What happened to Hillary's supposed Russian uranium deal?

What happened to Hillary's supposed Russian uranium deal?

Trump and our republicans/conservatives falsely whine that Hillary gave 20% of our uranium to Russia.

Did Trump cancel the deal or is it now ok with the republicans/conservatives?

The current republican meme is: Russia is our friend.

11. Snopes says this claim about Hillary and Russian uranium is FALSE.

http://www.snopes.com/hillary-clinton-uranium-russia-deal/

A key fact ignored in criticisms of Clinton’s supposed involvement in the deal is that the uranium was not — nor could it be — exported, and remained under the control of U.S.-based subsidiaries of Uranium One, according to a statement by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission:

NRC’s review of the transfer of control request determined that the U.S. subsidiaries will
remain the licensees, will remain qualified to conduct the uranium recovery operations, and will continue to have the equipment, facilities, and procedures necessary to protect public health and safety and to minimize danger to life or property. The review also determined that the licensees will maintain adequate financial surety for eventual decommissioning of the sites. Neither Uranium One nor ARMZ holds an NRC export license, so no uranium produced at either facility may be exported.

SNIP

Of the $145 million allegedly contributed to the Clinton Foundation by Uranium One investors, the lion’s share — $131.3 million — came from a single donor, Frank Giustra, the company’s founder. But Giustra sold off his entire stake in the company in 2007, three years before the Russia deal and at least 18 months before Clinton became secretary of state.

SNIP

The timing of Telfer’s donations might be questionable if there was reason to believe that Hillary Clinton was instrumental in the approval of the deal with Russia, but all the evidence points to the contrary — that Clinton did not play a pivotal role, and, in fact, may not have played any role at all.

7. Yep... Is the 'deal' still in effect or did Trump cancel it?

I keep seeing conservatives saying Hillary approved it.

Have not seen them claim to cancel the deal.

9. As far as I know, Trump has done nothing about this deal so it still stands.

12. That's what I'm trying to find out.

I already know that it is a false claim that Hillary made the deal.

So many folks are so eager to 'prove' what we already know.

Can anyone show that republicans cancelled the 'deal' now that Trump loves Putin.

14. My guess is that it would have made the news had the deal been cancelled.

8. And you wonder why all the Knuckle Head Rethugs in Utah

 

want to give the Federal land to the state. Well,one of the largest Uranium Ore Deposits is on the South Border of the Bears Ears Monument as well just a few miles down the road in the Grand Canyon National Park as well next to the Visitor Center and viewing area.

Uranium One Corp. Yup,

Hillary had zip to do with this situation,just another thing that happens when we have to deal with Multi-National Corporations.
