The definition of Irony …
The investigation was designed to be a political witch hunt against Donald Trump and that he was colluding with the Russians. It turns out that it is Hillary Clinton and everyone else that is colluding with the Russians, except Trump.
FBI Confidential Informant in Obama-era Russian Nuclear Bribery OK’d to Testify Before Congress by DOJ
NOW IT GETS INTERESTING, THINK THERE ARE SOME FOLKS SQUIRMING IN THEIR SEATS RIGHT NOW?
It has been a long time in coming, the FBI informant with knowledge of Russian corruption and bribery in the Uranium One deal during the Obama administration has been given the okay to testify to Congress. According to Victoria Toensing, the attorney for the FBI informant, “the FBI has informed me that they are releasing my client from his [nondisclosure agreement] so that he can testify to Congress about his work uncovering the Russian nuclear bribery case and the efforts he witnessed by Moscow to gain influence with the Clinton’s in hopes of winning favorable uranium decisions from the Obama administration.” As reported at The Daily Caller, the Republican chairmen of two House committees announced Tuesday they’re launching a probe into the Uranium One deal and the Obama-era DOJ’s investigation of the deal.
DOJ allows FBI informant to testify to Congress
The Justice Department on Wednesday night released a former FBI informant from a confidentiality agreement, allowing him to testify before Congress about what he witnessed undercover about the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favorable decisions during the Obama administration.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed to The Hill a deal had been reached clearing the informant to talk to Congress for the first time, nearly eight years after he first went undercover for the FBI.
“As of tonight, the Department of Justice has authorized the informant to disclose to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as one member of each of their staffs, any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation,” she said.
The man’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, told The Hill on Wednesday night that the FBI sent her a formal letter saying it no longer had any reason to ask the informant to keep his work confidential, clearing the way for him to potentially testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Intelligence Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
The committees are keen to learn what the informant knows about any Russian efforts to curry favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton, to win Obama administration approval for Moscow’s purchase of large uranium assets in the United States or to secure billions in new uranium sales contracts with American utilities.

THIS IS AMAZING MUST SEE VIDEO … THE REAL RUSSIAN SCANDAL IS OBAMA, HILARY & BILL CLINTON.
The Uranium One deal is as crooked as it gets … Watch John Soloman from The Hill, President Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow and Sara Carter of Circa News blow the lid off this scandal. You wanted Watergate … its out there, the media just has to cover it. If this FBI informant is allowed to come forward, testify and provide what he knows, this will be damning.
Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group are now the subjects of a federal investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, three sources with knowledge of the matter told NBC News.
The probe of Podesta and his Democratic-leaning lobbying firm grew out of Mueller’s inquiry into the finances of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to the sources. As special counsel, Mueller has been tasked with investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Bill Clinton Asked for State Department Permission to Meet with Russian Nuclear Official During Obama Uranium Decision
I AM SURE BILL CLINTON JUST WANTED TO DISCUSS HIS GRANDCHILDREN WITH THE RUSSIANS …
We have a Russian collusion scandal, but it is not what you have been lead to believe … There is yet more eye opening reporting from The Hill with regards to the real Russian corruption, bribery and interference with regards to the Clinton’s and the Obama-Russian uranium deal. As Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State during this deal, $235 million was so generously donated to the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One, former president Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock. Hmm, yeah, no quid pro quo, collusion, bribery or corruption here. Move along. Are you serious? The federal government has spend over a year looking into some Russian-Trump collusion scandal with the willing liberal media reporting at nauseam only to find there is not there, there. But there is a Russian corruption and bribery scandal with evidence, it just happens to involve Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton. Imagine that. Too bad this does not fit the liberals, LEFT’s, Hate-Trumpers and MSM’s agenda, otherwise we would have a scandal that dwarfs Watergate actually reported.
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.
“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.
The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.
Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.
“Requests of this type were run by the State Department as a matter of course. This was yet another one of those instances. Ultimately, President Clinton did not meet with these people,” Angel Urena, the official spokesperson for the former president, told The Hill.
Aides to the ex-president, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation said Bill Clinton did not have any conversations about Rosatom or the Uranium One deal while in Russia, and that no one connected to the deal was involved in the trip.
Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records on AG Lynch and Bill Clinton’s Tarmac Meeting Last Year Prior to Election
WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THE FINE WORK OF THOSE AT JUDICIAL WATCH …
Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice for the records on Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton’s meeting on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport prior to the 2016 presidential election and during the time in which then candidate Hillary Clinton’s email server was supposedly being investigated by the FBI. The FOIA request asks for all records related to the meeting held between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016.
The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeking all records its has on the June 27, 2016 meeting between President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in her airplane, a meeting that occurred while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, a potential national security crime.
Yeah, no conflicts of interest here or gross appearance of impropriety here, move on.
Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice for records related to the meeting held between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00421)).
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to a June 29, 2016, FOIA request seeking:
- All records and/or transcripts of a meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
- All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
- All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
- All references to the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton contained in day planners, calendars and schedules in the Office of the Attorney General.
Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton on board a parked plane. The meeting occurred during the then-ongoing investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s email server, and only a few days before she was interview by the FBI. Lynch later admitted that the meeting with Bill Clinton “cast a cloud” over the Justice Department/FBI investigation. Not long afterward, FBI Director James Comey called Hillary Clinton’s actions “extremely careless” but did not recommend charges.
“The infamous tarmac meeting between President Clinton and AG Lynch is a vivid example of why many Americans believe the Obama administration’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton was rigged,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Now it will be up to Attorney General Sessions at the Trump Justice Department to finally shed some light on this subversion of justice.”
Judicial Watch requested the Justice Inspector General investigate the tarmac meeting.
