Attorney General Sessions Directs Prosecutors to ‘Evaluate Certain Issues’ Involving Clinton

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” involving the Uranium One scandal, opening the door for a potential special counsel being appointed to investigate.

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd responded to congressional Republicans requests to further investigate the fact that “Russians used bribery, kickbacks, and extortion to get a stake in the U.S. atomic energy industry” in 2010.

The illicit activity led to millions of dollars being sent to the Clinton Foundation at the same time that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat on a committee that gave a green light to the relevant deals.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley called for a special counsel on the Uranium one scandal.


Boyd sent a letter responding to Republican concerns, saying “The Attorney General has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters.”

“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 said.


Hmm … maybe there is something to be said for Sessions’ comments that the Trump administration is “restoring the rule of law,” quite possibly beginning with Hillary Clinton.


Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano however, is warning that a special counsel is not necessary and the investigation should be carried out by the Justice Department.


The letter adds that some other matters are already under investigation by the department’s Inspector General’s office – including an evaluation of the FBI’s handling of Clinton’s email scandal.


Finally, we have some tangible evidence that Clinton is being investigated.
