House Intel Committee Announces Uranium One Probe – Three Distinct Components…

House intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes announces the congressional probe into the Russian Uranium One deal.  As described, the initial part of the probe will be to discover if there was actually an ongoing FBI investigation into the company at the time the Obama administration gave the green light for the controversial purchase.

In order to answer that originating question the DOJ has released an FBI informant from their non disclosure agreement (NDA).  If it is confirmed the FBI was actually conducting an investigation – the additional lines of probative value will encompass how the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approved the purchase during an ongoing FBI investigation.

.

If the FBI was investigating, and if CFIUS approved the purchase despite the investigation, then it appears congress would move to the third probative point “why”?

Within the third probative point is where the possibility of a quid-pro-quo with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comes into play.  The financial dynamic behind Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation is substantive, factual, generally well cited, and potentially illegal albeit difficult to prove.

It is within that third dynamic that WikiLeaks previously outlined the exceptionally coincidental connections which align with the quid-pro-quo and encompass Hillary/Bill Clinton, John Podesta, and Russian business and governmental interests.

(Via WikiLeaks – October 2016) Part 1 of the Podesta Emails comprises 2,060 emails and 170 attachments and focuses on Mr Podesta’s communications relating to nuclear energy, and media handling over donations to the Clinton Foundation from mining and nuclear interests; 1,244 of the emails reference nuclear energy. The full collection includes emails to and from Hillary Clinton.

In April 2015 the New York Times published a story about a company called “Uranium One” which was sold to Russian government-controlled interests, giving Russia effective control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.

Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for the production of nuclear weapons, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of US government agencies.

Among the agencies that eventually signed off the deal was the State Department, then headed by Secretary Clinton. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) comprises, among others, the secretaries of the Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce and Energy.

As Russian interests gradually took control of Uranium One millions of dollars were donated to the Clinton Foundation between 2009 and 2013 from individuals directly connected to the deal including the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Telfer.

Although Mrs Clinton had an agreement with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors to the Clinton Foundation, the contributions from the Chairman of Uranium One were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons.  [The foundation admission]

When the New York Times article was published the Clinton campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, strongly rejected the possibility that then-Secretary Clinton exerted any influence in the US goverment’s review of the sale of Uranium One, describing this possibility as “baseless”.

Mr Fallon promptly sent a memo to the New York Times with a rebuttal of the story (Podesta Email ID 1489).  In this memo, Mr Fallon argued:

“Apart from the fact that the State Department was one of just nine agencies involved in CFIUS, it is also true that within the State Department, the CFIUS approval process historically does not trigger the personal involvement of the Secretary of State. The State Department’s principal representative to CFIUS was the Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs. During the time period in question, that position was held by Jose Fernandez. As you are aware, Mr Fernandez has personally attested that “Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter.”

What the Clinton campaign spokesman failed to disclose, however, was the fact that a few days before sending his rebuttal to the New York Times, Jose Fernandez wrote on the evening of the 17 April 2015 to John Podesta following a phone call from Mr Podesta (Email ID 2053):

“John, It was good to talk to you this afternoon, and I appreciate your taking the time to call. As I mentioned, I would like to do all I can to support Secretary Clinton, and would welcome your advice and help in steering me to the right persons in the campaign”.

Five days after this email (22 April 2015), Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon wrote a memo to the New York Times, declaring that “Jose Fernandez has personally attested that ‘Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter’,” but Fallon failed to mention that Fernandez was hardly a neutral witness in this case, considering that he had agreed with John Podesta to play a role in the Clinton campaign.

The emails show that the contacts between John Podesta and Jose Fernandez go back to the time of internal Clinton campaign concern about the then-forthcoming book and movie “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer on the financial dealings of the Clinton Foundation.

In an email dated 29 March 2015 (Email ID 2059), Jose Fernandez writes to Podesta:

“Hi John, I trust you are getting a brief rest after a job well done. Thanks no doubt to your recommendation I have joined the CAP [Center for American Progress] board of trustees, which I’m finding extremely rewarding.”

