'Clinton Cash' Author: Story Has Grown Since Book Was Published

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

Peter Schweizer said Thursday there have been some matters that have changed since his book, "Clinton Cash," was first published in 2015.

"First of all, what we did not know, which I did not know, is that when the uranium sale was approved in 2010, Hillary Clinton, among others, signed off on it and there was actually a FBI criminal probe at that time involving kickbacks and other schemes involving this Russian company," Schweitzer told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

Further, he said that there is a witness, who he identified as an "American businessman" who is under a gag order, but the man has said he "heard and has information about efforts to bribe the Clintons involving the deal. So that's the major developments."

On Tuesday, The Hill reported that former President Barack Obama's administration allowed a 2010 deal that gave Russia control of a great deal of American uranium, and that the FBI had gotten evidence that Russian nuclear officials increased the country's atomic energy business through bribery, kickbacks and extortion in the United States.

The report also noted the FBI had an eyewitness who claimed Russian officials sent millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation at about the same time Hillary Clinton was part of the government panel that made the decision on the deal with Moscow.

"There is no evidence by the way that the people who were making the decision on this uranium deal approving it were aware that the FBI had this criminal investigation going on," said Schweitzer. "And then, in 2014, four years after the deal went through, they actually charged and convicted this executive with this Russian company for this scheme."

In addition, Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley announced this week that he will launch a Senate investigation, said Schweitzer, calling that a "huge development."

"Shortly after my book came out in 2015, two things happened. I was contacted by the FBI, who was interested in investigating this, and started to look into it," said Scheweitzer, and Grassley then started making inquiries.

"So this is a culmination of more than, you know, two years work on his part," Schweitzer added. "He wants to get to the bottom of how this actually happened."

The writer said there also is no need for the FBI's witness to remain under a gag order, and called on authorities to allow him to testify before Congress and to tell his story to the media, so people can decide what they think.
