The former federal informant who knew about political influence and the Uranium One deal and whose silence was demanded by the Loretta Lynch-run DOJ has been identified by Reuters as an ex-lobbyist for a Russian firm.
The former lobbyist, William D. Campbell, was interviewed by Reuters and admitted that he’s the secret witness in the investigation into the 2010 sale of a uranium company to Russia’s Rosatom. Mr.Campbell told Reuters that he will testify and provide documents to Congress about the Obama Administration’s 2010 approval of the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company with uranium mines in the United States, to Russia’s Rosatom.
This story started with a bombshell of a story The Hill published in mid-October that connected Russian bribery, collusion, the Clinton Foundation, Uranium and tons of cash, all before the 2010 Uranium One Deal outlined in Peter Schweizer’s book, Clinton Cash (which if you haven’t read yet…come on get with it).
That Hill revealed that in 2009 the year before Team Obama approved the Uranium One, the FBI compiled significant evidence that Putin’s nuclear industry officials “were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.”
The Hill reported that Feds had a mole inside Russia’s nuclear industry, now identified as William D. Campbell, who gathered, “extensive financial records, made secret recordings and intercepted emails.” Apparently, that evidence proves Putin’s people had bribed their way into an American uranium trucking firm, which of course is against the law (it’s called the foreign corrupt practices act which makes one wonder why Justin Bieber is still in the country).
According to the Hill’s sources, Mr. Campbell provided evidentiary support to The Feds that the Russian nuclear team “routed millions of dollars to the U.S., designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow” in the Uranium One deal.”
Since that report, Jeff Sessions’ DOJ has partially lifted the informant’s gag order, giving him permission to speak to members of Congress and their staff…
