Sessions discusses possibility of special counsel on Clinton and uranium

Jeff Sessions who is the Attorney General is raising the possibility of naming a new special counsel for the investigation of potential wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation. This is according to a letter sent by the Justice Department on Monday to House Republicans. In the letter to the house members, Sessions had asked the top prosecutors of the Justice Department to look into a variety of allegations that have dominated the conservative media outlets in recent months which includes suggestions that a government panel of the United States approve the sale of a large uranium firm to Russian interests in exchange for donations to the foundation that was founded by Bill and Hillary Clinton.

In the letter the Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said that the Attorney General has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in the letters. Boyd added that these senior prosecutors will be reporting directly to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General and will provide suggestions as to whether any of the matters which are currently not under investigation should be opened, whether any of the matters which are currently under investigation, need further resources, or whether any of the matters need the appointment of a Special Counsel.

The letter from Boyd specifically referenced the claims of the law makers of the unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation as well as all the issues related to the sale of the mining firm Uranium Ore in the year 2013. This letter was sent a day before Sessions was scheduled to make his debut appearance before the House Judiciary Committee. This particular move from Session could relieve not only the concerns of Republican law makers but also those of the US President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly taken to Twitter with urgent calls for the Justice Department to delve into the alleged illegality.

Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on the 29th of October that he had never seen such Republican anger and unity as he was concerned with the lack of investigation on Clinton who made the Fake Dossier, the Uranium deal with Russia, more than 33,000 emails deleted, the Comey fix and a lot of others. As Trump wrote on Twitter, the press was filled with reports of an indictment in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Donald Trump implored that there is so much guilt by the Democrats and Clinton.
