An FBI informant who was made to sign an ‘illegal’ gag order has been cleared to testify before congress about a Russian uranium scandal involving bribery, kickbacks, the Clinton Foundation and the Obama Administration.

“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 Hill reports:
Multiple congressional committees have been seeking to interview the informant, whose name has not been released publicly, because he stayed undercover for nearly five years providing agents information on Russia’s aggressive efforts to grow its atomic energy business in America.
His work helped the Justice Department secure convictions against Russia’s top commercial nuclear executive in the United States, a Russian financier in New Jersey and the head of a U.S. uranium trucking company in what prosecutors said was a long-running racketeering scheme involving bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering.
As iBankCoin previously reported, The Hill published a bombshell report revealing the FBI’s mole gathered substantial evidence that “The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions.”
The FBI informant is represented by Attorney Victoria Toensing – a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Toensing said her client was made to sign an illegal – and therefore invalid NDA, and he should be free to share evidence gathered proving that Russian nuclear officials were involved in a racketeering scheme in 2009, before the Uranium One deal was approved.
Toensing told Fox’s Lou Dobbs she’s never heard of a criminal penalty for violating an NDA, stating “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.”
The Washington attorney said that her client’s direct knowledge of the pay-for-play scheme involving the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One is significant, adding “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made,” Toensing said on “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”
