YOUNG REPUBLICAN USES HILLARY’S BENGHAZI LINE WHEN ASKED ABOUT TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS: ‘WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?’
From Red Alert Politics :
In the wake of nationwide protests from liberals demanding that President Trump release his tax returns, a young Republican named Jeff Halm took it upon himself to troll his local CBS News affiliate when he was reached for comment.
“I wanted something that conveyed my disdain for the line of questioning,” Halm told Red Alert Politics in an email. “I wanted to push a little to see if they knew I was messing with them.”
Halm, who is president of the Chicago Young Republicans (CYR; a chapter of the Young Republican National Federation), is a regular guest of CBS 2 for giving the conservative perspective on politics. When they tried to get a reaction from him on the Trump tax protests, Halm lifted a line directly out of Hillary Clinton’s playbook and said, ” What difference at this point does it make?”“
Halm posted the video to Twitter writing that the reporter had no idea he used a Hillary quote.
Hillary infamously said this line during a House Oversight Committee hearing in May 2013 to testify about her role in the 2012 Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead, including US Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens.

7 HILLARY CLINTON REVELATIONS FROM NEW BOOK ‘SHATTERED’ – HOW SHE APOLOGIZED TO OBAMA AFTER LOSING TO RUMP
18 Apr 2017
A new book released this week, titled Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign, details the story behind Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential run against Donald Trump.
Written by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen, the book is the first to investigate why Hillary Clinton’s bid for the presidency was unsuccessful.
The book makes a number of revelations about Clinton and what happened during her campaign. Here are a few of the book’s claims:
Hillary apologized to Obama after conceding to Trump – Shortly after calling Donald Trump to concede defeat, Clinton called Barack Obama and said simply, “Mr. President, I’m sorry. Clinton felt she had let herself, Obama, and the Democratic Party down. “Obama’s legacy and her dreams of the Presidency lay shattered at Donald Trump’s feet. This was on her,” the book reads.
Obama privately criticized Clinton’s use of a private email server – Despite refusing to condemn Clinton’s use of a private email server for classified material on the campaign trail, Obama reportedly believed it “amounted to political malpractice.”
Clinton admitted to an aide that she “engenders bad reactions from people” – The book claims that Clinton admitted that her personality did not appeal to many ordinary voters, a theory confirmed by her election defeat.
Her campaign was badly organized – The campaign lacked focus and had power decentralized, making it difficult to focus on particular issues. “Hillary distributed power so broadly that none of her aides or advisers had control of the whole apparatus,” the book claims.
Huma Abedin sheltered Clinton from criticism – The book alleges that vice campaign chair Huma Abedin would rarely criticize Clinton, and “couldn’t be counted on to relay constructive criticism to Hillary without pointing a finger at the critic.”
Clinton was allegedly dumbfounded by the 2016 election’s populist upswing and her lack of white working class support – Confounded by the success of her Democratic primary challenger Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton reportedly told her longtime confidant Minyon Moore during the Democratic primaries: “I do not understand what is happening in our country.” She also questioned her staff on her to attract support from the white working class. “Why aren’t they with me?” she said. “Why can’t we bring them on board?”
Obama reportedly urged a reluctant Clinton to concede – As Trump piled up wins in key battleground states, Clinton reportedly remained reluctant to concede the election. However, the book claims that Obama urged Clinton to declare defeat and not to “drag it out.” He allegedly reiterated this position to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, adding the importance of Clinton conceding with “dignity.”
Investigative reporter and author Peter Schweizer confirmed John Podesta received $35 million from Vladimir Putin’s company RUSNANO, a.k.a. ‘Putin’s Child’, while he was adviser to Hillary Clinton. Biggest bang for their Russian buck? Russia got 20% control of U.S. uranium thanks to John Podesta lobby firm.
Via FOX and Friends:
Peter Schweizer: In 2011 John Podesta joined the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board a Russian entity called RUSNANO puts a billion rubles, which is about $35 million, into John Podesta’s company. Now, what is RUSNANO? RUSNANO is not a private company, Steve. It is a fund directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact the Russian finance minister called RUSNANO “Putin’s Child.” So you have the Russian government investing in one of John Podesta’s business in 2011 while he is an adviser to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.
Steve Doocy: OK. Does anybody in the Trump circle rise to the level that there is this kind of money involved?
Peter Schweizer: No.
TRUMP: INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON-RUSSIA URANIUM DEAL, WHICH GAVE RUSSIA 20% CONTROL OF U.S. URANIUM AND $145 MILLION TO CLINTON FOUNDATION
Finally! Donald Trump is calling for investigation of Hillary Clinton for selling uranium to Russian company Uranium One, which was also owned by Russian government, giving them 20% control of U.S. uranium. In return, the Clintons got $145 million donations – did not disclose it – for their pay-for-play Clinton foundation. Hillary’s campaign director, John Podesta, not only lobbied for Uranium One but “Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C.”
