Skip to comments.[Flashback] FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama admin. approved nuclear deal with Moscow
Posted on 11/18/2017 9:44:10 AM PST by mojito
Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putins atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account backed by documents indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clintons charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The racketeering scheme was conducted with the consent of higher level officials in Russia who shared the proceeds from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.
Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putins commercial nuclear ambitions.

Yes, the FBI knew about the kickbacks and guess who was the FBI director at the time? Mueller!
She isn’t known as Crooked Hillary for nothing.
This is just the start of the giant snowball that is going to eventually flatten Hillary.
It's taking Holder, Lynch and Mueller down too.
Mr, Mueller did you allow such collusion?
Mr. Mueller what did you do to stop said collusion?
Mr. Mueller, since you did nothing to stop said collusion, it is apparent that you are part of said collusion and need to be indicted. You must resign as SC.
If Mueller went forward with the charges during the reign of zero, I do not think it would have seen the light of day.
Lynch, her predecessor (mr just us hisself), the media and zero's personal flak takers would have endlessly paraded out in from of media to poo poo and discredit any such attempt before it got out of the lips of the announcers.
ALL “too big to jail” I fear.
What I want to know is did the bush regime know about the uranium? This all started in 2005.
“The investigation was ultimately supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who now serves as President Trumps deputy attorney general, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, now the deputy FBI director under Trump, Justice Department documents show.
Both men now play a key role in the current investigation into possible, but still unproven, collusion between Russia and Donald Trumps campaign during the 2016 election cycle. McCabe is under congressional and Justice Department inspector general investigation in connection with money his wifes Virginia state Senate campaign accepted in 2015 from now-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe at a time when McAuliffe was reportedly under investigation by the FBI."
Suitcases of cash!
Cant wait to see the video of that Monday.
Democrats will be running from the mention of the word Russian after Monday.
Will die with Mueller and Mcabe. YAWN. lets here more about the Dem Wave starting with Alabama through 2018. /msm-off
Ecclesiastes 10:8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him. 9 Whoso removeth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered thereby.
They almost certainly did. Drain the swamp.
McCabe should be fired just because I don't like his mug.
Important story, but it’s a month old.
Gotta hand it to “The Hill” — they are making a real effort to be investigative journalists.
In other words:
The Entire Administration and the Justice Department, including the FBI are ALL CORRUPT and Committed HIGH TREASON by selling out the National Security of the United States to RUSSIA.
did I get that right?
