White Guy Begs For Mercy in Broad Daylight Before Black Man Executes Him, Here’s The Disturbing Reason He Was Killed

Published

on

White guy accidentally hits a black four-year-old with his car. The child was playing in, or ran into, the street. White guy stops car to help or report the accident. Black child’s father arrives and begins beating up the white driver. The black dad’s black friend then tells the white driver’s black passenger to get out of there because he’s black. Then black dad’s black friend shoots the white driver. Now the black shooter is missing and we have a court case.

Sounds like the plot of any B-Rated movie you find on cheesy late night murder mystery shows on bad television stations. Not much of a “who did it” but more of a “where is he” hunt for the shooter with a $7,500 reward.

People are reporting this as a race based racist case. The only reason the white driver was shot was because he was white. The only reason the black passenger survived was because he was black.

I’m wondering why the Dad’s friend shot the driver. The Dad already beat the guy up. What was the point in shooting him? And where’s the kid? Anyone know where the four-year-old victim is laying after getting hit by the car? What part of all this rage does someone go find the horribly injured child (who I think passed away)?

Was this a racist murder?

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said that race may have “fed into” the deadly shooting of a driver who struck a 4-year-old child last month.

He announced a $7,500 reward for help finding Deonte Baber, 25.

Jamie Urton, a white man, was driving on Kenton Street when he accidentally struck a 4-year-old boy March 24, police said. The boy’s father attacked Urton and then Baber shot him, Deters said.

Hey guy, what about your kid who just got hit? Save your child, then beat up the driver if you really want to. At least it shows that you care about your kid. I know there’s a rage that happens when someone hurts your kid, but if you kill someone in revenge, then you hurt your entire family. Now you’re gone too.

Before he shot Urton, Deters said that Baber, who is black, told the man’s black passenger, “Get out of here. You’re black.”

Baber shot at Urton five times, Deters said.

A warrant has been issued for Baber’s arrest but he is still at large.

Sounds racist to me. Yup, totally racist. Let’s shoot the white guy and send the black guy hiding and running. Sounds stupid to me because now the black guy is a witness and two guys are going away for murder. If they had any brains, then their kid wouldn’t have been running into the street. Any more brains, then they would’ve simply made sure the white driver didn’t go anywhere and that the police and insurance companies took care of everything the legal way.

The boy’s father, Jamall Killings, is also charged with murder in connection with the case. Deters said that before Baber arrived to the car, Killings beat Urton.
Killings has turned himself in.

I’m glad he turned himself in, but where’s his buddy? Is he packing up his house and running to hide in another state? If Killings (appropriate name) wants to have any dignity to his name, then help the police find the man who actually shot the driver. Killings didn’t kill him. He did what a lot of Father’s might do in a fit of rage when someone hurts their child. Sure, he landed a few punches, but he didn’t kill the guy. The OTHER guy killed him. That’s who gets the murder charges. The angry dad who lost his temper after seeing his child hit by a car, that guy gets a regular charge that comes with attacking someone. That should be ALL he gets. The other guy? Well you can put him away for murder. It wasn’t even his kid and here he goes shooting someone that has no connection to him whatsoever.

There has to be other witnesses to this. You know as soon as folks fight in the hood that everyone pulls out the cell phone and yells WorldStarHipHop.

I know someone out there has a video of this shooting.

Corrupt Dem Congresswoman Just Busted Stealing Money From Children – What She Did With Money Will Make You SICK!

This will piss you off!

Published

on

And once again we have a Democrat congressperson excelling at what they do best, lying, cheating and stealing!

She partied with the Obama, Pelosi and Reid, traveled on Air Force one next to President Obama, and cast her superdelegate vote for Crooked Hillary Clinton although they delegates should have gone for Socialist Bernie Sanders. But today Corrine Brown is in federal court for stealing scholarship money from school children. Yes, you read that correctly, “the woman of the people,” stole money. FROM CHILDREN!

The disgraced congresswoman must now defend herself against allegations that she funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from a non-profit charity, One Door for Education, into her own filthy pocket. If convicted on all 24 counts, she faces 357 years in prison and $4.8 million in fines. Only a Democrat being a Democrat!

From the very beginning, Brown has been shrouded in deep controversy. Right after winning her election in 1992, the Federal Election Commission accused Brown of violating numerous campaign finance laws. And that was even before the campaign finance laws became strick under the McCain/Feingold law that forced the creation of so-called “Super Pacs.” Most notably, she accepted donations from foreign citizens and even failed to report the use of a corporate plane which she managed to get her greasy paws on. And investigators are saying that’s just the tip of the ethical iceberg.

