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.

10/24/17: Sean Hannity with John Soloman, Sara Carter & Atty. Victoria Toensing Discuss The Clinton-Obama-Uranium One Scandal … Mueller, Obama, They all Knew …
THIS IS A REAL BOMBSHELL TONIGHT!!!
WOW … The truth comes out that they FBI knew in 2009 and 2010 before the Uranium One dean went thru about the Russian bribery. It was reported last night by John Solomon of The Hill that then FBI Director Robert Mueller and President Barack Obama and other officials were briefed on this investigation in real time. The investigaton was the Russian bribery. They knew, they all knew and they signed the deal anyhow. The briefing made it into President Obama’s daily briefing papers. UNREAL.
Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, AG Eric Holder and President Obama all knew about this Russian bribery case and they all approved of the Uranium One deal. All this will they point the finger at Donald Trump and his so-called Russian collusion. Oh yeah, no Watergate cover up here., move on …
HILLARY CLINTON PROVED TO BE A LIAR ONCE AGAIN … MORE CLINTON COLLUSION!
THIS IS HUGE!!! Oh the irony, for months and months the Clinton campaign has blamed the Russians for losing the election. Now it appears that the Clinton campaign and the DNC who funded the Russian dossier … BOMBSHELL from the WAPO. Marc E. Elias is a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign as well as the DNC, and made the decision to work with Fusion GPS in April 2016. This after Elias had vigorously denied any such involvement. NY Times reporter, Maggie Haberman, also does not seem to be too amused with being lied to regarding the Trump dossier. Haberman tweeted, “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year.”
The question might be after all this time, why did the the Clinton campaign and DNC admit to funding Fusion GPS and the dossier? Could it be because Fusion GPS is having their bank records subpoenaed? Is this their way of hoping the subpoena goes away because God only knows what a treasure trove on info linking Fusion GPS and other Democrats and maybe even Republicans as well. Reports state that the Fusion GPS was initially funded by a Republican donor.
The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.
Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.
After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day
Oh what a tangled web they weave, when the Clinton’s practice to deceive. So the Mueller investigation was looking at Trump for collusion with the Russians, yet now we have evidence of collusion of Hillary, the Democrats and the Russians. A presidential campaign paid for International dirt (Russia) that went thru American intel agencies and was used by the FBI.
Twitter explodes on the news of Hillary Clinton and DNC involvement as many run like rats off the sinking ship. The DNC was quick to distance itself from the new found info that it was in fact the DNC and Hillary’s campaign who was finding the “dirty” dossier stating, “Chairman Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization.”
The Democratic National Committee and a lawyer for Hillary Clinton helped bankroll research that led to the now-infamous dossier on alleged ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian government operatives, sources familiar with the matter said Tuesday.
Marc Elias, a lawyer who represented the DNC and the Clinton campaign, retained a Washington firm, Fusion GPS, to carry out the research, the sources said. Services from the firm were retained from April 2016 until before the election in early November, a source said.
The involvement of the Clinton campaign and the DNC could lead to the first legal test for investigators on Capitol Hill. Fusion GPS has asked that a federal judge block a request for the House Intelligence Committee that would grant lawmakersaccess to Fusion GPS’ bank records. The firm argues that turning over the records would violate its constitutional rights.
Late last week, Trump speculated on Twitter that the dossier might have been funded by Democratic officials.
“Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?” Trump tweeted Thursday.
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.
It Looks Like Obama Did Spy on Donald Trump … Just as Trump Said They Did, But Just How Much Did Obama Weaponize the Intel Agencies Against His Enemies?
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS CORRECT, TRUMP WAS WIRE-TAPPED …
Award winning reporter Sharyl Attkisson is not surprised by news seemingly confirming President Trump’s allegation that the Obama administration spied on him and his campaign staff. Why, because that’s exactly what Obama did to her. And so the plot thickens. Remember when Donald Trump claimed that the Obama administration “wire tapped” hum? Remember when the Democrat liberal lap dog media came to the defense of Obama and tried to discount the stories of the so called spying on Trump Towers? Well, it now appears that Barack Obama did spy on Donald Trump. After so many media outlets bashing Trump for his accusations of being wire tapped, now the MSM is reporting the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. That would also mean, if Trump officials, or Donald Trump himself communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too. Imagine that? This is what happens when you have a MSM in bed with a political party who at all cost looks to conceal the truth and allows of regime to go rogue and flaunt the U.S. Constitution at ever turn, just because they like and agree with a liberal president’s agenda.
Hannity: Trump has been proven right about wiretapping
Many in the media are diving deeply into minutiae in order to discredit any notion that President Trump might have been onto something in March when he fired off a series of tweets claiming President Obama had “tapped” “wires” in Trump Tower just before the election.
According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too.
But we’re missing the bigger story.
If these reports are accurate, it means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates. And those are just the ones we know about.
Besides Manafort, the officials include former Trump advisers Carter Page and Michael Flynn. Last week, we discovered multiple Trump “transition officials” were “incidentally” captured during government surveillance of a foreign official. We know this because former Obama adviser Susan Rice reportedly admitted “unmasking,” or asking to know the identities of, the officials. Spying on U.S. citizens is considered so sensitive, their names are supposed to be hidden or “masked,” even inside the government, to protect their privacy.
In May, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates acknowledged they, too, reviewed communications of political figures, secretly collected under President Obama.
But just how much did Obama weaponize the Intel agencies against his enemies? Move over Richard Nixon, we have a true corrupt president and his name is Barrack Hussein “Millhous” Obama. Does anyone care that a president used Intel agencies to go after his enemies? The Soviet Union and East Germany would be so proud of your actions. Who sees the irony with the LEFT and their endless witch hunt of Trump and the connection with Russian hacking of the 2016 elections, when it was in fact the Obama administration who hacked and spied of U.S. citizens. Sorry, but after the Obama administration weaponized the IRS to attack Conservative Tea Party groups following the 2010 midterm elections, they get no pass or benefit of the doubt on this.
It’s difficult not to see patterns in the government’s behavior, unless you’re wearing blinders.
- The intelligence community secretly expanded its authority in 2011 so it can monitor innocent U.S. citizens like you and me for doing nothing more than mentioning a target’s name a single time.
- In January 2016, a top secret inspector general report found the NSA violated the very laws designed to prevent abuse.
- In 2016, Obama officials searched through intelligence on U.S. citizens a record 30,000 times, up from 9,500 in 2013.
- Two weeks before the election, at a secret hearing before the FISA court overseeing government surveillance, NSA officials confessed they’d violated privacy safeguards “with much greater frequency” than they’d admitted. The judge accused them of “institutional lack of candor” and said, “this is a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”
