Monday's HOT MIC
The Sessions DOJ has been under increasing pressure from the right to start looking into some of the major scandals of the Obama era, including Uranium One, improper unmasking of Americans, the Clinton Foundation and more.
According to Circa News, multiple congressional referrals for investigations over the past year regarding these scandals have indeed led to ongoing investigations.
DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told Circa that "all allegations are reviewed in light of the principles of federal prosecution. And while some may find it frustrating at times, the Department has a policy against confirming or denying the existence of investigations in order to maintain the integrity of the process until and if charges are filed."
Sessions is expected to be asked questions about the status of such investigations when he appears before the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow.
When conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt asked him about the Uranium One case, last month, Sessions wouldn't say whether or not there was an investigation, or if he had recused himself from it..
"Of course there was one case that’s already been prosecuted, and people have been sentenced on," he said. "But as to what may happen after that, if anything, I’m not able to comment."
