William D. Campbell, the FBI informant on the Uranium One scandal broke his silence in an explosive testimony to Congress in February.
In his first on-camera interview, Campbell tells John Solomon of The Hill he was interviewed for about five hours in December by FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., who were investigating whether donations to the Clinton Foundation were used to influence U.S. nuclear policy during the Obama administration.

Partial transcript via The Hill:
“They were looking into the Clintons, and the information that I provided to them about the Clintons and about what was said and confirmed by Russian leadership seemed to be very important to them,” Campbell said, appearing in shadow during the interview to protect his identity.
“I am not a Republican. I am not a Democrat. I’m not an independent. I am a damn American,” he said. “I’d like to remind those Democratic staff members who wrote that interview summary that none of ’em have ever worked undercover as a confidential informant … and put themselves in clear and present danger with Russian criminals who are breaking U.S. law.”
“I can remember them running on an American disabilities [platform] wheeling people in wheelchairs and people that were having issues like I was having in and talking about how sacred that was to the Democratic Party. And hell, they’re mocking me?” he said. “It’s not right.”
Douglas Campbell also dismissed the idea he lacks credibility saying the FBI asked him for information and paid him a $51,000 reward in 2016.
“I was embraced and told what a good job I had done,” he said.
