Clintons Essentially Sold American Uranium to Russia, Iran

The Wall Street Journal editorial board sums up the latest on the Clinton Foundation: “The New York Times reported Thursday on the foreign cash that flowed into the Clinton Foundation between 2009 and 2013 as subsidiaries of the Russian state nuclear energy agency Rosatom acquired control of a Canada-based mining company called Uranium One. The story features the familiar Clinton touches: lucrative Kazakh mining concessions for the tycoon Frank Giustra, with Bill along as a character reference; a half-million-dollar-a-pop speech by the former President in Moscow for a Kremlin-linked bank; $2.35 million in secret donations from one family foundation to another. … All the while, Mrs. Clinton was serving in her capacity as Secretary of State on the U.S. Cabinet committee that screens foreign investment for national-security risks. The group approved the deal, despite critics who warned it would give the Russian government control over the world’s nuclear fuel — the same material Vladimir Putin is now selling to Iran. Oh, and don’t forget this was also amid the famous ‘reset’ of relations with Mr. Putin.”

Hot Air’s Allahpundit also explains, “Bill Clinton helped out Kazakhstan’s dictator with some propaganda at home 10 years ago in exchange for Clinton Foundation board member Frank Giustra being allowed to purchase uranium interests inside that country. Giustra’s company got rich and made a correspondingly rich donation to the Foundation. The company ended up merging with another company to form Uranium One, which began buying up uranium interests inside the U.S. Eventually the stakeholders in Uranium One wanted to make a bigger score by selling the company to — ta da — Russia, but they knew a deal like that would need to be approved by top officials of the federal government, including … the Secretary of State. So they dropped another pile of cash on the Clinton Foundation and the deal was approved. (See why Hillary might have been keen to have that private e-mail server of hers wiped?) And now a huge chunk of America’s uranium supply is controlled by Vladimir Putin, one of Iran’s chief nuclear suppliers. The uranium in your soil may eventually end up in an Iranian enrichment facility, thanks to a crook who’s running to be commander-in-chief of the U.S. military.”

The Clintons and their lackeys, which we have long dubbed the Clintonistas, will stonewall and obfuscate, only later to dismiss the story as “old news.” Unfortunately, since this isn’t an easily explained quid pro quo, many low-information voters will just check the box for the Democrat anyway.
