Looks like the Clintons are getting a special present this Christmas from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions has ordered prosecutors to take another look at the Uranium One deal and the bribery case involving Hillary and Bill Clinton. He wants them to talk to the FBI agents on the case to see what the evidence was because of reports that the case was stifled during the Obama administration.
From Daily Wire:
While Clinton has vehemently denied that she did anything wrong, a fresh round of reports in recent months from The Hill and Circa News suggests that there is more to this case than meets the eye.
An October report revealed that the FBI started gathering evidence in 2009 of Russian officials engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering that were involved in the Uranium One deal:
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
But rather than prosecute, despite the evidence, according to reports, the DOJ sat on the evidence for the next four years, not informing anyone about what they had found about Russian bribery efforts to corrupt U.S. businesses while the Obama administration approved two major decisions helping Putin and Russian nuclear ambitions.
Ironically, Robert Mueller, the present special counsel in the Russia probe, was the head of the FBI when this investigation into Russian bribery efforts for control over atomic energy inside the United States was allegedly stifled.
Hillary Clinton has had the utter audacity to claim that she cannot be investigated by the Trump administration because it would constitute an “abuse of power.”
“If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust our justice system,” Clinton said.
In other words, how dare anyone examine what the Obama administration appears to have already stifled on my behalf?
Of course, that wasn’t an ‘abuse of power.’ It’s only an abuse of power if someone might actually be finally investigating fairly her alleged crimes.
Democrats are naturally flipping out, while those that have longed for a fair investigation into Hillary Clinton are thinking they may finally be seeing daylight.

Just like they did with Trump's wiretapping lie, Fox News is lying about Uranium One and Fusion GPS to cover for Trump — and then demanding your hard-earned tax dollars to investigate their manufactured "scandals." https://t.co/IZyiDXhhzr

How about somebody in Washington shining a light on the Uranium One deal, what Hillary Clinton and other members of the Obama administration had to do with making it happen and why, of all countries, Russia would be allowed to obtain Americas Uranium
Follow the money.

Hopefully, now that is some real attention to the case and the FBI informant who had a lot of information is able to be heard from and kept in good condition to testify.
