Bossie: Sessions Must Appoint Special Counsel to Investigate Uranium One Deal
David Bossie said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must appoint a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal, because that's the only way to get to the bottom of it.
This comes amid renewed scrutiny of the controversial 2010 uranium deal, which gave Russia control of part of the uranium supply in the U.S. The deal occurred while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and questions have been raised about money routed to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton around that same time from Russian interests.
Hillary Clinton said reports about her ties to the Russian nuclear deal are "baloney," claiming that they have been "debunked repeatedly."
"I've heard her story before of, 'this is old news,'" Bossie said on "Outnumbered" today. "Jeff Sessions, who is a law-and-order attorney general, must appoint a special counsel for the Uranium One investigation. It has to happen."
Rachel Campos-Duffy said the American people are wondering why Sessions hasn't already taken that action. She said at the very least Sessions should lift an Obama-era gag order on a witness who claims he has information about efforts to bribe the Clintons in regard to the deal.
"The gag order was alarming, I think to everybody, no matter what side of the aisle that you're on," Jessica Tarlov agreed. "I think we should get to the bottom of all of it."
She noted, however, that Bossie is strongly pushing for a special counsel now when he was adamantly against the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Bossie doubled down that those collusion allegations are "fabricated," but he argued the same cannot yet be said of reports about the Clintons' involvement in the Uranium One deal.
