Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly considering appointing a second special counsel to re-investigate the alleged wrongdoings of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, and the Obama administration in response to persistent concerns among the Republicans.

Such matters include former FBI director James B. Comey’s handling of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business activities while serving as Secretary of State.

 It might also look into some of the Clinton Foundation’s dealings, in particular, the 2010 Uranium One deal, which was approved by the Obama administration.The administration then allowed Russian nuclear energy agency Rosatom to acquire Canada-based Uranium One, which had significant mining stakes in the US.

The deal is being used as an example of “Clinton taking Russian money to influence US policy,” however previous investigations into the matter had found no signs of wrongdoing, saying that there was no evidence that Clinton had participated in any discussions regarding the sale. Additionally, the purchase required approval from several government agencies which the former secretary of state had no control over.

President Trump has repeatedly criticized the Justice Department for not doing enough to investigate a variety of conservative concerns.

In response to Bob Goodlatte, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd therefore replied that “Sessions had directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters.”
