This claim comes from Peter Schweizer's book Clinton Cash. The Washington Post notes that the details mentioned above are correct: The deal gave Russia control of about 20 percent of U.S. uranium extraction capacity, according to a 2010 CNN article about the deal. In other words, Russia has rights to the uranium extracted at those sites, which ...

No, this is a twisting of the facts. It's true that there was a period in 2011-13 when Clinton's State Department debated whether Boko Haram should be classified as a direct threat to the US, while the government fighting Boko Haram in Nigeria warned that doing so would aid their fundraising and status. They chose not to until 2013, but, in 2012 under ...

96% of donations went to the Clinton Family Foundation, not the Clinton Foundation, and this is an important distinction. Both of the articles you link carry corrections to this effect, but this article goes into more detail about why it matters in the context of a Wall Street Journal article carrying the same claim (I can't verify whether the WSJ have ...

The proposed law co-sponsored by Clinton in 2005 prohibits flag burning under specific circumstances. It does not attempt to make flag burning illegal in general (i.e. outside of those specific circumstances). Clinton has voted against a proposed amendment to the Constitution that would allow Congress to ban flag burning in general. In 2005, Clinton co-...

No, this is not classified information. There have been plenty of descriptions of the timeline to launch US nuclear weapons, most much more detailed than anything Secretary Clinton said, and none of the people publishing them have been prosecuted. Also the articles giving those details are still easily available, and have been for years, indicating that the ...

This Twitchy article quotes a tweet from Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale denying the claim: I inspected anti-Clinton merchandise very hard in 2016, and I didn't see any such t-shirts around the RNC. Certainly not IN the convention. [...] It also quotes a tweet from a conservative talk radio host, Jason Rantz denying the claim. While absence of proof ...

This is Machado's own claim, as she confirmed to the New York Times today. Ms. Machado recalled the taunts from Mr. Trump that Mrs. Clinton invoked on Monday night, as well as another sobriquet: “Miss Eating Machine.” [edit: As the other answer notes, this was not first made public at the debate. She has been stating this publicly since May 2016 at the ...

Politifact evaluated a number of claims from Trump's press conference, including this one. They referred back to a campaign fact check where they rated a similar claim Mostly False: The reference is to Russia’s nuclear power agency buying a controlling interest in a Toronto-based company. That company has mines, mills and tracts of land in Wyoming, ...

This is a claim where we will likely only get circumstantial evidence for either side. We already have the statement of one reporter on Twitter stating that they didn't see these shirts in the convention and a radio host wondering if they may have been sold outside. Clinton brought this issue up in response to an image by Kathy Griffin which she says is "a ...

The claim is a little disingenuous, because it introduces a false equivalence between the existence of an open investigation without conclusions, and an investigation by authorities that led to a lawsuit that led to the Donald J. Trump Foundation dissolving. After all, anyone can conduct an investigation (below you will see mention of "bounty hunters" ...

This is easily google-able and a matter of record. Quotes from Alinsky's book are readily available and can be verified. The answer is very clearly: no, he did not dedicate his book to Lucifer (or Satan), and no, he was not her mentor. Two good looks at this are from Snopes and the Washington Post. On the claim that he dedicated his book to Lucifer: ...

If we listen a couple of seconds longer, Coulter specifies that it's about the "fusion GPS story", so it's about the Trump-Russia dossier. Cost of the dossier There are a number of claims out there: $168k paid by Fusion GPS to Orbis/Steel, according to Fusion GPS. This is the money - minus Steels salary and operational costs - that theoretically could ...

Machado made the same claims in an interview with Inside Edition in May 2016: Machado, who claims she actually gained closer to 15 pounds, told IE she felt publicly shamed. She said he called her “Miss Piggy." It made her feel “so fat” that it made her “very depressed," she said. The Huffington Post reports Trump's other insult was featured in the ...

Was this email written by Hillary Clinton? There is no reason to believe that it wasn't. As Wikileaks states: The emails were made available in the form of thousands of PDFs by the US State Department as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request. You can see the original PDFs at Wikileaks as well. The Freedom of Information Act request was ...

