One of the major scandals of the Obama Administration has to do with the Uranium One deal, which involved the United States, a Canadian uranium company known as Uranium One, and Russia. On FactCheck.org, they reported that…
On June 8, 2010, Uranium One announced it had signed an agreement that would give “not less than 51%” of the company to JSC Atomredmetzoloto, or ARMZ, the mining arm of Rosatom, the Russian nuclear energy agency.
At the time, Uranium One’s two licensed mining operations in Wyoming amounted to about “20 percent of the currently licensed uranium in-situ recovery production capacity in the U.S.,” according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. In-situ recovery is the extraction method currently used by 10 of the 11 licensed U.S. uranium producers.
Uranium One also has exploration projects in Arizona, Colorado and Utah.
But the deal required multiple approvals by the U.S., beginning with the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States. Under federal law, the committee reviews foreign investments that raise potential national security concerns.
In fact, John Solomon reported that in 2010, the Obama Administration made the Uranium One deal, which has proven to be one of the most controversial and apparently corrupt deals in history, as it gave a whopping 20% of Americas crucial supply of uranium, to none other than RUSSIA! In fact, they made the deal, despite known efforts by the Russians to employ bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering that benefited Vladamir Putin, and Russia itself.
Simultaneously, multiple government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investments and the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED a partial sale of the Uranium One company to the Russian company Rosatom, despite the deal handing a desperately needed 20% of American Uranium over to the control of Vladamir Putin.
Even more concerning, is the fact that 9 of the Uranium One shareholders donated during that time, MORE THAN $145 MILLION to wait for it……THE CLINTON FOUNDATION! Those donations occurred just prior to the approval of the deal by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and her State Department. Also, former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 in speaking fees in Russia, and reports indicate that he met with Vladamir Putin in the weeks preceeding the deals conclusion.
In addition, Vadim Mikerin, who was the Russian official overseeing Vladamir Putin’s nuclear expansion in the United States was found to be involved in corruption before the deal was signed, and sentenced to prison. Still the deal proceeded.
Already Fox News revealed that one informant, Douglas Campbell came forward and alleged that…
Moscow had paid millions of dollars to a lobbying firm to help Bill Clinton’s charities in order to influence Hillary Clinton, who was then former President Barack Obama’s secretary of state. Campbell made the claims in a 10-page statement given to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative.”
It is known as ‘pay-to-play’ crimes, in addition to creating a national security crisis, and shows REAL RUSSIA COLLUSION! Reports also indicate that it is one of the reasons that Democrats have become so frantic to remove President Trump from office, so they could cover-up the crimes that were committed under the Obama Administration.
Now, as yet another former FBI contractor turned informant, who had previously turned over documents to the Department of Justice Inspector General David Harowitz has now come under fire by Deep State criminals within the FBI. The information turned over to authorities by the informant involves the FBI’s failure to investigate the alleged criminal activity of then Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, as well as the Clinton Foundation, and a Russian company who purchased Uranium One.
As a result of Cain’s cooperation as an ongoing witness , the DOJ Inspector General Harowitz deemed him a ‘whistleblower’, which grants him protection under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act.
However once again the deep state did what it wanted, regardless of it being against the laws and protections established under the laws of the Constitution of the United States, sixteen FBI agents raided Cain’s Maryland home on November 19th, 2018. The agents spent more than six hours in the home, despite the fact that he was protected under ‘Whistleblower Protection Act’, and despite the fact that he had already handed the documents over to proper authorities.
Were they in search of the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One documents that he handed over to the Inspector General, and both the Senate and House intelligence committees?….Or could it be the fact that the documents reveal that when the acting FBI Director under Hillary Clinton had failed to investigate the Russian nuclear firm known as Rosatam, for criminal misconduct after it had purchased 20% of the United States uranium supply.
IRONICALLY, GUESS WHO WAS THE ACTING FBI DIRECTOR DURING THE INCIDENT? IT WAS NONE OTHER THAN ROBERT MUELLER OVER THE SPECIAL COUNSEL, now in charge of the Trump/Russia collusion investigation.
THEREFORE, COULD IT BE A COVER UP?
The Daily Caller reported:
FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.
The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.
The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by Daily Caller alleges. Mueller is now the special counsel investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
“The bureau raided my client to seize what he legally gave Congress about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One,” the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras, told TheDCNF, noting that he considered the FBI’s raid to be an “outrageous disregard” of whistleblower protections.
“I cannot believe the Bureau informed the federal magistrate who approved the search warrant that they wanted to search the home of a FBI whistleblower to seize the information that he confidentially disclosed to the IG and Congress,” Socarras told TheDCNF.
The FBI has yet to talk to Cain’s attorney despite the raid, according to Socarras.
“After the raid, and having received my name and phone number from Mr. Cain as his lawyer, an FBI agent actually called my client directly to discuss his seized electronics,” Socarras told TheDCNF. “Knowingly bypassing the lawyer of a represented client is serious misconduct.”
Even more problematic, it was the federal magistrate from the United States District Court for Baltimore, who approved the raid of Nathan Cain’s home. Her name is Stephanie A. Gallagher, and she was appointed by former President Barack Obama, and regardless of what some like Chief Justice John Roberts like to say, THERE ARE OBAMA JUDGES! After all, it has been almost exclusively Obama Judges who have employed Judicial Activism and failed to follow the rights of American citizens, and laws that have been inscribed into the Constitution.
Interestingly, Mr. Cain ‘the whistleblower’, informed the agents who arrived at his home that he was protected as a whistleblower under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act, and that Horowitz officially recognized his status as a whistleblower. He also informed the agents that he had already given not only the Inspector General, but the House and Senate Intelligence Committees the classified documents as well. Regardless, the FBI agents became aggressive, and he says that ‘out of fear’, he handed over documents to them that they requested. Still, the agents proceeded to spend the next six hours, rummaging through his home and belongings, regardless of the legal violations.
Now, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is demanding answers. Grassley has asked for answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray about the illegal raid on Mr. Cains’ home. In fact, he sent a letter to Director Wray asking specific questions about the raid, and another letter to Inspector General Horowitz seeking Mr. Cain’s documents and citing reports from the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF).
Grassley asked Director Wray if the FBI was…
“aware at the time of the raid that Mr. Cain had made what appeared to be lawful disclosures to the Inspector General? If so, was the FBI aware that these disclosures were passed to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, per the [act]?”
Also, he asked the Director for “the basis” for the raid, and requested that he provide a copy of the original warrant and all supporting documents. Currently, the court order for the raid, and apparently all documents that justify the raid, are sealed and not available to the public.
