On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, White House correspondent Ed Henry broke down a Fox News poll showing Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton sliding in the polls after a series of scandals were revealed in Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash.”

Henry pointed to the latest Fox News poll showing her underwater in terms honesty and trustyworthiness.

“Amid the drip, drip of revelations about her family’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s image continues to take a hit,” Henry explained. “A new Fox poll found when asked if she’s honest and trustworthy — 45 percent say yes, 52 percent say so. Republican pollsters believe she’s missing a key ingredient that allowed former President Bill Clinton to survive one scandal after another.

Henry continued by going into detail about one controversy in particular involving the Russian government and its efforts to bolster its position in the international uranium market.

“Controversies like the sale of uranium to the Russian government during her time as secretary of state may not have helped,” he said. “In an interview with WMUR in New Hampshire, Clinton denied that a $500,000 speaking fee to her husband by a Kremlin bank and millions in contributions to the Clinton Foundation were tied to Russian President Vladimir Putin, getting a corner on the uranium market.”

“The former secretary telling WMUR quote, ‘I was not personally involved because that wasn’t something the secretary of state did,’” Henry said. “‘Clinton Cash’ author, Peter Schweizer scoffed declaring in an op-ed quote, ‘The transfer of 20 percent of U.S. uranium, the stuff used to build nuclear weapons to Vladimir Putin did not rise to the level of secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s time and attention?’”
