Hillary Clinton Subject of 2 New GOP Investigations

WH Trump Administration Has No Involvement With Puerto Rico Power Contract

Trump abruptly fired Comey in May, initially explaining his decision as a response to Comey's handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server.

The deal, involving the purchase of a company called Uranium One, was cleared when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

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.

A former spokesman for Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonChris Murphy's profile rises with gun tragedies DNC, RNC step up cyber protections Gun proposal picks up GOP support MORE's presidential campaign on Tuesday said that the GOP is "so desperate" for Democrats to be in power that it keeps acting like the opposition party.

The joint investigation by the two panels is now the second congressional inquiry into the FBI's handling of the Clinton investigation. "We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time".

The House Intelligence and House Oversight committees will be investigating the Obama administration's approval of the purchase by a Russian state-owned energy company of a Canadian company whose mines control 20% of the US' uranium supply.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump earlier this year, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Donald Trump releases 'Stand for the National Anthem' petition
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any of his players kneeling during the anthem risked being benched. "Again, we believe that our player should stand for the national anthem ".

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced the investigation into the deal at a news conference Tuesday.

Clinton herself on Monday described the controversy as "baloney" that has "been debunked repeatedly".

The panel's top Democrat spoke out against the uranium probe Tuesday, describing it as a "coordinated distraction" from the Russian Federation interference in the 2016 election, a subject the panel is investigating.

The line of attack was renewed recently after the Hill reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had found "substantial evidence" that Russian officials engaged in "bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering created to grow Vladimir Putin's atomic energy business inside the United States" before the Obama administration gave the deal the go-ahead.

Nunes said that he has not spoken to the White House about the matter. He claimed in October 2016 that Clinton gave uranium to Russian Federation "for a big payment", which the Washington Post later said was inaccurate.

In launching this new investigation, Nunes is adding congressional muscle to a right-wing narrative that has cast Clinton as cozying up to Russian Federation.
