Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

Amid the hysteria that Trump is pro-Putin, we should remember this:

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

    America, like much of the world has gone mad. There are no good political leaders almost anywhere in the west. We had an idiot in the white house the last 8 years and it looks we will have another one no matter who wins.

      We need more countries. More, smaller countries. Let a thousand nations bloom. Localism is the history of Europe.

      Walt,

      You might be surprised with Trump. Trump is not a Marxist and Hillary is. Yes,
      Trump is not what is called a conservative, but he is a nationalist.

      Just look at the dark side coming if Hillary wins. Violence, lies, destruction
      of American economic system, just to begin…

      Trump has some advisors not in public eye that can really be respected. I know
      who a couple are, and unlike Trump they cannot stand being in public eye, but
      they are people of ability, and good people.

      When analyzing Trump, keep in mind he wants to win and has an uphill fight
      against the main stream media and numbers of Democrats. Grasp that on
      election day he needs more than double digit lead in polls to win against
      that opposition.

      And my perspective is look at systems my grandparents left behind and what
      they achieved in USA. Big difference.

      Hillary is a known Marxist. Grasp that every few years Marxist change what
      they call themselves. Some of the labels included, Socialist, Communist, Maoist,
      Fascist, and lately in US, Progressive.

      I encourage you to take up the fight against Marxism and Totalitarianism.

          I am on the road and will reply in detail later. However,
          I suspect that asking price for such a move would higher
          that Russia could come up with. And he has not spoken
          to
          Tatar situation. Nor has he considered Turkey in equation.
          No such deal has been made. Consider talking points just
          to befuddle Putin?

    I do not use the contemporary media such as Facebook or Twitter.
    They are just media heavily tracked and responded to by paid
    commentators who follow a script or agenda.

    On media such as this we call them trolls.

    Understand that those who believe in freedom and will fight to defend
    freedom are in minority.

    What is called the main stream media is pro socialist, or pro Marxist or is
    paid to oppose those who want freedom.

    The media such as tv news excerpts a few words that do not convey the
    meaning of a whole reply or indicate the question that the rely was made
    to. Such can make a statement from someone like Trump not reflect the
    meaning and scope of his words.

    Look how much money Soros is putting into Hillary’s campaign and paid
    commentators. Does Soros support real freedom or a socialist or big
    government control of most people?

    Reread this internet posting and ask why he is spending

    Furthermore so many of the comments by Trump criticized in the
    main steam media have been accurate and reasonable responses to
    the specific questions asked. When edited and extracted from full
    text comments and the words are made to appear naïve, wrong headed,
    misguided, etc.

    I sit here in USA and say the medias comments are bullshit. Trumps are
    replies that those who believe in the post WWII America are O.K.

    Some pick out one reply about Crimea and claim that is the road Trump
    will follow. Again, I understand the twist the main stream media is
    putting on his words. I have no issue on discussing the subject with
    Putin. I would vigorously add the full history. That is from Cossack
    times, Tatar times, Catherine’s times, Soviet times, Ukrainian times
    and then add a few points. Who is ethnic majority of all peoples
    who inhabit lands.

    I would point out that Putin’s words saying that people are Russian
    speakers therefore they are Russian is fresh dog shit. The peoples of
    those lands had no choice under Soviets which languages were taught
    in schools. Speaking Russian does not make one Russian!

    Look to India. Many speak the Queen’s English. Does that make
    them English?

    Take Trump’s attempts to stay in bright lights as a way to win the
    election so heavily stacked against him. Rather tell your associates
    of my analysis of comments to others to grasp what the media is
    doing.

    Seek the truth and fight for freedom…
