Letter: Clinton uranium story is false

I must respond to the letter: Buying influence from Russia submitted by Earl Pederson.

He writes, "Why would the Russians want to collude with the Trump campaign when Hillary Clinton already had sold 20 percent of our uranium to the Russians?"

This story is false. If you have any doubts, do a simple Internet search and you will find this has been debunked by numerous reputable sources including CNBC, Factcheck, Politifact, Snopes, Vox, and so on.

I'm disappointed the West Central Tribune prints these knowingly false right-wing conspiracy theories.

We do, however, know that the Russian government did interfere in the 2016 election. We also know that members of the Trump campaign are being investigated for colluding with Russia. The question is who will be indicted for treason.
