REPORT: Sessions considering a Special Prosecutor to investigate Uranium One deal…

Jeff Sessions is now considering a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Uranium One deal under the Obama administration as well as donations to the Clinton Foundation:

FREE BEACON – Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering appointing a special counsel to investigate “certain issues” Republicans have raised in recent weeks, including a Russian bribery scheme and whether donations to the Clinton Foundation influenced the sale of Uranium One.

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd on Monday sent a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) indicating that Sessions has asked senior Justice Department prosecutors to evaluate and make recommendations to him and others on whether “any matters not currently under investigations should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any merit the appointment of a special counsel.”

A trio of House and Senate Committees are already investigating the Obama-era approval of the Uranium One deal. The letter comes after Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley asked Sessions to look into the Uranium One issue several weeks ago, and several House Judiciary Committee members pressed Sessions to appoint a special counsel to look into the matter in a private meeting in late October.
