Special Counsel May Investigate Clintons, Uranium One Deal

(LifeZette) Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed senior federal prosecutors to look into whether the Department of Justice should appoint a special counsel to investigate the Clinton Foundation and issues connected to the controversial Obama-era Uranium One deal, multiple news organizations reported Monday.

Sessions requested that the prosecutors evaluate “certain issues” pertaining to the deal, which allowed a Russian government-owned company to purchase a uranium firm with mines in the U.S.

In a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and other committee members obtained by Fox News, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd responded to the committee’s requests for a special counsel appointment.

“The attorney general has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” 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.”

NBC News also obtained the letter, noting that Boyd emphasized that he was neither confirming nor denying the existence of a current DOJ investigation, as per the department’s policies.

“While this policy can be frustrating, especially on matters of great public concern, it is necessary to ensure that the department acts with fairness and thoughtfulness, and always in a manner consistent with the law and rules of the department,” Boyd wrote.

Although Boyd wouldn’t confirm or deny the existence of any current investigations, his letter was issued in response to a letter Goodlatte penned earlier in which he mentioned his concerns about the “WikiLeaks disclosures concerning the Clinton Foundation and its potentially unlawful international dealings” and “connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine.”

At the time of the Uranium One deal, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of state.

In addition, several investors in Uranium One were Clinton Foundation donors and had ties to her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Goodlatte also requested that the DOJ investigate how its own policies and the FBI’s own procedures “were not followed in connection with, or in actions leading up to or related to” former FBI Director James Comey’s public announcements made during the 2016 presidential election.

These pertain to the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

“The Department has forwarded a copy of your letters to the IG [inspector general] so he can determine whether he should expand the scope of his investigation based on the information contained in those letters,” Boyd assured Goodlatte. “Once the IG’s review is complete, the Department will assess what, if any, additional steps are necessary to address any issues identified by that review.”

President Donald Trump publicly and repeatedly has voiced his concerns about the DOJ and FBI’s handling of the scandals connected with Clinton, her family’s foundation and the Uranium One deal.

“Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems,” Trump tweeted on November 3.

“….People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!”

    Ain’t gonna happen. They are clintoons. The deck is stacked against America and against justice.

  • usscolumbus

    No one has ever been able to bring the Clintons to justice! What makes you think it is going to happen now? There are too many fingers in this pie and if Bill and Hillary go down, so are a lot of others in the government!

    • RealAmerican407

      That sounds very accurate. The agencies that we trust to reign in political corruption and hold those who break laws accountable have themselves been politicized and corrupted.

    • jmortensen

      Like most of the dimms and at least
      1/2 of the rinos !

  • RealAmerican407

    Yeh sure, just like the FBI “investigated” the Hillary email scandal right?

    Oh that’s right… Loretta told Comey to refer to it as merely a matter and not an investigation.

    My bad.

  • therealworld

    When Comey, Lynch and Huma Mahmood Abedin all shoot themselves in the back of the head The Clinton’s will blame Them.

    • Donovan Blaylock

      Hillary’s Wo-MAn is busy these days

  • Hildegarde

    Robert Mueller has already destroyed evidence on Hillary and Comey’s crimes

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    I am tired of the Clintons of getting away with their crimes!

  • Gregg Parker

    We will see…

  • tightwad

    Justice delayed is justice denied. Every week that goes by without an investigation into obvious guilt is one less week Hillary will be behind bars.

  • jmortensen

    MAY ? investigate.. give me a Break !

  • SA Ander

    See is believe in.

  • rennyangel2


  • Raymond Miller

    What do you want to bet that they appoint a Democrat to do the investigating.

  • Kimberly

    Why is Rosenstein still there? Why are ObaMAO’s people still there? I know it takes time but this is a position that should have been filled in the first month or two. Why is Sessions there? Trump needs to fire him ASAP. Who cares how it looks? ObaMAO and his gang of thieves didn’t care how anything looked? Why is the GOP so spineless?????

    • Sally Koller

      It could be because Obama spied on them which is one of his malicious trade marks so he is probably black mailing all of them. I for one care less about whatever they did if they would just support our President and patriotic Americans and get rid of the communist left and their useful idiots.

      • Kimberly

        Sally, I understand and agree with you, but if ObaMAO has dirt on them, it doesn’t really explain why Trump is keeping them around. That’s my point. This President has NO use for the useful leftist idiots.

