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.

College Republicans Executive Director Condemning America First Chapters is a Longtime Never-Trumper

Why are these people in leadership positions in the GOP?

Published

An executive director of the College Republican National Committee who has taken to condemning America First chapters in the light of a letter from the chapter presidents calling upon President Donald Trump to end the H-1B and OPT cheap labor programs has a lengthy track record of opposing Trump, including taking a stringent ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 presidential election.

CRNC Executive Director Benjamin Rajadurai slighted the College Republican chapters that signed the letter calling for an immigration freeze on Friday tweet, falsely claiming that only seven chapters signed the missive. Chapter representatives from more than twenty CR organizations across the country signed the letter to President Trump calling for the President to end the worker visa programs.

Rajadurai appears keen to dismiss the activism of the chapters, despite considerable support for their vision of immigration restriction across broad demographics of Americans. However, it appears he has a very tenuous claim on credibility when it comes to conservative policy, considering the CRNC executive took a strong ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 election. Some of Rajadurai’s tweets indicate he was resolute in opposing Trump at the time:

The Massachusetts man apparently was a Jeb! supporter. Why is he even serving as a Republican Party official if he sees the Republican President as an ‘idiot?’

He saw Donald Trump as ‘racist’ at the time.

He saw Trump’s nomination as a great disappointment.

College Republicans and conservatives across the country expressed great disappointment to Big League Politics when learning that a national CRNC executive is a stringent Never Trumper who steadfastly opposes the conservative ideals they seek to promote.

Christian Secor of America First Bruins expressed disappointment with the alignment of CRNC national leadership.

I was always aware that there were problems in the GOP but I never could have imagined to what extent the Republican Party was selling out the American people. Conservative students from all over America are sick and tired of the way the so called “conservative” movement has been ran and, thankfully, the American people are ready for true conservatism, populism, and tradition, with young people leading the charge.” Rajadurai has endorsed an attempt to de-recognize and replace the prevailing California College Republicans federation with an establishment group.

The spirit of the Republican constituency was overwhelmingly America First, and Never Trumpers were left behind. College Republicans are increasingly having their nationalistic brand of conservatism stifled by these very same Never Trumpers at the CRNC,” said Eoan Harrison of the Santa Clara University CR’s.

Marshall Whinney, of the Bull Moose Party at Penn State, described what he had seen as pervasive Never Trump influence throughout national CRNC institutions.

Our organization came into being after our College Republicans held a secret vote against endorsing Trump in 2016 while classes were not yet in session. Our interactions with like-minded individuals across the country have revealed an alarmingly consistent pattern of fraud being used to keep Never Trumpers in office at many Republican student organizations.

Republicans striving to implement the Make America Great Again agenda that President Donald Trump campaigned and won upon have no choice but the question the legitimacy of official Republican Party institutions that appear to have little to no regard for the President himself.
