Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, announced on Tuesday they are opening an investigation into how the Justice Department handled its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while at the State Department. "We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time".
Democrats have said Republican focus on the uranium deal is an attempt to distract from the Russian Federation probes.
Minutes later Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a prominent Trump defender, announced an examination of the uranium story.
David Bossie said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must appoint a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal, because that's the only way to get to the bottom of it.
Nunes added that he has not spoken to anyone at the White House on the matter.
However, the committee made a decision to start its inquiry following a report in The Hill that stated the FBI was investigating Russian Federation and the United States' nuclear industry, and were watching as Russian Federation was working to win access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, and their inner circle.

NBC reports that Tony Podesta (the brother of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta) and his firm are the subjects of a criminal investigation by the special prosecutor.
Goodlatte and Gowdy are also calling into question the FBI's decision to "notify Congress by formal letter of the status of the investigation both in October and November of 2016".
In 2009, the state-owned Russian nuclear company Rosatom started buying shares and then sought to assume a majority ownership in Uranium One, a Toronto, Canada-based industry with United States interests.
Allegations surrounding the uranium deal resurfaced this past week when The Hill reported the FBI was investigating the donations and did not inform Congress. But that effort went far, far beyond any schemes to help elect Donald Trump president.
In launching this new investigation, Nunes is adding congressional muscle to a right-wing narrative that has cast Clinton as cozying up to Russian Federation.
"And in fact when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won", he said in the May interview.