        • Sally Koller

          I really want him to fire or just boot out these communist traitors . It’s very disturbing that if comrade Obama the communist mole really is blackmailing all these people he illegally spied in his typical lawless fashion , I wish these people would realize that whatever they have done the moral thing to do is just admit and put America and Americans before themselves. I know how painful and probably humiliating this would be for them ,but in spite of the corrupt and lying main stream media I hope that no matter how terrible their indiscretions are most moral people would forgive them for their self sacrifice because it would mean saving our country much sooner. Thank You Kimberly for interesting and intelligent comments. However if these troublemakers are actually traitors of the communist left or rhino traitors I think he needs get them out of the government and away from him all other good people and investigate them for treason.

          • Kimberly

            I agree. It seems as though finding anyone with some integrity in D.C. is almost like finding a needle in a haystack. That’s why the left hates Trump so much. He’s not beholden to anyone so he cannot be ‘gotten to.’ Trump is cleaning house so I guess we just need to be more patient. Hopefully, by the end of his first term, these traitors will be gone and things will be smoother. Notice how there are no more leaks since Kelly’s been in charge and Priebus is gone. Makes me wonder what team Preibus was playing for.

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    They have been dragging this out for a long time. I will be happy to see it end!

    • Sally Koller

      We all will . The most evil and depraved people in America are The psychopathic Clintons and the dirty traitor Obama .


    Move ahead, and “dig out all the hidden evidence, then “Hang High” all the Clintons, Coney, Lynch, Holder, Meuller, OBAMA, for all the corruption and lies from the previous 8 years!!

    • Sally Koller

      That’s right , hang them high upside down and assassinate them the way Mussolini was executed . The imbecilic antifa useful idiots don’t even get it that as THEY are the fascists .

      • JWH (NRA LIFE)

        A Rather interesting reply from an intelligent individual!! Thank you very much!! The person that should be Hung upside down is George Soros who funds all these radical extremest groups in order to destroy this culture, society , and this Country!! My ancestors were “BLUE BLOODS that founded this Country, such as “DANIEL VEAZEY” (Coronal) in the REVOLUTIONARY WAR or SUMNER VEAZEY, (winner of CMH) in the SPANISH AMERICAN WAR!! IF “ANTIFA RADICALS” were to cause major disruption in my rural community in the California foothills, the streets would run deep with their blood!! The radical left tries to modify and interpret US HISTORY to serve the ulterior motives!! The “SO CALLED EDUCATORS” today choose to influence young minds with “POLITICAL CORRECT” NEW AGE BS to generate their version of GEORGE ORWELLS 1984!! Their version of a “PROPER SOCIETY”!! I am an “OLD SOB”, that has lived for 76 years and won’t put up with any “NEW AGE BS to Destroy the Culture and Society of this GREAT COUNTRY!!!

        • Sally Koller

          It sounds like you come from a patriotic family , and that’s great. My family does too and we value our freedom in this great country. George Soros deserves a very painful death for interfering with both Europe and America when none of us are interested in his immoral and degressive nonsense. . I think he deserves to be tortured to death, but then that’s also what Hillary and Obama deserve . Hillary’s been a harpy and a bully since she was first lady so the people who actually voted for her have to be functional illiterates. As for the obvious traitor Obama my extreme dislike of him grows daily. How dare that abomination lie about being a moderate before he was elected , and then turn into his true self as a person who despises America and Americans . That communist mole did everything possible to destroy America ! I still believe that George Soros , Hillary and Obama are apostates of he!!. I am a very nonviolent person as a Wife ,mother and grandmother and a Christian but I never thought I’d see the day when the evil and the stupid would try to destroy this great country that is the champion of world freedom. All the usual idiots of the left should read George Orwell ‘s 1984 to understand the dangerous and bleak existence of a totalitarian communist regime. Unfortunately many young people today are functional illiterates because of sight reading instead of phonics .That was a communist plot to dumb down Americans so we would do as we were told by the dictators. God Bless You and keep all righteous people safe.

        • Lynn Johnston

          Well, you sound savvy, get out there and do something! You’re not dead, we need HELP!!! I think your ancestors would expect that from You! As you have informed us. I agree with all you have said!!!

