Ever since the Uranium One scandal broke out, all the Democrats have asked one common question, “What proof does the FBI have?”. The FBI seems to have struck gold now after a person who is very well aware of the inside information which led to deal has now agreed to testify against Hillary Clinton.
The informant says he has valuable information about the bribery allegations against Hillary Clinton and a extortion scheme that was being run by the company. The FBI has been trying very hard to keep the name of the informant secret, but now that the case is heading fast, the informant himself told Reuters that he is the one who will be testifying against Clinton.
For those who are unfamiliar with the case, 20% of the United States Uranium refining rights in America were sold to a Russian company in the early 2000s. Right before the said sale, the Clinton Foundation received a cumulative donation of over $145 million from the buyers in the said deal. These donations started way back in 2008 and went on till 2013.
In fact, the former CEO of the company had gone on a trip with Bill Clinton to Kazakhstan, post which the company won all major uranium deals in the country. The said company is Uranium One, which was tarted in Canada and slowly sold off to a Russian state-owned company called Rosatom between 2009 to 2013, when the democrats were in power.
So who is the informant?
One William D. Campbell said that he would be testifying against the Obama Administration regarding the 2010 approval of the sale of Uranium One. Campbell was a confidential source for the FBI regarding the alleged bribery which took place in Maryland, and a subsequent kickback investigation about the same deal.
William Campbell who was then lobbying in favor of Russia for the deal was the head of the U.S. unit of Rosatom. Victoria Toensing, Campbell’s lawyer said that he was testifying because he had made it clear on several occasions to the Obama admin that the company was extremely corrupt, despite which Rusatom got the deal.
“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist and I have it,” Campbell said, making it clear that he is going drop some bombshells in court.
Meanwhile, President Trump has asked the Justice Department to lift the gag order on Campbell, so that he may testify against the Congressional investigators too. As per the orders of the Court, Campbell cannot currently reveal information regarding the deal to anyone outside of Court.
