(Worthy News) - Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’s considering appointing a special counsel to look at whether the FBI properly handled the investigation into Russia’s purchase of uranium rights and donations to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton led the State Department.
In a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, Mr. Sessions said he wouldn’t confirm or deny whether there was an investigation but that he has asked senior prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” raised by Mr. Goodlatte.
He said that review will help him and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decide “whether any matters merit the appointment of a special counsel.”
Mr. Sessions also said the Justice Department’s inspector general is looking into whether then-FBI Director James B. Comey botched procedures in his handling of the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s secret emails. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
