The Canadian company that Russia bought shares in supplies 20 percent of our uranium. That's the basis of the lie that Hillary "sold Russia?

...20 percent of our uranium." Could they get the truth more wrong if they tried?

Update:

Of course none of this uranium is the kind you can change to weapons grade, and Russia can't even move the uranium back to Russia.

Update 2:

She did it while smoking a big cigar with her feet up on the desk laughing maniacally naturally.

Update 3:

Lol those donations were made after he no longer worked for the company and had sold all his shares years before. And the Clinton Foundation used the money for charity you half wit, it doesn't go to the Clintons they don't even take a salary.

Update 4:

I love how conservatives keep walking their initial absurd claims further back until they reach something nearly the truth, but still twisted and garbled beyond recognition.

    She was not even in charge of the sale.

    URANEUM WAS NOT SOLD TO RUSSIA

    Trump repeated his misleading claim that Hillary Clinton “gave” Russia one-fifth of all U.S. uranium.

    Trump: You know, they say I’m close to Russia. Hillary Clinton gave away 20 percent of the uranium in the United States. She’s close to Russia.

    He’s wrong on several counts. The deal Clinton had a role in approving gave Russia ownership of 20 percent of U.S. production capacity — not existing stocks of uranium. Furthermore, Clinton alone could not have stopped the deal; only the president could have done that with a finding that national security would be endangered. Lastly, none of the uranium goes to Russia. That would require export licenses.

    Trump was referring to Clinton’s role in the 2010 purchase by Russia’s nuclear agency of Uranium One, a Toronto-based company with mining operations in Kazakhstan, Tanzania and the United States, where the company’s operations amount to about 20 percent of annual U.S. production capacity.

    The fact is — as we reported nearly two years ago — Clinton had no veto power to stop that deal. She was one of nine voting members on the foreign investments committee that unanimously approved it, a panel that also includes the secretaries of the treasury, defense, homeland security, commerce and energy, the attorney general, and representatives from two White House offices — the United States Trade Representative and the Office of Science and Technology Policy. (Separately, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission needed to approve (and did approve) the transfer of two uranium recovery licenses as part of the sale.)

    Only the president could have stopped the sale, and only if at least one member of the foreign investment committee had objected. And even then, the president cannot prohibit a transaction without finding “credible evidence” that the “foreign interest exercising control might take action that threatens to impair the national security,” according to the federal regulation that governs such matters.

    Finally, Russia may own the mines, but the uranium coming out of them stays in the U.S. As the Nuclear Regulatory Commission noted when it approved the sale, “no uranium produced at either facility may be exported.”

    Trump made the same claim in slightly different words three times during his news conference. It’s a replay of a bogus accusation he made during last year’s campaign, when it was debunked by us and other independent fact-checking sites. But constant repetition doesn’t make a false statement true.

    Its all academic now considering the current political environment.

    Fact is the coming midterm elections and the following general election will determine if The Constitution will survive the on slot of the liberal Marxists and or communists both of whom have been attempting to bring The United States of America to her knees. If you are one who would cut of his nose to spite his face, be it known you will lose if the left wins regardless of your political affiliation.

    As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

    And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.-NY TIMES

    You forgot Barack Obama. He helped. xD

    To even believe that the US SoS sold 20% of American uranium to the Russians is absurd, yet that's exactly what conservatives want everyone to believe.