First Coast News:

Corrine Brown pleads for mercy, prosecutors ask for prison time

Former Jacksonville area Congresswoman Corrine Brown took the stand Thursday afternoon, pleading for mercy from federal judge Timothy Corrigan.

“I am sorry you have to be here today to see me in this situation,” Brown said in her statement to the court. “I never imagined I would one day be in court asking people to speak on my behalf – never. In hindsight, I wished I had been more diligent in overseeing my personal and professional life The idea that some people could believe these charges hurt me because it runs contrary to everything I’ve ever believed and done in my life. I hope and pray these proceedings to don’t make them [ordinary people] lose faith in the system. I humbly ask for mercy and compassion.”

Brown was convicted on 18 counts of fraud and corruption in May.

The lead prosecutor in the sentencing hearing argued Thursday that the former congresswoman should be sentenced to about 7.5 to 9 years in federal prison. Her defense attorney is seeking probation and community service.

Prsecutor Tysen Duva told the court based on her actions during the investigation and in the trial, she should receive the most prison time out of the three co-conspirators.

Brown wore a magenta suit to the courthouse Thursday and briefly appeared in the overflow courtroom prior to the sentencing hearing.

Brown’s defense attorney James Smith objected to various aspects of the sentencing recommendations, including how much money Brown should be culpable for.
Prosecutor Duva asked the court, “What accountability does the law require?” during his presentation.

Duva said Brown was accustomed to receiving money she should not have received.
She also lied about donations to colleges, churches and other entities.

He also argued that Brown has made ludicrous comments during the investigation, including a comment where she essentially said that had investigators not been looking into her case, the Pulse shooting in Orlando would never have happened. She also referred to the charges as “bogus” and “racist,” implying that she was targeted for her race in the case.

Duva objected to that notion by saying, “She was targeted because she committed fraud, not because she was black or white.”

She attacked numerous agencies during the investigation, which Duva states shows her character as a person.

“Why do you support someone who says this nonsense?” Duva questioned the court Thursday, referring to the upcoming character witnesses set to speak.

Duva claims Brown “failed miserably” at being transparent during her time in office as a congresswoman.

“This is systemic and this is who she became,” said Duva, arguing the character witnesses cannot overshadow the conduct she performed in the criminal case.

“It’s not something that should be present in American democracy,” he said.

Duva said the judge has to make a difficult decision in this case.

Brown has previously asked for delays in her sentencing due to storm damage to her home and mental and physical welfare checks, but all those motions were denied.

On Wednesday, prosecutors recommended reduced prison time sentences for Brown’s co-conspirators, former of chief of staff Ronnie Simmons and fake charity founder Carla Wiley. Judge Time Corrigan accepted this recommendation for a reduced prison time range of 21-27 months for Wiley and 33-41 months of Simmons. More on that hearing can be read here.

Brown, Simmons and Wiley will not receive their final sentencing until Dec. 4, according to recent court documents.

Corrine Brown Character Witness Testimony: Nov. 16, 2017

Corrine Brown had several witnesses come forward Thursday in support of her through witness testimony during the sentencing hearing.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee provided a glowing character witness of Corrine Brown during her sentencing hearing Thursday.

Jackson Lee described via telephone testimony it as her “privilege” to characterize Corrine Brown as a “loving person.”

She said Brown has had a “pointed and direct effort [in] helping others, not herself.”

The veterans’ community loved Congresswoman Brown, Jackson Lee said, stating that Brown has helped those with PTSD and other issues following fighting overseas. She also stated Brown helped tremendously with relief efforts during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

“That shows a character of giving to others unselfishly,” Jackson Lee said.

A bishop from the Orlando area stated that Brown would help their community when other politicians couldn’t make things happen. He said she was “driven by wanting to support … and bless others.”

One woman who went to school with Brown’s daughter got emotional during her testimony in support of Brown. She said Brown taught her valuable lessons that helped her thrive in her military career and how to treat her soldiers.

“She’s been my champion .. my mentor,” the woman said.

Dr. Oliver Hunter of Houston recommended that Brown receive community service instead of incarceration time.

Another witness came forward and said Brown should be out helping others instead of in jail because “the people trust her.”

