Fox's Gorka continues Uranium One smear, falsely claims Hillary Clinton was “chairman” of committee that approved deal

SEBASTIAN GORKA: Not only do we need it, there is legislation that is active today that says America should be absolutely self-sufficient on uranium. It is such a strategic asset that we must not rely upon anybody else.