“In addition to certain ties with one of Russia’s largest banks, the Podesta Group is also linked to the Uranium One sale of U.S. uranium. Yes, the Clinton Campaign’s chairman is linked to a firm that lobbied the U.S. government on behalf of a corporation that eventually sold 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government.
Podesta’s lobbying firm worked for Uranium One after half the company was owned by the Russian government. By 2010, Russia’s state-owned Rosatom controlled a 51% stake in Uranium One.” – https://www.google.com/amp/m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_580dbb26e4b099c4343198ff/amp …
From LIBERAL Huffington Post: Hillary Clinton Is Blaming Russia for WikiLeaks To Conceal John Podesta’s Russian Lobbying Ties
The fear mongering of associating WikiLeaks with a Russian plot to elect Donald Trump ignores the reality that John Podesta’s former lobbying firm worked to further the interests of a Russian-owned corporation and bank. Few people know that Open Podesta Group as once having a $60,000 lobbying deal with Uranium One. In addition to lobbying on behalf of a corporation that was mostly owned by the Russian government, the Podesta Group’s ties to a Russian bank is well-documented.lists the
As stated by John R. Schindler in a 2016 Observer article, the Panama Papers revealed that “Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C.” If you don’t believe this claim, just look at the Podesta Group’s Senate Lobbying Registration. As for other foreign ties to John Podesta, Ben Norton of Salon writes “A key gear in the Clinton machine that has sucked in hundreds of thousands of dollars lobbying on behalf of the Saudi absolute monarchy has also worked for Russia’s biggest bank.”
In addition to certain ties with one of Russia’s largest banks, the Podesta Group is also linked to the Uranium One sale of U.S. uranium. Yes, the Clinton Campaign’s chairman is linked to a firm that lobbied the U.S. government on behalf of a corporation that eventually sold 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government.
…The notion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and John Podesta didn’t know Uranium One would eventually sell 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russian government ignores an inconvenient timeline. First, Podesta’s lobbying firm worked for Uranium One after half the company was owned by the Russian government. By 2010, Russia’s state-owned Rosatom controlled a 51% stake in Uranium One.
CNN contributor and DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile finally admits that she did indeed forward town hall questions to Hillary’s camp in advance.
Fox News reports:
In an essay for Time published Friday, called “Russian DNC Narrative Played Out Exactly As They Hoped,” the Democratic strategist said she had in fact passed on topics, despite saying she had not when her communications with the campaign were leaked by WikiLeaks in October.
“[I]n October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign,” she wrote.
In October, emails from Clinton campaign Chair John Podesta’s account were released by WikiLeaks showing that Brazile – then a CNN contributor – had forwarded questions ahead of a March primary debate.
HILLARY CLINTON $1,200 NEW HAIR! $600 HAIRCUT AND $600 HAIR DYE WHILE HUMA ABEDIN CARRIES HER $2,500 PURSE AND $2,600 TOTE BAG
( Daily Mail ) Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin were spotted together for the first time in months on Thursday, with the pair stopping by Bergdorf Goodman for a quick cut and color.
The former Secretary of State was photographed as she made her way to a waiting car after a day spent at the John Barrett Salon, showing off the results of her new $600 haircut and $600 dye job.
It was a softer and lighter look for Hillary, who likely never saw herself spending a Thursday afternoon inside a Fifth Avenue department store across the street from Trump Tower back in October.
Huma on the other hand seems to have tagged along for work purposes, with photos showing that Hillary’s longtime aide did not have anything done to her beautiful tresses on Thursday.
Those same photos also show that she was tasked with carrying her boss’ bag in addition to her own on the way out, all while trying to maintain her balance on the ice-covered sidewalk outside the building.
In the end, Hillary’s biggest supporter was successful in getting both her $2580 Prada Saffiano tote and her boss’ $2435 Govenchy Antigona bag safely to the car before the group drove away from the department store.
( Breitbart ) Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman said in an interview that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, who met with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, also met with advisers to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
“Well, if you look at some people connected with Hillary Clinton during her campaign, you would probably see that he had lots of meetings of that kind,” Dmitry Peskov told CNN’s GPS host Fareed Zakaria on Sunday. “There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.”
Peskov said it is the Russian ambassador’s job to talk “bilateral relations” with officials on both sides. He added that the meetings were in no way an attempt to interfere in the 2016 election.
“But there were no meetings about elections — electoral process … So if you look at it with intention to demonize Russia, you would probably say that, yes, he was trying to interfere in Hillary’s activities. But it would be nonsense because this is not true,” Peskov said.
Peskov also said that Putin never supported Trump when he was a presidential candidate.
