Get Ready, House Republicans Just Announced Devastating News For Hillary Clinton – Wow
Hillary Clinton is the subject of another congressional investigation. Two actually.
House GOP announced investigations into two Obama-era scandals that both involve Clinton. The first is the Obama Justice Department and FBI’s criminal investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of private email. The second is the controversial uranium deal which sold a large portion of America’s uranium to a Russian company, Rosatom nuclear. The deal was was done with the Obama administration’s approval in 2010. It is controversial due to the alleged kickbacks and dirty dealings that benefited the Clintons.
According to The Hill’s reporting on the matter:
Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The new probes come as Clinton has sworn off the controversies as “distraction and diversion” saying on CSPAN that “it’s the same baloney they’ve been peddling for years, and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.”
According to Fox News, the investigations will have some major teeth:
House Republicans on Tuesday launched new probes into several Obama-era controversies, covering both the Justice Department’s 2016 handling of the Clinton email case and the administration’s 2010 approval for the sale of a mining company that gave the Russians partial control over American uranium reserves.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced his committee and the House Oversight Committee will investigate the so-called Uranium One deal.
“We’re not going to jump to any conclusions, but we’re going to try and get the facts,” Nunes said.
Separately, the House oversight and judiciary committees announced a joint investigation into the Justice Department and FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe.
“Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said in a statement.
The decision will come as a huge news for president Trump who said last week that the Clinton uranium deal was the “real” Russian scandal.
