MUHAMMAD STRIKES THE UNITED STATES – At least 8 dead after suspect crashes truck in NYC; killer apparently caught on video

UPDATE:  Police confirmed to Fox News that Saipov is not a U.S. citizen and is originally from Uzbekistan, a former Soviet republic east of the Caspian Sea in Central Asia.

Saipov entered the United States on Obama’s watch. He is among many sleeper cells spread throughout our country.  Sanctuary cities are vulnerable to those who aspire to murder the innocent in the name of allah.

Pledged allegiance to ISIS. 

The driver who plowed into a group of people on Tuesday, killing 8, left behind handwritten notes pledging loyalty to ISIS along with an image of an ISIS flag inside his vehicle.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, had the notes written in Arabic inside his Home Depot rental truck along with a picture of the ISIS flag, according to law enforcement sources.

 

The handwritten notes indicated that he had pledged allegiance to the terror group, the sources said.

The New York Times reported Tuesday night that Saipov had previously been on the radar of law enforcement as a result of an unrelated investigation.

It wasn’t clear if Saipov was the main target of that probe or just an associate of another figure being investigated, according to the report, which cited unnamed sources.

 

The New Jersey mosque that New York City terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov reportedly attended has been under surveillance by the New York Police Department since 2005, according to a published report.

The Omar Mosque in Paterson, N.J., located near Saipov’s home, is among multiple Muslim houses of worship in the New York metro area being studied by the NYPD as possible locations for “budding terrorist conspiracies,” NorthJersey.com reported.

An NYPD report from 2006 doesn’t link any criminal activity to the mosque, but says it “is believed to have been the subject of federal investigations.”

In the wake of Tuesday’s deadly truck attack in Lower Manhattan, police and the FBI swarmed areas in New Jersey to which Saipov was believed to have ties. They included the mosque, an apartment building, and other residences and storefronts.

Police confirmed to Fox News that Saipov is not a U.S. citizen and is originally from Uzbekistan, a former Soviet republic east of the Caspian Sea in Central Asia.

A suspect identified as 29-year-old Sayullo Saipov barreled into a bike path and crashed a truck into a crowd, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ law enforcement sources have revealed.

President Trump reacted to the terror attack in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday by saying it was done by a “sick and deranged person.”

“In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person,” the president tweeted. “Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!”

Authorities said at least eight people died and nine were injured after a driver plowed into a bike path in New York on Tuesday afternoon. Police said they have taken a person, who was shot twice, into custody.

“My thoughts, condolences and prayers to the victims and families of the New York City terrorist attack,” Trump said. “God and your country are with you!”

Meanwhile, the president vowed to stop the Islamic State from executing terror attacks in the United States.

“We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere,” Trump said. “Enough!”

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the president has been briefed on the attack by chief of staff John Kelly and will be updated as “more details are known.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected,” Sanders said.

First lady Melania Trump also tweeted that her “heart breaks” for her hometown.

“My heart breaks for #NYC today,” she tweeted. “Thoughts & prayers as we monitor the situation.”

The FBI is investigating the incident as terrorism, Fox News has learned. It is being jointly investigated by both the New York Police Department and the FBI.

The Department of Homeland Security said its acting secretary, Elaine Duke, has also been briefed on “the apparent act of terrorism” and is “closely monitoring the situation and working with our federal, state and local partners in responding to and investigating this tragedy.”

“We have recently seen attacks like this one throughout the world,” the department said in a news release. “DHS and its law enforcement partners remain vigilant and committed to safeguarding the American people.”

FIRE MUELLER NOW

Time for Trump to bring down the hammer on Mueller. In 2009 the FBI had evidence that Russian officials were engaged in numerous schemes of bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering on the orders of Vlad Putin. The FBI kept this information from Congress and the public. In the mean time Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved a deal to sell 20% of our uranium to Russia. Russia, in turn sent millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Mueller was the FBI director at the time. THIS IS THE GREATEST COVER-UP OF ALL TIME. 

Fire Mueller Now!

