It Exists: DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton
The Daily Beast - Betsy Woodruff - link

After it claimed no such document existed, the Justice Department just unearthed a letter Matt Whitaker delivered to the Utah U.S. attorney directing a review of how the department handled the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One issues.



Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote the letter on Nov. 22, 2017 for Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Matt Whitaker, who was Sessionsí chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, ďAs we discussed.Ē He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Departmentís Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Nov. 13 of that year.

The existence of a letter documenting Sessionsí directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trumpís top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didnít exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017ĖĖthe same day Whitaker emailed Sessionsí letter to Huber.

The request asked for documentation of the directions Sessions gave Huber about the review of the Clinton investigations. After DOJ failed to produce any written directions, American Oversight sued.

And on Nov. 16, 2018, Senior Counsel in the Office of Information Policy Vanessa Brinkmann, who handles FOIA Requests, said a lawyer in Sessionsí office told her no such letter existed. That lawyer spoke with Huber and Whitaker, she said in a declaration filed in federal court, and then told her that ďwhen the Attorney General directed Mr. Huber to evaluate these matters, no written guidance or directives were issued to Mr. Huber in connection with this directive, either by the Attorney General, or by other senior leadership office staff.Ē

That wasnít correct. On Wednesday of this week, a DOJ lawyer told American Oversight that they had found the document that kicked off Huberís work.

The letter, which American Oversight provided to The Daily Beast, is consistent with what the DOJís chief of legislative affairs has told Congress: that Huber is scrutinizing the sale of a Canadian uranium mining company with interests in the United States to Rosatom, a Russian state-owned company. Republicans have long alleged that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined to oppose the deal because of contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

The DOJ hasnít brought any charges related to the foundation or the transaction. Some Hill Republicans and conservative media commentators have long argued this is because the Department hasnít sufficiently investigated it. They have called for the appointment of a special counsel to scrutinize the transaction.

Sessions didnít bite. Instead, he directed Huber to review what the Department had done regarding the matter. Huberís work has drawn significant interest butóunlike Special Counsel Robert Muellerís probe into Russian influence during the 2016 electionóthere is scant public information about what fruits, if any, it has borne.

Some Republicans say Huberís work is too little, too late. Democrats, meanwhile, argue itís evidence of the Trump administration weaponizing law enforcement to target its political rivals.

You DO remember during one of the debates when Grumpy Trumpy told Hillary he'd have the Justice Dept. look into her past if elected, right? It wasn't exactly a campaign promise, but I think we should contact the President and ask why he never followed through, if the Lefties want something to complain about, that'd work. :rofl:

Ironic statement coming from the party that did so in the Obama era and spawned the Meuller investigation.

ďEven after this long, itís still deeply shocking to see the black and white proof that Jeff Sessions caved to President Trumpís worst authoritarian impulses and ordered a wide-ranging investigation of his political opponents based on demands from Congress instead of the facts and the law.Ē


Wide ranging investigation? They looked into the sale of Uranium to a Russian firm. What we don't know is how much HRC and BC got in the pockets for that transaction.

I have thought for a long time that the entire Barak/Hillary house of corruption would begin to shake and then crash. It is beginning and will build to a crescendo of proof of crimes against political opponents, the Constitution and the American people. Whether or not Sessions was smart enough to know what he put in motion is debatable but it has put Huber on the griddle and the heat has been turned up.

It's a big deal because the Left has been investigating Trump for 2 years looking for proof he colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary. The 33,000 e-mails Hillary deleted, then wiped her computer clean with 'bleach bit', probably would have contained damaging communications about her dealings with selling 20% of the U.S.'s Uranium to Russia. In a nutshell, Hillary Clinton's the one who colluded with Russia, not only to sell our Uranium, but also to derail Trump's presidential campaign. And we on the Right would like to see her prosecuted for her crimes...

For the first 2 years, republicans controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency. Why wasn't this taken care of at that time?

It should have started with Jeff Sessions, but wasn't. I think Sessions is an honest man, but either in way over his head or the opposition had him over a barrel. Regardless, the fact remains that Hillary's been able to avoid the same scrutiny Trump's been under since taking office...

They have been surgically removing all these Obama/DS loyalists from the DOJ/FBI over the past 2 years. Without them gone, how well do you think the investigations would have gone? Mueller is neck deep in the Uranium One deal. You can't investigate him or charge him if he is actively pursuing the President on a wild goose chase. Once he releases his report and is gone, then the Declassification of the FISA warrants and a whole lot more will come to light that will bring down a great many people involved in this charade. It goes all the way up the chain to Obama himself who was kept informed of everything (he oversaw the operation to some still-as-of-yet unknown extent).
