AG Sessions Appoints Federal Prosecutor U.S. Attorney Huber to Evaluating Alleged FBI, DOJ Wrongdoing … No Second Special Counsel Appointed
NO 2ND SPECIAL COUNCIL? HOW THE HELL IS SOME ONE SUPPOSED TO INVESTIGATE THEIR BOSS?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed federal prosecutor U.S. Attorney Huber to investigate and evaluate certain issues involving the FBI, the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One. However, Sessions states he is not appointing a second special counsel, at least at this point. AG Sessions has been a major disappointment. One has to ask, how can a federal prosecutor actually investigate their boss? Huber will be investigating Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, how exactly does that work? It is obvious that an independent council is needed to investigate the FBI and AG’s office, that individual cannot be a part of the swamp.
President Trump, please fire AG Sessions and replace him with a pitbull. If there was ever a time where a special council should be appointed, this would be it.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Thursday a federal prosecutor was evaluating certain issues involving the FBI, the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, but said he would not appoint a second special counsel at this point. In a letter directed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, House
Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Sessions revealed that he asked U.S. Attorney John Huber to lead the evaluation into issues raised by the committees in recent months.
“I write in response to recent letters requesting the appointment of a Special Counsel to review certain prosecutorial and investigative determinations made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017. I take the concerns you raise seriously,” Sessions wrote, noting how important it was that the American people and Congress had “confidence” in the Justice Department.
“While we continue to believe the appointment of a second Special Counsel is necessary, this is a step in the right direction. We expect that U.S. Attorney Huber, given his reputation, will conduct an independent and thorough investigation. Such an investigation is critical to restoring the reputation of both the Bureau and DOJ in the eyes of the American people,” Goodlatte and Gowdy responded in a statement.
Sessions referenced a November 2017 letter sent by Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, first reported by Fox News, directing 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.
On Nov. 13, 2017, 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.”
