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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
