The media loves to speculate that President Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia, but they’ve refused to cover similar allegations with the Clintons.

News broke Tuesday that the FBI allegedly buried evidence tying the Clinton Foundation to a Russian bribery scheme related to U.S. uranium reserves. According to reports, the FBI had evidence dating back as early as 2009 that indicated Russian nuclear officials were giving kickbacks to the Clinton Foundation while then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that approved a uranium deal with a state-owned Russian company.  (REPORT: FBI Sat On Evidence Tying The Clintons To A Russian Bribery Scheme) 

 The story was apparently too unimportant to be covered by the “big three” broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, as they all refused to spend airtime on it Tuesday. The Media Research Center notes that over the course of two years, those networks have only given three minutes to the Clinton Foundation’s ties to Russia.
