This is BIG! On Wednesday night the Justice Department said they have lifted a gag order on a former FBI informant involved in a high-profile Russia bribery case.
The informant is now clear to speak to Congress about Moscow’s Obama-era uranium deals in the U.S. market and other suspicious arrangements.
In a statement, the department said the informant is authorized to speak to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, and the House of Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to provide, “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market,” including Russian company Rosatom, subsidiary Tenex, Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation.
If you are unclear about what the Uranium One deal is, it refers to the name of a Canada-based company with mines in the U.S. that was bought by Rosatom, a company backed by the Russian state.
The State Department, was led by Hillary Clinton, who one of nine U.S. government agencies that had to approve the deal back in 2010.
Since the FBI has provided evidence of Russian nuclear officials involved in fraudulent dealings, including extortion, bribery, and kickbacks, Congressional Republicans have had to question how the Uranium One deal was approved in the first place by an “inter-agency committee.”

The gag order has been lifted.
According to Lou Dobbs, the secret FBI informant that was threatened by Obama’s administration to keep quiet about Russian bribes in the Uranium One scandal.
President Obama received information on Russia’s criminal collusion with the State Department and yet the Obama administration approved the sale of 20% of the nation’s uranium to the Russians. Here is the video of Lou Dobbs below.
