Mitt Romney Comes Right Out And Says It: There Is "Every Appearance That Hillary Clinton Was Bribed

From the Business Insider:
Mitt Romney held nothing back when he was asked about a recent wave of allegations that hit Hillary Clinton's family foundation on Thursday. 
In an interview on the Hugh Hewitt Show, Romney said one of the reports about the Clinton family's charitable organization details something that "looks like bribery."  
"You know, I’ve got to tell you, I was stunned by it. I mean, it looks like bribery," Romney said.  
The donor, Frank Giustra, gave more than $30 million to the Clinton Foundation following a 2005 trip he took to Kazakhstan with Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton. 
The visit included a sit-down with the autocratic Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev. Days after the meeting with Nazarbayev, one of Giustra's companies inked a deal to buy into uranium deposits owned by Kazakhstan's state-owned nuclear company Kazatomprom. 
The company later became known as Uranium One and acquired several US uranium mines. During Hillary Clinton's time at the State Department, that agency gave its approval when Russia's state nuclear corporation purchased a stake in Uranium One. The company has since been acquired by the Russian corporation, Rosatom.   
Romney pointed to this situation and a New York Times reporter who has claimed President Bill Clinton and Giustra falsely denied attending a meeting with a Kazakh nuclear executive. 
He also referred to the questions about emails Clinton deleted from her time as secretary of state. Romney suggested these situations exacerbated the problems with the Clinton family's donations from Uranium One investors. 
"I mean, there is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of, what, 20% of America’s uranium production to Russia, and then it was covered up by lying about a meeting at her home with the principals, and by erasing emails. 


Vote for Hillary
There's only circumstantial evidence she sold America's uranium stockpiles to Russia, "no smoking gun" yet
