A couple of weeks ago, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) made public an FBI investigation that had been buried by the Obama administration that revealed the Clinton Foundation was involved in the Uranium One deal with Russia and that deal involved bribery and money laundering. Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved the sale and then shortly thereafter received millions of dollars in donations to the Clinton Foundation.
After saying earlier this year that he would not prosecute Hillary Clinton for any of her crimes, he has come under a great deal of pressure to look into the Uranium One deal and the Clinton Foundation. This move opens the door for the appointment of a special prosecutor.
Attorney General 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.
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…
Not only has some congressional Republicans asked for an investigation into the Uranium One deal, but President Donald Trump has also asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into the deal. Sessions has realized that if he doesn’t investigation the Clinton Foundation that he would likely be out of a job.
