Did Bill Clinton Make $500,000 To Help Russian Investment Company Take Over Largest Uranium Suppliers To US?
NEW YORK TIMES — WITH BILL CLINTON’S HELP, MOSCOW INVESTMENT COMPANY BUYS URANIUM COMPANY THAT SUPPLIES 20% OF AMERICA’S URANIUM. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining financier, wins a major uranium deal in Kazakhstan for his company, UrAsia, days after visiting the country with former President Bill Clinton.
Mr. Giustra donates $31.3 million to the Clinton Foundation.
UrAsia merges with a South African mining company and assumes the name Uranium One. In the next two months, the company expands into the United States.
Negotations begin for an investment in Uranium One by the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom.
Uranium One and former UrAsia investors make $8.65 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One investors stand to profit on a Rosatom deal.
Rosatom subsidiary ARMZ takes a 17 percent ownership stake in Uranium One.
Investors give millions more in donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Rosatom seeks majority ownership of Uranium One, pending approval by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, of which the State Department is a member.
