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.

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.
