Mitt Romney says that it "looks like bribery" took place in the sale of a uranium company to Russia while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.
The book by Peter Schweizer raises questions about donations from foreign entities to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees paid to President Bill Clinton, possibly in exchange for favors from the State Department.
The New York Times reported Thursday on the sale of a uranium company to Russia, which came as money flowed to the Clintons from those connected to the deal.

Romney said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show (video above) that he was "stunned" when he read the report on the uranium deal.
"It looks like bribery. I mean, there is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of, what, 20% of America’s uranium production to Russia, and then it was covered up by lying about a meeting at her home with the principals, and by erasing emails. And you know, I presume we might know for sure whether there was or was not bribery if she hadn’t wiped out thousands of emails. But this is a very, very serious series of facts, and it looks like bribery," he said.
Hillary Clinton's campaign has pushed back in recent days, characterizing the book as a political "attack" to damage her presidential candidacy.
The Clinton campaign denied that the new report shows any evidence of "undue influence" being exerted by Clinton.
"No one has produced a shred of evidence that Hillary Clinton ever took action as Secretary of State in order to support the interests of donors to the Clinton Foundation," said campaign spokesman Brian Fallon in a statement.
Chris Wallace joined "Fox and Friends" this morning to go over the latest reports contained in the "Clinton Cash" book.
