Republican-led House committees to investigate Clinton's emails again

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. At first, the White House cited a harsh memo about Comey's performance from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as the justification - though Trump later said he would have fired Comey regardless of what the Justice Department recommended.

Bossie doubled down that those collusion allegations are "fabricated", but he argued the same can not yet be said of reports about the Clintons' involvement in the Uranium One deal.

On Tuesday, the two Republican chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees ― Rep.

Allegations surrounding the uranium deal resurfaced this past week when The Hill reported the FBI was investigating the donations and did not inform Congress. Russian Federation later assumed full ownership of the company.

Russia-Uranium One - The House Intelligence Committee and the House Oversight Committee will start a joint probe looking at the sale of a company to Russian interests that holds large amounts of uranium reserves in the United States.

Nunes has become a focal point of such efforts before.

In 2010, Rosatom, Russia's state-owned nuclear energy company, looked to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One after buying a 17% share in the company a year earlier. 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. "This is more about uranium and whether or not government functioned properly or not", Nunes said. "Me and President Obama, we are the ones they like to put in the crosshairs", Clinton said. But when asked whether he would brief the White House in the future, he would not commit to continuing to steer clear of the administration.

"This fact pattern raises serious concerns about improper political influence on the process by the Clintons during the Obama administration", Grassley said.

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

Ian Prior, a Justice Department spokesman, said the department plans to "fully cooperate with this important congressional investigation".
