An informant’s testimony is bad news for Hillary Clinton
If Hillary Clinton thought she could escape all her scandals unscathed, she was badly mistaken.
Her role in the Uranium One sale is once again front and center.
That’s because an informant’s testimony is now public and it is bad news for Hillary.
Douglas Campbell testified that the Russians plowed millions of dollars into the bank account of the Clinton Global Initiative through a lobbying firm with the goal of influencing then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.
“An FBI informant told three congressional committees in a written statement that Moscow routed millions to America with the expectation it would benefit Bill Clinton’s charitable efforts as then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed through a “reset” in U.S.-Russia relations, the Hill reported.
The informant, Douglas Campbell, said in the statement, which was obtained by the Hill, that Russian nuclear executives told him Moscow hired American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide because it would influence the Obama administration and specifically Hillary Clinton.
Campbell testified, according to the Hill, that 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.”
This occurred during a time where the Russians were engaging in a massive bribery scheme of energy executives.
Breitbart also reports Campbell questioned his FBI handlers as to why the U.S. was not taking the Russian efforts more seriously and they replied it was because of politics”:
“Campbell said in his testimony that Obama administration officials made decisions that benefitted the Russian nuclear industry, which was seeking to build a monopoly in the global uranium market to help President Vladimir Putin seek geopolitical advantage over the U.S.
He wrote that Russian nuclear executives “boasted” during vodka-fueled meetings monitored by the FBI about “how weak the U.S. government was in giving away uranium business and were confident that Russia would secure the strategic advantage it was seeking in the U.S. uranium market.”
Campbell said he asked his FBI handlers why the U.S. was not more aggressive.”
The Uranium One sale was unanimously recommended by all agencies that had a chance to review it.
But had Clinton’s State Department weighed in, they could have built the momentum necessary to stop this Russian effort to corner the uranium market.
Did they sit back because of donations flowing into the Clinton Global Initiative?
Critics believe that is a question for a special counsel to answer.
