Patriot Retort: It’s a lot to process this Uranium One scandal.
But when you get into the nuts and bolts of it, there is no doubt that it is the most damning political scandal in decades.
And at the heart of it is not just the greedy, grasping Clintons, but the Obama Administration, the FBI and the DOJ.
And Andy McCarthy at National Review has written what is probably the best recounting of the whole sordid thing.
McCarthy breaks it all down for you.
But be prepared. As you read it, you’ll find yourself growing furious.
It’s makes my blood boil that the very same people who are investigating alleged “collusion” between Trump and Russia were fully aware of this Uranium One mishegas and helped to cover it up.
And that isn’t even the worst of it.
Here’s just a sample of what McCarthy has to say.
Here’s the kicker: The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal.
The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their “public service.” The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.
