The Clinton, Russian, Nuclear Corruption Scandal

Oct 18, 2017

In 2009, the FBI began gathering information about Russian officials engaging in bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering in a case involving an American uranium trucking company. At the same time the FBI discovered that “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.” Rather than bring charges, the Obama Department of Justice continued to investigate, but did not tell Congress or the public. During the investigation, the Obama administration “approved the sale of the Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. This sale gave Russia control of 20 percent of America’a uranium. A second decision by the Obama administration gave a subsidiary of Russia’s Rosatom approval to “sell uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants. After the sale of Uranium One was approved, the chairman of the company donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundations. And shortly after the deal was approved, former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech he gave in Moscow.
