Pay close attention to Uranium One. This is a tale of greed, corruption and bribery.

(And Market Manipulation?)

Headlining Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the Russian Uranium industry and with special guest Billionaire Investor George Soros.

As you may or may not know, George Soros is an expert on market bubbles. Such an expert in fact, that in June of 2008 he was asked to speak before a US Senate hearing on energy market manipulation. We’re honored to have you with us, Mr. Soros.

Uranium is an energy commodity, and similar to other commodities, it is subject to these price bubbles.

Soros, a guest of honor at the Senate hearing, made his billions through market speculation and “predicting” the rise and fall of bubbles.

One of these energy commodity bubbles occurred with the price of Uranium in 2007 when it’s price grew exponentially to hit $300/kg. Another smaller bubble occurred in 2011 while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. At its peak, it reached $72.63/kg.

From a provider perspective, Rosatom for example, a price bubble is prime time to have uranium to sell as quickly as possible before the bubble “bursts”. It would lead to billions of $ in profits. That’s where the Uranium One sale and subsequent events become suspicious.

Then we have Frank Guistra. A mining financier with interests in the uranium market and Uranium One. And on the Board of Directors at the Clinton Foundation.

It is evident that Hillary Clinton while serving at the Department of State, under Barack Obama, would have known both about the Uranium One sale as well as the price bubble occurring for one of the most important US energy commodities during that time.

In June of 2010 before the sudden rise in uranium prices, Rosatom began acquiring Uranium One. For all involved, getting the transaction completed and uranium out of the ground and ready for sale in time for the temporary price spike would have been top priority.

As was originally reported by the New York times and has since been confirmed, millions of dollars from Frank Guistra, Ian Telfer, and other financiers with interest in Uranium One flowed to the Clinton Foundation.

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one. NYTimes

A picture begins to emerge: Clinton mega-donor George Soros would have predicted the uranium price bubble. Rosatom and friends of Hillary Clinton like Guistra would benefit from the transaction and subsequent price increase… As long as the transaction closed quickly.

In order for the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom to occur, it needed approval by CFIUS to determine if it was a national security threat. At the time, the voting board of CFIUS was comprised of nine Obama cabinet members, most notably Hillary Clinton.

A major hurdle to CFIUS approval was that the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in Bribery, Kickbacks, Extortion and Money Laundering.

FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

Despite the FBI’s evidence and later criminal convictions, CFIUS still approved the transactions. It is perfectly reasonable to assume that if Russian nuclear officials were committing Bribery already, they would continue to do it in order to make Billions of Dollars.

We now have Motive, Means, and Opportunity for a crime to occur. Immediately after the majority acquisition by Rosatom and prior to the sudden price spike, Uranium One drastically increased production at their Willow Creek, WY mine.

During the Senate hearing on Energy Market Price Manipulation which Mr. Soros attended, Maria Cantwell stated that energy commodities have been manipulated to cause spikes in price. A memorable example is Enron. This activity is known as Securities Fraud.

Enron artificially inflated energy prices in an elaborate pump and dump scheme involving shell companies.

This scandal has a myriad web of criminal conspirators. According to court documents, a Russian Nuclear Official named Merkerin’s duties included negotiating interstate and foreign commerce. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit money laundering. Using shell companies.

Shell companies are used in securities Fraud to conceal financial transactions. One way to cause an artificial price bubble is to make it appear that demand increased by mass purchasing futures contracts for the target commodity. A commodity like uranium.

A fraud scheme involving uranium was already occurring when Rosatom moved to acquire Uranium One. The FBI investigation meant that the scheme could not continue unabated and the artificial bubble that was created by purchasing futures would quickly expire. And it did.

Rosatom had to get the transaction approved by CFIUS and get the uranium sold as quickly as possible. Remember how the media was lying to us for a year or more, claiming that Uranium One was unable to export? Until I uncovered it?

The ability to export was essential to selling the uranium at the artificially inflated price produced by their fraud scheme before the bubble burst. Hidden in a deceitful pile of NRC paperwork, I found a license for RSB Logistic that was amended to allow U1 to export.

At this point it should be obvious why the testimony of the informant cooperating with the FBI during the Russian Nuclear bribery scheme is so important.

After the Uranium One acquisition and once again BEFORE the sudden artificial price increase, miners at the Willow Creek, WY mine rushed to remove the product from the ground as quickly as possible. And as the saying goes, haste makes waste.

Under oversight from the Obama administration, Uranium One mined the uranium from the ground in a haste causing contamination of local water supplies with uranium radionuclides. They made a mess, and US officials continued to looked the other way.

Conclusion: As I stated previously, the Uranium One deal entails a myriad web of co-conspirators. This is only part of the story. There is compelling evidence to suggest that Bribery, Money Laundering AND Securities Fraud occurred with help from Obama and Hillary Clinton.
