Barrasso Seeks Documents Related to Russia Uranium Investigation

(Worthy News) – Sen. John Barrasso (R., Wyo.) is asking the Department of Justice for documents related to the FBI’s investigation into the Russia-Uranium One deal, which found evidence of Russian officials engaging in bribery, kickbacks, and millions of dollars flowing to the Clinton Foundation before the deal was approved by the U.S. government.

Barrasso has been raising concerns about the deal, which ultimately gave Russia control of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium supply, since 2010. The Obama administration ignored the senator’s requests for documents after the New York Times reported on Bill Clinton’s six-figure speaking fees in Moscow to a Kremlin-linked investment bank, and Uranium One donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation while the deal was awaiting approval from the State Department, then run by his wife, Hillary Clinton.
