The Republican leaders of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform panels said in a statement they were opening investigations into the FBI's handling of the Clinton email investigation and the decision not to prosecute her - the subject of hourslong congressional hearings previous year.

House Judiciary Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., and Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said the inquiry will be aimed at the FBI and its decisions in the Clinton investigation.

"Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales", Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a joint statement.

The DOJ Office of Inspector General is already probing the role of the DOJ and FBI in the investigation that led to no action in former FBI Director James Comey's famous July 2016 statement.

"These investigations were initiated on a partisan basis, and will shed no light on Russia's interference in the 2016 election, but then again they are not meant to do so", House Intelligence Committee ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a statement Tuesday.

The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country.

The House Oversight and Intelligence committees' investigation also resurrects allegations that Clinton or others in the Obama administration mishandled a government decision to green-light a deal giving Russian Federation control over a sizable percentage of the United States' uranium resources.

Conservative commentators on Fox News and fresh reports at The Hill have cast renewed scrutiny on the uranium deal, which Trump also brought up on the campaign trail, in recent days.

Nunes also reportedly added that he's spent weeks talking to "informants" on the subject, but the White House has nothing to do with his quest.

He had "temporarily" removed himself from matters relating to the Russian Federation investigation amid Democrats' allegations that he'd broken ethics rules in his panel's Russian Federation probe.

Comey, who was sacked by Trump earlier this year, could not be immediately reached for comment. The same week he fired Comey, the president told NBC News in an interview that he thought of the "made-up" story about ties to Russian Federation when he fired Comey. "We'll get the facts", Nunes told reporters during a press conference announcing the probe. Very hard. Because you start off at such a disadvantage. "This was an excuse for having lost an election".
