This is an “Outside Explainer” about the 2010 uranium deal republicans are using to muddy the waters about Russian connections. It comes from the respected factchecking organization, FactCheck.org. Now that the republican-chaired House committees on Intelligence (Rep. Devin Nunes, CA-22) and Oversight (Rep. Trey Gowdy, SC-04) have opened investigations, we expect to see a lot of smoke(screen) created. The explainer outlines the history of the transaction, the regulatory hoops it went through, and some of the principals involved.
