A US congressional committee has launched an investigation into the Donald Trump administration’s plan to transfer sensitive nuclear power technology to Saudi Arabia despite objections from national security officials.
The House oversight committee said in a report that several top Trump appointees, including his son-in-law, promoted the idea while having strong private commercial interests. The report noted that an inquiry is particularly critical because the administration's efforts on the subject appear to be ongoing. The committee warned that the move is a potential violation of the law. The White House has made no comments so far but the president’s intention to give Riyadh access to U-S nuclear technology is no secret. Last week Trump met with nuclear power developers to discuss building plants in Saudi Arabia.
