If there was ever an investigation that needed a Special Counsel, the Uranium One scandal has to be at the top of the list. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is now calling for one and there are a ton of reasons for there to be one appointed.
The foremost reason is that there appears to be bribery and payoffs involved in getting 25% of United States uranium signed over to Russian control. There are questions about the Podesta Group as well as what went on with the Clinton Foundation. Pay to play seemed to be the order of the day between signing off on the deal and large donations coming to the Clinton Foundation.
As Written By Peter Hasson for the Daily Caller:
The Department of Justice needs to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Obama-era Uranium One nuclear deal, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said on Tuesday.
In a statement posted to Twitter Tuesday night, Grassley called on “whoever in DOJ is capable” of appointing a special counsel to do so, noting that “‘whoever’ means if [you] aren’t recused.”

Grassley’s call for a special counsel follows new reports of Russian bribery operations secured approval for the deal. The Senate Judiciary Committee previously launched a probe into the deal, which was approved after Russia funneled millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and a Kremlin-linked bank paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 in speaking fees.
