Attorney General Jeff Sessions Considering Second Special Counsel to investigate wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial Sale of a Uranium Company to Russia



Fox News is reporting that Attorney 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. The Democrats can whine all they want, the questions is, why wouldn’t he? Why are the Clinton’s, Democrats and the Obama administration exempt from scrutiny? The questions is, who colluded with who? After a year of special counsel investigations by Mueller, there is nothing that ties the Trump campaign with Russia in some type of collusion during the election. But what if the Trump Foundation received $150 million form the Russian or one of Donald trump’s sons got speaking fees of $150,000 from the Russians? Think that would be big news? But that’s right, that was the Clinton’s who received such things from the Russians.

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.

The letter specifically mentioned allegations related to the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe, including allegations that DOJ and FBI “policies or procedures” were “not followed in connection with, or in actions leading up to or related to” then-FBI Director James Comey’s public announcement to close the Clinton email “matter” on July 5, 2016, or the letter he sent lawmakers on October 28, 2016, about newly discovered Clinton emails, and that those “investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.”


Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns — including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia — and has directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of the matters and report back to him and his top deputy, according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post.

The revelation came in a response by the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who in July and again in September called for Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate concerns he had related to the 2016 election and its aftermath.

The list of matters he wanted probed was wide ranging but included the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, various dealings of the Clinton Foundation and several matters connected to the purchase of the Canadian mining company Uranium One by Russia’s nuclear energy agency. Goodlatte took particular aim at former FBI director James B. Comey, asking for the second special counsel to evaluate the leaks he directed about his conversations with President Trump, among other things.

      This is all about the sale of strategic materials for atomic weapons and health services, nuclear medicine, to a nation that is not friendly to the United States.

      This whole deal smacks of the Rosenstiens sale of atomic bomb secrets to the Russians after WWII. Multiple people in the Obama administration should be investigated, including Obama himself. While the Clintons and their foundation appear to be the largest beneficiaries of this deal all that signed off on the sale probably benefited monetarily.

      We don’t trust, need or want Mueller, a person involved in the uranium deal with Hillary and appointed by Rosenstein to head the special council lynch mob. Fire him before he can destroy evidence and do more damage… He used Manafort and Gates to direct the attention in that direction away from the news of the uranium deal the very next day it was released.

      Two ex-FBI directors involved in Hillary scandals..

      They figured Hillary’s election would be the cover-up they needed…but it backfired so now it’s Mueller’s desperate attempt to aid in more corruption and deception.

      Trump needs to shut down this merry-go-round of make believe Russian collusion involving him, his family, his cabinet members…it’s all about criminals trying to pursue and destroy what they don’t have. Trying to rip Sessions to shredds over nothing. Instilling fear! So he won’t proceed with a second special council.

      We’re sick and tired of you dirty crooked, corrupt Democrats who under obama were destroying our country and we’re sick and tired of you today trying to destroy our administration… Valuable time and millions of dollars spent on nothing… absolutely nothing…trying to create a case when there isn’t one…there is no evidence, there is no proof, there is no crime…now shut the f**k up!. You’ll get your turn to speak up and plead guilty when we prosecute all your asses for the crimes we know you’ve committed against our country. Your the scum of crime and corruption.

      America is fed up with you!

      Sessions needs to do his job and not just consider a second special council but demand one. Actually we only need one special council get rid of Mueller.

      The crimes these people have committed are off the charts complied with a magnitude of unlawful acts that send you to prison. There are multiple crimes committed within a crime, the list is long.
