According to NBC News, Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors have started to ask FBI agents to hand over information on the infamous Uranium One deal that took place in 2010. President Barack Obama's administration allowed Russia's state atomic energy company Rosatom to purchase US uranium mining facilities. Evidence has surfaced that some of those involved donated millions to the Clinton Foundation. Who was secretary of state at the time? None other than failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

*UPDATE* After a seventh woman has come forward today and accused Franken of sexual misconduct, Gillibrand has finally called for him to resign. New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand is likely to run for president in 2020 so she's making an effort to align herself with the #metoo movement. At the same time, she's having some difficulty deciding who deserves the benefit of the doubt and who should be out of a job.

I can hardly keep up with the daily revelations of yet another liberal entertainment/media/political figure being exposed as an *alleged* sexual harasser and/or abuser. Not all the revelations have been about liberals (see, Roy Moore), but it seems that there is a liberal self-cleansing mechanism in progress when WaPo, the NY Times, and even Vox are turning on their own after years of looking the other way (or in the case of NBC, spiking the story).

Earlier this week, Professor Jacobson noted that Hillary Clinton still very much wants to be president and thinks she was robbed last November.  There is little doubt this is true.  However, between her ridiculous book What Happened and bizarre pretense that allegations against her husband for sexual indiscretion, including rape, never happened, she highlights, even doubles down on, some of the main problems of her failed presidential campaign.

In 2009, Kirsten Gillibrand was appointed to fill the Senate seat of Hillary Clinton, upon her confirmation as Secretary of State. Until yesterday, Gillibrand was happy to benefit from the massive Clinton fundraising and political machine. Despite the serious accusations of rape and sexual assault made by several women against Bill Clinton, and despite the affair Bill had with Monica Lewinsky, a young intern over whom Bill exercised supervisory power. And despite Hillary's role in attacking the women making the accusations.

The Hill has reported that FBI records from 2009 and 2010 show that people within the Kremlin attempted a campaign to move spies close to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Bill Clinton, and those close to them. This happened when Rosatom, a Russian nuclear company, wanted to purchase the Canadian company Uranium One, "which controlled 20 percent of America's strategic uranium reserves."

The hits keep coming against the Clintons as more information is revealed what happened during the controversial uranium deal with Russia while Hillary served as secretary of state. You know, the country that failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary claims she kept trying to warn us about. The Hill's latest report states that President Bill Clinton met with then-Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in 2010 after he sought permission to meet with a board director at Rosatom, Russia's nuclear energy firm, that wanted to receive "a majority stake in Canadian company Uranium One."

People who tell the truth don't need to remember which story to tell. Loretta Lynch apparently needed to remember which story to tell about her secret tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton, whose wife was under investigation for possible violations of national security laws relating to handling of classified information. Lynch was the only DOJ official present with Clinton. (Lynch's husband also apparently was on the plane, though it's unclear whether he participated in all of the conversation.) That meeting preceded by just a few days the FBI clearing Hillary Clinton.

Why wasn't Bill Clinton believed back in the 1990s? Could it have had anything to do with that time he looked into the camera, wagged his finger at the American people, and told them, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky?" Nope. That wasn't it. People didn't believe honest ol' Bill because of "polarization . . . just because of the party." That was the view expressed on CNN this morning by network commentator Errol Louis. His comment came during a discussion of President Trump's latest poll ratings on credibility.

Two conservative groups, Judicial Watch and the American Center for Law and Justice, have been doing the hard work the mainstream media refuses to do to investigate the infamous tarmac meeting between then Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the husband of a subject of FBI Investigation, Bill Clinton. The tarmac meeting was not initially disclosed by either Lynch or Clinton. Rather, the get together was discovered by a local news crew, as we previously reported on June 29, 2016, Gross appearance of impropriety in AG Lynch private meeting with Bill Clinton:

When former President Bill Clinton met with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch at an Arizona airport, the gross impropriety of the "tarmac summit" was immediately evident.  Clinton's wife and 2016 Democrat presidential hopeful was then under FBI investigation for her server and email scandals.  The impropriety was pooh-poohed away by a defensive AG, a disinterested media, a complicit FBI, and the corrupt Clinton clan. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has released 413 pages of memos obtained from the DOJ that show the "tarmac summit" was planned and that the media was working with the Obama-Lynch DOJ to downplay and bury the entire incident.

Today is the one-year anniversary of the meeting on an airplane on a tarmac in Phoenix between then Attorney General and Bill Clinton, the husband of the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton. Hillary was under investigation, at the time, by the FBI and Justice Department for her home email server used to handle official State Department business, including as we now know, classified information. The meeting was not announced. It was discovered. By a local news crew. Only then was the meeting officially disclosed. Lynch said they mostly discussed grandchildren.

Democratic Party loyalists may tell you they still believe Hillary should have won the election but she didn't and at this point, most people feel done with her. It's not just Hillary either, it's Bill and Chelsea as well. How else can you explain a piece like this in Vanity Fair?
Please, God. Stop Chelsea Clinton From Whatever She is Doing The last thing the left needs is the third iteration of a failed political dynasty. Amid investigations into Russian election interference, perhaps we ought to consider whether the Kremlin, to hurt Democrats, helped put Chelsea Clinton on the cover of Variety. Or maybe superstition explains it. Like tribesmen laying out a sacrifice to placate King Kong, news outlets continue to make offerings to the Clinton gods.

It's hard to rank Clinton scandals. Hillary's email scandal has been the focus for good reason -- it's been more accessible because the records at issue were public records even if hidden and destroyed by Hillary in good measure. The Washington Post reports tonight that the Huma-Weiner computer issue that led to FBI Director Comey's letter to Congress was discovered in early October. The sequence of events leading to Comey's letter was not as quick or haphazard as reported, but fairly methodical to the point that Comey felt word would leak out because prosecutors needed a search warrant:

The Wikileaks dump of John Podesta's emails have led to a treasure trove of information, but one memo caught many eyes because Bill Clinton's old advisor Doug Band wrote out ways the former president used the Clinton Foundation to build is personal wealth. He even referred the foundation as Bill Clinton Inc. Band, who also worked at Teneo Consulting, pushed out the memo after a fight between him and Chelsea Clinton, who said that Band others used her father and the foundation for their own profits.
