Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov signed a protocol amending the 2000 Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement on April 13, 2010.

It enables new co-operation between the Department of Energy and Rosatom.

This happened during the April 2010 Nuclear Security Summit.

This is a photograph of people attending the April 2010 Nuclear Security Summit.
The "New START" agreement was signed on April 8, 2010. This document is available on the official United States Department of State website.

This was released on January 20, 2017, on the United States Department of State website.

During the nomination of Hillary Clinton to Secretary of State, it was explicitly mentioned that the START treaty was key to relations with Russia as per Senator Kerry.

Energy security was also given priority.

Senator Lugar literally met with Foreign Minister Lavrov and Mr. Kiriyenko of Rosatom in mid-December 2008, which he mentions during the nomination of Hillary Clinton to Secretary of State.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explicitly states that the U.S. Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement was to dispose of 34 metric tons of weapons-grade uranium in the US and Russia.

So why did Rosatom get control of Uranium One?

Here is the literal document itself, with Hillary Clinton's signature.

The United States Department of Energy had $17 million to co-operate with Rosatom on this endeavour. They would then need appropriated funds and the United States budgetary review to handle the rest.

And finance from other countries.

Kiryenko of Rosatom suggested that the US-Russian HEU Purchase Agreement will not continue after 2013.

This document is from the United Nations Institute For Disarmament Research.

It explicitly states that Rosatom, after 2013, would be interested in having 20-25% of the US SWU market and wanted assurances that US trade laws would not block the sales.

The HEU Agreement was actually handed over to the United States Enrichment Corporation to handle, also known as Centrus Energy Corp.

Here is a document from the Department of Defense.

Here is a reminder that Lisa Kountoupes (through Kountoupes Consulting) and Tony Podesta (through Podesta Group) lobbied for Uranium One during all of this.

opensecrets.org/lobby/clientsu…
Here is the lobbying report for 2012 for the Podesta Group to lobby for Uranium One. Brathwaite and Rademaker acted as lobbyists for international mining projects to U.S. Senate, National Park Services, National Security Council and DEPARTMENT OF STATE.

Stephen Rademaker, by the way, has been a part of the Department of State previously and was the first person to run the Bureau of Arms Control and the Bureau of Nonproliferation.

2001-2009.state.gov/r/pa/ei/biog/1…
The goal of the department? To prevent the spread of weapons of mass destruction, such as nuclear, radiological, biological and chemical weapons.

You know what is really interesting about recent events though?
Tony Podesta stepped down. Kimberley Fritts stepped down. Paul Brathwaite stepped down. Stephen Rademaker stepped down.
They're all connected to this lobbying deal.
THE ABSOLUTE STATE OF THE PODESTA GROUP RIGHT NOW.
END.
I'm back for an UPDATE on this RIDICULOUS ENTERPRISE.
The U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission was created on July 6, 2009.

obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-offi…
President Obama and President Medvedev would be the co-chairs of the Bilateral Presidential Commission.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov were the coordinators.

carnegieendowment.org/files/indispen…
The plan was to separate it between different departments to focus on all different aspects of the commission, as you would expect.

They did it before through the Gore-Chernomyrdin Commission between 1993 - 2000, for instance.

carnegieendowment.org/files/indispen…
There was a working group in this Bilaterial Presidential Commission set up on July 6, 2009 by Barack Obama.

It was nuclear energy and nuclear security.

But who led it?
The absolute STATE of the Obama Administration right now.
END #2.
