Many be interesting but can you translate?
Maybe I looked at the wrong stuff but it doesn’t seem like there was a significant amount of info there.
Will see if Katica does anything with this as she is a pretty good sleuth.
The New York Times 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 Kazakhstans state-owned uranium agency, Kazatomprom. The monster deal stunned the mining industry, turning an unknown shell company into one of the worlds 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.
I scrolled through it. looks like people trying to raise a red flag on the Uranium One deal.
Noticed at the very bottom in faint grey;
“A version of this article appears in print on April 23, 2015, on Page A1 of the New York edition with the headline: The Clintons, The Russians and Uranium.”
And did a search for that article name and came up with;
The article has a different title than the print version but it has the same text at the bottom regarding the title of the printed version.
I haven’t read the article. It’s long as can be because of the huge subject.
Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev greets former
president Clinton (L) in Almaty on September 6, 2005.
NOTE Kazakh is remembered as the last state to peel off from the USSR.
CIRCA 2015 A Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter claims that former President Bill Clinton falsely denied hosting a meeting with Kazakh officials when she tried to write a story that involved his foundation several years ago.
Jo Becker, who works on the newspaper's investigative desk, said Clinton only confirmed the meeting took place after she informed him there were photographs.
Clinton's role in a deal that involved Kazakhstan, the Russian government, and a man (Giustra) who donated millions to the president's charitable foundation were detailed in a story Becker published on Thursday.
That article revisited some of her earlier reporting and included information from the upcoming book "Clinton Cash," which is generating widespread headlines amid a flurry of reports suggesting it will raise serious questions about Clinton's family foundation.
The donor in question is Canadian mining executive Frank Giustra, a longtime friend of the former president who has given tens of millions to the Clinton Foundation in the past few years. (A couple of hours after the NYT story was published, Giustra issued a defiant statement. We've included that below.)
Becker initially wrote about the February 2007 meeting between Clinton, Giustra, and executives from the state-owned nuclear company Kazatomprom in 2008. The gathering took place at Clinton's home in Chappaqua, New York.
"When I first contacted both the Clinton foundation Mr. Clinton's spokesman and Mr. Giustra, they denied any such meeting ever took place," Becker recalled in footage aired by Fox News on Thursday. However, Becker said Clinton and Giustra both changed their stories after she confronted them with evidence to the contrary.
"And then when we told them, 'Well we already talked to the head of Kazatomprom, who not only told us all about the meeting, but actually has a picture of him and Bill at the home in Chappaqua, and that he proudly displayed on his office wall.' They then acknowledged that yes, the meeting had taken place," Becker continued in the television interview.
The purpose of the meeting, then Kazatomprom President Moukhtar Dzhakishev told The Times, was to discuss Kazakhstan potentially buying a 10% stake in Westinghouse, a US nuclear company. Becker's 2008 story also noted one of Giustra's companies secured a deal to buy uranium deposits from Kazatomprom in 2005.
That agreement was made after Clinton accompanied Giustra on a trip to Kazakhstan. During the trip, Giustra and Clinton met with Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
Clinton issued a public statement praising the Kazakh leader despite his questionable, antidemocratic record. The Times called the praise a "propaganda coup" for Nazarbayev. (he later "won relection" w/ an unbelievable 90% of the vote)
"Just months after the Kazakh pact was finalized, Mr. Clinton's charitable foundation received its own windfall: a $31.3 million donation from Mr. Giustra that had remained a secret until he acknowledged it last month. The gift, combined with Mr. Giustras more recent and public pledge to give the William J. Clinton Foundation an additional $100 million, secured Mr. Giustra a place in Mr. Clintons inner circle," wrote Becker and another reporter, Don Van Natta.
A spokesperson for the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership told Business Insider they are "working on a formal statement" in response to a request for comment on Thursday. Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership is an initiative of the Clinton Foundation that was cofounded by Clinton and Giustra in 2007. A Clinton Foundation spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

Wonder if this was a warning shot over the bow.
So this Uranium One raw info was just quietly posted on FBI site on a Friday before a holiday weekend? I’m glad you happened to come across it, bump!
Friday night data dump before a long weekend?
There’s not much to my eye - letters to Lew & Hussein from Congress + Senate & an NYT article - only thing I’ve seen from F-I/D-J or State Dept. that seemingly has no redactions lol ... the HRC e-mail dump is proving much more fruitful! But if there’s something there Katica should find it ;)
I find it both amazing and dismaying that we, American citizens, accept the scumbags in our government pulling $#!t like this with the regularity of my morning deuce.
WHY do we allow this to be done to us?
HOW can we stop these scumbags, who work for US, from treating us with so little regard and so much distain?
Are we at the point where they must be physically removed from their offices to put an end to these indignities?
By the scruff of the neck and the seat of their pants(uit) works for me.....