Melissa Alexander came forward to speak on behalf of Brown, describing her as a “blunt and passionate” woman. She cited that she’s been supportive of other people even up to the sentencing hearing.

Marissa Alexander, character witness for #CorrineBrown responded to the prosecutor’s criticism of Brown’s vocal personality. “She’s a largely blunt & passionate, persistent & formidable person. There’s a difference between transactional leadership & transformative leadership.

One man came forward and said Brown has helped other garner jobs through projects she’s worked on in Jacksonville and other areas. He beseeched the judge to “embrace her through your mercy” and not give her any prison time.

Roselyn, a life-long friend from Brooklyn, New York, came forward to provide her insight into who Brown is as a person. She said Brown is a passionate and hard-working woman who has long been a beacon of support for those in need of help.

After lunch, political consultant David Muller shared testimony on Brown, implying that she’s a genuine, caring person.

“It’s never about her,” he said. “She is the most tenacious fighter for people.”

He also discussed a time where Brown called him up and asked for help getting a train, so that she could get supplies to Haiti following an earthquake. She had 18 tractor trailers full of supplies and moved them via a cruise ship to Haiti, Muller said.

“It’s never about her. It’s about helping other people,” he said. “She is a wonderful, compassionate person.”

Many in the court clapped following Muller’s testimony about Brown.

Corrine Brown issues a statement during sentencing hearing

Former Congresswoman Corrine Brown issued a statement during the sentencing hearing Thursday, apologizing to the court, her family, friends and supporters.

“First and foremost, I want to thank my family friends and supporters for their continued prayers and support.”

“I have always strived to protect my name and my reputation”

She said the charges against her are not who she is.

“It runs contrary to everything I am and everything I’ve ever done in my life.” Brown said in her statement. “Public service is an honor and a privilege.”

“I ask that you take into consideration all that I’ve done in my life, and I humbly ask for mercy and compassion. Thank you very much.”

Additional arguments by defense attorney

The defense attorney belabored the point that they are against the notion that Brown abused a position of trust, which is established by the evidence presented in the trial.

Smith explained the definition of obstruction of justice, which Brown is accused of doing while taking the stand by the prosecutor, stating that it is the “intention or deliberate effort while on the stand to make material falsehoods.”

The judge wasn’t so sure and asked the defense attorney to elaborate.

Smith appeared to get emotional after posing two questions: “What type of sentence does justice require in this case?” and “How do you sentence someone who is a legend?”

He attributes some of her actions to the progress our country has made in terms of relations for black people.

Smith said he met with an Orlando attorney who was from Jacksonville and said the attorney described Brown as “our Martin Luther King” for black Jacksonville natives.

“None of those people had to push the boulder up the mountain like she did,” said Smith, referring to others in Congress. “She truly is a legend.”

Smith said “extensive rigorous community service” would be much more appropriate for Brown than going off to federal prison for five years. Restitution is also not conducive to prison time, Smith argued.

The judge will also be accepting additional letters in support of Brown.

Court recessed at about 2:40 p.m. Thursday. The final sentencing will take place on Monday, Dec. 4 at 10 a.m.

Following the recess, Smith briefly spoke with media regarding the atmosphere in the courtroom, confirming that it was at some points emotional for him because he’s gotten a chance to know Brown over the year-plus they’ve been working together. He stated some of the emotions just show that he’s only human.

The Initial Trial

There are a lot of moving parts in the case against Corrine Brown and her co-conspirators.

Carla Wiley first became involved in the fraud scheme when she started dating Ronnie Simmons.

Carla Wiley, President of the now-defunct fake charity One Door for Education. She pleaded guilty last March to wire fraud, and agreed to testify against Brown.

She was president of a charity called One Door for Education, which was never actually registered as a 501(c)(3).

The fake charity received more than $800,000 in four years, with about only $1,200 of it actually going to scholarships for students. That money is now gone.

Simmons was dating Wiley when he told her he needed a nonprofit to financially back a reception for congresswoman Brown in 2012. Wiley offered One Door for Education as an option for that reception.

The charity claimed to give scholarships to poor and underprivileged children seeking the become teachers.

During the initial trial earlier this year, Brown’s defense attorney, James Smith, described her as a hardworking congresswoman who was dedicated to her constituents.

Lead prosecutor A. Tysen Duva argued during the trial that Ronnie Simmons worked under Brown and did her bidding by taking out $800 a day from the One Door for Education bank account and depositing it into Brown’s personal bank account. He did this numerous times, according to Duva and evidence released earlier this month.

