"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).

Mueller

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;

and

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.

Out of every 100 Americans, how many know who Robert Mueller is?

Of them, how many know that he was made DFBI a week before 911?

Of them, how many care if he's up to his armpits in poop soup?

Finally, how many deep state workers does it take to remove a DFBI

David Corn of Mother Jones wrote an article dated October 31, 2016 titled “A Veteran Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump
Has the bureau investigated this material?”
In it he details his meeting with a “former Western intelligence officer” who is obviously Steele, quotes extensively from a document that is obviously the now thoroughly discredited, 12 million dollar, Clinton/DNC, fake, Russian propaganda-filled Trump Dossier (which Hillary claimed just days ago didn’t become public until Jan. 2017), and provides proof positive that Harry Reid was in contact with both Comey and top officials in the national security community in early August of 2016 discussing details of the dossier and demanding the F.B.I. begin an investigation of the Trump Campaign based on the information in the dossier. What is also clear from the article is that the ink on the dossier had barely dried and the Clinton minions were working it and when the F.B.I. saw the dossier in August of 2016, they launched their investigation of Manafort and Gates. This, of course, was giddily celebrated by the Clinton circle in 2016 as the much anticipated “October surprise” promised by Reid. In 2017, it is utterly damning.
Why is this important? Because Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy have both made clear they are looking for evidence that the F.B.I. and/or the DOJ used that discredited dossier as the basis for launching their investigations and if they did, those investigations are DOA. If you have to ask why, you’re an idiot.
Democrats better brace themselves for yet ANOTHER devastating letdown, once again at the hands of Hillary.

fishwharf's picture

To me the bigger Mueller scandal was his complicity in 9/11.  He was made FBI director on September 4, 2001 and was director for 12 years.  He had to know the real story behind 9/11, but did nothing.  If an idiot like me knows that building seven was a controlled demolition, and that controlled demolitions cannot be done on the fly, then as far as I'm concerned Robert Mueller is one of the conspirators.  Talk about the fox in charge of the hen house.  This shit is deep.

"This shit is deep," you say. Forget the turtles, it's shit all the way down.

We all know that. We all saw building 7 standing there at the background when the BBC reporter proclaimed it was destroyed on live TV. And then conveniently BBC lost the satellite link when they realized their mistake .  No, they dont think we are stupid--- they know we are powerless to do anything even when lied to in our face !

Trump would have been dead by now ... his hands are tied, we are talking all the most powerful fearful of losing the current economic system because it is a ponzi.

So he is a catalyst is all, said that before the election and think exactly the same now.

Every action taken to block him reveals who another one is, Mueller head of the FBI and Comey now gone are being exposed and a few billionaires also. Soros for sure ... etc. etc. Now Trump can't remove them ever but the system is inverting because so much of what is happening now is laughable that even moderates are wondering "what the fuck is happening".

So they start to look and realise ... Trump is red pilling so many it is amazing to watch ... even a moderate realises now the likes of Facebook and Twitter are not a service being provided to them it is a function of the state monitoring and controlling you.

Mwhahahaha ... I pulled all the social media shit for what it is ... its over the organ grinder needs to stop the monkey fucking left the room.

This is like waiting for a sealed 55 gallon barrel of popcorn cooking over the burner.  When it explodes, everybody will have popcorn to enjoy the show.  I can just see Hillary and Billy boy posing in orange tailor made Mao jumpsuits with accessories including metal bracelets attached to body belts via chains.

Why did Trump and Session select Rod Rosenstein as part of their administration?  It seems pretty clear that Rosenstein and Mueller are party to the Deep State that is intent on removing DJT. I give Sessions the month of November to prove he's worth keeping.  Trump can fire Jeff and appoint a Temp to clear the deck.

Maybe YOU are hoodwinked.

Maybe the 'deep state' is just pretending to be intent on removing DJT.

Just as they were 'intent' on electing Hillary.

The Still Report 6 min https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flYCR2k992k

Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on: Here Comes Antifa This Weekend, 1873 Synopsis: Yes, the Soviet Union may be dead and gone, but the Soviet philosophy is not - divide and conquer all those who refuse to submit to rule by only the law of the jungle – as opposed to the rule of law. One of the uber left’s newest initiatives to divide and conquer America has been the rise of Antifa.

We’re not quite sure why it hasn’t worked that well, but it’s got something to do with the inate wisdom of red-blooded Americans.

In any case, Antifa’s latest attempt will begin tomorrow, Saturday as they try to paint the Trump/Pence administration as an illegitimate regime in need of impeachment at the least, or some sort of violent ouster – preferably.

 

This weekend has been in the works since these documents were published on August 6 by Refuse Fascism. And by the way, I just can’t resist noting the outright irony of an openly fascist group trying to thinly disguise themselves by use of the age-old smoke and mirrors technique – that is trying to label your opponents with the very violent and illicit tactics that you, yourself, are using.

