According To NY Times Hillary Clinton Approved Russia Uranium Deal After 2 Million Dollar Donation to Clinton Foundation

When the politician, Hillary Clinton comes to mind, most people never use the words, honest, integrity, or incorruptible.

Perhaps it is because we think back to the time when she lied about arriving in Bosnia under sniper fire, without a greeting ceremony, and had to run from the plane to the cars.

Maybe we are thinking back to the time she lied about scrubbing her Email account to hide potentially incriminating evidence that showed that she had sent official State Department as well as confidential information over an unsecured server.

We could even be thinking back to a more recent event when she lied under oath about the Benghazi attack on the American embassy that left four Americans dead.

Whatever the reasons, the former Secretary of State and potential next President of the United States stands accused of another charge of corruption.

The reason for the accusations lies within a New York Times article covering a 2013 uranium deal that was struck with Russia.

The deal allowed for Rosatom, the Russian atomic energy agency, to purchase a Canadian company, known as Uranium One, which had uranium mining stakes across the globe.

The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers, giving them control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the U.S.

The NY Times also reports that during the period between 2009 and 2013, as Russia worked to acquire Uranium One, a series of donations totaling $2.35 million dollars was donated to the Clinton Foundations from Uranium One’s Chairman.

The Clinton’s also received another half million dollars for a single speech from a Russian investment bank after Russia announced its plans to take over Uranium One.

Though it is not new news to see that the Clintons have received large sums of money from foreign interests, in this case it is a conflict of interest for Hillary.

That’s because,

“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.”

In other words, the Clintons received almost 3 million dollars from parties with an interest in making the deal happen during a time when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had to decide whether or not to approve of the deal.

As said earlier, when the politician, Hillary Clinton comes to mind, most people never use the words, honest, integrity, or incorruptible.
