White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that the 2015 Uranium One deal under the Obama administration should be investigated.

“I think it’s doubly important that when these kind of accusations are made that they should be investigated,” Kelly said, pointing out that many Americans have lost faith in Washington.

Ingraham asked Kelly if the Justice Department should appoint another special counsel.

“I guess so,” he responded, but the chief of staff made clear he is not a lawyer.

“We need to find someone who’s very objective who can get to the bottom of these accusations,” Kelly said. “The American people have an absolute right to know these things.”

Recent reports suggested that Russian operatives tried to bribe the Clintons with millions in donations to their foundation in exchange for their approval of the deal.