THE TWO MONKEY SEE NOTHING, KNOW NOTHING AND DO NOTHING

We are speaking once again about two criminals; Debbie Wasserman Schultz and John Podesta. They don’t know diddley squat. Their brain has turned into mush when questioned, a typical Democrat convenient reply.  They did no evil and saw no evil. Yeah right! Once head of the DNC, Wasserman Schultz and the ex-campaign manager of the disastrous Clinton implosion know nothing about the $12 mil they paid for a Russian dossier. Like all denials coming from their lips, this one is too hard to digest. It falls in the same category as Hillary’s email convulsion, “like with a cloth.” However, this time is different because they meant to entrap Trump by the utilization of a foreign propaganda machine. Joseph Goebbels would be so proud of them. BTW he was a German Nazi politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. And we can’t forget Saul Alinsky who mentor these two sleaze bags. Rules for Radicals.pngJust imagine the s..t these mental midgets would have pulled if Hillary mounted the throne. A Stalin archipelago would have been prepared for conservatives. That was not out of the realm of possibility. We know now what they had in mind, total control of the government; from judges on down the line to the local police force. It didn’t happen and that is a good thing.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz both privately denied to congressional Russia investigators that they had any knowledge about an arrangement to pay for opposition research on President Donald Trump, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

 WE WANT ANSWERS! LOCK THEM UP, MAKE THE LIARS TALK

THE WARDEN AND JAILER

Mr X, a cold blooded killer, alleged to have ordered buttons pushed on fellow gangsters, civilians and lawmen alike. This Capo di tutti Capi Big built a deadly organization that reached all levels and back allies of society. Governors, mayors and police were at his beck and call.  Down through the years his organization cloaked society with a web of threats and blood, lead and brass. But an undercover sleuth was elected to drain the swamp. His charge – to eliminate the scum that has permeated American life for fifty years. This was not to be an easy task because the innocent may go down with the guilty. However, a free and democratic society lies in the balance.

Gangster wars are no longer front page news, like Blacks killing Blacks in Chicago, the media got sick and tired of covering what was now old news. So who cares how many died today? In war zones killing became as ubiquitous as suicide bombers. Blood filled streets didn’t sell like the old days; new stories were mined to attract today’s audiences. But the past still lingered. The new sheriff in town was ready to accept the challenges. Of course he met resistance from the criminals who saturated the land. Being an outsider did not sit well with the local populous, he had a tough road ahead, many saw him as the enemy, he was to challenge the status quo; his objective was to find out the truth, he would call a spade a spade. This was the United States where legal terms were parsed by hired guns, the rich and powerful never seem to face the music.

Not only was the Deep State out to sabotage our hired gun, but the fourth estate took and active role too with biased reporting and false news. Image result

The hierarchy of past was on the warpath, with the help of judges, regulations and media outlets and the corrupt bureaucracy they began to unload their shotguns in the hope that one shot will take him down. Calls for impeachment reached a crescendo and from none other than those with brains the size of peas. Locked and loaded from the beginning he is facing his adversaries massive firepower,

His posse is on the trail of a ruthless individual who was threatened at gunpoint. Documents will reveal the truth that her ovaries were pulverized by Mr. Big, she lied down like a cheap whore; was it to be life or death? – in the end it was life. Mr. Big has silenced another threat continuing down the teflon paved road.  The way was now clear, no more obstacles were in the way, so he thought. In the end it was not to be. A egomaniac couldn’t hold his mouth, a speed bump, a roadblock put an end to the dream.

However, all is not lost. The force be with us now.  Ankle chains and wrist bracelets wait to be locked, keys to be thrown away. Americans who seek truth and justice wait for the guilty one to tell all,  to face the crime she committed.

They are coming for you Loretta Lynch, you will talk. Waterboarding or not. Lock her up.

 

A GERMAN’S VOICE ON ISLAM – SILENCE NOW – DEATH LATER

‘In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends’.   Martin Luther King

A German’s View on Islam

Muslim Terrorism, past, present and future.

The author of this email is a German, well-known and well-respected, psychiatrist.  A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

 

‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.’  My family lost everything.  I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.

‘We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.

‘Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant.  It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

‘The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march.  It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.

‘It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave.  It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

‘The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,‘ is cowed and extraneous.

‘Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

‘China ‘s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

‘The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving?

‘History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt Yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our Enemy if they don’t speak up.  Like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them and the end of their world will have begun.

‘Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

‘Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in  Ottawa, too, while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive? The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.In many USA School Districts, especially California, ISLAM is being taught in schools and prayer time alloted while Christianity is banned.

