Game on! DOJ releases Uranium One informant to spill beans on corrupt Clinton-Russia nexus

Published

on

Late Wednesday, the Department of Justice waived its enforcement of the non-disclosure agreement binding an FBI informant to withhold his first-hand account from Congress of the corruption surrounding President Barack Obama’s approval of the 2010 deal, which gave the Russian energy company Rosatom controlling interest in 20 percent of America’s uranium deposits.

At the time of the deal, Hillary R. Clinton was the secretary of state and her husband President William J. Clinton was meeting with Russians, including President Vladimir V. Putin and bankers and clients of the Russian bank Renaissance Capital–a speech and meeting for which he was paid $500,000.

“As of tonight, the Department of Justice has authorized the informant to disclose to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as one member of each of their staffs, any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation,” Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement.

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R.-Iowa), long considered the most aggressive protector of whistleblowers on Capitol Hill, has asserted that the Justice Department, as a part of the executive branch, has no right to bind individuals to keep information from Congress. This release by Justice allows the informant to testify before Grassley’s committee, as well as the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence without with either Congress or the Executive to cede constitutional turf or pride.

In an Oct. 17 article, The Hill reported that the FBI had an informant inside the machinations amongst Russian agents, Obama administration officials and the Clinton Foundation as the Uranium One deal progressed.

Former congressman Michael Rogers, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee at the time of the Uranium One deal told The Hill he was never notified by the Obama administration about the investigation into the deal–even as many lawmakers were raising concerns publicly about the transfer of the uranium to foreign control.

“Not providing information on a corruption scheme before the Russian uranium deal was approved by U.S. regulators and engage appropriate congressional committees has served to undermine U.S. national security interests by the very people charged with protecting them,” he said. “The Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise is breathtaking.”

Big League Politics reported Wednesday:

The Obama administration placed Aimen Nabi Mir, former two-time president of the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), into the top advisory position to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), a national security post at the Treasury Department.

Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During that time, Aimen Mir played a key role in the CFIUS panel’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. Mir also played a key role in the Treasury Department’s refusal to investigate the UAE’s Gulftainer 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Port Canaveral, a critical military infrastructure facility for U.S. naval and space operations. Both decisions severely damaged United States national security.

Rep. Ronald D. DeSantis (R.-Fla.), a member of the House Oversight Committee and the chairman of that committee’s National Security Subcommittee, Tweeted his approval of the DOJ action rautshortly after it was announced.

115 House Republicans Sign Onto Effort to Remove Neocon Liz Cheney as GOP Chair

Cheney’s unfit to lead.

Published

on

A majority of House Republicans have signed onto a letter expressing no confidence in GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, following the neoconservative Wyoming member of Congress’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

115 Republicans have signed onto a ‘no confidence’ letter, a strong majority of the House’s GOP caucus of 211. Ten Republicans moved to betray President Trump on the sham impeachment, which is only slated to proceed in the Senate now that Trump has left office. The Senate lacks the jurisdiction to convict a private citizen, although Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hopes to bar the 45th President from running for federal office again.

Cheney has since been officially censured by the Carbon County, Wyoming Republican Party, with the latter expressing their strong disapproval in Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, now lacks the support to act in a leading capacity of the Republican Caucus. She’s already attracted a primary challenger, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has declined to move against Cheney, opting to keep her in a position of leadership even after betraying the President and her party. Establishment neocons such as Cheney are hoping to move the Republican Party back to a globalist vision of ‘invade the world, invite the world,’ attempting to sweep President Donald Trump’s governing vision of “America First” under the rug.

Cheney Republicanism no longer represents a way forward in the Republican Party.
