campus Reform headed to Seattle, Wash., and asked several college students if they were “ready for Hillary” and why they would vote for her.
“She’s a woman, and that’s literally all,” one female student told Campus Reform.
“Because it’s time we have a female president,” another woman said.

Hillary Clinton Was Asked About Use of Private Email 2 Years Ago in 12/13/12 Letter from Congressional Investigators
THERE IS NO WAY THIS WOMAN SHOULD EVER BE CONSIDERED TO BE PRESIDENT WITH A TRACK RECORD LIKE THIS …
As reported by The New York Times, Hillary Rodham Clinton was asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state. Hillary Clinton never responded to the letter and purposely tried to hide the fact that she was in fact using a private email account. The question was asked to Mrs. Clinton in a December 13, 2012, letter from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Conveniently she never responded. Maybe she shredded that too. When Mr. Issa received a response from the State Department on March 27, all he got was a description of the department’s email policies. UNREAL.
What difference Does it Make that I Mislead congress and the American People …
Hillary Rodham Clinton was directly asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state, according to letters obtained by The New York Times.
But Mrs. Clinton did not reply to the letter. And when the State Department answered in March 2013, nearly two months after she left office, it ignored the question and provided no response.
The query was posed to Mrs. Clinton in a Dec. 13, 2012, letter from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Mr. Issa was leading an investigation into how the Obama administration handled its officials’ use of personal email.
“Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to conduct official business?” Mr. Issa wrote to Mrs. Clinton. “If so, please identify the account used.”
How can anyone, whether they be Hillary Clinton or not, be even considered as a viable candidate to run for president when they have a track record of purposely and willfully lying to Congress and trying to evade and stonewall an investigation? As we all know now, Hillary Clinton exclusively used a (many) private email accounts while she was secretary of state, also stored them on her own private email server and has since reportedly scrubbed the hard drive. Sorry, this should 100% disqualify one from running for president.
Hillary Clinton, in Her Own Words from Benghazi-gate to Dems Defending Obamacare to Flip-Flop on Gay Marriage to Poor Clinton’s to Foreign Policy Empathizing with One’s Enemies to Email Scandal
Hillary Clinton, in Her Own Words …
America, all you have to do is listen to what Hillary has done in the past to know what she will be like as a president. Hillary Clinton is synonymous with scandal, there is no getting around it, even if the Hillary anti-free speech police try and prevent people from speaking the truth. Hillary launched the worst kept secret of 2015 this weekend and officially announced her run for president in 2016.
We certainly know that she won’t be claiming she will have the most transparent administration ever. Then again, she claims to be for the common folk and that is not true either.
The VIDEO shows clips from just some of the recent Hillary scandals as well as her opinions on foreign policy:
- Democrats Defending Obamacare
- Flip-Flop on Gay Marriage
- Hillary crying Poor
- Empathizing with One’s Enemies – Really, we are supposed to empathize and respect terrorist groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and the rest?
- Email/Server Scandal – Hmm, even Richard Nixon didn’t destroy the tapes … remember what she said about GWB admin shredding docs?
Folks claims they want something new, if that is the case, how is Hillary Clinton even a consideration?
Robert De Niro Says Hillary Clinton Should Be the Next President Because She is a Woman and Has Paid Her Dues
Who knew the qualification to be president were to be a woman and pay your dues … If it were a lying sack of garbage with no idea what transparency was, Hillary would be #1.
Robert De Niro thinks Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States because she is a woman and she has paid her dues. HUH? De Niro says that Hillary has “earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point”. DOUBLE HUH? Please elaborate Mr. De Niro, exactly what has she done to earn the right to be president, other than being a woman? Maybe Hillary earned the right to be president because of Benghazigate and the death of 4 Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens while she was the Secretary of State? Maybe it was that Russian reset that went so well while she was Secretary of State. How about the Clinton Foundation taking foreign money while she was Secretary of the United States? Does that qualify her? Maybe her lack of transparency and her use of a private email accounts to conduct government business that were stored on her own private server in her home is the qualification that should make her president? That same private server that she claims to have wiped clean. Should some one who conducts them self life Richard Nixon during Watergate really be the next President of the United States?
But as all Hilary Clinton sycophants say, what difference does it make what she does, she has paid her dues. Hey Bob, please stick to acting.
Watch Hillary Clinton Lie About Benghazi-Gate During Capitol Hill Press Conference as Trey Gowdy Owns Her
5:50 minute mark of Video: I Believe in transparency, I believe in taking responsibility. Can one get more than 4 Pinocchio’s for lying?
Our talk eventually veered to his prophetic 2006 Hardball appearance, and whether or not he’ll be endorsing Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.
“Hopefully it will be her, yes,” said De Niro. “I think that she’s paid her dues. There are going to be no surprises, and she has earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point. It’s that simple. And she’s a woman, which is very important because her take on things may be what we need right now.”
“She’s smart, has run things before, and knows how government works and how to get things done,” added Rosenthal. “She’s watched it from the sidelines, and the frontlines.”
But no one can name any accomplishment that qualifies her to be president, except the fact that she would be the first female president. Wow, we all know how the first black president worked out, don’t we?
Carly Fiorina at CPAC: ‘Mrs. Clinton, please name an accomplishment’.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who is actively pondering a run for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination, took aim Thursday at Democrats’ likely nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton, saying she didn’t amass any victories while racking up ethics violations during her time as secretary of state.
“Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment. And in the meantime, please explain why we should accept that the millions and millions of dollars that have flowed into the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments doesn’t represent a conflict of interest,” Mrs. Fiorina said at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
WHAT A JOKE, NO CONTEMPT CHARGES FOR LOIS LERNER … MORE FROM THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENTIAL ADMINISTRATION EVER.
This should come as a shock to no one … President Barack Obama said he was going to have the most transparent and trustworthy administration ever. Of course this is much like a 300 pound man wearing a bowling shirt with the nickname “Slim” on it. And now for the latest in the IRS scandal that saw the IRS purposely and intentionally go after Conservatives and Conservative non-profit groups like the Tea Party ahead of the 2012 elections. Eric Holder and Barack Obama’s Department of Justice will not seek criminal charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner over her refusal to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March 2014. IMAGINE THAT! The DOJ claims that she did not waive her 5th Amendment privileges when she made a statement of her innocence prior to pleading the 5th because get this … “she made only a general claims of innocence.” SERIOUSLY?
The fix has been in from the outset. We not only have a corrupt government where the fox is guarding the hen house, we have one where the fox also is behind the scandal and in charge of prosecuting any such crimes at the hen house. This country has so lost its way I really am beginning to wonder for the first time in my life whether we will ever be able to get it back.
The Justice Department will not seek criminal contempt charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner, the central figure in a scandal that erupted over whether the tax agency improperly targeted conservative political groups.
Ronald Machen, the former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, told House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a seven-page letter this week that he would not bring a criminal case to a grand jury over Lerner’s refusal to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March 2014. The House approved a criminal contempt resolution against Lerner in May 2014, and Machen’s office has been reviewing the issue since then.
Machen said the Oversight Committee “followed proper procedures” in telling Lerner that it had “rejected her claim of privilege and gave her an adequate opportunity to answer the Committee’s questions.”
IRS watchdog probing ‘potential criminal activity’ in Lerner email mess.
However, Machen said Justice Department lawyers determined that Lerner “did not waive her Fifth Amendment right by making an opening statement on May 22, 2013, because she made only a general claims of innocence.”
Machen added: “Given that assessment, we have further concluded that it is not appropriate for a United States Attorney to present the matter to the grand jury for action where, as here, the Constitution prevents the witness from being prosecuted for contempt.”
