Justice Department Considering GOP Calls for Clinton Special Counsel




WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered senior federal prosecutors to evaluate whether a special counsel should be appointed to investigate concerns raised by Republicans, including alleged unlawful dealings by the Clinton Foundation and the sale of a uranium company, according to a document obtained Monday by NBC News.

In a letter to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said the Justice Department lawyers would make recommendations to Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about whether an investigation should be opened or expanded, or whether a special counsel should be appointed, related to a host of issues of concern to Republicans.

Boyd said he was neither confirming nor denying whether the Justice Department was currently investigating any of the matters the letter refers to.
"While this policy can be frustrating, especially on matters of great public concern, it is necessary to ensure that the Department acts with fairness and thoughtfulness, and always in a manner consistent with the law and rules of the Department," Boyd wrote.

Boyd's letter didn't specify the nature of the allegations involving the Clinton Foundation, but in a letter calling for the investigation, Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., discussed "WikiLeaks disclosures concerning the Clinton Foundation and its potentially unlawful international dealings" and "connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine."
Those issues, as well as the sale of Canadian uranium interests to a Russian company in 2010 while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, have become Republican talking points and have been fixtures on conservative media for months.
