Sen. Chuck Grassley and his Judiciary Committee will be holding hearings on the bribery charges that link Hillary Clinton to the Kremlin, The Hill reported. Just how ironic is it that special prosecutor Robert Mueller covered up the Russian bribery scheme run under the Obama regime. And now he is investigating alleged collusion by Donald Trump and Russia, where no proof has ever been found. He should be fired immediately unless he testifies that Holder ordered him to hide the investigation.
Russian officials were found guilty of paying bribes to help the deal on Uranium One and their acquisition of over 20 percent of all uranium mined in the United States. The State Department signed off on the deal and the Clinton Foundation gets $145 million from investors in Uranium One but we now have learned through FBI documents that Russia supplied the money that was transferred to the Clinton Foundation.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the committee chairman, on Wednesday raised the issue in public during questioning of Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an oversight hearing.
The senator cited a series of The Hill stories that showed the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear officials were involved in a racketeering scheme as early as 2009, well before the uranium deal was approved.
“According to government documents and recent news reports, the Justice Department had an ongoing criminal investigation for bribery, extortion, money laundering, into officials for a Russian company making purchase of Uranium One,” Grassley said. “That purchase was approved during previous administration and resulted in Russians owning 20 percent of America’s uranium mining capacity.
“What are you doing to find out how Russian takeover of American uranium was allowed to occur despite criminal conduct by Russian company that the Obama administration approved to make the purchase?” he asked Sessions.
Sessions responded: “I would offer that some people have gone to jail in that transaction already, but the article talks about other issues. Without confirming or denying existence of any particular investigation, I would say I hear your concerns and they will be reviewed.”
Senate Judiciary aides said the committee had sent requests for information to 10 federal agencies involved in the Russian uranium approvals.
Now comes the $64,000 question. Did Obama know about the bribery before the deal was approved? We know the FBI knew. So, did Obama sign off on the deal knowing the criminal actions by the Russians when they bribed Hillary and other officials?
But the truth is there isn’t a single member of the Republican leadership either in the House or Senate who will refer charges against any of these people and even if they did the odds are Attorney General Jeff Sessions would refuse to prosecute them. This is truly a huge scandal and the investigation will probably continue through at least part of the run up to the 2018 elections, which could be really bad news for Democrats.
Grassley is holding his ground on this one:
“I am not convinced by these assurances. The sale of Uranium One resulted in a Russian government takeover of a significant portion of U.S. uranium mining capacity. In light of that fact, very serious questions remain about the basis for the finding that this transaction did not threaten to impair U.S. national security.”
