Indictment Handed Out In Russian Bribery Case

BREAKING: Indictment Handed Out In Russian Bribery Case Involving Uranium One, Hillary Clinton

By RYAN SAAVEDRA January 12, 2018

An 11-count indictment was handed out on Friday connected to the alleged Russian bribery scheme involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and Uranium One.

The charges are against Mark Lambert, who is the "former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad." Lambert 54, of Maryland, was charged with "one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering," the DOJ said in a statement.

The charges are connected to the alleged bribery scheme that involves "Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX."

TENEX is the commercial sales arm for Russia's Rosatom, which took full control of Uranium One in 2013.

A report from October revealed that federal agents started collecting evidence in 2009 about Russian officials that were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering connected to the Uranium One deal:

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.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

In December, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered that prosecutors at the DOJ start "interviewing FBI agents about evidence they uncovered in a criminal investigation into a highly-controversial uranium deal that involves Bill and Hillary Clinton."

The Jackass

Once there was a king who hired hisself a prophet to prophet him his weather. Now, one day the king decided to go fishin’ and since the best fishin’ spot was nigh on to where his best girl friend lived, he aimed on wearing him his best clothes.

So, he called in his prophet, and said, “Prophet, is hit a com’in on to rain?” And the prophet said, “Naw King, it ain’t gonna rain, not even a sizzle sozzle.”

So the king got him his fishin’ gear, put on his best clothes, and set off down the road to go fishin’.

Now whilst he was on the road he met up with a farmer a ridin’ on a jackass. The farmer rides up and says, “King, if you ain’t amin’ to get yore clothes wetted you best go home, cause it’s a comin’ on to rain. And it’s gonna rain a cloud buster and a ground soaker.”

The king drewed himself up real tall and says, “Farmer, I hired me a high wage prophet to prophet me my weather, and he allows how it ain’t even gonna rain a toad duster.”

So the king went on his way, and after a while it commenced to rain. And it rained a gully washer and a chunk mover, and the king’s clothes was wetted. And when they dried out, they shanked on him, and when the king’s girl friend seen him she laughed at him. And the king was fit to be tied.

The king went home and throwed out that high wage prophet he had and he called in the farmer. He said, “Farmer, I throwed out that high wage prophet I had and I aim to hire you to prophet me my weather from now on’ard.”

The farmer said, “King, I ain’t no prophet. All I done this mornin’ was to look at my jackass’ ears. Cause when it’s a’ comin’ on to rain, his ears lopes down. And the harder it’s a’ comin’ the lower they lays. This mornin’ they was a’ layin’ and a’ lopin’.”

So the king said, “Go home Farmer, I’ll hire me the jackass.”

And from that day to this ’n the jackasses have been a’ holdin’ down all the high wage government jobs.
