Uranium One has finally hit the national media stage. It is a scandal [sic] that could take down the Clintons once and for all.
Left-leaning The Hill is being credited with breaking the story, though it goes back to 2009. The media cannot stop talking about it, and the undercover FBI agent that has been gagged from talking to Congress about the details.
The Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions at the time, insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of the committee to oppose the Uranium One deal.
But FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.
AG Jeff Sessions has the power to release the informant from the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) but has refused to do so. Fox News reports:
“Witnesses who want to talk to Congress should not be gagged and threatened with prosecution for talking. If that has happened, senior DOJ leadership needs to fix it and release the witness from the gag order,” Grassley said in a statement.
In a letter sent Wednesday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Grassley said such an NDA would “appear to improperly prevent the individual from making critical, good faith disclosures to Congress of potential wrongdoing.”
He asked for a copy of the NDA by Nov. 1 and requested that, should one exist, “you release him from it and pledge not to engage in any form of retaliation against him for good faith communications with Congress.”
Though the Main Stream Media (MSM) are finally talking about it, what very few seem to remember is that the alternative media have been talking about this for years.
The central part of the Malheur Refuge Protest was the Hammond family, and their ranch outside of Burns, Oregon. Dwight and Steven Hammond were ordered to return to prison by the Federal government over a small range backfire. They had previously served out the sentence reluctantly imposed on them by Judge Hogan.
During the court preceding the Hammonds were forced to grant the BLM first right of refusal. If the Hammonds ever sold their ranch they would have to sell it to the BLM.
It was during this turbulent time that the political implications of Uranium One were shouted over the internet.
* From INTELLIHUB: Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore
…the Hammond’s ranch and other ranchlands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government but foreign entities as well.
Citing BLM documentation, they continue: Oregon Energy, L.L.C. (formally Uranium One) is interested in developing a 17-Claim parcel of land known as the Aurora Project through an open pit mining method. Besides the mine, there would be a mill for processing. The claim area occupies about 450 acres and is also referred to as the “New U” uranium claims.
* Newstarget also reports: EXCLUSIVE: Massive Cover-up – BLM leases Hammond ranch land to Russia through Clinton Foundation donors for uranium
Evidence has surfaced that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has been taking land with plans to lease it to Clinton Foundation donors.
Russia gradually gained control of Uranium One, a major mining company, in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State. Canadian records reveal that the company’s chairman used his own family foundation to make four donations to the Clinton Foundation during that time, resulting in a sum contribution of $2.35 million. Secretary Clinton approved the deal for Russia soon after her family’s slush fund received the donations. Now, Vladimir Putin controls 20 percent of all uranium production capacity in the U.S.
* Jon Rappoport reported: The Clintons: is the Oregon standoff really about uranium?
…there’s a case to be made that they, through Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation, facilitated the sale of Uranium One to Putin and the Russians. And if so, and if this area of Oregon is projected to be part of that uranium mining deal, then we are looking at a stunning “coincidence”: the US federal government is coming down hard on a group of protestors who are occupying, for their own reasons, a very valuable piece of territory that goes far beyond the issue of private cattle grazing on government land.
The constantly vilified Patriot movement have [sic] continuously shared this information with alternative media, as the MSM seemed too invested in protecting Hillary Clinton for her election bid. They waited patiently for the MSM and President Donald Trump to wake up and smell the coffee.
Accused of being anti-government, those in the movement will tell you they are PRO-Honest-Government, and that is all they have been asking for. Return to the founding ideals and allow transparency.
The next goal, beyond holding Hillary Clinton accountable for her actions, will be to gain justice for LaVoy Finicum, murdered on the side of a remote highway in rural Oregon.
Let’s begin that journey by freeing Dwight and Steven Hammond from prison.
