Biden Threatens to Use CFIUS to Investigate Elon Musk – Same Entity Approved Sale of Uranium One to Russia
Biden is threatening to investigate Elon Musk for standing up for free speech and against censorship. He’ll use the same entity that approved the sale of Uranium One to Russia.
Yesterday it was reported that Biden is planning on using the Committee on Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS) to investigate Musk’s purchase of Twitter.
This is the same group that approved of Russia’s purchase of 20% of the US uranium market under the Obama Administration which resulted in the Clinton Foundation receiving over $140 million in donations.
As reported this morning on the corrupt acts of Andrew Weissmann, the Obama Administration approved the sale of Uranium One to Russia which landed the Clinton Foundation over $140 million in donations.
Andrew McCarthy reported:
The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal.
The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their “public service.” The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.The Obama administration also knew that congressional Republicans were trying to stop the transfer. Consequently, the Justice Department concealed what it knew. DOJ allowed the racketeering enterprise to continue compromising the American uranium industry rather than commencing a prosecution that would have scotched the transfer. Prosecutors waited four years before quietly pleading the case out for a song, in violation of Justice Department charging guidelines. Meanwhile, the administration stonewalled Congress, reportedly threatening an informant who wanted to go public…
…Uranium is foundational to nuclear power and thus to American national security. As the New York Times explained in a report on the disturbing interplay between the Clinton Foundation and the transfer of American uranium assets to Russia, the United States gets a fifth of its electrical power from nuclear energy, but only produces a fifth of the uranium it needs. Consequently, a foreign entity would not be able to acquire rights to American uranium without the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
CFIUS is composed of the leaders of 14 U.S. government agencies involved in national security and commerce…
McCarthy notes that in 2010 Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a single speech in Russia and the Clinton Foundation at about the same time made $145 million in donations from sources connected to the sale of Uranium One to Russia.
The national security case involved a man named Mikerin who was arrested for racketeering and more related to an extortion racket against US energy companies by Russia. An informant had kept the FBI informed of the case since at least 2010.
…a lid needed to be kept on the case. It would have made for an epic Obama administration scandal, and a body blow to Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes, if in the midst of Russia’s 2014 aggression, public attention had been drawn to the failure, four years earlier, to prosecute a national-security case in order to protect Russia’s takeover of U.S. nuclear assets.

America has been taken over by a criminal and corrupt gang of nasty individuals who don’t care about justice, only power.
