Fox News Host Debunks His Own Network's Conspiracy Claims

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday slammed what she described as an "abuse of power" after reports that the Trump administration was considering a special counsel to probe the controversial 2013 deal that gave Russian Federation control of a large portion of the USA uranium supply.

"This Uranium One story has been debunked countless times by members of the press, by independent experts".

Hillary Clinton says that if President Donald Trump's threats to prosecute her over the Uranium One deal are fulfilled it will signal America's slide into authoritarianism.

During an exclusive interview with Mother Jones Wednesday, Clinton said reports that the attorney general had asked top prosecutors to look into appointing a special counsel to probe the sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation represented a "politicization of the Justice Department". "Now, here's the accusation", he said. Even if Hillary Clinton were somehow acting in response to donations to her foundation, it would be systematically impossible for her to have that much sway over the decision. The accusation first made by Peter Schweizer, the senior editor-at-large of the website Breitbart in his 2015 book Clinton Cash. In 2016, Mr Trump repeated these claims while running for President, citing them as an example of Ms Clinton's corruption.

He pointed out that $131 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation that are part of the accusations were given by one man, Frank Giustra, the founder of Uranium One, who sold his stake in the company in 2007-years before Clinton became secretary of state. Because the sale raised concerns about national security, it was subject to approval by the US government.

In an opinion piece for Fox News this week, members of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate Clinton or "step down".

Clinton calls Uranium One story a 'distraction,' warns of dictatorship

"It is far past time to thoroughly investigate this [Uranium One] deal, the Obama administration's actions, and the Clinton family's role", said California Rep. Scott Perry.

In an interview with Mother Jones, Clinton directly confronted the idea, which she said, if carried out, would oppose the American values that she promoted when she was Secretary of State.

"Another said, "(I) n 3 mts he argued Hillary's defense, how she had nothing to do with Uranium One and how Trump had lied about it. "She did not. A committee of nine evaluated the sale, the president approved the sale, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and others had to offer permits, and none of the uranium was exported for use by the U.S.to Russian Federation".

Smith said the accusations were 'inaccurate in a number of ways, ' one of the reasons being that 'the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction'. That effectively undermines any argument that the sale was a quid pro quo.

The committees "have questions. about the review and approval" of the sale of Uranium One - which owned 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies - by the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS, according to the letters.

"Get Shepard Smith off of Fox". Another called him "a lover of CNN especially Don Lemon", another out gay journalist.
