The alleged Russian bribery scheme involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and Uranium One is coming to a head after an 11-count indictment was handed out on Friday that connects the players to a Maryland-based international trucking company.
Trending on Twitter today is the hashtag #11 Counts of Bribery and Fraud, which is in reference to the news that broke on Friday night and went largely unreported in mainstream news outlets regarding an alleged scheme by an American to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX).
Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, is the 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. The Dept. of Justice announced in a press release on Friday that Lambert is now facing an 11-count indictment for his alleged role in a scheme that involved the bribery of an official at a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation.
U.S. authorities believe that from at least 2009 to October 2014, Mark Lambert (pictured below) and other company executives, including Daren Condrey, conspired to bribe Vadim Mikerin, an official at the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation subsidiary (TENEX), in order to secure contracts for transporting nuclear fuel. TENEX is the commercial sales arm for Russia’s Rosatom, which took full control of Uranium One in 2013.
Daren Condrey plead guilty in June 2015 to conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and wire fraud. (Scroll down to see the full press release from the DOJ.)
