Can conservatives explain again why Hillary is going to jail because Russians bought shares in a Canadian uranium company? When Russia...?
....sells us most of our uranium anyway? That's why the uranium wasn't taken back to Russia, lol.
Hillary was smoking a big cigar with her feet up on the desk laughing maniacally too of course.
GEORGE SOROS!!! lol.
This is your PRESIDENT saying this, not some idiot online keep in mind.

No uranium was sold and she was not in charge of the sale of the Canadian uranium company.
URANEUM WAS NOT SOLD TO RUSSIA
Trump repeated his misleading claim that Hillary Clinton “gave” Russia one-fifth of all U.S. uranium.
Trump: You know, they say I’m close to Russia. Hillary Clinton gave away 20 percent of the uranium in the United States. She’s close to Russia.
He’s wrong on several counts. The deal Clinton had a role in approving gave Russia ownership of 20 percent of U.S. production capacity — not existing stocks of uranium. Furthermore, Clinton alone could not have stopped the deal; only the president could have done that with a finding that national security would be endangered. Lastly, none of the uranium goes to Russia. That would require export licenses.
Trump was referring to Clinton’s role in the 2010 purchase by Russia’s nuclear agency of Uranium One, a Toronto-based company with mining operations in Kazakhstan, Tanzania and the United States, where the company’s operations amount to about 20 percent of annual U.S. production capacity.
The fact is — as we reported nearly two years ago — Clinton had no veto power to stop that deal. She was one of nine voting members on the foreign investments committee that unanimously approved it, a panel that also includes the secretaries of the treasury, defense, homeland security, commerce and energy, the attorney general, and representatives from two White House offices — the United States Trade Representative and the Office of Science and Technology Policy. (Separately, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission needed to approve (and did approve) the transfer of two uranium recovery licenses as part of the sale.)
Only the president could have stopped the sale, and only if at least one member of the foreign investment committee had objected. And even then, the president cannot prohibit a transaction without finding “credible evidence” that the “foreign interest exercising control might take action that threatens to impair the national security,” according to the federal regulation that governs such matters.
Finally, Russia may own the mines, but the uranium coming out of them stays in the U.S. As the Nuclear Regulatory Commission noted when it approved the sale, “no uranium produced at either facility may be exported.”
Trump made the same claim in slightly different words three times during his news conference. It’s a replay of a bogus accusation he made during last year’s campaign, when it was debunked by us and other independent fact-checking sites. But constant repetition doesn’t make a false statement true.

OOh I hope she does go to jail, but it won't happen. Please tell us why it was in our national interest to give up control of the raw material to make nuclear weapons to one of our greatest enemies?

She can go to jail for any of a number of crimes, including money laundering and racketeering, as well as putting classified info on an unsecured private server, and lying about it.

It's just the next controversy they invented because they're obsessed with her. If she did a fraction of the the crimes they accused her of, there would have something to show from all those investigations.
But no. Their guy is a failure, so they deflect to somebody who exited politics a years ago.

How can people with links to Russian financial interests and hedge funds tied to anti-American globalist George Soros conduct an independent investigation of the so-called Russia collusion of the Donald Trump campaign? The answer is, of course, they can’t. Robert Mueller, the special counsel named by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate possible ties between Trump and Russia during the campaign, has been an investor in the Mellon Optima L/S Strategy Fund, LLC for many years. Among its investments are a short position on Gazprom – Russian government-funded gas company – and a long position on Novatek — the largest non-state owned natural gas company in Russia and Gazprom’s competitor. According to Charlemagne Capital, the fund Mueller is invested in is based in the Cayman Islands and has a net-long position in the Russian markets. This means that Mueller gains financially if the Russian market does well. The OCCO Eastern European Fund also has long and short positions in Poland, Romania, and Kazakhstan. The fund’s prime brokers are Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse. Also holding Russian financial interests is California Democrat Representative Adam Schiff – the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee – who owns at least $16,000 worth of Russia-linked investments, according to his latest financial disclosure. He was also one of the leading promoters of the Russia-Trump collusion narrative early on. Mueller also has holdings in a hedge fund linked to the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme that left dozens of investors out millions of dollars and Madoff in prison. But the portion of the fund Mueller is linked to was never investigated by the FBI or the Securities and Exchange Commission. So in addition to evidence that Mueller as FBI director delivered samples of highly enriched uranium to Russia on behalf of Bill and Hillary Clinton in 2009, we now know that Rosenstein supervised the investigation of a 10-year Russian influence peddling/racketeering/bribery scheme that was silenced, pleaded down and all but concealed from Washington lawmakers responsible for overseeing such investigations. In other words, the people tasked with determining whether any of the Trump campaign team had any business dealings or colluded with Russia to help get Trump elected are highly compromised because they are neck deep in Russia investments and covering for Russia crimes. The foxes are literally guarding the henhouse.

They can't because no facts were presented to them, only the basic talking point was given to them.

The Russians backed a truck up to the State Department and Hillary Clinton loaded out 20% of our uranium on a dolly!
