Apparently this CI has some pretty damning evidence. At least that's what a lot of media outlets are implying....
I hope this CI actually gets a chance to testify...
The ultimate smoking gun would be evidence tying the Clinton Foundation donations and/or Bill Clinton's $500,000 speaking fee (from a Russian bank) to this deal. That would prove bribery.

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 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.

The undercover informant has been officially cleared / released from the NDA to testify to several congressional committees investigating the topic.
Certainly not good news for the Obama admin, including Obama himself, Clinton, Comey, Mueller and several others. This should be interesting to see how it turns out.
But the informant was unable to provide answers to lawmakers’ recent inquiries because he had signed a nondisclosure agreement with the bureau. He also was forced by the Justice Department in 2016 to withdraw a lawsuit that threatened to call attention to the case during last year’s presidential election.
Gee, thats not suspicious...
To be continued.
......Victoria Toensing, the attorney representing the FBI informant, said there's "on-the-record quid pro quo" surrounding the deal, with Bill Clinton receiving a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian bank and the Clinton Foundation getting tens of millions of dollars from people interested in the Uranium One deal.
"My client can put some meat on those bones and tell you what the Russians were saying during that time," Toensing said.
Bill Hemmer said this all sounds "nefarious," but he asked if any of this is actually illegal.
"To pay bribes and kickbacks? Yes! It certainly is," Toensing said. "The other thing that's against the law is the quid pro quo of whether the Clintons benefited - and we know that they did. And that would be up for a jury to look at it and say, 'Well, was there evil intent?'"
She said these accusations are similar to the corruption and bribery charges that Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is facing.
WASHINGTON — The top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent a letter Tuesday to Chairman Trey Gowdy questioning the motives behind a new Republican-launched investigation into why the Obama administration allowed a Russian company to acquire U.S. uranium mines while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the committee's senior Democrat, also said in the letter that Democrats want access this week to a "confidential informant" that some Republicans say will provide new evidence about the 2010 uranium deal.
"These actions raise serious questions about whether Republicans are reopening this investigation of Hillary Clinton for the same illegitimate reasons that President Trump demanded it — to try to distract public attention from the ongoing criminal probe into President Trump’s campaign and its ties to Russia, and to unfairly malign the official charged with executing it, Special Counsel Robert Mueller," Cummings wrote.
