Clinton Foundation Involved in Bribery, Kickbacks, Money Laundering to Grow Russia's Energy Program

In 2009, the FBI uncovered a Russian plot, backed by documents, that shows Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks. Russian nuclear officials routed millions of dollars to the benefit of the Clinton Foundation when Hillary was Secretary of State.

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 Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.

The Obama administration’s decision to approve Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One has been a source of political controversy since 2015.

FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.

Then-Attorney General Eric Holder was among the Obama administration officials joining Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States at the time the Uranium One deal was approved. Multiple current and former government officials told The Hill they did not know whether the FBI or DOJ ever alerted committee members to the criminal activity they uncovered.

Irony Runs Five Miles Deep

If you or I did what Hillary did with emails, or what the Clinton Foundation did with Russian energy bribes and kickback schemes, we would be in jail.

Instead, Hillary accuses Russia of stealing the election. The irony of this setup runs five miles deep. There would have been no election to steal if Hillary or Clinton Foundation executives were in jail.

Mike "Mish" Shedlock

Until so-called leaders are held to account, the US will continue it's march to being a banana republic.

Will the lame stream media even notice?

If you or I went and openly bribed members of Congress, like Nancy Pelosi did with Obamacare, we would go to jail. If we stole the bribe money from taxpayers, we would go to jail. Hilary has committed so many crimes its impossible to list them all. Bill is engaged in money laundering, tax evasion, pay-to-play extortion (when he isn't boinking dozens of women who are not his wife).... there was a time when the Democratic party stood for the middle class and wasn't controlled by organized crime families (Clintons, Obamas, Pelosi, and George Soros) But Europe and Canada refuse to admit this crime syndicate is the real reason Trump was elected

Oh come on guys, Occam's razor says that there is no conspiracy, it' all a big misunderstanding or those involved are just stupid or lazy or both. That's the story that kept so many conservatives from saying the obvious each time the shark was jumped, like it was on 9-11. The government is nothing but organized crime and anyone who doesn't see that is a moron.

This is probably what Obama meant when he said he told Putin he would "have more flexibility" after the 2012 election. The Swiss banks still haven't released the 30,000 private accounts that were identified by the IRS for fraud. My guess is the money is being wired from Putin directly to intermediaries who then wire the money to Clinton and Obama. And this goes on no matter who's President. Trump is probably getting the money now. It doesn't matter who is in charge, they are merely actors on a stage.
