The Clintons have survived everything from the shady Whitewater land deal to formal impeachment charges.
But could a secretly recorded conversation be what finally brings them down?
In an appearance this week on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of the tell-all book Clinton Cash, made a bombshell admission.
An audio recording exists of Russian officials talking about bribing the Clintons to ensure a controversial uranium deal was approved.
And the FBI may already have the recording in its possession.
“We now have this whistle-blower that has come forward who reportedly has audio recordings of Russian officials talking about using bribery to get favors from the Clintons, giving donations to the Clinton Foundation,” Schweizer said.
At the heart of the issue is a controversial 2010 sale of U.S. uranium interests to a Russian-backed firm. The so-called Uranium One deal was approved by a committee that included then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, even though the Russian firm was under investigation by the FBI for corruption.
Allegations have since surfaced that the Clinton Foundation received a fortune in donations from Russian nuclear interests at the time the deal was being considered.
Does a group of Russians talking about bribing the Clintons mean that the Clintons broke any laws?
Not necessarily. But money did subsequently change hands – and there’s enough evidence to arouse some serious suspicion.
“The third part of this ingredient is we have the actual flow of money,” Schweizer said. “Tens of millions of dollars to the Clintons as this deal is going down.”
And based on the information revealed by Schweizer, the FBI may already be in possession of this potentially incriminating recording.
The whistleblower who reportedly has the recording is an American businessman who has been working with the Department of Justice for years.
Through his attorney, the whistleblower claimed last month that he wanted to come forward and expose the corruption behind the Uranium One deal. But the Obama-era Department of Justice allegedly threatened to throw him in prison for violating a non-disclosure agreement.
But the Justice Department, under President Donald Trump, has since rescinded these threats. So there’s a good chance that this secret-recording may soon see the light of day.
And Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced this week that he had given federal prosecutors the go-ahead to investigate the Uranium One deal and the Clinton Foundation’s potential involvement.
Could this secret recording finally lead to the end of the Clinton Crime Cartel? It’s too soon to say – but it looks like a very important piece of the puzzle.
