Team Obama's stunning cover-up of Russian crimes

The report also indicates Russian officials routed millions of dollars to the U.S.to benefit the Clinton Foundation-then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was largely responsible for the Uranium One deal receiving USA regulatory approval.

The Obama administration approved the uranium deal in 2010 "giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium", The Hill reported on October 17.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday promised to review allegations that Barack Obama's administration knew about bribery allegations surrounding a Russian company's acquisition of 20 percent of USA uranium reserves.

Court records show that Toensing's client went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately after Russian officials asked him to engage in illegal activity in 2009, according to the report.

That same year, federal agents arrested Vadim Mikerin - a top executive at Tenex - for arranging more than $2m in payments in exchange for contracts from the company, according to the Department of Justice.

"Russians involved in the conspiracy were reportedly coordinating with high-level officials close to Vladimir Putin", he added.

We will hear your concerns. Some FBI agents merely stated they didn't know whether the congressional committee had ever been alerted to the Russian operatives' wrongdoing. "The Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise [are] breathtaking".
