Feds Drop Indictment On Exec Tied To Clinton Uranium One Bribery Scandal

In the world of political scandals, it can be incredibly difficult to sift through the noise to determine exactly how much fire has actually broken out behind all of that smoke. Partisan talking points are quickly interjected whenever one breaks out, and those on opposite sides of the argument yell incessantly to bolster their cases about the perceived innocence or guilt of the person in question.

We’ve all had a front row seat to that for years, but it’s been even more pronounced in recent times. The run-up to the 2016 presidential election produced more scandals than you can shake a stick at - some new, some old - and the debates are still raging about many of them.

On the one hand, we have President Donald Trump and his alleged misdeeds. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been tasked with sorting through allegations of whether or not there was any collusion between Russia and his campaign, and the investigation shows no signs of being wrapped up anytime soon.

Harsh critics of the president have already convicted him regardless of the outcome, while supporters contend the whole thing is much ado about nothing. The same thing has happened with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

She’s been accused of all kinds of things, and the voices are just as pronounced on both sides of the argument. There are folks that feel strongly that she’s been responsible for many dirty deeds, while supporters contend she’s as clean as a whistle.

So which one is it? We can’t say for certain due to the confusing web of information that’s out there, but we can take a close look at the big clues that pop up here and there.

As The Blaze shares, a large one has come to light in regards to the Uranium One deal, which some allege was facilitated by the former Secretary of State for underhanded reasons.

Mark Lambert, the former head of a Maryland transportation company, has been indicted on 11 counts of money laundering and wire fraud. He’s been accused of attempting to bribe an official at a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corp.

A statement from the Department of Justice provides some clarity on how Lambert is tied into things.

“The charges 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,” the statement read in part.

“Beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at “Transportation Corporation A” to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX.”

So does this mean that the implications that Clinton was up to no good with this deal are one hundred percent accurate? Of course not, but additional information has a way of magically coming to light once indictments are dished out.

We’ll have to stay tuned to this one, as there may be an inferno raging somewhere after all.
