"Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium..."

"... the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews. Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show...."

Looks like Trump infiltrated the Obama administration years ago. That's gotta be it.
Now the Democrats are grateful for HW for providing a distraction.
But then, if the MSM won't report on the Menendez trial or the clusterfuck that is Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, then why would I expect them to report on this?

OT:I am looking forward to the next WikiLeak.

Ah! I knew the Russia investigation would pay off! Finally!
Oh.

Amadeus 48 said...

What a mystery! Who was in charge of this investigation that never went anywhere? According to Powerline, it was Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, and James Comey--the Larry Moe and Curley of American justice.

Collusion with the Russians certainly did affect the 2016 election, but it wasn't Trump's collusion that did it. More and more clear that Hillary had much more collusion going on and more and more clear that accusing Trump was a preemptive attempt to change the focus.

EDH said...

Better than firing Mueller...

If these uranium revelations hold up, why wouldn't Trump use the occasion to grab the high ground by firing Rosenstein and McCabe in a flourish of publicity, thereby undermining Mueller, Clinton, Obama, Holder, Lynch and Comey?

Wouldn't it be the political judo move of all time?

narciso said...

And weissman is Mueller's deputy, suppsrdly investigating money laundering, he failed to get anyone but a low level official, mikerin, which is headed by a very well connected Russian executive. Onnthe American side, the CEO was this fellow:

I wonder if it is possible to have executive hearings instead of congressional ones. I think the ratings for a hearing where Trump called the heads of the FBI and the Justice Dept. up in front of the American people to answer a few questions would be pretty big league.

Ah. Just last night when someone was asking what did the Obama administration ever do for Russia. Serendipity.

Matthew Sablan said...

CNN has a breaking news alert! About the FBI interviewing Spicer. Mot years of Russian collusion covered up by Obama officials. Embarrassing.

Fred Drinkwater said...

My awareness of this story and of the lack of timely reporting were major factors influencing my votes last year. Thank you, Internet.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Get into Ukraine next, and then do the UK's efforts to funnel intel to Dems and Dem-friendly organizations.

THEN let's talk about the concerted efforts by our own Media (some of whom are partially owned by foreigners!) to actively support Trump during the primary in order to give Hilldog an easy win in the general. They sat on that pussy grab audio, you know...let's start talking about why.

None of this is surprising to anyone who has paid attention! It's borderline depressing to see lots of smart people treating this like some new discovery--oh gee, did the Obama administration cover up Russian wrongdoing, including big payments to the Clinton Foundation, in order to not disturb their fucking terrible Iran deal and to help Hillary?

The key is to always remember: they assumed they'd win and they know the Media is theirs. No WAY did they ever believe any of this stuff (to include the likely rampant FISA abuse/unwarranted unmaskings) would come to light--President Hillary wouldn't have any reason to bring it up!

Delicious.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Just to add: yet another reason those NeverTrumpers who voted for Hillary or the McMuffin were so stupid--just keeping Hillary out has made these "discoveries" possible.

A vote for Trump was a vote for a CHANCE at an actual investigation/accounting of the slimy shit the Obama Admin wallowed in for 8 years. A slim chance, to be sure, but a CHANCE.

The fact Trump can be held accountable, while Clinton never could is one of the reasons I preferred his particular disaster scenario to hers.

Not saying I wanted him to win. There really was no winning this outing.

YoungHegelian said...

Oh, screw worrying about the Russkies trying to mess with trivial things like our supply of uranium!

Worry about the important things! Fr'instance, did the Russkies compromise strategic assets like Atlantic city casinos & the Miss Universe pageant?

Focus, people! Focus!

Matthew Sablan said...

CNN will spend more time talking about Russia's use of Pokemon Go than this corruption I bet.

Michael said...

Honestly, has anyone ever been in as much denial about who they are as Hillary Clinton?

She's going around saying the election was crooked because of Russia, and she's the one who took money from Russia, not Trump.

And she's saying the Republicans put a sexual harasser in the White House-- not that she'd know anything about them!

