The Uranium One story just keeps developing and expanding, and now, it just hit the roof. As you re well aware, the deal was revolved around Obama, who decided to strike a deal with Canadian Uranium One company, allowing Russia total control over some of America’s uranium supply.
Republicans have pushed for actions and sanctions for both Obama and Hillary Clinton, but Democrats remained adamant the story is just a mist.
The story first hit the news after an FBI informant spoke up on the matter. Hillary Clinton probably felt the nerve-wracking uncertainty of the anonymous testimony, which is something to be scared off, to be quite frank.
On Wednesday, AG Jeff Sessions and his team got the DOJ’s go-ahead to go public with the informant’s name. Here is what the DOJ spokesman’s statement on the matter was:
[…] any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation.
According to Reuters, the informant’s name is William D. Campbell. On Thursday, Campbell confirmed the information on his own. He worked as an informant for five years, trying to get one step closer to Russia’s agenda of sneaking up to the U.S. atomic energy supply.
Campbell is scheduled to testify on Monday in front of Congress while assuring he has undeniable evidence the Uranium One deal happened under Obama.
Regardless of Hillary’s deceiving and criminal tendencies, many outlets cannot even begin to criticize her openly. CNN tried suggesting Trump would have played the same cards if given the chance.
Basically, what they’re trying to say is “We cannot even begin turning our backs on Hillary, so a little hypothetical, off-the-tracks story on Trump could just be the perfect curtain.”
President Trump released a statement of his own regarding the matter:
“The uranium sale to Russia and the way it was done was so underhanded. With tremendous amounts of money being passed, I actually think that’s Watergate: modern age.”
