GOP Lawmaker: Rod Rosenstein Possibly Under Investigation For Supervising Uranium One Deal
Gateway Pundit ^ | April 16, 2018 | Josh Caplan

A Texas Republican said that it’s possible that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is currently under investigation for his role in supervising a Justice Department and FBI probe into the sale of Uranium One to a Russian company during the Obama administration.

In an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Rep. Louis Gohmert also said he would have no problem “impeaching” Rosenstein because he’s a “problem.”

“Rosenstein could very well be under investigation. There is a full investigation into Uranium-One, which he supervised, which he soft-peddled to allow Hillary to get her colleagues to approve the sale of uranium to Russia through Uranium-One,” he said.

“So, I have no problem with impeaching Rosenstein. He is a problem. He needs to step down. But, he’s not going to because he’s got to cover for himself and for Mueller in the Uranium investigation.”

Earlier reports noted that prior to the Obama administration’s approval of the controversial deal in 2010, which gave Russia control over 20 percent of all strategic U.S. uranium reserves, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were getting kickbacks and were involved in bribery, extortion, and money laundering in order to benefit President Vladimir Putin.

The investigation was supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rosenstein, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who has since been fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for lying repeatedly to investigators and department officials. Current special counsel Robert Mueller was head of the FBI at the time as well and even hand-delivered a uranium sample to Russia before the deal was finalized, The Gateway Pundit reported, citing various sources.

“While he was Maryland’s chief federal prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office failed to interview the undercover informant in the FBI’s Russian nuclear bribery case before it filed criminal charges in the case in 2014, officials told The Hill,” reports John Solomon.

As reported by political operative Dick Morris, writing in The Western Journal, the attorney for FBI informant William D. Campbell said her client informed congressional committees that the Russians “bragged that [Bill and Hillary Clinton’s) influence in the Obama administration would ensure CIFUS (Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States) approval for the Uranium One deal.”

According to an FBI informant in the case, President Obama was briefed at least twice but failed to stop the deal.

In October the informant, identified as William Campbell, came forward with details of a story of backroom dealing and quid-pro-quo arrangements involving several Obama administration figures along with Bill and Hillary Clinton.

FBI agents in the Little Rock, Ark., office have reportedly interviewed Campbell, a key witness in the Uranium One deal, as they continue investigating alleged corruption involving the Clinton’s foundation.

According to investigative reporter Sara A. Carter, Victoria Toensing, an attorney representing Williams — who spent more than six years undercover collecting information about the Russian energy and uranium market — disclosed the information in a letter seeking retraction of an article by The Hill on Thursday that was based solely on a Democrat memo that attacked Williams’ credibility.

Yep, there is a lot going on that we don’t know about. What a tangled mess.

I really like Louie Gohmert, but I don’t know why he and others feel it necessary to make statements like this.

And that there is the problem Luis. He's not going to step down because he's got to cover for himself and Mueller on U1 and for himself and others on FISA abuses.

McCain and his GF will make sure he is never charged.
They need the DNC to give them cover from their involvement in passing information to the Democrats for the last 20 years.

Why wouldn’t Gomert bring these possibilities to the street level?

It is increasingly tiring that the speculation and the leaks and the issues is confined to the Beltway hall ways, for the Media Complex to turn into more NeverTrump story lines.

The Arkansas investigation into URANIUM 1 and the Clinton Foundation is ongoing. That loss to Russia of 20% of our uranium production has to be inspecting what the arguments were to have consummated such a deal, in the name of profit to the USA (or for political profit for the Clinton Crime Family).

Apparently the only legal oversight was the Executive Branch and the FBI, at the time under Rosenstein and the ever Hillary supporter, McCabe.

So the Treasonist crook that hand delivered Uranium to the Russians was appointed to Investigate Trump’s possible collusion with Russia?

Perhaps the Just-Us Department should have appointed Hillary to look into the Clinton Globull Initiative.

These kinds of shenanigans are what Hillary knew would result in her henchmen swinging.

Sessions said he had full confidence in Rosenstein. Worth a bash?

I hear what you are saying and I too get tired of hearing all the “factual” innuendo and spin from the media and beltway that is always negative to Trump. However, I would much prefer that conservatives and non-Rhino Republicans deal in facts not more opinions and “I think” type of discussions. They have enough real facts to use. That’s all I am saying.
