Theodore Chuang, Maryland’s U.S. District Judge, sentenced Boris Rubizhevsky of Closter, New Jersey to “a year and a day” in prison. The 67-year-old will also face three years of supervised release and a $26,500 fine. Charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering, Boris was the middleman in the Uranium One scheme. His role was “arranging bribes for the awarding of contracts with Russia’s state-owned nuclear energy corporation,” the U.S. Justice Department announced in a statement Monday.
In the five years between 2009, when the F.B.I. started documenting Vadim Mikerin’s money laundering conspiracy, and 2015, when he was finally charged, the Obama administration and the Clintons made quite a few shady moves indicating heavy collusion with Russia. During that time period, nearly $145 million from Russian accounts was funneled to Bill Clinton’s foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. She also sat, along with Eric Holder, on the Committee on Foreign Investment.
All the way back in 2010, Obama and his cronies signed off on “the Uranium One deal” handing control of a fifth of our nation’s uranium extraction capacity to Mikerin’s company TENEX, a subsidiary of Russian atomic energy corporation “Rosatom.” The arrangement resulted in billions of dollars worth of contracts. Then, in 2011, Obama okayed a Rosatom subsidiary “to sell uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants.” At the time, Mikerin was in charge of uranium shipments from Russia. The “Megatons to Megawatts” program extracted uranium from Russian nuclear warheads to be used in U.S. civilian nuclear power plants.
“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.” an inside source recalls. Mikerin pled guilty to charges he “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.” They had hard evidence in 2009 but the Department of “Justice” did nothing for years.
Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) is just learning about the “breathtaking” evidence that Russia was able to manipulate our nuclear energy industry. He didn’t call it a coverup but came close. “Many lawmakers back then had serious concerns about 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.”
Despite the F.B.I. and Justice Department investigations that court records prove were open against Mikerin in 2009, The Obama administration granted him a temporary work visa in December of 2011. They even renewed it in August 2014, just a few weeks before he was “arrested and charged with extortion.”
When Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), learned of this just recently, he shot a terse letter off to Rex Tillerson and Elaine Duke. He told the Secretary of State and the Acting Homeland Security Secretary how much the issue bothers him. “It is concerning that a suspected criminal was able to apply for and renew a work visa while being under FBI investigation.”
Grassley wants to interview the informant who worked undercover to obtain the underlying evidence. Until recently, he has been silenced by a government gag order. The restrictions were lifted but he hasn’t testified yet.
Meanwhile, his attorney has confirmed that the informant was certain everything he said was relayed up the chain of command all the way to Obama, directly through F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller.
While he does not have “firsthand knowledge of what was in the president’s daily briefings, he was told unequivocally by the agents that information from the bribery case had been shared with the president and other senior officials and was given praise for providing that evidence,” attorney Victoria Toensing asserts.
The same Robert Mueller is currently acting as “witch smeller” in charge of the inquisition, determined to find or create, an appearance of collusion between President Trump and the Russians. More and more evidence is piling up that Mueller turned a blind eye to already proven Russian collusion involving Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, their charitable organizations, Barack Obama and others in the Obama administration. Despite his obvious conflict of interest, Mueller still refuses to step down. Some in Congress are calling for a Special Counsel to be appointed to look into it.
