While the buzz around online news sites continues to focus of attempts by the US Semocrats to convince the world their fantasies about the involvement of Russia in rigging the 2016 election for Trump consitute actual evidence, more serious concerns over Russian penetration into the political system in the 2015-16 election cycle via the Clinton campaign and the totally corrupt Clinton Foundation continue to simmeer on the back burner ignored by mainstream media. Allegations of corrupt deals betwen the Clintons and certain Russian oligarchs for the transfer of US uranium assets in exchange for worthless stocks and bonds to American taxpayers and multi - million dollar 'donations' to the Clinton Foundationare gaining momentum.
The Hill’s John Solomon reports that an FBI informant connected to the Uranium One controversy has testified to three congressional committees that Moscow had taken special aim at political figures in its attempt to corner the global market on nuclear fuel. That penetration involved the Clinton Foundation, William Douglas Campbell insists, and the Obama administration knew it.
The FBI informant,Douglas Campbell, said in the statement obtained by The Hill that he was told by Russian nuclear executives that Moscow had hired the American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide specifically because it was in position to influence the Obama administration, and more specifically Hillary Clinton. Campbell told three congressional committees in a written statement that Moscow routed millions of dollars to America with the expectation it would be used to benefit Bill Clinton’s charitable efforts while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quarterbacked a “reset” in US-Russian relations.
The informant also said Russian nuclear officials 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 Clinton’s Global Initiative, he added in the testimony.
The contract stipulated four payments of $750,000 spread over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to ensure the Obama administration approved everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.
As Solomon reported in October, the FBI first discovered a corrupt Russian operation to gain control of US energy assets in 2009. Campbell became an informant for the FBI, pushing bribes with their knowledge, often with his own money to help obtain indictments. His efforts helped get lower-level indictments, but then events took an unexpected turn according to Campbell . Rather than shutting down the Russian efforts to gain control of US uranium producers, the Obama administration inexplicably approved the deals.
