Liberals are fond of pushing the idea that the questions about Russian bribery, Uranium One and the Clintons’ involvement are just a ‘conspiracy theory.’ This, despite the fact that in December, the Department of Justice had announced that they would be reviewing the matter and “interviewing FBI agents about evidence they uncovered in a criminal investigation into a highly-controversial uranium deal that involves Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
Now, it may be very hard to keep pushing the idea that it’s all just a conspiracy theory with the latest news.
And it looks like the DOJ is taking it very seriously.
From Daily Wire:
An 11-count indictment was handed out on Friday connected to the alleged Russian bribery scheme involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and Uranium One.
The charges are against Mark Lambert, who is the “former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad.” Lambert 54, of Maryland, was charged with “one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering,” the DOJ said in a statement.
The charges are related to an alleged bribery scheme by the Russians, specifically Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation.
TENEX took over Uranium One in 2013 through a process which is now being reviewed by the DOJ.
There have been federal investigations since 2009 investigating the Russian attempts to influence the American uranium industry.
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.
But then rather than bring charges in 2010 despite having all that information, the DOJ just ‘continued to investigate’ and did not inform Congress or other agencies when the Obama administration made critical decisions which helped Putin’s nuclear aims.
If they are now back on the case, as it appears with this indictment, and they are talking to the whistleblower and looking at his evidence, it looks to be a very bad day coming for Bill and Hillary Clinton.
This is just the beginning.
