Sessions Throws Cold Water On GOP Fever To Appoint New Special Counsel

Freedom Caucus founder Jim Jordan is one of the leading voices pushing for Attorney General Sessions to create a probe to look into James Comey

Congress and the American people want answers.

But while the Mueller-led special counsel team meanders, there is uncertainty about whether issues like the Uranium One deal and fusion Global Positioning System will receive a thorough investigation.

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee pressed Mr. Sessions to explain whether he was pressured to restart investigations targeting President Trump's former democratic rival. Republican lawmakers are calling him to probe former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the 2016 election.

If these protections go away, there is no guarantee that the Department of Justice won't begin to implement federal prohibition laws in states that have moved in a more common sense direction on marijuana policy.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed Tuesday to decide quickly whether to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's alleged mishandling of classified materials when she was secretary of state.

The Congressmen-both of whom site on the Judiciary Committee-published their ultimatum in a Fox News op-ed Monday.

Sessions insisted in his testimony that he is not leaning one way or the other on the appointment of a new special counsel and that he is awaiting a detailed presentation from senior officials at the Justice Department.

During an Oval Office meeting with the president on November 1, Pirro denounced Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his refusal to go after Clinton, who was Secretary of State when the deal was approved. Before interviewing several witnesses?

Well, it's in the manual of the Department of Justice about what's required. Typically, the Department would issue a subpoena or get a warrant and seize it.

Jordan, in response, further asserted that it doesn't warrant probe that Clinton's campaign had paid the company that produced Steele Dossier.

"Why was FusionGPS co-founder Glenn Simpson meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya both before and after her meeting with Donald Trump, Jr.?"

"Why is the Federal Bureau of Investigation so reluctant to tell Congress and the American people if the dossier was the basis for a FISA court order permitting the government to spy on Americans associated with President Trump's campaign? If the dossier was a legitimate intelligence document relied on by the court, then why not just tell the country?"

What's it going to take to actually get a special counsel?

"I'm really not involved with the Justice Department". The deal was approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the US, which is made up of nine top government officials - including Mrs. Clinton at the time.

Those already critical of the administration have devoted a fair amount of energy to identifying all of the flaws in how the Justice Department responded compared to its predecessors, and they're not necessarily wrong.

Mr. Conyers followed up asking whether Mr. Sessions would even be able to provide oversight of such a review.

The best defense is a good offense and we need to make our voices heard loudly and clearly now, before it is too late.

It's an important exchange, especially as Republicans in Congress also want a special counsel to look into Uranium One, where Republicans claimedClinton gave Russian Federation 20 percent of America's uranium when she was secretary of state. "If not, he should step down".