Julian Assange

(Via New York Times) […] “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.”

    So what is POTUS Trump doing that the deep state is employing such shiny countermeasures and chaff?

    From the Iran-Contra hearings till now, it’s the same script with different actors. Nothing will come of this. Even if there are indictments and convictions there are plenty of liberal judges to overturn or vacate them on appeal.

    “‘O prostitute, hear the word of the Lord: This is what the Lord God says! Because I see your filthy sins, your adultery with your lovers—your worshiping of idols—and the slaying of your children as sacrifices to your gods, this is what I am going to do: I will gather together all your allies—these lovers of yours you have sinned with, both those you loved and those you hated—and I will make you naked before them that they may see you. I will punish you as a murderess is punished and as a woman breaking wedlock living with other men. I will give you to your lovers—these many nations—to destroy, and they will knock down your brothels and idol altars. They will strip you, take your beautiful jewels, and leave you naked and ashamed. They will burn your homes, punishing you before the eyes of many women. And I will see to it that you stop your adulteries with other gods and end your payments to your allies for their love.”

    One observation from this so far. As the Russian narrative is fully backfiring, the Republican committees aren’t going to get any results EXCEPT for a massive amount of damage to Democrats. Even hard-core Democrats are backing off of their support for Obama and the Clinton gang.

    It will be HARD for a Democrat to get elected into any new seats and they are very likely to lose more seats. And does this “help” the cause? Yes and no… mostly no unless president Trump can get more RINOs to retire.

      Desperately seeking fall-guys.

      Remember when Jeff Sessions in his most recent senate appearance stated that some people have already gone to jail or prison over the Uranium One deal? It sort of confirms there was an FBI investigation into the Uranium One deal. But no one IMPORTANT was convicted or even touched in the whole thing. (Probably, some who have knowledge of the crimes of the famous people were charged, convicted and sentenced as a way of keeping the whole thing quiet)

      But since this OLD NEWS is now new again, in order to protect the queen, they will need a public hanging of someone else. DWS is already toast from the Imran Awan ‘matter.’ So why not serve some sort of concurrent sentencing for it?

        I agree. When the NYT goes against her that is significant. imo. Somebody must have put the word out to these minions that Hillary needs to go. Just a wild thought, but I think she is seriously wanting to run again in 2020 despite what she says and the Dems and their money men funders want no part of that at all.

        Time to cut her loose and for her continuing resistance she gets the bus running over her with no protective shield and only token support. Only thing that might soften the blow is if Obama is under fire and threat from her or the opposition. Then they might let her off more easily as long as she agrees to protect their agenda and their legacy puppet, O.

        Just my musings on what’s unfolding. I think the left is very afraid she might assert power again somehow, possibly black mailing them, and they want her to get lost. The lefties must not be too afraid of what she has on them at this point but who knows what she really has hidden in her secret stash. However, they probably have as much or more on her, so they are ok saying sayonara to her.

        This stuff is fascinating to watch. She will not give up her crazed power obsession easily that’s for sure. Problem is, Billy is in no condition to help out even if he wanted to, which he probably doesn’t because he hasn’t a clue what’s going on anymore. He looks very frail and confused these days.

Everyone on the committee that approved this sale should be held accountable for enabling this travesty.

    Hillary Clinton may need to do more than clarify the timeline for the CFIUS approval of the ARMZ-Uranium One deal.

    She may also have to explain whether she failed to disclose to Assistant Secretary Fernandez, the State Department representative on CFIUS, that several executives at Uranium One made millions of dollars in contributions to the Clinton Foundation immediately before and after CFIUS reviewed and approved the ARMZ-Uranium One deal, CFIUS Case No. 10-40, in 2010.

    Senator John Barrasso, a Republican from Wyoming, where Uranium One’s largest American operation was, wrote to President Obama, saying the deal “would give the Russian government control over a sizable portion of America’s uranium production capacity.”

