The lawyer of a former FBI informant with potentially explosive information on the Obama administration claims her client was intimidated into silence.

Victoria Toensing represents the former informant and claims he was given a direct threat in order to make him drop a civil lawsuit against the government.

The unnamed informant was told by Obama administration lawyers that his “reputation and liberty [would be] in jeopardy” if he didn’t comply, according to attorney Victoria Toensing.

“The Russians have threatened him, and up until just last night the U.S. government has threatened him,” Toensing told the Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese during an interview on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall.”

The FBI informant was working to get information on Russia’s efforts to grow its atomic energy base. He claims, through his lawyer, that he was silenced by Lorreta Lynch, Eric Holder and Obama administration officials about the deal that gave Russia owned company Rosatam control over 20 percent of America’s uranium reserves.

Toensing has been making the rounds to get her client’s message out, and made the same claims on Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight on Monday (2:20).

Questions surrounding the deal continue to grow.

The Republican chairmen of two House committees announced a new probe into the Uranium One deal and the Obama administration’s investigation into the deal on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, President Trump put pressure on the Department of Justice to finally release the former informant from a confidentially agreement.

Evidence shows Uranium One was involved in a massive bribery and extortion scheme at the time of the deal suggesting the Obama administration put America’s national security at risk.

The Clintons are also closely tied to the growing scandal, having received millions in donations for the Clinton Foundation from Uranium One. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on the inter-agency governmental committee that approved the sale.
