BILL O'REILLY: Accusations mounting that while secretary of state, Hillary Clinton used her position to enrich the Clinton Foundation by doing favors for foreign governments and corporations. If true, that would likely eliminate Mrs. Clinton from the Presidential race - - if true. Right now the evidence is circumstantial, not vetted, and the subject of wild speculation by anti-Clinton forces. But as we reported last night, when a corporation like General Electric says it will not make public e- mails sent to it by the State Department during a period of time when GE secured a big contract from the Algerian government, while donating generously to the Clinton Foundation there is something very wrong. GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt must know that there is an appearance of impropriety here. And he has an obligation to the shareholders of GE to avoid any taint of scandal. Thus Immelt should release those e-mails immediately. If he does not, the Justice Department should begin an investigation. A welcome greeting to the new attorney general Loretta Lynch who we believe is a person of integrity. In addition, there are charges that the State Department under Mrs. Clinton signed off on a deal that allowed the Russian atomic energy agency Rosatom to acquire a huge Canadian uranium company called Uranium One. Uranium One's chairman, a man named Ian Telfer donated almost $2.5 million to the Clinton Foundation much of it while the negotiations were taking place. Shortly before the deal was done, Bill Clinton received $500,000
