Uranium One is that pesky deal that has questions that first surfaced in 2015 about payments to both Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation from “interested parties.” It just won’t go away.
An Obama-era deal that gave Russia partial control of the U.S. uranium supply has given light to the possibility of a new investigation. The White House is in favor of the Justice Department’s examination of the deal.
On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters, “If the attorney general feels there’s a need for that investigation, he should absolutely look into that and obviously he sees cause for it.”
Sanders was reacting to a report that DOJ prosecutors are now pressing FBI agents about a prior probe related to the Uranium One deal.
Yes, that same deal which Republicans have criticized over alleged links to the Clintons. Apparently, agents are being asked to explain the evidence they found and whether there was any “improper effort” to stop a prosecution.
Renewed inspection, for example, of a $500,000 fee that Bill Clinton collected from a Russian investment bank for a June 2010 speech has Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, raising eyebrows. Grassley wrote in an October letter that the bank’s senior officers include former Russian intelligence personnel, and the company has been described as an “extension” of the Russian government.
Grassley wrote also, “Notably, in the same month as the Clinton speech, Uranium One and Rosatom notified CFIUS of the Russian government’s intent to acquire twenty percent of the United States’ uranium assets. The next month, in July 2010, Renaissance Bank reportedly assigned Uranium One a ‘buy’ rating, a move that would principally benefit its Russian investors. The donations raise concerns about potential conflicts of interest for Secretary Clinton and the Obama administration.”
This video gives a look into the concerns.
Digging into money matters of the company reveal they also donated a reported $145 million to the Clinton Foundation. It’s murky whether any of that was connected to the deal.
I tend to see it more clearly. The Clinton Foundation is drowning in dishonesty.
A key figure claims he sold his stake in the company years earlier. We have to wait and see who this is.
In words we’ve come to distinguish as coming from Hillary Clinton, she said, “it’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.”
Clinton also said that these issues are just part of the “distraction and diversion” from the investigation into Russian meddling and possible coordination with Trump associates in last year’s election.
Well, I say there is no Russian collusion with Trump and his administration with Russia but the Clintons are stuck in the middle of the Foundation, uranium, money and Russia.
Let justice be served.
