On Monday, Independent Journal Review reported that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could consider a special counsel for Uranium One and alleged misconduct from the Clinton Foundation.
Uranium One — a deal in which Russia got the go-ahead to buy up uranium mines under the Obama administration — didn't get much coverage until President Donald Trump lifted the gag order on a secret FBI informant. But even as the informant's lawyer, Victoria Toensing, alleges her client can prove that both Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved, he remained anonymous. Until now.
The witness, identified by Reuters as William D. Campbell, worked as a lobbyist for a Russian firm.
Hillary Clinton alleges no wrongdoing with Uranium One, though.
“If they send a signal that we're going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust our justice system,” she said during an interview with Mother Jones.
Campbell, on the other hand, refuses to stay silent about the issue and plans to testify in front of Congress. But he doesn't just have his testimony, and he alleges to have evidence.
“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,” he told Reuters.
Toensing also revealed to Reuters that Campbell informed the government of how corrupt Rosatom was — the Russian firm involved in the Uranium One deal — but that his concerns went ignored.
