President Trump took to Twitter on Monday evening to say that stories regarding his transition team’s alleged connection to Russia are a “hoax.”

He said that the House Intelligence Committee should instead be investigating the Clinton Foundation’s connection to Russian state-owned Rosatom (an energy company) and Uranium One, a mining company once owned by Clinton Foundation patron Frank Giustra, a Canadian businessman.

Uranium One owned a large portion of uranium deposits in the U.S. and was transferred to the state-owned Russian atomic agency in 2010.

According to reports, much of America’s uranium production went “under the control of a Canadian company with extensive Clinton ties” while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.

The president charged that the Clinton Foundation had made a deal with the two companies which essentially placed one-fifth of U.S. uranium interests into Russian hands when Uranium One was taken over by the Russian government in 2010. The sale of Uranium One for $1.3 billion to Russia was finalized in 2013 and the transaction was reviewed by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.

“Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech….,” Trump wrote in one tweet.

He continued: “…money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!”

Allegations of inappropriate connections between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence officials have dogged the administration despite the fact that no evidence has emerged to support those allegations.
