As the Department of Justice continues to collect damning information linking Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to the Uranium One scandal, someone else is getting implicated as well…Jeff Sessions. New evidence has been uncovered that he helped Obama and Hillary (almost) get away with the whole thing.
The recent shocking report states that under Sessions, the Justice Department made sure that Obama and Hillary’s connection to the Uranium One scandal appeared much less important than it obviously was.
Both Attorney General Sessions in testimony last week, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a letter to the Senate last month, tried to suggest there was no connection between Uranium One and the nuclear bribery case. Their argument was that the criminal charges weren’t filed until 2014, while the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approval of the Uranium One sale occurred in October 2010, The Hill reports
“The way I understand that matter is that the case in which Mr. Mikerin was convicted was not connected to the CFIUS problem that occurred two to three years before,” Sessions testified to the House Judiciary Committee last week, echoing Rosenstein’s letter from a few weeks earlier.
This would be all good, except records show that FBI counterintelligence reported the first unlawful payments in the bribery/kickback scheme in late 2009, a whole YEAR before the CFIUS approval.
President Trump is tired of the games and has warned Sessions and the entire Justice Department, either they step in and step up, or he will take extreme measures.
Trump has shared some of his thoughts about the issue on Twitter. “This is real collusion and dishonesty,” Trump wrote on Twitter, responding to Donna Brazile’s revelation that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was controlling DNC operations and fundraising well before winning her primary.
“Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering – where is our Justice Department?” Trump wondered.
Trump said he thought Clinton’s “deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus…” all deserved closer scrutiny.
“People are angry,” Trump continued on Twitter. “At some point, the Justice Department, and the FBI must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!”
“I look at what’s going on with the Justice Department, well, why aren’t they going after Hillary Clinton with her emails and dossier?” he asked. “It’s very discouraging to me. To be honest, I’m very unhappy about it.”
