Since The Hill broke jaw dropping news last month that the FBI sat on an investigation of bribery and collusion with Russia and the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, and others, Americans have been screaming for an investigation into the Uranium One deal. The one person who should be calling for an investigation into these potentially treasonous crimes and REAL Russian collusion would be Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R), who was appointed by President Trump! It is incomprehensible that Sessions would recuse himself from this matter, but it appears he has.
Yet today Breitbart News is reporting;
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a small group of lawmakers in late September he was recused from appointing a special counsel to look into potential corruption surrounding the Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS’s work on the Trump dossier, according to one of the lawmakers present.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he and other House Judiciary Committee Republicans had met with Sessions at the Justice Department on September 28 in advance of an upcoming committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later this month.
Gaetz said that when he asked Sessions to appoint a special counsel to investigate the 2010 Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS, the attorney general stood up, said he could not discuss the matter because he had recused himself, and walked out of the room, leaving them with a group of Rosenstein staffers “who showed no interest.”
“He said that anything that had to do with 2016 election, or Russia, or the candidates in the 2016 election, fell under the scope of his recusal, and he left the room,” Gaetz said.
“It was Sessions’ position that his recusal on the Russia matter divorced him from any oversight on Uranium One and Fusion GPS. That’s troubling. Sessions’ recusal is a function of his involvement in the Trump campaign. In no world does that impact his judgment as it relates to Fusion GPS and Uranium One. But he views the recusal more broadly. That’s troubling because that puts Rosenstein in charge,” he said.
Gaetz said Rosenstein’s staffers provided “no answers” and “no timeline for answers.”
“It must be very frustrating for the president that the Department of Justice is overreacting to fictitious allegations and subsequently paralyzed to truly vet incursions into our nuclear assets,” he said. “Attorney General Sessions does not believe he has the power to appoint a special counsel on this matter.
Other House members present at the meeting were Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and Louis Gohmert (R-TX).”
Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokesperson, claims that others in the room don’t remember anything like that being said and they discussed the subject. However she would not answer on whether Sessions recused himself or not. To date, Sessions has not confirmed publicly is he has been recused of the Uranium One deal.
The Breitbart piece also states,
When asked by radio show host Hugh Hewitt last week if he was recused, he responded: “Well, the, you know, of course there was one case that’s already been prosecuted, and people have been sentenced on, but as to what may happen after that, if anything, I’m not able to comment.”
When asked if he was recused from any investigations into the Clinton investigation, he responded, “Yes.”
How many crimes will Hillary Clinton get away with? How is it possible that our Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who is a Republican and appointed by Trump has recused himself from the Trump dossier and now the Uranium One Russian collusion? Even General John Kelly is calling for a special investigation into the Uranium One deal along with President Trump! This cannot be swept under the rug! There must be an investigation into Uranium One, AND Clinton Campaign, DNC, and Obama Campaign funding of the Trump Dossier, AND now revelations from Donna Braziel the former DNC chair that Hillary laundered money and stole the primary election from Bernie Sanders!!!
We demand Justice!!!
