Feds File First Russian Uranium-Linked Indictment: Bribery, Money Laundering, Kickbacks

The founder and owner of Frederick’s Dragon Distillery was indicted Friday for his alleged role in bribing a Russian atomic energy official to win government contracts for the company he formerly co-owned.

Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, faces 11 charges including violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and wire fraud, according to a U.S. Department of Justice statement released Friday.

“We categorically reject the charges and are eager to dispute and defeat them in court,” William M. Sullivan Jr., attorney for Lambert, said in an email Friday.

Lambert, who owns Dragon Distillery in Frederick, is the former co-president, along with Daren Condrey, of a Maryland-based nuclear fuel transportation company. The company, referred to as Transportation Company A in the indictment, provided logistical support for transporting nuclear materials in the United States and to foreign clients.

In the indictment unsealed Friday, prosecutors allege that Lambert and others concealed corrupt and fraudulent payments with fake invoices, offshore bank accounts and shell companies in Latvia, Cyprus and Switzerland, the release states.

Authorities believe that from at least 2009 to October 2014 Lambert and other company executives conspired to bribe Vadim Mikerin, an official at the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation subsidiary JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), in order to secure contracts for transporting nuclear fuel, according to the Justice Department release.

TENEX, which supplies uranium and uranium enrichment services to international companies, wholly owned a U.S.-based company called TENAM Corporation, according to the indictment.

Nah.

This isn't the first time the DOJ has indicted some low level schlub outside of government, on charges related to Uranium dealing.

The last time Rosenstein was the prosecutor. This time he's the Deputy AG and perhaps the acting AG.

He’s only 54, could enjoy many more years ahead of him... if he’s willing to talk. I hope he does.

Maybe, but 1.2 million pages is a lot of ink for one truck driver.

.That is, unless they come from the Arlo Guthrie school of criminal investigation, and have a whole lotta pictures with circle and arrows, and paragraphs upon paragraphs on the back of each one.

(We're talking boxes of paragraphs)

It’s going all the way to the top. The corrupt left-wing media will have to cover this story eventually.

Bigger than Watergate.

"Feds File First Russian Uranium-Linked Indictment: Bribery, Money Laundering, Kickbacks"

Is this what the current Trump/Vulgarity scandal smokescreen was intended to cover up?

Which looks to be more than just a truck driver caught in the net.
