Go Ahead. Make Clinton’s Day 16.11.2017 American Prospect

Republican attacks on Clinton, however, will surely continue. Republicans are having great fun rehashing conspiracy theories about Clinton’s supposed role in a uranium deal with the Russians, and casting her campaign’s run-of-the-mill opposition research and joint fundraising activities as somehow illegal.
