At least 16 FBI agents raided the home of Justice Department whistleblower, Dennis Nathan Cain, who was in possession of pertinent documents regarding the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One scandal.
Cain had turned them over to DOJ’s inspector general and the House and Senate intelligence committees.
According to his lawyer, Michael Socarras, special agents scoured Cain’s home for six hours, despite the whistleblower following standard procedure.
The Daily Caller’s Richard Pollock has more:
The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.
The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by TheDCNF alleges. Mueller is now the special counsel investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
“The bureau raided my client to seize what he legally gave Congress about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One,” the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras, told TheDCNF, noting that he considered the FBI’s raid to be an “outrageous disregard” of whistleblower protections.
The raid was permitted by a court order signed on Nov. 15 by federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher in the U.S. District Court for Baltimore and obtained by TheDCNF.
An agent from the FBI’s Baltimore division, who oversaw the raid, claimed that Cain possessed stolen federal property.
