More creatures from the swamp.

During the 2016 presidential campaign we learned that while she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton was instrumental in approving a deal under which the Russians gained control of 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

We also learned that in the weeks and months prior to the approval of that deal, nearly $150 million dollars flowed from Russia and Russian-controlled interests into the coffers of the Clinton Foundation. In addition, former president Bill Clinton personally received a half million dollars for a speech in 2010 to a Russian-owned investment bank.

All of this was discussed at length on talk radio and in the conservative blogosphere. (To the surprise of few, it did not attract much coverage from the likes of ABC, CBS, NBC, the Washington Post, etc.)

To Hillary Clinton’s opponents – indeed to any intellectually honest observer – the timing of the approval of the Russian uranium deal by Hillary Clinton’s State Department and payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Bill Clinton personally certainly looked bad. If there wasn’t a quid pro quo, the whole thing certainly had that unpleasant aroma.

Fast forward then to the morning of Wednesday, November 9, 2016. Hillary Clinton had just lost an election that almost everyone was certain that she would win. Unable to admit that she was a terrible candidate with a poor message who got outworked by a political novice, Hillary and her supporters began spinning the story that the Russians had colluded with supporters of Donald Trump to “rig” the election. The media took up the story and kept it alive.

Fast forward again to the spring of this year when President Trump made the decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. That firing touched off a political firestorm that led to calls from Democrats and even some Republicans for an investigation into Donald Trump and possible collusion with the Russians.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein gave in to that pressure and appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel charged with looking into ties between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Up to, concurrent with and since that appointment, not one shred of evidence has come forward that supports charges of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

But according to a story in The Hill newspaper this week, Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein knew prior to the approval of that 2010 Russian uranium deal that Russian uranium industry officials were engaged in bribery, extortion, kickbacks and money laundering. Mueller and Rosenstein chose to remain silent – effectively covering the story up. Thus they are in essence co-conspirators with Mrs. Clinton and her possibly treasonous dealings with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

That Rod Rosenstein put Robert Mueller in charge of investigating Donald Trump’s involvement with Russia would be laughable were it not so deadly serious. Robert Mueller needs to resign, as does Rod Rosenstein.

And then, if there is any justice to be had from the cabinet department bearing that name, Mueller and Rosenstein should be investigated for criminal corruption.

The swamp indeed.

    The swamp will never be drained until people realize that to DRAIN THE SWAMP, you have to pull the plug!!! Pull the plug, don’t leave the same ones in there that keeps doing the same old song and dance on us time after time! If they don’t live up to their promises…PULL THE PLUG on them. Let them try another line of work instead of using us to become filthy rich and then try and make us believe they aren’t! They spend a life time amassing untold wealth off OUR backs. KICK them out! PULL THE PLUG and make them WORK for a living instead of living off OUR BACKS! Why do you think they do not want term limits? Because term limits would limit how much they make off of us taxpayers. When are people going to wake up to the fact that they are not working for US…they want to keep US working for THEM! DRAIN THE SWAMP can’t happen quick enough!

  2. So, why no calls to investigate the Clinton connection to the Russians? Isn’t it a lot more glaring. And in fact, isn’t the Trump connection no more than liberal and media fabrication with no shred of evidence thus far or likely ever.

    You are spot on correct Mr. Gleiser with another outstanding essay.
    —————————————————————————————–
    You are also correct in that not much “positive” news coverage is to be expected from “the meatball, the eyeball, the strutting bird, and the compost.”
    Your commentary Mr. Gleiser, along with conservative talk radio which airs on your station KTBB is the best place on radio in East Texas to get the REAL NEWS. And Fox News / Fox Business Channels on television,
    Keep on telling us the truth because the “fake news” is out there and it’s sadly all too prevalent as President Trump has rightly said on numerous occasions.
    Also, facebook dot com DonaldTrump, Lara Trump usually gives a weekly summary on Fridays [under the videos tab] of approximately 3:00 minutes length of the “real news.” She gives a TV newscast style presentation about what major accomplishments the President has been working on during that particular week – very enlightening indeed and it’s the TRUTH, and that, is something the “left” MSM does not report.

  4. This Russian collusion canard that Senate Dems rail about? Please. It’s a nyetburger!

    Thanks for staying on the Hillary Clinton story, which so clearly continues to distract the president.

    As does deafening silence from Team Mueller, working methodically toward the reveal that terrifies Trump: HE’S BROKE, up-to-his-keester in untenable debt TO Russians, after U.S.A. lenders shut-him-off for stiffing everyone he could.

    The “magic elixir” that inoculates one against the stench of the SWAMP (I like the term SEWER better because of the decay and rot it conveys) is an EXTREME HATRED of TRUMP: a byproduct of the swamp itself, commonly called the excrement from its own creatures. Once hooked on it, you must have it to continue to deny truth and good judgment in any form.

    If the Swamp fits, wear it! The Bush family has much more in common with the globalist establishment RHINOs (McCain, etc.) than the Swamp Slayers that believe in American Nationalism that is the Beacon of Freedom and Free Enterprise that used to be the envy of the World. True Patriots (Reagan, Trump, etc.) deliberately expose Tyrants and Leftists across the globe that don’t value our Unalienable Rights (from God as guaranteed by the Constitution). These Patriots are driven to defend these Rights at great personal risk as they expose and hopefully defeat the Swamp’s stranglehold on America. Those who can’t smell the stench of the Swamp are destined to join (repeat) it.
