The uranium One case just took an interesting turn, and judging by Hillary Clinton’s reaction to it, she’s shaking in her boots at what’s to come.
Apparently, the FBI informant who had remained anonymous just broke his silence, and what he had to say just blew the case wide open. Speaking to Reuters, William Campbell, a former lobbyist for Tenex, the U.S.-based arm of Rosatom, said he’s ready to release all the evidence he has of impropriety that occurred as the Uranium One deal was being pushed through.
“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist and I have it,” Campbell said, although he declined to give the exact details of what he has.
As many are aware, Campbell had been under a Justice Department gag order under threat of imprisonment if he spoke publicly about what he knew. However, at the direction of President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions lifted the order so that Campbell could speak to Congress about about what he knew.
Since we first learned of Campbell, his attorney, Victoria Toensing, has disclosed that he has recordings, bank records, phone records, and other evidence that the deal was made under shady circumstances. In a late October interview on Sean Hannity’s program, Toensing revealed that her client has the “smoking gun” evidence needed to take down those involved with the sale of 20 percent of America’s uranium to our Cold War adversary, we previously reported.
John Solomon: Just a little bit ago before we came on Victoria and I talked and she was able to confirm to me that her client has information that Director Mueller and President Obama and other officials were briefed on this investigation in real time as it was going on…
Attorney Victoria Toensing: My client was told this information, now maybe the bureau is bluffing but I don’t think so because they were very specific. They said that the briefing made it into President Obama’s daily briefing papers. So I don’t think they made that up.
Sean Hannity: Let me get this straight. So Mueller, Rosenstein, maybe even Comey at the time and the president of the United States, certainly Eric Holder, who was head of the DOJ, they all knew that they had all of this information that the Russians had infiltrated with the purpose of a criminal enterprise to corner the market on uranium, the foundational material for a nuclear bomb.
Ever since these bombshell revelations, Congressional Republicans have demanded the Justice Department employ a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of what exactly happened. Sen. chuck Grassley was one of many to make the demand publicly on Twitter.
“Whoever in DOJ is capable w authority to appoint a special counsel shld do so to investigate Uranium One “whoever” means if u aren’t recused”

In an interesting twist, Hillary Clinton broke her silence on the ordeal Wednesday evening, when she said that if the Trump administration pursues the investigation into Uranium One, it would be an abuse of power the likes of which happens in “authoritarian regimes.”
From Fox News:
But in an interview with Mother Jones, Clinton claimed that the Uranium One story has been “debunked” a number of times and that the Trump administration was merely using the story as a distraction.
“And if they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, some authoritarian regime where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated — that rips at the fabric of the contract we have that we can trust our justice system,” she said.
Judging by her reaction to all of this, it appears as if Hillary is getting a little scared, wouldn’t you say?
Then again, she did warn her co-conspirators during her campaign that if Trump were to win, “we’ll all hang from nooses,” so she obviously knew it was coming.
Now it’s time for her to pay the piper.
