Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday pledged to act properly on a request by some members of Congress for a special counsel to investigate a Russian company's us uranium purchase, but he stopped short of promising to appoint one.
Also unclear Tuesday was how Sessions might appoint such a special counsel for some of the issues, given that he has recused himself from investigative matters involving the 2016 campaign due to his vocal support of Trump and fierce public criticism of Clinton.
"Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn't looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems".
That's out of 53 US attorneys nominated so far by President Donald Trump, according to the department. That letter raised immediate concerns about the possible politicization of the DOJ because it seemed Sessions was willing to use right-wing talking points endorsed by the White House as grounds for a criminal probe into Clinton's time at the State Department.
Republicans have said special counsel Robert Mueller can not impartially investigate the matter because he led the Federal Bureau of Investigation at the time of the deal.

"Dangling [a special counsel] is risky, period", he said.

Current and former Justice Department officials could not recall the last time the department publicly dangled the possibility of a special counsel appointment.
Listed among those issues was the sale of mining company Uranium One to Russian Federation and possible ties to The Clinton Foundation. The FBI probed that issue in 2015 and 2016, but Justice Department officials decided there wasn't enough evidence to pursue a full-fledged investigation.
The deal gave the Russian company a controlling interest in a fifth of USA uranium reserves.
"Each of those are pretty special factual situations, and we will use the proper standards, and that's the only thing I can tell you, Mr. Jordan" Sessions said.
Former FBI chief, Robert Mueller, is now investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the run-up to last year's election.
Sessions added: "I would say the Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents, and that would be wrong".
