The FBI informant at the heart of Hillary Clinton’s widening Uranium One scandal is opening-up about the Obama administration’s shady deal; saying senior Russian businessmen wired money to the US to buy influence with Hillary Clinton’s State Department, reports the Hill.
The bureau’s inside man levied his bombshell accusation this week; claiming Moscow “routed millions of dollars” to the United States with the “expectation it would be used” to help Clinton’s charity organization and buy influence with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In a letter to Congressional leaders, the informant claims that Russian executives “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 Clintons’ Global Initiative.”
APCO refers to APCO Worldwide, an American-based lobbying firm working on behalf of Russian authorities.
“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,” added the inside man.
The bombshell accusation raises new questions over how and why the Obama administration approved the controversial agreement; despite warnings from the FBI that Russian agents were seeking to infiltrate America’s nuclear industry.

URANIUM DONE: Top US Official Admits Obama Admin NOT TRUTHFUL On Shady Deal
The chair of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission stunned Congressional investigators on Wednesday, admitting her predecessor inside the Obama administration was less-than-truthful about the shady Uranium One deal; adding they didn’t “fully depict the complexities” of the agreement.
“I would note that, as your letter makes clear, the responses you have received have not fully depicted the complexity of this issue,” NRC chairwoman Kristine Svinicki told a Senate hearing.
Wyoming Senator John Barasso had raised his concerns over the nuclear agreement as far back as 2010, telling then-President Obama he believed the deal could significantly expand Russian influence into the US nuclear industry.
“I specifically raised concerns about future exports of U.S. uranium by Uranium One,” Barrasso said during the hearing. “I believe the Obama administration’s response to my letter was at best misleading.”
The Clinton-Obama brokered agreement was thrust back into the national spotlight in October, when the Hill published an explosive report that showed the FBI had uncovered Russian bribery schemes surrounding the deal prior to its approval.
