Republican-led House committees to investigate Clinton's emails again

Hillary Clinton promotes her new book

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes announced Tuesday morning he will look into a Uranium deal struck by the Russians, at the direction of Vladimir Putin, while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

Additionally, the committees will investigate why former FBI director James Comey chose to notify Congress about the reopening of the investigation into Clinton's email server and the decision about whether to charge her.

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced the joint investigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Clinton herself on Monday described the controversy as "baloney" that has "been debunked repeatedly". "This may be good politics, but it is a disservice to the far more important cause of investigating Russian interference in our democracy and protecting our elections in 2018 and beyond from outside influence".

Announcing the Clinton-FBI probe, Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, both Republicans, stressed that Republicans can not be the only targets of investigations.

Earlier this year, Nunes temporarily stepped aside from the committee's Russian Federation investigation following a House ethics committee investigation into his handling of classified information, although he has continued to issue subpoenas for the probe, a sore spot with Democrats.

Sources told InTouch Weekly Jenner called it quits with Gamble as she reportedly prepares to welcome three more grandchildren. Well, apparently, the contract is set up so that the family can decide who gets what money-wise.

However, Democrats appear to be pushing back against Republicans regarding the uranium deal, saying it's a partisan ploy to distract from the ongoing investigations into the Kremlin's meddling in the 2016 election.

"Well, the current Russian Federation investigation is about the election. This is more about uranium and whether or not government actually functioned properly", he said.

The line of attack was renewed recently after the Hill reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had found "substantial evidence" that Russian officials engaged in "bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering created to grow Vladimir Putin's atomic energy business inside the United States" before the Obama administration gave the deal the go-ahead.

"We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time", the California Republican continued.

"One of the things that we're concerned about is whether or not there was an FBI investigation? So that will be the start of the probe".

Nunes also reportedly added that he's spent weeks talking to "informants" on the subject, but the White House has nothing to do with his quest.
