Transcript: Jeff Sessions Considers Special Counsel to Investigate Clinton Foundation

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering naming a special counsel to investigate various Hillary Clinton-related activities.

Sessions sending a letter to the House Judiciary Committee before his scheduled testimony, expressing interest in further probing allegations that the Clinton Foundation received donations tied to the Obama-era Uranium One deal, which gave a Russian-owned company financial interest in U.S. uranium production.

Hillary Clinton was secretary of state at the time, and had a voting seat on the panel which approved the 2010 deal.

According to the New York Times, Sessions’s letter appears to be a response to when President Trump expressed his frustration over the justice department.

Early on, Sessions recused himself from the ongoing Russia investigation headed up by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump reportedly blames Sessions for the investigation.

Therefore, as people close to the White House tell the Times, Sessions’s letter could stall the president from firing him.

Democratic Representative Adam Schiff criticized the move, tweeting, “If the AG bends to pressure from President Trump and his allies… it could spell the end of the DOJ as an independent institution.”
