This post provides additional proof the MSM ONLY reports supposed wrongdoings by politician when it involves a Republican.
According to a report by Peter Schweizer presented in a WSJ piece published on the last day of July 2016 (and released in a report called “From Russia With Money,”) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton oversaw “a major technology transfer initiative” that “may have substantially undermined U.S. national security.” At the time the program was being implemented the FBI warned that Russia purpose in participating in the initiative was to gain access to classified, sensitive, and emerging technology from the is to gain access to classified, sensitive, and emerging technology from the companies. In fact the U.S. Army said the project was simply a “vehicle for world-wide technology transfer to Russia.”
Coincidentally (if you believe in coincidences) the Clinton Family enriched themselves out of the deal.
In his July 2016 report Schweitzer explained that a key program of the “reset” was to help Russia develop its own version of Silicon Valley. Called “Skolkovo” and located near Moscow, it housed technology for developing bio-med, space, nuclear and IT technologies.
“According to leaked U.S. government cables, U.S. State Department officials beginning in 2009 played a substantial role in assisting Russian government entities in accessing U.S. capital and in seeking investments in U.S. high technology companies.”
(…) Skolkovo was launched as “entirely a state project,” in the words of Walter Laqueur writing in Foreign Affairs. There would be housing for 30,000 people, as well as schools, shops, and parks designed by the government. The Russian government pledged to spend some $5 billion over three years to put Skolkovo together. The Russians desired major U.S. tech firms in Skolkovo. A Skolkovo Foundation was established to manage that effort. Ultimately dozens of U.S. tech firms including Cisco, Google, and Intel would make major financial contributions to the project
On first glance the project itself seem benign and possibly a good deal for both sides, the Russians get access to American cash and some of the country’s best technology, the U.S.-based companies, gets access to the Russian market, receive special tax status and “special access to research in Russia. For example, one investment firm received “priority access to the database of the Skolkovo Foundation projects and companies, enabling it to select the most promising projects early in their development.”
(…) however, the state-of-the-art technological research coming out of Skolkovo raised alarms among U.S. military experts and federal law-enforcement officials.Research conducted in 2012 on Skolkovo by the U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Program at Fort Leavenworth declared that the purpose of Skolkovo was to serve as a “vehicle for world-wide technology transfer to Russia in the areas of information technology, biomedicine, energy, satellite and space technology, and nuclear technology.”
That’s right, the Army called Hillary’s project a way for Russia to get the best of world technology…
