In their newly announced investigation into the 2010 Russia uranium deal, the House Oversight Committee is seeking testimony from a "confidential informant" who was originally recruited by the Russians but then helped the FBI.

The two-time presidential candidate denies her involvement and dismisses the revelation that the Clinton foundation received millions of dollars from Russian nuclear officials while the Uranium One deal was being processed. "This is more about uranium and whether or not government actually functioned properly", he said.

The deal was approved by Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, which includes representatives of 16 U.S. departments and agencies, including the secretaries of the Treasury, State, and Homeland Security.

The investigation centres on Rosatom, the state-owned Russian nuclear energy company, which began buying shares in Uranium One - a Toronto based enterprise with interests in the USA - in 2009.

The two lawmakers are also seeking more details about what led Comey to reopen the investigation into Clinton in November, days before the election.

King told reporters that back in 2010, when he was the ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee, he and three other ranking members sent a letter to the Treasury Department, asking why a Russian-owned company would be allowed access to the nation's uranium supply. He, DeSantis and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., focused on the involvement of then-Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and the extent to which the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been scrutinizing the transaction or the entities involved. Since uranium is considered strategically important, the USA government and several of its agencies had to sign off on the deal, which they did.

What was the uranium deal?

The Hill's report - which was immediately picked up by conservative media outlets and characterized as "the REAL Russia collusion story" - also piqued the interest of Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen.

"Ten months into the Trump Administration and House Republicans still have not held a single substantive oversight hearing on clear abuses by the President or his top aides". He made those allegations after visiting the White House, leading Democrats to accuse him of coordinating his efforts with the Trump administration.

Nunes added that he has not spoken to anyone at the White House on the matter. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) arrives at a House interview with Jared Kushner - President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser - in July. He stressed that his focus, at the time of the deal and now, was primarily driven by concerns about "why 20 percent of the U.S.'s uranium supply was being given to a Russian-owned company".
