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.

OK. But before we get further into Russia, let's not forget about China. I am willing to bet Slick made treasonous deals to sell western technology and military R & D to China that will dwarf this uranium deal with Russia!

Start digging boys!

China is just loving this Russia thing.  You are right-China is the big player in bribing the Clintons. Giustra (Bill's pal and the guy that pulled the Uranium One deal together) collected it in Canada.  That is why the Clinton's love Canada. Canada is the dirtbag conduit for criminal activity.

It would be easier if the Clintons took their bribes in the traditional manner of plain brown envelopes passed under the table. But I suppose when you get to the big leagues the sheer volume of cash would be tedious.

‘We gave you uranium, you repaid us by bombing Belgrade’: Putin slams US over nuclear treaties"...

"What we got in return is well-known – a complete disregard for our national interests, support for separatism in the Caucasus, a circumvention of the UN Security Council, the bombing of Yugoslavia, the invasion of Iraq, and so on. The US must have seen the state of our nuclear weapons and economy and decided to do away with international law.”....

“We destroyed everything, and then our American partners said – ‘Not yet, we don’t have money.’ So, they have a dollar printing press, yet they don’t have money. But we, on the other hand, do?” said Putin with heavy sarcasm."....

And starting with G.H.W. Bush they ALL FUCKING "LIED" and "KEEP LYING" in contradiction to the Treaties they "SIGNED"!!!

Same as it ever was!

If the only thing that results from Trump's defeat of Clinton on 11/4/16 is the permanent removal of the Clintons from public life, Trump's Presidency will have been important and a success.  If it somehow results in a return of the rule of law, it will have been a raging success.  And if it against all odds resulted in the destruction of the deep state.......

Neoliberal snowflakes support criminals because of Bush. They were kids during Bush and now they're brainwashed to follow those who have hurt them, it makes sense, identity politics driven, these snowflakes are television mind controlled minds. Bush I, Clinton I, Bush II and Obama were all one world government globalist. All committed the most serious treason against our country. We voted for a new president to rebuild economy for all Americans, but these criminals and brainwashed communist snowfreaks are trying to destroy a new president.

Ghordius's picture

fine comment. but your side has it's own brand of snowflakes, too

no, I am not American, I talk from an European perspective. your allies, in case you know the concept

Clinton? I am amazed nobody here remembers when it was the Chinese that were flooding the US with political money, all through the Clintons and the Dems

but Reagan, Bush I, Clinton I and Obama can't be compared with Bush II. never

because Bush II took the accumulated goodwill of a dozen presidencies before him... and threw it out of the window

Bush II belongs in front of a war crime tribunal. but that's not even the point

the point is that Bush II took a reliable if difficult ally... and made it an untrustworthy one

and no, I am not even willing to attack your Mr. Trump. he has not done yet anything... on the level of Bush II, regardless of what your media, from the leftist snowflakes to the snowflakes in jackboots are arguing about

in fact, from my perspective President Trump is just burying corpses... which Bush II caused, and Obama let to rot around

you have had 8 years of Democrats love for Obama... because of Bush II. fine, it might have caused some bellyache on the Right

but you, Americans, have, eventually, to face that Bush II was... unique. and the cause of many things, in the past and in the future

it might take three exceptional presidents to even get back to where you were, before Bush II, and three exceptional congresses, too

and... I remember Nixon, mind. a saint, compared to Bush II

rant end

I suspect it is worse than that, worse than Bush II, worse than Globalism or world Communism.

I suspect we are about to enter a war for Israel with Iran.

Maybe a high tech war that looks very different, but many people will get hurt and police state will expand.

But the Monroe Doctrine seems to indicate USA has been an Empire since much earlier than 1823.

Unless you think our United Fruit, Sugar, Bananas, Produce are more like East India Company corporatism. We used our Marine Corps to support our Companies in Latin America.

Seem we have always been an empire.

Game over for a free america.  Trump is obviously emasculated and 0 justice will be served. Waiting for the inevitable election of a liberal president, at which time all ducks for the deep state will be lined up. The rainbow colored iron fist of the zionist will rule our country utterly.  The status quo for the enabler of this level of evil will persist until a higher source intervenes. Seems like no human can turn the tide including trump, however well-meaning and capable he may be.

Well maybe a lot of people are watching the mistakes that Donald Trump makes... so another Populist that makes it to the White House has better advise and can avoid some things.

Bill and Hillary could murder an infant on video, and drink it's blood. Then with video still rolling they chop it into pieces and cook it stove top. They could eat it on video with a side of fava beans and a nice chianti and even burp and laugh at us. Neither of them would spend one fucking hour in jail.

These dirty, evil, scumbags wouldn't even be prosecuted! 

Move along as nothing is going to happen. The Clinton's deep-state cronies have already castrated Sessions and they have dirt on too many in power.

So Bill Clinton meets with Putin to facilitate a uranium deal and meets with Loretta Lynch to facilitate a coverup deal, but the President Mueller is investigating is Trump.

That makes complete sense to me.

Carl Ican, Presidential Advisor on Oil futures served for a hot minute, affected legislation to raise the prices, pocketed $200 Million and promptly quit.

The Clinton Foundation got donations of $120 Million not for themselves, but for good works.

So much more suspect money is unexplained in this feckless Administration.
