The Trump administration’s Department of Justice has lifted a gag-order on the confidential FBI informant at the heart of the Uranium One deal; clearing the way for the individual to address Congressional investigators about Obama’s shady deal that handed 20% of America’s uranium over to Russia.
According to Fox News, the DOJ released a statement late Wednesday evening, authorizing the FBI informant to speak with the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence; including their staffers.
The Department of Justice requested “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market.”
“I’ve spoken with the confidential informant that helped the FBI uncover this bribery scheme,” said Rep. DeSantis, a member of the House Oversight Committee. “Clearly, it’s in the public’s interest that this individual be able to tell his story to Congress.”
Congress has opened at least three separate investigations over the controversial deal following a bombshell report that showed the FBI was aware of Russia’s infiltration of the American nuclear industry. The revelation raises serious questions over why the Obama administration –and Hillary Clinton- signed off on the agreement.