‘In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.

‘In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.

‘As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.’

Extend yourself a bit and send this on. Let us hope that thousands world-wide read this, think about it,  and send it on before it’s too late, and we are silenced because we were silent!!

 

 

 

TIME FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL TO BRING RICO CASE AGAINST MUELLER, COMEY, CLINTON

The criminal in charge of the Russia investigation is none other than Robert Mueller, the previous head of the FBI, the consummate Democrat crony who has colluded with the DNC and still is. remember the FBI under his auspices partly paid for the Russian dossier authored by Steele.  Calls for his head are getting louder and even some of his most ardent supporters are demanding he step down.

Time for Sessions to get into the act. Time for Trump to bring down the hammer. We have enough of this Big Government incestual relationship with the Democrats. Clean House Now! Fire them all. President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested in a tweet that the FBI could have financed a dossier alleging collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia. Trump has denied the scandalous allegations in the 35-page dossier, which was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and leaked just prior to Trump’s inauguration. On Wednesday, two executives of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier, invoked their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, following a subpoena by the House Intelligence Committee. The FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue his work in October 2016, as it was investigating possible Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, but ultimately scrapped the agreement without paying him. How do we know they didn’t?

Sean Hannity, “For more than a year, Democrats and their pals in the abusively biased press have been breathlessly talking about Russia-Trump collusion as if it were the worst scandal in American history. After a year, the best they can do is somberly insist there is smoke, but no fire. The truth is, there is no smoke. Trump collusion with Russia has been a big lie.”

“We have evidence of another Russia scandal, also involving a 2016 candidate not named Trump. We now know that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid over $9 million to help fund the discredited, Russia-linked dossier crafted to ruin then-candidate Donald Trump. This was nothing short of a collaborative effort with the Russians to manipulate the outcome of the last presidential election.”

“Not that there wasn’t Russian collusion with a 2016 presidential candidate. It’s just that her name was not Trump. We now have real evidence that the FBI uncovered a Russian plot dating back to 2009 that involved bribery, extortion, blackmail, money laundering and racketeering. It all came a year before Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration approved the corrupt Uranium One deal.”

Being able to definitively tie the Clinton campaign and the D.N.C. to the Steele dossier is sure to give Republicans another line of attack against special counsel Robert Mueller. But that doesn’t change the fact that much of what Steele found—muddled as it may be by rumor, innuendo, and possible Russian disinformation—was deemed sufficiently credible by the F.B.I. for the agency to begin working with Steele and, ultimately, to fund his research—at least until his name was made public. The broader intelligence community found the allegations sufficiently credible that they gave classified briefings to members of Congress and, in January, days before the inauguration, presented a two-page synopsis to then-President Obama and President-elect Trump. Many of those details have since been confirmed, though the dossier’s most outrageous claims have not. The overall legitimacy of that intelligence, including allegations that Russia may have compromising personal and financial information about the current president, remains a matter of significant public concern.

The House Intelligence Committee said Saturday it has struck a deal to gain access to bank records from Fusion GPS, the firm behind the salacious anti-Trump dossier.

The company had recently attempted to block the committee’s subpoena for its banking records.

“The parties have reached an agreement related to the House Intelligence Committee’s subpoena for Fusion GPS’s bank records that will secure the Committee’s access to the records necessary for its investigation,” the intelligence committee said in a statement released Saturday.

THE HEAD OF THE DNC SAYS ELECTORAL COLLEGE NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION

Anti American, anti White spineless Tom Perez, who stepped into lead the DNC after Debbie Wasserman-Schultz hard fall , foamed from the mouth today like a rabid dog.

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez incorrectly stated “the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution” during a Tuesday night speech.

The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution,” Perez said during a lecture at Indiana University Law School. “It doesn’t have to be there.”

The Electoral College, a mechanism for indirect election of the president created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between smaller states and larger states, is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.”

TRUMP TO IRS COMMISSIONER KOSKINEN “YOUR FIRED”

The Tea Party fired the criminal head of the IRS today. The next step is to get to the bottom of who put Lois Lerner up to targeting to it. We know she knows; why else will this hussy invoke the fifth amendment? There is not other way to define this female dog for what she did to us. Now the IRS will have to pay up.

