Here’s What We Know About Uranium One, Hillary Clinton, and Russia

The Department of Justice has issued an 11-count indictment against the former co-president of a nuclear fuel transportation company in an alleged bribery scheme connected with Uranium One.  Of course, that’s just the latest development in the convoluted mess now known as the ‘Uranium One scandal’ which involves former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and Russia.

Catch me up

During the Obama administration, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) voted to appropriate the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s government-run nuclear company, Rosatom. As it happens, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on CFIUS at the time the committee unanimously voted to approve the Uranium One sale, a deal that would hand 20 percent of America’s uranium supply over to Russia. Uranium One investors donated $ millions to the Clinton Foundation over the same time-period.

Uranium One 101

Glenn launched a new, week-long chalkboard series today to take an in-depth look into the controversial Uranium One deal and it’s alleged connections with Hillary Clinton, Putin and Russia.

“A uranium pellet the size of a pencil eraser produces the same amount of energy as 149 gallons of oil, or 1780 pounds of coal … that’s pretty valuable stuff,” said Glenn. “It is huge business. In 2016, the US power companies … bought 51 million pounds … selling at a price of $42 per pound. Do the math … it’s $2.1 billion. So that sets the stage. Uranium: a vital national resource for both weapons and energy.”

Given the importance and value of uranium, a deal to sell the majority stake in Uranium One to Russia’s state-run energy agency, Rosatom, required US government approval. Here’s where CFIUS and Hillary Clinton got involved. But why was the Russian government, i.e. Vladimir Putin, so interested in acquiring all that uranium in the first place?

“They need it; those nuclear subs aren’t going to power themselves,” explained Glenn, adding, “Putin is ambitious and he’s no dummy. He sees the strategic advantage of controlling a big chunk of the world’s uranium supply chain. Plus, I think that Putin probably sees this as another way to mess with the US.”

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.

Lawyer: I’d vote NOT GUILTY for Derek Chauvin in George Floyd trial & here’s why

Former police officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his treatment of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca explains WHAT must be proven in order for those charges to stand. Did Chauvin act reasonably, in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's passing, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control? Branca also explains how the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it 'impossible' for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees...
