It Exists: DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton!!

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 Sessionsí chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, ďAs we discussed.Ē He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Departmentís Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Nov. 13 of that year.

The existence of a letter documenting Sessionsí directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trumpís top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didnít exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017ĖĖthe same day Whitaker emailed Sessionsí letter to Huber.

The request asked for documentation of the directions Sessions gave Huber about the review of the Clinton investigations. After DOJ failed to produce any written directions, American Oversight sued.

And on Nov. 16, 2018, Senior Counsel in the Office of Information Policy Vanessa Brinkmann, who handles FOIA Requests, said a lawyer in Sessionsí office told her no such letter existed. That lawyer spoke with Huber and Whitaker, she said in a declaration filed in federal court, and then told her that ďwhen the Attorney General directed Mr. Huber to evaluate these matters, no written guidance or directives were issued to Mr. Huber in connection with this directive, either by the Attorney General, or by other senior leadership office staff.Ē

That wasnít correct. On Wednesday of last week, a DOJ lawyer told American Oversight that they had found the document that kicked off Huberís work.

The letter, which American Oversight provided to The Daily Beast, is consistent with what the DOJís chief of legislative affairs has told Congress: that Huber is scrutinizing the sale of a Canadian uranium mining company with interests in the United States to Rosatom, a Russian state-owned company. Republicans have long alleged that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined to oppose the deal because of contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

The DOJ hasnít brought any charges related to the foundation or the transaction. Some Hill Republicans and conservative media commentators have long argued this is because the Department hasnít sufficiently investigated it. They have called for the appointment of a special counsel to scrutinize the transaction.

Sessions didnít bite. Instead, he directed Huber to review what the Department had done regarding the matter. Huberís work has drawn significant interest butóunlike Special Counsel Robert Muellerís probe into Russian influence during the 2016 electionóthere is scant public information about what fruits, if any, it has borne.

Some Republicans say Huberís work is too little, too late. Democrats, meanwhile, argue itís evidence of the Trump administration weaponizing law enforcement to target its political rivals.

ďThe fact that they only Ďfoundí it the same week Matthew Whitaker was heading for the exit makes it hard to see DOJís previous denial as anything but a deliberate attempt to conceal the extent to which President Trumpís authoritarian demands were being put into action. The authoritarian instinct in the Trump administration needs to be investigated. Sessions and Whitaker shouldnít escape accountability by skipping town.Ē

Reached for comment, a DOJ spokesperson said Huberís review is still underway.
