Late Wednesday, The Hill broke the news that FBI informant Douglas Campbell came forward and spoke with Congress in regards to the Uranium One Scandal. And what he disclosed during the meeting implicates the Clinton Foundation and their role in making key decisions in the State Department.
The FBI informant disclosed that Russia paid the U.S. lobbying firm APCO Worldwide $3 million annually. And “a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians was to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative” to gain influence over Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the selling of uranium to Russia, which eventually ended up happening. This is part of an alleged pay-for-play scheme that many say occurred over the stint of Hillary Clinton’s reign over the State Department. And Congressman Matt Gaetz weighed in on what he is pushing to have happen next after learning of this scandal.
Before appearing on Hannity’s Thursday evening show, Gaetz tweeted:
“Yesterday confirms our suspicions that donations made to Clinton Foundation were a factor in the State Dept’s decision to approve the sale of U.S. uranium assets to Russia. This pay-for-play corruption is intolerable. I have called for an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.”

Then while appearing on Hannity, Gaetz fired off on the Clintons and said there should be “consequences” for what they did. Gaetz mentioned how he and other Congressman are pushing for a second Special Counsel investigation and have already filed legislation to do so. Gaetz said :
“We can’t have Mueller investigate because he should have raised an objection. We can’t have Rosenstein investigate because we’ve already seen how is tied up in a lot of the facts. And (Attorney General) Jeff Sessions has already recused himself.”
“The only way this doesn’t become the next Benghazi, where we stir up a bunch of facts but then let the Clintons off the hook is to appoint a Special Counsel. And we need our Attorney General to do that.” See Video Below

Wow! The Net Is Closing In On The Clintons!
If Gaetz and other Congressmen get their way, it will be very bad news for the Clintons, as they won’t be able to be investigated by those, like Rosenstein, Comey and Lynchn who clearly protected them over time.
