Bill and Hillary Clinton have somehow managed to evade prosecution for decades despite committing numerous crimes against the U.S. Now that President Donald Trump is in office, however, their days of getting away with their crimes appear to finally be over.
Breitbart reported that an 11-page indictment was just handed down by a grand jury investigating possible Russian bribery involving Hillary’s Uranium One deal that was negotiated during her time as Secretary of State in Barack Obama’s administration. The indictment was handed down against Maryland resident Mark Lambert, the former co-president of a nuclear transportation company involved in Hillary’s deal to sell U.S. uranium interests to a Russian company.
The Department of Justice released a statement saying that Lambert, 54, was charged with “one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.”
“The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX,” the statement continued.
The Uranium One scandal revolves around the partial sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One to Russia’s atomic energy giant Rosatom. The Obama administration had to approve the sale because it transferred 20 percent of U.S. uranium stocks to Russia, and at the time, Hillary was on the federal board that approved the deal in 2010.
In his bestselling book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, Peter Schweizer wrote that nine foreign investors in the deal gave $145 million to Hillary and Bill Clinton’s personal charity, the Clinton Foundation. At this same time, Bill was paid $500,000 for a speech in Moscow, raising serious questions about backdoor “pay-to-play” payoffs.
Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered the DOJ to re-examine the evidence in the Uranium One investigation, fulfilling a promise one of his subordinates made to Congress to take another look at the case.