And that is exactly what the Clintons have done by trying to brand President Trump as a secret Russian colluder, when they, themselves have perpetrated an unbelievable collusion with the old Soviet active measures group, the size and scale of which are just starting to come to light. Their continued attempts to tie Trump to Russia are not working very well, but they have nothing else to throw up to try to slow the Trump Train which is continuing to plow through the swamp.

 

According to the laughable Antifa call to arms: “Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power…” Do not be alarmed.

The police are on our side – with the exception of those in Las Vegas who have been shut down by an FBI that appears to have been significantly co-opted into the enemy camp during the Obama years.

Antifa is Israel/Mossad. I've proven it.

Theres gonna be a massive false flag at this Antifa civil war thing, some people are going to die, probably black people, then they will put the blame on one of those "Alt-right" racist guys, then they will try and link all white people/ Trump voters to the racist "Alt-right" guy.

The racist "alt-right guys are also funded by Israel/Mossad.

Its pretty easy to see coming, they're already setting it up as we speak........

On point tonight. Richard Spencer and David Duke are actors to say the least. Richard Spencer at face value is a terrible public speaker. That alone should raise a brow to anyone with a pulse. Duke has a very interesting history and many people who were in the KKK at the time he was say he was a fed or some type of informant. Everyone in the circles around him was arrested and he got out scot free time and time again.

Spencer and the Rebel media crowd want the 'alt right' to be afraid of mooselimbs and sharia law while never questioning their loving support of Zionism and Israeli influence etc.
Duke makes everything about jew this or jew that but never broaches the real meat of the issue, AIPAC and other lobbyist groups, dual citizen politicians, supreme court members etc. A typical overblown scapegoat to keep the anti-semite oppressed peoples meme going a little longer. Meh. Works on millions of our fellow slavesheeple.

I forsee more cars running over antifa, shootings (real or staged) to further the agenda. How predictable

I prefer this correction ...

One of Soros left’s newest initiatives to divide and conquer America has been the rise of Antifa.

then it makes sense they get the money from somewhere I think Soros shelled out like $18B for that or something.

I have no idea whether the 'deep state' has set trap for antifa yet.  It could be tomorrow it could be a year from tomorrow.

The 'deep state' may not want to act until antifa destroys more public and private property and not only turns more Ameicans

against them but teases out more supporters (including FBI provocateurs).

 

The 'deep state' is so in control of events here and abroad, so secretive about their activities, and has the MSM dancing on

puppet strings, that it is a fools errand to try to guess when they are going to act.

Trump seems to be in on it.  But why is the dirt coming out on Hillary, and why are the MSM not properly prepared?  There is still silence, or a positive slant on reaction.  They don't have a quick spin on it, and I am not sure they understand what is happening.  Hollywood is taking some heat.

So who is in charge?

Banksters get my bet, but the guys and gals on the ground are being rotated.  

Note that the intelligence community and the MIC are happily under the radar.

Sessions would recuse himself from a ham sandwich.

And yet Mueller, himself, has not stepped forward with his own resignation.  Think on that.  Mueller so clearly has a duty to step aside but he chooses not to. 

What kind of man is he?  Is he an "honorable man"? How many more like him are in positions of power and authority?

if he doesn't resign, indict him for treason.

i take that back. indict him, anyway.

He is not an honorable man.  His record is one squashed investigation after another.  He is on the payroll and there is no way he will "do the right thing".

shadow54's picture

Look how this played out.

Sessions recused without telling Trump, and it is obvious the FBI had some old dirt on him and forced him to do it. It was passed to Rosenstein who lightning fast brought in former FBI Mueller as Special Counsel without informing the White House. Comey was aware this was going to happen, he said it was the outcome he wanted.

This was obviously done to set up a Sham RussiaGate investigation where they assault the Trump Team while hiding the real Russia corruption that they were all involved in and that ran thru the Podesta Group and Clinton Foundation and FBI.

Today the Sham Investigation continues with Mueller absolutely refusing to investigate the torrent of real Russian corruption evidence coming out, while conviently hiding from all questions about his conflict and need to resign.

The Sham Investigation now has an Obama Judge for the Manafort Trial and she already announced she wants a gag order on the trial so the public won't know what is going on.

Sessions needs to be replaced by Sheriff Joe Arpaio or Sheriff Joe can serve as "special" prosecutor. How special you ask? His first move should be to set up a tent city in the Arizona dessert for "protective confinement" and questioning of swamp creature suspects like Meuller, Clinton and Wasswerman including those known to be used fake birth certificates and/or SS#s to obtain positions in government. And, as usual, no "luxuries" like air conditioning or indoor toilets. To pay for their "protection" they will work during the day in the dessert sun cultivating cactus. And no "luxuries" like water! Air is good enough for the cactus and should be fine for the swamp creatures. Costs can be defrayed by selling internet pay for view to us deplorables of the dessert grand jury "proceedings".
