Aussie Alexander Downer from Spygate Involved in Sale of Australian Uranium to Same Russian Company that Purchased Uranium One
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Aussie Alexander Downer from Spygate fame not only signed a deal to provide $25 million to the Clinton Foundation but he was also involved in the sale of uranium to the same Russian state owned company that later purchased Uranium One.
Australian Alexander Downer has a storied past. In 2006 he signed an agreement to provide $25 million to the corrupt Clinton Foundation –
The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show.
Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.
Downer and former President Clinton jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February 2006 that spread out the grant money over four years for a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS patients in Asia.
Next Downer in 2007 signed an agreement for Australia to provide Australian uranium to Russian company Rosatom –
A co-operation agreement in the field of nuclear energy has been signed by Sergey Kiriyenko, the head of Russia’s Rosatom, and Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer that will see Australia supply uranium to Russia for processing and for use at its power plants.
Kiriyenko said that under the terms of the agreement Russia is ready to process 4,000 tonnes of Australian uranium a year saying: “The possible contracts we are negotiating now are about 4,000 tons of uranium a year, which is not far from 1,000,000,000 Australian dollars ($826 million).”
Kiriyenko added that the agreement will give Russia as much uranium as it wants, and will strongly enhance its uranium enrichment potential. The agreement may bring low-enriched uranium supply contracts with Japan worth $2 billion within 2008–2015, some $400 million with Europe, and $300 – $400 million with the United States, said Aleksey Grigoryev, acting director general of Russian uranium firm Techsnabexport (Tenex).
However, Grigoryev added: “We have made no natural uranium purchase contracts with Australia yet, we just have a framework agreement.”

The sale of Russian uranium to the Russians and the payment of money to the Clinton Foundation at around the same time sound familiar to Americans, because this also happened in the US in what many believe is the real Russian collusion scandal. The far left New York Times surprisingly was the first to report this story –
The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.
At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
The Clinton Foundation received $146 million shortly after the sale of Uranium One was approved by former President Obama and his failed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. This resulted in 20% of US uranium landing in Russian hands.
Soon after the Uranium One story was released Obama’s FBI in late 2015 and early 2016 ironically began an effort to align the Trump campaign with Russia. The far-left and their media then jumped on this narrative as the election transpired.
What kicked off the Trump-Russia farce was supposedly a drunken discussion between a young Trump volunteer (George Papadopoulos) and Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer. The young American repeated to Downer what he heard from an FBI spy that Russia held a copy of Hillary’s emails. When he told this to Downer, it was somehow relayed to the US.
Supposedly this is what started the official FBI Trump-Russia investigation. Now we find out that the Aussie involved in the scandal is also involved with the Clinton Foundation and uranium sales to Russia. Also, we now also know that the individuals that created or are part of the Mueller ‘witch hunt’, Rosenstein, Mueller and Wiessmann, were all part of the Uranium One scandal as well.
