House Republicans open investigation into Russian Federation uranium deal

Meanwhile, the investigation into the email server will focus on why former FBI Director James Comey announced it was investigating Clinton, but waited for several months to say it had a similar announcement concerning inquiries into President Donald Trump, The Post reported. The next year, Rosatom sought to assume majority ownership in Uranium One - a deal that the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) had to approve.

They also want to find out why the FBI chose to formally notify Congress of the probe on two separate occasions and why the FBI - as opposed to the Justice Department - recommended that Clinton not be charged at the conclusion of the investigation.

While at the State Department, Hillary Clinton helped approve the sale, which handed over control 20 percent of the US uranium supply to the Russian government.

"The closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians", she said on C-SPAN, "the more they want to just throw mud on the wall".

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 objective.

Roger Federer beats Rafael Nadal to win Shanghai Masters
So can't win them all against Rafa, to be honest. "He's too good of a player". "He played very fast and he played well". For the two to tie, it would require Federer to earn 1,960 points more than Nadal between now and the end of the year.

David Bossie said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must appoint a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal, because that's the only way to get to the bottom of it. Russian Federation later assumed full ownership of the company.

Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said his probe will be a multi-panel investigation with the House Oversight Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee. He made those allegations after visiting the White House, leading Democrats to accuse him of coordinating his efforts with the Trump administration.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump earlier this year, could not be immediately reached for comment. Nunes, now the subject of an ethics inquiry for his actions, subsequently handed over the reins of the committee's investigation of Russian election meddling to Rep. K. Michael Conaway (R-Tex.), but he has not recused himself from the inquiry.

Ian Prior, a Justice Department spokesman, said the department plans to "fully cooperate with this important congressional investigation". "This is more about uranium and whether or not the government actually functioned properly".

Nunes, who stepped aside from his panel's Russian Federation probe amid controversy in April, said the uranium inquiry was a separate matter.
