After it claimed no such document existed, the Justice Department just unearthed a letter Matt Whitaker delivered to the Utah U.S. attorney directing a review of how the department handled the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One issues.

 

Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote the letter on Nov. 22, 2017 for Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Matt Whitaker, who was Sessions’ chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, “As we discussed.” He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Department’s Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Nov. 13 of that year.

Originated at the daily beast so it has a heavy anti-Trump spin but a find is a find.

Oh, and this nails it - I'm never voting for Jeff Sessions again!

Just finished "Obstruction Of Justice" and one of the chapters was titled Sessions is Mr Magoo, how true that is

For a more comprehensive review of the FOIA request and its context I would recommend reading this article from The Conservative Treehouse:

Here's the moneyshot:

Ironically, and perhaps serendipitously, the American Oversight FOIA request was submitted on November 22nd, 2017, the exact date Sessions’ chief-of-staff Matt Whitaker was sending a letter to Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber.  Had they waited a day, what AO  were looking for would have surfaced. However, with the Sessions-Huber communication falling outside the FOIA request window, the DOJ response was delayed until yesterday.

The lefties want to see deceit and corruption but what it is in truth is bureaucracy in full bloom.

Yes, CT is all over everything on Obama, Clinton, the DNC and Mueller!   ::thumbsup::

Oh, and Vanessa Brinkmann best lawyer up.  Shake those bureaucratic trees and catch as many DeepStaters as possible!

Interestingly the letter states:

“Your review need not include matters that you determine are within the scope of the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.”

So we can reasonably infer that John Huber saw the unredacted Rosenstein ‘scope memo‘ defining the parameters of what Mueller was supposed to investigate.

In broad terms Jeff Sessions was asking John Huber if the U.S. Attorney saw any reason to initiate a new or deeper investigation, and/or if any “matters would merit the appointment of a Special Counsel.”

It has been sixteen months since that letter, so we can assume Huber did not identify a need for another ‘special counsel’; and/or it would have been just an absolute mess to have two special counsels investigating both ends of the same corrupt enterprise.

Four months after this November 2017 instruction to John Huber, in March 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions faced even stronger congressional demands from Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy and again House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte.  Now people were getting frustrated.

By March 2018 most of the “spygate” corruption was visible; Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages were in the public domain; numerous Senior FBI and DOJ officials were fired, quit, demoted and outed within a bigger conspiracy afoot.  The existence of DOJ-IG Michael Horowitz’s internal investigations was now widely known; congress was demanding a special counsel, and the public was looking for answers from the Attorney General…. The basic theme: what the f**k are you doing?


Obviously he was putting the process in place to sweep this into the proverbial memory hole.

Thus, we are back to square one and tree-shaking.

The way I read it, Sessions stayed within the guidelines of his recusal, restricting Huber to the issue not
dealing with the Clinton Campaign.  As far as "Horowitz"  accomplishing anything, the IG doesn't have
prosecutorial authority.  Sessions should have been fired 20 minutes after he recused himself.

IG can refer...he chose to defer...

It's the DeepState Shuffle...

And Huber has done nothing which is still ahead of Sessions' efforts...

And We the People once again get f**ked up, down, over and sideways!!!   ::outrage::
