Justice Department Confirms Prosecutors Are "Evaluating" Claims Raised Against Hillary Clinton
In a letter to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said the Justice Department lawyers would make recommendations to Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about whether an investigation should be opened or expanded, or whether a special counsel should be appointed, related to a host of issues of concern to Republicans.
Sessions said at his January confirmation hearing that he would recuse himself from any investigations involving Clinton given his role as a vocal campaign surrogate to Trump.
More broadly, though, the renewed scrutiny of Clinton and the foundation reflects a political score Trump has a stated interest in settling, at a time that he would like far less interest in his own campaign's contacts with Russian Federation.
It was not the first time that Sessions, who was a senior Trump campaign aide and Republican senator, has revised his comments about contact between the campaign and Russian Federation.
"The Attorney General of the United States should not be held to a different standard than the young police officer whose life you ruined", Jefferies said. Giustra has said he sold his stake in the deal in 2007, while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were vying for the Democratic presidential nomination.
In the midst of an intense House Judiciary Committee grilling of Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his contacts with Russians, Rep. Steve Cohen derailed the interrogation to ask about drugs.
On Monday, the head of the Justice Department's legislative affairs office responded to those requests by confirming that "senior federal prosecutors" were "evaluat [ing] certain issues raised in your letters".
A photograph posted on Trump's Instagram account shows that Papadopoulos, Sessions and Trump were all seated at the same table in that meeting.
Asked by Jordan what it would take to get a special counsel investigation into the dossier or various Clinton-related accusations, Sessions pointed to department policies on the procedure, as well as to the fact that there has only been two special counsel investigations.
Now, Sessions said he recalled a March 2016 meeting with Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos.
Jeff Sessions's memory works in mysterious ways.
"That is a lie", Sessions told the panel.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment Monday.
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 Russian Federation while she was USA secretary of state. "I have made a decision to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States", he said.
"The Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents".
Gordon has also said that Papadopoulos went around him and Sessions and that they did not know he had continued to try to arrange such a meeting.
