How fascinating that the media is picking apart this meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer, yet conveniently forget what dirt she had on Hillary is much worse. The media is obviously, yet craftily, covering for the Clintons. So far, the Clintons “collusion” with Russia appears to be exceedingly more sinister than any of the bold and admittedly false accusations of Russian hacking slung toward Donald Trump. “If you want to talk about having relationships with Russia, I’d look no further than the Clintons,” Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a briefing last week. “Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank, personally thanked by President Putin,” Huckabee Sanders said. And Huckabee Sanders is correct…
The speech is now coming back to haunt the Clintons, considering the company that cut the check was tied to the scandal that spurred the Global Magnitsky Act, a bill that imposed sanctions on Russians designated as human-rights abusers and eventually would become law in 2012.
The Global Magnitsky Act was named for 36-year-old tax attorney Sergei Magnitsky, who died in the custody of the Russian government after accusing the government and organized crime of stealing hundreds of millions of dollars from a foreign company, Hermitage Capital Management. Magnitsky, hired by foreign investor and Hermitage owner William Browder, had tracked what turned out to be hundreds of millions of dollars in tax fraud. He reported the fraud to the Russian authorities, but instead of pursuing charges against the alleged offender, Russian authorities jailed Magnitsky. –Fox News
After Magnitsky died in November 2009, Browder said Magnitsky proved Renaissance officials were among those orchestrating the scheme; the same Renaissance that Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to give a speech to.
This was the same law Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was lobbying against during her sit-down with Trump Jr. last year. And back in 2010, it would have put the Clintons on her side.
We all know what happens when one doesn’t side with the Clintons, and it isn’t pretty.
