When one thinks of corruption, one immediately thinks of Hillary Clinton. Perhaps one of the most egregious examples of Clinton’s pay-to-play deals during her time at Obama’s State Department is the Uranium One deal. Nothing about Uranium One passes the smell test, quite frankly. Conservatives across the country, and within Congress, have been literally begging Trump’s DOJ to investigate Hillary’s shady deal with the Russians.
So far Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been largely silent on the matter-when he’s not recusing himself from all things Russia that is. Now, however, Sessions is sending signals that he might be ready to start looking into the Uranium One scandal:
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.
“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.
Could it be that justice is finally going to be done? Will President Trump fulfill his promise to lock Crooked Hillary up and throw away the key? Only time will tell.
Clear your schedule and grab some popcorn, ladies and gents. Things are about to get even more interesting in D.C.
