    The reporter who really broke the story originally is reporting that the FBI has 37 secret pages of memos concerning the issue, but they are not going to declassify them for the public. OK. I get it. They want to keep others or themselves safe from scrutiny on the matter. I think it's pretty obvious that someone along the way screwed up in this deal. I mean, who ever thought it was a good idea to sell any nuclear material to Russia? They're not our friend and ally. It never made any sense. I must admit, though that I would like to see what those memos say, if anything, that might lend some clarity to the whole messed up issue.

    You do know that 100% of the uranium held by Uranium One is still in the US and cannot be exported (except for processing in Canada and subsequent reimportation into the US), right? And that 100% of the uranium they mine is used for US domestic commercial applications?

    Oh, I'm aware of that. Were you aware that they still pocket the proceeds of the sale of the materials? Dollars are just as good as nuclear material to them. The deal still enriches an enemy of ours.

    Russian-owned shares of Facebook generated almost 10 times as much profit in 2017 as the total profits of Uranium One. And that’s just one example of the hundreds of billions of dollars worth of US businesses owned by Russian interests. The Uranium One sale is a fake scandal.

    All the idiots who parrot the old "Hillary sold 20% of the US uranium to the Russian"

    Soon they’ll have all the Intel on Uranus.

    I’ll see myself out.
