Lock her up!

A New York Times article says that a new Clinton investigation would “shatter longstanding norms,” but norms have already been shattered by this Mueller investigation. When has a president already been under investigation as soon as he took office for an alleged crime for which there is only the barest thread of any evidence? On the other hand, getting indictments against the Clintons and their cronies for the Uranium One deal ought to be a slam dunk. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Fight fire with fire. Go for it.

  1. ‘Longstanding norms’ means the Deep State protecting its own at all cost. Means not wanting to end up dead in a park somewhere. I hope he’s got a good security detail.

  2. The problem with the Uranium One deal is that Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with the approval.

    The deal had to be approved by nine government departments including the Defense Department, Homeland security and Justice Department. If there were going to be objections raised on national security grounds, it was Defense, Homeland Security or Justice that should have raised them, not the State Department.

    The State Departments role in the review of the Uranium One deal was handled by some lower level officials who say they never spoke to Hillary Clinton and never received any direction from Hillary Clinton,

    • The issue is whether she was bribed, not whether the bribe was all that effective.

      Did Clinton and cronies knowingly take money from Russians, knowing that the Russians expected the Uranium One deal in return?

      Also, to say that the Clintons had no influence over the government bureaucracy is willful ignorance.

      • The best you can probably come up with is Bill Clinton’s $500,000 speaking fee for a June 29, 2010 speech at a conference in Moscow organized by Renaissance Capital. The Rosatom-Uranium One merger was announced earlier that month. Renaissance Capital has ties to the Kremlin and recommended Rosatom stock in July 2010. The Rosatom-Uranium One merger was not approved by the US until October/November 2010.

        You can spin this as a bribe to the Clintons, but it really doesn’t make much sense. The arrangement for Clinton to speak must have been made long before Rosatom-Uranium One merger was announced. Hillary Clinton had only a minor role in approving this merger. The State Department would not be the agency to object.

        Given the US Supreme court ruling on bribery, it is now almost impossible to get a conviction in a bribery case.

      • Well lets have a team of 16 lawyers and 40 agents investigate it for a year. I am sure they will come up with something.

      • That there was a lot of pay-for-play going on with the Clintons is demonstrated by the fact that the Clinton Foundation up and died just as soon as Hillary didn’t become president. You’d think they would suddenly have so much more time for charity work.

      • “That there was a lot of pay-for-play going on with the Clintons is demonstrated by the fact that the Clinton Foundation up and died just as soon as Hillary didn’t become president.”

        It was certainly pay of access, but that is perfectly legal under current US law. There is no evidence that anyone got any favors for their donations.

      Hilarious you want us to believe those departments were “independent” of Clinton’s State Department.

      Clinton was the second most powerful Democrat in the nation for the entire Obama administration.

      Her word alone was, in practice, sufficient to make all of those agencies either approve or reject Uranium One.

      • “Hilarious you want us to believe those departments were “independent” of Clinton’s State Department.”

        I think the Defense Department would be laugh in your face if you suggested they took orders from the State Department. The other agencies would too.

        “Clinton was the second most powerful Democrat in the nation for the entire Obama administration.”

        I think Vice President Biden, House Speak Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid might have disagree with you in 2010.

      • OK, so she was among the top five most powerful Democrats. Possibly more powerful than Biden, Pelosi and Reid, the latter two being not part of the executive branch and Biden being some guy who was brought on to appeal to prole white voters and not because Obama wanted to give him a lot of power.

        Constitutionally, the VP has no power except to resolve tie votes in the Senate.

        Mostly, Biden attended funerals that Obama himself didn’t want to attend, like those for Justice Scalia and Nancy Reagan.

      • The best argument people have made against investigating Hillary on Uranium One is that, really, we should investigate the entirety of the Obama administration for that deal.

      • Seems everyone has overlooked the FBI insider who’s about to testify as to the Russian role in perverting and paying off half of Washington in pursuance of this deal (as well as various other attempts to exert influence over and manipulate Clinton and others).

