During an appearance on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said he was shocked by the newest allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, saying “there was every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed.”

“I assume you had the chance to read the Jo Becker, Mike McIntire piece today in The New York Times about the cash flowing to the Clinton Foundation went from the Russians as they got control of Uranium One,” Hewitt began. “What was your reaction to this story?” (VIDEO: Clinton Foundation Caught Straight-Up Lying To New York Times Reporter)

“Yeah, I’ve got to tell you, I was stunned by it,” Romney replied. “I mean, it looks like bribery. I mean, there was every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of 20 percent of America’s uranium production to Russia.”

“And then it was covered up by lying about a meeting in her home with the principals, and by erasing emails,” he continued. “And I presume we might know for sure whether there was or was not bribery if she hadn’t wiped out thousand of emails. But this is a very, very serious series of facts, and it looks like bribery.” (VIDEO: MSNBC Host: Hillary’s Emails Were ‘Designed To Defy The Law’)
