This is a crime that could sink Hillary—I mean it
The Clintons: how Putin grabbed a fifth of all US uranium
By Jon Rappoport
No. It couldn’t be. It’s unbelievable. It’s too insane. Nobody could get away with a crime like this.
But it’s true. And the Clintons have gotten away with it.
She’s staggering toward her goal, the US Presidency.
He already was the President.
So…what is the uranium scandal?
Before I quote a NY Times piece, understand this: the Clintons have been running a parallel operation to the government, in the form of a Foundation that is taking in cash from people who want political favors. Just suppose a few donors who are ponying up those $$ want to sell a company to the Russians. But because this company deals in a very, very sensitive product, and that product happens to come out of the ground in the US, agencies of the US government have to approve the sale. And one of those agencies that does approve the sale happens to be headed up by Hillary. And this sensitive American product, well, the last person you’d want to control it is the head of a place called Russia—he can sit in Moscow and have complete dominion over this product that exists on US soil…and nobody thinks this is a problem. It’s a yawn. It was a big story for a day or two, and then it sank below memory and everybody moved on. Forget about it. Who cares?
Memory is short. On April 23, 2015, the NY Times ran a story under the headline: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.
The bare bones of the story: a Canadian company called Uranium One controls a great deal of uranium production in the US. It was sold to Russia (meaning Putin and his minions).
So Putin now controls 20% of US uranium production!
From the Times: “…the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”
From the Times: “The [Pravda] article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company [Uranium One] with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
“But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.
“At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One. [Uranium One controlled 20% of US uranium.]
“Frank Giustra…a mining financier, has donated $31.3 million to the foundation run by former President Bill Clinton…”
“Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal [to sell Uranium One to Putin] had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
“And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
“At the time, both Rosatom [the Russian energy agency] and the United States government made promises intended to ease concerns about ceding control of the company’s assets to the Russians. Those promises have been repeatedly broken, records show.
“…the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors.”
—The US State Dept. had to sign off on the deal giving Putin control over US uranium. Hillary headed up the State Dept. Much money from Canadian mining executives, who owned the US uranium, who obviously wanted the deal to go through, found its way into the Clinton Foundation. The Foundation concealed these donations.
If you’re Putin and you’re sitting in Moscow, and the uranium deal has just dropped this bonanza into your lap, what’s your reaction—after you stop laughing and popping champagne corks? Or maybe you never really stop laughing. Maybe this is a joke that keeps on giving. You wake up in the middle of the night with a big grin plastered on your face, and you can’t figure out why…and then you remember, oh yeah, the uranium deal. The US uranium. Who’s running the show in America? Ha-ha-ha. Some egregious dolt? Maybe he’s a sleeper agent we forgot about and he reactivated himself. And this Foundation—how can the Clintons get away with that? And she’s going to be the next President? Can we give her a medal? Can we put up a statue of her in a park? Does Bill need any more hookers?
You shake your head and go back to sleep. You see a parade of little boats carrying uranium from the US to Russia. A pretty line of putt-putt boats. You chuckle. Row, row, row your boat…merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily…life is but a dream.
But not good times for America. Good CRIMES for the Clintons.
Can’t this story get enough legs to sink the Clinton’s ship? It’s right out there in the open.
Hillary’s blaming Russia for the hack of her emails and everybody else’s emails. She’s blaming the Russians for the debacle in Syria. She’s “talking tough” to the Russians.
But meanwhile—she gave Russia the biggest present they could have asked for. Why? Because her Foundation pocketed millions in cash, in return.
With the Clintons, money talks. It’s orgasmic. It lights up their eyeballs.
I repeat: can’t this story get enough legs to sink Hillary and Bill?
SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.
