    Jeff Sessions raises prospect of special counsel on Uranium One deal

    It's about time; and then let's go ahead and look into the DNC/Clinton campaign's hiring of a law firm to PAY A FOREIGN AGENT to PAY RUSSIAN OFFICIALS TO ASSAIL A POLITICAL OPPONENT, after lying about any involvement in it for over a year....shall we?

    As well as the apparent use of the created FOREIGN CLAIMS to acquire FISA WARRANTS on American citizens...



    Jeff Sessions raises prospect of special counsel on Republican concerns

    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is leaving open the possibility that a special counsel could be appointed to look into Clinton Foundation dealings and an Obama-era uranium deal, the Justice Department said Monday.

    In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee, which is holding an oversight hearing Tuesday, the Justice Department said Sessions had directed senior federal prosecutors to "evaluate certain issues" recently raised by Republican lawmakers.

    The prosecutors will report to Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and recommend whether any new investigations should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require additional resources and whether it might be necessary to appoint a special counsel to oversee a probe, according to a letter sent to Rep. Robert Goodlatte of Virginia, the Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman.


    The letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd did not say what specific steps might be taken by the Justice Department to address the lawmakers' concerns, or whether any of the matters Republicans have seized on might already be under investigation.

    Any appointment of a new special counsel, particularly in response to calls from members of Congress, is likely to lead to Democratic complaints about an undue political influence on the department's decision-making. But Boyd said in the letter that the department "will never evaluate any matter except on the facts and the law."

    Some have specifically said they want to know more about whether Obama's Department of Justice was investigating the purchase of Canadian mining company Uranium One by Rosatom, Russia's state-owned nuclear company, in 2010. The agreement was reached while Clinton led the State Department and some investors in the company had relationships with former president Bill Clinton and had donated large sums to the Clinton Foundation.

    My recommendation to anyon who may come under this investigation is that they reply to all questions with "I don't recall".
    One can be sure that he who says he knows knows nothing

    Umm, just today on Capitol Hill he said there wasn't enough to warrent a special counsel.

    Sorry to disappoint you.
    "Sir, I exist!" cried a man to the Universe.
    "However," replied the Universe, "that fact has not created in me a sense of obligation."

    For someone who can't recall this much he's either a liar or incompetent.

    A special counsel should be appointed. If he refuses to do so he should be fired.

    Yes, because that's how our justice system works. Fire anyone in charge who doesn't pursue politically-motivated investigations until you find someone who will.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."
    - Eugene V. Debs (1855-1926), American labor leader

    That's the card that Trump seems to be playing. The guy in charge telling his justice department to investigate his political rivals. Banana Republic anyone?
