DOJ Prosecutors Asking FBI for Details on Uranium One Deal
- Hussein Obama, Clinton’s, Comey & Mueller in ‘the Soup’
Prosecutors are asking FBI agents about evidence discovered during a probe of a uranium deal critics have linked to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
The network news cited multiple law enforcement officials as saying the prosecutors are acting on orders from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into what has become known as the Uranium One deal.
In Y 2010, The Obama Admin permitted the sale of US uranium mining facilities to Russia’s state atomic energy company.
At the time, Hillary Clinton was Mr. Hussein Obama’s Secretary of State. The State Department was1 of 9 agencies that approved the deal, according to the network news.
It has been reported that as the Russians assumed control of the facility, Uranium One’s Chairman used his family foundation to make 4 donations to the Clinton Foundation totaling $2.35-M.
In addition, Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow from a bank with links to the transaction, according to the NY-T’s.
A veteran law enforcement official, who was briefed on the initial FBI probe into the uranium transaction, said that there were allegations of corruption surrounding the deal, but no charges were filed.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has denied playing any role in the uranium deal.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, noted in a letter to Rep. Bob Goodlatte, (R-Va), that federal lawyers would recommend to AG Sessions whether the dormant investigation should be reopened or whether a special counsel should be appointed.
FBI agents who looked into the case are being questioned by prosecutors in an effort to update them on the investigation.
President Donald Trump has been very critical of the deal and has pointedly accused the Clintons of being involved.
Fox News reported Senator John Barrasso, (R-Wy), has expanded his investigation into the deal.
Earlier this month, Senator Barrasso, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, sent letters to the heads of the US Energy Department and the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission asking for a list of documents about the deal.
