Uranium One Deal: ‘More Evidence That the Democrats Are Perfectly Willing to Work With the Russians’

On Thursday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Ben Shapiro filled viewers in on the latest details to emerge from the Uranium One deal involving Russians, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Democratic Party.

The latest

Today, NBC News is reporting that Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered investigators at the Justice Department to ask FBI agents to explain all of the evidence they found in the Uranium One investigation.

“At issue is a 2010 transaction in which the Obama Administration allowed the sale of U.S. uranium mining facilities to Russia’s state atomic energy company,” while Hillary was secretary of state NBC reported.

While there were no charges brought against Obama and Hillary’s camp despite allegations of corruption at the time of the sale, many Clinton Foundation donors happened to profit from the deal along with Bill and Hillary.

The evidence is staggering and the amount of details emerging can be overwhelming, but it’s something you need to know about.

Listen above to hear Ben delve into the tangled web of lies surrounding the mysterious deal.

BEN: Okay. So this is breaking news. Attorney General Jeff Sessions apparently has ordered investigators at the Justice Department to ask FBI agents to explain all the evidence they found in the Uranium One investigation. This is a report from Tom Winter, Pete Williams, and Ken Delanian at NBC News.

Apparently, the interviews with FBI agents are part of the Justice Department's effort to fulfill a promise to an assistant's attorney general made to Congress last month, to examine whether a special council was warranted to look into what has become known as the Uranium One deal.

You remember all the details surrounding Uranium One. That issue is a 2010 transaction, in which the Obama administration allowed the sale of a US uranium mining facility, to Russian state atomic energy company. Hillary was Secretary of State at the time. The State Department was one of the nine agencies that agreed to approve the deal.

Now, senior law enforcement official was briefed on the initial FBI investigation, told NBC News, there are allegations of corruption surrounding the process, under which the US government approved the sale.

No charges were filed. But as the New York Times reported in April 2015, some of the people associated with the deal contributed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

And Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars for one speech in Moscow by a Russian investment bank with links to the transaction. Hillary says she has nothing to do with it. Of course, that is somewhat doubtful. That is somewhat doubtful.

And there are a lot of people a few weeks back who were trying to undermine the suspicions about the Uranium One deal. And I did a bit of a summary over at my website, Daily Wire, talking about what exactly happened in the Uranium One story. So here is what was true about the Uranium One deal.

There's a guy named Frank JEW-STRA. Frank JEW-STRA was the original owner of Uranium One. And people said, okay. Well, he had invested it by the time of the sale of Uranium One and its assets to Rosatom, the Russian atomic energy agency. But here is what is true: JEW-STRA owned a company called Eurasia.

That was sold to Uranium One. JEW-STRA then said he divested his personal stake in the company, but his shareholders still own 60 percent of the company. And there's no way to confirm the truth of this claim.

In 2009 and 2010, Rosatom, which is Russia's atomic energy agency, was poised to buy a majority of the company. They were barred by law from supporting American Uranium abroad. So it wasn't that Russia was going to buy the uranium, send it back to Russia, and then use it to make bombs to murder Americans or something. That was not really the concern.

The real concern here was that Russia bought Uranium One because they actually didn't want the American assets. They bought Uranium One because Uranium One had assets in other countries that they could use to make news.

In 2013, Russia bought the rest of Uranium One with the approval of the committee on foreign investment in the United States, as well as the US nuclear regulatory commission in Utah agencies.

The CFIUS includes the State Department. Hillary Clinton said she had nothing to do with the green lighting.

So how much money actually flowed from Uranium One beneficiaries to the Clinton Foundation? Well, if you don't include JEW-STRA, about $4 million.

If you include JEW-STRA, it's 145 million. But this is all a little too simplistic.

So in 2015, here's what the New York Times reported. The Uranium One acquisition actually began in 2005, while JEW-STRA still owned the company.

Bill Clinton -- Bill Clinton flew with JEW-STRA to Kazakhstan, where the two of them dined with the authoritarian president, a guy named Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Clinton then handed the Kazakh president a propaganda -- this is the New York Times not me. When he expressed support from Mr. Nazarbayev's bid to head an international national elections monitoring group, undercutting American policy and criticism of Kazakhstan's poor human rights record, by among other people, over to Clinton. Within days of the visit, JEW-STRA's fledgling Eurasia signed a preliminary deal, giving it stakes in three uranium mines controlled by Kazakhaprom, which was the Kazakhstan official energy agency.

Eurasia then in 2007 merged with Uranium One, a South African company with assets in Africa and Australia in a $3.5 billion transaction. The new company kept the Uranium One name. It was controlled by Eurasia investors, including Ian Telfer, who is a Canadian who became chairman. JEW-STRA says at that point he sold his stake.

Soon Uranium One began to snap up companies with assets in the United States.

In April 2007, it announced that it was going to purchase the uranium mill in Utah. The questions about Rosatom's control of Uranium isn't really about the Russians crafting nukes, as I say. It's about shortages of uranium in the United States and us being dependent on foreign sources for that material. And, again, about Rosatom purchasing nuclear material in Kazakhstan. And the Clintons were still involved at this time. They were involved past the sale.

This is the point. It didn't end with JEW-STRA selling Rosatom. I mean, selling Uranium One.

The new head, Ian Telfer, he gave between 1.3 million and 5.6 million in contributions to the Clinton foundation.

From a constellation of people with ties to Uranium One or Eurasia. Without the assets, the Kazakh mines, the Russians would have had no interest in the deal. Amid the influx of Uranium One-connected money, Clinton was invited to speak in Moscow in June 2010. The same month Rosatom struck its deal for a majority stake in Uranium One. So the same month that Rosatom decided to buy Uranium One,

Clinton spent time in Moscow and got 500 grand for it. It's not at all unclear that the Clintons were unrelated to Uranium One. So, again, just more evidence that Democrats are perfectly willing to work with the Russians when they saw a way to benefit from it.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
