The question that has been asked dozens of times by well versed and prominent individuals both in and out of government is “what strategic advantage did we gain selling Russia 20% of our uranium reserve, a vital defense commodity?”
The answer apparently lies with Hillary Clinton being guaranteed millions of dollars funneled into the Clinton Foundation if she would help steer the deal as then Secretary of State.
Douglas Campbell, the FBI informant, outlined to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, a clandestine Moscow operation of bribery, money laundering and buying influence through a U.S. lobbying firm.
Late Wednesday Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, testifying for several hours behind closed doors.
In the statement, obtained by Fox News, Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide (a lobbying group), in an effort to influence both President Obama along with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Campbell outlined how the “play for pay” scheme worked stating to the committee members the 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.”
Campbell continued; “The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “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 US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”
APCO called Campbell’s assertion “false and unfounded.”
Congressional Republicans, however, have called for further investigation into Uranium One. Now it’s up to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look further into the potential bombshell allegations that may very well bring down a former president along with a former secretary of state.
