Emails Reveal Bill Clinton Met With Vladimir Putin Just Before Uranium One Deal

Tyler Durden's picture

If President Trump or anyone even remotely close to his presidency, including his best friend from 2nd grade that he hadn't seen in 40 years, sought to meet with key Russian nuclear officials, in Moscow, just months before the federal government approved a very controversial deal handing Vladimir Putin 20% of U.S. uranium reserves, despite an ongoing investigation into Russian fraud, bribery, extortion and money laundering, it would be the only story played on a 24 x 7 loop on CNN and MSNBC.

Ironically, that is exactly what new emails dug up by The Hill show that Bill Clinton did in June 2010, just months before the Uranium One deal was approved by a committee on which his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sat.  Oh, and did we mention that Bill's Clinton Foundation just happened to collect millions of dollars in bribes donations from Russian sources and Uranium One shareholders shortly after his Moscow meetings?

As you will recall, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), approved the Uranium One transaction in October 2010.  According to new emails revealed by The Hill, just months before that approval, Bill Clinton sought permission from the State Department, run by his wife at the time, to meet Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, the company which was ultimately approved to purchase Uranium One.

As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.


Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.


“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.

While we apparently still don't know whether Bill Clinton was ultimately approved to hold those meetings, his team did confirm that he met with Vladimir Putin at his private residence.

The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.


Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.

Clinton and Putin

Meanwhile, The Hill revealed yet another facet to the story from a "close associate of Bill Clinton" who says that his trip to Russia may have been as much about helping family members “grow investments in their business with Russian oligarchs and other businesses," businesses in which we're sure Bill and Hillary just happened to have a stake, as it was about trading American uranium reserves for Clinton Foundation donations.

A close associate of Bill Clinton who was directly involved in the Moscow trip and spoke on condition of anonymity, described to The Hill the circumstances surrounding how Bill Clinton landed a $500,000 speaking gig in Russia and then came up with the list of Russians he wanted to meet.


The friend said Hillary Clinton had just returned in late March 2010 from an official trip to Moscow where she met with both Putin and Medvedev. The president’s speaker’s bureau had just received an offer from Renaissance Capital to pay the former president $500,000 for a single speech in Russia.


Documents show Bill Clinton’s personal lawyer on April 5, 2010, sent a conflict of interest review to the State Department asking for permission to give the speech in late June, and it was approved two days later.


The Clinton friend said the former president’s office then began assembling a list of requests to meet with Russian business and government executives whom he could meet on the trip. One of the goals of the trip was to try to help a Clinton family relative “grow investments in their business with Russian oligarchs and other businesses,” the friend told The Hill.


“It was one of the untold stories of the Russia trip. People have focused on Uranium One and the speaking fees, but opening up a business spigot for the family business was one only us insiders knew about,” the friend said.


“We knew of some sort of transactions in which the Clintons received funds and Russia received approvals, and the question has always been how and if those two events are connected,” he said. “I think this provides further evidence the two may be connected.”

Of course, Hillary contends that this entire story is a "big nothing-burger" and that everyone should promptly return their focus to the $100,000 worth of Facebook ads that destroyed her campaign and the entire American democratic process...

Aides to the ex-president, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation said Bill Clinton did not have any conversations about Rosatom or the Uranium One deal while in Russia, and that no one connected to the deal was involved in the trip. A spokesman for Secretary Clinton said Thursday the continued focus on the Uranium One deal smacked of partisan politics aimed at benefiting Donald Trump.


“At every turn this storyline has been debunked on the merits. Its roots are with a project shepherded by Steve Bannon, which should tell you all you need to know,” said Nick Merrill. “This latest iteration is simply more of the right doing Trump’s bidding for him to distract from his own Russia problems, which are real and a grave threat to our national security.” Current and former Clinton aides told The Hill that the list of proposed business executives the former president planned to meet raised some sensitivities after Bill Clinton’s speaker bureau got the invite for the lucrative speech.

...and we're confident CNN wholeheartedly agrees.

Something will happen,but not in the way your thinking.

They will both tragically die in their sleep overnight.There aren't many other options left for the deep state.

Dead men/things tell no tales.

If putting shiny bracelets on the Clintons will burn the mother down, let's get it on. We have become complacent in our duty as citizens.

tiwimon's picture

Absolutley! BUT... will not happen. I would love to see the Clintons crash and burn - what a horrid, despicable family. Furthermore - foook the media - its collusion when they idly sit by knowing gawd damn good and well this all stinks - its right there in front of them - very little work to uncover the truth and yet they still harp on trump and russia looking for a pie in teh sky link between trump and russia - fuk all!

Yeah the media is making it obvious, once again, that they're in the bag for the Clintons or really any Democrat at all. Like this cowboy hat wearing retard critter from FL.

Bingo, bingo.  You remember the FBI files that suddenly showed up on a white house table when Ken Star was investigating HIllary when her husband Bill was president.  The most secure building besides the NSA building in the world and it just shows up.  The White House asked for FBI background (essentially a dump) on no telling how many people and they shoiuldn't have been able.  But nothing came of it because the information was already out to the Clintons and they where scared of being outedd.

