Crooked Bill Clinton asked permission from Hillary Clinton’s State Department to meet with Russian nuclear officials after his $500,000 speech in Moscow.
The Hill reports:
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkadi Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010 email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to Mrs. Clinton’s team.
“Ultimately, President Clinton did not meet with these people,” Angel Urena, a spokesperson for Clinton, told The Hill.
The real Russia collusion! Hillary Clinton gave Putin ownership of 20 percent of US uranium.
Via Circa News:
The bribery schemes included delivering thousands of dollars in yellow envelopes, laundering tens of thousands of dollars in briefcases or wiring thousands of dollars through shell companies through the Seychelle Islands, Latvia, Cyprus and Switzerland to name a few.

John Solomon and Alison Spann of The Hill:
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.
Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

REVEALED: Harvey Weinstein Helped Pay for Bill Clinton’s Legal Fees During Monica Lewinsky Scandal
In August 1998, a Washington Post report noted that Bill Clinton was being accused of perjury and obstruction of justice regarding his testimony about his conduct with Monica Lewinsky.
” Hollywood was quick to come to the president’s aid. Among the 62 donors giving the maximum $10,000 were performers and directors such as Tom Hanks, Barbra Streisand, Michael Douglas, Ron Howard, Norman Lear, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw-Spielberg as well as studio executives Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen, Harvey Weinstein and Bud Yorkin.”
“We believe that no first family should face such a horrendous financial burden while trying to carry out the work which the American people elected him to do,” said David Pryor, the former Democratic senator and Clinton friend from Arkansas who founded the legal fund.
TO HILLARY: “There was a sexual assaulter in the White House. He was called Bill Clinton” – from Corey Lewandowski
On “FOX & Friends Weekend,” Corey Lewandowski slammed Hillary Clinton for calling President Donald J. Trump a “sexual assaulter” while roundly dismissing past allegations of sexual impropriety against her husband as old news.
“There was a sexual assaulter in the White House. He was called Bill Clinton. That’s the sexual assaulter she should be talking about in the White House.”

- Bill Clinton tossed his copy in the trash can and is heartsick over his wife’s current blame-game book tour
Page Six reports:
Edward Klein, who has written several books about the Clintons and Kennedys, has a hotly anticipated book, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump,” out Oct. 30.
In the meantime, he reveals that Hillary Clinton’s finger-pointing book, “What Happened” — which is chock-full of excuses for her shocking election loss to Donald Trump — may be a best seller, but Bill Clinton tossed his copy in the trash can and is heartsick over his wife’s current blame-game book tour.
“Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes with a red pencil,” said a close Clinton family friend. “But she refused to even read his corrections, and he got so furious that he tossed the entire manuscript into the garbage.
“He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” the friend continued.
“He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’ ”
- Anita Dunn, a top Obama campaign staffer and former White House communications director, helped offer damage control advice for Harvey Weinstein.
- Dunn was not paid by Weinstein for her help
- Lanny Davis, former special counsel to Bill Clinton, has been central to the PR effort for Weinstein, who is a major Democratic donor
( Buzzfeed ) A former top adviser to Barack Obama was among the list of public relations professionals and lawyers consulting Harvey Weinstein over a major New York Times story, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Anita Dunn, a top Obama campaign staffer and former White House communications director, helped offer damage control advice for the Hollywood mogul.
On Thursday afternoon, the New York Times published a major investigation into Weinstein that features on-the-record claims of sexual harassment, including from actor Ashley Judd.
The Hollywood Reporter and Variety reported Wednesday that the Times was working on the story on Weinstein’s personal “behavior.” The two Hollywood trade outlets also reported that NBC News’ Ronan Farrow is working on a piece about Weinstein for the New Yorker.
Dunn was not paid by Weinstein for her help, according to one of the people familiar with the matter. But she did offer her PR advice, including in regards to a Sept. 23 Times story written by Megan Twohey. The story, about a controversy over Weinstein’s work with AIDS charity amfAR, was thought to be a precursor to the big investigation posted on Thursday.
Sources said that Lanny Davis, former special counsel to Bill Clinton, has been central to the PR effort for Weinstein, who is a major Democratic donor. Davis is engaged as an attorney providing legal advice to Weinstein, according to a spokesperson for his law firm.
Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were all smiles as they attended the Presidents Cup in New Jersey.
The trio posed for photos with players and wives on each team during the opening ceremony on Thursday.
Each former president also wore their Presidents Cup polos to the event.
It was the first time three US presidents have attended the matches at the same time since this event began in 1994, named after the highest office in the land.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump, who equally loves golf, had his hands busy with the 70th anniversary of the National Security Council, which took place in Washington, DC.
The 12th Presidents Cup between the US and an International team began in raucous but light-hearted fashion in front of the past three presidents at Liberty National.
A packed crowd in the grandstands, surrounding the first tee, warmly greeted Obama, Bush and Clinton, all whom are keen golfers, who entered via a tunnel and took their seats to the right of the first tee.
