Uranium One deal led to some exports to Europe, memos show

Uranium One deal led to some exports to Europe, memos show


Quote:
After the Obama administration approved the sale of a Canadian mining company with significant U.S. uranium reserves to a firm owned by Russia’s government, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission assured Congress and the public the new owners couldn’t export any raw nuclear fuel from America’s shores.

“No uranium produced at either facility may be exported,” the NRC declared in a November 2010 press release that announced that ARMZ, a subsidiary of the Russian state-owned Rosatom, had been approved to take ownership of the Uranium One mining firm and its American assets.

A year later, the nuclear regulator repeated the assurance in a letter to Sen. John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican in whose state Uranium One operated mines.

“Neither Uranium One Inc. nor AMRZ holds a specific NRC export license. In order to export uranium from the United States, Uranium One Inc. or ARMZ would need to apply for and obtain a specific NRC license authorizing the exports of uranium for use in reactor fuel,” then-NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko wrote to Barrasso.

The NRC never issued an export license to the Russian firm, a fact so engrained in the narrative of the Uranium One controversy that it showed up in The Washington Post’s official fact-checker site this week. “We have noted repeatedly that extracted uranium could not be exported by Russia without a license, which Rosatom does not have,” the Post reported on Monday, linking to the 2011 Barrasso letter.

Yet NRC memos reviewed by The Hill show that it did approve the shipment of yellowcake uranium — the raw material used to make nuclear fuel and weapons — from the Russian-owned mines in the United States to Canada in 2012 through a third party. Later, the Obama administration approved some of that uranium going all the way to Europe, government documents show.

NRC officials said they could not disclose the total amount of uranium that Uranium One exported because the information is proprietary. They did, however, say that the shipments only lasted from 2012 to 2014 and that they are unaware of any exports since then.

NRC officials told The Hill that Uranium One exports flowed from Wyoming to Canada and on to Europe between 2012 and 2014, and the approval involved a process with multiple agencies.

...

The United States actually imports the majority of the uranium it uses as fuel. In 2016, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 24 percent of the imports came from Kazakhstan and 14 percent came from Russia.

The sale of Uranium One to a Russian state-owned firm, however, has created political waves that have led to multiple congressional investigations. Republicans say they want to learn how the sale could have been approved and whether there was political interference.

“The more that surfaces about this deal, the more questions it raises," Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said in a statement released after this story was published. Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has launched an investigation into Uranium One.

"It now appears that despite pledges to the contrary, U.S. uranium made its way overseas as a part of the Uranium One deal," Grassley said in the statement. "What’s more disturbing, those transactions were apparently made possible by various Obama Administration agencies while the Democrat-controlled Congress turned a blind eye.

“Americans deserve assurances that political influence was not a factor in all this. I’m increasingly convinced that a special counsel — someone with no prior involvement in any of these deals — should shine a light on this ordeal and get answers for the American people.”

Government officials told The Hill that the NRC was able to amend the export license affecting Uranium One because of two other decisions previously made by the Obama administration as part of a Russian “reset” in President Obama’s first term.

Nothing burger w/o mayonnaise.

Hillary isn't president and never will be.

Meanwhile, the big Uranium One controversy will slip into the trash heap, where Iran-Contra and WMD lies can be found.

And we just found this out today, what will we find out tomorrow?

We know that Mueller is involved, this deal went down on his watch as he was Director FBI. We also know that Mueller kept the bribery surrounding this from the congressional oversight committees. Mueller's involvement makes it very current.

Plus, a real look at the Clinton Foundation books is needed. And all the members of CFIUS need to be put under oath about their vote.

Right. And Obama was born in Kenya AND cavemen hunted dinosaurs for fun AND Prez Dotard never lies.
The only thing you should be concerned about at the moment is what we found out today about Sessions and what else will come out tomorrow.

BTW, the Clinton Foundation "books" are audited (BY LAW) annually. Those audits are posted online for anyone to see and HAVE been since 1998.

They are.. well lets see Hillary counted HER, BILL AND CHELSEA'S SPEAKING FEES AS DONATIONS TO THE FOUNDATION. oops.

They received money PERSONALLY and the foundation said they were donations to the foundation..

That included the 500,000 dollar payment to Bill just prior to the State Department approving the Uranium one deal.

Now let me see here. I seem to remember there was an election in 2010 ?? Oh yes right the 2010 midterms. The election in which the REPUBLICANS took back the house !!!!!

Unless they PUBLISH the documents to show their proof, the piece is just another political hatchet job.

AND once again IF you would do some fact checks OR check out the financials of the Clinton Foundation you would find that any and all speeches at universites and colleges ARE donated to the foundation. Those are listed in their disclosures. Check it out for yourself.
None of the Clintons take a salary from the foundation. Every president has a foundation and they have ALL taken donations from other countries.

Yes, past presidents and possibly their spouses (including SOS Clinton) get huge speaking fees--ALL OF THEM. AND YES, the Clintons get the highest fees.

Of course we have no idea what Trump's financials are because he has never released them. The Clintons did. So did the Obamas. So did the GW Bushes.
The Carters and the HW Bushes.

If wealthy groups and organizations are willing to pay their fees, then so what?? It's called capitalism. I thought your team liked it??

They donated their speaking fees to the foundation.
That's why the fees are counted as donations to the foundation.
They make plenty of money doing other things.
Fame is fungible in the US, they have huge amounts of fame that can easily be turned into cash.
Which they do.
