Sen. Chuck Grassley Demands DOJ Respond to Questions About “Clinton Cash” Uranium Transfer to RUSSIA

The Clinton scandal saga just keeps growing, this time including the Russian government and controlling interest in a company owning 20 percent of America’s Uranium deposits. Sen. Charles Grassley sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking several questions about the authorization of Russia’s “takeover” of United States Uranium assets.


From Breitbart:

Grassley sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, asking her to answer several questions about the deal that was approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) an interagency panel on which representatives of the Department of Treasury, the Department of State, the Department of Justice and six other cabinet departments or agencies sit.

The agency, authorized statutorily by the Foreign Investment and National Security Act of 2007 (FINSA) is required to review and approve or reject any foreign investments in American companies, or foreign companies that own substantial American assets, that will have an impact on national security.

At the time of the 2010 CFIUS approval of the Uranium One-ARMZ transaction, Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State. Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Jose W. Fernandez served as her representative on CFIUS.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder headed the Department of Justice at the time of the 2010 transaction. It has not been publicly reported who from the Department of Justice represented him on the CFIUS panel at the time.

“In light of the gravity of the decision to allow a Russian takeover of almost a quarter of U.S. uranium assets,” Grassley wrote, “it is in the public interest to determine the facts and circumstances of the transaction, including any potential donations that could have influenced the CFIUS review process.”

In his letter, Grassley asked Lynch to answer these four questions by July 16:

1. What role did the Department of Justice play in the Uranium One/ARMZ transaction? Please explain in detail.

2. Please list the Department of Justice personnel that were involved in the Uranium One/ARMZ transaction.

3. Did Secretary Clinton’s relationship with the Clinton Foundation require her to recuse herself from the CFIUS’s review of the Uranium One/ARMZ transaction? If so, did she recuse herself? If the relationship did not require recusal, please explain why not.

4. Was Attorney General Holder briefed by Department of Justice personnel regarding the Uranium One/ARMZ transaction? If so, by whom and how many times? If not, why not?

So what do you think? Is this something about which Americans should be concerned?
