The world is suddenly like Alice’s Wonderland as the FBI-Uranium One-Russian dossier-Trump collusion scandal continues to unfold.
The one thing that is quickly becoming clear is this: the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign is a nothing burger.
And whatever attempted collusion there was also necessarily implicates Hillary. It’s a weird Catch-22 she likely didn’t bargain for.
Let’s break it down like a fraction. According to evidence currently being produced by the Mueller investigation, Trump advisor Paul Manafort was liaising with the Russians on business deals.
But he was working with the Podesta Group, the principal of which also served as Hillary’s campaign advisor and chief of her PAC.
Meanwhile, it was Robert Mueller’s FBI which turned a blind eye to the obvious bribery from the Russians in exchange for Hillary’s rubber stamping of the Uranium One purchase.
And these negotiations were almost surely the subject of the dealings with the Podesta Group, which the Obama administration attempted to cover up by threatening the FBI informant who had evidence for everything.
And now former FBI Director Mueller is investigating the thing his protege refused to investigate while it was going down right under the nose.
That about sums it up.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Bravo, Charles Grassley! The Iowa senator has turned into something of an aging Mr. Smith taking on corruption in the Obama administration (and its Justice Department) and calling for a special investigator for the metastasizing Uranium One Scandal. But is it enough?
As has been reported, this 2010 deal was made despite a hitherto unknown FBI investigation that exposed bribery, kickbacks, etc. on the part of the Russian company involved. The pact resulted in 20% of U.S. uranium in Putin’s hands (some of whic, in lethal yellow cake form, has already disappeared into the ether) and millions of dollars in the Clinton Foundation’s coffers, basically at the same time.
Or should we now call this the Podesta, Podesta & Manafort Scandal, because an ongoing and related report on Tucker Carlson’s cable show is unmasking a series of connections that make the most paranoid conspiracy theorist seem rational?
A thus-far-reliable source who used to be involved with Clinton allies John and Tony Podesta told Tucker Carlson that press reports appearing to implicate President Trump in Russian collusion are exaggerated.
The source, who Carlson said he would not yet name, said he worked for the brothers’ Podesta Group and was privy to some information from Robert Mueller’s special investigation.
While media reports describe former “Black, Manafort & Stone” principal Paul Manafort as Trump’s main tie to the investigation, the source said it is Manafort’s role as a liaison between Russia and the Podesta Group that is drawing the scrutiny….
Manafort was, at the time, representing Russian business and political interests during the Obama era.
The source said the Podesta Group was in regular contact with Manafort while Hillary Clinton was America’s chief diplomat….
According to Carlson, “Manafort was clear that Russia wanted to cultivate ties to Hillary” because she appeared to be the presumptive 45th president.
In other words, as the French say, it’s the world upside down. Russia? Trump? Oh, sorry, no, it’s the Brothers Podesta and, through them, Hillary.