I'm a good ways from being excited about Trump winning the last election, but the more she talks, the more I want, like Brad DeLong, to keep her very far from power. At least Trump seems to know who he is, even if he overestimates himself.

Huh. If the FBI caught me two years ago accepting bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, I don't guess that anything much would have come of it, right?

MaxedOutMama said...

Lovely, just lovely. Again - there really is not any reason to trust the FBI, CIA, etc any more. They've been suborned.

And yes, per Matthew Sabian, this type of thing was a major reason why I voted for Trump. He sets my teeth on edge, but he wasn't Hillary and I assumed there would be some real scrutiny of him. Plus I did and do like some of his policies. So far he's working out much better than I expected. My 2016 vote was really "I don't want to officially become a banana republic."

I am very concerned about voting for him again. I think he's too old and I am worried it will just be another set of ticks in place sucking the blood of the body republic.

Michael K said...

"Why did Trump choose Rosenstein as DAG?"

Inga's conspiracy theories aside, The Democrats blocked Trump's appointments just as they blocked Bush's in 2001 until the depleted Defense Department missed the Muslim conspiracy,

Lessee. Obama resigned, right? And appointed Joe Biden president. Joe Biden resigned without naming a Vice President, which made Nancy Pelosi president. Nancy Pelosi named John McCain her vice president and immediately resigned upon his congressional approval, making the Republican runner-up to Obama in 2008 the new President. As a gesture of bipartisanship, John McCain then named Nancy Pelosi vice president. Her house seat was filled, in a special election, by Harvey Weinstein.

Your own OTOH are just handed down from whatever you read in some conservative right-wing blog. You are so afraid to have a thought of your own that you run it by the right-wing blogosphere to determine whether or not it's ok to say, first. Probably originates from your nanny's smothering of you as a younger, twatty-er Michael Mengele KKK.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

"Contrary to the Left's favorite narrative, any Russia scandal has always been worse for Hillary Clinton than for Donald Trump. Recent revelations confirmed this Tuesday, and even implicated the special prosecutor at the center of the Trump-Russia investigation, former FBI director Robert Mueller.

In 2010, the Obama administration approved a controversial deal giving Russian company Rosatom partial control of Canadian mining company Uranium One (and with it 20 percent of U.S. uranium), just as Russians paid former president Bill Clinton for speeches and Hillary Clinton was secretary of State. To make matters worse, the FBI had already gathered evidence of Russian corruption in the U.S. but kept it secret just when it would have mattered most, The Hill reported Tuesday.

Officials also acquired documents and an eyewitness account corroborating earlier reports that Russian officials had routed million of dollars into the U.S. to benefit the Clinton Foundation just as Hillary Clinton served on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, which endorsed the Uranium One deal.

This racketeering scheme was allegedly conducted "with the consent of higher level officials" in Russia who "shared the proceeds," The Hill reported.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) did not bring immediate charges upon learning of the corruption in 2010, but kept investigating the matter for nearly four more years, leaving the American public and Congress in the dark."

Balls - Your vampire party like money.

In 2011, John Podesta joins the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts," Schweizer said. "About two months after he joins the board, a Russian entity called Rusnano puts a billion rubles -- which is about 35 million dollars -- into John Podesta’s company. Now, what is Rusnano? Rusnano is not a private company, Steve. It is a fund directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact, the Russian science minister called Rusnano Putin’s child. So you have the Russian government investing in one of John Podesta’s businesses in 2011, while he is an advisor to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.”

Bill and Hillary Clinton received large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Bill Clinton was paid a cool $500,000 (well above his normal fee) for a speech in Moscow in 2010. Who footed the bill? An investment firm in Moscow called Renaissance Capital, which boasts deep ties to Russian intelligence. The Clinton Foundation itself took money from Russian officials and Putin-connected oligarchs. They also took donations from:

Viktor Vekselberg, a Putin confidant who gave through his company, Renova Group

Andrey Vavilov, a former Russian government official who was Chairman of SuperOx, a research company that was part of the “nuclear Cluster” at the Russian government’s Skolkovo research facility
