After years of many Americans wanting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being held accountable for her many scandals, a top official with ties to Clinton has been indicted in the Uranium One scandal.
An 11-count indictment was handed down on Friday in Greenbelt, Maryland, against 54-year-old Mark Lambert, the “former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad.”
The Department of Justice revealed that Lambert was charged with “one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud, and one count of international promotion money laundering.”
According to the DOJ’s statement, there was substantial evidence that a major corruption scheme took place:
The charges [against Lambert] stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.
TENEX serves as the commercial sales division of the Russian nuclear company Rosatom, which bought out and took control of Uranium One in 2013.
The FBI has specifically focused on whether investors who gave sizable donations to the Clinton Foundation received political favors in return when Clinton was secretary of state.
The Uranium One scandal involved the Clinton Foundation receiving massive political donations in exchange for Clinton’s State Department approving the sale of 20 percent of the United States uranium to the Russia nuclear company Rosatom.
Officials associated with the sale reportedly donated roughly $145 million to the Clinton Foundation to sway the deal, and former President Bill Clinton was also given $500,000 from a bank with ties to the Kremlin for giving a single speech in Moscow.
While Clinton has skirted charges for many years, we are actually seeing tangible results coming to fruition in the Uranium One scandal. In less than a month since the investigation into the scandal began, we already have one major indictment.
It’s more than obvious Clinton broke the law on dozens of occasions, and all roads in the scandal lead back to the Clinton family – leading many to believe the corrupt Clinton family will finally be held accountable for their actions.
The Real Russiagate!

All Good Things Must Come to an End
Clinton and Obama Allowed Corruption in the Uranium Industry
Will Powers January 18, 2018
While the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election has resulted in four indictments so far, there is little or no evidence of any collusion between President Vladimir Putin and the Trump campaign.
The first of four indictments was for Michael Flynn, who plead guilty in December 2017, to lying to the FBI, not to mention the Trump administration, which was the reason for his termination, about a conversation he had with a Russian ambassador. In these discussions, US sanctions were on the table. This discussions included senior officials on the Trump transition team.
In this report, there is no smoking gun, no quid pro quo, no pay for play, no you steal me an election, I’ll take sanctions off the table.
In October, Paul Manfort and his deputy Rick Gates were indicted on charges unrelated to the Trump campaign.
And George Demetrios Papadopoulos, a-thirty-year-old foreign policy adviser on the Trump campaign, who plead guilty in Oct. 2017 to lying to the FBI about his encounters with foreign nationals, including two Russians, looking for '"'dirt'" related to emails' concerning Clinton." Trying to dig up some dirt on the Clinton’s during the campaign, what a shocker. The question is, did they have a deal with the Russians for the information, in exchange for somehow stealing an election?
Unfortunately for Mueller and his investigation, there is no evidence the Russians stole the 2016 election.
However, another matter is the real deal, an indictment, not for any member of the Trump team, but for Mark Lambert, former co-president of a transit firm in Maryland, a company that dealt in uranium, that wallows in the same greasy pit of corruption that Uranium One inhabits, involving former President Obama and Hillary Clinton, while she served as Secretary of Defense.
While this should be a top story on every news outlet, networks with a liberal bias, such as CNN, NPR, the New York Times all follow the Trump/Russian collusion narrative, instead of focusing on any Clinton corruption, while they pretend Special Council for the Department of Justice, Robert Mueller is going to have a break-through in the case any day now. The lone wolfs on this indictment story are Fox News, Briebart and The Hill.
And now, NeighborhoodWatch will join the pack.
54-year-old Mark Lambert, head of a transit firm in Maryland, was hit with an 11-count indictment for wire fraud, money laundering, and bribery. He bribed and gave kick-backs to “a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX”, or JSC Techsnabexport, which is controlled by Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation, the only supplier and exporter of “Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide.” To cover for the lost money, Lambert and his co-conspirators, would create false invoices for off-shore accounts, belonging to a dummy corporation, that would over-bill TENEX.

On Fox News Insider, Tom Fitton, judicial watch president since August 1998, claims this kind of activity proliferated due to “the Uranium One related decision making by the Obama administration” despite the fact the former president knew “this kind of activity was going on,” that kick-backs and bribes are “endemic” in Russian industry, no matter where they operate. And to top it all off, the Russians were giving generously to the Clinton Foundation “to make sure the right decisions would be made by the State Department [Department of State] under Hillary Clinton.” These donations were made in tens of millions of dollars.
Tom Fitton should know. He has been investigating, and filing FOIA requests with the DOJ on Obama and Clinton for years now. His book The Corruption Chronicles, published in 2012, purports to expose the hidden truth behind the Obama administration.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions encouraged the DOJ to reopen the Uranium One case. This indictment may be a byproduct of their investigation into the Clinton Foundation and Russia. Fitton doesn’t think it’s coincidental that the DOJ under Obama was “hiding this in plain sight from the American people”, and certainly hiding “key elements” from congress. Then the DOJ under “Jeff Sessions responds by saying we’re going to take another look at this. There’s a new indictment to follow up on the indictment that is already out there, or a conviction… from 2015.”
According to Fitton, this is a follow-up investigation that started in Little Rock Arkansas. Both the FBI and the Attorney General are looking into pay to play allegations on the part of the Clinton Foundation. “One would hope Uranium One is part of it.” He claims there were tens of millions of dollars that were laundered by the Russians through the Clinton Foundation.
Fitton concludes by saying, the American people need to feel reassured our uranium supplies are secure. (2)

In looking into these pay for play allegations, I came across another interview on Tucker Carlson, with Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute, a 63-year-old author, political advisor, and television personality. In one performance, he is noted for mocking the liberal establishment and the Clinton’s in particular for their “Do as I Say (Not as I Do)” hypocrisy. (3)
Schweizer said the Clinton’s have set up a Political Action Committee to accept donations from both known and secretive sources as a way of controlling a large amount of money for any particular candidate. He said, “If they can’t be kings, then they want to be king makers.”
Fox News has confirmed an on-going investigation by the FBI is underway in Little Rock, Ark., looking into allegations the Clinton Foundation had “pay to play” policies in place to secure donations to the foundation in exchange for favors granted while she was secretary of state. Multiple interviews have been conducted connected with the probe. Investigators are seeing if she broke any tax laws. The Hill deserves credit for breaking the story on January 4. (4)
Focusing on the Clinton Foundation, Schweizer started off by saying how Global Initiative, one branch of the Clinton Foundation was shut down right after the 2016 election in December. Since then a number of governments have withdrawn their support, including Australia, and Norway diminished contributions amounting to 87%, according to Schweizer and ZeroHedge, so the foundation is way off it’s high of “250 million dollars”. Schweizer said is was a “pay to play system” and contributions are way down because the Clinton’s are no longer in power. He said, we know from the Podesta emails that is exactly what it was, an exchange of favors for donations. (5)
