Romney ‘stunned’ by new Hillary scandal: This is ‘very, very serious . . . looks like bribery’

Normally diplomatic-to-a-fault Mitt Romney let loose on President Obama’s first secretary of state Thursday. “There is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed,” said the former GOP presidential nominee.

Romney told radio host Hugh Hewitt that the New York Times piece, documenting the flow of cash to the Clintons after Hillary Clinton approved a deal giving the Russians access to an estimated 20 percent of America’s uranium reserves, astounded him.

“You know, I’ve got to tell you, I was stunned by it,” Romney told Hewitt. “I mean, it looks like bribery.”

Then he got to specifics.

“I mean, there is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of, what, 20 percent of America’s uranium production to Russia, and then it was covered up by lying about a meeting at her home with the principals, and by erasing emails,” Romney explained.

“And you know, I presume we might know for sure whether there was or was not bribery if she hadn’t wiped out thousands of emails,” the former Massachusetts governor said before repeating, “But this is a very, very serious series of facts, and it looks like bribery.”

These accusations from a guy who couldn’t find anything bad to say about Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid after Reid accused Romney of not paying income taxes for years.

His remarks elicited the inevitable, “if only we could do a 2012 do-over.”
