    While the mainstream media has largely ignored it, the scandal surrounding Russian efforts to acquire 20% of America’s uranium reserves, a deal which was ultimately approved by the Obama administration, and more specifically the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) which included Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, is becoming more problematic for Democrats by the hour.

    As The Hill pointed out earlier this morning, the latest development in this sordid tale revolves around a man that the FBI used as an informant back in 2009 and beyond to build a case against a Russian perpetrator who ultimately admitted to bribery, extortion and money laundering. The informant, who is so far only known as “Confidential Source 1,” says that when he attempted to come forward last year with information that linked the Clinton Foundation directly to the scandal he was promptly silenced by the FBI and the Obama administration.

    Working as a confidential witness, the businessman made kickback payments to the Russians with the approval of his FBI handlers and gathered other evidence, the records show.

    Sources told The Hill the informant’s work was crucial to the government’s ability to crack a multimillion dollar racketeering scheme by Russian nuclear officials on U.S. soil that involved bribery, kickbacks, money laundering and extortion. In the end, the main Russian executive sent to the U.S. to expand Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear business, an executive of an American trucking firm and a Russian financier from New Jersey pled guilty to various crimes in a case that started in 2009 and ended in late 2015.

    Toensing added her client has had contact from multiple congressional committees seeking information about what he witnessed inside the Russian nuclear industry and has been unable to provide that information because of the NDA.

    “He can’t disclose anything that he came upon in the course of his work,” she said.

    The information the client possesses includes specific allegations that Russian executives made to him about how they facilitated the Obama administration’s 2010 approval of the Uranium One deal and sent millions of dollars in Russian nuclear funds to the U.S. to an entity assisting Bill Clinton’s foundation. At the time, Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of State on the government panel that approved the deal, the lawyer said.

    It has been previously reported that Bill Clinton accepted $500,000 in Russian speaking fees in 2010 and collected millions more in donations for his foundation from parties with a stake in the Uranium One deal, transactions that both the Clintons and the Obama administration denied had any influence on the approval.

    In the midst of the new discoveries revealed yesterday about the Uranium One case (see: FBI Uncovered Russian Bribery Plot Before Obama Approved Uranium One Deal, Netting Clintons Millions), “Confidential Source 1” has once again hired an attorney, Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee, to get his story out.

    Sitting down with The Hill earlier, Toensing said that the last time her client tried to speak out “both his reputation and liberty” were “threatened” by the Obama administration in a effort to force his silence. 

    “All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said in an interview Tuesday. “And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, ‘This is wrong. What should I do about it?’”

    Toensing said she also possesses memos that recount how the Justice Department last year threatened her client when he attempted to file a lawsuit that could have drawn attention to the Russian corruption during the 2016 presidential race as well as helped him recover some of the money Russians stole from him through kickbacks during the FBI probe.

    The undercover client witnessed “a lot of bribery going on around the U.S.” but was asked by the FBI to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that prevents him from revealing what he knows to Congress, Toensing explained.

    When he tried to bring some of the allegations to light in the lawsuit last year, “the Obama Justice Department threatened him with loss of freedom. They said they would bring a criminal case against him for violating an NDA,” she added.

    Emails obtained by The Hill show that a civil attorney working with the former undercover witness described the pressure the Justice Department exerted to keep the client from disclosing to a federal court what he knew last summer.

    “The government was taking a very harsh position that threatened both your reputation and liberty,” the civil lawyer wrote in one email. In another, she added, “As you will recall the gov’t made serious threats sufficient to cause you to withdraw your civil complaint.”

    As we pointed out last summer when Peter Schweizer first released his feature documentary Clinton Cash, the Uranium One deal at the center of this scandal is believed to have netted the Clintons and their Clinton Foundation millions of dollars in donations and ‘speaking fees’ from Uranium One shareholders and other Russian entities.

    Russian Purchase of US Uranium Assets in Return for $145mm in Contributions to the Clinton Foundation – Bill and Hillary Clinton assisted a Canadian financier, Frank Giustra, and his company, Uranium One, in the acquisition of uranium mining concessions in Kazakhstan and the United States.  Subsequently, the Russian government sought to purchase Uranium One but required approval from the Obama administration given the strategic importance of the uranium assets. In the run-up to the approval of the deal by the State Department, nine shareholders of Uranium One just happened to make $145mm in donations to the Clinton Foundation. Moreover, the New Yorker confirmed that Bill Clinton received $500,000 in speaking fees from a Russian investment bank, with ties to the Kremlin, around the same time. Needless to say, the State Department approved the deal giving Russia ownership of 20% of U.S. uranium assets.

