    Informant provided FBI evidence Russia aided Iran nuclear program during Obama years
    (calls into question the favorable treatment Hillary/Obama gave Russia)
    The Hill ^ | 3/26/2018 | john solomom / FR Posted on 3/26/2018 by bitt

    A former undercover informant says he provided evidence to the FBI during President Obama’s first term that Russia was assisting Iran’s nuclear program even as billions in new U.S. business flowed to Moscow’s uranium industry.

    William Douglas Campbell told The Hill his evidence included that Russia was intercepting nonpublic copies of international inspection reports on Tehran’s nuclear program and sending equipment, advice and materials to a nuclear facility inside Iran.

    Campbell said Russian nuclear executives were extremely concerned that Moscow’s ongoing assistance to Iran might boomerang on them just as they were winning billions of dollars in new nuclear fuel contracts inside the United States.

    “The people I was working with had been briefed by Moscow to keep a very low profile regarding Moscow’s work with Tehran,” Campbell said in an interview. “Moscow was supplying equipment, nuclear equipment, nuclear services to Iran. And Moscow, specifically the leadership in Moscow, were concerned that it would offset the strategy they had here in the United States if the United States understood the close relationship between Moscow and Tehran.”

    A spokesman for former President Obama did not return multiple requests for comment.

    Congressional Democrats have written a memo questioning Campbell’s credibility and memory while Republicans say his story calls into question the favorable treatment the Obama administration gave Russia. (Excerpt) Read more at thehill.com ...

    At the now infamous joint Trump/Putin presser, Putin was asked whether he would be willing to cooperate with the Mueller investigation and a request for extradition of the 12 intelligence agents Mueller accused of infiltrating and manipulation of the US US election process.

    Putin declared that his government would be willing to allow Mueller investigators access to the 12 Russians in exchange for American cooperation in bringing to justice Clinton associates, including Mueller cohorts involved in illegal business transactions that allegedly took place in Russia, involving, according to Putin's statement, over $400 million dollars that was taken out of the Russia illegally.

    PONDER THIS---AG Sessions' in Utah indicates he is zeroing in on issues surrounding the Clintons Uranium One,
    and, The Clinton Foundation/State Dept Pay-to-play scandals. THIS MOVE INDICATES potential criminality.

    ===================================

    (hat tip demsux) .....that UTAH AG, the one Sessions appointed (and can seat a grand jury)
    just so happens to be in the jurisdiction where much of the Clintons' Uranium One deal was centered.
    Longshot, but THAT UTAH GUY could nab even MUELLER and cancel the insurance policy.........

    BACKSTORY REFERENCE----Uranium company deal nearly done;
    Utah town and mill part of sales pkg to subsidiary of Russian nuclear agency
    By Judy Fahys / The Salt Lake Tribune / December 13, 2010 / FR Posted on 4/3/2018, 11:52:50 AM by bitt

    A Canadian mining company is close to finalizing a deal that will give a Russian company controlling interest in its uranium operations, which include a Utah town, a uranium mill and thousands of acres of claims.

    In October, four members of Congress urged the U.S. Treasury Department to block plans by Uranium One to sell majority ownership to the mining company, Atomredmetzoloto (ARMZ), whose parent company is Rosatom, the Russian nuclear agency, to protect national security.

    Clinton Foundation’s Dealings with Russian Uranium
    Independent Journal Review ^ | April 2015 | Michael Hausum
    FR Posted by Beautiful_Gracious_Skies

    The New York Times on Thursday [April 2015] published an article about the Clinton Foundation, its receipt of millions of dollars from foreign governments and other interests, and the U.S. government’s involvement in Russia’s stated goal to expand its control of the world’s uranium market.

    All while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

    The NY Times didn’t reach a conclusion, but one question looms very large: As Secretary of State, did Hillary influence an international deal giving a Russian company 20% ownership of America’s uranium production, in return for millions of dollars of cash donations to the Clinton Foundation?

    Here is a list of 11 questionable items forming a chain of events:

    1. September of 2005: Canadian Frank Giustra visits Kazakhstan with Bill Clinton. Days later, his company UrAsia wins a major uranium deal with the country.

    2, 2006: Giustra donates $31 million to the Clinton Foundation.

