  1. Will Transparency Issues Hurt Clinton?

    Reports today suggest that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, played a role in Russian energy agency Rosatom assuming control of Canada’s Uranium One, which controls a fifth of America’s uranium production. While the State Department was just one of many agencies signing off on the deal, the report alleges that the transaction coincided with Uranium One’s chairman donating $2.35 million — not publicly disclosed — to the Clinton Foundation. Her campaign dismissed the allegations as “absurd,” but transparency issues surrounding the foundation’s funding are likely to dog Clinton’s presidential bid.
