FBI informant on Uranium One corruption must be allowed to testify

Oct. 19, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Justice Department to clear the FBI informant now alleging corruption in the Uranium One deal to be cleared to testify:

“The FBI informant must be allowed to testify. The initial reports of a delay of the investigation of the Russian bribery nuclear fuels transfer scandal involving former FBI directors Robert Mueller and James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former Attorney General Eric Holder to help grease the wheels of the Uranium One deal during the Obama administration could irreparably shake the confidence of the American people in the entire Justice Department. The first step Attorney General Jeff Sessions must take is to clear the whistleblower to testify about the corruption that he or she is alleging. Only through that testimony and subsequent thorough investigation led by Sessions, not involving any of the accused, can the interests of the U.S. government and its people be served. If the Russians exerted influence at the highest levels of the Justice Department and the FBI in order to obtain approval of the takeover of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium reserves, then that sale should be nullified and the people who facilitated it should be imprisoned.”
