Hillary Clinton believes that having her investigated in regards to possible ties to Uranium One would be an abuse of power.
This is utterly absurd… she stated that it would make the United States seem like an “authoritarian regime.” WOW.
In fact, Axio reports (via a Mother Jones interview):
“If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust our justice system … It will be incredibly demoralizing to people who have served at the Justice Department, under both Republicans and Democrats, because they know better. But it will also send a terrible signal to our country and the world that somehow we are giving up on the kind of values that we used to live by and we used to promote worldwide.”
WOW! Right? demoralizing? Authoritarian regime? I say it a lot but this one actually takes the freaking cake, ya’ll!
Recently, Jeff Sessions has told prosecutors to start looking further into alleged “unlawful dealings” of Clinton Foundation.
“These senior prosecutors will report directly to the attorney general and the deputy attorney general, as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit a special counsel,” Stephen E. Boyd, an assistant attorney general, said in the letter to the House Judiciary Committee.
Fox News reports that in a Justice Department letter, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd writes that Sessions “has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters” in response to previous requests from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte to investigate Uranium One.
Sessions also asked others in the Justice Department to look into using a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation, a New York Times report claims.
The prosecutors will investigate possible misconduct at the Clinton Foundation in relation to the 2010 decision to approve the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company, to Russia. This deal resulted in Russian control of over 20 percent of American uranium.
