“President Trump accused the ‘Fake Media’ on Thursday of ignoring new details about the 2010 approval of a controversial uranium deal with a Russian company, amid scrutiny of potential ‘conflicts of interest’ for Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration,” Fox News reports.
Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn’t want to follow!

The alleged “conflicts of interest” refers to the FBI investigation, with more details being made public just this week, surrounding Russia’s illegally bribery of an American uranium trucking company as the Obama Administration was in the process of approving a deal that gave Russia control of about 20% of U.S. uranium supply. None of this information was made known to Congress or the American public prior to the deal’s approval.
During this time Russian nuclear officials also gave millions to the Clinton Foundation and hundreds of thousands to former President Bill Clinton for speeches, all the while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was leading the Committee on Foreign Investment.
Per The Hill, the Senate Judiciary Committee is currently seeking to interview the informant who assisted the FBI in its investigation, with its chairman, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, vowing “get to the bottom of this issue.”
