House Opens Investigation Into Hillary's Approval Of Russia Uranium Deal

Tyler Durden's picture

Today is shaping up to be a fairly bad day for Hillary Clinton.  Just moments after the House Judiciary and Oversight committees announced an investigation into Comey's handling of the Hillary email investigation, the House Intelligence and Oversight committees have also announced an investigation in the Uranium One deal which handed Russia 20% of America's uranium reserves and landed the Clinton Foundation some $145 million in donations and a $500,000 speaking gig for former President Bill Clinton.

As we've pointed out over the past couple of days, the Uranium One deal has recently resurfaced in public discussion after a former FBI informant came forward suggesting that he personally witnessed Russian operatives in a massive bribery, extortion and money laundering scheme discussing efforts to curry favor with the Clintons. The informant has requested an audience with certain Congressional committees but has so far been silenced by an NDA he signed with the FBI.

Here are a couple of our recent posts on the topic as a recap:

As the The Hill points out, the Uranium One investigation will initially look into whether or not the FBI bothered to investigate the circumstances surrounding the approval of the deal which occurred during their ongoing investigation.

Two powerful House committees on Tuesday announced a joint investigation into the 2010 sale of a U.S. uranium company to a Russian company.

 

The two panels, the House Intelligence and Oversight Committees, will first probe whether there was an FBI investigation into the deal, approved when former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

 

Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) on Monday cited “very, very real concerns about why we would allow a Russian-owned company to get access to 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.”

 

“It’s important we find out why that deal went through.”

 

A confidential informant has come forward to the committees, according to Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), and the two panels are currently in discussions with the Justice Department to release that individual from a nondisclosure agreement.

Meanwhile, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes told reporters earlier that it's too early to determine whether Hillary will be called to testify.

“It’s a little premature. Let us first determine whether or not there was an open investigation by FBI or DOJ and then we’ll get back to you with more information,” Nunes told reporters.

Of course, Hillary once againg reiterated that concerns over the approval of the Uranium One deal, a deal which netted her family foundation $145 million in donations, by a committee on which she served is nothing but "politically motivated bologna."

Time for the House to look into the Awan spy ring in Congress.  Rao Abbas is still logging into government servers as an IT contractor and dumping tons of data.  Time to put a stop to it.

The real question is why hasn't AG Sessions ripped up the NDA.  Either he has his own investigation going or he is protecting some of the political class.  I sure hope it is the former but seeing Session operate has me believing the latter.

..USA is the most litigious, lawyer-stocked SHITHOLE on the planet and NOT ONE, SINGLE attorney can step forward to prosecute this Hildabeast Cunt?

Par for the course....

Which reminds me of this sage story we can tell all of our grandkids.....

There's THIS HOTTIE middle aged woman who goes in for her pap smear and other items to her gynecologist.

Lady is all spread eagle, her legs in stirrups, the gyno checking out her wares. She stutters at first, then regains her composure and asks her gyno "....DOC, my husband and I really

love anal sex!But I am worried, can I get pregnant by my guy pounding my Hershey Highway?"

DOC doesn't miss a beat replying "...you bet, where do you think lawyers come from?"

 

TRUE STORY!

They will burn Hillary to placate the masses and take the eyes and talk off of pizzagate in order to spare the other 40% of corrupt pedophile politicians involved. They need a LOUD sacrificial patsy to drown out that story.

No more House Committee Investigations!

Get this to the proper authorities now.

Convene grand juries.

@ Dirty,

This is the Psychological Operation performance of the show. More Scripted False Narratives to continue via Criminal Deep State and their minion Presstitute’s.

The

Tyrannical Lawlessness

will continue amongst these Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths will continue with Impunity.

i'm beginning to think there will be "some" justice with this mess.

while i'd prefer to see pizzagate justice, any will be a welcome sight with what's been meted out in the last 50yrs.

Assange and WikiLeaks are the wild card.

The intel agencies may attempt to take out Assange, but the files will be released.

If Assange is killed, there will be 100's more to take his place.

 

The Russia hacking the DNC is a provable falsehood.

Seth Rich was murdered by poitical operatives for turning over a thumb drive to WikiLeaks.

 

Mountains of evidence are in the hands of WikiLeaks and the US government is stymied as to what to do next....

 

People in high places are going to be exposed for their horrendous crimes.

Lots of war criminals, traitors, thieves, and perjurers.

Trump says to expect a Christmas present!

