(PRIMER) WHAT IS THE URANIUM ONE SCANDAL?

The FBI and various congressional commissions have been conducting investigations into corruption, fraud and so called pay-for-play scandals related to the Clinton Foundation. More on www.CharlesOrtel.com. See also "Clinton Cash". Wikileaks handy ebook in reader format. Explosive news about the Uranium One scandal is breaking on a daily basis.

UPDATE: Former prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy is giving us the primer on the Uranium One scandal. Commentary added by @Imperator_Rex.
Not only the Clintons are implicated in a uranium deal with the Russians that compromised national-security interests. Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.  (...) the staggering $500,000 payday from a Kremlin-tied Russian bank for a single speech was part of a multi-million-dollar influence-peddling scheme to enrich the former president and his wife, then–secretary of state Hillary Clinton. At the time, Russia was plotting — successfully — to secure U.S. government approval for its acquisition of Uranium One, and with it, tens of billions of dollars in U.S. uranium reserves. 
Here’s the kicker: The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal. The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their “public service.” The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.

Remember, Putin's strategy was to gain control of the domestic US uranium market. He did this via Rosatom's acquisition of U1 & by a system of kickbacks, bribery & extortion within the US uranium market via a company called 'Tenam'. Tenam is owned by Tenex, which is owned by Rosatom. Tenex was formed in the 1990s, when the US government was granted the rights by Moscow to purchase uranium from Russia's depleted warheads. Tenam was based in Maryland. So - Putin was given access to (i) US uranium reserves & (ii) the domestic uranium market. He could bring US uranium into Russia, or sell US uranium worldwide. 
The Obama administration KNEW about this the whole time. We know this because the FBI had been watching Tenam via a tip off. Congress & CFIUS were NOT informed of this as they considered the U1 deal, approved in October 2010. They were NOT informed of the $2.35 million that had flowed from U1 to the Clinton Foundation. The deal was approved in Oct 2010 & Putin was handed the keys to the uranium kingdom. Had Obama & HRC disclosed everything they knew, there's no way this deal would have been approved. The suggestions she didn't know is a LIE. She knew full well what Bill was up to, because she'd seen it done before - in Khazakstan. Also as the #1 US official in charge of the Russia-US reset, she MUST have been aware of Putin's objectives. One word at CFIUS or from her as SoS and the deal would have been nixed. She stayed silent the whole time. As did Obama, Lynch & Mueller. Why? They were DRUNK on power & certain they'd never lose it. In other words, like most crooks - they thought they'd get away with it. nd Putin had Obama & the Clintons totally compromised. All this time, he'd also been infiltrating Hillary's team with a sophisticated spy network. I've no doubt they were able to gain access to highly classified material from Clinton & Co. So there you have it. Russian collusion with the Clintons & naive Obama compromised, with an American public hoodwinked. Putin able to control, buy & sell US uranium for whatever strategic interest he liked. All aimed at weakening the USA. And at the centre of it all, Hillary & Bill Clinton. And their rotten Foundation. And guess what? Trump KNOWS & has set these suckers up, including Mueller & Rosenstein. They are going DOWN. Bigly. Heads MUST roll. The scandal is staggering, far greater than anything we have seen in US history. uckle up, folks. The storm is coming.

RUSSIAN COLLUSION INVOLVES OBAMA DOJ AND FBI


John Solomon of Circa News writing for The Hill reported on Tuesday that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery, extortion and money laundering scheme in 2009 to seize control over the U.S. energy market. The FBI sat on the investigation for four years while two deals went through with Russia doing exactly what Putin wanted. One of those deals was the sale of the U.S. uranium mine and with it, 20% of U.S. uranium.

The other deal gave Russia leverage over the U.S. energy market. The DoJ and the FBI were fully involved, including Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Bob Mueller, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, the Clintons, and others. The investigation was supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, the current Deputy Attorney General, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who is now the deputy FBI director.

Rosenstein and Mueller also sat on the CFIUS committee that approved the sale of 20% of US uranium reserves to Russia despite knowing Russia had bribed the Clintons for the illicit sale. They did not notify anyone of the investigation, including Ron Hosko, the assistant FBI director in charge of criminal cases and Rep. Mike Rodgers, who chaired the House Intelligence Committee during the time the FBI probe was being conducted. They covered it up. (More



⏩ An American businessman who worked for years undercover as an FBI confidential witness was blocked by the Obama Justice Department from telling Congress about conversations and transactions he witnessed related to the Russian nuclear industry's efforts to win favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton and influence Obama administration decisions, his lawyer tells The Hill.

Attorney Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday she is working with members of Congress to see if they can get the Trump Justice Department or the FBI to free her client to talk to lawmakers. “All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said in an interview Tuesday. “And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, 'This is wrong. What should I do about it?'” (More)


⏩ Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley asked the attorney of a former FBI informant Wednesday to allow her client to testify before his committee regarding the FBI's investigation regarding kickbacks and bribery by the Russian state controlled nuclear company that was approved to purchase twenty percent of United States uranium supply in 2010, Circa has learned.

In a formal letter, Grassley, an Iowa Republican, asked Victoria Toensing, the lawyer representing the former FBI informant, to allow her client, who says he worked as a voluntary informant for the FBI, to be allowed to testify about the "crucial" eyewitness testimony he provided to the FBI regarding members of the Russian subsidiary and other connected players from 2009 until the FBI's prosecution of the defendants in 2014.

Democrat disinformation

While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration. The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow’s hacking of Democratic Party computers. Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion GPS distributed the dossier among Democrats and journalists. The information fell into the hands of the FBI, which used it in part to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign aides. Mr. Steele makes clear that his unproven charges came almost exclusively from sources linked to the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He identified his sources as “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure,” a former “top level Russian intelligence officer active inside the Kremlin,” a “senior Kremlin official” and a “senior Russian government official.” (More)

UPDATE ON CLINTON CORRUPTION INVESTIGATIONS




Aug 18, 2016 The Clinton Foundation has been linked to all sorts of illegal activity, from bribes to money laundering, which is now under FBI investigation. More on www.CharlesOrtel.com. See also "Clinton Cash".

Although AP has set off a tsunami of articles on the Clinton corruption in the mainstream media, true to character they're also ruthlessly attacking the messenger in an attempt to discredit Wikileaks. It isn't the first time, by the way. IBTimes has an update on the various investigations; while Breitbart has a list of eleven establishment outlets and journalists urging the Clintons either to shutter the Foundation or pass off its assets to some other unaffiliated nonprofit.
