That is not a word to be used lightly but it is one certain intelligence officials, off the record, are alleged to have designated to the Uranium One deal that sent tens of millions of dollars into the coffers of the Clinton Foundation and might have also played a significant role in the multi-million dollar deals granted the Obamas after they left the White House.

FBI Refuses To Release Three-Dozen Secret Memos Involving Clintons, Russia And Obama
The FBI has refused to declassify 37 pages of materials related to the Uranium One deal, citing national security and the privacy issues, reports The Hill’s John Solomon. The documents are thought to contain information regarding then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s involvement, as well as the Obama administration’s knowledge of the controversial deal.
The existence of the documents became known after a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) release of related material contained an entry entitled “Uranium One Transaction.” The publicly available portion includes benign material, such as public letters from members of Congress who demanded information on the Uranium One approval.
Perhaps the FBI’s unexpected “release” — and I use that word loosely since they gave up no public information of importance — in the FOIA vault was a warning flare designed to remind America there might be evidence worth looking at.
One former U.S. official, who had access to the evidence shared with CFIUS during the Uranium One deal, said this to me: “There is definitely material that would be illuminating to the issues that have been raised. Somebody should fight to make it public.”
That somebody could be President Trump, who could add these 37 pages of now-secret documents to his declassification order he is considering in the Russia case.
…What did Obama know?
As Solomon notes, a giant question remains that may be solved by the release of the 37-pages of classified information; what did the Obama administration know about this?
Did the FBI notify then-President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other leaders on the CFIUS board about Rosatom’s dark deeds before the Uranium One sale was approved, or did the bureau drop the ball and fail to alert policymakers?
Neither outcome is particularly comforting. Either the United States, eyes wide open, approved giving uranium assets to a corrupt Russia, or the FBI failed to give the evidence of criminality to the policymakers before such a momentous decision. -The Hill
Campbell says that his FBI handlers assured him that Obama had been briefed by then-FBI Director Mueller on Rosatom’s criminal activities as part of the president’s daily briefing, however, “politics” was the reason that the sale was approved anyway.
