    Unlike Lerner, the buck does not stop there. If Manafort pleads the 5th, the story does not end there.
    You got that right, President Trump's DOJ is lot more interested in exacting justice while Obama's was all about taking care of its own.

    It's all well documented in the public record.

    That was indeed considerate of you.

    Personally, I think their noses deserve to be rubbed in it unmercifully.

    In case you haven't been keeping up, and is is clear you haven't, This is about Trump and Manafort, Kushner, Sessions and others meeting and colluding with Russia to make a deals trading US sanctions(US foreign policy) for profit in the form of at minimal .05% of the largest oil deal in Russia's history. While using the integrity of our electoral process as a bargaining chip among other things.

    No charges against anybody named Clinton means the stuff you claim is on the public record is full of shit. Just because you saw it on the internet doesn't make it true. TWO words for you PIZZA GATE,just as documented and just as fake. Ask the sick fellow who went into the Pizza place with a gun so he could free people from the basement that doesn't even exist in the Pizza place.

    Donations to the Clinton Foundation, and a Russian Uranium Takeover
    For the 100th Time - 9 federal agencies had to sign off on that deal.

    The Clintons could care less about the price of uranium. The Clintons sold America's uranium in exchange for a $50 million donation to the Clinton Foundation and a $500,000 speaking fee for Bill Clinton.

    LIAR. She couldn't do it even if she wanted to.


    “Only the President has the authority to suspend or prohibit a covered transaction,” the guidelines say.


    But Schweizer is wrong when he says that Clinton had “veto power” and “could have stopped the deal.” At best, she could have forced the president to make a decision.

    The committee, which is known by its acronym CFIUS, can approve a sale, but it cannot stop a sale. Only the president can do that, and only if the committee recommends or “any member of CFIUS recommends suspension or prohibition of the transaction,” according to guidelines issued by the Treasury Department in December 2008 after the department adopted its final rule a month earlier.

    Treasury Department, Dec. 8, 2008: Only the President has the authority to suspend or prohibit a covered transaction. Pursuant to section 6(c) of Executive Order 11858, CFIUS refers a covered transaction to the President if CFIUS or any member of CFIUS recommends suspension or prohibition of the transaction, or if CFIUS otherwise seeks a Presidential determination on the transaction.

    Even the president cannot prohibit a transaction without “credible evidence” that the “foreign interest exercising control might take action that threatens to impair the national security,” according to the regulation.


    The Clinton campaign told the Times that generally these matters did not reach the secretary’s level, so she may not have been involved at all. According to the Times, Jose Fernandez, a former assistant secretary of state, represented the department on the committee.

    It took years for that deal to develop and Bill Clinton played a key roll in greasing the skids for all the required moves, Hillary being SOS helped ensure a big payday, even if she didn't have total authority.
