There’s been a new development in the Russia scandal. No, not the Trump collusion case. Which may turn in to the Trump obstruction of justice case. Which may wind up not even being that. What we’re talking about here is Uranium One (see FBI Informant in Obama/Russian Uranium Scandal Cleared to Testify and Trump Fires Back Over Clinton and Obama Uranium Deal).
Well, the informant has dropped his dime.
An FBI informant connected to the Uranium One controversy told three congressional committees in written testimony that Moscow routed millions of dollars to America with the expectation it would be used to benefit Bill Clinton’s charitable efforts while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quarterbacked a “reset” in US-Russian relations.
The informant, Douglas Campbell, said in the testimony obtained by The Hill that he was told by Russian nuclear executives that Moscow had hired the American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide specifically because it was in position to influence the Obama administration, and more specifically Hillary Clinton.
Campbell said 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,” he added in the testimony.
“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement. “
Hopefully Campbell has himself some good security. They say that snitches get stitches. Though people who cross the Clintons have a habit of getting rather dead.
So let’s see where this goes. As of this writing, Donald Trump isn’t awake and hasn’t started live tweeting Fox and Friends yet in his pajamas. The Hillary and Obama fanbois haven’t started calling this all racist sexism. Or even sexist racism. But from my view in the cheap seats, this reads pretty shady. At least as shady as some of the Trump/Russia/Election 2016 public details. If not more so, because in the later case there’s yet to be a believable connect between Russia and the Donald Trump.
The Uranium One testimony at least draws a clear connection to the Obama Administration and the Clinton Foundation. How ironic that all this time the left has been desperately searching for a Russia scandal, yet the only Russia scandal there seems to be surrounds their precious Hillary and Barackness.
