A new animated ad, inspired by the New York Times best-selling Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel, shows how then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped transfer 20 percent of America’s uranium stockpile to the Russian government.
Hillary was officially in Russia to negotiate Putin’s plans to build nuclear plants in Iran. “‘All in’ meant Russia’s desire to corner the world uranium market,” a narrator says in the one-minute Clinton Cash ad titled, “Hillary’s Reset,” obtained exclusively by Breitbart News. “And the price for the Secretary of State’s compliance? One hundred and forty-five million paid to the Clinton Foundation.”
Indeed, as first reported in Clinton Cash, Clinton’s State Department was one of nine agencies to approve the sale of Uranium One to the Russian government. “The sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States,” the New York Times reported.
The Times also published a detailed infographic, which cataloged the $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation made by executives connected to the company involved in the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia’s government.
This latest Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel animated ad came just a week after the first promotional video which premiered earlier this month.
The graphic novel was always meant to convey the fact-based reporting found in Clinton Cash “in a way that makes it accessible to people who don’t have time to sit down and read a serious nonfiction book,” Clinton Cash author and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer told Fox & Friends in a recent interview.
“I think millennials love this sort of approach because it’s humorous,” Schweizer said. “They put in humor. It’s a lot of great visual images.”
Comic book illustrator Brett R. Smith, the artistic mind behind Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel, called the best-selling book “the most subversive foray into pop culture the right has ever attempted.”
“The Right has not lost the culture war. The Right has almost ceded the culture war by not engaging, and I really wanted to use the Left’s weapons back on them,” Smith said in August on Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM radio.
“It’s payback time. They don’t own pop culture. They don’t own it all. They don’t own that territory, and we need to start taking it back,” he said. “Jon Stewart just signed a four-year deal with HBO. He’s got an animation studio geared up. He’s got 3-D graphics cranking. We need to start fighting fire with fire and show up to the gunfight with a flamethrower.”
Last month, the novel hit #1 on the New York Times graphic novel bestsellers list, according to data released by the Times’s book review.