The fake charity was essentially used as a slush fund for Corrine Brown’s travels, expenses and shopping, according to the prosecutors.

She used the money put in her bank account to go to Nassau, Bahamas with her daughter, fly to Beverly Hills and shop along Rodeo Drive, and attend a Beyoncé concert, according to court documents and previous reports by First Coast News.

The prosecutors also argued that Brown committed wire fraud, mail fraud and stole money from the government after she lied on tax documents.

Brown had friends in high places, such as former CSX CEO Mike Ward. She would ask them for donation to Open Door for Education and many of them gladly donated, according to previous reports and prosecutor testimony.

Ward, for instance, contributed $35,000 to One Door for Education after learning that the money would go toward providing students with iPads for learning.

Prosecutors also argued that Brown lied about and inflated what she gave in tithes to various churches. The churches came forward in the trial and said the donations claimed to be given by Brown did not match their records, to which Brown said she sometimes gave anonymous donations.

Other legitimate scholarship organizations came forward and said they had never received funds from Brown’s charity.

Meanwhile, Brown’s tax returns claimed she contributed as much as $30,000 – 20 percent to a third of her income, to various charities.

Prosecutors also claimed that without the cash deposits that Ronnie Simmons made to her bank account, she would have overdrawn her account numerous times during 2012 to 2015.

When Brown took the stand, she denied any wrongdoing on her part and said she trusted the wrong people and said they were behind the unlawful acts.

She cried multiple times on the stand and said she was not to blame for what had happened, according to previous reports.

Overall, the prosecution argued that $330,000 of the money garnered through One Door for Education was used for events receptions surrounding the congresswoman. Meanwhile, $70,000 of that money went to cash in the congresswoman’s pocket. Carla Wiley pocked more than $100,000, while Simmons is accused of pocketing thousands of thousands of dollars for himself.

The worst part about this whole mess is the fact that everyone knew this woman was crooked but still had no issue palling around with her. She has had issues since the moment she won her election and the Democrat Party has stood by her without question. Yet they are the party who claims to be for the people. Yeah, unless those people are underprivileged children who want to get an education that is.

Please share if you want to see this congresswoman behind bars….

Horrific Video Catches What 3 Racist Black Nurses Did To Dying WWII Vet As They Laughed

This is the most horrific thing, Ever!

Published

on

Thanks to the former president Barack Hussein Obama and his manufactured race war, racial tensions in our country are now at an all-time high.

But now the so-called “race wars” have reached a new all-time low after a video popped up online which appears to show a horrible act of racism in a nursing home. It’s unbelievable what a group of 3 black nurses did to a dying white World War II veteran who was screaming in agony from the confines of his nursing home bed.

Eighty-nine-year-old highly-decorated WW II veteran James Dempsey served his country honorably, and probably never fathomed that the worst experience of his life would come at the very end and at the hands of a nasty staff of racist nurses. After suddenly being unable to breathe, he pushed the call button in his room six times, frantically telling staff over the intercom that he needed immediate help. Help which never came. Instead, he was laughed at hysterically.

Via mPolitical:

During questioning, Nuckles simply passed off the entire incident as an honest mistake” after being caught red handed in a lie after being confronted with the video footage.“I was just basing everything on what I normally do.”

Doing what you “normally do?” Is laughing while World War II veterans die what you “normally do,” Wanda Nuckles?

“Not only did she lie about the chest compressions, the staff did not call 911 until an hour later. When nurses had difficulty getting Dempsey’s oxygen machine operational during attempts to fix the issue, you can hear Nuckles and others laughing,” Popular Military reported.

Retired nursing professional Elaine Harris reviewed the footage and still cannot get over the horror of what she witnessed.

In 43 years in nursing, I have never seen such disregard for human life in a healthcare setting, is what I witnessed,” Harris said.

Harris went on to criticise the nursing staff, “claiming that the nurses failed to respond, assess and act- not to mention the failure to continuously perform CPR,” Popular Military went on.

That is absolutely inappropriate. You never stop compressions,” said concluded.

What’s even more startling is that the Atlanta nursing home tried to bury the story from being leaked to the public, but due to the incredible perseverance of the local news outlet 11Alive, these women will forever be shamed. “Attorneys representing the Atlanta nursing home tried to prevent 11Alive from obtaining the video. They asked a DeKalb County judge to keep the video sealed and then attempted to appeal to the Georgia State Supreme Court. The judge ruled in favor of 11Alive and the nursing home eventually dropped its appeal to the state’s highest court,” 11 Alive reported.

