Trump Calls Uranium One Deal ‘Watergate Modern Age’

President Trump weighed in today on the Uranium One deal struck under former President Obama’s administration, and called it “Watergate modern age.”

The 2010 deal resurfaced in the news after a report last week from The Hill and a lot of subsequent coverage on Fox News.

Just yesterday House Republicans announced an investigation into that Obama-era deal, and last week Trump called this “the biggest story that Fake Media doesn’t want to follow!”

And today, during remarks to reporters, Trump said it was “so underhanded” and called it “Watergate modern age.”

Months ago when Sean Hannity talked about Uranium One, he said, “If Donald Trump did it, I guarantee you that what is now an eight-month-no-evidence conspiracy, it would be Watergate on steroids.” And on Fox Business recently, Gregg Jarrett invoked Watergate while talking about Uranium One with Lou Dobbs.
