US House panels probing Justice Department actions in 2016 campaign

The announcement comes at the same time the House intelligence committee and the oversight committee announced a joint investigation into an Obama-era uranium deal.

Several of the questions appear to be tied to the FBI's investigations into both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

House committees will investigate Justice...

Nunes, who has continued to operate at the fringes of House Intel's Russian Federation probe despite stepping down from leading it in April, said at a press conference Tuesday that he had not had any communications with the White House about the new uranium probe.

Along with the House House Oversight Committee, Nunes said the probe will look into whether or not there was an FBI investigation of the 2010 sale of a United States uranium company to a Russian company, and if so why Congress was left in the dark about it.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said in a joint statement that decisions by the department during President Barack Obama's final year in office led to a "host of outstanding questions".

The Washington Post's fact checker reported previous year that although the State Department was one of several agencies that would have been able to approve the 2010 deal, "there is no evidence Clinton herself got involved in the deal personally, and it is highly questionable that this deal even rose to the level of the secretary of state".

"The current Russian investigation is about the election". He claimed in October 2016 that Clinton gave uranium to Russian Federation "for a big payment", which the Washington Post later said was inaccurate.

"I would refer back to the statement that I originally sent out as my relationship with the Russian Federation investigation", Nunes said as he faced repeated questions about whether he has stepped aside from that probe.

DeSantis told reporters that a confidential informant wants to discuss his role in the deal to Congress. Was there a DOJ investigation? He made those allegations after visiting the White House, leading Democrats to accuse him of coordinating his efforts with the Trump administration.

The Republicans on Tuesday said that they had been interested in the deal for a while, but new information about had prompted them to announce the investigation.

He also noted there's concern about a whistleblower who signed a non-disclosure agreement.

The Justice Department has not yet responded to CNN's request for comment.
