The campaign to investigate Hillary Clinton is based on no evidence, but is being instigated by President Trump and his allies to smear his former presidential opponent, asserts the Editorial Board of The Washington Post. Clinton selling Uranium to Russia and other stories have either been debunked or were widely exaggerated. The president is wrong to pressure government officials into focusing on this baseless matter. His accusation are politically motivated, to smear Clinton and create a scandal out of thin air. The way that Republicans have pursued this matter goes beyond the normal. There is no good reason to investigate Clinton.
Hillary Clinton has been involved in several shady activities that make a special investigation into her actions highly warranted, argues Greg Jarrett of Fox News. There is much evidence that points towards her using her position as US Secretary of State to sell Uranium to Russia, benefiting it and herself. She may have also violated the Espionage Act when she used a private email server that risked national secrets leaking. The notion that Clinton is being targeted unfairly or for partisan reasons is simply wrong. Crimes like these should not go unpunished, if she committed them. A special counsel will be able to bring the truth to light.
