Senate Investigating Another Major Obama Scandal

Yet another scandal is arising from the former Obama administration.

Recent news just broke of the bribery scheme, which launched a full-fledged Senate Judiciary Committee Investigation.

While the Committee intends to find the source of the bribe and bring those involved to justice, the real question is whether Obama knew about the bribery scheme while still in office.

The case fell directly under Obama’s jurisdiction in office, as the controversial Moscow nuclear deal occurred in 2010.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating federal officials to see if the FBI knew of the racketeering, which may have occurred as early as 2009.

The Hill reports:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the committee chairman, on Wednesday raised the issue in public during questioning of Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an oversight hearing.

The senator cited a series of The Hill stories that showed the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear officials were involved in a racketeering scheme as early as 2009, well before the uranium deal was approved.

“According to government documents and recent news reports, the Justice Department had an ongoing criminal investigation for bribery, extortion, money laundering, into officials for a Russian company making purchase of Uranium One,” Grassley said. “That purchase was approved during previous administration and resulted in Russians owning 20 percent of America’s uranium mining capacity.

“What are you doing to find out how Russian takeover of American uranium was allowed to occur despite criminal conduct by Russian company that the Obama administration approved to make the purchase?” he asked Sessions.

Sessions responded: “I would offer that some people have gone to jail in that transaction already, but the article talks about other issues. Without confirming or denying existence of any particular investigation, I would say I hear your concerns and they will be reviewed.”

Senate Judiciary aides said the committee had sent requests for information to 10 federal agencies involved in the Russian uranium approvals.

The committee is discussing other bipartisan requests to make in the coming days, and Grassley also is expected to seek access to potential witnesses soon, escalating from the information requests he made a few years back, according to people familiar with the investigation.

Former President Barack Obama himself is now under scrutiny as well.

At the time of the deal, President Obama claimed there were no other options than to make a nuclear deal with Russia.

But several members of the Senate no longer accept that as fact.

The Hill reports:

The senator also specifically conveyed in recent letters he no longer accepts the Obama administration’s assurances from 2015 that there was no basis to block the Uranium One deal.

“I am not convinced by these assurances,” Grassley wrote the Homeland Security Department last week. “The sale of Uranium One resulted in a Russian government takeover of a significant portion of U.S. uranium mining capacity. In light of that fact, very serious questions remain about the basis for the finding that this transaction did not threaten to impair U.S. national security.”

Though Obama has fervently denied he had no idea the bribery occurred, evidence is mounting to the contrary.

Do you believe Obama oversaw a bribery scheme with transaction?

    Of course he did. He made the statement that there was no other choice, therefore, he knew.

  • Rick

    Did you ever see anything in his 8 years with all his actions even resemble that of a devout Christian American Patriot?Of course not he and his whole band should be in prison. He is just as fake as CNN and the rest who sold there soul for a paycheck! By the way if he was out of options why didn’t the money from sale come into the US Treasury instead of the Clinton Foundation?Saul’s best friends B& Hil

    • Gary Smith

      Well said

    • bill soule

      Agree with you Rick but no one will go to jail over anything. Thats whats so frustrating about our Gov. It seems there are “rules” for them to follow — or not– and there are laws for the rest of us.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    another phony investigation , when has any one bin held accountable for their crimes , these investigations are like driving on a road to no where , and it never ends, like hillary our laws don’t apply to them

  • barbarakelly

    You know what —–they are going to uncover more, watch and see. For now just throw his rear in Gitmo and find all the evidence you need. Putting him in prison, hillary will disappear again.!

    • Gary Smith

      Put Hillary with him

    • The_Great_Gearoni

      The whole cabal of them need to charged and tried for treason. Maybe then they will get what they truly deserve (unlike Bergdahl)!

  • LuvleeWA

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THIS!!! MCCAIN IS A MONSTER!!! B SURE TO READ THE WHOLE THING AND U WILL WANT HIM HUNG!!!!!https://www.globalresearch.ca/john-mccain-illegally-travels-to-syria-meets-with-leaders-and-fighting-groups-no-criticism-from-msm/5576594

    • Artemis

      All you need to do is speak to any of us Vets that were in service during the same time frame that the traitor was!

