Since Donald Trump’s election, the media has been wild to find all the mythical “connections” between the president and Russia. Meanwhile, the media has completely ignored the quid pro quo perpetrated by Hillary who sided with Russian policies even as her husband was the lucky recipient of a $500,000 fee for a speech given in Moscow.
If anyone wants to see a Russian pay off, they need but look at this story on Fox News:
The Russian lawyer who landed a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. during last year’s presidential campaign with the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton had one big thing in common with the Democratic candidate: Both had opposed Russia sanctions targeting human-rights abusers.
That’s right, Hillary was siding with the Russians against American efforts to hold Russia to account for human rights abuses.
But that isn’t all. Her erstwhile hubby, Bill Clinton, was the lucky, lucky recipient of a big payday given to him by the Russians supposedly for a “speech” he gave in Moscow.
Further, former Secretary of State Clinton’s initial opposition coincided with a $500,000 speech her husband gave in Moscow – a link her 2016 campaign fought to downplay in the press, according to WikiLeaks-released documents.
So, why are meaningless meetings and emails between Trump aides of more interest to the media than actual payoffs to the Clintons? The Trump administration is asking just that question.
“If you want to talk about having relationships with Russia, I’d look no further than the Clintons,” Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a briefing last week. “Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank, personally thanked by President Putin.”
It gets even worse. Even as the media claims that Trump was working hand-in-hand with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, not a shred or evidence has ever turned up to show this wild claim.
But guess who WAS working directly for Putin?
The former president indeed had received a personal call from then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressing his appreciation for the speech. According to Mrs. Clinton’s ethics disclosure form filed while she was secretary of State, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 by the Russia-based finance company Renaissance Capital for his June 29, 2010, speech in Moscow to its employees and guests attending the company’s annual conference.
Yep. Bill was working directly with Putin.
All this was occurring while Congress was trying to pass sanctions against Russia for human rights abuses.
And after Bill’s big payday, guess who was opposing those sanctions?
Yep, Hillary Clinton.
Looks like collusion to me. How about you?
