First Uranium One Indictment Issued In Hillary Clinton Bribery Scandal

The first indictment for a key figure involved in the Hillary Clinton Uranium One Russian bribery scandal has been handed out.

The first indictment for a key figure involved in the Hillary Clinton Uranium One Russian bribery scandal has been handed out, after a federal grand jury issued an 11-count ruling including “conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, wire fraud, and international money laundering.”

The 11-count indictment was handed out on Friday connected to the alleged Russian bribery scheme involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and Uranium One.

The charges are against Mark Lambert, who is the “former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad.

Lambert 54, of Maryland, was charged 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 DOJ said in a statement.

The charges are connected to the alleged bribery scheme that involves “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.”

Daily Wire reports: TENEX is the commercial sales arm for Russia’s Rosatom, which took full control of Uranium One in 2013.

A report from October revealed that federal agents started collecting evidence in 2009 about Russian officials that were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering connected to the Uranium One deal:

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.

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

In December, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered that prosecutors at the DOJ start “interviewing FBI agents about evidence they uncovered in a criminal investigation into a highly-controversial uranium deal that involves Bill and Hillary Clinton.”

    The 11-count indictment was handed out on Friday connected to the alleged Russian bribery scheme involving a Russian entity and an American Trucking Firm. Uranium One is in no way associated with that case. This story is crap, designed to be broadcast on FOX NEWS.

      Uranium One was a CANADIAN Uranium Company, which was bought by a RUSSIAN Uranium Company. If Russia now owns 20% of our uranium, they bought it from CANADA. How did Canada get it ??
      Because Uranium One had the MINING RIGHTS to a mine in Wyoming, nine U.S. Federal Agencies had to sign-off on the deal. The State Dept. was one of those Agencies. An Assistant Secretary, in charge of the Committee on Foreign Investments in the U.S. (CFIUS), Jose Hernandez, signed the document for the State Dept. Hillary was not involved in any way. The implication (LIE) that Russian money was funneled into the Clinton Foundation in return for that signature is ludicrous. How many millions were funneled to the other eight Agencies ??
      That uranium is still in that mine in Wyoming under control of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and ain’t going nowhere without a permit from the NRC, and then only for peaceful purposes..
      Google “Megatons to Megawatts”. Read it all. THINK.
      Once again; When Sean Hannity’s lips are moving, Sean is lying.
