Jeff Sessions considering second special counsel to investigate Republican concerns over Clinton

"Leahy's remarks come a day before Attorney General Sessions is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee". "Goodlatte took particular aim at former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James B. Comey, asking for a second special counsel to evaluate the leaks he directed about his conversations with President Trump, among other things".

WASHINGTON ― Attorney General Jeff Sessions, facing an dissatisfied boss and increased scrutiny over this knowledge of the Trump campaign's dealings with Russian Federation, is weighing whether to appoint a separate special counsel to zero in on allegations against presidential rival Hillary Clinton and other Democrats, a Justice Department official disclosed in a letter to Republican members of Congress on Monday.

He similarly recused himself from a separate investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and in May, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead that probe.

He dropped the bag and bystanders mistook the noise caused by the commotion for gunfire, Brown said. The incident did not pose any danger to people at the airport, the department's Twitter post said.

Sessions was apparently at a campaign meeting in March 2016 with Trump, campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and others where there was discussion of setting up a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Supreme Court takes up California abortion law
California is defending the Reproductive FACT (Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency) Act, passed in 2015. The centres provide advice to women with unplanned pregnancies, with an aim of persuading them not to go through with abortions.

In apparent anticipation of those concerns, Boyd said in the letter that Justice Department "will never evaluate any matter except on the facts and the law".

Franken said he expects Sessions will be asked about contact with Russian Federation when he testifies Tuesday before the House panel, and he hopes the attorney general will "answer those questions honestly". His letter, signed by 19 other Republicans, said that Judiciary Committee members were concerned that Mueller might not have a broad enough mandate to investigate other election-related matters, which he said included actions taken by Comey, Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying about his communications with Russian-tied individuals regarding information about Hillary Clinton.

They tied the knot twice as per Hindu and Christian rituals, just like the sequence straight out of their film Ye Maaya Chesave . Yesterday on 12th November, Akkineni Nagarjuna hosted a grand reception for newly Wednesday couple Chaitu and Sam in Hyderabad.

On Monday, the head of the Justice Department's legislative affairs office responded to those requests by confirming that "senior federal prosecutors" were "evaluat [ing] certain issues raised in your letters". He noted the Justice Department Inspector General already was investigating several aspects of the Clinton email case and said once that probe was complete the department would assess "what, if any, additional steps are necessary to address any issues identified by that review". That issue has been at the forefront of each of his congressional hearings even as Sessions has labored to promote the Justice Department's work and priorities, and Tuesday's appearance is unlikely to be an exception.
