Did Somebody Say Collusion With Russians? Hillary's Very Own Russian
The Clinton can is as full of worms as her harshest critics ever imagined
it was, and now the worms are turning. Washington is agog, liberal and
conservative alike, as the details of the spreading story of confusion,
chicanery and crime in Hillary's campaign for president emerge from the
dark and fetid places so abundant in the capital.
Hillary thought she had the presidency in the can, as her friends in
Hollywood might have put it, but it turns out that there was no room in
the can for a mere presidency. There were too many interesting worms.
It's turning out that there was in fact Russian meddling in the election
last year, and it was not meddling in behalf of Donald Trump, as Hillary
and the Democrats have been so loudly decrying for months, but meddling in
behalf of the little lady late of Little Rock.
Two tales of chicanery are hotly pursuing Hillary and prominent figures in
her campaign. The first is the uranium scam, the purchase of certain
assets, arranged and managed by Canadian "facilitators" who greased the
path of these assets to the Russians with enormous donations (the grease)
to the Clinton Foundation, and even a speech for Bubba in Moscow. He
pocketed a cool half-million dollars for reworking an oldie and not even
necessarily a goodie. This was a transaction that had to be approved by
the State Department, and who better to approve it than a secretary of
The FBI discovered this grease moving back and forth in a vast bribery
scheme - bigger even than the vast right-wing media that could make up
sleazy stuff about a president and a White House intern. The existence of
this vast bribery scheme was not disclosed to the agencies of the
government examining the details of a transfer in 2010 of American
commercial nuclear assets to Russia.
There was no attempt by the FBI to break up the bribery scheme, and five
years later, Atty. Gen. Eric Holder and President Obama's Justice
Department disclosed a plea bargain to settle the case with the Russian
managing the bribes on a convenient Friday afternoon when the story could
be put quietly to sleep, where it slumbered until the Hill, a daily
newspaper on Capitol Hill, shook it awake last week.
Conveniences, if not conspiracies, had to be served. Mr. Obama and his
secretary of State were hard at work "resetting" U.S.-Russian relations,
and the FBI, then under direction of Robert Mueller, was going easy on the
investigation. Hillary and her campaign were saved from exposure lest
national interests be compromised. What was good for Hillary was good for
America. It's a continuing source of amazement how coincidences like this
work in a swamp.
Not that Mr. Mueller, a rampart of rectitude in the nation's capital,
famous as the lawyer who never emasculates an ethic, would suffer anything
questionable, but as Holman Jenkins Jr. observes in The Wall Street
Journal, "Mr. Mueller has the means, motive and opportunity to obfuscate
and distract from matters embarrassing to the FBI, while pleasing a large
part of the political spectrum. He need only confine his focus to the
flimsy, disingenuous but popular (with the media) accusation that the
shambolic Trump campaign colluded with the Russians." And so it came to
The uranium scam, which requires concentration to follow all the twists
and turns, leads inexorably to "the dirty dossier," which, being about
sex, does not require such concentration, because sex is never about
This is the dossier retailing lurid tales about naked ladies cavorting
with the Donald without interruption even when nature called. Just as
Bubba educated inquiring minds about the mechanics of oral sex, so Hillary
now educates a later generation about golden showers that require no
Hillary's campaign had a high old time with the tales, spinning them along
to eager media just before the inauguration of President Trump. Hillary
and the Democrats were outraged, of course, aghast at details of the
Russian romp, with endless tut-tuts at Donald Trump for so defiling
traditional values with such untraditional behavior. Distraught Democrats
hardly knew what to say, but said it anyway.
But such stories rarely survive the light of day, and it turns out that
Hillary's campaign lawyer, one Marc Elias, brokered a deal between the
Hillary campaign and the Democratic National Committee and Fusion GPS, a
Washington dealer in campaign dirt, to make up the smarmy stuff. Now a lot
of reporters, some at The Washington Post and some at The New York Times,
are complaining that Hillary's lawyer lied to them. Heaven forfend!
Did somebody say collusion with Russians?
STILL can't understand why liberal Democrats are so in hate with Russia
these days. They LOVED Russian politics, i.e., Socialism/Communism until
Trump whooped that wide-load Clinton's fat ass. Fucking hypocrites.
