Informant told FBI Russia aided Iranian nuke program using same laundering as in U.S dealings

[Ed. – This is William Campbell, the FBI informant who provided evidence of a Russian kickback scheme involving the Clintons  He was also able to tell the FBI Russia was using backdoor operations to aid Iran’s nuclear program — i.e., in ways that presumably violated sanctions, since the Russians didn’t want to be found out — at the same time the Obama administration was making decisions about things like Uranium One and shipping its uranium stock out of the country.]

Notes of Campbell’s FBI debriefings show he reported in 2010 that a Russian nuclear executive was using “the same kind of payment network” to move funds between Russia and Iran as was used to launder kickbacks between Moscow and Americans.

Campbell worked from 2008 to 2014 as an undercover informant inside Rosatom, Russia’s state-controlled nuclear giant, while posing as a consultant. He helped the FBI put several Russian and U.S. executives in prison for a bribery, kickback, money laundering and extortion scheme.

He said he became concerned the United States was providing favorable decisions to the Russian nuclear industry in 2010 and 2011 — clearing the way for Moscow to buy large U.S. uranium assets and to secure billions in nuclear fuel contracts — even as he reported evidence of Moscow’s help to Iran.
