HANNITY EXCLUSIVE: Newly Unearthed Documents Linking Russia To Clinton-Uranium One Scandal Validates FBI Informant
Fox News host Sean Hannity and Circa News reporter Sara A. Carter have teamed up to report that “the treasure trove of documents,” linking Russia to the Clinton-Uranium One deal validates statements by FBI informant William D. Campbell Jr.
Recently, Campbell came forward as the secret FBI informant in the Uranium-One deal. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his “concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,” reports Reuters.
“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,” Campbell told Reuters.
Recent pushback in Congressional testimony by Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as unnamed Justice Department officials in several news articles, stating that the case involving a highly placed FBI confidential informant in the Russian nuclear industry was not connected to the sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One in 2010, does not coincide with the trove of documents, emails and memoranda obtained by this reporter that prove otherwise.
Moreover, an American energy consultant, whose now an official with the Department of Energy office of Nuclear Energy, produced a memorandum regarding the acquisition of Uranium One and other legislative matters for one of the main Russian co-conspirators that was then under an FBI clandestine investigation.
Within the over 5,000 documents and briefs given to the FBI and DOJ by the informant, there were detailed plans of Russia’s state controlled nuclear arm Rosatom, and its subsidiaries, to penetrate America’s vast energy market and its efforts to gain approval of the United States government for the eventual purchase of Uranium One. At the time Uranium One controlled roughly 20 percent of American uranium mining capacity.
In fact, the evidence obtained by the Department of Justice and FBI, starting as early as 2008, paint a much different picture than that of recent reports regarding the confidential informant, William D. Campbell Jr., and his role. According to the documents, Campbell gained insight into Russia’s strategic plans to gain global dominance in the uranium industry and to build a closer relationship with Obama administration officials.
According to Hannity and Carter, the FBI informant begun working with federal law enforcement in 2006 and alerted them to corruption by the Russians linked to the Clinton-Uranium One deal in 2009. Over the next four years, Campbell would provide the Department of Justice with “insurmountable evidence of corruption, kickbacks and money laundering,” by Russian officials.
“During Campbell’s time working as a confidential informant, [Campbell] was required by the Russians to launder large sums of money to financial institutions in Cyprus, Latvia and Seychelles,” say Hannity and Carter.
Investigators had garnered mass amounts of evidence of corruption by the time the Obama administration approved the Clinton-Uranium One deal.
““Beginning in 2008, Mr. Campbell provided the U.S. government ample documented evidence of corruption in the Russian nuclear industry. Nevertheless, in October 2010 the Obama Administration authorized that corrupt entity to purchase a company that controlled 20% of the U.S. uranium supply,” Campbell’s lawyer Victoria Toensing told Hannity and Carter.
The question remains, why was the deal approved?
