While digging around for my earlier report on 186 Shore Road when it was new, I came upon this story from 2009, about Bill Clinton, foreign bribery and a “donation” of $31.3 million to the Clinton Foundation. 

Part of it read:

Late on Sept. 6, 2005, a private plane carrying the Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra touched down in Almaty, a ruggedly picturesque city in southeast Kazakhstan. Several hundred miles to the west a fortune awaited: highly coveted deposits of uranium that could fuel nuclear reactors around the world. And Mr. Giustra was in hot pursuit of an exclusive deal to tap them.

Unlike more established competitors, Mr. Giustra was a newcomer to uranium mining in Kazakhstan, a former Soviet republic. But what his fledgling company lacked in experience, it made up for in connections.Accompanying Mr. Giustra on his luxuriously appointed MD-87 jet that day was a former president of the United States, Bill Clinton….

Within two days, corporate records show that Mr. Giustra also came up a winner when his company signed preliminary agreements giving it the right to buy into three uranium projects controlled by Kazakhstan’s state-owned uranium agency, Kazatomprom.

The monster deal stunned the mining industry, turning an unknown shell company into one of the world’s largest uranium producers in a transaction ultimately worth tens of millions of dollars to Mr. Giustra, analysts said.

Just months after the Kazakh pact was finalized, Mr. Clinton’s charitable foundation received its own windfall: a $31.3 million donation from Mr. Giustra that had remained a secret until he acknowledged it last month.

Read the whole thing – secret meetings in Chappaqua that were denied until they were exposed, then “remembered”, Hillary using her influence as a senator, cover ups, denials, bribery; the whole, typical Clinton method of operation. And they’re still at it.

    o/t but is anyone else watching the Jeopardy Teen Tourney this week? I am so impressed with each and every one of these kids; I look back at my own failed learning opportunities as a teen and groan.Oh to take the Time Machine back and actually pay attention in class. Doink!

    They are so much better at this game than any republican. Of course it helps that something like 89% of the media voted for her party year after year, so no one is really watching.

    The electorate cannot follow this or understand things like this and it would make their head hurt to even try to think about it. Hence, our election results…

    You know what happened to the Kazak director who exposed slick Willie regarding the Chappaqua meeting?
