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.

In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. said: "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia."

The FBI and DOJ have for a long time had plenty of evidence to prosecute and imprison the Clintons and Comey.

That they don't tells you all you need to know.

Sessions won't go after one of his own, it is his sworn Swamp pact that he protect them at all costs.

Hillary Clinton could go out on the street today and stab a hundred babies to death, Sessions and the FBI would do NOTHING.

Even the local police would come up with an excuse for her.

I would think Trump leaves the Clintons alone hoping she runs again in 2020. She's poison to the Democrats. Put her in jail she becomes a martyr to Snowflake-i-stan.

The Corp;orate Dems and Berniecrats are at each others' throats. Don't do anything to unify them: Hellary in jail.

Would you believe that the above clause is placed into a government document, that you must sign, in order to get money to rebuild after a flood?   The clause is somewhat vague, but it can certainly be interpreted as, you must not fight against the roll out of the New World Order.    I'll show you the truth below, but first a story of the Red Pill.

We can indeed be thankful that the meticulous record-keeping that Hillary has always demanded of the Clinton Foundation, along with the most stringent auditing by the whitest of white-shoe Wall St Accounting Firms – will FINALLY put to rest any scurrilous rumour-mongering that there is somehow “something amiss” with Hillary's Vision To Help The Needy via the nation’s premier Charitable Organisation., The Clinton Foundation.

Indeed, these never-ending attacks on President Clinton and Secretary Clinton, not to mention the the Clinton Fraudation and the lovely, charming and talented Chelsea, are the very lowest form of petty partisan politics.  I worry deeply that the sterling Clinton legacy will be tarnished by these shameful attacks and that the lovely, charming and talented Chelsea will not be able to carry on the Clinton dynasty.

No possible connection with Anwans, might there be?  Hmmm....

Yea, but wtf does this have to do with Pres Trump and the Special Prosecutor investigating the Russian connection to the election?  LMAO  "pay no attention to that man behind the curtain".  LOL

This is interesting. All the evidence of Trump colluding with Russians - all of it - from hotel room meetings, to Jr.'s emails, to failures of members of his staff to disclose that they were Russian agents, to inviting actual spies into the Oval Office, all of this is just circumstantial, fake news, reported by the Deep State and Big Media to distract us from what's really going on.

BUT, The Hill, a Washington gossip rag, says it finds emails about Bill Clinton officially requesting clearance from the US State Department  to meet with Rossatron about a uranium deal that probably was in US interests - a meeting that NEVER TOOK PLACE, (probably because the State Dept. took their time on the approval) - and suddenly this is definitive proof of Clintonian malfeasance.

Oh, but a "a friend" said "one of the goals of the trip was to try to help a Clinton family relative 'grow investments in their business with Russion oligarchs'.... Well. If "a friend" says something about a Clinton, then it must be true, musn't it?

Recall, if you will, that the US has been buying uranium from the Russians for decades. In fact, at this time, most of the fuel in US reactors comes from decommissioned Russian warheads. Think this may have anything to do with that? No, that would be OBVIOUS, and you guys like to work in the shadows, don't you?

Fucking utter, blinded bullshit.

This one is for the tin foil nutters, but the deal is that Russia is giving Uranium to NK which will release a dirty bomb on the US. Last time fukushima happened nutters bought radio iodine but these are actually better. fewer side effects and some real protection??

Hey, what's the big deal? With our southern central Asia, eastern European, and former sattellite nations military bases surrounding Russia, with Israel grinding away at the march to Iran, and the likely escalation that will occur when direct hits against Russia in Syria begin: the Russians will send the uranium back to us, a couple pounds at a time.

So when will we hear about all the illegal Israeli corruption? Bush?

Oh, thats right they're our ally. They would never do nothing like 9/11, Las Vegas, or USS Liberty.....

What did Russia do to us again?

steveo77's picture

JWO info, writing themselves into our nations laws to favor Israel in business dealings.

That would be hard to believe if (((they))) wern't the ones doing it.

This doesn't surprise me one bit....

I got a feeling we're gonna see the false flag to end all false flags very soon.

Most likely a big ass bomb/missile that will be blamed on N Korea, Iran, China or Russia.

Is it just me or is Trump getting more PC by the day?

So, if the Clintons deal with the Russians, it's OK, but if Trump talks to them it's not ?

Trump has been dealing with Russians for years. Doesn't really seem to be the problem.

Bill Clinton did what?

I'm sure there's a perfectly innocent explanation.

Where Bill Clinton is involved, there are usually several explanations, one of which might be innocent.

Holy crap!!!! Clinton colluded with the Russians!!!!

Yeah, funny when you consider the sore looser constantly accused Trump of colluding with the Russians...

so trump lets all this ride, does not lift a finger against, the "good people" clintons, so biz as usual. how do we get rid of all of these scumbags, is there any way ?

Because a good prosecutor gets his or her case as airtight as possible before proceeding..

An example of a failure to do that is why OJ got aquuitted.

This isnt just conspiracy theory...this shit is real...and it is treason right out in the open..

If that Cunt had gotten elected, she would have been actively helping Putin facilitate a takeover of the US. Dont't misunderstand, the US is still in deep trouble due to the Cuntons faciitating the dissemination of our national secrets to China and Russia, but at least it does not appear to be ongoing

Examining the narrative of Russia coming from Clinton...reminds me of a child that says they would never take money from daddy's wallet, when there would have been no way for the child to know money was missing from daddy's wallet

I just want to see the Rosenberg trial schedule...

yes folks this is that bad, cuntlery and Bill deserve the electrified love seat..fry those mother fuckers

I think you nailed it Shadwell...

I liked his fight back at the pathetic SNL Wing of the Dem Senate caucus... and some of his Cheshire Cat expressions as he explained why he couldn't answer questions. He's not a bulldog or a headline guy, but could very well be more like The Little Engine That Could, but only within the lane of his commitment to ethics in justice.

I'm warming to him...
