The former F-B-I informant for a high-profile Russian bribery case has been cleared to testify before Congress. The Justice Department reported that the order had been lifted late Wednesday – allowing testimony on the Uranium One deals with Russia during the Obama Presidency. The informant has been released to speak with leaders of three congressional committees, the House Oversight Committee, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
According to the Justice Department the informant will be allowed to share information related to corruption and bribery surrounding transactions within the Uranium market – this would include topics related to Uranium One, Russian company Rosatom and their subsidiary Tenex and the Clinton Foundation. The investigation began following a report from “The Hill” that the F-B-I had evidence of fraudulent dealings with Russian nuclear officials that included kickbacks, bribery, and extortion.
Is this a ‘smoking gun’ for Democrats? Could the testimony lead to an indictment of Hillary Clinton or other top Democrats? Political Analyst and Democratic Strategist Mustafa Tameez weighs in.
