An FBI informant directly involved with the controversial Uranium One deal has just laid bare the dirty details of Hillary Clinton’s collusion with the Russians.
Informant Douglas Campbell told congressional committees, in a 10-page statement, that Moscow “paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration,” reports Fox News.
Campbell gave his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
He was additionally interviewed for hours behind closed doors by committee staff.
Fox News obtained a copy of the statement where Campbell said Russian executives told him directly that they were hiring “APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.”
Campbell 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.”
“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.”
In a statement to Fox News, though, APCO called Campbell’s assertion “false and unfounded.”
“APCO Worldwide undertook client work on behalf of Tenex in 2010 and 2011. It undertook work for the Clinton Global Initiative from 2008-2016,” APCO told Fox News. “These projects were totally separate and unconnected in any way. All APCO’s actions on these two unconnected activities were publicly documented from the outset, legally proper and entirely ethical. Any assertion otherwise is false and unfounded.”
Uranium one is a mining company out of Canada and was sold to a Russian firm in 2010. The US government was involved because this sale gave Russians partial control over uranium supplies in the US.
Last year it was revealed by The Hill that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 “that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S., related to a subsidiary of the same Russian firm,” reports Fox News.
