Hillary’s Actions In Uranium One Deal Might Be Treason

With the revelations surrounding Hillary Clinton and Uranium One, former Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka said recently that people have been guilty of treason and even executed for the same actions.
Gorka made the comment during a Hannity appearance. The Uranium One deal involves the sale of Canadian mining firm Uranium One to the Russian state-owned firm Rosatom in 2010, while Clinton was Secretary of State (SOS). Many things seem odd about the sale, leading Gorka to say, “The Russians infiltrated our national security to corner the uranium market and they succeeded.”
Gorka compared Clinton’s actions to famous 1950s spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who leaked America’s nuclear secrets to Russia and were found guilty of treason and espionage, imprisoned and executed by electric chair:  “They’re equivalent to what the Rosenbergs did and those people got the chair. Think about it. Giving away nuclear capability to our enemies, that’s what we’re talking about.”
Here’s what happened in 2010. Uranium One has mining rights in Wyoming–that’s the U.S. connection. The Wyoming interests equal 20 percent of America’s uranium capacity. In short, Wyoming has a lot of uranium. In the sale, Rosatom received two uranium licenses—one for Wyoming and another for prospecting in Colorado, Utah and Arizona.
Deals like this involve lots of paperwork, first by CFIUS, the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States. CFIUS has nine members, one of which is SOS. CFIUS can approve sales but can’t stop sales; only the POTUS can. No public notes exist about CFIUS and Uranium One. Hillary didn’t even serve on the committee. She appointed deputy Jose Fernandez instead. He told the New York Times that Clinton never did anything to stop the sale or question the deal. If any of the nine members had objected, it would have hit Obama’s desk. It didn’t.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) was next to review and they approved the deal, with two stipulations: the uranium could only be used for peaceful endeavors and could not be exported out of the United States.
But in 2012, Rosatum obtained an export license to move the material from Wyoming to Canada for processing, then back to the US to be used at civil nuclear power plants. It gets complicated because Canada also has an export license. Theoretically, they are supposed to get U.S. approval to ship the uranium to any other country. Hannity and others have reported that both Russia and Canada may not be able to account for all the uranium, despite the NRC assuring Congress that uranium has not been shipped elsewhere.
To add fuel to the fire (no pun intended), the Uranium One deal coincides with some pretty hefty payments to The Clinton Foundation.
Bill received a cool $500,000 for a Moscow speech to RCG, a company with open Kremlin ties, just days before the CFIUS review. Millions more came in from Uranium One itself, but Clinton never disclosed the donations, despite White House requirements to do so. Later, she apologized for the mistake, saying that Uranium One donated via other charities, so the Foundation missed it in their bookkeeping. Yeah, right.
