WorldnBrief: Probe in Russia-US Uranium Deal, Conservative Win in Austria, and More

House and Senate Launch Investigation in Obama-Russia Uranium Deal

The tables are turned on the Democrats in America after their failed Trump-Russia collusion propaganda as both the US house and senate have launched investigations into a 2010 deal approved by the Obama administration, giving a Russian-backed company rights to America’s uranium.

Though leftist mainstream propaganda media has been silent on the issue, the problem at the core for democrats is big and potentially devastating with a possible criminal investigation digging into their role in allowing Russians access to America’s uranium. The most interesting part of the scandal is the fact that Hillary Clinton was US Secretary of State then and the Clinton Foundation received big donations from some investors in the Russian-backed company—something that is being seen by critics as kick-back money for the deal.

Young Conservative’s Election Victory in Austria

Last week a conservative politician Sebastian Kurz, 31, won the parliamentary election in Austria. The leader of Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), he secured over 31 percent votes which is insufficient for forming government. Accordingly, he is in talks with like-minded conservative party—the FPO—that shares his stance on immigration.

As the incoming chancellor of Austria, Kurz is seen as a leader who would take measures to protect borders and possibly follow Brexit, i.e., move away from the European Union. Kurz became Europe’s youngest foreign minister at age 27.
