Best Selling Author: "Only Person Who Got Money Directly From Russia... Was Hillary"
They often say that those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
Whoever “they” are, Hillary Clinton’s most ardent supporters must not have met them.
While far-left hysteria has manifested in the fruitless but drawn-out Mueller investigation, the cries that Trump engaged in some shady collusion activities with Russia to help him win the 2016 election have not ceased.
If anything — and this might just be me — it seems the far-left is screaming about Russian collusion louder and louder as Mueller’s investigation continues to not yield anything concrete pinning Trump.
But perhaps the far-left might want to use their indoor voices regarding Russian collusion.
Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president, went on Fox News and dropped a scathing bit of rhetoric that Clinton supporters will not want to hear.

Judicial Watch, currently embroiled in a lawsuit to uncover critical documents regarding embattled former CIA director John Brennan, is “a conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, (promoting) transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.”
Fitton, who is also author of NY Times best selling book “Cleaning House: Exposing Our Government’s Secrets and Lies,” is the president of Judicial Watch, and as such, is privy to documents that most normal people would never see.
And according to what Fitton has seen, there was only one 2016 presidential nominee that had dealings with Russia and it wasn’t the Republican one.
“The only person who got money directly from Russia as far as I could tell running for office in 2016 was Hillary Clinton,” Fitton said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Fitton went on to describe the wide web of alleged corruption and conflict linking the Clinton camp and Russia.
“Her husband (Bill Clinton) made a speech in Russia for $500,000 to a firm that was a front for the Russians and (A now-Russian and Canadian run uranium mining company) Uranium One. They reportedly received millions as part of an effort to get a good result on that Uranium One decision,” Fitton described.
Those are some alarming numbers. If true, the clandestine dealings between the Clinton camp and the Russians are clearly mutually beneficial. The Russians get uranium and the Clintons get gobs of money.
That sounds a lot more damning than a presidential candidate using whatever means possible to find some political dirt on their opponent.
Fitton and Fox News host Maria Bartiromo went on to describe the rampant conflict of interest in the Clinton investigations. It’s been bad enough where at least five prominent members of the intelligence community have come under fire for potentially showing favor to Clinton over Trump.
Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and Bruce Ohr have all been fired, demoted or put under investigation. That’s a major problem for what should be impartial and just members of the Department of Justice and the FBI.
That’s five major cases of favoritism which some might also describe as collusion. And there’s hard evidence to back up those claims considering their respective fates.
Trump may have colluded with Russians. The same way Bigfoot may be real.
But for now, the concrete evidence is all pointing to one camp that is rife with conflict of interest and shady dealings. And it’s not Trump’s.
