Committee of the U.S. house of representatives began investigating the “uranium deal”
WASHINGTON, October 24 — RIA Novosti. The intelligence Committee of the U.S. house of representatives begins to investigate the agreement with Russia on uranium, which was concluded a few years ago, said the head of the Committee Devin Nuns.

The US President Donald trump said earlier that the family of the head of the election headquarters of Hillary Clinton, John Podestà profited from lobbying the transaction controlled by “Rosatom” company Uranium One.
In recent days, the media there are new reports that at the conclusion of the deals in 2013 were committed corruption crimes, which the previous US administration refused to investigate.
Earlier, Clinton was accused that she could be under the influence of Russia because of the donations that had been received by the Fund from the founder of Uranium One Frank Giustra.
Giustra donated to former U.S. President bill Clinton more than 31 million dollars after he visited the Kazakhstan and won the competition on development of deposits of uranium ore.
In addition, in 2008-2010, Uranium One donated to the Clintons in total of 8.65 million dollars. Finally, in 2010, bill Clinton received from an unnamed “Russian investment Bank” 500 thousand dollars for a speech in Moscow. According to media reports, the Bank served a deal to buy Uranium One Rosatom. Journalists of a number of American publications have concluded that the Clinton Foundation could get the money the Russian government paid to the founders of Uranium One.
