Clinton jabs Trump in first major post-election speech

The "uranium deal" which Trump mentions in his tweet refers to a debunked claim that Trump made throughout his campaign that, while Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was allegedly responsible for giving Russian Federation 20% of America's uranium in exchange for a payout.

He called the "Trump Russia story" a "hoax", even though FBI Director James Comey confirmed last week in a congressional hearing that his agency is investigating Trump-Russia ties.

As the Russian Federation scandal involving Donald Trump and his team advances - we learned last week that the FBI is conducting an ongoing counter-espionage investigation into the Trump campaign - the president has a creative response to the allegations.

When Rosatom petitioned to increase its share in Uranium One from 17 to 51 percent, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was involved in the "Russian Reset".

It's not the first time Trump has leveled these charges at the Clintons. The uranium line refers to Russia's nuclear power agency being allowed to buy the controlling stake of a Canadian mine company that also has USA operations, reports Politico. During this same period, a Russian investment bank tied to the Kremlin paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech in Moscow.

Trump wasn't quite done firing off tweets after making the allegations against the Clintons.

Republican state attorneys general have abandoned a years-old agreement between them and their Democratic counterparts not to target the other party's incumbent officeholders in elections, and have voted to spend money to help unseat Democrats in other states.

Trump's decision to go after both Republicans and Democrats in his tweet storm is a perplexing strategy for a president who will need every vote he can get as he begins to embark on a challenging quest to reform the country's complicated tax code.

Tensions rise in House Intelligence Committee probe
Nunes, who was a member of Trump's transition team, seemed contrite on Thursday for the timing and manner of his statement . He said the committee's hearing on Monday demonstrates how important it is that these inquiries be conducted publicly.
