House Intel Committee launches probe of Obama’s uranium deal with Russian company

The chairman of the House intelligence committee announced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding a 2010 deal that allowed a Kremlin-backed company to gain control of a huge chunk of America’s uranium supply.

House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes said he is working with the House oversight committee to learn whether U.S. authorities were investigating Russia’s atomic energy giant Rosatom at the time the U.S. government signed off on the deal.

“One of the things we are concerned about is whether or not there was an FBI investigation, was there a DOJ investigation and if so, why was Congress not informed of this matter,” Mr. Nunes, California Republican said Tuesday.