    3. February 2007: UrAsia merges with Uranium One and expands into the U.S..

    4. June 2008: Russian atomic agency Rosatom begins talks to acquire Uranium One.

    5. 2008 to 2010: Uranium One and UrAsia investors donate $8.65 million to Clinton Foundation.

    6. June 2009: Rosatom acquires 17% of Uranium One.

    7. 2010 to 2011: Millions more donated by Uranium One investors to Clinton Foundation.

    8. June 2010: Rosatom requests Committee on Foreign Investment (of which the State Department is a member and its approval is needed) to approve a majority ownership in Uranium One, PROMISING NOT TO PURCHASE 100% of it, NOR TAKE IT PRIVATE.

    9. June 2010: Bill Clinton receives $500,000 to speak at a conference held by the Russian investment bank involved in the Rosatom transactions.

    10. October 2010: Committee APPROVES Rosatom’s request to ACQUIRE A MAJORITY SHARE in Uranium One.

    11. January 2013: Rosatom PURCHASES REMAINDER of Uranium One and takes it PRIVATE!.

    >>The origins of the story were reported in the NY Times in 2008 by Jo Becker, a co-author of the recent NYT piece:

    Unlike established competitors, Mr. Giustra was a newcomer to uranium mining in Kazakhstan, a former Soviet republic. But what his fledgling company lacked in experience, it made up for in connections. Accompanying Giustra on his luxuriously appointed MD-87 jet that day was a former president of the United States, Bill Clinton....

    Within two days, corporate records show that Mr. Giustra also came up a winner when his company signed preliminary agreements giving it the right to buy into three uranium projects controlled by Kazakhstan’s state-owned uranium agency, Kazatomprom.

    The monster deal stunned the mining industry, turning an unknown shell company into one of the world’s largest uranium producers in a transaction ultimately worth tens of millions of dollars to Mr. Giustra, analysts said.

    Just months after the Kazakh pact was finalized, Mr. CLINTON’S charitable foundation received its own windfall: a $31.3 MILLION DONATION FROM MR. GUISTRA that had remained a SECRET until he acknowledged it last month.

    There are intricacies and subtleties to this story that aren’t evident in the timeline.

    For example, when Hillary assumed the job as Secretary of State, she assented to a limitation of the foundation’s international activities and agreed to disclose contributors. It appears, at a minimum, there was incomplete follow-through upon these assurances. Furthermore, those involved in the transactions have denied that any special privileges were sought and that the donations were completely unrelated.

    Not as treasonous as what the greedy Clinton's did

    Clinton Involved in Biggest Treason in History
    Kevin Shipp / usawatchdog.com ^ | 7/15/2018 | greg hunter / fr Posted on 7/15/2018, 2:07:14 PM by bitt

    Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books. Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas or FOIA demands for the evidence. This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.” Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI while the Uranium One deal was being done by Clinton and the Russians. One fifth of U.S. uranium production was bought by the Russians in a deal Clinton pushed and approved. The Clinton Foundation received more than $140 million from some of the same Russian players who were involved with Uranium One. Why didn’t Mueller stop the deal? Shipp says, “Mueller is either a complete moron, which he is not, or he overlooked the biggest counter-terrorism cases in U.S. history. It involved Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, Uranium One and, of course, the destruction of all the emails and evidence and her secret server, and on and on and on it goes, and he (Mueller) ignored it all.” (Excerpt) Read more at usawatchdog.com ...

    NY TIMES 2015 report----"For the Clintons a hedge fund in the family."

    EXCERPT When Chelsea's hubby, Mark Mezvinsky, and his partners began raising money in 2011 for a new hedge fund firm, Eaglevale Partners, a number of investors in the firm were longtime supporters of the Clintons, according to interviews and financial documents reviewed by The New York Times. Tens of millions of dollars raised by Eaglevale can be attributed to investors with some relationship or link to the Clintons.

    The investors include hedge fund managers like Marc Lasry and James Leitner; an overseas money management firm connected to the Rothschild family; and people from Goldman Sachs, including the chief executive, Lloyd C. Blankfein. Some of the investors in Eaglevale have contributed campaign money to the former president and Mrs. Clinton. Some have also contributed to the family’s foundation.

    Identifying who put money into Eaglevale, a roughly $400 million fund that has had underwhelming returns for much of its brief history, is difficult because hedge funds do not publicly disclose their investors.

