Guess What Russians The Clinton Foundation Invited to its Event?
I’m sure Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is all over this bit of evidence of Russian collusion, right?
As it turns out, The Clinton Foundation invited Vladimir Putin to one of its gatherings.
For those who were asking about Putin getting invited to Clinton Foundation event:
Yes, Putin was invited to Clinton Foundation galas while Hillary was serving as Sec of State. Here, via a @JudicialWatch FOIA, you can see his name on the invites list:https://t.co/QGGeHTY9LU pic.twitter.com/EEzlOwZZoN

This occurred just two months into Clinton’s term as secretary of state.
The Clinton Foundation’s Global Initiatives 2009 annual gathering was to include Russian leader Vladimir Putin, along with several other prominent heads of state, based on emails obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
The March 13, 2009 email from the Clinton Foundation showed that Putin and about 200 other world leaders were invited to attend a gathering. Many of these leaders are controversial in their own rights, as they curtailed the rights of women in their countries, or far worse. Regardless of their reputations, the Clintons needed these leaders in attendance in order to carve up the world. After all, in the mind of the Clintons and most Leftists, Hillary Clinton would be the next president of the United States.
Keep in mind the timing of this meeting as far as the Russians were concerned. The newly appointed secretary of state was attempting a “reset” with Moscow.
The email was sent from Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai to Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro and then forwarded to top Clinton aide Jake Sullivan. The message clearly showcases the conflict of interest between a non-profit foundation and the federal government that we now know occurred.
But now we know much more about the collusion between the Clintons and the Russians.
Here’s what we wrote of what happened in the aftermath of the CGI gathering, and how Bill Clinton lobbied to work with the Russians:
Bill Clinton’s meeting with Russia reminds me of the meeting on the tarmac with former AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. You know; the meeting where those two discussed golf and grandchildren.
The redacted documents proved that discussions about golf and grandchildren represent matters of national security. And now we have more obvious Russian collusion and pay-for-play, that the Left will conveniently overlook.
As the Huffington Post reports,
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.
I’m sure both Sullivan and Mills have immunity deals.
The article goes on to showcase the desperation The Clinton Foundation in getting this meeting set.
The approval question, however, sat inside State for nearly two weeks without an answer, prompting Desai to make multiple pleas for a decision.
“Dear Jake, we urgently need feedback on this. Thanks, Ami,” the former president’s aide wrote in early June.
Sullivan finally responded on June 7, 2010, asking a fellow State official “What’s the deal w this?”
The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.
I suspect Donald Trump has never invited the Russians to anything, nor has he lobbied to speak in Russia.
Simply put: all signs lead to the Clintons and the Obama administration when it comes to Russian collusion. And though many Americans feel like justice won’t be served, they are wrong. The Clintons and ultimately Barack Obama will go down for their dirty dealings.
