DOJ Authorizes Agent to Testify on Uranium One Scandal

Another shoe fell today in the ongoing Uranium One scandal under Hillary.

The Department of Justice has released an undercover FBI agent to testify to Congress in its investigation of the pay-to-play deal between Hillary Clinton and Russia.

The unnamed agent — who was previously barred by the Obama administration from testifying — was involved in monitoring Russian activity while Hillary served as Secretary of State.

The agent’s knowledge of the interaction is reportedly extensive.

So here’s the bottom line: the Russians paid the Clinton Foundation millions in addition to the hundreds of thousands in speaking fees paid directly to Bill Clinton in exchange for access to US uranium.

Then the Obama administration covered it up.

Not to be outdone, Hillary’s campaign then paid a firm to create a ‘Russian dossier’ on Trump as political cover.

It’s the biggest can of worms to open since Teapot Dome.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

The Department of Justice (DOJ) released a former FBI informant from a confidentiality agreement, allowing him to testify before Congress about what he saw while undercover during a former President Barack Obama-era deal where a Russian-backed company bought a uranium firm with mines in the U.S.

Congressional committees have previously tried to interview the informant, whose name has yet to be released, due to the fact he was undercover for around five years, working to get information on Russia’s efforts to grow its atomic energy business in the U.S.

DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told The Hill a deal was reached, clearing the informant to talk to Congress for the first time — almost eight years after he first went undercover for the FBI.

“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,” Flores said.

On Tuesday morning, two House chairmen announced a probe which will dig 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.

The Republican chairmen of two House committees announced Tuesday they’re launching a probe into the Uranium One deal and the Obama-era DOJ’s investigation of the deal.
