OTD 10 Years Ago: Hillary Clinton Facilitated Disastrous Russian Reset

Independent Women’s Voice reminded followers today it’s been ten years since former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov the infamous “reset” button to help reset U.S.-Russian relations.

Clinton’s team presented Lavrov with a button with the term “peregruzka” (overcharge) instead of “perezaryadka” (recharge). Projecting?

Here’s how their exchange played out:

Clinton: “We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?” she asked.

Lavrov: “You get it wrong. It should be “perezaryadka”, and this says “peregruzka” which means “overcharge.”

Clinton: “We won’t let you do that to us.”

In 2011, the Obama Administration signed a new START II Treaty with Russia to “advance our security, our relations with Russia, and our progress toward a world not imperiled by nuclear weapons.”

On March 26, 2012, then-President Obama pledged to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev in that now famous hot mic incident he’ll have more flexibility after the November elections.

Obama and Democrats also mocked 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for boasting a Cold War attitude about Russia when the latter rightly accused the nation of being our biggest geopolitical foe.

It was revealed in 2015 that $145M from interests tied to Uranium One flowed to the Clinton Foundation during then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s tenure.

The question beckons: Which party is actually colluding and has historically colluded with Russians? The evidence suggests it’s not Republicans. Hmmm.
