A lot of foreign interests, including foreign governments, benefit from US nuclear power and the subsidies which keep it afloat. Below are the rarely discussed uranium dealers (aka merchants of death). Some pretend to be American, but have foreign registered offices.

WHO IS AZARGA?
Contrary to what agents of disinformation want everyone to believe, it was Republican BGR Group (Barbour, Griffith, Rogers) and their lobbyist Rademaker, who pushed for CFIUS approval of Russia taking over Uranium One (via Canada). Ultimately, Obama could have blocked it. However, it was almost certainly more difficult to block since it was a Canadian company that was gradually bought up by the Russian govt. As there are no extradition agreements it will be impossible to force cleanup of Uranium One mines in the United States. Later Rademaker went to the Podesta group. BGR group has worked for other Russian and Saudi interests.
