'Would You Be Happy If Trump's People Did That?': Tucker Battles Dem on Uranium One Deal
Tucker Carlson asked former Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein whether he was bothered about the Obama administration allowing Russia to have access to a portion of America's uranium reserves.
Goodstein said that uranium is no longer a "dear commodity" because its worth as a power conductor has been weakened by the advent of large-scale domestic natural gas production.
"Kazakhstan is the biggest source of uranium on the planet," Goodstein said, adding that Russia is able to exert power over its neighbor and deals heavily with them in that regard.
He added that much of the domestic product in question simply traveled to Canada to be processed and was returned stateside.
He asked Carlson whether the landowners in Wyoming who sit on the largest Uranium One reserves in the country should not be allowed to capitalize on their situation.
Carlson said the Clinton Foundation encouraged Uranium One to hire Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign manager, to lobby the state department during the negotiation.
"When people hire lobbyists to lobby someone... they're expecting something in return," he said.
He said that Goodstein appeared to be fine with the government his party believes to be "seeking our destruction" to own our domestic uranium reserves.
"Would you be happy if the Trump people did that?" Carlson asked.
