    Russia Routed Millions to Influence Clinton in Uranium Deal, Informant Tells Congress

    Moscow routed millions of dollars to the U.S. expecting the funds would benefit ex-President Bill Clinton’s charitable initiative while his wife, Hillary Clinton, worked to reset relations with Russia, an FBI informant in an Obama administration-era uranium deal stated.
    .
    In a written statement to three congressional committees, informant Douglas Campbell said Russian nuclear executives told him that Moscow hired American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide to influence Hillary Clinton, then secretary of state, among others in the Obama administration, The Hill reported on Wednesday.
    .
    Campbell said Russian nuclear officials expected APCO to apply its $3 million annual lobbying fee from Moscow toward the Clintons’ Global Initiative. The contract detailed four $750,000 payments over a year’s time.
    .
    “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement,” Campbell stated.
    .
    The so-called Uranium One deal in 2010 handed Russia control of 20 percent of the U.S.’s uranium supply. Hillary Clinton served on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which unanimously approved the partial sale of the Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russian nuclear giant Rosatom.
    .
    FBI agents and the confidential informant made secret recordings, gathered records and intercepted emails dating back to 2009 that showed that Russian officials had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks. However, the Department of Justice did not bring charges until 2014.
    .
    In a statement to The Hill, APCO said its activities involving client work for the Clinton Global Initiative and Tenex, a unit of Rosatom, were “totally separate and unconnected in any way” and that “any assertion otherwise is false and unfounded.”
    .
    Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton, told the outlet that Campbell’s statement is being used as a distraction from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into possible collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russians in the 2016 election.
    .
    “Just yesterday the committee made clear that this secret informant charade was just that—a charade,” Merrill said Wednesday. “Along with the widely debunked text-message-gate and Nunes’ embarrassing memo episode, we have a trifecta of GOP-manufactured scandals designed to distract from their own president’s problems and the threat to democracy he poses.”

    My Thoughts:
    .
    Ask yourself this, why would the US government sell any of our uranium to another country when at the present time the US has to purchase uranium from overseas. But I guess Hillary receiving $145 million and Bill receiving $500,000 for a ½ hour speech over in Russia from those who received the 20% of our uranium was worth it.
    .
    The most visible, high profile, folks are Obama and Hillary Clinton, but others in the Obama regime were also paid off! Robert Mueller was the Director of the FBI during that entire process, for crying out loud!
    .
    And Mueller is the objective Independent Counsel searching for collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign? Hells bells! Mueller is actually part of the Russia-Clinton collusion crap pool!
    .
    Rod Rosenstein - get off your crooked a$$ and stop pretending to be sterile in this abomination of the Witch Hunt that you put Mueller in charge of. The jig is up! You’re part of the corruption on the Department of Justice!

    Tell us this then, why didn't APCO also try to influence the 8 other members of CFIUS that were required for the deal's approval? Why only the Clinton Foundation? Why are you not talking bout the fact that the U.S. imports 90% of its uranium currently? Or that the "20%" you talk about is not actually uranium production, but simply the percentage l of unmined/inactive minelands the one is sitting on & not actively being used? How about talking about the fact that none of the proposed meetings lobbied by APCO never took place? Or the fact that the Clinton State Dept. Was one of 9 total agencies that had veto power over the Uranium One deal but they all approved it too?

    More importantly...why are Republicans not exploring questions like who else is trump paying to keep quiet? If a porn star has dirt on him, who else might? Why hasn't Trump still not released his taxes? Why is it that anyone Trump owes money to, or who might know his secrets suddenly gets off Scott free like Deutche Bank? How come he isn't tougher on Vladimir Putin? I mean in 2 years he hasn't called him Little Vladimir once. Yes there are plenty of questions to be answered...but Uranium One isn't among them.

    You're right there are a lot of unexplained questions...but the Clintons are the last.

    Your questions and my reply's.
    .
    "Tell us this then, why didn't APCO also try to influence the 8 other members of CFIUS that were required for the deal's approval"
    .
    6 of the 8 members of CFIUS were reported to have close connections to the Clinton Foundation for their financial welfare, so with that do you think they would go against Hillary?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Why are you not talking bout the fact that the U.S. imports 90% of its uranium currently"
    .
    I did, "why would the US government sell any of our uranium to another country when at the present time the US has to purchase uranium from overseas". It would help to actually read my comments.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Clinton State Dept. Was one of 9 total agencies that had veto power over the Uranium One deal but they all approved it too"
    .
    See my first reply, but the real question is, if the Clinton Foundation received $145 million and Bill received the $500,000, wasn't that a bribe to OK the sale?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Bottom line is, the Clinton's crimes have been shown by the FBI informant that he had the dirt on them and gave testimony to Congress showing all of the bribes and such with documents and video's showing everything that happened concerning the Uranium One deal, and AG Sessions said last week that an 2nd Special Counsel should be conducted considering what the FBI informant has shown.
    .
    Also, just wait for the DOJ's inspector General's report that is coming out in a few week's.