Investigator Steven Haffley pointed out that criminal charges need to be immediately pressed against these 3 individuals and that it’s ridiculous that the only punishment they’ve received is simply losing their jobs as nurses. On top of that, how these nurses acted wasn’t even normal human behavior. Haffley stated:

“On a human level, how could you possibly do that?” Steven began. “I might not like some of the protesters, but if I saw someone dying on the street, suffering in pain, calling out for help, I’d help them. It’s just apart of being human…But somehow these nurses don’t even have that compassion for a World War II veteran, who’s dying in pain. How did they get to be nurses?

“James Dempsey died at the age of 89. He was a decorated World War II veteran from Woodstock, Georgia. He served his country with honor in the time of its greatest need. God bless his soul. I’m so sorry you were treated this way,” Steven concluded.

11Alive reports that Dempsey’s family have reached a settlement agreement with Sava Senior Care, who fired 10 of the nurses involved after the video was brought to their attention. Horrifyingly, this isn’t the first time that Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation has abused patients, as they continue to have a history of abuse after Dempsey’s death due to health and safety violations. They’ve been given a one-star rating from Medicare, and have also be smacked with $813,113 in fines since 2015.

These savage scumbag nurses called this sick incident where a man died an “honest mistake?” Are you freaking kidding? A man died desperately gasping for air and they laughed hysterically? How is this considered an “honest mistake?” This has to be the sickest display of racism I have ever witnessed in my lifetime.

Nurses take an oath to do good and help people. These 3 characters decided to ignore a man who was a WW2 hero because they are a bunch of racists who hate white people, plain and simple. These sorts of acts were unheard of before the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, who won only because white liberals in this country suffer from an acute condition of white guilt.

Please share in hopes justice will be served in this awful case….

This Is The SHOCKING Identity Of Uranium One Informant And Video Of What’s Hidden In His Briefcase Will Bring Hillary Down

Hillary is Not happy about this!

Published

on

The infamous FBI confidential informant who went undercover to look into Crooked Hillary Clinton’s role the now widely known Obama administration-era uranium deal has now been identified.

William Campbell, who is a Russian lobbyist is, in fact, the informant, according to the Reuters news organization. Campbell will be testifying before a congressional committee about the 2010 sale of Uranium One. The deal where a Russian supported company bought a uranium firm with mines in the U.S. and is responsible for 20% off all the Uranium we have in the United States. Campbell gave information to the FBI about what he saw while undercover as an informant.

All clues point to the fact that Campbell, who was undercover for roughly five years, worked to get information on Russia’s efforts to grow its atomic energy business in the U.S.

Reuters Reports:

Exclusive: Secret witness in Senate Clinton probe is ex-lobbyist for Russian firm

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senate Republicans say their investigation of Hillary Clinton’s role in approving a deal to sell U.S. uranium mines to a Russian company hinges in part on the testimony of a secret informant in a bribery and extortion scheme inside the same company.

The Senate committee searching for Clinton’s alleged wrongdoing is keeping their witness’s name cloaked. However, William D. Campbell, a lobbyist, confirmed to Reuters he is the informant who will testify and provide documents to Congress about the Obama Administration’s 2010 approval of the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company with uranium mines in the United States, to Russia’s Rosatom.

At the time of the sale, Campbell was a confidential source for the FBI in a Maryland bribery and kickback investigation of the head of a U.S. unit of Rosatom, the Russian state-owned nuclear power company. Campbell was identified as an FBI informant by prosecutors in open court and by himself in a publicly available lawsuit he filed last year.

In a telephone interview, Campbell said he wanted to testify because of his concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further.

Campbell’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, who has not previously identified her client, said despite Campbell telling the government ”how corrupt the company was,” Rosatom still got permission to buy Uranium One. She did not say what Campbell would reveal regarding any alleged wrongdoing by Clinton.

Clinton has said the Senate probe is an attempt to shift attention away from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s alleged role in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. As the heat from Mueller’s investigation has intensified, Trump has repeatedly called for an inquiry into Clinton and the Russian uranium deal.

“This latest iteration is simply more of the Right doing Trump’s bidding for him to distract from his own Russia problems,” said Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman.

