The embattled chairman of the House Intelligence Committee announced on Tuesday that he has opened an investigation into a deal struck between the U.S. and a predominantly Russia-owned uranium company based in Canada, Uranium One, while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
"We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time", Nunes said.
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.
Republicans in Washington have announced an investigation into a uranium deal with Russian Federation negotiated by the Obama administration.
The deal in question involved a wealthy Clinton Foundation donor named Frank Giustra, who sold his uranium-mining company, UrAsia, to Uranium One in 2007, according to Politifact.
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.
The Washington Post's fact checker reported previous year that although the State Department was one of several agencies that would have been able to approve the 2010 deal, "there is no evidence Clinton herself got involved in the deal personally, and it is highly questionable that this deal even rose to the level of the secretary of state". But that effort went far, far beyond any schemes to help elect Donald Trump president. That approval has sparked controversy in part because of donations between 2009 and 2013 to the Clinton Foundation from people related to Uranium One.
The Justice Department has not yet responded to CNN's request for comment.
The investigation centres on Rosatom, the state-owned Russian nuclear energy company, which began buying shares in Uranium One - a Toronto based enterprise with interests in the U.S. - in 2009. Was there a DOJ investigation?
"Seven years ago this month, I raised these objections with the treasury secretary who said they were being fully investigated and we want to see what happened to that inquiry", said King.
