U.S. under Trump Series: House GOP begins investigating Russia Uranium deal

U.S. under Trump Series: House GOP begins investigating Russia Uranium deal”

Some Republicans have claimed that Hillary Clinton's State Department approved the deal after her husband's charitable foundation received a $145 million donation, but the State Department controls only one seat on the panel that approved the transaction and the New York Times has reported that Clinton did not participate in the decision.

Stuart Varney said the tables have turned on Democrats in the Russian Federation story, now that Hillary Clinton is mired in another scandal.

President Trump has criticized the agreement throughout the campaign saying that Clinton made a fortune thanks to the agreement.

In the five-year period between Mikerin's first documented illegal conduct and his arrest and charges, the Obama administration approved the Uranium One deal, which handed control of 20 percent of US uranium production capacity to Mikerin's parent company Rosatom and allowed contracts amounting to billions between TENEX and American utility companies. "We asked for a special counsel and they haven't given us an answer and we've asked for certain documents and they haven't given us the documents, so it's three months", Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, a member on the committee, told The Daily Caller Monday night.

Republicans in Congress also are investigating whether officials in former president Barack Obama's administration spied on Mr Trump's campaign and whether Russians helped pay for a dossier on Mr Trump commissioned by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm. "The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and even handedness".

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) announced plans on Tuesday to launch an investigation into an Obama-era uranium deal.

Former Justice Department national security attorney Joshua Geltzer said "it's not unusual for a CFIUS review to be handled by career civil servants" as opposed to the agency head, like Clinton, on the committee.

Ms Clinton said she believed Mr Comey eve of election intervention had been a key factor in her surprise defeat to Donald Trump.

Further, the Hill cites sources indicating that Russian nuclear officials routed millions of dollars to the U.S. that were created to benefit the Clinton Foundation at the same time the deal was approved. Former Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, who chaired the House Intelligence Committee at the time of the probe, also told The Hill that he was never informed about the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe either.

All the new investigations address the President's longstanding grievances.
