The “go to” claim of every Trump supporter when things have started to look bleak for the administration, has been Hilary-Uranium, or Hilary-emails. After long investigations, both have turned out to be little more than conspiracy theories, just like the idea that Hilary Clinton was holding children hostage in the basement of a pizza shop in D.C A.K.A “Pizzagate.” It has been Trump supporters only solace in an administration that has done absolutely nothing for its supporters. Somehow, they’ve twisted their thinking into believing “if we can somehow get something on Hilary, Trump will be vindicated of these Russian collusion claims.” Don’t know exactly how this train of thought works logically, being as though one has absolutely nothing to do with the other, but here we are.




NBC News (@NBCNews) reports, on the orders of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Justice Department prosecutors have begun asking FBI agents to explain the evidence they found in a now dormant criminal investigation into a controversial uranium deal that critics have linked to Bill and Hilary Clinton.




The interviews with FBI agents are part of the Justice Departments’ effort to fulfill a promise an assistant attorney general made to Congress last month to examine whether a special counsel was warranted to look into what has become known as the Uranium One deal, a senior justice department official said.




Just as a refresher, here is a clip of a believer’s version of what the Uranium One deal entailed, and MSNBC’s Joy Anne Reid expertly debunking the theory.

“My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we’re going through now. This too shall pass.” Democratic Rep John Conyers told a Detroit area radio show this morning as he announced that he was stepping down from his Congressional seat.




CNN (@cnn) reports, Conyers announced his retirement on Mildred Gaddis’ radio show in Detroit. Conyers endorsed his son to replace him in Congress. Pressure had been mounting for Conyers, who was hospitalized in Michigan late last month, to resign. Members of the Democratic leadership, including Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep Jim Clyburn, one of the elder members of the Congressional Black Caucus, all called on Conyers to step down. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan also called on Conyers to step down.




Last week, Marion Brown, a woman with whom Conyers had settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2005, appeared on NBC’s Today Show and said Conyers had “violated” her body, propositioned her for sex, and touched her inappropriately. The settlement was first reported by BuzzFeed News. Court documents also revealed that another staffer filed against Conyers in ’07, and later dropped a lawsuit against Conyers. She claimed that Conyers sexually harassed her in 2015 and 2016, while she was working for him.
