The FBI informant who went undercover to look into Hillary Clinton’s role in an Obama administration-era uranium company was identified yesterday in an exclusive from Reuters:
William Campbell, a Russian lobbyist, is the informant, according to Reuters. He will be testifying before a congressional committee about the 2010 sale of Uranium One, where a Russian-backed company bought a uranium firm with mines in the U.S. Campbell gave information to the FBI about what he saw while undercover as an informant.
“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” – William Campbell
Congressional committees have previously tried to interview Campbell, as he was undercover for roughly five years, working to get information on Russia’s efforts to grow its atomic energy business in the U.S.
Department of Justice spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told The Hill that a deal was reached in late October, clearing the informant to talk to Congress for the first time — almost eight years after he first went undercover.
Two House chairmen also announced a probe in late October which is digging into new reports about Russian efforts to influence the Uranium One nuclear purchase that gave Russia control of roughly 20 percent of America’s uranium.
When Clinton served as secretary of state, Russia routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and former President Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees as part of Russian efforts to influence the U.S. government to approve the deal, The Hill reported.

LAWYER FOR FBI INFORMANT: My Client Knows What Russians Were Saying During Bribery of Clintons [VIDEO]
Campbell’s attorney, Victoria Toensing, said on Fox Business that former attorneys general under the Obama administration are the reason her client hasn’t been able to “tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”
The lawyer for the FBI informant under a gag order that prevents him from going before Congress spoke out about what’s to come with the Clinton/Russia Uranium story:
Fox Business reported:
An informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is under a gag order that prevents him from testifying before the United States Congress that Russian nuclear officials were involved in fraudulent dealings in 2009 before the Uranium One deal was approved.
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch blocked the informant from testifying last year and threatened criminal action against him if he were to do so.
In an interview with FOX Business’ Lou Dobbs, Victoria Toensing, the attorney representing the FBI informant, said she has never heard of a criminal penalty for breaching a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
“If it does and it is unconstitutional and it’s invalid, if it prohibits my client from giving information to the legislature, the executive cannot say to people, ‘Hey, you can’t give information to another body of the government,’” Toensing said.
The Republican leadership was blocking the investigation into both Benghazi and the Russia uranium scandal involving Clinton.
The NDA (gag order) is unconstitutional and Toensing says this type of gag order has a criminal penalty. She says she’s never heard of this type of gag order.
Victoria Toensing is one of the best lawyers in DC and will get to the bottom of this one way or another. The plot thickens on this one…
