On Monday, Hillary Clinton’s presidential team launched its official campaign against my newly released book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich (HarperCollins). The Hillary team dubbed their latest effort — complete with a new “rapid-response” website, videos, memos, social media campaigns — “The Briefing.”

As part of these unprecedented efforts, Hillary Clinton’s campaign press secretary Brian Fallon raised eyebrows Tuesday when he released a heavily edited, first-person two minute-and-thirty-seven second video awkwardly attacking the mainstream media’s confirmation of newly revealed facts reported in Clinton Cash.

The Clinton campaign’s fear over Clinton Cash is apparent in the opening seconds of the Hillary video, wherein Fallon claims, “the book is being debunked far and wide,” an odd claim that raises an obvious question: “Why, then, does the Hillary campaign feel the need to launch a two-and-a-half minute video on it — as well as a new website to combat it?”

Bizarrely, Fallon then goes on to challenge revelations from the book that national media outlets like the New York TimesWashington PostBloomberg, and the Wall Street Journal have already confirmed are accurate, verified, and true.

“The author wants you to believe that Hillary tried to reward Clinton Foundation donors by getting our government to approve the sale of a [uranium] mining company to Russia in 2010. That’s just dead wrong,” saidFallon.

“And as for Hillary Clinton herself, she made no recommendation to the committee whatsoever on the sale. Not as Senator. Not as Secretary of State. Not ever!”

However, in a 4,000-word, front-page New York Times article by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Jo Becker and Mike McIntire, the Timesconfirms that, in fact, Hillary’s foundation hid a secret $2.35 million foreign donation from the head of the Russian government’s uranium company, Ian Telfer, as the transfer of 20% of all U.S. uranium to the Russians was pending before then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton’s department — a direct violation of the memorandum of understanding Sec. Clinton signed with the Obama White House.

Even more damaging is this fact, confirmed by the New York Times and Clinton Cash: Hillary’s foundation received $145 million in donations from nine financiers and investors involved in the uranium deal — and Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a single speech in Moscow paid for by a Kremlin-backed bank.

“Why was Bill Clinton taking any money from a bank linked to the Kremlin while his wife was Secretary of State?” asked the New Yorker magazine.
