Chuck Grassley Calls For Special Counsel To Investigate Russian Uranium Deal


Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said on Tuesday that the Department of Justice (DOJ) needs to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal approved under the Obama administration.

In a tweet, Grassley wrote, “Whoever in DOJ is capable w authority to appoint a special counsel shld do so to investigate Uranium One ‘whoever’ means if u aren’t recused.”

Grassley’s demand for a special counsel comes after multiple reports surfaced last week that claim the FBI knew that Russian officials were engaged in “bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering” before the Obama administration — including Hillary Clinton’s State Department — approved the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. The Obama administration, including Clinton, insisted that there was no such evidence of wrongdoing by the Russians at the time.
