House Republicans investigating Obama-era uranium deal

Hillary Clinton promotes her new book

On Tuesday, the House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee announced yet another Clinton-related investigation - the 2010 sale of a USA 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 Justice Department has not yet responded to CNN's request for comment. Clinton, as secretary of state, headed one of the nine government agencies making up CFIUS.

Hillary Clinton may have lost the presidential election, but she hasn't lost the interest of Republicans.

"Seven years ago this month, I raised these objections with the treasury secretary who said they were being fully investigated and we want to see what happened to that inquiry", said King.

U.S. House committees are investigating why former President Barack Obama's administration allowed a Russian-backed company to purchase American uranium mines in 2010.

Taylor calls the subpoena "an abuse of authority" given that the committee chairman who signed it, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, had stepped aside months ago from overseeing an investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

In a statement Tuesday, a lawyer for Fusion GPS calls the subpoena from the chairman of the House intelligence committee "overly broad" and without a legitimate goal. The same week he fired Comey, the president told NBC News in an interview that he thought of the "made-up" story about ties to Russian Federation when he fired Comey.

Nunes said Tuesday that he has not spoken with the White House about the uranium matter.

"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.

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced the investigation into the deal at a news conference Tuesday. She said at the very least Sessions should lift an Obama-era gag order on a witness who claims he has information about efforts to bribe the Clintons in regard to the deal. "And if so, why was Congress not informed of this matter?" he said. Democrats are criticizing both investigations as attempts to distract from the ongoing investigation into Russia's election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, according to ABC News.

"Never before has a political party been so sad that it won the White House and so desperate for the other party to be President", Jesse Ferguson tweeted, in response to news of the new investigation.
