New information is emerging about a bribery scandal of the Uranium One deal of 2010, the Senate Judiciary is opening an investigation to find some answers.
Back in 2009, the Russians accepted a bribery in order Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy industry. Records form the Energy Department, FBI and the federal courts show evidence about corruption and infiltration of Russian bribery before the approval of the Uranium One deal in 2010.
Even though the substantial evidence, the Department of Justice investigated the problem for four years. The problem was that the American public and Congers didn’t know the truth about the bribery scheme.
Important witness testimonies were thrown out, and even Robert Mueller, then FBI Director, destroyed evidence.
A businessman who worked years undercover for the FBI was banned to testify about the details of the Russian involvement and influence over Hillary Clinton by Obama’s Justice Department
Toensing is a former chief counsel for the Senate Intelligence Committee and a former Reagan Justice Department official.
“All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said Tuesday.
With all this emerging the Senate Judiciary Committee is now starting an investigation to find out the truth about this scandal.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was questioned by Senator Chuck Grassley during an oversight hearing about the scheme that started in 2009.
“According to government documents and recent news reports, the Justice Department had an ongoing criminal investigation for bribery, extortion, money laundering, into officials for a Russian company making purchase of Uranium One,” Grassley said. “That purchase was approved during previous administration and resulted in Russians owning 20 percent of America’s uranium mining capacity.”
“What are you doing to find out how Russian takeover of American uranium was allowed to occur despite criminal conduct by a Russian company that the Obama administration approved to make the purchase?” he asked.
Sessions said, “I would offer that some people have gone to jail in that transaction already, but the article talks about other issues. Without confirming or denying existence of any particular investigation, I would say I hear your concerns and they will be reviewed.”
The committee has sent out requests for additional information to around of 10 separate agencies involved in the Uranium One deal. Also, testimonies from witnesses are expected and hopefully the FBI informant, who was blocked, will testify this time.
