Senator Chuck Grassley is calling for an investigation into possible “conflicts of interest” between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Russian government, following a bombshell report that placed the Clintons at the heart of Obama’s shady Uranium One deal.
“This committee has an obligation to get to the bottom of this issue,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Wednesday during Congressional hearings with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“I hear your concerns and they will be reviewed,” Sessions responded.
Grassley’s probe comes less than a day after the Hill released a new report that showed the FBI was aware of Russian infiltration of the American nuclear industry back in 2009; raising serious questions over why then-Secretary of State Clinton didn’t try and stop Obama’s controversial Uranium One deal.
The deal involved the 2010 approval of an agreement that would place large quantities of American uranium under the control of a Russian-backed energy corporation. The report shows large donations to the Clinton Foundation and other charities around the time of the deal.
“The donations raise concerns about potential conflicts of interest for Secretary Clinton and the Obama administration,” added Grassley.
