President Trump called for the House Intelligence Committee to investigate an agreement that allowed stakes in a uranium company with U.S. holdings to be sold to Russia.

"Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech money to Bill, the Hillary Russian "reset," praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!" the president wrote Monday night.

Trump was referring to 2015 reports on Russia's nuclear energy agency purchasing shares of the Canadian uranium company whose financier donated to the Clinton Foundation.

The State Department under Hillary Clinton was one of several agencies which signed off on the Uranium One deal.

Some of these ties were first discovered by author Peter Schweizer, who detailed them in the book "Clinton Cash" and in a Fox News special.

The donor, Frank Giustra, was involved with the Canadian company "Uranium One", in which Russia's Rosatom bought shares of in 2009.

When Rosatom petitioned to increase its share in Uranium One from 17 to 51 percent, the deal needed U.S. approval because it gave Rosatom control of part of the uranium production in the U.S.

Furthermore, Bill Clinton reportedly got $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian firm promoting the company's stocks.

Clinton was accused of "pay-for-play" conduct and "influence peddling" in the wake of the agreement, with Mitt Romney saying the deal "looks like bribery."

Clinton's presidential campaign dismissed the report in 2015 as "baseless" and labeled it a part of "partisan conspiracy theories" about the Clinton Foundation. 

President Trump also called out Clinton's former campaign chairman John Podesta, highlighting a new report about his stock holdings in a a Kremlin-financed company.

The tweets from Trump came amid new calls by Democrats for Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House intelligence committee, to step aside from the Russia probe. 

Nunes told Bill O'Reilly he was not "sneaking around" last week when he met with a source on the White House grounds before revealing that Trump associates were monitored in "incidental" surveillance.

"I’m sure the Democrats do want me to quit, because they know that I’m quite effective at getting to the bottom of things," he said.