        What, you think that’s just chopped liver? There’s a whole shitstorm coming which is going to be supported by a mountain of evidence. The Clinton’s thought they were untouchable, but they did not reckon on the possibility that this ridiculous Russia, Russia, Russia BS was going to boomerang on them.

        Better they had just kept their fool mouths shut and accepted their loss. But no, in their haste to tar Trump, they overlooked their own vulnerability.

        And even discounting Uranium One, the use of the “dirty dossier” to spy on, and unmask members of the opposition in a US election is THE biggest story of them all, and makes U1 look like just a tawdry little pay for play. Do not underestimate Devin Nunes.

      • I think the Defense Department would be laugh in your face if you suggested they took orders from the State Department.

        No harder than it was for Clinton to get the FBI to lie (by omission) to the Congress by not mentioning there was an ongoing FBI bribery probe into Uranium One.

        Hillary Clinton was the presumed heir to Obama and everyone in the administration knew it.

        To defy her meant expulsion from DC politics with the blessing of the entire Progressive establishment.

        I think Vice President Biden, House Speak Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid might have disagree with you in 2010.

        Biden was decoration.

        Pelosi and Reid might have been, but even that is questionable. Remember, everyone thought Hillary would be President by 2017.

        She inspired much greater fear than any normal Secretary of State.

        You need to get out of your conspiracy hole

        It’s not a conspiracy.

        The Russians paid the Clinton Foundation over $100 million before Uranium One went through.

        What reason do you think the Russians would pay that kind of money for? To help the Clinton Foundation feed starving war orphans in Africa?

        That’s why I think that more sex scandals from Hollywood are coming. They are a marvelous distraction from the true turmoil, which is in The Swamp.

    • Just yesterday, the WSJ reported that the DOD was using Hikvision Chinese security cameras at US military installations despite security warnings. I don’t understand why you would blindly trust in the infinite wisdom of the DOD when you can simply follow the money and see that millions of dollars were given to the Clinton Foundation by people related to the Uranium One deal. In fact, can you suggest any good reason for donating money to the Clinton Foundation except as a way to buy influence in government decisions?

    Its a shame that there isnt someone competent controlling Trump because he could be making so much hay ff of these MSM misfires with the right strategic moves. They are just giving him wide open shots but instead of taking them he usually stirs up losing issues for himself- like the funerals.

    Since Alies is dead, I wish Rove would parachute in and take the reigns.

  4. Despising the Clintons has been a longstanding enterprise in DC. These dime-a-dozen rumor-articles are nothing more than infotainment, a means for conservative media to foment the base. Nothing ever happens. They’re still here.

  5. Also, if Moore should be expelled from the Senate shouldn’t there be an equal demand for Bob Menendez to be expelled since he was allegedly enjoying teenage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

    • More than that, Moore was just dating teens in his youth with the aim of finding one to marry and start a family with and he treated them all like a gentleman. Menedez is a married man, with children of his own, who was fucking teenagers for carnal pleasure. There is really no comparison between to the two charges and it is absolutely outrageous than anybody could be calling for the expulsion or Moore but not calling for the same with regards to Menendez.

        It seemed like that’s how Moore thought of himself, until woman #5, who I don’t know that I should believe what with toxic man-hating Gloria Allred representing her.

        Of course.

        That’s speculation.

        Moore could have been just looking for a pump and dump.

        But whatever his reasons were for trolling teenage girls back in the 70s and 80s, IF Moore is expelled from the Senate Bob Menendez should ALSO be expelled right along with him.

  7. The sad thing is that no matter what the investigation finds, Hillary with a candlestick in the drawing room, it won’t matter because she’s never going to be indicted for anything. Any Grand Jury convened in Washington DC will refuse to indict her regardless of evidence, so you’ll just have a record of criminal activity, like with the email situation, but nothing will ever come from it and she and her supporters will take the lack of indictment as proof of innocence.
