“POTENTIALLY TREASONOUS ACTIVITY”
by Sharon Rondeau
Clinton was Secretary of State in 2010 when the agreement was executed through the Russian nuclear company Rosatom, reportedly while the FBI was conducting an investigation into money-laundering and bribery, among other crimes, on the part of Russian intermediaries involved in acquiring U.S. uranium at the behest of Russian president Vladimir Putin.
Rosatom purchased a Canadian company now known as “Uranium One” through which it acquired 20% of the U.S. uranium supply in 2010.
At that time, Robert S. Mueller, III was FBI director, succeeded by James B. Comey in 2013. On May 9, President Trump fired Comey, calling him a “grandstander,” among other things.
Congressional Democrats who had previously called for Comey’s firing became indignant at his termination and called for a special counsel to assume the two-pronged “Russia” investigation which the FBI had launched in June of last year. They appeared to be assuaged when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to assume that role within a week of Comey’s firing.
A U.S. confidential informant said to have told the FBI of the Russian bribery scheme over at least four years was bound by a non-disclosure agreement by the Obama DOJ. On Wednesday, the constraint was lifted and discussed with Hannity by his attorney, Victoria Toensing, of DiGenova & Toensing, LLP.
For the last week, new developments in the “Russia collusion” story, which now focuses on Democrat operatives rather than former Trump campaign aides, have been reported almost daily by The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann and Circa’s Sara Carter on “Hannity” after having been put into print.
It is now also reported that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) provided money to a law firm which contracted with a British company, Fusion GPS, for the procurement of a “Russian dossier” used to discredit Clinton’s presidential opponent and now-president, Donald J. Trump.
“That’s the real Russia collusion,” Hannity said at 6:13 in the YouTube video of his show.
The largely-discredited dossier was published by Buzzfeed in January.
Earlier this month, two representatives from Fusion GPS invoked their Fifth-Amendment right to remain silent in front of the House Intelligence Committee, which has been investigating alleged Trump-Russia ties and Russian influence on the 2016 election.
Later in the show, Hannity hosted “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer, who claims that a number of “foreign governments” have “helped to make the Clintons rich,” including $145 million from Russia for the Uranium One arrangement.
That money reportedly was donated to the Clinton Foundation and posed, as reported by left-leaning TIME in April 2015, “a growing problem” for the former secretary of state and two-time Democrat presidential contender.
Since before last November’s election, Trump has been accused of “collusion” with Russian-government operatives who allegedly wanted him to win over Clinton, a claim Trump has vehemently denied. On Wednesday evening, Trump reacted to the newest Clinton-DNC-Russia reports with, “It’s a disgrace. “There was no collusion on my side [but] I had no idea how right I was.”
On Friday, LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret) reminded readers at this publication and elsewhere that on March 17, 2009, he filed a complaint of treason against Obama, naming him a “foreign born domestic enemy” and accusing him of “breaking in and entered the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling, and deceit.”
Fitzpatrick’s complaint was filed with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee; U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth; and the Monroe County, TN grand jury, none of which acted upon it. It was renewed on seven occasions while Obama remained in office.
In July, Fitzpatrick filed a treason complaint against Special Counsel and former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session in which he wrote, in part:
Fitzpatrick was stalked, defamed, ridiculed, jailed, and imprisoned on a three-year sentence stemming directly and indirectly from his complaint lodged against Obama. He was identified as a “potential domestic terrorist” and “sovereign citizen” by Obama’s DHS, FBI, and, by extension, the Tennessee Department of Safety and McMinn County Sheriff’s Department.
Along with Schweizer, Gorka appeared as a guest, with Hannity remarking to both that a meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a Russian attorney during the 2016 campaign had been called “treason” by many.
Schweizer said that the $145 million provided to the Clinton Foundation by “nine shareholders” who sought to “corner the world’s uranium market” in accordance with Putin’s ambitions. “She knew about this,” Schweizer said of Clinton, referencing “top-secret” emails released by WikiLeaks last year.
Gorka said that the “dossier” was used to spread propaganda and questioned why former FBI Director James B. Comey was reportedly willing to pay Fusion GPS for it, as has been reported by some media outlets.
“They sold out America’s security for money,” Hannity exclaimed at the end of Schweizer’s commentary.
In response, at 23:40, Gorka called the Uranium One affair “potentially treasonous activity.” “Members of the Obama administration at the cabinet level, as there was an FBI investigation of racketeering on uranium by Russia in America, approved this deal. Hillary Clinton approved the deal that would give 20% of our uranium to a nation like Russia that supports rogue regimes. This is massive, Sean,” he said.
