Finally! Old lazy boy Jeff Sessions is supposedly considering appointing a special counsel to investigate the Clinton Crime Family and the Uranium One scandal. If this turns out to be true, it’s about damn time lazy boy Sessions got off his duff and finally did something about the Clinton Crime Family. Of course, this could also be just rumors dropped by Sessions ahead of his congressional testimony tomorrow to try and make sure Republicans go easy on him. Considering how soft Jeff Sessions has been as Attorney General so far, I’ll believe it when I see it.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” requested by congressional Republicans, involving the sale of Uranium One and alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation, leaving the door open for an appointment of another special counsel.
In a letter first obtained by Fox News, the Justice Department responded to July 27 and September 26 requests from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and other committee members, who called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the matters in question.
The letter comes on the eve of Sessions’ testimony before the same committee, scheduled for Tuesday.
“The Attorney General has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote.
“These senior prosecutors will report directly to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General [Rod Rosenstein], 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 the appointment of a Special Counsel,” Boyd wrote.
