On Monday, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd responded to a request by House Judiciary Republicans for a new special counsel in a letter that said senior Justice Department prosecutors would evaluate the matter.
Sessions responded to these revelations by insisting that he'd met with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in his capacity as US senator (not as a Trump surrogate), and that they did not discuss the 2016 election. Those details complicate Sessions' effort to downplay knowledge of the campaign's foreign contacts. Page has said publicly that he told Sessions past year that he was preparing to visit Russian Federation. Many have wondered what Hillary has on the Attorney General.
Adding to the questions for Sessions was the release by the House Intelligence Committee last week of a transcript of a private interview with Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser to the campaign who acknowledged that he had contact with a high-level Russian official while on a trip to Russia past year.
But will Clinton herself ever be indicted as a result of Mueller's investigations?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is leaving open the possibility that a special counsel could be appointed to look into Clinton Foundation dealings and a uranium deal during the Obama administration.
In October, Sessions testified to the Senate that he did not have any "continuing exchange of information" with Russian operatives - and that he wasn't "aware of anyone else [on the Trump campaign] that did".
Sessions asked with a slight smirk. Goodlatte said in his opening remarks that he felt Sessions had generally done a good job in his first nine months as attorney general, though he noted his tenure had "not been without difficulty".
Sessions' testimony appears likely to keep the controversy over Russian Federation boiling as Special Counsel Robert Mueller accelerates his investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
"Each of those are pretty special factual situations, and we will use the proper standards, and that's the only thing I can tell you, Mr. Jordan" Sessions said. Charging documents in that case indicate that Papadopoulos told the council "that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump" and Russian President Vladimir Putin. But he said he had no memory of that conversation.

After the hearing, news reports emerged showing that Sessions had himself met with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at least twice in 2016. The move, detailed in a letter to Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, comes after Trump has criticized his Justice Department for not doing more investigation of his former political rival. "But honestly they should be looking at the Democrats", Trump said.
Sessions has asked Justice Department prosecutors to decide if a special counsel should be appointed to investigate certain Republican concerns, including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation, according to media reports on Monday.
