As panel questions Trump associates, GOP launches new probes

The chairmen said in a statement Tuesday they have several questions, including why then-FBI Director James Comey made a decision to publicly announce the investigation into Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information but not to publicly announce the investigation into Donald Trump's campaign associates. 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. Ousted FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke at length to Congress about that investigation previous year, and it's the subject of an ongoing review by the Justice Department's inspector general.

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.

Hillary Clinton may have lost the presidential election, but she hasn't lost the interest of Republicans.

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes said questions surrounding the potential Federal Bureau of Investigation probe would be front-and-center in the panel's inquiry.

The probe was announced by the committee's Republican chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, who stepped down from the investigation into Russia's election interference over concerns about his ties to the White House.

People magazine's royal correspondent, Simon Perry, also caught the dancing on video, so you can replay it all day long. Either way, the new arrival will be fifth in line to throne, bumping uncle Prince Harry down to sixth.

The investigations were sparked by a report from The Hill last week, which claimed the FBI had uncovered "substantial evidence" that officials with the Russian atomic energy agency had bribed an American uranium trucking firm called Transport Logistics International before the Uranium One deal was approved.

But President Donald Trump took an immediate interest in the story after The Hill published its report, tweeting on Thursday that the "Uranium deal to Russian Federation, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn't want to follow!"

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced the investigation into the deal at a news conference Tuesday. He claimed in October 2016 that Clinton gave uranium to Russian Federation "for a big payment", which the Washington Post later said was inaccurate.

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.
