    Breitbart showed Clinton Cash this weekend. For all the naysayers it even had sources so you can search for yourself.

    A nasty bit of propaganda if there ever was one.

    Why is selling a uranium company to Russia an issue? They have thousands of nuclear weapons already...

    Because it's a strategic resource and the past 70 so years Russia hasn't been on our buddy list.

    The question is did the State Department sign off on the deal because the Clinton foundation received donations. The problem isn't the transfer of uranium, as the New York Times notes, "Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department..."

    Do you have a comprehension problem, or are you just ignoring the real problem?

    No. There's a difference between reporting facts and taking those facts to make a political argument. Schweizer himself admitted that he made a key error when he reported on Clinton's role in the uranium trade, saying on Fox News that she could have "vetoed" the deal when that was actually not true.

    Moreover, though he sells himself as a muckraker, he's an active political operative for the Republican party. He was a speechwriter for the Bush administration, worked for Sarah Palin as a foreign policy advisor, and has received cash infusions for his work from the Koch brothers among others.

    And, Schweizer has serious journalistic problems. He's been repeatedly corrected for false reporting, and two reporters from the Sunday Times found that they could not find sources or confirm facts from his book Friendly Spies.

    This forum cracks me up and infuriates me. Everyone here is so entrenched in their views. There is no real debate. Only yelling across the aisle at each other.

    What a load of crap. Peter Schweizer has been a pretty respected investigative journalist for years. I've read a number of his books and they have always been thorough and well researched. The problem here, in case you missed it, is the Clintons have always used their personal relationships and political access to enrich themselves and the Clinton Foundation. They've always played it very close to the line of illegality, and that's when people start asking questions.

    As far as Bill, Hillary, and a good many of their supporters like you are concerned, they didn't get arrested so it's all good. Well, it's not. The appearance of impropriety and favoritism makes people stop and ask questions about her judgement. Her less than satisfactory answers calls her veracity into question. The Clintons bring these problems on themselves and hope their supporters give her a pass and look the other way. But the sheer volume of it is making that extremely difficult.

    The Sunday Times concluded that he made up some of his sources and even Schweizer agreed that he made a mistakes.

    I agree. The foundation is suspicious as hell and I have real problems with the Clinton's relationships through the foundation, but that doesn't mean that the movie based on Schweizer's book can't be its own bit of propaganda.

    You really think I'm a Clinton supporter? Really? *Hits mic* Is this thing on?

    I've repeatedly quoted Mercutio to say, "A plague o' both your houses..."

    The only pro-Clinton argument I've made is that she's not Trump. Which is to say, I'm damning her with praise.

    I stand apart and take comfort in the fact that eventually everyone hates me.

    After this election, I might just throw my phone away. I get texts from both campaigns. It's horrible.

    EDIT: Yee, gods. The app is horrible. I feel so game-ified, and I'm pretty sure I just gave the campaign money and agreed to host an event in my home. F-------ck!
