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.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
