AINSLEY EARHART (CO-HOST): Yesterday morning, top story was this investigation into the Clinton Cash -- Clinton Foundation and Russia, and Bill Clinton with his speeches. Well, the mainstream media really didn't cover it much yesterday and the president was bashing the mainstream media for that. What's your reaction?

JEANINE PIRRO: Well, this is something we knew about when Peter Schweizer came out with his book. Look, the big Russia story is the fact that Bill and Hillary Clinton, because of her position as secretary of state, were able to cash in on one of the biggest and one of the largest scandals that involved the United States and another foreign country, which just happens to be Russia. Now, my understanding is it wasn't $143 million. It was more than that that went from this Uranium One to the Clinton Foundation for the sale of our uranium to Russia. Russia now owns 20 to 25 percent of our uranium. Why is that significant? It's significant because uranium is used to make a nuclear weapon. And don't tell me it's just nuclear energy. You put your foot on the gas pedal and you can make a real nuclear weapon.

All right. Now, what we have got is a person who ends up in a disclosure agreement, not able to talk about the fact that bribery has been going on, and Loretta Lynch calls them up and says, “Look, you can't talk about the fact that the FBI was investigating Russia, and corruption, and kick backs all during the Obama administration. So, you've got money passing hands, you've got Bob Mueller as the head of the FBI, and you've got Loretta Lynch calling and saying, ” You cannot talk about this investigation we were doing." Hillary Clinton approving the deal. Hillary and Bill making money on the deal. And they are shutting down all of the information that we can get. Look, these people belong in jail. The evidence is there.

[...]

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Here's the thing. So, we know now the FBI actually investigating the corruption. They had somebody on the inside who was talking about what looks like bribery to everybody else. And, yet, the Obama administration went ahead and approved the deal, where they bought 20 percent of the uranium. But here's the thing. If the president were watching right now, all he has got to do to fix one of the things that's a problem for you, is all he has got to do is call Jeff Sessions and say "Mr. Attorney General, you need to go ahead, and the guy who is in the nondisclosure agreement, no reason to have that anymore. Tell us who it is, and have him testify.”

PIRRO: [Sen.] Chuck Grassley [(R-IA)] has said, “I want to hear from this guy.” Jeff Sessions can release him from this agreement that Loretta Lynch called him personally -- which shows how important it is -- and said, “we're going to put you in jail.” Normally, I have never heard of a witness being threatened, especially someone who is on the inside working for the government being threatened with jail if you say in front of Congress or anyone else --

DOOCY: This is the best way to get to the bottom of this story, by him doing that.

PIRRO: Look, Jeff Sessions not only needs to get rid of this nondisclosure agreement and allow this guy to talk. He needs to do a grand jury. Bob Mueller, we now know, is totally conflicted. He was the head of the FBI when this was going on. Jim Comey is totally conflicted from all of this stuff. The facts are clear. The whole Obama administration and the whole lot of them were involved in the biggest corrupt scandal is this history.
