John Solomon, writing for THE HILL, just keeps ‘em coming. The guy is on fire these days --- probably in possession of much more than he is telling right now so that each revelation can have its moment --- and with a new attorney general coming in and Lindsay Graham heading the Senate Judiciary Committee, we can at least hope the information won’t be left to die like an unwanted newborn in a New York delivery room.

The latest installment makes the case that it was Hillary Clinton who made use of Russian connections, through the Clinton Foundation and big-time donor Russian oligarch (rich guy) Viktor Vekselberg, along with several American donors who wanted to partner with him, while she was Secretary of State. At the exact time Bill was pocketing a cool half-million dollars to give just one speech in Moscow, Hillary was working on that Russian re-boot (never mind that her “reset” button actually said “overcharge” in Russian), teaming with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and then-President Dmitri Medvedev to create U.S. technology partnerships in Skolkovo, which was headed by Vekselberg and which Solomon describes as “Moscow’s version of Silicon Valley.”

Hillary personally invited President Medvedev to visit Silicon Valley, and her State Department facilitated U.S. companies involved in the project. According to State Department emails, Bill raised eyebrows (as he often did with his conflicts of interest) by asking to meet Vekselberg and also Arkady Dvorkovich, a senior official with Rosatom. Rosatom is the Russian nuclear giant that was seeking permission from the State Department to buy the Canadian company Uranium One --- the "One" that came with 20 percent of America’s uranium.

By 2013, experts in the State Department, law enforcement and the military were considering Skolkovo to be much more than just a technology conglomerate. They thought it was likely a front for economic and military espionage. In 2014, the FBI sent letters to warn several American technology companies that were involved with Skolkovo that they risked being caught up in espionage. One FBI official, Special Agent in Charge Lucia Ziobro, even raised the alarm in an op-ed for the Boston Business Journal that Skolkovo “may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research development technologies and dual-use technologies with military and commercial application.” In other words, it would be a convenient way to spy.

(I’ll bet they had every one of Hillary’s emails from her time at State. But I digress.)

As for Rosatom, we already knew about informant William Douglas Campbell, who gathered information from the inside showing their agents in the U.S. were involved in racketeering: kickbacks, extortion, bribery. He even obtained written evidence that Putin wanted to buy Rosatom to gain leverage over America through domination of global uranium markets. He also found out that a major donor to the Clinton Global Initiative was working for Rosatom at the time the company was seeking approval from the State Department to buy Uranium One.

Of course, we've been aware for some time about other Russian connections, the ones made by Hillary, through a series of go-betweens, with Christopher Steele and his Russian sources. The latest bit of information on that is that, according to Bruce Ohr’s notes, Steele’s main source for his uncorroborated allegations was an ex-Russian intelligence officer. I won’t get too far into the weeds with this; for those who want to go on in there, Solomon offers much more detail about the Russian connections of Steele, and also of Glenn Simpson, at the link below.

Hillary, her family and their charity clearly benefited from their Russian connections at the very time Hillary was working to facilitate certain official government actions concerning Russia. And now we know that these connections were questionable enough to raise national security concerns. Can you even IMAGINE how much screaming there would be if we were talking about the Trump family?

The investigation of Trump never ends –- in fact, it keeps expanding, like a shark that will die if it ever stops swimming –- while the increasingly evident Hillary/Russia connections are ignored. But I have a hunch that with Barr coming in as the new attorney general and Sen. Graham heading the Judiciary Committee, this situation is going to change. If that doesn't happen, we may have to storm Washington with torches, tar and feathers.  But I'm fairly confident that even though Hillary might run out the clock on the statute of limitations for many of her misdeeds, the sleazy details are eventually going to come out.

The case for Russia collusion … against the Democrats

    I agree with your article about the crooked Clintons 100%. But I am very skeptical that anything will come of their corruption, lies and treason, just like the Obama's, phony as can be, but thus far have gotten away with it, like so many others. The Democrats will do anything and everything to protect the Clintons, just like the mainstream media. The Democrats in no way want any investigations or pursuits against the Clintons or any other Democrats involved in the deep state swamp, because they wouldn't want the Americans who are blind or ignore this deep state swamp to know any facts before the 2020 elections. The Clintons are on the top of a long list of people where no justice is being pursued as of yet. Lets hope there are a few Republican that have enough backbone to put the pursuits in motion, but I remain skeptical, because the evidence has been there for too many years, yet nothing done. Lots and lots of talk, but no action.

    Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for fraud, spying, sedition, bribery, extortion and grand larceny.

    It is my understanding that those coming to court must do so with “clean hands”. Knowing that the Steele Dossier was loaded with fabricated information, and it was paid for by Clinton - which was NOT disclosed to the FISA Court judge, it would seem that the whole Mueller investigation should have been shut down long ago - DoJ came to the court with “dirty hands”!

    Gov. Huckabee, I have always been a fan of yours, and have enjoyed your writing. I love how candid you are, and I admire and respect your opinions
    When it comes to the Clintons, I’m sure you know more about them than many. As far as I’m concerned, the Clintons are the most corrupt and despicable people I’ve ever seen in our government. Obama’s are a close second.
    Please keep up your great writing!

