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.

I'm in the middle of a history of the Byzantine Empire - for eleven hundred years good rulers were followed by bad rulers were followed by good rulers until the Muslim horde went jihad on the the entire region.  One thing was consistent: when the new rulers came to power they didn't waste any time rooting out the minions of the previous administrations - right after they cut off the head of the snake.

What is interesting is Constantinople was first conquered by the Venetians in 1202. The siege was lead by the Doge Dandalo who was blind and was 91 years old.

Maybe Putin could be a scary time leader.

But arkansas bill is so full of shit now that he would be useless in any scenario.

Don Johnson would be semi cool.

Check out Sweet Bougainvillea.

He recorded that with Dickey Betts and the Allman Brothers Band.

I wish I had complimented him on that.

What the fuck is old Don up to these days?

I`ll be very surprised if an ex president and first lady are ever indicted over anything......

An unwritten rule in D.C. is to not prosecute another political parties ex presidents, because then your political parties  president will get hounded.....

Doesn't look like Trump has a party, so what has he got to lose. And look ar it this way, what a great parting shot to the GOP and the dems if ge procecuted  her ass on the way out. After he has released the JFK and Area 51 files that is.

If this Russia/Uranium thing is as big of a deal as the media, "investigators" and DC make it out to be, then there needs to be immediate indictments of the Clintons and Obama, et. al.  There is more than adequate evidence.  If the DOJ, at the request of Mueller and the FBI are unwilling to indict, the whole thing must be officially declared a non issue and needs to be dismissed and forgotten.  Americans should fear the invisible government running DC, not Russia.  So many stupid Kool Aid drinkers.

This ought to be kept away from Mueller because he will just whitewash the whole thing.

The corrosive nature of this wicked pontificate is destroying all things that are true, loving, and beautiful in its path. The smoke of Satan first mentioned by Paul VI has blackened the whole interior of a building in flames. Matrimony and family; Confession, contrition, and true repentance; Love and Truth; Priesthood and the Blessed Sacrament: all tarnished, all in ruins, all disfigured by evil thoughts and evil deeds of the Covenant-Breakers of a disgraced class of men intoxicated by their own filth. https://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2017/10/homosexual-union-defining-imag...

Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State sold more weapons of mass destruction than any human being, male or female, in the history of the world.  She is the world's death merchant.  If I see one more Hillary book tour interview with this smiling, happy freak of nature, my head will explode. 

Under Clinton's leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure -- derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) -- represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

Bill can now run for president after cozying with the Russians, because the news will say it was for a "reasonable and just purpose". Nothing wrong here. Move along.

I expect WJC's trip involved real "golden showers" and much more.  Maybe this is where Fusion got the idea.

This is National Enquirer material.

Be that as it may, the evidence of Clinton-Russian collusion and the undeniable appearance of bribes paid to the Clinton Foundation together represent 100 times the evidence that has been presented to date of any Trump-Russian collusion regarding the last Presidential election.  No....wait...my math is off.  There is no evidence of Trump-Russian collusion, so facts known about the uranium deal are infinitely greater than anything demonstrated about Trump.

And I can't help thinking whenever I'm reading anything related to Trump-Russian colllusion to fix the election that the alleged meddling is basically that the Russians helped publicize the truth about Hillary Clinton, which implies what a sin it is to let voters know the truth about a candidate prior to election day.  Heaven help all of us from people using the truth to "meddle" with elections.

No one talks about all the meddling the CIA has done in other country elections around the world for decades.  All of a sudden we are surprised and outraged the Russkies buy $100K of Facebook ads ?  The fake hyperventilation is just Deplorable.

I'd love to know the dirt these fucks must have on the media and dumbocrats for the media and dumbocrats to keep carrying their water and staying on the sinking clinton ship. The logical thing for the dumbocrats and media to do would be to distance themselves from these fuckers as it'd gain them points with the sheeple. That they aren't doing it seems to show there must be some dirt they don't want slick willy and killary to share.

Everything could be considered a distraction from Globalism, crushing US Middle Class Wealth & Compensation, offshoring Taxbase, Corporate power to harvest slave labor overseas, control DC Politics, get tax advantages and more deeper into State Capitalism.

With Bankrupt cities and states, pensions, war chest, federal budget, Health Care System, usury, 97 different kinds of taxes.

- Anyone notice the inflation in Security Industry? Yeah Florida University paid $500K for speaking event security.
- Plenty of Inflation in Education, Govt compensation rates, housing, transpo, Defense Contracts, Weapons, War Operations, highway work, infrastructure work, Lobbying takes much more money each year, entertaining clients is getting very expensive with all the inflation!

They need to pay attention to key players in Uranium One, Ian Telfer and Frank guistra - money trail besides the Russians.

Clinton is a sleeeeeeeze - guilty as sin - special council Muller needs to go he was involved, according to the press along with Rosenstien in supposedly investagating the Russian brbes and etc. and they seemed to have covered up for the Clintons along with Eric Sleeeeze Holder.
