Yesterday’s statement comes under the banner:
The charges are explained in the third paragraph the DOJ’s statement:
“Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged in an 11-count indictment with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering. The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX. “
We’ve been waiting for the indictments to start being handed down since a confidential informant came forward last October.
John Solomon first reported the CI’s existence whose evidence showed that:
“Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.”
Back in October we reported that The F.B.I. knew about this but never disclosed that agents working for then-FBI Director Robert Mueller had obtained extensive financial records, secret recordings and had intercepted emails that dated as far back as 2009, Obama’s first year in office.
FBI and court documents showed that Mueller was well aware that this violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act yet he remained silent under orders from Obama’s Department of Justice.
It was also known that the F.B.I. had an eyewitness — backed by significant documentation — that was in possession of evidence Russian nuclear officials had routed multiple payoffs of millions of dollars each to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that approved questionable decisions to Moscow.
The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.
Then, in 2011, the Obama administration gave approval for Rosatom’s Tenex subsidiary to sell commercial uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants in a partnership with the United States Enrichment Corp.
The following day we went into further detail on the FBI’s strange handling of the case. The principle players in the case read like a who’s who of the current prosecutorial team trying to take down President Trump:
Now the Deputy Director of the DOJ, Rod Rosenstein was the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland where the investigation took place. After Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel without evidence of an underlying crime. Mueller was charged with finding one, just not the one that was staring him in the face.
Current F.B.I. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was in charge of the investigation into Mikerin and Rosatom-Tenex back in 2009.
Sitting immediately above Mueller was Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder. It’s hard to imagine that Mueller or McCabe never told Holder what their investigation had revealed. And, it’s just as unimaginable that Holder and Obama never discussed it.
More likely, Obama and Clinton conspired to sell the uranium to Russia, each for their own reasons, with Obama giving a stand down order to Mueller and McCabe to squash the investigation. Such an arrangement would closely mirror the stand down order Loretta Lynch, who succeeded Holder as Attorney General, gave to Jim Comey, who succeeded Mueller as F.B.I. director, regarding the Clinton email investigation.
The significance of the indictment against Lambert comes from its potential to be the tip of the iceberg.
For those of you who wanted to prove Russian collusion at the highest levels of government you are about to see your dreams realized… or not.
Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Holder, Lynch, Clinton, and Obama all had a hand in it and then they compounded their assault on our American democracy by attempting a coup against President Trump to keep their corrupt dealings hidden from the public.
The mainstream media has been complicit in all of this. There have remained silent on reporting this indictment, as they remained silent back in October. Instead they want us fixated on whether it’s appropriate to call a sh*thole a sh*thole.
