Clinton Foundation benefited: FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow

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.

    Billary corrupt and treasonous. Say it ain’t so.

  • Sharkibark

    Bet this will make the MSM shut up about Russia.

      Never happen. They’ve become obssessed like a baby digging in it’s own diaper.

        Wow that’s a visual it’s going to take three drinks to forget. 😛

      Time to quintuple down on the Russia hacking story.

    Yet still no action taken.

    We will look back fondly on the days when politicians and ex politicians were only millionaires not billionaires. If the MSM is angry at Trump for, among other things, being rich, it will be funny watching them fumble when the Obamas announce they are worth at least that much and that the Clintons certainly have been, for years and years.

  • As usual, follow the money.

      The US is being looted by its elites and their claque. The big problem began when they took a leaf from how union racketeers work the system and avoid punishment.

    There was a Canadian connection, Frank Guistra a shady liberal supporter, helped broker the entire deal. Now thanks to these soulless monsters if a nuclear war starts anywhere the chances are good its uranium they sold.

    If you want to understand the Democrats, know that they are guilty of whatever they are falsely accusing Republicans of doing.

  • Hannity is having a “big reveal” tonight at 9:00 re: Hillary. Supposed to be a blockbuster, maybe sink the ship.

    Hillary was the one collaborating with the Russians, not Trump. In other words they had potential extortion material on her and Hillary knew it. So she pre-emptively projected it on Trump with help from the fake Media in order to divert anybody from looking in her direction about anything concerning the Russians. This woman does not have an ethical fiber in her being.

    And the interesting thing is I don’t think the Russians stooped so low as to actually extort her — otherwise they would have supported her campaign so that if she won, they would be in the position to do that. Kudos to the Russians for having more ethics than Hillary. At least that’s my take on it until I know otherwise…
