The saga of Hillary Rodham Clinton continues to unfold on an unsuspecting American people. Not since the likes of former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, aka Client Number Nine, have we seen such a public meltdown.

Hillary’s plan of self-destruction does not include prostitutes in her background, but there seems to be a bit of almost everything else. She appears to be zealously marching toward her own political execution.

Hillary Clinton has brought this national condemnation down on herself. Her ultimate demise may arise from her demand for a thorough and intensive investigation into purported Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Most Americans would agree it is an appalling thought that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his mafia-style henchmen might interfere with our democratic voting process. There is no doubt she has a point.

The problem is it wasn’t her arch nemesis Donald Trump who was complicit in such efforts, but rather Hillary, husband Bill, and possibly her former boss Barack Obama.

The actual story itself is not new. It has circulated for some time. But now there’s proof. The Hill began reporting the details as far back as 2009, Obama’s first year in office. They wrote, “The FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.”

The mainstream media most certainly was privy to this information. It did not fit their ultimate goal of destroying their nemesis too; Donald Trump. Yet Hillary brought the story of Russian collusion to center stage. Her own ties to Moscow might have never surfaced had the story remained on Trump.

Documents now released indicate the FBI sat on key information for years. They left the American people and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption. This happened while the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

The first decision was the sale in 2010 sale of Uranium One, a company that owned 20 percent of American uranium reserves, to Russia's Atomic Energy Agency, Rosatom.

While this proposed deal awaited approval from CFIUS, an inter-agency group including Hillary’s State Department responsible for reviewing such transactions, husband Bill was paid $500,000 for a single speech to Renaissance Capital, a Kremlin-connected bank.

Bill Clinton, former President of the United States, married to the then-Secretary of State and a co-founder of the charitable Clinton Foundation, had no prior relationship. The speech also earned him a meeting with Vladimir Putin.

That led to Moscow-related entities pouring millions into the Clinton’s charity. There were no investigative reports by any American news agencies whatsoever.

The Uranium One story came to light with Peter Schweizer’s 2015 book "Clinton Cash." It documented Bill and Hillary merrily trading their influence for massive speaking and/or donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Wall Street Journal noted that “… at least 60 companies that lobbied the State Department during Clinton’s tenure donated a total of more than $26 million to the Clinton Foundation.”

Secretary of State Clinton readily agreed to the purchase of Uranium One by Russia’s state nuclear agency. That sale is a pittance to the purported $145 million the Clinton Foundation received, according to The National Review.

These payments were not revealed on the Clinton Foundation website. That was despite an agreement with the Obama administration to do so that was signed by the Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The real story is far seedier. The funds traveled through a mysterious Canadian offshoot, the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative, and therefore escaped notice. It is highly doubtful that more than a few Americans have ever heard of this company.

This encouraged investigators to discover the discredited dossier that sparked multiple investigations into suspected collusion between Donald Trump and Russia. It was all funded by the Clinton for President Campaign Committee.

The campaign paid GPS Fusion to assemble the salacious anti-Trump file. It was used as the rationale to spy on Trump campaign workers and the president himself.

Hillary Clinton’s frantic and very public excuse tour of her failed presidential campaign brought the story to center stage. She wrote the book "What Happened," accusing the Russians of undermining her all-but-certain victory.

Had she not have done this, her ties to Moscow would very likely have continued to be ignored by the mainstream media. Even the most liberal of the media were left with no choice if they wished to continue being called journalists.

Hillary Clinton has become the Democratic Party’s ongoing nightmare. She is sucking up all the oxygen in the room. Her book tour and endless interviews keep her bitterness and anger in the public domain.

The ironic part of all this is the very reason Donald Trump was elected. People are beginning to say that at least they didn’t elect Hillary Clinton. That is enough to put a smile on Trump’s face.
