New reports reveal that Obama-appointed Attorney General Loretta Lynch once issued a threat to an FBI informant to block him from disclosing efforts from disclosing from people inside Russia’s nuclear industry to curry favor with the Clintons- Hillary and former president, Bill Clinton.
Victoria Toensing, the informant’s counsel, and who once served in the Reagan administration and as Senate Intelligence Committee said that her client was threatened with “loss of freedom” when he planned to file a lawsuit to reveal the real Russian corruption during the presidential campaign in 2016.
Toesing asserts that all the information has not come out. She added: “’And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, “This is wrong. What should I do about it?.”
The attorney is even so confident that she shares she has the memos that would prove the Justice Department threatened the informant during the campaign.
Toensing says the informant witnessed “ a lot of bribery going on around the U.S. but he was made to sign a nondisclosure agreement “at the behest of the FBI.” The DOJ, says Toensing, threatened then her client that they would bring a criminal case against him for violating an NDA.”
Emails obtained by The Hill shows the informant’s attorney describing the pressure being exerted on the man by the DOJ. One email by the attorney reads: “The government was taking a very harsh position that threatened both your reputation and liberty.”
Another email reads: “As you will recall the government made serious threats sufficient to cause you to withdraw your civil complaint.”
President Trump’s own lawyer Jay Sekulow believes the informant issue possibly goes back to 2009. He said the informant was threatened not to speak until the presidential election last year. It was also during the 2016 presidential election that the DOJ and FBI issued a threat to enforce the agreement with prosecution.
Now that a new DOJ is in office, things could be a lot different. And Toensing is confident that’s what Trump will accomplish.