Isn't it funny that no matter what they always get out, because the FBI has information on everybody and their family and there is alot of information that many in power and congress and other places that don't want out.  What many don't understand is the FBI can check you out without any crime being commited.  Even if a crime was commited or more, they may not do anything depending on what the game is.  That is one reason why Jay Edgar Hoover was able to stay in power for decades because he had dirt on everybody and used it to his advantage.

The funny thing is that Hoover never believed a Mafia exists and word is the reason why he said that and never went ham on them is the fact that the Mafia had dirt on him at one time.

You're right! NOTHING WIL HAPPEN.  Here's why:

Trump can't doing anything about this except continue to watch the demise of the United States and I'm sure he wil be blamed for it.

He has to many compromised filthy pedophile pigs permeated all over Washington DC trying to cover their own asses from geting thrown in prison.

The president is the head law enforcement officer of the USA, says so in that old parchment,not Sessions.

DJT can do whatever he wants with the Cintons, but isn't by choice.

11b40's picture

You are correct regarding Sessions.  He is protecting the swamp.

You are wrong about Trump not being able to do anytjhing.  If he really wants to drain the swamp, here is how you set the stage for pulling the plug at the FBI.

1.) Simply declare Rosenstein to be too compromised to remain as #2 at Justice under Sessions, and have him removed.  Trump does not need permission to fire him.

2.) Replace him with a hand-picked bulldog prosecutor from flyover country far from DC who is really on Trump's team.  This requires no Congressional approval.

3.) Once the new #2 is in place, fire Sessions.  The #2 man becomes acting AG.  Congress & the media will go ballistic, but so what.  The Senate must approve a new AG, but from Trump's perspective, he won't need one.  He can just let the RINOS in the Senate stew in their own jucies.

4.) The new guy can then get rid of Meuller, end his investigation, and also elease the NDA for this controversial witness.

5.) Based on revelations surrounding the Uranium One issue, a new investigation can be opened ion multiple fronts into the Clintons, Comey, Meuller, Rosenstein, Loretta, Holder, et al.

Just takes a real desire and some balls.

Takes more than those.  

Anyone that just wades in and tries to be that blunt about what needs to be done will fail- period.

Trump knows this swap.  Give him time to work it.   If it takes 4 years, so what?  He can't undo 20+ years of shit in his first year in office.

We live in a fucking CNN world, where everyone thinks they should know what's going on behind the scenes 24/7-  people actually get offended when they don't know what today's bombing sites will be beforehand;

Just doesn't work like that.

IMO, this is the final battle between the NWO and the people of the world who believe in what the United States used to stand for.

If the Clintons and their criminal helpers can walk away from this - the greatest scandal in US history and in terms of greatest risk to national security only possibly matched by Bill Clinton and the missing Los Alamos hard drive - then they will have proven that the laws that govern this country no longer matter to the NWO, and we essentially live under a NWO dictatorship.

This is it - the fight for the soul of the United States as envisaged by our Founding Fathers. If we fail, our children and their children, are completely and totally fucked.

If US history is any guide, the Clintons and everyone else involved should be executed for treason, as were the Rosenbergs.

If not, the ones executed will be us and our children.

You must be referring to Molycorp, the rare earth producer and the super magnet technology President Nixon and family sold to China and profited handsomely.  It was part of trade deal in opening China in 70's.  Everyone in Wash. is corrupt

This is not now or was then, ever a concern for Mueller, Comey, and others complicit with this act of treason.

Lots of former and current elected officials and intel community members have to answer for their crimes.

I'm pretty sure at this point CNN/MSM could actually release videos of: Buba cigaring Monica, Hillary spitting on a minority, Obama getting fingered by Reggie, and CCTV from Comet Pizza


And the Dems/libs/etc would still not care and defend them until blue in the face.

And now you know why the Hollywood Panty Raid took place... Weinstein agreed/walked into the fall guy roll.  Time and the amount of corruption will tell how far this goes.  The news is full of distraction pieces.

YUP you could find cold hard evidence against them.  And still nothing would happen to any of them.

Russia and ther Clinton's!

Russia tells Britain give back the Falklands before telling US what to do.

RUSSIA has told Britain it should "clean its conscience" and give back the Falkland Islands before it criticises them over their involvement in Ukraine. Moscow's ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin made the shocking remarks when responding to his British counterpart Matthew Rycroft at a UN security council meeting in New York. (Daily Express 4 Feb 2017)


Secretary Clinton on Falklands during press conference with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Buenos Aires 2010 : 'As to the first point, we want very much to encourage both countries to sit down. Now, we cannot make either one do so, but we think it is the right way to proceed. So we will be saying this publicly, as I have been, and we will continue to encourage exactly the kind of discussion across the table that needs to take place .'


They forget that a lot of territory was 'taken' in the 19th century (much of a norm).
