"Hopelessly Compromised": Judiciary Member Calls For Mueller's Resignation Over Uranium One Scandal

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier this morning House Judiciary Committee representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) submitted a resolution calling for Robert Mueller to resign as special counsel overseeing the FBI investigation of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government saying, among other things, that the former FBI director is "hopelessly compromised" as a result of his failed oversight of the controversial Uranium One transaction.  Here is an excerpt from a press release posted to Gaetz's website earlier today:

“Evidence has emerged that the FBI withheld information from Congress and from the American people about Russian corruption of American uranium companies. A confidential U.S. witness, working in the Russian nuclear industry, revealed that Russia had deeply compromised an American uranium trucking firm through bribery and financial kickbacks.


Although federal agents possessed this information in 2010, the Department of Justice continued investigating this “matter” for over four years. The FBI, led at the time by Robert Mueller, required the confidential witness to sign a non-disclosure agreement. When the witness attempted to contact Congress and federal courts about the bribery and corruption he saw, he was threatened with legal action. By silencing him, Obama’s Justice Department and Mueller’s FBI knowingly kept Congress in the dark about Russia’s significant and illegal involvement with American uranium companies.


These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised. He must step down immediately,” Rep. Gaetz said in a statement.

Gaetz’s resolution currently has two cosponsors, both of whom are members of the House Freedom Caucus: Representatives Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX).


Of course, pressure has been growing on Mueller for the past couple of weeks and reached a fevered pitch when the The Hill recently reported the sordid tale of "Confidential Source 1," a man that the FBI used as an informant back in 2009 and who says he was silenced by the FBI and Obama administration when he attempted to come forward with information that linked the Clinton Foundation directly to the Uranium One scandal.

Toensing added her client has had contact from multiple congressional committees seeking information about what he witnessed inside the Russian nuclear industry and has been unable to
provide that information because of the NDA.


“He can’t disclose anything that he came upon in the course of his work,” she said.


The information the client possesses includes specific allegations that Russian executives made to him about how they facilitated the Obama administration's 2010 approval of the Uranium One deal and sent millions of dollars in Russian nuclear funds to the U.S. to an entity assisting Bill Clinton's foundation. At the time, Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of State on the government panel that approved the deal, the lawyer said.


It has been previously reported that Bill Clinton accepted $500,000 in Russian speaking fees in 2010 and collected millions more in donations for his foundation from parties with a stake in the Uranium One deal,
transactions that both the Clintons and the Obama administration denied had any influence on the approval.


“All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said in an interview Tuesday. “And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, 'This is wrong. What should I do about it?'”


When he tried to bring some of the allegations to light in the lawsuit last year, “the Obama Justice Department threatened him with loss of freedom. They said they would bring a criminal case against him for violating an NDA,” she added.


“The government was taking a very harsh position that threatened both your reputation and liberty,” the civil lawyer wrote in one email. In another, she added, “As you will recall the gov’t made serious threats sufficient to cause you to withdraw your civil complaint."

As we pointed out last week, "Confidential Source 1" has since been cleared by the DOJ to meet with Congress to tell his tale.

Meanwhile, the scandal took another turn for the worse earlier this week when, despite numerous assurances to the contrary from the Obama administration, new memos obtained by The Hill confirmed that, in fact, Uranium One yellowcake was exported from U.S. shores repeatedly between 2012 - 2014.

Yet NRC memos reviewed by The Hill shows that it did approve the shipment of yellowcake uranium — the raw material used to make nuclear fuel and weapons — from the Russian-owned mines in the United States to Canada in 2012 through a third party. Later, the Obama administration approved some of that uranium going all the way to Europe, government documents show.


NRC officials said they could not disclose the total amount of uranium that Uranium One exported because the information is proprietary. They did, however, say that the shipments only lasted from 2012 to 2014 and that they are unaware of any exports since then.


NRC officials told The Hill that Uranium One exports flowed from Wyoming to Canada and on to Europe between 2012 through 2014, and the approval involved a process with multiple agencies.

Of course, we're certain that Mueller will promptly admit his conflicts and do the right thing...right?

* * *

Below is the full text of the Gaetz' resolution:

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Robert Mueller should resign from his special counsel position.