Any employee of the United States government who takes the fifth should be immediately fire and relieved of their benefits and pension. Because they work for us, they are our employee, we pay them and expect that they answer any question relevant to their work to be answered.  In private industry they would be given the  ax in a microsecond.

PREVIOUS POST;

Tea Party entities were targeted under the direct order of Barack Hussein Obama; Lois Lerner knelt down in serving the master and his cause. Now it has come to our attention that the Holder justice department has given Lerner a free pass; they have eliminated the possibility of arrest.  This government employee, a servant acting under Obama’s auspices has spit at and trampled the Constitutional right of Freedom of the Press and Speech of the TEA PARTY.

A government employee who takes the 5th amendment is guilty as charged.  Clam up and you are guilty, go straight to jail. Government employees have no right to remain silent. They have taken an oath to obey the laws of the land. This did not happen.  They must be tried in the People’s court by We The People. Otherwise there is a conflict of interest when the government is the judge and jury. Therefore, without any reservations, this woman should be arrested by the Sargent at Arms, prosecuted and incarcerated.

What has happened here is unprecedented; an administration that targets its own citizens, stifles their freedoms and then dispenses goodies to criminal government employees. A REVOLUTION is the only answer to a lawless government. Join us in targeting every Democrat and Republican alike who has condoned this sorry chapter in our history.

The Obama Administration’s latest gift to the former IRS tax-exempt chief came recently when U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Ron Macheninformed the House of Representatives that he would not file charges on its formal contempt citation against Ms. Lerner. This absolution, which shields Ms. Lerner from a grand jury probe, came on Mr. Machen’s final day on the job.

An off shoot to this affair is the destruction of emails by government employees destroying their illegal actions which is prima facie evidence of their criminality.

PREVIOUS POST;

Lois Lerner and the IRS said emails and paper trails did not exist. Months or was it years later, the Koskinen guy was forced to produce them by a federal judge. 

But conservatives are intent on exploring Mr. Koskinen’s actions after the IRS was ordered to preserve and turn over documents related to targeting of tea party groups — and particularly emails from former senior executive Lois G. Lerner.  Mr. Koskinen’s accusers say he failed to comply with a congressional subpoena on those documents, and instead allowed backup tapes of the emails to be destroyed.

He also said his agency was unable to find the backups of some of Ms. Lerner’s emails — but the IRS’ own internal auditor was able to discover thousands of them with little effort. The internal auditor concluded that the agency erased 422 backup tapes that should have been protected by the subpoena.

THE HANGMAN’S NOOSE – GETTING TIGHTER

UPDATE: Hillary to go yellow pants as DOJ to allow (click)BI informant to testify in front of House and Senate committees.  Kryptonite testimony expected to permeate the Clintons defenses in the Uraniumonegate affair.

In a statement, the department said it had authorized the informant to speak to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, in addition to select staffers.

The department said the informant could provide “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market,” including Russian company Rosatom, subsidiary Tenex, Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation.

 

 

The stage has been set, the wooden platform is ready, the noose awaiting a neck, the executioner is ready to pull the lever opening the trap door. All that is needed is a participant. Draping the woven hemp rope over the soon to be victims black hooded head will cause the ever ready crowd to stir. Clang, the noose tightens like a lasso thrown by a cowboy culling a steer from the herd.   Image result for the hangman's noose old western movie Johnny Law justice on the prairie.

We are relishing the day when the Clinton mob faces the hangman. We can see their quickening gate circling the wagons, nervous moisture glistens their foreheads when suddenly scary thoughts appear – will jail be in their futures. Other questions arise; does anyone one of them break from the cult of lies to cut a deal and bring down the herd? These are very real concerns to the cabal of Clinton. Who will be the first to talk, to tell the truth for once, to expose the lies, falsehoods, dead end leads; remember Seth Rich; dead on arrival – suicide was the official reason –Vince Foster all over again. The Clinton’s have been caught holding the smoking gun. There is no way out of this one, once the truth be told.  Lock her up, jail the bird.

Conspiracy theories aside, the real Russian story is going nuclear thanks to Sean Hannity and Fox News. They are all over it like a cheap suit. An informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is under a gag order that prevents him from testifying before the United States Congress. The information he has will verify the that Russian nuclear officials were involved in fraudulent dealings in 2009 before the Uranium One deal was approved by the Clinton State Department.

