In this week’s opening segment, learn why Americans need to call for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Rodham Clinton or insist that the Department of Justice do its job. Clinton has committed what appears to be at least 13 felony crimes involving the sale of U.S. uranium, a chemical element used in nuclear weapons, to the Russians. Moreover, reports suggest that Mrs. Clinton could be charged with racketeering for using the Clinton Foundation as a criminal enterprise by accepting contributions totaling more than $100 million from nine foreign individuals associated with the Uranium One deal. And then there is the forwarding of top secret information on an unsecured server as Secretary of State, etc., etc. And indeed, all of these alleged crimes are considered a threat to the national security interests of the United States.
