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

WHATS GOOD FOR INVESTIGATIONS OF DONALD TRUMP AND THE RUSSIANS SHOULD BE GOOD FOR THE GANDER AND THE CLINTON’S AND THE RUSSIANS AS WELL

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.”

WAPO:

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.

Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile Says About the Clinton Campaign: ‘It Was a Cult, I Felt Like It Was a Cult’ (VIDEO)

MORE DEVASTATING COMMENTS FROM DONNA BRAZILE REGARDING HILLARY CLINTON AND HER CAMPAIGN

Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile appeared Wednesday on The Morning Joe to discuss her new book, Hacked, that is exposing the underbelly of the beast known as the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s dirty and unethical tricks. Donna Brazile was asked, why did she, Hillary, ultimately lose the 2016 presidential election. Brazile admitted that Hillary’s arrogance is what caused her to lose the election and that her campaign was like a cult. Brazile said, “Yes, Joe, it was a cult. I felt like it was a cult. You could not penetrate them.” Brazile went on to say that she’s a grassroot organizer yet didn’t have the resources to do her job because of Hillary’s control of the money.

Brazile has been like a one woman wrecking crew with exerts from her new book, exposing the dirty little secrets of the DNC and Hillary’s campaign.

Via The Washington Examiner:

Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile said Hillary Clinton’s campaign was like a “cult” that became impossible to persuade that it needed to reach out to other states that Donald Trump eventually won.

“It was a cult,” she said on MSNBC. “I felt like it was a cult. You could not penetrate them.”

FBI Confidential Informant in Obama-era Russian Nuclear Bribery OK’d to Testify Before Congress by DOJ

NOW IT GETS INTERESTING, THINK THERE ARE SOME FOLKS SQUIRMING IN THEIR SEATS RIGHT NOW?

It has been a long time in coming, the FBI informant with knowledge of Russian corruption and bribery in the Uranium One deal during the Obama administration has been given the okay to testify to Congress. According to Victoria Toensing, the attorney for the FBI informant, “the FBI has informed me that they are releasing my client from his [nondisclosure agreement] so that he can testify to Congress about his work uncovering the Russian nuclear bribery case and the efforts he witnessed by Moscow to gain influence with the Clinton’s in hopes of winning favorable uranium decisions from the Obama administration.” As reported at The Daily Caller, the Republican chairmen of two House committees announced Tuesday they’re launching a probe into the Uranium One deal and the Obama-era DOJ’s investigation of the deal.

DOJ allows FBI informant to testify to Congress

The Justice Department on Wednesday night released a former FBI informant from a confidentiality agreement, allowing him to testify before Congress about what he witnessed undercover about the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favorable decisions during the Obama administration.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed to The Hill a deal had been reached clearing the informant to talk to Congress for the first time, nearly eight years after he first went undercover for the FBI.

“As of tonight, the Department of Justice has authorized the informant to disclose to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as one member of each of their staffs, any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation,” she said.

The man’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, told The Hill on Wednesday night that the FBI sent her a formal letter saying it no longer had any reason to ask the informant to keep his work confidential, clearing the way for him to potentially testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Intelligence Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

The committees are keen to learn what the informant knows about any Russian efforts to curry favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton, to win Obama administration approval for Moscow’s purchase of large uranium assets in the United States or to secure billions in new uranium sales contracts with American utilities.

Hillary Clinton Campaign and DNC Paid for Research Behind Russia Dossier (VIDEO)

HILLARY CLINTON PROVED TO BE A LIAR ONCE AGAIN … MORE CLINTON COLLUSION!

THIS IS HUGE!!! Oh the irony, for months and months the Clinton campaign has blamed the Russians for losing the election. Now it appears that the Clinton campaign and the DNC who funded the Russian dossier … BOMBSHELL from the WAPO. Marc E. Elias is a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign as well as the DNC, and made the decision to work with Fusion GPS in April 2016. This after Elias had vigorously denied any such involvement. NY Times reporter, Maggie Haberman, also does not seem to be too amused with being lied to regarding the Trump dossier. Haberman tweeted, “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year.”

The question might be after all this time, why did the the Clinton campaign and DNC admit to funding Fusion GPS and the dossier? Could it be because Fusion GPS is having their bank records subpoenaed? Is this their way of hoping the subpoena goes away because God only knows what a treasure trove on info linking Fusion GPS and other Democrats and maybe even Republicans as well. Reports state that the Fusion GPS was initially funded by a Republican donor.

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.

After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day

Oh what a tangled web they weave, when the Clinton’s practice to deceive. So the Mueller investigation was looking at Trump for collusion with the Russians, yet now we have evidence of collusion of Hillary, the Democrats and the Russians.  A presidential campaign paid for International dirt (Russia) that went thru American intel agencies and was used by the FBI.

Twitter explodes on the news of Hillary Clinton and DNC involvement as many run like rats off the sinking ship. The DNC was quick to distance itself from the new found info that it was in fact the DNC and Hillary’s campaign who was finding the “dirty” dossier stating, “Chairman Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization.”

Clinton lawyer, DNC helped bankroll research that led to Trump-Russia dossier.

The Democratic National Committee and a lawyer for Hillary Clinton helped bankroll research that led to the now-infamous dossier on alleged ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian government operatives, sources familiar with the matter said Tuesday.

Marc Elias, a lawyer who represented the DNC and the Clinton campaign, retained a Washington firm, Fusion GPS, to carry out the research, the sources said. Services from the firm were retained from April 2016 until before the election in early November, a source said.

The involvement of the Clinton campaign and the DNC could lead to the first legal test for investigators on Capitol Hill. Fusion GPS has asked that a federal judge block a request for the House Intelligence Committee that would grant lawmakersaccess to Fusion GPS’ bank records. The firm argues that turning over the records would violate its constitutional rights.

Late last week, Trump speculated on Twitter that the dossier might have been funded by Democratic officials.

“Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?” Trump tweeted Thursday.
