The Clintons’ day of reckoning has arrived.
After years of skating through scandal and investigations, their time has run out.
And Jeff Sessions is about to drop a bombshell that is bad news for Bill and Hillary.
Conservatives – as well as Donald Trump – have long questioned why there has not been a special counsel appointed to investigate the corruption at the Clinton Foundation and the questionable circumstances surrounding the Uranium One sale.
Responding to the criticism, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking prosecutors to evaluate the need for a special counsel to investigate these matters.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions is raising the possibility of naming a new special counsel to investigate potential wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, according to a letter the Justice Department sent Monday to House Republicans.
Sessions has asked top Justice Department prosecutors to look into a variety of allegations that have dominated conservative media outlets in recent months, including suggestions that a U.S. government panel approved the sale of a large uranium firm to Russian interests in exchange for donations to the foundation founded by Bill and Hillary Clinton, the letter to House members says.
“The Attorney General has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said in the letter obtained by POLITICO and sent to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), among others.
“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,” Boyd added.
Boyd’s letter specifically referenced lawmakers’ claims of “unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation,” as well as issues related to the sale of the mining firm, Uranium One, in 2013
The letter was sent one day before Sessions is scheduled to make his first-ever appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.”
While the State Department could not have stopped the sale of Uranium One to a Russian company, they could have recommended against it.
If their recommendation was strong enough, the sale may have been stopped.
But around the time of the sale, over $100 million from Russia flowed into the Clinton Foundation’s coffers.
It smelled like a pay-to-play scheme that required a real investigation.
After months of dragging its feet, the Department of Justice is finally moving to hold the Clintons accountable.
