USA attorney general vows quick decision on Clinton prosecutor

Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Department of Justice ordered prosecutors to examine "certain issues" raised by congressional Republicans, according to a letter Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd sent to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and other committee members, who have been demanding a special counsel be assigned to probe Clinton.

Following Mr. Sessions' recusal, responsibility of the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election was passed to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to take over the investigation into that matter and all related matters.

"You said one time that good people don't smoke marijuana", Cohen said, referring to statements Sessions made as a Senator a year ago.

The dossier was just one of many dirty tricks Hillary Clinton's campaign used in an effort to undermine her opponent's campaign during the 2016 election cycle.

"The president speaks his mind; he is bold and direct in what he says", Sessions told members of the House Judiciary Committee.

In another Senate hearing last month, Sessions testified he had no improper involvement with Russians and was not aware of anyone else from the campaign who did.

In his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions had pledged to senators he would recuse himself from matters involving Clinton, given his involvement with the Trump campaign. Goodlatte said in his opening remarks that he felt Sessions had generally done a good job in his first nine months as attorney general, though he noted his tenure had "not been without difficulty".

"While I do not challenge [Carter Page's] recollection, I have no memory of his presence at a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club or any passing conversation he may have had with me", Sessions said.

During the March 2016 meeting, Sessions shut down Papadopoulos' idea of engaging with Russian contacts, according to a source familiar with the matter.

After the hearing, news reports emerged showing that Sessions had himself met with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at least twice in 2016.

Well, it's in the manual of the Department of Justice about what's required.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Monday federal prosecutors to evaluate if a special counsel should be appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton's dealings concerning her foundation and the sale of USA uranium assets to Russian Federation.

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said she thought it was ludicrous that Sessions had managed to get away with so many non-answers to House questions. "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.

Trump has repeatedly criticized his Justice Department for not aggressively probing a variety of conservative concerns.

In April 2015, The New York Times published an article echoing much of the Schweizer book, including one sensational contention that not long after the Russians said they wanted to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow.
