It Exists: DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton
daily beast ^ | 3/9/2019 | Betsy Woodruff

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.

The existence of a letter documenting Sessions’ directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trump’s top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didn’t exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017––the same day Whitaker emailed Sessions’ letter to Huber.....

The FOIA request was made on the very same day the Sessions letter was sent out?

No leaks. And why do you think that is?

Sorry you guys sat around thinking nothing was happening for a year and a half, but that goes with the NO LEAKS territory.

Whitaker delivered "Sleepy" Sessions (recused) directive to Huber to investigate Clinton Foundation, Uranium 1, and "other matters"?

(excerpt from article)

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.

So, cats and kittens beyond the trees, Huber (at Session's direction) has been investigating the Clinton Foundation, Uranium 1, and "other matters" for a year and a half with NO LEAKS.

Oh, unless of course you think that Sessions, Whitaker, and Huber are all Derp State plants.

I'm sure some of you do, of course.

BIG BIG BIG HAPPENINGS.

Looks like a liberal finally dug in to find the truth rather accept what the headlines say.

Hilarious reading liberal comments as the truth suddenly starts to sink in “Pé Resists

“VERY MUCH”

It seems not much to hold the traitors to account. They’ve been allowed to resign one by one; other than that, zilch.

“Almost 16 months since the letter was written! What’s happened since then?”

Barr (or Whitaker) seems like the obvious answer.

It’s a heck of a coincidence that the FOIA request was filed on the same day that the letter was sent to Huber.

Struggle we much?

You're starting to appear desperate in your denial.

Funny, though.

Why can't you just admit that Granny had you fooled all along?

While you and the other folks were disparaging Sessions non-stop, he was quietly doing yeoman's work. In other words, he was doing his JOB, instead of dancing in front the cameras like other AGs did.

Greatest bait-and-switch sting operation in the history of the American justice system.
