The allegations are between Dec. 21st, 2011 and Oct. 1st, 2014.
The Uranium One deal started in 1993.
Source is former Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who wrote about it here:
At the time, Lambert was CEO of Transport Logistics.
The company had a monopoly on transporting uranium contained in 45 Russian nuclear warheads.
Lambert is the last and final case in the Uranium One fiasco.
Prosecutors can, however, charge other co-conspirators under the same case.
The other three cases resulted in two guilty pleas and jail sentences.
Judge Charles Day ruled in 2014 that prosecutors had no reason to arrest Mark Lambert.

Prosecutors admitted yesterday that the Lambert case has nothing to do with:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation
Hillary Clinton, in her former role as Secretary of State
the sale of 20 per cent of U.S. uranium to a Russian company
President Donald J. Trump
alleged Russian interference with U.S. elections
Committee on Foreign Investment (CFIUS) who approved sale of uranium to Russia
Prosecutors filed 20 pages of items it would like to exclude as evidence.
It starts at Page 20 in this link:
Prosecutors also said they wanted to exclude evidence presented in other Uranium One cases.
All four Uranium One cases were assigned to Judge Theodore Chuang.
Rod Rosenstein headed the prosecution team.
Former FBI Director and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller hired:
Brett Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court Judge
. . . to investigate charges of impeachment against President Bill Clinton.
Starr’s team found nothing.

The other prosecutors are unidentified.
Hillary Clinton was never charged in her role in Uranium One.
Judge Tonya Chutkan covered up a Russian spy’s role as a money launderer in the Uranium One case.
It involved Mariia Butina.
She was convicted of being a Russian spy.
Butina will be released from prison on Oct. 25th.
She will return to Russia.
Chutkan’s final court order approved the destruction of evidence in the case.
