The chairman of the House intelligence committee is launching a new probe into an Obama-era uranium deal as his panel interviews two witnesses key to its investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced the joint investigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. It is the second investigation launched by Republicans on Tuesday. The House Judiciary Committee also launched an investigation with the oversight panel into Obama's Justice Department and Democrat Hillary Clinton's emails.

The GOP announcements come as the House intelligence committee is interviewing President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and campaign digital director Brad Parscale Tuesday.

Democrats have said Republican focus on the uranium deal is an attempt to distract from the Russia probes.
