WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former president Barack Obama was briefed not once, but twice on the details surrounding the Uranium One scandal and did nothing to stop it, says an FBI informant.
In a bombshell report published Thursday by The Gateway Pundit (https://tinyurl.com/y7s3ycem), an FBI informant is quoted as saying the 44th president knew of a plot by the Clinton Foundation to arrange nuclear sales to Russia for profit but did nothing to prevent it.
The informant, Douglas Campbell, told congressional investigators that Moscow paid millions of dollars to a U.S. lobbying firm which wound up benefitting both the Obama administration and the charity organization run by Bill and Hillary Clinton.
In a 10 page statement, Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative.”
“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement,” the statement continued.
Bill Clinton allegedly received a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian backed bank, according to published reports (according to published reports (https://tinyurl.com/y9x32rex) and the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars from insiders involved with the Uranium One deal.
Attorneys for Bill and Hillary Clinton say the payment Bill Clinton received for the speaking engagement had nothing to do with the Uranium One deal and that suggestions otherwise are simply attempts by Republicans to distract from the ongoing investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.
During an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity”, Campbell’s attorney Victoria Toensing said her client has exposed a “strategic plan” by Russian President Vladimir Putin to “take over the uranium industry.”
“[The Russians] were so confident that they told Mr. Campbell with the Clinton’s help, it was a shoo-in to get CFIUS [The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] approval,” Toensing said. “They were so confident in that that they even had him open up the new office because they were planning on the kind of business they were going to do as soon as CFIUS approved it.”
Democrats on Thursday denied Campbell’s claims, calling the allegations more “wild allegations” by Republicans.
“Republicans have been talking directly to this individual while refusing to grant Democratic members access, despite multiple requests,” House oversight and intelligence committee members Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a statement. “During this same time period, Republicans have been making wild and unsubstantiated allegations against Secretary Clinton on national television based on this individual’s information.”
Republican lawmakers have called for a formal investigation into the matter.