    Still, the overlap between at least some of Eaglevale’s investors and backers of the Clintons illustrates how politics and finance can intersect and shows the fine line the Clinton family must navigate as their charitable and business endeavors come under scrutiny in an election cycle.

    SNIP

    Mr. Lasry, a co-founder of the big hedge fund Avenue Capital and a longtime friend and financial backer of both the former president and Mrs. Clinton, said he invested $1 million in Eaglevale. In an interview in his Park Avenue office, adorned with many photos of him with the former president, he said that he recommended that his relative by marriage, Craig Effron, another hedge fund manager, also invest in the fund. “I gave them money because I thought they would make me money,” said Mr. Lasry, whose $13 billion firm was one of the first places Chelsea worked after graduating from Stanford.

    A number of other investors reached by The Times declined to be interviewed.

    Secy Hillary kept a sharp eye on valuable US intelligence assessing the chances of a bailout of the Greek central bank
    b/c her SIL's hedge fund was heavily invested in Greece, and financed by Goldman Sachs.

    =========================================

    Most egregiously, then-Secy Hillary used her State Dept position to suck-up to Mideast oil billionaires for her SIL...as the bodies of four Americans lay brutally murdered in Benghazi.

    (Excerpt) Read more at judicialwatch.org ... On September 15, in a telephone call with then-Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr, Secy Clinton emphatically portrayed the “stupid, very offensive film” as the root cause of the Benghazi violence.

    Clinton told Amr, “I have repeatedly, as has the President and other officials in our government, deplored not only the content of this stupid, very offensive film… But we have to exercise more self-discipline… otherwise we’ll be in a vicious downward circle against everyone who has ever felt offended, particularly on the internet….”

    After referring to Benghazi, Secy Clinton’s telephone call with then-Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr also contained a curious reference to what the former secretary referred to as a “very successful investment visit led by my deputy Tom Nides, and on the very day they left, this series of incidents began to unfold.”

    According to the Washington Post, Nides, who was deputy secretary for management and resources at the State Department, was at the same time responsible for “communications with donors” to the Clinton Foundation.

    Nides was also involved in the earlier scandal involving Clinton’s efforts to provide special access to State Department officials for hedge fund clients of her son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky ....who was financed by Goldman Sachs.

    Putin said that the United States might file a request to question the Russians indicted in the US, under the 1999 Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, and Russian investigators could interrogate them."Then we will expect from the American side to question, in presence of our detectives, those officials, including US special services agents, who we suspect of committing illegal activities in the Russian Federation," he emphasized. "What do I mean? The notorious case of Bill Browder, the founder of the Hermitage Capital Management."

    William Felix Browder is an American-born British financier. He is the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management, an investment fund that at one time was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia. Born: April 23, 1964 (age 54 years), Chicago, IL.

    WSJ: The Clinton Foundation, Hillary's State Dept and Kremlin Connect

    Hillary Clinton touted her tenure as secretary of state as a time of hardheaded realism and “commercial diplomacy” that advanced American national and commercial interests. But her handling of a major technology transfer initiative at the heart of Washington’s effort to “reset” relations with Russia raises serious questions about her record. Far from enhancing American national interests, Mrs. Clinton’s efforts in this area may have substantially undermined U.S. national security.

    Consider Skolkovo, an “innovation city” of 30,000 people on the outskirts of Moscow, billed as Russia’s version of Silicon Valley—and a core piece of Mrs. Clinton’s quarterbacking of the Russian reset.

    Following his 2009 visit to Moscow, President Obama announced the creation of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission. Mrs. Clinton as secretary of state directed the American side, and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov represented the Russians. The stated goal at the time: “identifying areas of cooperation and pursuing joint projects and actions that strengthen strategic stability, international security, economic well-being, and the development of ties between the Russian and American people.”

    The Kremlin committed $5 billion over three years to fund Skolkovo. Mrs. Clinton’s State Department worked aggressively to attract U.S. investment partners and helped the Russian State Investment Fund, Rusnano, identify American tech companies worthy of Russian investment. Rusnano, which a scientific adviser to President Vladimir Putin called “Putin’s child,” was created in 2007 and relies entirely on Russian state funding.