Some people who know Campbell are skeptical that he can shed much light on Uranium One. Two law enforcement officials with direct involvement in the Rosatom bribery case in which Campbell was an informant said they had no recollection or record of him mentioning the deal during their repeated interviews with him.

Also, although both Uranium One and the bribery cases involved Rosatom, the two cases involved different business units, executives and allegations, with little other apparent overlap, Reuters found in a review of the court records of the bribery case.

Campbell countered those who dismiss his knowledge of the Uranium One deal. “I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist and I have it,” Campbell said. He declined to give details of those documents.

Reuters was unable to learn when the closed-door testimony has been scheduled.

Trump asked that a Justice Department gag order on Campbell stemming from the bribery case be lifted so that he can testify to congressional investigators, White House officials said.

The Justice Department has partially lifted that gag order.

CAMPBELL TESTIMONY ‘CRITICAL’

Campbell potentially now has a larger starring role in the Washington drama after the Justice Department said in a letter to Congress on Monday that it was considering appointing a special prosecutor to launch an investigation into Republican allegations of wrongdoing by Clinton, Trump’s former political rival, in the deal.

Under Clinton, the State Department was part of a nine-agency government Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States that approved the purchase of Uranium One. Her critics, including Trump, allege large donations by people connected to the Uranium One deal made to her family’s foundation influenced the State Department’s decision to approve it.

Reuters has no evidence that Clinton orchestrated the approval of Uranium One.

In an email, Rosatom said the company had made no donations to the Clinton Foundation and had not asked others to do so. The foundation stressed the State Department was only one member of the committee that approved the deal and said Clinton had no personal involvement in the decision.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley said in a letter to Toensing, Campbell’s lawyer, that her client appears to have information “critical to the Committee’s oversight of the Justice Department and its ongoing inquiry into the manner in which” the Uranium One sale was approved.

BRIBERY SCHEME

Campbell worked as an informant for federal authorities investigating Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official in charge of U.S. operations for Tenex, a unit of Rosatom. Authorities later accused Mikerin of taking bribes from a shipping company in exchange for contracts to transport Russian uranium into the United States. He pleaded guilty in federal court in Maryland and was sentenced to prison for four years.

The Justice Department had also initially charged Mikerin with extorting kickbacks from Campbell after hiring him as a $50,000-a-month lobbyist.

Prosecutors alleged Mikerin had demanded Campbell pay between one-third and half of that money back to him each month under threat of losing the contract and veiled warnings of violence from the Russians. The demand prompted Campbell to turn to the FBI in 2010, which gave its blessing for him to remain part of the scheme.

Federal prosecutors were ready to use Campbell as a star witness against Mikerin, but they backed away after defense attorneys raised questions about Campbell’s credibility and whether he was a victim or had “entered into a business arrangement with eyes wide open,” according to court records.

Before it was taken down last year, the website of Campbell’s company, Sigma Transnational, did not suggest his firm was a lobbying powerhouse. The website listed four other employees and advisers, although one had died years earlier. A second employee listed said in a court document that she never worked for the company but had agreed in 2014 to pay Campbell to list her as an employee and allow her to use the Sigma name in a business deal. Campbell declined to comment on the staffing or his lobbying contract with Tenex.

Prosecutors dropped the extortion charges against Mikerin and never mentioned Campbell again in any charging documents. A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment on the case. Campbell also declined to comment on the issue.

Reuters has been unable to learn why Tenex chose Campbell as its lobbyist. He acknowledged in lawsuit he filed in 2016 that he was hired despite the fact he “had no experience with nuclear fuel sales.”

In a telephone interview this past week Campbell confirmed he was eager to testify because he has deep concerns about the Kremlin’s activities in the United States. Campbell’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing also confirmed that despite Campbell telling the government ”how corrupt the company was.” Interestingly enough, Rosatom still managed to get permission to buy Uranium One. She did not say what Campbell would reveal regarding any allegations of wrongdoing by the Obama Administration or then-Secretary of State, Crooked Hillary Clinton.

In typical Democrat Party playbook fashion, Crooked Killary Clinton of course deflected by saying that the Senate probe is a weak attempt to shift attention away from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s alleged role in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and election. As the heat from Mueller’s investigation has intensified, Trump has repeatedly called for an inquiry into Clinton and the Russian uranium deal. Wonder how long it will be until washed up Killary Clinton starts calling out “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” again?
