FOIA Documents: FBI Scrambles To Preserve Records In Clinton ‘Uranium One’ Scandal
New FOIA documents are showing proof that the FBI was investigating the “Uranium One” scandal back in 2015. Now, internet sleuths are doing the job of the mainstream media, and have discovered Hillary Clinton’s IT guy trying to strip the former presidential candidate’s name from emails – and that isn’t all.
Months after the Peter Schweizer book Clinton Cash exposed the Russian collusion scheme, along with an article in the New York Times which laid out allegations of criminal malfeasance by the Clintons, their charitable foundation, and several associates, new FOIA documents are shedding light on the scandal being ignored by the mainstream media.
Twitter user Katica (@GOPPollAnalyst) – who notably discovered Hillary Clinton’s IT guy “Stonetear” asking Reddit users how to strip Clinton’s name from archived emails – discovered several Preservation and Records requests sent by an FBI special agent to various agencies involved in the approval of the Uranium One deal on August 28th, 2015, as first published by The Conservative Treehouse. Katica found the requests buried in an FBI file released via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
While the Clinton email investigation was launched in March of 2015 after it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal server and non-approved email accounts to conduct government business, reports from August, 2015 revealed that the FBI investigation was actually a criminal probe – though most assumed it was simply covering Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and not the content of her emails.
What Katica discovered is that weeks after the criminal probe began, the FBI sent notices to nearly every agency involved in the Uranium One approval process to preserve records. –iBankCoin
This is very important, and a big deal, considering the agencies who received the request included the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI James Clapper), The National Counter Terrorism Center, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Five days after the initial request, the same FBI agent sent another round of notifications to the same agencies, adding the National Security Agency (NSA) and the U.S. Secret Service (USSS) to the list. The next day, September 3rd, 2015, three more agencies were added to the preservation request. Those were: The CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Department of Defense (DOD)
At this point, every single member of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) which signed off on the Uranium One deal was served with a notice to preserve the records.
The sequence of events highlights a criminal probe starting in early August 2015, followed by notifications to the “Uranium One” CFIUS participants in late August 2015. If you consider the larger Clinton timeline; along with the FBI special agent requests from identified participants; and overlay the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as the leading entity surrounding the probe elements and the fact that the CFIUS participants were the recipients of the retention requests, it seems like too much to be coincidental, and to think this is unrelated to the Uranium One scandal and the more alarming implications.
While the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton was sold as a simple matter of mishandling of classified material, we now have proof that the FBI set their sights on the Uranium One scandal weeks after they began looking into Hillary Clinton’s emails. It is also known that five FBI field offices and the IRS have been investigating the Clinton Foundation on accusations of pay-to-play and other criminal acts.

No wonder the leftist mainstream media is more worried about what Donald Trump feeds koi fish than the major scandal unfolding right before our eyes.
