Lawyer: Obama Admin Threatened FBI Informant During Uranium One Deal…

Victoria Toensing is the lawyer for the confidential FBI informant who exposed Russian nuclear officials engaging in bribery, extortion, and money laundering during their attempts to corner the U.S. uranium market under the Obama administration.

In 2010 the Obama administration rushed through a Uranium One purchase of U.S. uranium rights through CFIUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.) approval during a review period lasting only 90-days.

It is now reported, during the CFIUS review the FBI (Director Robert Mueller) was investigating Russia’s government involvement in the deal. Normal a CFIUS review takes more than six months, often years, for approval.

During an interview with WMAL “Mornings on the Mall” Victorial Toensing states her client, the primary FBI informant, was forced to sign a non disclosure agreement (NDA) and threatened with legal action if he shared the content of the FBI investigation with congress.

Attorney Toensing also states during the 2012 election, lawyers from the Eric Holder Justice Department threatened her client, and later Loretta Lynch’s DOJ coerced him into dropping a lawsuit. “He was told that if he didn’t dismiss the case his reputation and liberty were in jeopardy.” Listen Below:

.

“When he tried to bring some of the allegations to light in the lawsuit last year, the Obama Justice Department threatened him with loss of freedom. They said they would bring a criminal case against him for violating an NDA.”

Additionally, Glenn Beck broke down some of the timeline in a generally good overall view of the Uranium One deal.

[If Beck had stayed the course with this type of research and explaining, he would be in great shape. Unfortunately he went nuts; and lost his way. ]

However, this is a good overall explanation of what took place.  WATCH:

.

House intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has announced 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”? ..and why so fast?

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.”

    There are several clues about what Hillary Clinton and the Obama admin. used to get uranium from Kazakhstan for Vlad and the Russians.

    Here is a pic of Hillary and the first paragraph with Mrs. Clinton… talks about how much the country wants to be a member of the WTO (World Trade Organization).

    There is the leverage for Bill Clinton’s deal right there…..or should we say here:

    So perhaps the witness isn’t Russian but instead is from Kazakhstan.

    So who were the Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security at the time of this deal? Surely they have much a say in the approval/denial of the transacion as State does.

  4. Let’s put a couple of things in perspective. A special prosecutor is appointed to investigate for evidence of a crime. While many of us are crying for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary, there is no need for one. Why? Because the evidence of criminal activity is already available.
    1. Lying under oath to Congress. 2. Deleting emails that were under subpoena. 3. Having a private server to contain classified information. 4. Allowing Huma Abedin to transfer classified information to a private laptop. And the list goes on an on. The FBI has already gathered all of the evidence against Hillary and company.
    According to Congressman Chafetz, Jeff Sessions stated that “He had no intentions of prosecuting Hillary.” The DOJ has hundreds of prosecutors who can prosecute Hillary and she knows that. And Jeff Sessions would be correct in saying that “He” will not prosecute her. The head of the DOJ never personally prosecutes a case. He always hands it over to someone else within the department.
    Federal grand juries exist all over the United States. The DOJ does not need Mueller to indict Hillary. They can use any prosecutor within their department to do the job. Why? Again because the evidence of a crime is there and Sessions doesn’t need Mueller’s grand jury to indict her.
    That is what is keeping Hillary awake at night.

      My personal favorite was shillery emailing classified docs to her illegal alien UNCLEARED housekeeper at home to print for her.
      Second to that would be huma and the other idiots doing the same.

    It seems clear to me that certain events have a feeling they have been co-ordinated. For example
    last week we had two seperate revelations with Uranium One and the Dossier. Timing was convenient but could have been coincidental. No, the stand out for me was the common themes emerging; Russia, Clinton, Democrats. It was almost as if the public was being brought up to speed, so as not to be completely shocked by events that may run counter to existing popular narratives.

    As a result, even to those not following in detail, the public have now been exposed to two seperate shady deals between the Russians, the Clintons and the Democrats. One involves paying Russian government connected agents to smear a political opponent, Trump. The other involves an approval process for selling a strategic resource to Russian government connected agents.Coincidently, these agents and others connected with the deal made payments in the millions to the Clintons and their Foundations before during and after the deal was approved.

    The prevailing narrative pushed by the Democrats, is that Trumps campaign ‘somehow’ colluded with Russians to influence the election and win. With Trump being a compromised national security risk as a result and Mueller investigating…

    The water cooler counter narrative after last weeks revelations is now;
    1. “wow Clinton and the Democrats paid for Russian Government dirt to make that dossier. That seems like it is actual evidence of Russian collusion with Clinton and the Democrats to interfere in the election”

    2. “The Democrats quickly approved selling 20% of our Uranium to Russian government connected agents. Why on earth would they do that after telling us Russia is our number 1 adversary, it makes no sense”

    3. “It seems far too coincidental that the Clintons and their foundations received tens of millions in donations from people connected with the sale. This has the appearance of corruption”

    4. “It sure seems like the Democrats and Clintons have been hypocritical in their accusations of Trumps Russian Collusion. Here are two examples where the Clintons, the Democrats and the Russians are doing mutually beneficial deals. They have clearly told us that the Russian Government is our number one adversary. Is this evidence that the Clintons and the Democrats have been compromised and are a national security threat?”

    Regardless of which bunnies get charges laid against them this week, the ongoing education and bringing up to speed of the general public is a good way to forecast where this is all headed.
    When revelations hit as they did last week, take a step back to see the line joining the dots.
    A big investigation of public institutions like this, gets ahead of the publics understanding at it’s peril.
    Narrative building is an important process and ensures public support and acceptance.

    Everything so far confirms my theory that Trump is the figure behind the curtain, who planned how this will roll out. And let’s face it, most of these crimes, fraud and corruption on the Democrat watch were very public. Clearly, the expected baton change to Clinton meant that there would be no need for a suspicious wholesale destruction of evidence. The cover ups could proceed at a leisurely and quiet pace throughout Hillary’s first term, so as not to cause suspicion.

    Certainly the logistic impossibility of sanitising the entire public record between Trumps election win and inauguration explains the vehemence and bile that lay behind Democrat attacks on Trump. To introduce fog and confusion and taking a gamble they would find evidence of ‘something’, the Democrats and Clintons accused Trump of their own crimes.Russian collusion to tilt the election, extensive business dealings with Russian government agents leading to compromise. Trump knows there is nothing to be found.

    So apart from intact evidentiary chains, Trump also has the benefit of the fast unravelling Democrat patronage and protection of players at all levels of the malfeasance.POTUS 45 really has all the cards and is playing them on his schedule, which is to time public revelations to have biggest impact on the 2018 mid terms. Unless something forces the hand into making arrests earlier, don’t expect big fish until late Winter, early Spring.
