An undercover FBI informant who was involved in the Russian acquisition of Uranium One finally broke his silence, and spoke with congressional investigators Wednesday.
According to The Hill, American businessman William Douglas Campbell provided a written statement and answered several hours worth of questions from representatives of three separate committees — Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence and House Oversight and Government Reform — about what he had learned and shared with his handlers at the FBI.

Campbell testified that the money flowed through an American lobbying firm known as APCO Worldwide that had been hired for an annual fee of $3 million, with the intent of purchasing favor with the Clintons toward Russia by contributing financially to former President Bill Clinton’s charitable work, according to the Washington Examiner.
“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell explained in his written statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”
