Justice Dept weighs inquiry into Clintons and Uranium One

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“The US Department of Justice says it has asked prosecutors to scrutinise the Clintons’ charitable foundation and a uranium deal. In a letter, the agency said an inquiry could be launched into the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One sale. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a Senate hearing there is currently no basis for Republican calls to appoint a special counsel to investigate. The issue is a longstanding political grievance of President Donald Trump. Democrats have called Uranium One a ‘massive diversion’ from the investigations dogging Mr Trump’s presidency. His aides are currently the focus of inquiries by a special counsel and congressional committees into whether they colluded with alleged Kremlin attempts to sway last year’s US presidential election.” (11/14/17)
