Barrasso Wants to Expand Uranium One Investigation

Senator John Barrasso is demanding answers today to a key question of the Uranium One investigation – whether the Obama administration intentionally misled Congress on uranium exports.

In a letter to Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Kristine Svinicki, Barrasso is seeking to expand the investigation into the Obama administration’s approval of the sale of Uranium One’s uranium recovery facilities in Wyoming to a Russian state-owned firm.

Barrasso pointed to misleading information provided by the Obama administration concerning the role of the Department of Energy in approving the export of uranium.
