Obama uranium deal, Clinton emails targets of investigations in Congress

House Republicans flexed their investigative muscle Tuesday, announcing two investigations into Obama administration dealings, including a 2010 uranium deal and the FBI’s handling of the probe of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The investigations, which will be conducted by three committees, were launched after President Trump endured months of criticism and congressional inquiry into Russian interference in the election last year and speculation that members of the president’s campaign team colluded with Moscow.

Democrats were infuriated by the announcements, saying the investigations were partisan-fueled distractions meant to divert attention from the ongoing Russia matter.

Mr. Trump, though, has long called for these kinds of probes into his predecessor, Mr. Obama, and his Democratic presidential opponent, Mrs. Clinton.
