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.”

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.
