Perhaps the most shocking thing of all about the Uranium One corruption scandal is the drive-by media’s deliberate effort to hide the story from the public.
The following headlines are only a slight exaggeration. I’ve used “The Hill,” which broke the Uranium One story, as a representative of those few outlets covering a fact-filled report painting a picture of a staggeringly corrupt Obama administration, which knew that Hillary was selling off America’s national security for her own benefit, and not only did not stop the deal, but took great care to hide it.

The Hill: Is anyone listening? Clinton took massive bribes; Obama knew; and the administration still gave 20% of our uranium to Russia

The Hill: This is serious, folks. We’re tell you about major corruption affecting American national security.

For the best summary to date of the Uranium One scandal, I recommend this piece from Andrew McCarthy. As you read it, keep in mind this screen shot from just a couple of days ago:
When I placed the story squarely in front of someone who has been obsessing for the past year about the Russians and asked why he wasn’t obsessing about this, he came back with the Leftist’s favorite excuse: This is old news because Peter Schweizer already reported it in Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. I countered by saying Schweizer was making reasonable deductions based on available evidence. What’s new about the current report is (a) and FBI insider is confirming that Schweizer’s educated guesses were accurate; (b) that the Obama administration knew this because of FBI reports, but chose to ignore and hide the reports; and (c) that Hillary sent Russian spies back to Russia, with no strings attached, to limit her potential exposure.
