Clintons Caught Hiding Contributions From Lobbyists Linked To Uranium-One Firm — Hannity & Dr. Gorka Weigh In
Documents obtained by John Solomon and Alison Spann of The Hill reveal APCO, the firm linked to TENEX, the Russian nuclear energy giant involved in Uranium One deal, contributed more to the Clinton Foundation between 2008 and 2016 than previously reported.
John Solomon and Alison Spann of The Hill report:
The site, created to detect conflicts of interest for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because of her family’s various charitable efforts, shows APCO gave between $25,000 and $50,000 over the last decade. […]
For instance, an internal CGI document prepared in fall 2011 lists APCO’s in-kind contribution at $275,000 for that year alone. And APCO’s annual report on its global charitable efforts boasted of a large jump in support for CGI in 2011. […]
The increase in the contributions came as APCO was paid $3 million in 2010 and 2011 to work for Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned nuclear company. Rosatom paid APCO to lobby the State Department and other federal agencies on behalf of its Tenex subsidiary, which sought to increase its commercial uranium sales in the United States. […]
APCO officials estimate their total cash support for CGI totaled $45,600 and their in-kind support to CGI exceeded $1 million since 2008. They also acknowledged that the firm’s pro-bono work increased significantly in 2011 while it worked for Tenex.
Fox News host Sean Hannity, who has been on the front lines reporting Uranium-One story and after, is loving John Solomon and Alison Spann’s latest find.
“Boom,” tweeted Hannity.
Former Deputy Assistant to President Trump, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, joked the accounted contributions were “Only a 10-fold reporting discrepancy.”
“#ClintonCrimeCartel,” indeed Dr. G!

Circa reporter Sara Carter previously reported on the background of APCO Worldwide Inc., the consulting firm with ties to the Clinton family that lobbied on behalf of Russian nuclear giant TENEX in relation to the Uranium One deal.
Roughly $3 million in payments from 2010 to 2011 were made to APCO Worldwide Inc., which is described on their website as the second largest lobbying firm in the United States.
Long-time Clinton supporter and APCO CEO, Margery Kraus signed the continuing contract on April, 12, 2010, with TENEX, as the Russian company’s top executive Russian businessman Vadim Milkerin was being investigated by the FBI for kickbacks and bribery involving American companies, according to the APCO TENEX contract and court documents obtained by Circa. TENEX is a subsidiary of the the Russian state owned nuclear giant Rosatom, according to financial filings of the company.

In a head-scratching statement, APCO Worldwide Inc. claims they had nothing to do with the Clinton-Uranium One scandal.
In a statement to Circa, APCO Worldwide Inc. said Thursday, “APCO was not involved on any aspect of Uranium One, or the CFIUS process relating to it. APCO Worldwide undertook activities on behalf of Tenex in 2010 and 2011 relating to civil nuclear cooperation, which APCO properly disclosed in detail at the time in public filings. Separately, since 2007-2008, APCO provided services in kind to the Clinton Global Initiative. APCO’s work for Tenex and APCO’s work for the Clinton Global Initiative were separate and unconnected, publicly documented from the outset, and fully consistent with all regulations and US law.”