Here is a video that goes into details very thoroughly, and answers your question perfectly, because it goes into detail of the actual physics behind why the video of the rally and why it looks the way it does. To summarize, it has to do with how cameras work, especially the zoom feature. In a nutshell, the news cameras that were at the other side of the ...

There are several claims to be addressed in that tweet: Explicit claims: 1. Hillary Clinton is crooked. The definition of "crooked" is unclear. One particular definition would require Hillary Clinton to be guilty of some specific crimes beyond reasonable doubt - for that particular definition the claim is false. Another definition of crooked merely ...

The relevant claim here seems to be the donation. Regarding the other issues: Trump is president. Disaster relief is in his area of responsibility, while Clinton couldn't send FEMA to Puerto Rico if she wanted to. The complaint about Trump is that he acted too little too late, and only in reaction to intense criticism. Displaying this forced reaction as an ...

In 2015, Hillary and Bill Clinton claimed $1,042,000 of contributions to charity. $1,000,000 of that (or 96%) was to the Clinton Family Foundation (Statement 4 of their 2015 tax return). In 2014, the Clinton Family Foundation gave about 1.9 million to the Clinton Foundation. That was about half of what the Clinton Family Foundation gave across all charities ...

The YouTube video claim would require the BBC and other covering media to be in on a hoax. So, often, one looks for evidence that either one of the competing claims is the "fake" one. Neither the BBC, showing the event live, nor the person posting the hoax claim need to fake their videos to explain the footage. It's a matter of misinterpreting data and ...

No. The NYT has a good breakdown of why this claim is inaccurate. Epstein is quoted as saying that the numbers Trump gives are incorrect. The white paper that is the source of the claim Trump is referring to was released in 2017, and in fact states that 2.6 million is the potential number of votes that could be influenced IF Google had actively manipulated ...

This is a popular claim by some members of the right, and, like many political claims, it has some facts right and many facts wrong. Essentially, the State Department declined to label it a terrorist organization at one time, which was before it was nearly as prominent as it was now. At the time, there was little evidence that it posed a serious threat, no ...

It is correct that she represented a rapist. The characterization how she got on that case, what she did, and what she was saying on tape is completely and intentionally wrong, though. Clinton was assigned by the judge to defend after the indigent defendant stated the wish for a female defense attorney. Clinton was recommended by the prosecutor, and then ...

No. https://foreignpolicy.com/2016/08/05/our-nuclear-procedures-are-crazier-than-trump/ The author bases his estimate on information gleaned from a 30-year old book, so it's not exactly new information. Bloomberg also reported on this back in September. About five minutes may elapse from the president’s decision until intercontinental ballistic ...

The first Trump-Clinton Presidential Debate on 26 September 2016 was widely watched and reported. The Washington Post provided a transcript: CLINTON: You know, he tried to switch from looks to stamina. But this is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, who has said... ...

She has expressed those ideas. But I could not find a reliable source for her saying those exact words together. And she certainly didn't say anything of the sort during the 2016 debates which are pictured in the image, so the image is misleading in that respect. (The transcripts are readily available and can be searched.) In a March 2018 interview with ...

Yes, Clinton has self-admittedly been a fan of both clubs for years. We can see from her opponents' view on the issues (obviously painted with a negative slant) that Hillary Clinton has claimed to be a long-time fan of both the Cubs and Yankees. GOP.com (the website of the Republican Party, Clinton's opponent in the elections) claims that (emphasis mine):...

According to a 2015 New York Times Article, At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as ...

On the Issues has an overview over Clinton's position on abortion. She described her position on late-term abortions during the 2016 presidential debate: Roe v. Wade very clearly sets out that there can be regulations on abortion so long as the life and the health of the mother are taken into account. The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy ...

Politifact rated the claim "False" on 19 August 2019. Politifact examined the claim, reaching out to both the author of the paper and other researchers. From Robert Epstein himself - We reached out to Epstein to ask if he took issue with how Trump characterized his findings. "I sure do," said Epstein, who supported Clinton in 2016. "I have never ...
