"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.

"why the Russian people are subjected to such economically disadvantaged conditions?"

Because the West, led by the American capitalists, embargoed them almost 100 years ago.

Any other stupid questions?

Honestly, I know you are posting this just for the rubles, and you probably don't believe anything you are actually saying. My advice is get a better job - "Russian Troll - 2016 - 2018" doesn't really advance your career Sergei.

wtf has that to do with this thread??

Two things----

Nothing real has actually happened: no .1%ers in handcuffs or perpwalks. 

The real shit is Jeff Epstein's pedo dirt on everyone. His little black book and vids on his Islsnd keeps the bankers, pols and media pinky sworn to each other in a  money/power satanic mutual death pledge.  Its the glue that holds it all together. Note the puzzling unlikely connection of this Uranium one deal to Haiti; land of innumerable anonymous orphans. When the pedophile dam breaks, you'll know it's on. Until then, this is only for show. Normal humans will forgive a lot, but they will not abide harming chlidren.

It was Reagan talking to Ollie North, "If the People ever

find out what we did here, we will hang from the highest

tree!" Ollie and John made sure Reagan got 'bleached'.

You'll remember he became suddenly dazed and forgetful?

That's the symptom of electroshock therapy after Deep

State tried to assassinate him with Hinkley, a CIA asset.

While Reagan was in hospital, they bleached his memory.

Remember!? After they he would say, 'Well, there you go

again ... uhhh ...' then he would lose his track of thought.

That's why Kushner fled to Tel Aviv and Trump is fleeing

to SE Asia. Fear. They don't want to wake up 'bleached'.

The Witness Protection Program is growing swiftly bigger.

You're way out on a limb here. Nobody is fleeing shit. Brain bleach a sitting president? Give me a fucking break. You're obviously not a trunk hugger. Good for you, I guess.

What is most pathetic about a piece of shit like Anteater is his throwing out lies that will ensnare the young and low information reader. For instance, quoting the Hillabitch's post-election scream "If the People everfind out what we did here, we will hang from the highest tree! and attribute it to Reagan.

sort of missing the mark here.

rosenstein is the one behind U1.  sessions wants to protect his buddies.  sessions recuses hisself.  mueller was brought in to protect rosenstein.  how's he doing?

Hopelessly compromised is a massive understatement.

 

Where is Rosenstein, he should be removing Meuller.

But of course Rosenstein Weinstein wont.

Having met in emergency session last weekend, Congress

tallied four prominent Constitutional lawyers in open session,

begging them to find some Constitutional workaround or a

loophole or a construct or an interpretation that might let

them fire Mueller before he blows up Trump's Deep State

that all the ZioWarPigs are feeding from. But they failed.

Now Kushner has bugged out to Tel Aviv to hide out, and

Trump has bugged out to SE Asia to hide out, poor Don Jr

must be in hiding in a closet in Mar-A-Lago, and they're all

waiting for the next grand jury arrest warrant to drop.

This is the part where Deep State always wins. If they

can't force Mueller out by casting aspersions about his

role (sic) as FBI director during Uranium One, which had

nothing to do with the FBI, then Deep State will pull the

greatest mass murder in US history. For G-d's sake,

avoid public places on 11/11 and 11/17 those are the

magic number Kabbalah days, like 9/11 and 3/11 before.

Then have a nice Thanksgiving and pray for Mueller.

If we do this right, Trump and Kushner will both flee

the country, and we'll have our country back again.

Do yourself a favour and listen to thisradio show on the assassination of JFK. It is Andy Gause's view that a coup d'etat was carried out in 1963 and that every single presidency since then has been controlled by the people behind the killing of JFK EXCEPT for Trump's presidency. You need to get behind Donald he is your last chance...

Wind forward to minute 20 and certain journal entry by rockefeller and a presentation and photo of eleven prominent men alongside their cheques in LBJ's study.....

OK, OK ! and after this intermezzo, let's come back to the real issue of Mueller's investigations: Trump's and his familie's financial links to the New York mafia and not least their financial links to Putin's Russia.

40MikeMike's picture

The real issue is Hillary and her viscious clumsy criminal greed.

 

She'll claw anyone in the eyes to get her money.

 

Hillary subverted and betrayed the American people to secure her bribes and cover her tracks on an illegal, hacked, server.

 

She has to go to prison.

 

Mueller was a stooge and a pasty and allowed Hillary to accept the bribes. Bill's $500K fee from the Russians was the cherry on top.

 

Liberals are liars and hypocrites and awful people .  They are evil and must be corrected...

The Russian money trail leads only to Clinton.

There is not one Russian building, hotel or golf course with Trump's name on it.  Not even a licensing deal. Why? Trump wasn't on the political radar before 2015 but he developed real estate around the world.

Hillary was prominent in politics for 30+ years and took tens of millions from Russia, barely hiding it.

Follow the money.

FoggyWorld's picture

If, and I don't believe there were, any Trump financial links to Russia, they would be about the very legal hotel business.  Not an issue at all.

Keep in mind that Hillary set that reset button that encouraged American businesses to  work in Russia.  And Obama felt the same way.

Only when they needed an "enemy" did Russia, Russia, Russia become their cry and people fell for it:  we shouldn't.

If Manafort is guilty of anything, it looks like tax evasion and that stuff gets prosecuted every day by run of the mill prosecutors.

