Why doesn't Fake News talk about Podesta ties to Russia as covered by @FoxNews or money from Russia to Clinton – sale of Uranium?

Sure, receiving millions of dollars in bribe money to transfer weapons grade uranium to a competing super power sounds pretty bad.
But what about grabbing pussies, though?
Or saying that it would be nice to avoid having a world war against said super power?
Isn’t that worse, somehow?
Let’s keep our focus on the real issues, here.
Tens of millions of dollars from uranium investors flowed into the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton received a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian bank tied to the Kremlin before Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped decide whether to approve the sale to the Russian government of a company that held one-fifth of America’s uranium capacity.
That’s the “deal” that Donald Trump referenced in a tweet Tuesday morning in which he essentially said that if Congress really wants to find evidence of U.S. politicians colluding with the Russians, it should investigate the $145 million in donations the Clintons’ received from uranium investors before Russia’s energy agency Rostatom secured the purchase of Uranium One.
This is how politics is usually done these days. It’s how the system operates in democracy.
What makes this unusual is that we have the president bringing it up to the surface. Politicians are usually all part of the same corrupt establishment, and thus know better than to rock the boat, even to attack their rivals.
I have a feeling Trump hasn’t quite forgotten about his promise to “lock her up.” He’s just slowly placing his pieces on the chess board to ensure success.
Soon, my friends… Soon.
Former Uranium One chairman Ian Telfer was among several individuals connected to the deal who made donations to the Clinton Foundation. Telfer made four foreign donations totaling $2.35 million, the Times reported.
The donations flowed as the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013. Snopes and other “fact checkers” who insist there was no quid pro quo have argued that most of the donations were made in 2008, before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state. But she was running for president at that time.
In June 2010, shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Bill Clinton personally received a speaking fee of $500,000 from a Kremlin-tied Russian investment bank connected to the uranium deal.
I wonder how all this would fare with the jury in a fair trial?
Hopefully, we’ll know the answer to that question before the end of Trump’s term.
