FBI informant blocked from telling Congress about Russia nuclear corruption case, lawyer says
The Hill ^ | 10/18/2017 | JOHN SOLOMON AND ALISON SPANN

...Toensing said she also possesses memos that recount how the Justice Department last year threatened her client when he attempted to file a lawsuit that could have drawn attention to the Russian corruption during the 2016 presidential race as well as helped him recover some of the money Russians stole from him through kickbacks during the FBI probe.....

I think President Trump would allow that in some form or fashion. I say that because he may not want his testimony to become public just yet, or even have him identified due to Arkancide. I haven't read the whole article so I do not know if this person is named somewhere within the article.

John Solomon used to be over at Circa and had similar blockbuster stories. IMO he has to have source(s) in the Deep State that are opposed to what their anti-Trumper cohorts are doing.

Calling AG Sessions.... that’s right he isn’t answering to anyone but his fellow Senate swamp buddies.

I hope this guy has security, or is under protective custody. This could very well be the next Arkancide.

Hannity will keep on this like a dog with a bone. He’s good for that.

Okay apparently they know his name within the governemetn:

When he tried to bring some of the allegations to light in the lawsuit last year, “the Obama Justice Department threatened him with loss of freedom. They said they would bring a criminal case against him for violating an NDA,” she added.

Blocked by the Obama Justice Department from informing Congress. The only thing lacking in the Obama Justice Department was Justice. What else is new?

Has Rip Van Sessions woken up yet?

Didn’t think so.

If their is any ounce of patriotism left in our media besides a few from Foxnews and elsewhere, they should revolt from their managers and corporate heads and tell the American people the truth or they will be complicit in this huge coverup.

You hear that mediots? You will be held accountable as well by the American people, if you continue to push the lies and help these traitors cover up this Clinton cabal crimes.

Mediots, If you have any ounce of patriotism towards your country, you’ll do the right thing, otherwise you are helping to protect traitorous crimes against your country. If those ends justify the means to you, then so be it and you will be held accountable as well.

The real Russian collusion was by the Democrats and Mueller’s job is to provide the cover up.

Sessions is a disappointment. Mueller has a clear conflict of interest exponentially larger than Sessions handshake.

I believe the informant was the source that Rod Rosenstein used to convict Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin of money laundering.