    I sure hope you are right on Barr. I want to believe that he will do the right thing, but after the Sessions debacle I think a lot of us have become skeptics, and a bit defeated. I am very happy with Graham and feel that he is back on track now that McCain is gone. I just pray (really) that we aren't getting snookered again in the AG department. ????

    Someone at Justice should read this. It's so flagrant, so over-the-top that even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could figure it out.

    I have a deep suspicion that the untraceable $1.7 billion did not go to Iran but instead was used to pay off informants and pay off whatever country hacked Clinton emails. Might even be used to help the caravans of people to organize to come here.

    How do simple Americans stop these malicious investigations and turn on those truly needed to accomplish justice? I vote and only wish there were more. . .

    Sure hope your confidence in Barr works out. I hope he isn't another Mueller. Thought to be upstanding only to find out, he isn't.

    There is so much evidence to go after these traitors. Pray to God it comes to conviction. With Barr coming in can we have hope?

    Bill and Hillary Clinton have been criminals since he was govener. She committed crimes with her privet server email situation. Bengazi she's responsible for four Americans deaths. She is in collusion with Russia for numerous reasons. Her foundation is crooked. I cannot believe she and her husband are not behind bars our government has evidence against the Clintons but won't do anything about it. I also think Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shummer, Schiff , and so many others should be fired, impeached what ever it takes to remove them from office. They along with the fake news are all a bunch of evil crazy liers.

    Great Commentary! The one thing that you pointed out with regard to the Statute of Limitations, is the one thing most people watching this, the nation, wondering if there will ever be a true show that the Laws are not Two tiers, one for the rich and one for the rest of us. For some it maybe enough to just know that what has happened was really Clinton ,DNC, Russian Cullusion! But without payment for those crimes and for what they orchestrated, it will mean nothing. No Punishment, just reinforces the idea that all that has happened, all laws broken and lives ruined, can be done again, because the chances of having to actually pay the piper are almost zero. On top of all this, what Hillary and others have done, not only to President Trump, but to the Country and is nothing short of Treason. In fact, there have been many examples of Treason over this stretch of time, that unless we bring these people to justice, others will think they can also get away with skinning the line! The Laws of Our Country, must be upheld, enforced, or the double standard, particularly in the Political realm, will grow by leaps and bounds!

    Before the Clinton’s, I naively believed that our govt was only one honest and above board. How dumb I feel now! Mea culpa.

    The question is....will anything actually be done about this collusion? We have known for quite some time that Hilary and Bill were dirty as the day and night are long. but seems they just keep skating by with no repurcussions. Why? I just hope this time there are consequences to their bad behavior and illegal activity. They put our country in jeapordy when they hooked up with Russia.

    Mr Huckabee, I always read your articles and find them very informative. My question: WHY IS NOTHING EVER DONE ABOUT THESE CROOKS? All I ever hear is "Blah Blah Blah Blah!" But seemingly NOTHING is ever done to punish the crooks! I am a 75 year old Conservative Republican and I am slowly getting fed up with BOTH parties all talk no action!! I could write a article about how many people I know that feel the same way.

    Well, surprise, surprise Governor........ NO!
    Hopefully ALL the crimes Hillary has committed will come out for all to see and all those around her including Obama. The statue of limitations should not even apply in the case of her crimes and any and all of those involved ............ these crimes during the Obama administration are crimes against our country and there can’t be a limit on those who committed these crimes!

  • Lynn Taylor

    I’m not surprised, but rather, grateful that Hillary Clinton did not get elected! If and when these facts come out into the light, will not matter; the collusion and corruption must come out and every American must be made aware. I don’t care anymore about the “clock running out” for her to be prosecuted; I definitely want all Americans to know, without a doubt, how we have all been saved. Then, it is my belief, the Clintons and ALL involved them regarding corruption and deceit thus dismantling Our Great Nation will suffer as traitors in the public’s opinion. They will be disgraced. And I have to believe that ALL would have to feel some shame and remorse. How could they not? Our country has been saved and God is using our President Trump as his instrument of grace. To His Glory!

    The crooked Dems are purposely avoiding investigations into Hillary so the time runs out. Infuriating!!! Very disheartening to learn how corrupt the DOJ and FBI and DC are. I need you DVD for my granddaughters

    How does “what we know now “ not raise attention in government. Clinton power machine has been greatly feared knowing the knell bell tones for thee who know too much. How big is the reach of foundation now called global. What are the driving forces and true intent conceived in Arkansas or perhaps Harvard Square. Lots of pomp and puffery accompanies a daily drive forward inside the giant wooden horse that rolls over everything in its path and beyond in full view of the whole world. Silicone, uranium, dollars. How does one even get hands on 20% of our country’s uranium and move it to Russia. When is treason treasonous. “I was asleep at my basement computer and couldn’t hear the phone ring calling from Benghazi.” Mob rule. Mob insanity. So loud it is silent and slippery like silicon. We weep for those who lay mute in their coffins and hope not to be on the list.

    Thank you for working so hard for Americans that believe in God, in hard work, loyalty to our country and raising our families to be strong and beautiful, respecting the American values we cherish.
