DOJ Lifts Gag Order on Russian Informant – Here’s What This Means

What happened?

The Justice Department has lifted a gag order on an FBI informant so he can share with Congress what he learned about a Russian bribery scheme connected with Russia’s purchase allowing the country to control a fifth of the U.S. uranium supply.

The Obama administration’s decision to approve a deal letting a Russian energy company purchase Uranium One is being investigated by three congressional committees. Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation are also under scrutiny because Clinton signed off on the deal while serving as Secretary of State and because Russia donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

What’s the official word on this?

Spokesman Ian Prior said in a statement: “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 (emphasis added).”

Glenn’s take:

The Obama administration never wanted us to hear what this informant has to say about Russia’s plan to control America’s access to uranium.

“In Russia, they probably call this business as usual, but in America, we have one word for that type of venture and it is this: ‘illegal,’” Glenn said.

GLENN: The Obama administration never intended for you to hear what is about to become public. An informant, undercover for five years, gathering information on Russia's efforts to grow its atomic energy business, not in Siberia, but here in the United States.

Not only were the Russians successful in controlling a large swath of American uranium, but they did so by engaging in bribery, in kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering. Tonight at 5 o'clock, I have a full chalkboard on this. This is really important for you to see who is connected and what is involved.

In Russia, they probably call this business as usual, but in America, we have one word for that type of venture. And it is this: illegal.

According to an article in the Hill last week, the FBI was aware of all of this before the Obama administration approved the deal. And a big source of their evidence came from this undercover informant. Now, up until I think it was yesterday, all we heard on this was whispers and rumors. But last night, the Department of Justice cleared the way for an informant to speak to Congress.

Now, why wasn't this done years ago? This informant witnessed a slew of illegal activity by a hostile nation looking to control (?) (?) Russia routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees, the week she was making the decision.

This is all allegedly part of the Russian efforts to influence the US government, to approve the uranium deal. The informant's attorney said that her client will be able to shed light on, quote, what all the Russians were talking about during the time that these bribery payments were made.

Well, that kind of puts this gag order into new context, doesn't it?

You want to fully understand this story? It hits the chalkboard at 5 o'clock today, only on TheBlaze TV.

Get your popcorn ready. Things are about to get interesting.

Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?

If Republicans lose their majority in the U.S. Senate after the Georgia runoff election, we may be facing dark times. So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.' And, it only takes 15-20 percent of us to change the world. Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control.
