Blind eyes, ignorance, incompetence, and corruption.
What should be a very big story may go largely unnoticed today. However, here is an attempt to boost it. Russian’s, the Vladimir Putin regime and corporations, has successfully penetrated the US Government and American Political System via capitalists’ vulnerability that is “profit and greed above all.”
Several things happened to make America more vulnerable, including treating corporations like persons and allowing them to accrue capital clout to undermine the principle of one-person, one vote. Corporate and PAC money undermined American democracy and Congress let that happen.
Russians, who were defeated, on one hand, fought their way back by exploiting capitalism’s weakest links and motivations that also enveloped politicians.
Republicans have one the reigns, though not without a lot of help from corrupted Democrats.
“The Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions at the time, insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of the committee to oppose the Uranium One deal.
But FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI, in fact, had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.
Then-Attorney General Eric Holder was among the Obama administration officials joining Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States at the time the Uranium One deal was approved. Multiple current and former government officials told The Hill they did not know whether the FBI or DOJ ever alerted committee members to the criminal activity they uncovered.”
Corruption at every turn.
