It has just been revealed that the Obama-era Justice Department repeatedly blocked an FBI informant from testifying to Congress about the bribery and extortion surrounding the corrupt Russia-Clinton nuclear deal.
In 2010, the Obama Administration approved a massive deal, giving the Russian government control over massive quantities of American uranium – over the serious objections of many. However, even before 2009, the FBI was investigating the parties involved in the deal, and found massive evidence of a coordinated of bribery, money laundering and extortion, to push for the passage of the corrupt deal – all surrounding the Clintons (Hillary was Secretary of State at the time).
Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Tuesday that she is working with the members of Congress to see if they can finally get the Trump Justice Department to let the informant speak to Congress about the corrupt nuclear deal.
“All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said. “And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, ‘This is wrong. What should I do about it?’”
She also said that she also possesses the memos that happen to recount how the Obama Justice Department threatened her client when he had attempted to file a lawsuit that could have possibly drawn attention to the Russian corruption during the 2016 presidential elections.
The informant, who was undercover, said, “a lot of bribery going on around the U.S.” but was forced by Obama’s FBI to sign a legal agreement preventing him from revealing what he knows to Congress.
When he had tried to bring some of the allegations to the light in his lawsuit last year, she said that, “the Obama Justice Department threatened him with loss of freedom. They said they would bring a criminal case against him.”
The emails that were obtained by a news source clearly show that a civil attorney working with the former undercover informant describes the pressure that the Justice Department exerted to keep the client from disclosing to a federal court what he knew last year.
“The government was taking a very harsh position that threatened both your reputation and liberty. As you will recall the gov’t made serious threats sufficient to cause you to withdraw your civil complaint,” she wrote.
Federal court records from years 2014 and 2015 show that a wide-ranging FBI probe into Russian nuclear industry corruption was helped by an unnamed American consultant who had worked for the Moscow-based nuclear energy giant Rosatom’s Tenex subsidiary on a multiyear campaign to grow Moscow’s uranium business within the United States.
These efforts included winning the U.S. approval of Rosatom’s controversial purchase of the Canada-based Uranium One’s American uranium assets, and securing new approvals to sell a new commercial uranium to the federally backed United States Enrichment Corporation and earining billions in new U.S. utility contracts for the Russian nuclear fuel.
Toensing said that her client could also testify that the FBI agents had made comments to him suggesting that the political pressure was exerted during the Justice Department probe of the Russia corruption case and that there was particular evidence that could have scuttled the approval of the Uranium One deal if it had become public.
“There was corruption going on and it was never brought forward. And in fact, the sale of the uranium went on despite the government knowing about all of this corruption. So he’s coming forward. He wants the right thing to be done, but he cannot do it unless he is released from the NDA,” she further added.
