During an interview with the Fox Business Network, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) raised the possibility that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is under investigation for his role in the Uranium-One scandal.

Gohmert: “Rosenstein could very well be under investigation. There is a full investigation into Uranium-One, which he supervised, which he soft-peddled to allow Hillary to get her colleagues to approve the sale of uranium to Russia through Uranium-One. So, I have no problem with impeaching Rosenstein. He is a problem. He needs to step down. But, he’s not going to because he’s got to cover for himself and for Mueller in the Uranium investigation.”
As The Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft previously reported, prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin, says a report by The Hill.
From the report we found out that the investigation was supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who is now President Trump’s Deputy Attorney General, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who is now the deputy FBI director under Trump. We also know that Robert Mueller was the Head of the FBI at this time and he even hand delivered uranium to Russia on an airport tarmac before the Uranium One deal went through.
The Hill‘s John Solomon reported that the Obama Justice Department failed to call on the deal’s secret informant, William D. Campbell, when it came time to charging former Russian uranium industry executive Vadim Mikerinn.
“While he was Maryland’s chief federal prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office failed to interview the undercover informant in the FBI’s Russian nuclear bribery case before it filed criminal charges in the case in 2014, officials told The Hill,” reports Solomon.
“I’ve never heard of such a case unless the victim is dead. I’ve never heard of prosecutors making a major case and not talking to the victim before you made it, especially when he was available to them through the FBI,” Alan Dershowitz told The Hill.
