Investigators in Current Russia Investigation Were The Same Ones Who Hid Investigation Into Russian Nuclear Scandal

Oct 18, 2017

Special counsel Robert Mueller who is investigating allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign was the head of the FBI during the time the agency was investigating Russian influence on the American uranium market. Even though Congress questioned the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom, the FBI did not disclose the bribery investigation that was ongoing. Former Representative Mike Rogers said neither he nor anyone on his committee were told of “Russian nuclear corruption.” “Not providing information on a corruption scheme before the Russian uranium deal was approved by U.S. regulators and engage appropriate congressional committees has served to undermine U.S. national security interests by the very people charged with protecting them. The Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise is breathtaking.” Several individuals who participated in the Russian nuclear bribery investigation are now involved in the investigation about possible Russian influence in the 2016 presidential campaign. U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, now President Trump’s current deputy attorney general, supervised the nuclear investigation along with Andrew McCabe who currently serves as deputy FBI director.
