Defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is giving interviews left and right in order to promote her new book about the campaign, titled, “What Happened.”
In a recent interview with C-Span’s Book TV, Clinton was asked about the reports in the news that she had a hand in helping Russian nuclear energy company, Rosatom, purchase the Canadian Company, Uranium One, which gave the Russian company control of 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.
Clinton’s answer to the story: “It’s bologna.”
“I would say it’s the same bologna they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked,” Clinton declared.
“Trump and his allies, including Fox News, are really experts at distraction and diversion. So the closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians, as we heard Jeff Sessions finally admit to in his testimony the other day, the more they want to just throw mud on the wall. I’m their favorite target. Me and President Obama, we are the ones they like to put in the cross hairs,” she lamented.

Some investors in the Russian-backed company, Uranium One, reportedly had relationships with former President Bill Clinton and had donated to the Clinton Foundation.
The Daily Caller pointed out in a report Monday: “Leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have donated in excess of $25 million according to the Clinton Foundation’s website, built and eventually sold the Russians the aforementioned company that is today known as Uranium One.”
Frank Giustra, a major mining investor in Canada and owner of UrAsia, won a landmark uranium deal in Kazakhstan just days after visiting with Mr. Clinton. The two men boarded Mr. Giustra’s private jet to Kazakhstan where they met with the country’s autocratic president, Nursultan A. Nazarbayev. Mr. Clinton, in addition to helping Giustra, undermined American foreign policy by expressing his personal support for Nazarbayev’s desire to head an international elections monitory group, reports The New York Times.
