Fitton: Indictment in Md. Links With Uranium One Controversy

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

A federal indictment on the former head of a Maryland transit firm has implications in the Uranium One controversy involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Monday.

The company's owner, Mark Lambert, 54, is facing charges of money laundering, foreign bribery, and wire fraud, according to an indictments opened last Friday, Reuters reported. His charges involve allegedly bribing a Russian official hopes of winning contracts to ship uranium to the United States.

"The reason they were involved in the uranium industry here in the United States and actually had expanded involvement was because of the Uranium One-related decision-making made by the Obama administration," Fitton told Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

In December, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he encouraged the Department of Justice to reopen the Uranium One probe, but Fitton said it cannot be said for sure the added scrutiny led to the indictment.

"I don't think it's coincidental a few months after it's reported that the Justice Department under Obama was hiding this in plain sight from the American people and certainly hiding key information from Congress," he said.

Meanwhile, Fitton continued, "there is tens of millions of dollars that were laundered by Russians into the Clinton operation that needs to be thoroughly investigated in order for the American people to be rest assured that our uranium industry hasn't been compromised."
