At first glance, you sort of look at anything arriving from the Fake News Industrial Complex (FNIC) as just that: Fake News. The Hill, noted for its bile-producing venom spewed daily toward the Trump administration, has gone on record for the first time since Trump first announced his candidacy to say that it's not 100% Leftist, but only 99.9%. That's a relief! We were beginning to think you were a lost cause.
However, being that I am a skeptical person, I read with much interest everything I could into the piece and found zero references to Trump's involvement (at least, evidence-wise) in the Russian collusion that supposedly took place. Resigning myself to having missed something, I once again read the piece and am now convinced of two things.
One is that The Hill has been gaining readership only due to their hatred-laced rants about Trump and his supporters because this Leftist rag only appeals to the Jackass Party, the endangered Swamp RINOs and the Antifa crowd. Two is that they have stumbled upon a subject that is just too important to ignore.
The Hill boasts of being the third-leading political news source, only behind CNN and Fox News. In July of this year, they made John Solomon their new executive vice president in charge of digital video. In their push to grab a bigger audience in the ever-growing social media construct of Fake News, they needed an extra slice of the pie over the Washington Post, the New York Times, and Politico. John Solomon is expected to propel the Leftist rag into the new future of Fake News.
Thus, he has taken this opportunity with a co-writer, Allison Spann, to grab this story which begs telling. Make no mistake, John Solomon is a Leftist through and through with ties to the Jackass Party and Fake News, but he enlisted the help of another media-savvy writer with ties to Fox News.
In an effort to show that The Hill can be just as down-the-middle honest in the FNIC, they have reported on this collusion deal between the Obama administration, the Clintons, and the Russians.
Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.
In essence, what was going on was that Putin installed several high-ranking Russian officials with nuclear knowledge in the United States as far back as 2004. Through these clandestine individuals, they began to weave a network of contacts in the American government and within powerful US industries and corporate executives with ties to nuclear endeavors.