Whereas from 2001–2013, Robert Mueller served as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation;

Whereas as early as 2009, the FBI discovered that Russian officials were engaging in bribery and extortion, tainting the American uranium industry in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to strengthen their own nuclear program;

Whereas investigations into Russia’s corruption of American uranium-related businesses were supervised by then-United States Attorney Rod Rosenstein, currently serving as Deputy Attorney General, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, currently serving as Deputy Director of the FBI;

Whereas despite knowledge of this corruption, backed by documents and an eyewitness account, neither the Department of Justice nor the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the leadership of Mr. Mueller brought charges;

Whereas the Department of Justice actively threatened the liberty of a confidential informant embedded within Russia’s nuclear program who wished to inform Congress about Russian corruption of American uranium-related companies, and the FBI required this informant to sign a non-disclosure agreement, intentionally depriving Congress of information vital to national security and Congressional oversight authority;

Whereas Members of Congress have raised objections to, and concerns with, the sale of American uranium assets to Russian companies, and raised these concerns in official correspondence to then-President Obama as early as 2010;

Whereas in 2010, when the Russian Federation needed American approval of uranium sales, former President William Jefferson Clinton received hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from Kremlin-linked institutions, and requested approval from the State Department to meet with central figures in Russia’s nuclear industry, and eventually met with Russian leader Vladimir V. Putin at Mr. Putin’s private residence;

Whereas the Clinton Foundation has either directly or indirectly received undisclosed donations totaling millions of dollars from Russian-linked sources, including from officials in Russia’s nuclear program;

Whereas in 2010, Hillary Clinton, founder of the Clinton Foundation, wife of former President Clinton, and then Secretary of State, approved the sale of Uranium One to a Russian state-owned nuclear technology corporation;

Whereas any thorough and honest investigation into the corruption of American-uranium related business must include investigating the willful blindness of the FBI and its leaders;

Whereas under 28 CFR 45.2, no individual can participate in a criminal investigation if he has a personal or political relationship with any organization substantially involved in the conduct that is subject of the investigation;

Whereas under 28 CFR 45.2, no individual may participate in a criminal investigation if the individual’s participation would create an appearance of conflict of interest likely to affect public perception of the integrity of the investigation;

Whereas the Code of Federal Regulations, applied to Mr. Mueller, demonstrates that he cannot be allowed to investigate his former colleagues, supervisors, and subordinates;


Whereas these obvious conflicts of interest are unacceptable to the United States justice system and the American people:

Now, therefore, be it Resolved,

That House of Representatives expresses its sense that Robert Mueller is compromised and should resign from his special counsel position immediately.

The biggest scandal going right now, is that Mueller was installed as special prosecutor to rain hell on the Trump Administration.  Essentially a silent coup by the establishment.   Trump needs to find the most rabid pitbull he can, and fire Sessions , install him. then get him to install about five special prosecutors for various scandals.  one each for  obama, hillary, the fbi generally, holder, and lynch.   Then get the DOJ working on Bob Creamer,  DWS and all the congress people involved with the Imran spy ring,  DWS and Hillar collusion to subvert the will of the people, etc.... the list is long.

I would accept paying taxes for that. Afghanistan and foreign aid, no.

BigDawgz's picture

While I agree with the general sentiment of your post, I believe there's one huge stumbling block to it.  If Trump fires Sessions, isn't his next choice going to have to be approved by Congress? There'sn no way thee Dems are going to approve someone that's likely to be on Trump's side in this.  In the end, he could end up with someone even MORE adversarial to his cause than what he's got currently. I don'tt think the Dems have or will find anything particularly damning on Trump that he can be impeached for but I am afraid they've stacked the deck just right that Trump won't have any moves that will allow him to get the right people in place to go after the Dems.  If he can, it'll strictly be low-level 'expendables' and not any of the big fish we're all dreaming will buy an 8x8 & a cot in a Federal pokey.

    Maybe, but trust me. Bill and Hillary have not traversed thier path in power without making some enemies, he could find a stealth democrat that has a hard on for the clintons, and if the same person is a moderate Dem, jfk style, he might have a hardon  for all the obama crypto commies as well.    Diversity is our strenght after all...

Stated earlier ... you employ a hard number 2 and suspend sessions while you decide what to do.

He could be suspended for years, happens all the time in the UK.

Do you have somebody who could be number 2?

Mueller will never resign.  He knows his only chance to escape jail is to get Trump impeached, which he will do his best to accomplish by hook or by crook.  McCabe is another crook who was bought off by a $700,000 "campaign contribution" to his wife which was actually a bribe, since in Virginia candidates are allowed to personally keep contributions they don't spend.  I still don't know how Mueller was paid off, but I think it's certain that he was.  Disgusting!

Hitlery used the same logic and tried to spend her way into the US presidency. Massive fail. Americans are sick of political corruption. Pretty soon they will use the words "pedophile" and "progressive politician" interchangeably. The ones they can't jail will be voted out of office. It is really that simple. Just keep beating the drum. The rats are running as fast as they can. But there are traps and hungry felines everywhere.

Toensing is one brilliant attorney. Her client, the fbi informant who was silenced by, well, the fbi is going to blow wide open the biggest scandal in American history that will be mind blowing.

That said, Mueller will have all the time in the world to go to a dentist, find a sponsor at AA, and start a yoga practice.

As I stated earlier, Ms Toensing is the wife of Joseph deGenova, who is another top flight attorney and former DOJ. The informant has lawyered up, alright. Mueller needs to pound sand.

