Oct 26, 2017

The FBI informant who was forced to sign a confidentiality agreement regarding what he knew about the sale of Uranium One to the Russian Rosatom company has been released from a confidentiality agreement. The informant’s attorney, Victoria Toensing, received and official letter from the FBI “saying it no longer had any reason to ask the informant to keep his work confidential.” Toensing said of her client, “He is now able to and willing to talk with the congressional committees seeking his testimony . . . “ According to Toensing her client will testify “about his work uncovering the Russian nuclear bribery case and the efforts he witnessed by Moscow to gain influence with the Clintons in hopes of winning favorable uranium decision from the Obama administration.” Toensing plans to work with lawmakers to keep her client’s identity confidential. Russia’s Tenex company’s chief executive in the United States was found guilty of a bribery scheme that compromised “an American trucking company that shipped uranium for Russia.” Congress was not notified about the bribery scandal during the FBI investigation in 2014.
