    The big news from the US this week is that the FBI have uncovered an absolutely huge Russian bribery plot touching the very highest echelons of American government. But you may not be aware of it because those eagle eyed hawks at the overseas desks of the BBC and Guardian haven't deemed it newsworthy enough to bring it to your attention.

    Could that possibly be because it involves the Clintons and Obama, not Trump?

    If it is TL.DR I'll give you the one minute summary. A Putin crony Sergei Kiryenko routed millions of dollars into the Clinton Charitable Foundation in return for 20% of the uranium reserves of the United States, at a time when Hilary was in a position to influence the decision.

    I love how the only thing that gets you happy is the idea that Trump may not be involved in a scandal. Just shows how desperate you little trumptards have gotten.

    Anyways, different sources are reporting different things. The only consistent storyline is that Obama turned a blind eye to it which he's done with many incidences involving Russia (who wants war?).

    And btw, that TL;DR is incredibly misleading. Get the facts straight. Be honest.

    Also funny how suddenly trump supporters are hailing the FBI for their work and yet ignore the evidence that Trump's team colluded with Russia.

    you people are mindless hypocrites.

    Hardly. The FBI has taken six years, SIX YEARS, to investigate the uranium deal to this juncture. The incompetence (or worse) was stunning, and it meant that Hillary became too far advanced on her path for the Democratic nomination for it to be politically feasible to stop her.

    Hence all the ensuing problems for the democratic process having a corrupt politician like her running for the highest office.

    Don't you guys get it? This proves that Trump was right all along. Hillary is a total crook, just like he said in the live debate.

    Thank God she didn't get elected. Imagine the size of the Clinton Foundation if she had (now wound down of course because no dictator, or crony of a dictator is going to plough money into it when she has nothing to give in return).

    If Hillary is a crook then by the same logic where we put the FBI up to the top level then Trump is a crook too. And we all knew she was a crook. It's just a matter of which crook we'd rather have. Trump isnt particularly special nor intelligent for pointing out that. Im curious, why isnt she in jail yet like he promised? Oh yeah, because she's not done anything illegal. If the president cant do it then that says a lot.

    As of now there's no evidence that Hillary even accepted the bribes nor did her foundation accept it. Stop making silly claims when you protect Trump as well.

    And no, it's not incompetence it's bureaucracy. That's how this sort of stuff works.

    Fake news
    This story exemplifies that the liberal MSM in the US is totally fake news. The biggest story in years (if it had come out during the election it would have been dynamite) and they blatantly don't cover it. It is almost as if they think everyone is stupid. Or that the internet hasn't opened up other sources for the truth to come out so they don't have the power to control the news agenda they once had.

    If any Trump associate even sniffs at a glass of Russian vodka it is leaked to the press and splashed all over the New York Times, the WashPo or CNN within minutes.

    Nine months of investigation with the media and intelligence agencies poring all over it and they have uncovered nothing to incriminate him. Nothing.

    Fake News indeed.

    To be fair I did see a story there, followed up by BBC Fake News that the Clinton Foundation was returning all that dirty money donated to it by the sex beast, Harvey Weinstein.

    Oh no, my mistake! That didn't happen. Instead the MSM defended the non return on the grounds that it went on "good causes."

    But in 2013 they took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges whilst spending $9 million on direct aid,

    It's a bit like when you go to the supermarket and spend £140 on groceries, and put your change in the poor box at the side of the till. :rolleyes:

      It isn't like that at all though, since one buys groceries out of necessity.

      First Class flights all over the globe are a "necessity" surely ($70 million spent on "travel" by the Clinton Foundation).

      And what about the cost of Chelsea's wedding? (Wilileaks email conversation with aide reveals that was paid by the Foundation).

      Have you never seen "Say Yes to the Dress!"?
