DOJ Releases Informant from Confidentiality Agreement; He May Now Testify About Nuclear Bribes, and How He Was Shut Up by Obama and Obama's FBI About It

Let's get those NDAs of the Benghazi witnesses and survivors voided while we're at it. But this will do for today.

A former FBI informant can now testify to Congress about the Russian nuclear industry's bribery and money laundering during the time of the Obama administration, after being released from a confidentiality agreement by the Justice Department on Wednesday.

Congressional committees have attempted to interview the unidentified informant, but were unable to because of a nondisclosure agreement he had signed with the FBI. In 2016, the Justice Department required him to withdraw a lawsuit that claimed he would raise the case during the 2016 election.

"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, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation," Ian Prior, principal deputy director of public affairs at the Justice Department, said in a statement sent to the Washington Examiner.

Lock.

Them.

Up.

They counted on Hillary's victory to get away with this.

Always remember: Some "Republicans" who claim they're super-cereal conservatives wished to aid and abet Hillary and Obama in covering up their past crimes.

Fresh News: Victoria Toensing says that the Obama Administration threatened her client, the informant.

A former FBI informant who blew the whistle on a high-profile bribery case involving a Russian energy company was intimidated by Obama administration lawyers into dropping a civil suit against the government last year, his attorney says.

Victoria Toensing, the lawyer for the informant, told The Daily Caller's Vince Coglianese that Obama Justice Department lawyers told her client that"“his reputation and liberty [was] in jeopardy" if he did not drop a lawsuit against the government.

I would lower my expectations here. Sometimes these folks turn out to be people with personal axes to grind.

If it's something better than that, great! Just maybe temper expectations.
