DOJ Lifts Gag Order On Clinton - Uranium One Informant: What’s Next?

There’s a (living) eyewitness to one of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s biggest crimes who is ready to testify and share his story publicly, but until last night he was reluctant to do so because of a powerful disincentive to go public hanging over his head.

No, it was not fear of becoming another victim of Arkancide, nor was it money.

Uranium OneIt was a nondisclosure agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, now allegedly run by Director Christopher Wray, who was nominated by Republican President Donald Trump and confirmed by a Republican Senate, and who is supervised by Republican Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Earlier this week Washington super-lawyer Victoria Toensing, an attorney for the former FBI informant, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” that her client has “specific information about contributions and bribes to various entities and people in the United States" related to the Clinton’s Uranium One deal.

She said she could not go further because her client had not been released from a nondisclosure agreement, but suggested the gag order could be lifted soon. Toensing also claimed that her client was “threatened by the Loretta Lynch Justice Department” when he pursued a civil action in which he reportedly sought to disclose some information about the case.

As our friend Michael W. Chapman at CNS News reported in his excellent coverage of the Uranium One scandal:

As the case wound down, the FBI directed the informant to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), which prohibited him from speaking about the case to members of Congress. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was the FBI director during the bulk of the investigation; James Comey became director in September 2013.

According to Toensing, the Department of Justice, under the Obama administration, told the informant that if he violated the NDA, "he would lose his liberty." Toensing told that she had never heard of an NDA "that had a criminal penalty for violation," and that the penalty is "usually monetary."

As of last night, the gag order – or more correctly nondisclosure agreement – has been lifted.

"As of tonight, the Department of Justice has authorized the informant to disclose to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as one member of each of their staffs, any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market," Justice spokesman Ian Prior said.

According to Fox News, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is also focusing on the informant amid scrutiny of the 2010 approval of the controversial uranium deal that netted the Clinton Foundation over $140 million in donations from Russian interests and Bill Clinton a half-million dollar speaking fee.

Grassley is raising questions about potential “conflicts of interest” for Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration, and especially wants to know whether the committee that approved the deal was aware of the FBI probe involving a subsidiary of the same Russian firm.

And Chairman Grassley is getting right to the heart of the real issue here – why was the nondisclosure agreement put in place?

The Washington Examiner’s Todd Shepperd reports that "The Executive Branch does not have the authority to use non-disclosure agreements to avoid Congressional scrutiny," Grassley wrote in a letter to his former Senate colleague Jeff Sessions. "If the FBI is allowed to contract itself out of Congressional oversight, it would seriously undermine our Constitutional system of checks and balances. The Justice Department needs to work with the Committee to ensure that witnesses are free to speak without fear, intimidation or retaliation from law enforcement."

Grassley's letter to the Justice Department also asks for a copy of the non-disclosure agreement the informant signed with the FBI.

In a recent hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Grassley said, "This committee has an obligation to get to the bottom of this issue" and from experience, when Chairman Grassley wants to get to the bottom of something he usually succeeds.

Could it be because senior Justice Department and FBI officials were neck deep in covering up the Clinton’s pay-for-play scheme?

As Fox News reporter Doug Jarrett observed:

It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.”

But why has there been no prosecution of Clinton?  Why did the FBI and the Department of Justice during the Obama administration keep the evidence secret?  Was it concealed to prevent a scandal that would poison Barack Obama’s presidency?  Was Hillary Clinton being protected in her quest to succeed him?

The answer may lie with the people who were in charge of the investigation and who knew of its explosive impact.  Who are they?

Eric Holder was the Attorney General when the FBI began uncovering the Russian corruption scheme in 2009.  Since the FBI reports to him, he surely knew what the bureau had uncovered.

What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.  Since the vote was unanimous, it appears Holder knowingly and deliberately countenanced a deal that was based on illegal activities and which gave Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium assets.

It gets worse.  Robert Mueller was the FBI Director during the time of the Russian uranium probe, and so was his successor James Comey who took over in 2013 as the FBI was still developing the case.  Rod Rosenstein, then-U.S. Attorney, was supervising the case.  There is no indication that any of these men ever told Congress of all the incriminating evidence they had discovered and the connection to Clinton.  The entire matter was kept secret from the American public.

It may be no coincidence that Mueller (now special counsel) and Rosenstein (now Deputy Attorney General) are the two top people currently investigating whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.  Mueller reports to Rosenstein, while Comey is a key witness in the case.  It is not unreasonable to conclude that Mueller, Rosenstein and Comey may have covered up potential crimes involving Clinton and Russia, but are now determined to find some evidence that Trump “colluded” with Russia.

Our Twitter friend, freelance writer Daniel John Sobieski, was pretty tough on Attorney General Sessions when he (correctly we think) he demanded Sessions lift the gag order on the informant:

“The question is now whether Jeff Sessions wants to help President Trump to drain the swamp be vacating the gag order and letting evidence come forth proving the Clintons orchestrated the greatest criminal conspiracy in U.S. history at the expense of American national security or whether he is just another swamp thing committed to clogging up the drainage pipes. Justice may be blind, but it should never be gagged.”

Now that the gag order has been lifted it is time for Attorney General Sessions to choose a side in the much larger question: Why was the nondisclosure agreement put in place to begin with, who demanded the informant sign it, and what was their relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton?

True Crimes

This whole 'investigation' by Mueller has been in hopes of protecting Obama and his entire administration, as well as the democrats. It does make one wonder why Jeff Sessions recused himself at the time. Trump was right. He shouldn't have done that. You don't put the foxes in charge of the henhouse. Why has he dragged his feet on this all along? Unfortunately, I doubt any of these people will ever see the inside of a prison, but at the very least they will be defanged so hopefully all of them, Obama, his family, and all the Clintons will lose all credibility and will never be heard from again.

Conspiracy to corrupt

Just take a look at Comey, Mueller and Rosenstein. These are what I call "deep state snakes". Both of the Clintons need to be in prison or better yet "hung" as traitors to America. In fact I will go so far to state that the sole reason for the existence of the democrat communist party is to overthrow our republic form of government. Over 50 murders and very questionable Arkansides also need to be looked into. The Arkansas State Police were Bull's private security force used for criminal as well as intimidation purposes to cover for Bill's litany of crimes.

Something else going on here

There is something else going on here. Congress has always the legal authority to subpoena this FBI Confidential Informant tomorrow according to SCOTUS in the McGrain v. Daugherty, 1972 decision.
