House Republicans have announced that two new probes – both involving the Department of Justice – are being launched by the House Oversight Committee. The first probe, conducted in conjunction with the Judiciary Committee, will investigate the controversial allegations of private email usage by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as former FBI Director James Comey.
The second probe, in conjunction with the Intelligence Committee, will investigate actions taken by members of the Obama administration regarding a uranium deal with Russia that allegedly gave Russia control of over 20 percent of the United States’ uranium supply. Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the first focus of the probe will be to determine “whether or not there was an FBI investigation, was there a DOJ investigation, and if so, why was Congress not informed of this matter”.
