President Donald Trump wants to know why the Clintons aren’t being investigated for their ties to Russia.

In a series of tweets Monday evening, the commander-in-chief posed the question of why the House Intelligence Committee wasn’t “looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech money to Bill, the Hillary Russian ‘reset,’ praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company.”

Trump’s first reference—the “Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia”—refers to a series of deals from 2009 to 2013 that gave Uranium One, a Russian state-owned nuclear energy company, control over 20% of U.S. uranium extraction. However, as The Washington Post notes, it is unclear what role the former secretary of state played in the deal overall: “There is no evidence Clinton herself got involved in the deal personally, and it is highly questionable that this deal even rose to the level of the secretary of state,” reports the publication.

“Speech money” is a likely nod to the $500,000 a Russian investment bank tied to the Kremlin paid Bill Clinton for an address the former president delivered in Moscow. The “reset,” meanwhile, refers to Hillary Clinton’s attempt in 2009—largely viewed as unsuccessful—to improve U.S.-Russia relations.

Finally, “Podesta Russian company” refers to the The Daily Caller‘s recent allegations that former Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta failed to disclose to the federal government that he received 75,000 shares in a Russian-financed company the same month he took a job with the Obama administration.

Trump’s tweetstorm came as his own associates remain embroiled in investigations of what role Russia played in the president’s 2016 campaign. The latest revelation came earlier Monday when a sanctioned Russian bank disclosed that its executives had met Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner back in December. Kushner has agreed to testify before the Senate committee investigating possible Russian interference.
