The Russian witch hunt may be about to boomerang on the Clinton criminal empire as the Justice Department mulls appointing a second special counsel to probe the global influence peddling clearinghouse that is the Clinton Foundation.
In a shocking turn of events, somnolent establishment lapdog Jeff Sessions has requested federal prosecutors to determine whether the issues surrounding the murky Russian uranium deal and other matters merit the appointment of a second special counsel.
The Attorney General would seem to be in violation of his oath to Democrats that he recuse himself from all things Russia and will surely have the hide peeled off of his ass during Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing for even daring to do his job for once.

Attorney general Jeff Sessions is leaving open the possibility that a special counsel could be appointed to look into Clinton Foundation dealings and an Obama-era uranium deal, the justice department said Monday.
In a letter to the House judiciary committee, which is holding an oversight hearing Tuesday, the justice department said Sessions had directed senior federal prosecutors to “evaluate certain issues” recently raised by Republican lawmakers.
The prosecutors will report to Sessions and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and recommend whether any new investigations should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require additional resources and whether it might be necessary to appoint a special counsel to oversee an investigation, according to a letter sent to congressman Robert Goodlatte of Virginia, the judiciary committee’s Republican chairman.
Assistant attorney general Stephen Boyd did not say in the letter what specific steps might be taken by the justice department to address the lawmakers’ concerns, or whether any of the matters Republicans have seized might on already be under investigation.
The letter comes one day before Sessions is to appear before the judiciary panel for a justice department oversight hearing. Democrats on the committee have already signaled that they intend to press Sessions on his knowledge of contacts between Russians and aides to the Trump campaign.
It also comes as he has faces criticism from Trump over the lack of investigation as well. The president tweeted on November 3, “everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems.”
Any appointment of a new special counsel, particularly in response to calls from members of Congress, is likely to lead to Democratic complaints about an undue political influence on the department’s decision-making.
Such a move would drive Democrats into a bloodlust rarely seen and will all but certainly result in calls for Sessions to be removed for perjury as well as spur media insinuations that he too is in cahoots with the Kremlin
Would Sessions do it?
His record so far as Attorney General says no but there is another possibility which is that by appointing a special counsel with a hand-picked selection of investigators loyal to Clinton, Obama and the Deep State it would serve to bury the crimes forever.
It is important to remember that his recusal that led to the appointment of Mueller and created the perfect environment for Russia hysteria to thrive in.