    “Equally alarming,” Mr. Barrasso added, “this sale gives ARMZ a significant stake in uranium mines in Kazakhstan.”

    ARMZ and Uranium One had gone through the CFIUS review and approval practice a year earlier in 2009, when ARMZ announced that it was acquiring a 17 percent interest in Uranium One. That deal was consider a “covered transaction” under FINSA, and was reviewed and approved by CFIUS in 2009. Surprisingly the 2009 Annual Report submitted to Congress by CFIUS inaccurately described this approved transaction by stating the company acquiring a minority interest was Canadian rather than Russian.

    As it did in its 2009 Annual Report to Congress, CFIUS misreported the nature of the approved transaction (Case No-40) between ARMZ and Uranium One in its 2010 Annual Report to Congress.

    Among the Sberbank subsidiaries that the Podesta Group also represents are the Cayman Islands-based Troika Dialog Group Limited, the Cyprus-based SBGB Cyprus Limited, and the Luxembourg-based SB International.
    As reported this week by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, a consortium of journalists exploring the Panama Papers leak, Sberbank and Troika Dialog are used by members of Mr. Putin’s inner circle to shift public funds into sometimes questionable private investments. In other words, this is top-level money laundering of a brazen kind.

    As the OCCRP stated plainly, “Some of these companies were initially connected to the Troika Dialog investment fund, which was controlled and run by Sberbank after the bank bought the Troika Dialog investment bank. Troika and Sberbank declined to comment.”

    Adding to shadiness of all this, the Podesta Group is playing along with the useful charade that Sberbank is simply a private financial institution, rather than the state-owned bank that it is, since that would require the lobbyists to register as agents of the Russian government under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

    John and Tony Podesta aren’t fooling anyone with this ruse. They are lobbyists for Vladimir Putin’s personal bank of choice, an arm of his Kremlin and its intelligence services. Since the brothers Podesta are presumably destined for very high-level White House jobs next January if the Democrats triumph in November at the polls, their relationship with Sberbank is something they—and Hillary Clinton—need to explain to the public.

    This is the division of the Clinton Foundation that was for mining. The parts of the educational scams in Latin America are a whole different Bill and Hillary scheme. They did use education to rip off the American people too. But that’s another story for another day. It’s all related tho….

    The foundation’s Bogota-based firm, Fondo Acceso, was started in 2010 by Bill Clinton, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim and mining magnate Frank Giustra, with seed funding of $20 million from the foundation’s Clinton-Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative and the SLIM Foundation, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

    Anything to hide here? Well, Fondo Acceso took down its website once the Beacon broke the story. And the venture wasn’t even registered as a private-equity fund in Colombia, thereby skirting government oversight. A good move for an investment firm linked to the US secretary of state.

    Ken Boehm, a watchdog with the National Legal and Policy Center, notes, “At the minimum, the Clinton Foundation should disclose every company that received investment funds from them, because the public is entitled to know whether those companies benefited from any State Department foreign-aid programs.”

    Not to mention the ethical murk of having two charities co-own an investment fund in a developing nation.

    Interesting – Ned Ryun (CEO of American Majority) on Fox right now with Jesse Watters –

    Uranium Deal was approved by 9 agencies in an expedited fashion, started first week of August, 2010, and was approved October 22, 2010. When you’re dealing with real issues of national security, sometimes it takes up to 120 days, this was more like 75 days”

    Anyone else realize the short time period involved?

    Why, it’s almost as if they had an inside track to approval? /s

    Floating nuclear power stations are planned to be used mainly in the Russian Arctic. Five of these will be used by Gazprom for offshore oil and gas field development and for operations on the Kola and Yamal peninsulas.[3] Other locations include Dudinka on the Taymyr Peninsula, Vilyuchinsk on the Kamchatka Peninsula and Pevek on the Chukchi Peninsula.[7] In 2007, Rosatom signed an agreement with the Sakha Republic to build a floating plant for its northern parts, using smaller ABV reactors.[3]” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_floating_nuclear_power_station (References at link; bold added for emphasis)
