The U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly open to appointing a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal and alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, a potential bombshell development in the unfolding scandal.
Democrats have accused Republicans of launching a spurious investigation of Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, to divert attention from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged links between President Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.
The letter comes after Rep. Robert Goodlatte called on Sessions twice this year to appoint a special counsel to investigate matters linked to the 2016 election. Goodlatte's wish list included the Clinton Foundation's involvement in the sale of Uranium One and other "various dealings", as well as the FBI's investigation into Clinton's private email server.
Earlier this month, Trump told reporters that the Justice Department "should be looking at the Democrats".
"Hopefully they are doing something and at some point, maybe we are going to all have it out", Trump said.
Boyd said he was neither confirming nor denying whether the Justice Department was now investigating any of the matters the letter refers to. Among issues Goodlatte wants investigate are how the Federal Bureau of Investigation handled the probe into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state, several issues involving the Clinton Foundation, and multiple matters involving a Russia's nuclear energy agency's purchase of the Canadian mining firm Uranium One. Sessions, who was a Republican senator for Alabama before he was appointed attorney general, is also set to testify before Goodlatte's committee on Tuesday and was likely to face questions on the topics raised in the letter.
The letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd did not confirm the existence of any investigation, and did not guarantee that the prosecutors' evaluation would lead to any investigations.
In asking for a second special counsel in July, Goodlatte wrote that he wanted to "request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation's justice system and its investigators".
The DOJ will reportedly wait for a review to be completed by the inspector general before deciding what "additional steps" may need to be taken regarding the Uranium One case.
