The Justice Department is not actually promising to prosecute Hillary Clinton
If that were to happen, it would be a profoundly troubling moment for the rule of law in the United States. But the bells (in this case, at least) may be ringing prematurely. "They should be looking at a lot of things, and a lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me".
Politically motivated prosecutions are, indeed, a danger.
It also follows interviews in which Mr Trump said he was "very frustrated" that he couldn't get the department of Justice or FBI to investigate what he believed was wrongdoing under his predecessor. "It doesn't strike me as an especially acute situation for them". Thus, even if the politics of the moment actually support the criminalization of partisan differences, government lawyers have an obligation to play the long game, not just for today's defendants, but for tomorrow's victims.
Jordan has led the charge of GOP lawmakers calling for a special counsel investigation to be launched in addition to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.
Jordan listed off a number of reasons why he believed a special counsel should be appointed, pointing to issues stemming from the Fusion GPS dossier on President Donald Trump's ties to Russia, which has been partially substantiated and partially discredited; former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state; and the 2010 Uranium One deal, which involved a Russian energy business acquiring a controlling stake in the Canadian company by that name which, at that time, controlled 20% of USA uranium extraction ability, The New York Times reported. The former is always going to be necessary but awkward; the latter is the stuff of banana republics.
In response to the silence from the Justice Department, Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) asked for them to do so. And at first blush, the document does seem alarming, as did the initial wave of headlines about it.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions will appear before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday morning to provide testimony regarding oversight of the Department of Justice.
Shortly before leaving on his trip to Asia, Trump said he was "very frustrated" that the Justice Department wasn't investigating Democrats for allegations of questionable dealings and relationships.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd responded to the request by saying Sessions had "directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters" and would consider if "any matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel".
But these are not normal times.
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee pressed Mr. Sessions to explain whether he was pressured to restart investigations targeting President Trump's former democratic rival. "And why did the Justice Department put a gag order on the informant?"
