Special prosecutor to probe Clinton Foundation
Washington: The US Justice Department says it has asked prosecutors to examine alleged misconduct at the Clinton Foundation and the controversial Obamaera sale of a uranium firm to Russia, and whether a special counsel might be needed to investigate. Republican lawmakers in late October announced they were investigating the 2013 sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russian state-owned company Rosatom, which was approved by former president Barack Obama. The move gave Rosatom control of 20 percent of US uranium stockpiles, and was decided after Uranium One made several donations to the Clinton Foundation of former president Bill Clinton. The Justice Department responded to the Republican demands in a letter to House Judiciary Committee chairman Robert Goodlatte.
