The founder and owner of Fredericks Dragon Distillery was indicted Friday for his alleged role in bribing a Russian atomic energy official to win government contracts for the company he formerly co-owned.
Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, faces 11 charges including violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and wire fraud, according to a U.S. Department of Justice statement released Friday.
We categorically reject the charges and are eager to dispute and defeat them in court, William M. Sullivan Jr., attorney for Lambert, said in an email Friday.
Lambert, who owns Dragon Distillery in Frederick, is the former co-president, along with Daren Condrey, of a Maryland-based nuclear fuel transportation company. The company, referred to as Transportation Company A in the indictment, provided logistical support for transporting nuclear materials in the United States and to foreign clients.
In the indictment unsealed Friday, prosecutors allege that Lambert and others concealed corrupt and fraudulent payments with fake invoices, offshore bank accounts and shell companies in Latvia, Cyprus and Switzerland, the release states.
Authorities believe that from at least 2009 to October 2014 Lambert and other company executives conspired to bribe Vadim Mikerin, an official at the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation subsidiary JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), in order to secure contracts for transporting nuclear fuel, according to the Justice Department release.
TENEX, which supplies uranium and uranium enrichment services to international companies, wholly owned a U.S.-based company called TENAM Corporation, according to the indictment.

WOW! Uranium One?
Maybe AG Sessions had one eye open while napping?
So it begins
.....things about to get bumpy for Lumpy (Hilda)....she’ll be down with some sort of illness soon...
This isn't the first time the DOJ has indicted some low level schlub outside of government, on charges related to Uranium dealing.
The last time Rosenstein was the prosecutor. This time he's the Deputy AG and perhaps the acting AG.
He’s only 54, could enjoy many more years ahead of him... if he’s willing to talk. I hope he does.
“Maybe AG Sessions had one eye open while napping?”
So they got a truck driver or something. Unless they are trying to work their way up the food chain...nada.
I sure hope so!
.That is, unless they come from the Arlo Guthrie school of criminal investigation, and have a whole lotta pictures with circle and arrows, and paragraphs upon paragraphs on the back of each one.
(We're talking boxes of paragraphs)
It’s going all the way to the top. The corrupt left-wing media will have to cover this story eventually.
Bigger than Watergate.
Careful now. Supposedly there are almost 10,000 sealed indictments.
Which looks to be more than just a truck driver caught in the net.
off topic? Maybe not, bwahaha!
