Former President of Maryland-Based Transportation Company Indicted on 11 Counts Related to Foreign Bribery, Fraud and Money Laundering Scheme

Executive Allegedly Paid Bribes to a Russian Official So His Company Could Win Highly Sensitive Nuclear Fuel Transportation Contracts

An indictment against a former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad, was unsealed today for his alleged role in a scheme that involved the bribery of an official at a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation.

Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Acting U.S. Attorney Stephen M. Schenning of the District of Maryland, Principal Deputy Inspector General April G. Stephenson of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General (DOE-OIG) and Assistant Director in Charge Andew W. Vale of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. Field Office made the announcement.

Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged in an 11-count indictment with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering. The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.

The case against Lambert is assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Theodore D. Chuang of the District of Maryland.

According to the indictment, beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at “Transportation Corporation A” to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX.

In order to effectuate and conceal the corrupt and fraudulent bribe payments, Lambert and others allegedly caused fake invoices to be prepared, purportedly from TENEX to Transportation Corporation A, that described services that were never provided, and then Lambert and others caused Transportation Corporation A to wire the corrupt payments for those purported services to shell companies in Latvia, Cyprus and Switzerland. Lambert and others also allegedly used code words like “lucky figures,” “LF,” “lucky numbers,” and “cake” to describe the payments in emails to the Russian official at his personal email account. The indictment also alleges that Lambert and others caused Transportation Corporation A to overbill TENEX by building the cost of the corrupt payments into their invoices, and TENEX thus overpaid for Transportation Corporation A’s services.

In June 2015, Lambert’s former co-president, Daren Condrey, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the FCPA and commit wire fraud, and Vadim Mikerin pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit money laundering involving violations of the FCPA. Mikerin is currently serving a sentence of 48 months in prison and Condrey is awaiting sentencing. The indictment includes allegations against Lambert based on his role in effectuating the criminal scheme with Condrey, Mikerin, and others.

The case is being investigated by DOE-OIG and the FBI. Assistant Chiefs Ephraim Wernick and Christopher J. Cestaro and Trial Attorney Derek J. Ettinger of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section, as well as Assistant U.S. Attorneys David I. Salem and Michael T. Packard of the District of Maryland, are prosecuting the case.

I believe this is related

to the FBI informant William Campbell

But unbeknownst to his colleagues, Campbell also was serving as an FBI informant gathering evidence that Fisk, Tenex executive Vadim Mikerin and several others were engaged in a racketeering scheme involving millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks, plus extortion and money laundering.

this article provides important background

Why Was Obama's Justice Department Silent On Criminal Activity By Russia's Nuclear Agency?

Oct 2017

An investigative piece in The Hill shows that the FBI knew, as of November 2009, of criminal activities by Tenex, the U.S. affiliate of Russia’s nuclear energy agency, Rosatom. At that time, Rosatom was authorized to ship spent fuel from Russian nuclear power plants to customers in the United States. Justice Department documents show that Tenex executives instructed a subcontracting U.S. trucking firm, in late November of 2009, to pad its prices in a no-bid process and to wire transfer the difference to offshore accounts. FBI records show a series of subsequent Tenex kickbacks and money laundering transactions. The Justice Department waited until December of 2015 – five years after the first evidence of criminal wrongdoing-- to offer a plea bargain and jail sentence for the Russian executive in charge of Tenex.

The important point: By late 2009 the FBI already had strong evidence of kickbacks and money laundering by Russian nuclear-energy entities operating in the United States in clear violation of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Almost one year later (October 2010), the Committee on Foreign Investment, on which both Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder served, approved the first of three stages (ending in 2013) of the sale of a majority stake in Uranium One, which owned massive uranium reserves in the U.S., to Russia’s Rosatom.

Although Clinton claimed that her vote had not been influenced by Uranium One or the Russians, former president Bill Clinton was paid a half million dollars for a single speech on June 29, 2010 by a Russian investment bank involved in the Rosatom deal. In addition, contributors associated with Uranium One donated $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

A less noted fact is that Uranium One was represented by the Podesta Group from 2011 to 2013 (managed by John Podesta’s brother), which cashiered $180,000 from its client. The Podesta Group had avoided registration as a foreign agent by claiming that a client, the Centre for Modern Ukraine, had no ties to a foreign government. The Centre for Modern Ukraine was likely funded by ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich from the billions he extracted before fleeing Ukraine.

The Obama Justice Department chose not to share this information with those government officials responsible for the October 2010 approval of the partial sale of Uranium One to Rosatom

Justice officials involved in the “silent” 2009 to 2015 investigation of Rosatom include Robert Mueller, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, and Andrew McCabe


BTW, the Paul Manafort indictments by Muellar's team involve money laundering involving the Ukraine and former Ukrainian President Yanukovich

Thanks to Obama, there is space available in Gitmo for new "guests".

The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

1. A thread on Obama & Clinton cover-ups, & corruption - with some uranium, a Chuang & some important questions that need answering. Intrigued? Read on, but warning: bombshells incoming!

2. As we now know, the DOJ have indicted a Mark Lambert on 11 counts related to his role in a bribery, money laundering & kickback scheme:

Exec charged with bribing Russian official in uranium deal - There’s an indictment in the FBI probe of the Uranium One scandal, in which the Obama administration cleared a business deal that gave a Russian company...

