House Republicans are launching an investigation into Russian Federation and an Obama-era uranium deal, the intelligence committee's chairman announced Tuesday.

"We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time, but one of the things as you know that we're concerned about is whether or not there was an FBI investigation, and if so, why was Congress not informed of this matter", Nunes said.

However, the committee chose to start its inquiry following a report in The Hill that stated the FBI was investigating Russian Federation and the United States' nuclear industry, and were watching as Russian Federation was working to win access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, and their inner circle.

"I got a letter in response from Treasury Secretary [Tim] Geithner, saying this was getting full scrutiny", said King.

Clinton was not mentioned during the press conference as part of the Russian Federation investigation.

U.S. House committees are investigating why former President Barack Obama's administration allowed a Russian-backed company to purchase American uranium mines in 2010. Nine government agencies and a number of federal and state regulators approved the uranium deal.

On Tuesday, the House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee announced yet another Clinton-related investigation - the 2010 sale of a US uranium company to a Russian company, specifically whether there was an FBI probe of the matter and that was approved when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

Taylor calls the subpoena "an abuse of authority" given that the committee chairman who signed it, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, had stepped aside months ago from overseeing an investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

"This is nothing more than a charade and distraction from the ongoing crisis in the White House".

The two panels have declined to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 elections, leaving those probes to Senate committees and the House intelligence committee. Hillary Clinton said in an interview with C-SPAN this past week that the accusations were "baloney" and that it had been "debunked repeatedly".