Mueller: Chief Special Prosecutor for the NWO.

The highest-ranking goy jurist under control of the Supreme Commanding Authority (SPECTRE), Tel Aviv.

Heil, Israel!
Sieg Heil!

BigCumulusClouds's picture

Highest ranking?? How can you make such a conclusion? Israel was only created in 1948. Rome and London were much stronger powers long before the Rothchilds were given Palestine by the Brits.

Kina's picture

Meuller was always compromised.

And the terms given the SC by Rosenstein are rediculously broad, being basically a witch hunt into Trump's past, which tells me Rosenstein is a Deep State Obama plant.

Rosenstein and Meuller should not be within 100 miles of this.

The DOJ is thouroughly compromised and now has Zero credibility. 

The poor, non existent leadership of Sessions has destroyed what credibility the DOJ had left.

It is now obvious that the DOJ is just another arm of the corrupt Swamp.

an NDA is not binding if it conceals a criminal act.

can you imagine a murderer saying to witnesses "sign this"?

this witness is not taking the fifth - if the witness does not testify, the witness to a crime is obstructing the course of justice.

no NDA has a clause that says "this NDA absolves you of all guult in obstructing justice"

SummerSausage's picture

You're correct but you'd feel less confident if the leverage of the entire government and its bureaucracy vowed to destroy you.  

Look at what they're doing to Trump? How many people could put up with that day to day AND afford lawyers to defend against it?  

This informant had an attorney when he was threatened (not Toensing) who folded like a cheap suit and withdrew the lawsuits immediately.

Ted Stevens was railroaded by the government and his case later thrown out - all so Murkowsi could be a more reliable uniparty senator.

Governor Palin had to resign as governor to make enough money to pay for the frivolous lawsuits brought against her by the marxist left operatives. Her crime? She told the truth.

Scooter Libby was prosecuted and found guilty of making a mis-statement to investigators which had absolutely nothing to do with who outed Valerie Plame (she was outed by a democrat who went unpunished).

There are two sets of laws now.  One for the intolerant marxist elite and one for those they don't like.

Collusion, even if there was any found to be an issue in the Trump campaign, is NOT A CRIME! So what is Mueller investigating? If there is no crime, what is the point? This whole investigation is an attempt to obfuscate the real issue...Clinton graft and kickbacks. 

Expat's picture

Wow, I am shocked to discover that Democrats are as corrupt as Republicans!  Wow.  My world is shattered.

What is pathetic is how this is used to call for putting a stop to the investigations into the Russian involvement in the campaign and the apparent deep criminality of Manafort and Gates.  Those two scumbags are allegedly mobsters. 

Fry them all.  please. but stop playing these stupid fucking partisan games and pretending your guys are so perfect and wonderful.  Trump is a narcissistic asshole with either the best memory in the world ever or he forgets things (as per his testimony in several lawsuits).  Why not admit it and say that is what we need?

So Hillary is corrupt and venal.  Is this a surprise?  Does Hillary's corruption absolve the right?  Do Clinton's or Obama's speaking fees give absolution to neo-Nazi's and other racists fuckheads?  Does the incompetence of Jimmy Carter provide an excuse for the failures of the Trump administration?

You wanna know why Washington is so corrupt?  Because assholes on both sides of the aisle persist in either maintaining that their side is clean or that their incompetence and corruption is justified by the incompetence and corruption on the other side.

Bring on the nukes!

Minimizing the total marxist corruption of the democrat party which is shown daily to be rotten at every level by including the possibility that a republican is compromised.

Whereas Mueller lined his pockets with kickbacks from the Russians. The Clinton Foundation, and HRC to look the other way as well as assist in the secure delivery of the goods.

Whereas all parties involved knew with 100% certainty that the Yellow Cake's final destination was DRNK

Whereas Bob Mueller jacks off to pictures of Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Michele She-Male Oshitman , and Rachel Maddow.

Whereas Hillary Rotten-Cunt Clinton is a fat treacherous old dried up cunt who has lost all her power and is getting her ass bitch slapped by Donna Brazille ( Hillary ...you should have never treated Donna like a personal black slave ...she can beat your ass).

Whereas Hillary Rotten-Cunt Clinton douches with Roundup.

Jeff Sessions was a plant in the Trump organization from the very early beginnings. He was placed there by TPTB in the off chance Trump was elected in order to prevent DOJ / FBI from investigating the Obama Administrations, HRC , and the Clinton Foundations criminality.

Wake up and smell the coffee people.

There was NEVER EVER even the slightest doubt that Sessions wouldn't be AG. No other name was proposed ..no other options given.

Sessions has been a fixture in the US Senate connected by LMR400DB cable to all of the corrupt components operating at the highest level of government for the last 30 fucking years!!

He was the perfect choice for the deep state plant and since he is senile anyway it's the perfect place to house him until the storm passes.

The absolute 100% best way to keep something good or bad from happening is to put a fucking 100 year old senator in charge.

Remember how he pretty much flew through the Senate approval process??

Trump needs to fire his ass TODAY !!! And bring in Sheriff Joe or one of those Judicial Watch Lawyers or he is going to end up getting impeached by his own staff !!

If your reading this Donald ...take heed that fucking Jeff Sessions is a representative of the deep state. 100% for sure.
