What I suspect is that on the release dates that come up they only let documents be published where any names on them are deceased.  My guess is that the remaining documents mention people by name who are still alive.

I wonder if Vegas has odds on this informant being able to testify against Putin, the Clinton Foundation and possibly the FBI.

FBI informant in Obama-era Russian nuclear bribery cleared to testify before Congress

The Justice Department on Wednesday night released a former FBI informant from a confidentiality agreement, allowing him to testify before Congress about what he witnessed while undercover about the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favorable decisions during the Obama administration.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed to The Hill a deal had been reached clearing the informant to talk to Congress for the first time, nearly eight years after he first went undercover for the FBI.

“As of tonight, the Department of Justice has authorized the informant to disclose to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as one member of each of their staffs, any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation,” she said

AG Sessions is acting rather weirdly in this whole Trump Russian/Clinton DNC Russian collusion.  Maybe he's just lining up his ducks and is going to drop a bombshell someday. Nah!

This investigation is going to be embarrassing for the DOJ.

Remember that under the previous administration, the DOJ used the Russian dossier paid for by the DNC/Clinton to get a warrant from the FISA Court to spy on the Trump campaign.   



FBI used dossier allegations to bolster Trump-Russia investigation

The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

This includes approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor the communications of Carter Page, two of the officials said. Last year, Page was identified by the Trump campaign as an adviser on national security.

Also, it was reported that FBI money also found its way to the author of the Russian dossier.

The story narrative seems to be shifting from last week's anonymous sources.

FBI informant gathered years of evidence on Russian push for US nuclear fuel deals, including Uranium One, memos show

In recent days, news media including The Washington Post and Fox News anchor Shepard Smith have inaccurately reported another element of the story: that Uranium One never exported its American uranium because the Obama administration did not allow it.

However, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission authorized Uranium One to export through a third party tons of uranium to Canada for enrichment processing, and some of that product ended up in Europe, NRC documents state.

A Uranium One executive acknowledged to The Hill that 25 percent of the uranium it shipped to Canada under the third-party export license ended up with either European or Asian customers through what it known in the nuclear business as “book transfers.”

But the recent leaks that have most concerned congressional investigators occurred in a Yahoo story late Friday, in which Justice officials anonymously questioned Campbell’s credibility and suggested they had to alter their criminal case against Mikerin in 2015, eventually striking a plea deal, because they feared he would be a “disaster” as a trial witness.

The FBI informant file, however, paints a different picture. After Mikerin pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 48 months prison in December 2015, the FBI took Campbell out to a celebratory seafood dinner and delivered a handsome reward: a check for $51,046.36 dated Jan. 7, 2016, a copy of which was obtained by The Hill.

A source directly familiar with the FBI’s evidence said the primary reason prosecutors working under Rosenstein, then the U.S. attorney in Maryland, changed course in the case was because of concerns their initial indictment miscast Campbell’s role in the investigation.

And yet the Democrats beat the Russia Drum - and Impeach Trump.

Even as their Senators and Congressman prove they aren't the friends of females.

What a bunch of hypocrites.

It is probably nothing, but Bruce Ohr worked for Sally Yates.  He met with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson the day after Trump was elected.

Fusion GPS court filing tried to stop Congress from looking at their bank transitions to "certain media companies, journalists and businesses,"  but the judge shot them down.   

It should be interesting to see who in the media got paid by Fusion GPS (with DNC/HRC money) to peddle the Russian dossier to the public.

Maybe I'm naive but it's sure looking like the dems were the only ones colluding with the Russians and the only way to hide it is blame it on the republican's.   Allocate all the resources to get Trump and the dems skate free.

There were a few developments in the Russian collusion case this past week that should make the next month interesting.

  1)  Fusion GPS bank records were given to Congress so we should soon discover how the money was flowing between GPS, the DNC/HRC, the Russians, and a number of U.S. reporters.

  2)  The House Intelligence Committee reached an agreement with the Justice Department to stop their stonewalling and provide access to "all" documents and witnesses.  We should know shortly if the DOJ used the HRC/DNC financed Russian Dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on and unmask names of members of the Trump Campaign.

  3)  The Senate Committee on the Judiciary sent a recommendation to the DOJ & FBI that an investigation be started against Steele.

This will all go away and Mullers committee will wrap up with no collusion found..

Read a comment last night.  The Trump Russian collusion is being rallied by the same democrats that are against voter ID as they see no evidence of voter fraud
