Lawyer for FBI Informant: Clintons Engaged in 'On-the-Record Quid Pro Quo'
The Justice Department has lifted the gag order on a former FBI informant, giving him the green light to testify before Congress about what he knows about a controversial Obama-era uranium deal.
Multiple congressional committees want to learn what the informant knows about any Russian efforts to curry favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton to get approval for the 2010 deal, which gave Russia control of one-fifth of America's uranium supply.
Victoria Toensing, the attorney representing the FBI informant, said there's "on-the-record quid pro quo" surrounding the deal, with Bill Clinton receiving a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian bank and the Clinton Foundation getting tens of millions of dollars from people interested in the Uranium One deal.
"My client can put some meat on those bones and tell you what the Russians were saying during that time," Toensing said.
Bill Hemmer said this all sounds "nefarious," but he asked if any of this is actually illegal.
"To pay bribes and kickbacks? Yes! It certainly is," Toensing said. "The other thing that's against the law is the quid pro quo of whether the Clintons benefited - and we know that they did. And that would be up for a jury to look at it and say, 'Well, was there evil intent?'"
She said these accusations are similar to the corruption and bribery charges that Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is facing.
