Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee announced a probe has been opened into possible collusion between the Obama administration and Russia.
Grassley is demanding the FBI disclose whether they uncovered the corruption before Obama approved the nuclear deal with Russia, giving Putin control over 20% of America’s uranium reserves.
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.”
Committee aides said there have been requests sent for information to 10 federal agencies involved in the Russian uranium approvals.
Grassley is expected to call any pertinent witnesses soon to begin to determine the depth of the corruption surrounding the Obama-Hillary-Russia deal.
Senator Grassley also said he has no reason to trust Obama’s claim that there was no basis to block the Uranium One deal.
“I am not convinced by these assurances,” Grassley wrote the Homeland Security Department last week. “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.”
Aides said they expected Grassley to ask Sessions questions about a story published in The Hill that disclosed the FBI had uncovered evidence showing Russian nuclear officials were engaged in a racketeering scheme involving bribes, kickbacks and money laundering designed to expand Russian President Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business on U.S. soil.
Even though the evidence was gathered in 2009 and 2010, Obama’s Department of Justice inexplicably waited until 2014 to bring any charges. By the time that was finally done, Obama’s administration gave approval to Russia’s Rosatom to buy a Canadian mining company called Uranium One that controlled 20 percent of America’s uranium deposits.
The committee’s members at the time included former Attorney General Eric Holder and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose husband, former President Bill Clinton, collected large speech fees and millions in charitable donations from Russia and other entities interested in the outcome of the decision.
