No, that's not the entire narrative. Another narrative that is being openly expressed in conservative media is that selling uranium to the Russians is treason. Brietak pointed out that uranium can't be moved out of the country and you countered that the Russians cannot be trusted, ergo continuing the narrative that Russian ownership of uranium mines is under-handed. I figured you would try to skate on the narrow meaning of your statement, but in context it's just trying to keep the story of a possible nuclear threat going. You are a crafty liar, but a liar nonetheless. :lol:

It' not 10 years ago, it's over the last 10 years. Then Trump hired him. Why Manafort? Is this just another example of Trump's bad judgment? How did he come to hire this guy?

Yes, That is the narrative and it will continue to be. You can imagine all you want it won't change the facts. Russia doesn't follow laws. They don't care who gets run over in their quests. They can smuggle yellowcake easy as the bricks of meth that cross the border. You stick to your story and keep your beak buried in the sand.

So if they don't need it why did they buy it? I'll wait for your theory on the purchase. Also I would like to know how my story about not trusting Russians collapsed. Do you trust them? In either event, I'm still interested in the story the informant has to tell about the corruption in the deal.

Not trusting Russians was not your story, it was an inadequate response to Breitak.

One of the few economic sectors that the Russians have engagement, and some power, is energy. This has always been true. Their desire to expand uranium holdings is just one aspect of that engagement. They were pursuing market share based on their belief that nuclear power was on the rise.

It's just business. Nothing more.
