The "Special Report" panel, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Charles Krauthammer, and Charles Lane, took on two of the biggest stories of the week.
The All-Star Panel discussed the explosive claims made in the new book "Clinton Cash."
Questions are being raised over the sale of a uranium company to Russia, which occurred amid donations from key players to The Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton campaign has denied that the new report shows any evidence of "undue influence" being exerted by Clinton.
Krauthammer said what strikes him about the report is the "unbelievable arrogance" of the Clintons, who act "in the full expectation they're gonna get away with it."
He noted that there may be no way to prove a "quid pro quo" took place, however, pointing to the fact that Clinton's emails are gone.
Judge Napolitano said the big question is whether U.S. foreign policy decisions were influenced by payments from foreign entities to The Clinton Foundation.
He said if the evidence is strong enough, the FBI "must commence an investigation into whether or not there was active or passive, known or unknown, bribery in this case."

The All-Star Panel also went over the accidental killing of two hostages, including one American, in a U.S. drone strike near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
The White House also announced that anti-terror operations killed two American al Qaeda suspects, Adam Gadahn and Ahmed Farouq.
Krauthammer, noting that hostages have been lost under past presidents as well, said that the accidental deaths of American Warren Weinstein and Italian Giovanni Lo Porto point to a lack of good intelligence.
"Obama decided he was going to be holier than thou, close Guantanamo, change our interrogations, put everybody in the civilian court where you can't interrogate. Our only option is to kill the terrorists. Well, a dead terrorist doesn't speak," said Krauthammer, adding this might be a result of a "drying up" of intelligence over the years.
Judge Napolitano repeated that even in the cases of suspected terrorists, the president is not allowed under the Constitution to "summarily" execute Americans.
"I condemn, in words as strong as anyone can muster, the idea that the President of the United States can be judge, jury and executioner for any American. The Constitution expressly prohibits it and we've fought every single war against tyrants so that that type of unilateral power in the hands of one person would never come here," said Napolitano.
He said that even in the cases of American al Qaeda terrorists, it's "a war crime."