Of course Hillary repeats the same line over and over again; the canned reply. “They looked at and there were no laws broken nor quid pro quos. Obfuscation again and again, but there is no running from this caper. The democrat entrenched justice department through the whole investigation under the rug. Who ran the Justice Department back then? Who ran the FBI? Does the name Holder and Mueller ring a bell? Hillary says they looked at it and concluded that no laws were broken.  “It’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone.”

However, the Republicans are now in chargew, hiding places and cover-ups are becoming scarce.  Dirty tricks reminiscent of the Nixon years are now coming to light.

Clinton campaign paid for a Russian dossier. The controversial dossier containing salacious allegations about President Donald Trump and his possible connections to Russia, including coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, resulted from funding by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee to the firm Fusion GPS, a source familiar with the situation confirmed to Fox News.

Fusion GPS was retained by Marc E. Elias, an attorney representing the DNC and the Clinton campaign, The Washington Post first reported Tuesday. Fusion GPS then reportedly hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to write the now-infamous dossier.

Steele had ties both to the U.S. intelligence community and the FBI. The report on the dossier’s funding come just days after the president tweeted about the controversial file. “Officials behind the now discredited ‘Dossier’ plead the Fifth,” Trump tweeted on Oct 21. “Justice Department and/or FBI should immediately release who paid for it.”

THE REAL RUSSIAN CONSPIRACY – HIDDEN UNTIL NOW – TIME FOR JUSTICE TO PREVAIL

FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow. A QUID PRO QUO, DONATE TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION AND WE WILL APPROVE THE DEAL TO SELL 20% OF THE UNITED STATES URANIUM SUPPLY TO RUSSIA. IT’S A DONE DEAL SAYS HILLARY CLINTON. WHY ISN’T THE BIRD IN JAIL; LOCK HER UP, NOW! THROW AWAY THE KEY. AMERICA HAS HAD IT WITH THESE CRIMINALS.

READ BELOW – WE CALL FOR RICO INDICTMENTS

 FROM THE  HILL  The Hill logo.jpeg

 

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.

The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

When this sale was used by Trump on the campaign trail last year, Hillary Clinton’s spokesman said she was not involved in the committee review and noted the State Department official who handled it said she “never intervened … on any [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] matter.”

In 2011, the administration gave approval for Rosatom’s Tenex subsidiary to sell commercial uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants in a partnership with the United States Enrichment Corp. Before then, Tenex had been limited to selling U.S. nuclear power plants reprocessed uranium recovered from dismantled Soviet nuclear weapons under the 1990s Megatons to Megawatts peace program.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.

The Obama administration’s decision to approve Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One has been a source of political controversy since 2015.

That’s when conservative author Peter Schweitzer and The New York Times documented how Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees and his charitable foundation collected millions in donations from parties interested in the deal while Hillary Clinton presided on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

The Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions at the time, insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of the committee to oppose the Uranium One deal.

But FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.

Then-Attorney General Eric Holder was among the Obama administration officials joining Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States at the time the Uranium One deal was approved. Multiple current and former government officials told The Hill they did not know whether the FBI or DOJ ever alerted committee members to the criminal activity they uncovered.

Spokesmen for Holder and Clinton did not return calls seeking comment. The Justice Department also didn’t comment.

Mikerin was a director of Rosatom’s Tenex in Moscow since the early 2000s, where he oversaw Rosatom’s nuclear collaboration with the United States under the Megatons to Megwatts program and its commercial uranium sales to other countries. In 2010, Mikerin was dispatched to the U.S. on a work visa approved by the Obama administration to open Rosatom’s new American arm called Tenam.

Between 2009 and January 2012, Mikerin “did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire confederate and agree with other persons … to obstruct, delay and affect commerce and the movement of an article and commodity (enriched uranium) in commerce by extortion,” a November 2014 indictment stated.

His illegal conduct was captured with the help of a confidential witness, an American businessman, who began making kickback payments at Mikerin’s direction and with the permission of the FBI. The first kickback payment recorded by the FBI through its informant was dated Nov. 27, 2009, the records show.

