The attorney representing an FBI informant claiming to have inside info regarding the controversial Uranium One bargain may “put some meat” on the bones of allegations of “quid pro quo” contrary to the Clintons.
The Justice Department lifted the gag order placed on the FBI informant by the Obama government and was cleared to testify before Congress about the offer.
The attorney representing the informant, Victoria Toensing, said on Fox News there’s “on-the-record quid pro quo” involving Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Toensing said Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 by “Russian people who had been interested in the Uranium One bargain” and the Clinton Foundation received “thousands of dollars by the very same people involved in the deal.”
“My client can put some meat on those bones and tell you what the Russians were saying during that time,” she said.
Bill Hemmer from Fox News then asked, “I know it sounds nefarious, but is it against the law?”
“What, to pay bribes and kickbacks? Yes, yes, it certainly is,” Toensing shot back.
The attorney said a jury would also have to decide on whether the “quid pro quo” benefited the Clintons and amounts to a crime.
“You’ve got a trial going on with Senator Menendez right now,” she said. “It’s the same kind of case.”
