Posted on 10/17/2017 4:10:19 PM PDT by jazusamo
In 2009 Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted more control over U.S. nuclear capability and the Clintons helped him get there.
According to a bombshell report published today in The Hill the corruption surrounding the sale of Uranium One when President Obama was in the White House, which overwhelmingly and personally benefited former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, was far worse than we first knew and the FBI documented all of it. Bolding is mine:
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.
Under her watch at the State Department, Secretary Hillary Clinton benefited from the Russian government increasing its power inside the U.S. nuclear program and allowed it to happen. She then denied knowing anything about it on the campaign trial and resented allegations she used her position at the State Department for personal gain. Russian nuclear officials were paying her husband millions through shady back channels and by default, they were paying her too.
It should be noted that although former FBI Director James Comey declared the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server to transmit top secret information over in 2016, we heard nothing about the FBI's investigation into the Clinton Foundation being finished.

None dare call it treason.
Amen to that!
AG Sessions will get right on the indictment of the Clintons... just as soon as medical science perfects a brain transplant.
How much did Russia pay for 20% of our highly enriched uranium?
How much did they contribute to the Clinton Foundation and is this something they historically did? Any idea on a timeline? How much did they directly pay to Bill?
The FBI was conducting an investigation of the Russians that were trying to buy the uranium. From what I understand, some were convicted of bribery. What happened to them?
This gambit by Bill Clinton (meddling in a foreign election) got the Russian uranium takeover scheme going. Bill's calculated handshake was a bonanza for the Kazahk president's re-election. Nazarbayev responded in kind and signed-off on the initial phase of the US uranium assets takeover.

NOTE Kazakh is remembered as the last state to peel off from the USSR.
CIRCA 2015 A Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter claims that former President Bill Clinton falsely denied hosting a meeting with Kazakh officials when she tried to write a story that involved his foundation several years ago.
Jo Becker, who works on the newspaper's investigative desk, said Clinton only confirmed the meeting took place after she informed him there were photographs.
Clinton's role in a deal that involved Kazakhstan, the Russian government, and a man (Giustra) who donated millions to the president's charitable foundation were detailed in a story Becker published on Thursday.
That article revisited some of her earlier reporting and included information from the upcoming book "Clinton Cash," which is generating widespread headlines amid a flurry of reports suggesting it will raise serious questions about Clinton's family foundation.
The donor in question is Canadian mining executive Frank Giustra, a longtime friend of the former president who has given tens of millions to the Clinton Foundation in the past few years. (A couple of hours after the NYT story was published, Giustra issued a defiant statement. We've included that below.)
Becker initially wrote about the February 2007 meeting between Clinton, Giustra, and executives from the state-owned nuclear company Kazatomprom in 2008. The gathering took place at Clinton's home in Chappaqua, New York.
"When I first contacted both the Clinton foundation Mr. Clinton's spokesman and Mr. Giustra, they denied any such meeting ever took place," Becker recalled in footage aired by Fox News on Thursday. However, Becker said Clinton and Giustra both changed their stories after she confronted them with evidence to the contrary.
"And then when we told them, 'Well we already talked to the head of Kazatomprom, who not only told us all about the meeting, but actually has a picture of him and Bill at the home in Chappaqua, and that he proudly displayed on his office wall.' They then acknowledged that yes, the meeting had taken place," Becker continued in the television interview.
The purpose of the meeting, then Kazatomprom President Moukhtar Dzhakishev told The Times, was to discuss Kazakhstan potentially buying a 10% stake in Westinghouse, a US nuclear company. Becker's 2008 story also noted one of Giustra's companies secured a deal to buy uranium deposits from Kazatomprom in 2005.
That agreement was made after Clinton accompanied Giustra on a trip to Kazakhstan. During the trip, Giustra and Clinton met with Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
Clinton issued a public statement praising the Kazakh leader despite his questionable, antidemocratic record. The Times called the praise a "propaganda coup" for Nazarbayev. (he later "won relection" w/ an unbelievable 90% of the vote)
"Just months after the Kazakh pact was finalized, Mr. Clinton's charitable foundation received its own windfall: a $31.3 million donation from Mr. Giustra that had remained a secret until he acknowledged it last month. The gift, combined with Mr. Giustras more recent and public pledge to give the William J. Clinton Foundation an additional $100 million, secured Mr. Giustra a place in Mr. Clintons inner circle," wrote Becker and another reporter, Don Van Natta.
A spokesperson for the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership told Business Insider they are "working on a formal statement" in response to a request for comment on Thursday. Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership is an initiative of the Clinton Foundation that was cofounded by Clinton and Giustra in 2007. A Clinton Foundation spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
If only Jeff Sessions knew...
The NYT report noted that these uranium investors also donated to the Clinton Foundation, as follows:
<><> Canadian mining mogul, Frank Giustra, globe-trotting pal of Bill donated $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more to the Clinton Foundation. Giustra built a company that later merged with Uranium One. Seems to have facilitated the uranium sell-off. Giustra has a “Clinton-connected foundation” in Canada and will not disclose donors.
<><> Canadian Ian Telferdonated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. Mining investor who was chairman of Uranium One when an arm of the Russian government, Rosatom, acquired it.
<><>Paul Reynoldsdonated $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation Adviser on 2007 UrAsia-Uranium One merger. Later Reynolds helped raise $260 million for the company. Could be the money-laundering apprat.
<><>Frank Holmes-donated $250,000 to $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Chief Executive of U.S. Global Investors Inc., which held $4.7 million in Uranium One shares in the first quarter of 2011.
<><> Canadian Neil Woodyer-Founded Endeavour Mining with Giustradonated $50,000 to $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Adviser to Uranium One.
<><> GMP Securities Ltd.-Donating portion of profits to the Clinton Foundation. Worked on debt issue that raised $260 million for Uranium One. (Prime candidate for the money-laundering apparat-—aided and abetted under cover of the “do-good foundations.”)
Who paid Bill Clinton’s $2.5 million commission and $500k speaking fee by a Moscow bank for brokering the sale of 20% of America’s uranium deposits to Russia...giving Vladimir Putin and the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States?
But, but, but don't you know that Sessions is working on a Super Secret indictment.
They're trying to deflect this story.
From what I understand, Sara Carter was going to break the Russian/Clinton uranium collusion story today but the Hill may have gotten wind and didn’t want to wait.
I believe this story may be the tick tock and Boom!!! stories Hannity has been referring to.
The Hill is left leaning media. Did they want to dump this story first to help control the narrative?
>>Pictured: two of the most evil and corrupt individuals ever to set foot in the white house.<<
We should always make this fact a subject of conversation whenever and wherever we have the opportunity.
Wonder why President Trump and his invisible AG are not seeking indictments of these obvious felons? Regardless of how successful Trump is in MAGA, if he does not have them indicted, he will forever be suspected of complicity in allowing them to escape justice.
I’ve no doubt you are correct.
As Secretary of State Hillary was not only a corrupt liar but a traitor.
>>As Secretary of State Hillary was not only a corrupt liar but a traitor.<<
Apparently everyone on the planet is aware of this fact except President Trump and his invisible AG!
Probably so, The Hill are definitely lefties.
Im beyond trying to explain Sessions malfeasance. What deeply troubles me is the fact that Trump hasnt replaced the AG as these rat felonies cascade over Washington.
