Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement regarding reports that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission authorized Uranium One to export a form of uranium known as yellowcake:

“Apologists for the Obama administration’s decision to green light the purchase of American uranium by a Russian-backed company have claimed that no uranium was actually exported, but today’s report contradicts that.  If this uranium was in fact exported then the danger to our national security is obvious.  This will be a major line of inquiry in our Uranium One investigation.”
