With Bribery, Russian Nuclear Officials Made Bill and Hillary Clinton Richer

In 2009 Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted more control over U.S. nuclear capability and the Clintons helped him get there. 

According to a bombshell report published today in TheHill the corruption surrounding the sale of Uranium One when President Obama was in the White House, which overwhelmingly and personally benefited former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, was far worse than we first knew and the FBI documented all of it. Bolding is mine: 

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.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating 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, sources told The Hill.

The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.

Under her watch at the State Department, Secretary Hillary Clinton benefited from the Russian government increasing its power inside the U.S. nuclear program and allowed it to happen. She then denied knowing anything about it on the campaign trial and resented allegations she used her position at the State Department for personal gain. Russian nuclear officials were paying her husband millions through shady back channels and by default, they were paying her too. 

It should be noted that although former FBI Director James Comey declared the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server to transmit top secret information over in 2016, we heard nothing about the FBI's investigation into the Clinton Foundation being finished.
