Fox News' Shep Smith Methodically Debunks Uranium One Conspiracy Theories

Fox News' Shep Smith Methodically Debunks Uranium One Conspiracy Theories Fox News' Shep Smith Methodically Debunks Uranium One Conspiracy Theories

With Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee pushing Attorney General Jeff Sessions today to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton's involvement in the deal, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith devoted a few minutes this afternoon to breaking down the facts of the deal.

"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.

"The accusation is predicated on the charge that Secretary Clinton approved the sale".

"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", he said.

As Shep also points out, those ranting about the Uranium One deal also maintain that Hillary approved the sale of the uranium as a quid pro quo.

Please note: This is a commentary piece.

Jordan returned to the network this morning to appear on "Fox and Friends" and repeat his call for an investigation into former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey and Fusion GPS, the firm that was contracted to compile opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump. Another Tweet said of Smith: "He is a smartass that needs to be on CNN".

Smith's critique, which called President Donald Trump's accusations against Clinton "inaccurate", was triggered by renewed calls from Republicans on Capitol Hill for a special counsel to investigate Clinton.

The matter took on new life after a report last month said the FBI was investigating possible Russian attempts to influence the U.S. nuclear sector at the time the CFIUS was considering the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom.

"Most of those donations were from one man, Frank Giustra, the founder of the company in Canada", said Smith.

The report said members of the committee, including Clinton, should have known about the investigation and it questioned why they would have approved it.

Smith called the statement "inaccurate in a number of ways", and noted that "the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction". The Clinton Foundation did not disclose those donations.

Smith used the fervor on Tuesday, which included a call from conservative lawmakers to appoint a special counsel to investigate the deal, to throw cold water on any hopes of catching Clinton or others in the former Obama administration in a grand Russian Federation scheme.

After Smith's segment on the Uranium One conspiracy theory Tuesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson ran a piece on his show titled "Real Russia Scandal" with a picture of Clinton.

'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 United States to Russian Federation'. No one expected a similar debunking from Fox.

Last night, it was reported that Sessions had directed his top prosecutors to evaluate whether a special counsel would be needed in a probe of Uranium One and Clinton.
