Russia has one of the world’s largest stockpiles of bomb-grade Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU). What’s worse is that they have problems keeping track of that material. The map below indicates HEU seizures as reported by the IAEA between 1994-2014. [1]

One of these seizures occurred in 2006 in Georgia when Robert Mueller was Director of the FBI.

Nuclear forensics conducted by the United States indicated that it came from the Russian HEU cache marked in red on the map. [2]

This should have been considered a serious risk when CFIUS reviewed the sale of UraniumOne to Rosatom. In 2010 before the sale completed, Senator John Barrasso wrote a letter to President Barack Obama to notify him of these risks. [3]

February 2002 – During a raid against international drug trafficking, law enforcement officials in Southern Kazakhstan seized 1.5 kg of uranium oxide powder smuggled from Tajikistan via Uzbekistan, together with a large cache of heroin.

As revealed in my recent research, the Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah was involved in smuggling drugs and uranium. [4], [5]

The porous and largely uncontrolled border with Kazakhstan (Where Uranium One also operates) is a prime area for smuggling drugs and uranium. CFIUS should never have approved this transaction due to significant national security risks.

Now how did North Korea go from having enough bomb-grade nuclear material to make 6 bombs to 60 bombs in less than 6 months? Any guesses?

Did North Korea fool the experts, IAEA and the CIA? I don’t think so. I think they were sold nuclear material from Russia, Pakistan and/or Iran. Thread on NoKo’s enrichment capabilities. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) 2nd International Symposium on HEU Minimization 23-25 January 2012 HEU management in East Asia Highlights on estimates and findings for North Korea. [6]

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (NK) – 2012 HEU estimate: 42kg – Was known to have built an advanced Gas Centrifuge plant 2010 according to Dr. Siegfried Hecker of Stanford University.

Two independent reports from 2010 reported upwards of 2000 centrifuges. [7]

Earlier North Korea facilities could only produce small quantities of HEU. – Pilot fuel fabrication facilities produce the fuel elements required for a research reactor. Satellite images of pilot building on 8/10/2009 Renovations on 2/24/2010 and 6/24/2010.

To make matters worse, Rosatom’s subsidiary and sole uranium transport logistics company TENEX was involved in criminal activity within the United States prior to the CFIUS review. [8]

Given the above information, how could CFIUS possibly state that there were no unresolved national security risks? Care to explain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? [9]

Because to me, it looks like you ignored serious and obvious national security risks when approving this transaction while millions of dollars were being funneled to the Clinton Foundation. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. [10]

18 U.S. Code § 201 – Bribery of public officials and witnesses [11]

Remember Obama’s disgraced Iran deal? Iran had to ship 25,000 lbs of HEU out of the country… to Russia… And it was transported by TENEX. [12]

Quick Recap:

– Tenex was owned by Rosatom who purchased U1

– HEU was smuggled out of Russia

– Tenex officials involved in criminal activity

– Hezbollah smuggling uranium

– Iran exported 25k lbs of HEU to Russia via Tenex

– Uranium One transaction approved ignoring serious risks

– And somehow NoKo got a hold of a large amount of HEU during this time

Very suspicious.

Is this the reason for the Trump Russia Hoax?

Oh look, North Korea was running a nuclear smuggling network. What a coincidence.

North Korea ‘runs international nuclear smuggling network’ [13]

North Korea has operated a widespread overseas smuggling network to supply banned nuclear and ballistic missile components to Burma, Syria and Iran, according to a United Nations report that recommends tightening inspections of its foreign activities. The report provides key backing for Western intelligence reports that North Korea has supplied weapons material for countries hostile to American foreign policy.Experts responsible for the 75-page report found that North Korea provided the expertise for construction of nuclear faility in Syria that Israel bombed in 2007. It also found that a sanctioned North Korean firm had engaged in “suspicious activity” in Burma and supplied a dual use magnet through a trading firm in Tokyo.The finding that North Korea is involved with “the surreptitious transfer of nuclear-related and ballistic missile-related equipment, know-how and technology” to countries including Iran, Syria and Burma, by the experts from UN Security Council sanctions committee will enhance efforts to intercept and disrupt North Korea overseas.

The border between Russia and North Korea, according to the official Russian definition, consists of 17 kilometres (11 mi) of “terrestrial border” and 22.1 km (12 nautical miles) of “maritime border”. The two countries are separated by a river.

Russia has been known to fight wars via proxy and thus retain plausible deniability. North Korea had help and it is not far-fetched to surmise that Russia is using them to threaten the United States by proxy. [14]

If that is the case — and I believe it is — then the outgoing Obama administration would have known all about it from intelligence briefings. That throws a big ugly wrench into the wheels of whole “Trump-Russia collusion” allegation.
