The New Indian Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
