U.S. authorities have charged a Maryland businessman with bribing a Russian official in an effort to win contracts to ship uranium to the United States.

U.S. prosecutors unsealed money laundering, foreign bribery and wire fraud charges against Mark Lambert, 54, in federal court in Greenbelt, Maryland, on Friday.

Lambert denies the allegations and plans to fight them in court, his attorney William Sullivan said during a pre-trial hearing.

Prosecutors allege Lambert, former co-president of a Maryland-based shipping company Transport Logistics International (TLI), bribed a Russian energy official through a series of shell companies in Cyprus, Latvia and Switzerland in exchange for contracts to ship nuclear fuel to U.S. utilities.Lambert denies the allegations and plans to fight them in court, his attorney William Sullivan said during a pre-trial hearing.

So, we sell uranium to Russia, they process it into fuel and sell it back to us at a profit—plus graft.

As much as I want to see her dance on the end of a rope for Vince Foster, I really want her caught for this.

This is from Sessions. This is U1. Has been in the works for a year.

Note that this U1 related guy was INDICTED some time ago, but this was only unsealed today.

But, “Sessions isn’t doing anything.”

This is probably a George Webb topic, IIRC.

There is a rat-line somewhere.

The Clinton Crime Family/Syndicate has gotten away with too much for too long. The odds are against them. This might be it.

1. Thank you very much for the ping!

2. The source doesn’t seem to be provided, which immediately brings this “report” into question. Please correct me if this is wrong, but screen caps on Twitter are often designed to deceive just as much as they may prove accurate.

3. Sessions doesn’t appear to have anything to do with this. The agents mentioned are all at a far lower level, and DOJ agents typically work autonomously.

4. The charge appears to be that an American was bribing a Russian, not a Russian bribing an American, does it not? Not clear why that would be, but anything that was adversely affecting national security would more likely be a Russian bribing an American.

5. I truly hope this is evidence that the DOJ is actually starting to arrest people for Uranium One. But considering the source, chances are it’s not what they claim it is.

Way too heavily invested in your Sessions hate, you are.

Maybe she will get busted, face justice, and then "do the right thing"...(as Tom Lantos said to Craig Livingstone) "At least Admiral Boorda had the decency to commit suicide".

Rope is good.
