An attorney for the FBI informant in the Uranium One scandal challenged a Clinton spokesman to bring it on as she defended her client’s credibility.
Victoria Toensing, attorney for Douglas Campbell, explained Thursday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” that while Democrats are “trying to attack anybody who’s telling the truth about Hillary Clinton,” her client has truth and proof on his side.
Campbell told three congressional committees that Russia was sending millions of dollars to the U.S. under the guise of helping the Clintons’ charity efforts while expecting to influence the Uranium One deal when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state under former President Obama.
“A top Russian official told my client that the Russians were going to pay APCO, which is a lobbying form with all kinds of former Clinton staffers on it, $3 million,” to lobby on issues and do “in-kind work for the Clinton Foundation,”Toensing said. “Now that’s a lot of money for a year of lobbying.”
Campbell was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors on Wednesday by bipartisan staff on the Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence and House Oversight and Government Reform committees. Hillary Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill slammed Campbell’s “charade” in a statement.
“Just yesterday the committee made clear that this secret informant charade was just that, a charade,” Merrill said in a statement according to Fox News.
He characterized the Campbell testimony as another example of “GOP-manufactured scandals designed to distract from their own President’s problems and the threat to democracy he poses.”
Toensing laughed off Merrill’s statement, saying he would make “a good fiction writer.”
Campbell was “so credible,” Toensing said, defending her client.
“He came out because he thought he was dying from cancer and he wanted his story to be told,” she explained. “They can go attack all they want to. He’s got the truth, he’s got briefings, the FBI has all kinds of videotapes.”
The Russians thought they had “died and gone to heaven” when Clinton became secretary of state in 2009, Toensing said, as they then began planning out the Uranium One purchase. The controversial deal in 2010 used the Canadian mining company to transfer 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia while millions of dollars were also being poured in to the Clinton Foundation.
Toensing said the attention her client has been getting is something new for him as he is not used to being in the spotlight.
“This is a new world to him,” she said. “He says to me, ‘I was used to threats from the Russians, but I’ve never been under this kind of fire.'”
