The two GOP lawmakers said they have questions about the FBI's decision to declare openly the bureau's investigation into Clinton's handling of classified information, while quietly investigating Trump campaign associates.
The Washington Post's fact checker reported previous year that although the State Department was one of several agencies that would have been able to approve the 2010 deal, "there is no evidence Clinton herself got involved in the deal personally, and it is highly questionable that this deal even rose to the level of the secretary of state". Notably, Nunes did not mention Clinton's name Tuesday as he announced his investigation - instead, he, DeSantis and Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.) focused on the involvement of then-Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, and the extent to which the Justice Department and the FBI had been scrutinizing the transaction or the entities involved. Nine government agencies and a number of federal and state regulators approved the uranium deal.
"The closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians", she said on C-SPAN, "the more they want to just throw mud on the wall".
The Republican-led probe from Nunes and oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy of SC concerns a 2010 uranium deal that was struck between the U.S. and Russian Federation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
The New York Times has previously reported that the chairman of Uranium One donated four times to the Clinton Foundation before and after 2010.
"We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time", Nunes said.

"Uranium deal to Russian Federation, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn't want to follow!" the President tweeted.
President Donald Trump repeatedly blasted the deal on the campaign trail, saying that Clinton "was paid a fortune" for setting up the sale. Later Trump suggested the firing was actually a response to the FBI's investigation of Russia's election year meddling.
Ian Prior, a Justice Department spokesman, said the department plans to "fully cooperate with this important congressional investigation".
The Uranium One deal involved selling part of a Canadian-based mining company to the Russian nuclear corporation Rosatom, giving the company control of more than 20 percent of America's uranium supply.