    Meanwhile, the ‘journalists’ over at CNN are still trying to get to the bottom of exactly who spent the $100,000 on Facebook ads…

        If you carry concealed, carry spare mags or carry two guns. A friend was almost car jacked in East Chicago, Indiana the other day. 2 car loads of natures best tried to box him in and jack his pick up truck for the tools inside. He used evasive driving skills to elude them. They did try to chase him for awhile, but gave up. He called 911 during the incident. When East Chicago’s finest finally showed up they didn’t even make a police report. They commented that this stuff goes on all the time. Nothing stolen, no report. The quality of police work you get is hit or miss.

          This country has become a real cesspool anymore. Between the blacks and Muslims and other fine citizens, there is nothing at all to be concerned with here folks. You all better get your asses armed, carry concealed, have plenty of ammo and plenty of training and target practice. This is no joke anymore, none at all.

          • The Deplorable Braveheart

            CC, that is sad but true. With all of the ‘minorities’ out there we’re forced into arming ourselves.

          • ricarrdo

            Lock and load. Keeping the powder dry.

        • The Deplorable Braveheart

          Him, I glad to hear your friend survived but he seriously needs to be carrying after this affair. If that had been me I also first would try to get away but if I couldn’t I would draw down on them. I refuse to get carjacked. I refuse to be a victim. And I DON’T call 911 for anything.

        • KRV

          Obamaand his cronies have to tried, convicted and executed for their crimes.

      2. Concerned-Citizen!

        Wow! WTF is going on? That Crooked Killary and Slick Willy are 2 of the most crooked and corrupt shit birds you will ever come across. What has happened to this country?? Those 2 deserve to HANG!

        • buttcrackofdoom

          yes, and you DO remember killary’s blatant THREAT during the debates, when trump said “you should go to jail”….and her blatant retort?….”if I go to jail, there will be a LOT more going WITH me”….she’s got guts, i will give her that, to threaten like that on LIVE national TV.

          • Michigan Wolverine

            To that I say fine
            Hang em all
            , problem solved … her first !

          • The Deplorable Braveheart

            BCOD, IF the Clintons were to be jailed, the vast majority of everyone in the Beltway WOULD go to jail with them. That would go a long way toward ‘draining the swamp’. I’d LOVE to see it happen but I don’t believe it will.

            • buttcrackofdoom

              SHE better end up there….she BETTER! if SHE don’t deserve to go to jail, then WHO DOES?

        • JustMe

          The entire truth about the Clintons, and their friends could undeniably come out for the world to see, and Clinton supporters would not care one bit.

          This, like everything else the Clintons have done, will be swept away, and nothing will happen.

          Trump had the chance to do something about the Clintons, and he looked the other way…

        Mexican billionaire Hugo Salinas Price, one of the richest men in the world, on ethics:

        My father-in-law, Don Guillermo Pliego y Pliego, once told me of an experience he had: “I saw a truck in downtown Monterrey (Mexico) on its way to the refinery at American Smelting and Refining Company, loaded with 0.720 silver Pesos; the truck had a mishap and dumped its silver load into the street; hundreds of Pesos rolled down the street, but the people passing by gathered every one of them and returned them to the truck.”

        *** “Can we imagine how people would react, in a similar situation, today?”****

        Hmmm…. any guesses on what has changed? My guess is, as CS Lewis wrote, “We make men (and now boys) without chests (hearts, morals) and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate, then bid the geldings be fruitful.” Or, to put it cinematically, after we have told people “everything is relative,” it is as Inspector Renaud told Rick in Casablanca, “I’m shocked – SHOCKED! – to find gambling in this establishment.”

      4. Fritz

        Even apart from this scandal, why on Earth would they ever even consider selling uranium of all things to the Russians?

        • Mr. West

          Its not that it was Uranium. Its that she had influence over something, someone else wanted, and she seized upon that moment to enrich herself. She would sell her daughter for the right price, too bad for Hillary, but good for Chelsea, that she is not that desirable.

          • ricarrdo

            Chelsea looks too much like Web Hubbel.

      5. The Deplorable Braveheart

        One question I have is would this NDA still be valid with a different administration? Is there any way to override it?

      6. Nailbanger

        These people are corrupt beyond belief,
        This seems to be a common thread with most polititians and democrats overall, do as i say not as i do,,,
        This country is in trouble, its coming, i can feel it in my bones,
        Just as the socialist government in spain is trying to squash Catalonia, the democrats and establishment rinos are in the beginning phase of trying to squash independent thought and action and speech here in the USA,
        I dont care for my safety, i will stand when the time comes and it is coming

      7. old harry

        My question is: how much of this uranium ended up in North Korea?

      8. aljamo

        Get that nasty witch Wassserman-Shultz too.

      9. chickenpatti13

        $5 says he won’t live long enough to tell his tale

      10. Robert

        Opppps…. I see another body in the Clinton’s Murder Inc!

      11. KRV

        Obama and his crew are nothing less than Seditious criminals. Obama and his crew needs to be executed for their cr8mes.
