Hillary Clinton claims that investigating her role in Uranium One would be ‘abuse of power’

Published

Once again signaling that she believes she is above the law, Hillary Clinton has argued that a special council investigating her role in the Uranium One deal would be an “abuse of power” and signal that the US is now a “dictatorship.”

Speaking to Mother Jones on Wednesday, Clinton said that investigating her would “have devastating consequences for the justice system in America.”

“If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust our justice system,” Clinton said. “It will be incredibly demoralizing to people who have served at the Justice Department, under both Republicans and Democrats, because they know better. But it will also send a terrible signal to our country and the world that somehow we are giving up on the kind of values that we used to live by and we used to promote worldwide.”

Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that top prosecutors have been asked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into whether or not a special counsel should be appointed to look into Clinton’s role in the controversial Uranium One deal and donations to her family’s foundation.

The deal involved the Russian state-owned atomic energy giant Rosato gradually taking control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013. While these transactions were taking place, people with deep ties to the company were donating to the Clinton Foundation, including $2.35 million transferred into the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One’s chairman’s own family foundation. These donations were not publicly disclosed, despite a deal she had made with the Obama administration regarding transparency.

Additionally, the NYT reports, “shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”

On Thursday, the confidential informant for the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s role in Uranium One went public. The informant identified himself to Reuters as William Campbell and stated that he wants to testify about what he saw while undercover.

“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist and I have it,” Campbell said.

Campbell is a former lobbyist for a Russian firm.

1,100 Liberal Prosecutors, Bureaucrats, Demand Bill Barr’s Resignation from DOJ

The letter is indicative of just how left-wing the Department of Justice’s culture has become.

Published

on

More than 1,100 former Department of Justice prosecutors and employees signed a letter released Sunday demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr resign from office.

The letter takes a staunchly partisan Democratic tone, leaving no doubt as to their partisan allegiances of the high-ranking government employees who have signed it. The letter claims that Barr is “doing the President’s personal bidding” for clamping down on a culture of corruption present within elements of the powerful government entity.

The liberal bureaucrats are especially upset with Barr’s intervention in the criminal case of a former Trump campaign advisor, Roger Stone. Stone was set to be sentenced to a draconian and lengthy prison sentence for process crimes that amount to no more than lying to congress, a witch hunt that had many James Comey-style elite DOJ employees smitten with glee. Barr intervened to overturn the sentencing goals of prosecutors tasked with the case, leading to several of them resigning in protest.

The moralistic and sanctimonious letter claims that Barr is somehow harming the credibility of the already controversial department, but the DoJ alumni that have openly endorsed it seem largely unaware that their own endorsement of a staunchly partisan and anti-Trump statement does far more to harm the already- questionable credibility of the department.

The letter from outraged bureaucrats is one of the latest incidences that suggest a liberal institutional bias prevailing at nearly every level of the Department of Justice. A chief FBI press officer was recently forced to resign after it was revealed that he accepted lavish gifts from New York Times and CNN reporters.

Also, as Stone remains lined up for a draconian prison sentence for conversations with government employees, anti-Trump agitator Andrew McCabe appears set to wholly escape any accountability for his naked partisanship revealed throughout the 2016 election.