  • Teresa Barrett

    I have very little doubt that they have something on Sessions, hence his delay in going forward with this. And Rosenstein is part of Obama’s corrupt regime, so there’s no doubt he’s got dirt on his hands. I’m sure if Trey Gowdy starts looking into this, they WILL find all of the crimes committed by Obama, Hillary, Bill, Mueller, Holder, Lynch, Rice and the rest of the swamp dwellers! Just get to done already!

  • R G

    Jeff Sessions HAS TO GO. He is too tired and/or confused and/or has NO spine and/or is being threatened/bribed. President Trump needs to assign someone that will put Hillary and crew behind bars within 24 hours. Enough BULL$#!T already.

  • Donovan Blaylock

    If you don’t prosecute the Clintons, Mueller, McCabe and Rosenstein, we the people will. At least half the men with Badges and guns need to turn them in for COMPLICITY

    • Lmcyber

      Start reading the facts bro! There is nothing to prosecute, and I mean nothing. You just don’t like that fact that the Trump campaign was in collusion with Russia and basically cheated, and was discovered. It was pretty obvious to the majority in this country what he did, and is still doing with Russia. And there are legal limits and repercussions to what trump did. It was wrong and I can’t imagine how loud you would be screaming today if the tables were turned and Clinton was in Trumps place. Look at the facts, and understand what he did. It was wrong and if this were Clinton I’d be screaming along with you.

      • John Bertl

        Yes, look at the facts and you see there is nothing there concerning Trump. However, Clinton is a much different story. She used her office to accept bribes and sold USA assets

        • Lmcyber

          Have you not been following the news lately? Did you not see that Donnie jr colluded with Wiki Leaks Julian Assange with the stolen DNC emails that Russia stole, and Donnie jr accepted all that information and disseminated it. On top of it, he even publicized the website that showed where the Wiki leaks info was, while donnie sr, was the day after publicizing it at his rallies.

          On top of it, the FBI is looking at 60 different ruble and money transfers that came from the Kremlin and distributed to the tune of $380K, which was slated for the 2016 election.

          How about Papadapolous or Carter Page or Hope Hicks. There is so much info on these people. Papadapolous has been indicted, as well as Manafort and his protege. Next comes Roger Stone and Carter Page. The collusion has already been proven. You are behind the times. You need to do some reading and catch up. The indictments have just begun, and honestly it was a very scuzzy thing for Trump and his family and his campaign to do. He deserves to be impeached and the rest indicted.

  • Bearcat

    Let’s see Hillary is the LEADER of all this carp with out her non of this would have happen she started the wheels rolling when BILL was PRES. Sessions is to close to all of this and I don’t think he can do any thing but appoint a special investigator to do the job for Muller and Rosenstein is involved in it up to their necks when all is said an bone some one is going to jail for a long time and while all this is going on the main stream media will have a field day with President Trump blaming him witch they are doing that already

  • John

    So POTUS TRUMP may have someone who may have bumped into someone who may have been Russian and poof the Russian-Trump connection is born with the help of a B$ dossier paid for by HRC. This feeds the propagandists and Dems for a year with zero proof and gets a special council BUT HRC. the Secretary of State gets $ millions from RUSSIA and the Dem lain nothing to see here. TYPICAL

  • Lmcyber

    There is not a thing to investigate with Uranium one. Even Fox news came out and explained how the decision was made by nine agencies, with one of them being the State Dept. In fact, Clinton wasn’t even there for that review and decision process and she would have had no impact on which way the decision went. On top of it, it is a Canadian company, not Russian and Russia could not do anything with that uranium without Canada’s permission.

    Again, repubes causing trouble for no reason. Just to be mean!!

  • Ronald Show

    The DOJ should have been the first place cleaned out of obamas people. Once that gets done maybe just maybe we’ll start seeing some charges and convictions against soros,obama and clinton. That is if the evidence doesn’t get destroyed before then.

  • frankie gatturna

    Get rid of sessions hw a waste of space. He is a coward. We n÷d aomeone with courage. If they think ×e the people are gonna let hillery slide .rthey dont know america .

  • frankie gatturna

    They are already setting us up to let us know that the corrupt are still in power. Get ready America cuz they’re going to tell you that it doesn’t Merit and investigation and we’re all stupid

  • disqus_rzTFAbNVji

    If clinton goes down so does the doj, fbi, muller and sessions to start. That means nothing is going to happen . Everyone is in the SWAMP no matter who you name
