NYT Reporter: Clinton Officials Lied About a Meeting Taking Place, Unaware of Photo Evidence


In a Fox News preview of “The Tangled Clinton Web,” a New York Times reporter accused the Clinton Foundation of lying to her about a meeting Bill Clinton had with Kazatomprom officials regarding the sale of uranium to Russia.

“Frank Giustra arranged for officials to go to Bill Clinton’s house in Chappaqua,” reporter Jo Becker said.

“When I first contacted the Clinton Foundation, they denied any such meeting ever took place. And when we told them we have already talked to the head, who not only told us all about the meeting but actually has a picture of him and Bill at the home, that he proudly displays on his office wall, they then acknowledge the meeting had taken place.”

Becker’s scathing report based off of allegations in the book Clinton Cash found that the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars in return for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approving the transaction of American uranium into Russian hands.

The New York Times, Fox News, and other media outlets have arranged an exclusive agreement to report on the stories referred to in Clinton Cash. The Clinton Foundation remains under a mountain of scandal accusations that will only get worse as more reports are sure to be filed in the coming weeks offering more examples of the Clintons’ blurred lines while in power.
