  • House GOP leaders to investigate FBI's handling of Clinton email probe

The committee has joined with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, led by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to issue a statement that they will investigate the FBI's investigation of Clinton.

Two more Republican-led congressional committees have launched investigations into a deal on selling part of U.S. uranium production capability to a Russian state-run energy company by the then Barack Obama administration.

Giustra has said he sold his stake in the deal in 2007, while Clinton and Barack Obama were vying for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Republican congressmen have launched investigations into several of President Donald Trump's longstanding political grievances about Hillary Clinton, including an FBI probe of her emails and her alleged role in a sale of USA uranium to a Russian firm.

Democrats on the House Judiciary and Oversight panels also criticized the new investigations, saying in a joint statement that another round of Clinton email investigations are a "massive diversion to distract from the lack of Republican oversight of the Trump administration and the national security threat that Russian Federation poses".

Nunes and other Republicans who announced the probe said they want to know more about whether Obama's Department of Justice was investigating the purchase of American uranium mines by a Russian-backed company in 2010.

Clinton's use of an unsecured server left her in violation of State Department policy to protect the nation's secrets. Congressional Republicans have since questioned how the deal was approved the following year by an inter-agency committee.

Comey criticized her for being "extremely careless" in his unusual public announcement explaining the decision not to refer charges to the Justice Department.

The Hill reported Democrats on the House committees were opposed to the investigation.

Some Republicans have said Mrs Clinton's State Department approved the deal after her husband's charitable foundation received a $145 million donation.

"That's your real Russian Federation story", he said.

All the new investigations address the President's longstanding grievances.
