Hillary Clinton dismissed the bombshell Uranium One scandal that’s bubbling up as a “political stunt” by President Trump.
“The crazy allegations [are] a political stunt by the Trump administration and its allies to distract from the very serious information coming out about the Trump campaign’s connections with Russia,” Clinton told WABC Radio.
President Trump and several GOP leaders have called for an investigation into the 2010 sale of Uranium One, a Canadian mining company, to Russian nuclear agency Rosatom.
Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time, allegedly using her influence to close the deal in exchange for more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation.
The dicey transaction raised red flags then and now, but was largely swept under the rug by pro-Clinton mainstream media.

But Hillary claims she’s innocent of influence-peddling. “I had nothing to do with the decision,” she said.
Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, an attorney, said Hillary violated a number of federal laws with her Uranium One deal, including bribery, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
Jarrett said it’s high time the Clintons paid for their crimes. “The Clintons are escape artists that would make Houdini proud,” he told Fox News.
