Talk about spin. Two CNN fact checkers failed miserably at lying for Hillary Clinton yet again. Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel claimed there was no hard evidence that Clinton had approved the transfer of 20% of the US’ uranium to the Russians and that $145 million was funneled to the Clinton Foundation in a fact check of a Trump speech where he brought it up. In a 4,000-word front page story written over a year ago, the New York Times’ Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jo Becker and Mike McIntire verified the Clinton Cash uranium revelation in stunning detail, including charts and graphs laying out the flow of millions of dollars from the nine investors in the uranium deal who flowed $145 million to Hillary’s family foundation. I may not care for Trump, but he was certainly right on that point.
CNN Money’s “fact-checkers” Cristina Alesci and Laurie Frankel ended up with egg on their faces on Wednesday after they rated as “false” a well-established and proven Clinton Cash fact involving Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. approving the transfer of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to the Russian government, as nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Under the guise of “fact-checking” Donald Trump’s Wednesday speech, Alesci and Frankel purported to verify whether “Clinton’s State Department approved the transfer of 20% of America’s uranium holdings to Russia while nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.”
Alesci (pictured, right) and Frankel (left) rate the claim as “false” and allege “there’s no hard evidence of a quid pro quo.” The CNN Money “reporters” also conceded that “CNN several times has asked the Clinton Foundation to confirm whether the nine investors who benefited from the deal also contributed to the foundation, but the foundation has yet to respond.”
The so-called CNN Money “fact-checkers” correctly noted that “the State Department was one of several agencies that needed to sign off on the transaction. But they reverted to media bias spin and pushed false propaganda specifically to protect the severely damaged character of Hillary Clinton. The Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) has nine members, one of which is the State Dept. Breitbart asks correctly why Alesci and Frankel didn’t think to ask which of the eight other agency heads who needed to approve the deal were receiving $145 million to their family’s charity at the time of such a pivotal decision? And did Hillary Clinton’s State Department report the glaring conflict of interest before granting its approval of handing over 20% of American uranium to Putin’s Russia? Why didn’t Hillary Clinton recuse her agency from voting, knowing that her charity was receiving $145 million from nine investors in the deal? I’d like to know about the Russians paying Bill Clinton $500,000 for a crappy speech as well. The Clinton Foundation also received $2.35 million in hidden, undisclosed donations from Ian Telfer, the former head of the Russian government’s uranium company — another fact that multiple liberal news outlets have confirmed. But CNN’s lackeys couldn’t be bothered to check anything out, or maybe they just lied because it’s Hillary. Disgusting.
