Clinton and Obama Uranium One Deal Informant Lobbied for Russian Firm

Clinton and Obama Uranium One Deal Informant Lobbied for Russian Firm

Campbell provided information and documents to the Federal Bureau of Investigation while undercover inside a USA unit of Rosatom in Maryland.

The segment was surprising given that a number of broadcasters on Smith's own network have promoted the idea that Clinton broke the law in approving the sale to foreign buyers who also donated to her husband's foundation.

Campbell said he wants to testify out of concern for Russia's involvement in the US, and declined to elaborate.

President Donald Trump had publicly urged the Justice Department to look into Hillary's dealings with Fusion GPS, Uranium One, and Russian Federation.

The report said members of the committee, including Clinton, should have known about the investigation and it questioned why they would have approved it. He divested from the company in 2007, well before Ms. Clinton was named secretary of state and even longer before the company's sale was proposed.

Proponents of the wholly false theory, which has been exposed as incorrect by various fact-checkers, claim that nine people involved in the deal made donations to the Clinton Foundation which add up to more than $140 million. Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have for years claimed that Clinton approved the deal in a quid-pro-quo exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation. The charge originated in the book "Clinton Cash" by a senior Breitbart editor, and it has been repeated willy nilly by Mr. Trump and his supporters, particularly his sycophants on Fox News.

'The next year, candidate Donald Trump cited the accusation as an example of Clinton corruption'. The reporter noted the Clinton State Department did not possess the power to either veto or approve such a transaction.

He said that most of the donations to the Clinton Foundation were made by the founder of the Canadian company before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009.

The right says the Obama-era Uranium One deal and its ties to the Clintons are a smoking gun. They see her alleged role as a scandal, particularly amid charges the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election.

The segment infuriated Fox News viewers who demanded Smith be fired.

'I feel like [Fox News is] actually CNN (fake news) when Shepard Smith is on, ' tweeted another viewer.

She said if Attorney General Jeff Sessions decides to appoint a special counsel to investigate the deal, "nothing will come of it" but it will "cause a lot of bad consequences", like "demoralizing" the American people's opinions of the justice system.

Fox News made much of the revived scandal on Monday and the prospects of Sessions summoning general counsel to investigate. "She did not", he said.

She said the Trump administration was trying to change the subject from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump's presidential campaign and the Russian government.

These accusations, coupled with the problem of Ms Clinton using a private email server while she was secretary of state which was prohibited, sparked Republican crowds to chant "Lock her up" on the campaign trail.
