There isn't any "dead horse" as long as Hillary keeps going out there writing books and talking.

So, you are admitting that this bogus investigation is nothing more than an attempt to silence her. Thanks for pointing out the abuse of power.

Gee, the last I knew, it was the right of EVERY AMERICAN to freely go out and write books and talk ! When did that change ?

You Trumpees LOVE to thump the Constitution as if you read it daily, so why are you being selective in who can exercise the rights given in that document.

Just because Hillary has a different viewpoint than you, that does not give you the right to silence her, or anyone else. Nice try though, that is what your leader would want you to do.

Like Boss says, the Uranium One deal is a dead horse. Let it go, Republicans.
AG Sessions came right out and said there will be no Special Counsel as an investigation would require some "factual basis."

It wasn't much of a conspiracy tale to begin with. Not up to the usual standards. Has consistently been shot down by the facts. Even Rs are saying "give it up."

Yet it persists.

30 years of non-stop investigation. Zip, zero, nada. You idjits never give up, I'll give you that. Too bad it's such a colossal waste of my tax dollars for you to indulge your petty bitterness.

And she lost, wow I can only imagine the level rancor that would have been unleashed on all of us normal people CD posters by you foaming at the mouth conspiracy nut jobs had she won.

Repubs have no values that can not be discarded in the pursuit of power.

MAGA is nothing more than making this county into a third world hell hole. That is exactly what Trump is doing - using personal power for vengeance.

Repubs have abandoned their values and do not have any core, just like their master.

Trump wants to be a dictator so badly, it's creepy. That's why he gushed over Duterte last year and was happy to meet him this year. Trump wants absolute power that way.

Thank GOD that our founding fathers setup a gov't with a separation of powers to limit the capabilities of a crazy person like Trump.

I think investigating the Clinton's and Uranium One is an excellent idea. It is not going to result in any charges whatsoever.

How will Trump supporters rationalize the lack of indictments when the entire government is in GOP hands and they fail to provide anything but a dog and pony show for our money?

How many of you are aware that Uranium One is a Canadian Company and 8 government departments had to approve besides the state department?

"As PolitiFact has laid out in great detail, there is no direct evidence of a quid pro quo among Clinton, the State Department, Rosatom and the Clinton Foundation donors with ties to Uranium One. Clinton has repeatedly denied any involvement in the State Department’s approval of the Uranium One sale, insisting that such approval was granted at lower levels of the department and would not have crossed the secretary’s desk. Jose Fernandez, who was the assistant secretary of state for economic, energy and business affairs when the Uranium One deal was approved, told the Times that Clinton “never intervened with me on any [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] matter."

Beyond the State Department, eight other government agencies approved the Uranium One sale.

Want to hear it from Fox News?

Fox News' Shep Smith fact-checks his own network on Hillary Clinton, Uranium One - Nov. 15, 2017

The OP continues to provide springboards to destroy the GOP's own arguments. It is rather comical.
