On MSNBC’s Am Joy, a guest who had previously had her talking points about Hilary Clinton and Uranium One systematically destroyed by host Joy Reid, returned to plead her case and it didn’t go any better for her than it did the first time.
In October, Washington Examiner contributor Jen Kerns sat through a point by point destruction of the Uranium One “scandal” which conservatives believe implicates former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of treason for turning over uranium to Russia in return for her contributions to her Clinton Foundation.
Kerns appeared again on Saturday morning to insist that Republicans should start up another investigation of the deal, at one point saying the since debunked scandal is on the level with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
After rehashing points she made on her previous appearance with Reid on Uranium One, Kerns was asked by the host, “Do you think it’s legitimate for your tax dollars to be spent on that investigation?”
“I think,” Kerns said as she began to duck the question only to be cut off by Reid who pressed, “Yes or no?”
“You can’t have it both ways,” Kerns stated. “You can’t say we ought to allow Robert Mueller –.”
“Hold on,” Reid shot back. “One of these investigations is about the interference in an American election. The other is about a long dead deal. All of the Clinton part’s of it are years divorced from this deal.”
“The fact is that you’re saying that you think it is just as legitimate to spend your tax dollars on a fishing expedition to drag Hillary Clinton through the mud and the Obama administration,” Reid accused. “You don’t think the Mueller investigation is more important than that?”
“I think they’re equal,” Kerns retorted. “They both have to do with Russian collusion, it’s not a dead issue. A report by the Telegraph in the U.K. — British intelligence officials shared with the Telegraph that there was concern as recently as November of this past year that Russia for several years had been instrumental in helping both North Korea build and accelerate their nuclear programs.”
Reid then pointed out that the Telegraph story had nothing to do with Uranium One, before adding that the uranium involved in that deal was only suitable for energy production.