In evidentiary affidavits signed in 2014 and 2015, an Energy Department agent assigned to assist the FBI in the case testified that Mikerin supervised a “racketeering scheme” that involved extortion, bribery, money laundering and kickbacks that were both directed by and provided benefit to more senior officials back in Russia.

“As part of the scheme, Mikerin, with the consent of higher level officials at TENEX and Rosatom (both Russian state-owned entities) would offer no-bid contracts to US businesses in exchange for kickbacks in the form of money payments made to some offshore banks accounts,” Agent David Gadren testified.

“Mikerin apparently then shared the proceeds with other co-conspirators associated with TENEX in Russia and elsewhere,” the agent added.

The investigation was ultimately supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who now serves as President Trump’s deputy attorney general, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, now the deputy FBI director under Trump, Justice Department documents show.

Both men now play a key role in the current investigation into possible, but still unproven, collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s campaign during the 2016 election cycle. McCabe is under congressional and Justice Department inspector general investigation in connection with money his wife’s Virginia state Senate campaign accepted in 2015 from now-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe at a time when McAuliffe was reportedly under investigation by the FBI. The probe is not focused on McAuliffe’s conduct but rather on whether McCabe’s attendance violated the Hatch Act or other FBI conflict rules.

The connections to the current Russia case are many. The Mikerin probe began in 2009 when Robert Mueller, now the special counsel in charge of the Trump case, was still FBI director. And it ended in late 2015 under the direction of then-FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired earlier this year.

Its many twist and turns aside, the FBI nuclear industry case proved a gold mine, in part because it uncovered a new Russian money laundering apparatus that routed bribe and kickback payments through financial instruments in Cyprus, Latvia and Seychelles. A Russian financier in New Jersey was among those arrested for the money laundering, court records show.

The case also exposed a serious national security breach: Mikerin had given a contract to an American trucking firm called Transport Logistics International that held the sensitive job of transporting Russia’s uranium around the United States in return for more than $2 million in kickbacks from some of its executives, court records show.

One of Mikerin’s former employees told the FBI that Tenex officials in Russia specifically directed the scheme to “allow for padded pricing to include kickbacks,” agents testified in one court filing.

Bringing down a major Russian nuclear corruption scheme that had both compromised a sensitive uranium transportation asset inside the U.S. and facilitated international money laundering would seem a major feather in any law enforcement agency’s cap.

But the Justice Department and FBI took little credit in 2014 when Mikerin, the Russian financier and the trucking firm executives were arrested and charged.

The only public statement occurred a year later when the Justice Department put out a little-noticed press release in August 2015, just days before Labor Day. The release noted that the various defendants had reached plea deals.

By that time, the criminal cases against Mikerin had been narrowed to a single charge of money laundering for a scheme that officials admitted stretched from 2004 to 2014. And though agents had evidence of criminal wrongdoing they collected since at least 2009, federal prosecutors only cited in the plea agreement a handful of transactions that occurred in 2011 and 2012, well after the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States’s approval.

The final court case also made no mention of any connection to the influence peddling conversations the FBI undercover informant witnessed about the Russian nuclear officials trying to ingratiate themselves with the Clintons even though agents had gathered documents showing the transmission of millions of dollars from Russia’s nuclear industry to an American entity that had provided assistance to Bill Clinton’s foundation, sources confirmed to The Hill.

The lack of fanfare left many key players in Washington with no inkling that a major Russian nuclear corruption scheme with serious national security implications had been uncovered.

On Dec. 15, 2015, the Justice Department put out a release stating that Mikerin, “a former Russian official residing in Maryland was sentenced today to 48 months in prison” and ordered to forfeit more than $2.1 million.

Ronald Hosko, who served as the assistant FBI director in charge of criminal cases when the investigation was underway, told The Hill he did not recall ever being briefed about Mikerin’s case by the counterintelligence side of the bureau despite the criminal charges that were being lodged.

“I had no idea this case was being conducted,” a surprised Hosko said in an interview.

Likewise, major congressional figures were also kept in the dark.

Former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), who chaired the House Intelligence Committee during the time the FBI probe was being conducted, told The Hill that he had never been told anything about the Russian nuclear corruption case even though many fellow lawmakers had serious concerns about the Obama administration’s approval of the Uranium One deal.

“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.”
