Obama Administration THREATENED Uranium One Informant (reblog)
The truly insidious nature of the Uranium One scandal is now coming to light, thanks to the bravery of the FBI’s informant who was critical in prosecuting the Russian agents who carried out a bribery and extortion scheme to get the deal signed. What is the next revelation in this scandalous saga?
According to this informant, who still remains unidentified (probably for his own safety, if anything), the Obama administration threatened him and his career because he wanted to speak out regarding the details of the scandal.
The informant had even brought a lawsuit against the administration because he felt that the information was that important. Last year, the Obama administration wanted him to drop the lawsuit, and threatened him and his career to try and coerce him into doing so, according to The Daily Caller.
“Victoria Toensing, the lawyer for the informant, told The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese that Obama Justice Department lawyers told her client that “his reputation and liberty [was] in jeopardy” if he did not drop a lawsuit against the government.
On Wednesday, the Trump Justice Department released the informant from a confidentiality agreement, clearing the way for him to testify before several congressional committees about his undercover work at Uranium One, a Canada-based energy company that has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton and their family foundation.
In 2010, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), an inter-agency governmental committee that reviews applications for foreign purchases of companies, granted the Russia-owned energy company Rosatom the right to purchase Uranium One.
The informant was working with the FBI from 2009 to 2014 during their investigation of the chicanery surrounding the Uranium One deal. The investigation spanned several years, despite the deal being signed off in 2010. Nonetheless, in spite of the probe’s ongoing nature, no one on the Committee on Foreign Investment, nor anyone in Congress, was informed about the possible criminality the FBI was investigating.
This FBI informant knew what was going on, as he was directly involved in everything for years. The fact that the information still has not been made public is disconcerting, and the fact that he had to file a civil suit to lift the gag order is also disturbing as well. Not to mention the threats made against him to drop the suit. That adds another level of criminality to the entire scandal.
“The Russians have threatened him, and up until just last night the U.S. government has threatened him,” Toensing told Coglianese during an interview on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall.”
“He was told that if he didn’t dismiss the case his reputation and liberty were in jeopardy.”
The good news is that the Justice Department has lifted the gag order on the informant, and at some point soon he will likely testify before Congress about what he knows.
There will be a great deal of controversy surrounding his testimony. He may reveal information that could lead to arrest and prosecution of current and former government officials, at least we hope the information will be that potent and incriminating.
He better have armed security at his home and wherever he goes, 24/7 without fail. I’m sure there are threats against this man’s life beyond what will ever be made public. ~

Obama Appointed a Radical Islamist to Approve Russian Uranium Sale (reblog)
The deal that handed over 20 percent of America’s uranium resources to Vladimir Putin was approved by a radical islamist with a long history of involvement with Muslim Brotherhood-founded organizations.
Aimen Nabi Mir is the former president of the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America. Obama picked him to lead the Committee on Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS), technically a national security post within the Department of the Treasury.
Mir was chairman of the organization from 2009 to 2014. During that time, he was instrumental in CFIUS’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s agency Rosatom.
Russian nuclear industry officials have been accused of engaging in bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering to secure the deal in a scandal that has involved the State Department, the FBI, Department of Justice, the Clinton Foundation, and the Russian government.
Mir also played a key role in the Treasury Department’s refusal to investigate the UAE’s Gulftainer 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Port Canaveral, a critical military infrastructure facility for U.S. naval and space operations, the Center for Security Policy writes. Both decisions severely damaged United States national security.
Mir’s Islamist connections are troubling. The Islamic Society of North America is the largest Muslim advocacy group in the country, and a front group for Muslim Brotherhood. They are also unindicted co-conspirators in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation/HAMAS terrorism funding trial.
Further, Aimen Mir is the son of Kashmir-born physician Dr. Ghulam Nabi Mir, an ISNA Founders Committee member. Dr. Mir is also the president of the World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF), an Islamic platform Dr. Mir uses to aggressively advocate for Kashmir’s secession from India in order to join Pakistan. WKAF’s Secretary General “Dr.” Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai, is a convicted felon, also from Kashmir, who served as a Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI) operativeinside the United States.
In 2011, Fai was arrested by the FBI for covertly operating as a foreign agent while receiving millions from the ISI. He used some of that money to fund an elaborate lobbying operation pushing Kashmiri “independence” on unsuspecting U.S. officials who remained seemingly unaware that Pakistan was running the operation.
In 2013, Fai was granted early release from U.S. federal prison by the Justice Department.
Like his father’s ISI partner Fai, Aimen Mir appears to have been running his own operation at CFIUS.
Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During Mir’s five years in the staff chairperson’s seat, CFIUS approved Russia’s 2010 purchase of Uranium One, effectively handing Vladimir Putin control of 20 percent of America’s uranium. Also during Mir’s term, the Treasury Department refused to conduct two legally-required CFIUS investigations of Port Canaveral’s 2014 container terminal lease concession to the UAE’s Gulftainer.
That deal placed some very nefarious people inside the workings of a national security-sensitive US port.
The Treasury Department promoted Aimen Mir to Deputy Assistant Secretary for Investment Security in 2014 after the Clinton Foundation-connected Uranium One and Gulftainer Port Canaveral deals closed. Mir’s LinkedIn profile and post-Trump administration inauguration posts show he’s still at the Treasury Department, now as a career civil servant.
And now Mir is handing over America’s uranium resources to Vladimir Putin, and it was all arranged by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Everything goes as planned. ~ By