3. Background & reminder : from at least 2008, Robert Mueller's FBI were investigating Tenam, the US based subsidiary of Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin's (Putin's) energy company. The same Rosatom that purchased Uranium One.

4. Tenam was importing Russian uranium into the US. Between 2004-2014, the local manager, Mikerin, engaged with US companies Transport Logistics (TL) & NexGen Security in a racketeering, wire fraud, bribery & money laundering scheme.

5. When a TL insider, William Campbell, blew the whistle on what he was seeing, Mueller's FBI started an investigation that led to at least 4 indictments by Holder's DOJ.

6. Remember - the Tenam investigation is related to the Uranium One (U1) sale. Thats because the Tenam investigation was hidden from Congress & CFIUS, who approved the U1 sale in Oct 2010. If either had known about it, it's highly unlikely the U1 sale would have been approved.

7. And the more you analyze the Tenam investigation, the more it appears that the Obama administration and/or Clintons deliberately wanted it hidden. Consider:

8. William Campbell - the whistleblower - was GAGGED by Holder & Lynch. We have still to hear from Campbell, who apparently has damning evidence about Tenam involving the Clintons:

‘BRIEFCASES FULL OF MONEY’…Uranium One Undercover Whistleblower Drops Bombshell! [Video] - STB News
As reported earlier today, Reuters has named the whistleblower in Uranium One as William D. Campbell. According to John Solomon

9. Now consider this - none of the 4 indictments ever saw the light of day. Every one was either quietly settled under plea agreements, or dropped entirely, as follows:

10. Mikerin, the Tenam manager, was sentenced to 48 months under a plea deal, for crimes that had 20+ year sentences : -
United States of America v. Vadim Mikerin - Original Indictment 11/12/14 | Justice | Crime & Justice
United States of America v. Vadim Mikerin - Original Indictment 11/12/14 - Free download as PDF File (.pdf), Text File (.txt) or read online for free. Conspiracy to Interfere with Interstate Commerce…

11. Darren Condrey - plea agreement : Anti-Bribery, Conspiracy (18 U.S.C. 371) -…

Condrey Information | Conspiracy (Criminal) | Social Institutions
Condrey Information

12. Carol Condrey - under a plea agreement , her case was dropped :
Russian National And Three Others Charged In Kickback Scheme To Obtain Contracts To Transport Russian Nuclear Fuel To The U.S.

13. Rubizhevsky (NexGen) case settled with plea agreement. Astonishing given the charges: Conspiracy to Launder Money (18 U.S.C. § 371; 18 U.S.C. §§ 1956, 1957) ; Criminal Forfeiture (28 U.S.C. § 2461; 18 U.S.C. § 981) ; Criminal Forfeiture (18 U.S.C. § 982)

14. Notice something about these cases? None ever saw the light of day, where testimony would be made public. They were all 'disappeared'. Now with that in mind, consider the following bombshell facts:

15. ALL of these cases were prosecuted by the same duo, or combination thereof - Rod Rosenstein & Andrew Weissman. Yes, you read that correctly.

16. The FBI officer assigned to each case? Why, one Andrew McCabe. Yes - you also read that correctly. Your eyes are NOT deceiving you.

17. Oh - here's another interesting coincidence : they were ALL assigned to the same judge - one Judge Theodore Chuang, an Obama appointee. I hope you have not fallen off your chair yet, it gets worse:…

18. The SAME Judge Chuang attended Harvard at the same time as one Barack Obama - Chuang graduated law 1994, Obama 1991 & both were editors of the Harvard Law Review. They would have known each other extreme well.

19. That's the SAME Judge Theodore Chuang who refused Trump's EO travel ban in October 2017, see
Meet the federal judges who blocked Trump’s new travel ban
Judges Derrick Watson in Hawaii and Theodore Chuang in Maryland temporarily halted the executive order, which was to take effect Thursday.

And now consider this :
20. The SAME Judge Theodore Chuang has just been assigned to the Mark Lambert case. No - I am NOT kidding:

Former President of Maryland-Based Transportation Company Indicted on 11 Counts Related to Foreign Bribery, Fraud and Money Laundering Scheme

21. Maybe I'm wrong, but this looks a lot like an ongoing conspiracy to protect the Clinton crime family - and the Obama administration, via it's partisans at DOJ and also in the judiciary, remains fully implicated.

22. Other questions: Was the indictment of Mikerin and the others done so that ROSATOM/Russian Government / Putin wouldn't be upset? OR was it to put Clinton stooges in charge of the import AND export of US uranium following the U1 sale?

23. Was it because it was a lucrative deal they wanted their friends to take advantage of, OR to cover what was going on with uranium export here? We know that with the U1 sale concluded, US uranium WAS exported from U1 mines.

24. Did Eric Holder shut down Robert Mueller's investigation, or was he running Mueller the entire time with Andrew McCabe? Is he still doing so?

25. So many questions. Barack, can you help us out? Bill & Hillary, maybe you can help? How about you, Eric? Or how about you, Judge Chuang? After all, you were all involved. Why not help out? Now you have no power, you're fully exposed and the answers will come out anyway.

26. WE DESERVE ANSWERS. What you criminal have done - what's being uncovered daily - is a massive crimes against the USA.

'Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.' Lord Acton

True in 1887, true in 2018.