We need Trey Goudy. I don't understand why he isn't asked to be AG, special prosecuter, anything. He's a pit bull and tells it like it is.

Firestorme's picture

I love the way that Trey respects the blind lady of Justice and goes about humbly getting to the truth - I think he would be much better and more effective at getting to the truth. It would also free him from any influence or perception of influence that his donors might bring to bear while sitting in Congress.

FoggyWorld's picture

Except last week when all of this was flaring up, Gowdy went out of his way during several tv appearances to say how very much he respects Robert Mueller.

To me, that disqualifies Gowdy who isn't seeing clearly.

11b40's picture

First, you don't even know pow to spell Gowdy's name.

Second, did you know that Gowdy was a Federal Prosecutor for 6 years before becoming SC State District Attorney.  Don't think for a minute he is not a part of the game.

Third, he wasted over a year and $15 million taxpayer bucks putting on a Congressional comedy show, somehow never even asking the key questions, or bringing in the right witnesses.  I watched agood bit of the proceedings, and do not recall ever hearing the word Syria, and certainly not about what we were doing in Benghzi. No mention of consolidating the weapons we had sent to Libya....so we could send them to Syria in support of "McCains" good Muslim practioners of radical Islam.

Gowdy is is a loud mouthed bully.  He is a pit bull only if you are weak and he can take advantage.

There is something very wrong with that Sessions guy. They must have goods on him. 

Trump is pathetic, he just complained how frustrated he is with the Departmet of Justice. Does he think anything will get done if Session is dragged relcutantly out of his hiding place ?

Take action, moron. Replace Sessions with a pitbull attorney to go after the crooks. 

FreedomWriter's picture

Relax, something tells me the Donald has just moved another rook on the 3D chessboard.

When Mueller is forced to either:

a) Step down (recuse himself) before investigating Uranium One


b) refuse to open a special investigation into Uranium One

He will immediately become dog meat.

Either in public court or the court of public opinion.

US citizens can only handle so many outright cover-ups. We are way past our quota. Even CNN is having trouble keeping a straight face.

Pedophilia, CF pay-for-play, Poedesta collusions, DNC corruptions, Iwan espionaging, gagging of FBI informants, Arkanicides, Wiener sexting, Hollywood Mogul rapists, Islamist terrorism, US false flags, Seth Rich, etc.... sorry my fingers are getting so tired..... Killary's hitmen had to take a breather, there are too many witnesses to rub out. The dam is bursting.

Frightened dem cronies will soon be begging for immunity.

If Antifa and its handlers do something really stupid this weekend, one tweet from the Don should be all it takes to burst the dam completely and turn the tide. I don't think the elites realize how close we are to the edge.

Unlike Manafort who refused to bear false witness, the DOJ will need to build a special wing to accomodate the loyal progessive leftists who are dying to turn state's evidence.

As Mueller knows, Federal indictments can be a very powerful weapon. Combined with truthful testimony from credible witnesses, they become formidable.

If Mueller is lucky, he will be offered a deal and told to shut up or even get on board.

If not, he will go into the pot with the rest of the turd burglars.

I suspect we will soon see many more DNC whistle-blowers coming out. Numbers on a par with Weinstein's rape victims. All it takes is one or two good smoking guns to bring the whole rotting edifice down. Jeff should then wake up, take down some notes and get the boys and girls on it.

2018 is ours bitchez!

And yes Donald, the winning is beginning to hurt.

Please don't stop now.

The use of an NDA to silence an informant was a very innovative way to keep the confidential informant to ever become a witness and talk, thus guaranteeing that the informant would never put Mueller, Obama and the Clintons at risk. Unfotunately, they forgot that if Congress found out they could nullify the NDA.

Who in the DOJ was responsible for creating the NDA and forcing the witness to sign it? Who in DOJ held the NDA? Who signed the NDA on behalf of DOJ?

How many other NDAs does the DOJ have in force against Confidential Informants?

Boxed Merlot's picture

...use of an NDA to silence an informant...

Yep, pretty innovative, kinda goes along with the spousal ability to refuse to testify against the other spouse without recrimination and/or incrimination. It throws additional light on the reason the state has been so actively pursuing the "marriage" statutes for persons taking up with another person of the same God given gender / sex.

Now if only that pesky social discrimination against persons married to multiple spouses simultaneously as well as the wildly discriminating legal issues prohibiting persons from entering "adult" behaviour / relationships with one who has circled the sun far many more times, (through no fault of their own, i.e. the "elder"'s bad luck), can be set aside, wouldn't it be nice?

There would never again be charges of "unethical", "immoral" or even "illegal" conduct that could be "admissible" in a court of law as long as the aggrieved remains a person without "standing".

That's certainly the direction the US has been heading towards for quite some time.

just thinkin out loud.
