The Tangled Web: Hillary’s Entanglement With Russia and Fusion GPS

I am an avid reader.  Besides the columns I write every day, I also read dozens of articles when I see something interesting.  One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the fact that when I read an article, another article pops into my head that seems related.  Some may claim that by piecing things together, I am creating a conspiracy theory.

But I must object.  My conclusions and suppositions may indeed be up for discussion, and rightly so, but the facts I present are facts.  That is undeniable.  In this article, you will discover the many ties has will the people that Donald Trump Jr is accused of treason for meeting.

The idea for this article (Which you will find to be excruciatingly long but necessarily so to connect all the dots.  The string began when I read an article in the Conservative Tribune about how the Hillary crew killed a story from Bloomberg that was to tie Hillary Clinton’s opposition to the Magnitsky Act, which Putin absolutely hates.  It imposes sanctions against certain Russians and Russian entities.

The article tells of a speaking engagement by Bill Clinton in which a Russian Bank with close ties to the Kremlin paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a half hour speech.  Nice work if you can get it.  But how many men have ever been married to the Secretary of State?  A former Soviet Intelligence Officer by the name of  Rinat Akhmetshin was leading the opposition of the Magnitsky Act.  He was working through the Human Rights Accountability Global Initiative Foundation (HRAGIF).  Guess who else works for them.  Natalia Veselnitskaya, an associate of HRAGIF.

Both Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin were in the Trump Tower meeting with Trump Jr.  They also worked Fusion GPS, the originators of the mostly debunked Trump Dossier.  Fusion GPS heavily supported Clinton in the 2016 election and have refused to tell congress what it knows.  To top it off, it seems that Fusion GPS never registered as a lobbyist for Russia as required by law.

Why would a company like Fusion GPS undermine Trump with the fake dossier if Russia wanted Trump to win the election?  Why would people they are working with for the benefit of Russia lie about why they wanted to see Donald Trump Jr if Russia wanted Trump to win?

They wouldn’t.  Do you think Trump Jr would have met with  Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin if he knew of their close ties to Fusion GPS?

“The issue is of particular concern to the Senate Judiciary Committee given that when Fusion GPS reportedly was acting as an unregistered agent of Russian interests, it appears to have been simultaneously overseeing the creation of the unsubstantiated dossier of allegations of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Grassley said in a letter to the Department of Justice.

The dossier, containing salacious allegations pointing to collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, was leaked to the media in January, prompting Trump to deny its contents. It later emerged that the FBI had hired Steele to dig into Trump’s purported Russia links even as Russian operatives hired Fusion GPS for a separate high profile political battle.

According to a complaint filed with the Justice Department, Fusion GPS headed the pro-Russia campaign to kill the Global Magnitsky Act, which imposes sanctions on Russians designated as human rights abusers. This was the same time, Grassley said, that the FBI was relying on the anti-Trump dossier and the man who produced it for Fusion to further its investigation into Trump and his Russian ties.

Is there any other reason Russia would want Hillary over Trump.  Yes. Yes. yes.  145 million reasons.  That’s how much was donated to the Clinton Foundation by nine shareholders in the Canadian company Uranium One, that needed Hillary to sign off on a deal selling their company to Russia and giving Russia 20% of all uranium mined in this country.

The Clinton Foundation itself took money from Russian officials and Putin-connected oligarchs.  They also took donations from:

  • Viktor Vekselberg, a Putin confidant who gave through his company, Renova Group
  •  Andrey Vavilov, a former Russian government official who was Chairman of SuperOx, a research company that was part of the “nuclear Cluster” at the Russian government’s Skolkovo research facility
  •  Elena Baturina, the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, who apparently gave them money through JSC Inteco, an entity that she controls

Then there is the glaring fact that the Clinton Foundation also scored $145 million in donations from nine shareholders in a Canadian uranium company called Uranium One that was sold to the Russian government in 2010. The deal required the approval of several federal government agencies, including Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The deal allowed Rosatom, the Russian State Nuclear Agency, to buy assets that amounted to 20 percent of American uranium.  Rosatom, by the way controls the Russian nuclear arsenal.

Equally troubling: some of those donations were hidden and not disclosed by the Clintons. President Obama required the Clinton Foundation to disclose all contributions as a condition of Hillary Clinton becoming Secretary of State. But that did not happen. The only reason the hidden donations ever came to light is because we uncovered them by combing through Canadian tax records.

Let me also point out that in opposing the Magnitsky Act, she was basically saying Russian violations of human rights was not worth acting on.

So we have Clinton tied to two of the Russians at the Trump meeting, Fusion GPS, Russian banks, Russian uranium and Putin himself.  But where are the connections to Donald Trump?

Here is the bottom line.  Hillary Clinton, Rinat Akhmetshin, Fusion GPS and  Natalia Veselnitskaya  all collected money for working on behalf of the Russian government.  Although they all insist those actions were above board and honest, all of them attempted to hide what they were doing.

Now Akhmetshin claims that Trump Jr accepted a folder of dirt on Hillary Clinton.  But can he explain why Trump never used that information.  As judge Judy often says, “If it doesn’t make sense. it’s a lie.”  That’s my sentiment exactly.
