Justice Department Weighing Special Counsel for Uranium One Dealings



By: Kristina Wong
13 Nov 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed senior federal prosecutors to examine whether a special counsel is needed for the Uranium One deal and other issues raised by Republican House Judiciary Committee Republicans.

According to a letter dated November 13 from an assistant attorney general to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA):

These senior prosecutors will report directly to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General, 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. This will better enable the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General to more effectively evaluate and manage the caseload.

The GOP members had previously raised in two letters and during meetings with Sessions issues including the 2010 Uranium One deal and potential corruption by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his leaking of memos to prompt a special counsel in the Russia investigation.

A Tweet posted by NBC News Monday stated, “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate whether a special counsel should be appointed to investigate concerns raised by Republicans, including alleged unlawful dealings by Clinton Foundation and the sale of a uranium company.

I wouldn't get too excited about this yet. Just because Sessions has directed some people to look into the situation, doesn't necessarily mean a special prosecutor will end up being appointed.

Here's more on it:

Excerpt from article:

The hearing was starkly divided. Majority Republicans demanded that Sessions appoint a second special counsel to investigate a series of issues involving Trump's election rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, including the sale of a uranium company to Russia while she was U.S. secretary of state.

Sessions was cautious on that score. When Republican Representative Jim Jordan detailed what the controversy "looks like" to him, the attorney general responded: "'Looks like' is not enough basis to appoint a special counsel."

Earlier, Sessions confirmed that he has asked senior federal prosecutors to look into the potential appointment of a second special counsel.

Personally, I don't think we can have too many special counsels.  Der Fuhrer ran as "the jobs president" and those kind of jobs really pay well.

After hearing Session's testimony, Sessions may very well be having the DOJ, under his direction, handle this case, as well as the Comey and Lynch."matters".   He stated he was having it looked into whether such matters were or (werenot) included in his earlier recusal. If DOJ handles it, Sessions will be doing the job he is suppose to be doing.  He made a big point about the DOJ has only appointed a Special Prosecutor on two occasions and generally it is the responsibility of the DOJ together with the FBI to investigate and prosecute crimes against the United States, not that of a Special Prosecutor.

I am not convinced of anything.  I keep my mind open and examine the facts as they come to light.
