In an effort to change the conversation from the many scandals engulfing the Trump White House, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced the launch of a new congressional probe of Russian interference in the presidential election — but this time targeting Hillary Clinton.
The House Intelligence Committee chairman, who stepped away from the congressional probe of President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia, said the panel has been investigating the so-called Uranium One deal for a while.
According to report published by The Hill last week, the FBI had been investigating Russian nuclear officials who allegedly engaged in bribery and extortion before the sale was approved by the Obama administration.
Nunes said he wants to know whether the FBI had been investigating the former Secretary of State and, if so, why Congress had not been briefed on the probe.
Nice try, Nunes.
