The Real Russian Influence: Massive Bribery Scheme Before Obama Admin Approved Uranium Sale

Some will claim “this is old news!” Au contraire, it highlights that anyone screeching about Russia Russia Russia in relation to Trump should take a hard look at Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and his administration

(The Hill) 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 Putin’s 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 Clinton’s 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.

This is a long, long article, the kind of investigative journalism that we did not see, for the most part, during the Obama administration. It goes to the sale of the company Uranium one to a Russian company Rosatom, giving Russia a 20% controlling interest in America’s uranium supply. And, under Obama, his FBI refused to bring charges in 2010, instead going on to investigate for another four years. And they still barely did anything.

This is all icing on the cake regarding what Team Obama was doing with Uranium One, and how Hillary, Bill, and their foundation profited heavily from the sale. It shows how Team Obama ignored what the Russians were doing, which had national security implications. But, hey, Russia put some ads on Twitter! Doom!

Meanwhile, the Unhinged Moonbats at Newsweek are still fantasizing about a way to put Hillary in the White House post Trump-Russia investigation.

    If you ever want to know what the left is up to, pay attention to what they accuse the right of. The left always projects, always lies, & always doubles down.

    seems to me that the Clintons and the Democrats were in bed with the Russians not Trump. I mean all you hear about is how Clinton’s whored themselves out for money to the highest bidder. If anyone has the goods on anyone it would be the Clinton’s who would be able to be blackmailed a 1000 times over.

    I suggest its the Democrats and Clinton and Obama that should be investigated not Trump.
