The Department of Justice will interview multiple FBI agents, to get to the bottom of this burgeoning controversy. That fulfills a promise the DOJ had made to Congress last month.
Two Republican-led committees will probe the Obama-era uranium deal with President Vladimir Putin’s Russian government, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-California, promised Republicans, Democrats and Independents who voted for President Donald Trump and his “Make America Great Again” agenda.
Nunes, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said he will with the man being called House Oversight Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to jointly investigate the Obama administration’s decision to approve the sale of a Canadian company with American uranium mining abilities to a Kremlin-backed energy company.
President Donald Trump called for such an investigation on Twitter in March. The Senate Judiciary Committee announced last week that it would also be investigating the deal.
In 2010, the Obama Administration approved the transaction that sold strategic U.S. uranium mining facilities to a Russian company, Uranium One.
Hillary was just one of nine agency heads who okayed the controversial sale — but her conduct raised eyebrows when press reports revealed that key players in the deal from Russia had contributed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation soon after. Former President Bill Clinton was subsequently paid $500,000 to deliver a speech in Moscow to a Russian investment bank that was involved in the transaction.