WillyGroper's picture

i have always been ambivalent about Assange.  i lean toward as asset fed info by some good folks caught in a bad situation.  scroll down to IT APPEARS THERE IS MAJOR SUBSTANCE TO THE LATEST "WIKI" RELEASE.  that ain't Assange.  http://www.anotherjsserver.com/zv1.html

 

clearly, you like many think in binary terms...either/or, black/white, yes/no, 0/1 red/blue.  i lean toward and/both.

there's nothing that drives me up a wall more as the masses here continue to parrot "seth rich," so i'm going to say this for the last time as this http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/24/us/seth-rich-dnc-wikileaks-theories/  crap continues to hold validity for those that CANNOT see any other possibility.  same goes for alt that swallowed that shit hook, line & sinker.

i'm not posting it again so if you want to break away from linear thinking search the following:

his online obit...1 person signed it.

YT interview w/parents & bro who snickered thru the whole thing a la robbie parker w/disney pics covering the wall behind them.

in hi-skool he trained w/idf in izz ra hell.  no no no, couldn't be...he dresses in the ol' gorey!

findagrave.

grant money given for cctv in the whole area where he was supposedly shot & not 1 damn bit of footage from any. 

this was not a live Finicum assassination...more bullshit for fertile imaginations that are unable to conceive of another scenario/motive.

Assange is fkn dead, man.  The head was cut off wikileaks right around the time Pam brought him that sammich.  If you think "Assange" today looks like older verified photos of the real Assange, you need your eyes checked.  Wiki's top 4 were all silenced at once right when pedogate was starting to pick up a little steam.  Anything that comes out of there is going to be fluff.

The Uranium one deal would, in a rational world, lead directly to charity fraud in the Clinton Foundation. 

Charity fraud would lead to several countries taking turns to have standing in damages to the tune of a few billion buckaroos.

It'll get all hush shush in a hurry... Or else.

Well whaddya know, it's War-at-any-cost-anytime-all-the-time-for-whatever-reason-fuck-your-individual-freedoms, rep. Pete King...?

Isn't this the hyper-'patriotic' Fuck-wad who wanted Assange charged for treason, jailed, etc.?  I know he's one of them, that much.   He's as Fucking dirty-$bought & paid for as the rest of 'em.

Investigations, probes.?

Nothing short of

Arrest.

Indictments.

Enprisonment

Trial.

And,

Execution for Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against the American People will suffice.

You would think the Criminal Law Enforcement Agencies would want to get back to good standing with the American People. However, whatever trust, loyalty & respect the American People had for them has been squandered.

And, they only have themselves to blame for not arresting, indicting, enprisoning & Executing Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Hillary Clinton and others.

Fuck Them!

And, their

Tyrannical Lawlessness.

The Deep-State still believes they are in control.

They, and the crooked pedophiles, will try to keep the party going for as long as they can.

These people don't seem to realise that they are not in control; in fact they have never been in control.

Every person on this planet is a tool that is being used in this great war between good and evil.

We all must choose a side. There can be no fence-sitters.

Ok, back to the case at hand...  

If you're old enough, harken back to the days of Billy Jeff and a new scandal and 'House Committee investigation' nearly every week of his 8 years in office.

And what came of it all?

Wish in one hand & spit in the other perhaps...?

Did make careers and $fortunes though for the Rush Limbaugh brigades...

The few congressmen pushing for real investigation into the CF have to have some set of balls.  This has been slow rolled for years becasue the GOP swamp is at least in on the coverup due being compromised and no doubt more than a few have their hands in the CF cookie jar too.

Seriously? Powerful? I cannot remember anything EVER coming out of any of the so called investigations. 48 million on food stamps.There is your bread. Televised "hearings". There is your circus.

Both parties are  corrupt.  No matter which party majority is in Congress or which party's president is in office  it is the same.  Pay-to-Play for the enrichment of government reps and their corporate and private donors.  Under cover of war these people have rat lines that transact drugs, money, weaponry and more. They legislate nothing for 99% of American Citizens.

It is a sad state for the American people.

Great reason to start prosecuting a bunch of these criminals!

Let's start with the two worst, Bill and Hillary... and don't forget Chelsea. She has lived large on the Clinton Crime-Family Foundation funds.

Both parties as well as the judiciary....there is no United States of America left.  All that's left is Article V and dissoloution and prosecution in international criminal courts....oh wait, those are captured, too /rolleyes

Right now the U.S. got screwed over bigtime because now with the Russian sanctions on the Americans cannot send spent radioactive waste from their nuclear facilities to Russia.  Russia has different technology where a lot of their reactors can fuel themselves from radioactive waste unlike American reactors that are just storing it all out on the Nevada desert in drums on the surface.  The level of medical waste is piling up as well.  Maybe the American Plan is just to drop an A Bomb on all of it in Nevada to incinerate it or even let the North Koreans do it for them. The level of stupidity in American politics wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Great, another useless investigation.

Issue indictments and then I'll pay attention.
