Fox News Host Debunks His Own Network's Conspiracy Claims

"Taking myself out of it-this is such an abuse of power. It goes right at the rule of law".

Sessions said Monday that prosecutors were looking into whether a special counsel should be appointed to investigate Republican concerns.

Jordan returned to the network this morning to appear on "Fox and Friends" and repeat his call for an investigation into former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey and Fusion GPS, the firm that was contracted to compile opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump.

Smith also said it is not known whether Clinton had participated directly or not.

She said if Attorney General Jeff Sessions decides to appoint a special counsel to investigate the deal, "nothing will come of it" but it will "cause a lot of bad consequences", like "demoralizing" the American people's opinions of the justice system.

Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (NASDAQ:FOXA)
Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. on 9/29/2017 reported its EPS as $0.53 with the analysts projecting the EPS of the stock as $0.49. This number is based on a 1 to 5 scale where 1 indicates a Strong Buy recommendation while 5 represents a Strong Sell.


During Tuesday night's broadcast, Smith succinctly debunked Republicans' claims that the Obama administration and the Clinton-led State Department approved a deal allowing a Russian company to buy a Canadian company with mining interests in the U.S. in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation. But there's no evidence that Clinton acted inappropriately.

He added that an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant claimed to have information about possible bribery surrounding the deal, but former Attorney General Loretta Lynch threatened him with prison time if he spoke out.

The Uranium One deal caught new fire as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and the country's possible ties to the Trump campaign began to gain steam last month when three members of the campaign were handed various charges.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith did an on-air fact check of a conspiracy theory surrounding Hillary Clinton and Uranium One, according to CNN. "A committee of nine evaluated the sale, the president approved the sale, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and others had to offer permits, and none of the uranium was exported for use by the USA to Russian Federation".

Smith went on to add that "the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction" due to the many other departments involved.

But the story has been debunked by multiple media outlets already.

On Wednesday, it was announced the Trump administration was considering carrying out this promise and ordering a probe into Clinton's activities.

Trump has pressed for an investigation of Clinton in recent weeks as his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted on charges of money laundering.

Late last week, members of the Freedom Caucus argued in congress that the Uranium One deal disqualifies special counsel Robert Mueller from leading the investigation into whether the Trump campaign assisted Russian Federation in its efforts to interfere in the 2016 election.

We made a decision to clear up the issue by making a simple diagram that shows how the sale of Uranium One worked and then overlaying it with the conspiracy theory that many Republicans have been pushing.

Clinton suggested that if the Justice Department moves ahead with an investigation it would be "a signal that we're going to be like some dictatorship, some authoritarian regime where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated". "It could do neither", Smith said.
