What the heck is going? No juicy Trump tweets this morning?? He's slipping.
He waited until tonight and he must be getting nervous:
"President Donald Trump re-upped his complaints about former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's ties to Russia in a set of tweets Monday night.
On Twitter, Trump wrote: "Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech...."
About 10 minutes later, the President completed the message, writing, "...money to Bill, the Hillary Russian 'reset,' praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!"
"The evening Twitter references recalled a Clinton controversy documented in The New York Times two years ago. Trump's campaign made the same claim last fall when he was competing against Clinton to become president.
Nick Merrill, a former Clinton campaign spokesman, immediately refuted Trump on Twitter and linked to a fact-checking website."
"Trump followed his Clinton tweets with one disparaging the House Freedom Caucus, and another pledging the Democrats would work with him on health care after the imminent collapse he expects Obamacare to have, adding "We are in very good shape!"
"The State Department under Clinton was one of several agencies that signed off on a deal that included the Russian atomic energy agency. During the period of the deal, a Russian investment bank tied to the deal paid Bill Clinton for a speech and the Canadian chairman of the entity being sold to Russia moved funding to the Clinton Foundation.
Former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta had been a member of the board of a Russian energy company."http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/27/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-house-intelligence/index.html
"A False ‘Corruption’ Claim
"In a TV ad, Donald Trump falsely claims that Hillary Clinton “handed over American uranium rights to the Russians” as part of a “pay-to-play” scheme to get “filthy rich.” Clinton did not have the authority to unilaterally approve that deal.
As secretary of state, Clinton was one of nine voting members of the foreign investment committee in 2010 that approved the uranium deal, which was then approved by the president and passed through the Nuclear Regulatory Commission."
"the Clintons didn’t pocket money that was donated to the nonprofit Clinton Foundation, set up by Bill Clinton after his time as president. Instead, they made their money outside of office by giving speeches and writing books".
"the idea that Clinton could have “handed over” uranium rights, even if she wanted to, isn’t supported by the facts."
"The donations from those with ties to Uranium One weren’t publicly disclosed by the Clinton Foundation, even though then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had an agreement with the White House that the foundation would disclose all contributors. Days after the Times story, the foundation acknowledged that it “made mistakes,” saying it had disclosed donations from a Canadian charity, for instance, but not the donors to that charity who were associated with the uranium company."
"The ad’s support doesn’t back up the claims that Clinton “cut deals for donors” or “sold out American workers.” And it’s simply false to claim she “handed over American uranium rights to the Russians.”http://www.factcheck.org/2016/10/a-false-corruption-claim/
