The Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, just cleared a path for a second Special Counsel to investigate what really conspired during the Obama administration and the Uranium-1 deal. This could mean some unwanted attention to Clinton and the Russian collusion sham.
After all, once the Uranium-1 deal was complete the Clinton foundation received millions of dollars in ‘donations’ from Russia. We can also expect to see former FBI director James Comey, under the gun as he undoubtedly has to answer for not thoroughly investigating Clinton. Both Comey and Special Counsel, Robert Meuller should soon be receiving some much-needed scrutiny.
Jeff Sessions directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” requested by congressional Republicans, involving the sale of Uranium One and alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation, leaving the door open for an appointment of another special counsel.
In a letter first obtained by Fox News, the Justice Department responded to July 27 and September 26 requests from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and other committee members, who called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the matters in question.
The letter comes on the eve of Sessions’ testimony before the same committee, scheduled for Tuesday.
“The Attorney General has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote.
“These senior prosecutors will report directly to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General [Rod Rosenstein], as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel,” Boyd wrote.
The Justice Department does not ordinarily confirm or deny investigations, and Boyd wrote that “this letter should not be construed to do so.”
The Justice Department’s letter specifically said that some of the topics requested by Goodlatte and other committee members were already being investigated by the department’s Inspector General’s office.