  • Ischgabibble

    He obviously knew what was going on in his administration. All his underlings took their orders directly from him. He is guilty as sin and America finally knows what kind of monsters these people actually are. We should seize the Clinton Cartel bank accounts and see what actually went on behind Americas back with the Russians and Iran. What did Stalin say? The best way to keep your opponent from finding out what you are doing is to deflect and accuse him of your crimes and keep shouting it day after day. Apparently the weak minded on the left will believe anything the anti-Trump crowd of liars will come up with. Intelligence is not their forte.

    • Artemis

      Very good suggestion…It’s great to see “Enlightened Americans” like your self “waking up”!

  • Artemis

    To the best of my knowledge, there has not been ONE prosecution during all of the Clinton or Obama years. Just before Obama “left” office, it was revealed that he broke our laws in excess of EIGHTY, yes 80 times, and some of those “activities” included violations of the Constitution! Just think, we had the “pleasure” of having Communists in our Whitehouse for sixteen years! They’ve been rigging the elections for years and to think otherwise is just plain stupid! NOW is the time for prosecutions……Voter I.D. with a photo like Florida has probably would have prevented most of the “voter fraud”……Wake up people. In a time of National disaster in OTHER Countries, who has always been among, if not the first responder to show up? The USA of course, and that alone shows “who we are”!
    Those of you that are “unhappy” here need to get out, or roll up your sleeves and make something out of yourselves besides whiners!

    Brain cancer is to good for you John. Jimmie Carter may have been an impotent Commander-in-Chief, but he is a true Christian. After his serious battle with brain cancer, he prayed and received a miraculous recovery. I doubt you will fare as well.

    • David in MA

      we can hope it comes slow and painful.

    • keedon

      smoke5713 Carter supports the Palestinians above Israel. He can’t be a good Christian.

      • smoke5713

        Your right, Keedon, I forgot about that. Maybe I should’ve said he’s a good Muslim.

    Has the Department of Justice subpoenaed bank records of payments from Russia? If that money paid by Russia (even from a Canadian company since they were somewhere in the mix) is not found in the Treasury of the U.S., then everyone involved including the Obama, Hillary, and anyone in that administration should have their bank records subpoenaed to find the money that was paid by Russia for the uranium deal. The Obama administration has gotten away with EVERY scandal they have been involved in. Time is up. Everything hidden in darkness will eventually come to light. But what will our present government do about it?

    • David in MA

      Remember the secret flights with cash for Iran, the same could be done here…… LOTS of money unaccounted for and if it cannot be accounted for, those in charge of it MUST go to jail, hopefully at GITMO, for life, OR the hangman’s scaffold!

    • The_Great_Gearoni

      What are you, some kinda racist? You can’t dislike or disagree with anything Obama does or says! You just HAVE TO BE White!

  • tb17

    Why is it that each time I write about honesty, integrity, or pride someone does not like what I say (and it is just truth not demeaning to anyone). Why is it that the media does not like for anyone to express their honest opinion. (They don’t seem to mind people being criticized. ) I don’t get it. I am not even talking about a particular person. It seems this is one of the media that does that, despite their being conservative? CR, there is a right and wrong, whether you want it to be written about or not!!! CR, you are taking away MY FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Please note I will not longer read your newsletter.

  • David in MA

    When will Obama be jailed?

  • Like I have stated before Barack Obama is a traitor and should be indicted for treason and treason carries a death sentence.

  • Joyce

    He is a traitor Obama! Shame on them

  • The_Great_Gearoni

    Of COURSE Obama’s lying! Why would you believe ANYTHING this lying Muslim has to say? (aka “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” et al)

    There are now three major political parties in this country, The Evil Party, The Stupid Party, and the Trump Party. Based on their history, which one are YOU going to believe?
