Watch Live: AG Sessions To Be Grilled By Senate Judiciary On Russian Nuclear Bribery Case

Earlier this morning we learned that the Senate Judiciary Committee has finally decided they're going to take a look into a shady deal that handed Russia 20% of America's uranium reserves, was approved by the Obama administration during an ongoing FBI investigation into charges of bribery, extortion and money laundering by the Russian buyer and netted the Clintons millions of dollars in donations and 'speaking fees."  Per The Hill:

The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a full-scale probe into a Russian nuclear bribery case, demanding several federal agencies disclose whether they knew the FBI had uncovered the corruption before the Obama administration in 2010 approved a controversial uranium deal with Moscow.

 

"It has recently come to the Committee’s attention that employees of Rosatom were involved in a criminal enterprise involving a conspiracy to commit extortion and money laundering during the time of the CFIUS transaction," Grassley wrote in one such letter addressed to Sessions.

 

"The fact that Rosatom subsidiaries in the United States were under criminal investigation as a result of a U.S. intelligence operation apparently around the time CFIUS approved the Uranium One/Rosatom transaction raises questions about whether that information factored into CFIUS’ decision to approve the transaction," the chairman added.

As it turns out, all these new revelations surfaced just ahead of Jeff Sessions' previously scheduled appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  All of which provides the perfect opportunity for some Wednesday fireworks on The Hill.
