The FBI informant at the heart of Hillary Clinton’s widening Uranium One scandal is opening-up about the Obama administration’s shady deal; saying senior Russian businessmen wired money to the US to buy influence with Hillary Clinton’s State Department, reports the Hill.
The bureau’s inside man levied his bombshell accusation this week; claiming Moscow “routed millions of dollars” to the United States with the “expectation it would be used” to help Clinton’s charity organization and buy influence with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In a letter to Congressional leaders, the informant claims that Russian executives “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 Clintons’ Global Initiative.”
APCO refers to APCO Worldwide, an American-based lobbying firm working on behalf of Russian authorities.
“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. 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 U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement,” added the inside man.
The bombshell accusation raises new questions over how and why the Obama administration approved the controversial agreement; despite warnings from the FBI that Russian agents were seeking to infiltrate America’s nuclear industry.
