Russian Federation probe adds Obama-era uranium deal

Hillary-Clinton-Appears-At-The-Southbank-Centres-London-Literature-Festival

On Tuesday, the House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee announced yet another Clinton-related investigation - the 2010 sale of a US uranium company to a Russian company, specifically whether there was an FBI probe of the matter and that was approved when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

The Washington Post's fact checker reported a year ago that although the State Department was one of several agencies that would have been able to approve the 2010 deal, "there is no evidence Clinton herself got involved in the deal personally, and it is highly questionable that this deal even rose to the level of the secretary of state". Ousted FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke at length to Congress about that investigation past year, and it's the subject of an ongoing review by the Justice Department's inspector general.

A second probe targets a 2013 decision by the Obama administration to approve the sale of a Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russian state-owned company Rosatom.

"If the mainstream media would cover the uranium scandal and that Russia has 20 percent of uranium for whatever reason, and a lot of people understand what those reasons may be, I think that's your Russia story", Trump said, referring to accusations by Clinton that his campaign had colluded with Russia to somehow steal the 2016 presidential election.

Nunes said on Tuesday that he wants to know "whether or not there was an FBI investigation, whether or not there was a DOJ investigation, and if so, why Congress was not informed of this matter". "We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time", House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes says.

'I'm intact,' Tillerson says, brushing off drama with Trump
Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), who said Trump has " castrated " his secretary of state by stepping over Tillerson's diplomatic duties. Pressed to respond to Corker's " castrated " comments, Tillerson cracked: "I checked".

But a state department official said at the time she "never intervened" in the committee review and the Clinton campaign said that she did not participate in the deal's approval.

The two panels have declined to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 elections, leaving those probes to Senate committees and the House intelligence committee. "This is more about uranium and whether or not the government actually functioned properly".

She noted, however, that Bossie is strongly pushing for a special counsel now when he was adamantly against the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"Uranium deal to Russian Federation, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn't want to follow!" the President tweeted.

The move came after a news article revealed last week that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been investigating the Uranium One-Rosatom deal in 2013 as part of an effort by Moscow to gain influence in the U.S. nuclear industry, in part by paying bribes. "That amounts to ten months of abdication of responsibility-a near total failure to question, investigate, or challenge the President or the White House, including on grave allegations of obstruction of justice".
