Why Did Obama Ignore Russian Interference Before the Election? Two Words: “Uranium One”
Ever since Special Counsel Mueller announced that indictments had been handed down against 13 Russian Nationals for “meddling” in our Presidential Election of last year, Liberal Trolls on Social Media have been loudly proclaiming that it was done on behalf of President Donald J. Trump, despite the fact that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that no American had anything to do with it.
That being the case, why didn’t Obama and his Administration attempt to do something about it before the election?
Our current “Chief Executive” wonders about that, also.
USA Today reports that
President Trump blamed his predecessor for turning a blind eye to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election Monday.
“Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election. So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?” Trump said on Twitter.
The attack on Obama was the latest in a series of presidential tweets reacting to a grand jury indictment handed up Friday against 16 Russian nationals entities accused of using social media to meddle in the presidential election.
It’s been a common complaint from Trump, who has alternately downplayed the extent of Russian interference and blamed his predecessor for failing to stop it.
In a series of tweets last June, Trump said Obama ignored Russian cyberattacks because he thought Democrat Hillary Clinton would win the election.
Last August, he tweeted that Obama knew about the Russian interference three years ago “but he didn’t want to anger Russia!”
On Sunday, Trump received validation of that view from an unexpected source; Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.
“I said all along that I thought the Obama administration should have done more,” Schiff told CNN on Sunday. “They were very wary of appearing to be putting their hand on the scale in the election.”
But Schiff also said, “none of that is an excuse for this president to sit on his hands.” He said Trump should implement the sanctions against Russia that Congress authorized last year.
There were two very good reasons that Obama ignored all of the “Russian Interference”:
- He believed that the “helping hand” of the Russians would allow Hillary to win the Presidency.
- He was afraid that the Russians would make public all of the “collusion” involved in the “Uranium One” Scandal.
Back on October 23, 2017, Breitbart.com presented the following “Fact Sheet” about the scandal…
- Peter Schweizer Broke the Uranium One Scandal
Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer broke the Uranium One scandal in his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. In the book, he reported that Clinton’s State Department, along with other federal agencies, approved the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia and that nine foreign investors in the deal gave $145 million to Hillary and Bill Clinton’s personal charity, the Clinton Foundation.
- The New York Times Confirmed the Scandal in 2015
The New York Times confirmed Schweizer’s Uranium One revelations in a 4,000-word front-page story by a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter. It detailed how the Russian energy giant Rosatom had taken over the Canadian firm with three separate purchases between 2009 and 2013, largely coinciding with Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state.
- The FBI Uncovered Evidence that Russian Money Was Funneled to the Clinton Foundation
The Hill reported last week that ahead of the deal, the FBI had uncovered “substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering” to expand Russia’s nuclear footprint in the U.S. as early as 2009. The agency also found that Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. to benefit the Clinton Foundation. The Justice Department would sit on the evidence for four years before looking to prosecute, by which time the deal had been approved.
- Congress Is Now Investigating
The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a probe into the scandal and has sent requests for more information to 10 federal agencies involved in the approval of the partial sale of Uranium One, asking what they knew about the FBI investigation and when.
- Bill Clinton Was Paid $500,000 for a Speech in Moscow
Bill Clinton bagged a $500,000 speech in Moscow paid for by a Kremlin-backed bank shortly after Russia announced its intention to take a majority stake in the company. According to the Times, Clinton traveled to Moscow in June 2010, the same month Rosatom struck its deal for its majority stake in Uranium One.
- The Clinton Foundation Took Big Bucks from Uranium Investors
According to theTimes, The Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, a mining investor who was also the chairman of Uranium One when Rosatom acquired it. It also received $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more from Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining financier whose company merged with Uranium One.
- Senate Republicans Want an FBI Gag Order Lifted Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has called for the Justice Department to lift the gag order on the FBI’s whistleblower, indicating that he may have more explosive revelations related to the case and on what the Clintons and the Obama administration knew about the case and when they knew it.
I believe that the Trump Russian Collusion Fairy tale was actually a False Flag Operation designed by the Democratic Party Hierarchy, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Street Media, and their operatives on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration itself, to keep the nation’s attention diverted to the Trump/Russia Lie, when in reality the Uranium One Treasonous Operation by Hillary Clinton WAS AND REMAINS THE STORY.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush, whom he served under for 10 years.
When Barack Hussein Obama became President, Mueller served under him for 2 more years. During that time, he acted as a “mule” for Secretary of State Clinton, carrying a sample of the before-mentioned seized uranium BACK to Vladimir Putin via the Russian Embassy.
Mueller’s past, plus the fact that he recruited lawyers who are Democratic Donors to fill out his “Investigative Staff” has led me and others to throw up a red flag about this guy, believing that he is another Establishment Political Weasel like James Comey, who followed Mueller as Director of the FBI.
Trump’s “Russiagate” is an invention of the Democratic Party in more ways than one. Not only was Hillary Clinton guilty of nefarious dealings with the Russians when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, she and her Campaign Staff attempted to work with the Russians in an attempt to sabotage the campaign of Donald J. Trump in order to overcome her own shortcomings and win the Presidency. When that didn’t happen, she, along with the Democrat Elite, made up the version of “Russiagate” which the MSM and Liberal Political Activists (but, I repeat myself) have been bombarding skeptical Americans with for the first year of the presidency of Donald J. Trump.
There are several players involved in the Obama Administration who knew about Uranium One and they ALL need to be heard from, including Obama, Hillary, and Holder.
As I have written before, this whole massive misdirection play which I call the Trump-Russian Collusion Fairy Tale is to going to go down as one of the biggest “nothingburgers” in American History.
And, the Obama Administration will be known as the most corrupt Administration in American History, with Hillary Clinton being the most corrupt Secretary of State.
Obama will leave a legacy, alright. A legacy of corruption.
Until He Comes,
